Happy Halloween II

WKF and his buddies at school got really into Halloween this week.

They got to play with pumpkin guts.

And paint mini pumpkins. He got to bring his home and he was so proud, as he should be (and as am I)! It is sitting on the counter for everyone to admire.

Happy Halloween

Someone at our house was certainly in the holiday spirit last night...

Oh Hans Solo, you are so handsome...

Happy Halloween to all!

It was a sad morning at our house today...

LF has been here for a full week, and today it was time for her to hit the road again. We had a great visit and we hope she'll come back someday soon. Or perhaps we'll zip out to her island paradise (Nantucket!) for a visit on her turf.

As LF tends to do, she made the most of her visit. Be sure to check out all of her adventures over here. In the meantime, I ganked some of my favorite photos from her Oregon blog posts to share with you here on my blog...

That is her up high on the bridge over Multnomah Falls

I love that an Oregon leaf impresses a native Vermont girl!

She went to opening night of the Trailblazers...with her man (who we were so glad to meet)...

WKF and O took the ladies on a fall boat cruise, brrr...but so fun!

Girls night out...just like college, with a belly!

And PS, she is such a polite house guest...folded my laundry, unloaded dishwasher, washed her towels before leaving, played with WKF for hours, babysat one afternoon, and left us with a gift card for our most favorite restaurant - chocolate souffle, here I come!

Come back!!! xoxo

Ever since reading this book (which I really enjoyed), I have been intrigued by the business side of Facebook.

I was thrilled when AT ran this post covering the super hip new Facebook headquarters. Love it. I could work there. I could live there...

More Wedding Fabulousness

Now that I am a mom, I can openly admit that moms are usually right. And CN was so right when she told me to wait on posting the wedding pix, since more good ones were coming. Well, as I said, I couldn't wait, I had to post right then.
So here is PostII of wedding fabulousness. These pix are from the party.

Check out the scene. Hello hip. I am not sure I have ever been anywhere this cool.

Um, there were circus the reception. Wowza.

The happy couple looks on as the performers wow the crowd...

So darling and so cool, all at once...

What a good looking family photo. There may be some familiar faces at this table...remember PopPop, who made the rad play kitchen? And the lovely lady in the middle there is MamaBoo, a dear friend to me...we go WAY back. And of course you recognize CN from my last wedding post.

I have no clue who this gal is, but I am digging her dress and she inspires me to strive for a waist again some day. She looks to be having a great time, I love it.

Love the scene.

Newlyweds gettin' down.

These days, a party isn't a party unless there is a photobooth involved. Theirs looked pretty awesome. I couldn't pick just here are the get the idea...

Thank you A and J for letting me go nuts posting about your big day. What an event. Amazing. xoxo

Surf is Up!

This looks pretty serious! Huge surf competition on the OR Coast tomorrow. They are expecting waves to approach 50 feet!?!? It would be rad to check it out.

We have other plans...perhaps next year?

My Girls are Coming Back

Remember these two??
They are coming back again and I could not be more excited!
We are going to have a superfab girlie girl weekend! If it wasn't so embarrassing (lots of food and ridiculousness), I'd publish our (well thought out and much anticipated) to do list for the weekend.
I just saw KK in bean town (what a lovely hostess!), but can't wait for more time with her. And LF is fitting us in on her cross country jaunt (from Nantucket to Portland)...which she has been documenting beautifully for all to enjoy.
Hurry up ladies, Portland awaits you! Is it tomorrow yet?

Updates on Ashley and Construction

Remember this post, about my friend Ashley? Well...she got the job! Yipee! Be sure to hop on over to AT from time to time to check out her posts. I look forward to seeing how she gets busy "saving the world, one room at a time".

And since I am providing updates about that post, it is with GREAT pleasure that I announce that our contractor just started (in the last hour) the new baby room. This was a few weeks later than we had planned for, but it is a small project and should be done (and fabulous) in time for bebe2. I am excited about the plans for the new room and CANNOT wait to post some pix of the finished project.

Wow! What a Wedding

I remember so clearly when this groom was born. It blows my mind that he is old enough to be married...but the pictures make it real for me. What a wedding!!!

Um, lets start with the boots that the bride wore. Don't you love them?? They make me want to be her friend...or at least meet her for a chai. Lovely J, will you please come up to Portland for a visit...and bring your handsome groom!?

Love these shots...

San Francisco love

Wedding party and family - looking serious and fabulous all at once

Love these shots as well

I wasn't there. But I know who the life of the party was this lovely lady. She is so full of spunk and fun...and is also the proud mother of that cutey groom. What a mother in law she must be (in the best way!). CN, we love you!

Congrats to these gorgeous newlyweds.

And a big huge shout out to this photographer. WOW WOW WOW are you ever amazing!? You gotta take a look at the monkpond photography creative.

CN was encouraging me to wait on this post, until all their photos were available...but I just couldn't wait! These need to be seen! Enjoy!

Photos du Jour

If pix of my baby boy bore you...skip this post. If you want to see the cutest little dude in PDX, scroll on my friend...

WKF loves to build towers and knock them down. Sometimes he lets us play along...

He is still digging that "new" bike.

Most of the time he has the biggest eyes...but sometimes he gets so happy and smiles so hard...that those big eyes become squinty...

WKF loves his pull toys. He got 2 for his bday, and its a good thing because he likes to have one per hand...and he does laps around the table. Who needs a dog? Not me.

As you can see...we had a great weekend. Hope you did too!
