Photos du Jour

SweetP and I just went for a hike in the rain. So fun. What a good girl she is.

And by the way, its finally raining, yet I didn't wear the new boots...didn't want them to get all muddy. Haha.

Feeling Busty

I am REALLY feeling these faux busts. Blog friends, pleeeassse help me determine if these are a need or a want....because my gut says that getting one (SOON) may be a need....
I love the zebra, she is from anthro, so it figures she'd be awesome.
I also love this lovely - available here...

Birdie sent this to me from Akron, Ohio. Funny stuff.

How cute are these masculine cupcakes??? They come in 12 manly flavors, including "rum and coke", "beer run", "driller" and "big papi". And there are 6 styles - camo, woodgrain, houndstooth, plaid, checkerboard, and marble. Awesome, right?

There's an interesting article here about the company.

Happy New Year - Take Two

It is so warm and pretty I took the babes back to the Chinese Garden, to make up for our last attempt - when we just looked through the windows.
Miss P got all Zen on us, she slept through the whole garden.
WKF loved all the water (aka wa wa).

My favorite part was all the blooming trees. It smelled like delicious spring. Ahhhh.

WKF loved putting money in the case for these 2 cuties at the Hillsdale Farmer's Market yesterday. These little musicians knew about 4 songs, all of which happened to be favorites to WKF (including Frere Jacques - he really lit up when they played that one).

I have wanted to try this place for so long. Finally we did it. P, W, and I went for an early dinner

We ate inside the school bus - which W loved (OK, I did too, how cute is our booth?!).
And...we ended up meeting up with some friends who live in the neighborhood of GCG (lucky for them). Thanks so much L and S for joining us, I'm so glad I texted you!!

We'll be back, it was super cute, kid-friendly and really fun. Who doesn't like grilled cheese???

Z$, we'll take you here for sure sweet girl.

As an engineer, I am not sure how I feel about this news.

Team Tahoe Silver Belle

I did warn you in advance, i LOVE the please forgive me for all the related posts. But seriously - doesn't she look sooooooooooo happy!!?!? Rightfully so! Yeah!

And did you see her commercial? Too cool

And my final Julia thought for the day - I really enjoyed this article. Maybe I like a little drama...maybe I agree that NBC may have picked the "wrong queen of alpine".

No doubt Lindsay is also amazing and adorable and I want her to also do well....but Julia sure got overlooked (not by me - haha)...and now she sure is on fire. Go Jules.

And one more Olympic thought before I wrap up this post - today is men's skiing...gooooooooooooo Marco, keep the Tahoe domination going! Goooooooooooo Marco!

Funny Confession XLV

The weather here lately has been UNREAL. Sunny, warm, amazing. Trees blooming, birds singing, amazing.

But...I have new super cute rain boots that I am just dying to wear.

Liberty for Target?!

Dear Target,

I hope this isn't another mean tease like the one you pulled with Orla Kiely (I looked and looked at multiple target stores for a specific apron which was featured in all the ads and never could find it - see below). **

Because much like the hype for the Orla Kiely line, your new Liberty collaboration looks awesome. I especially think that I love some of the clothes (dresses and jammies) and the bedding and the place settings.... I can't wait to see it all in person. I hope that happens.

My calendar is marked for March 14th, don't let me down. I'm busy and don't have time for games. Thanks.

**here is that darling apron I never did find...

Another Day...

....another medal for Julia!!!

Silver again. Way to go!!! Too cool.
O is on a train up to Vancouver, so we can all look forward to another guest post upon his return.

YEAH JULIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Julia,

I imagine you are kinda busy up there in Vancouver, with 3 more events to go and a medal ceremony to attend. But if and when you check out Portland Sunshine, I want you to know we are soooooooooooooooooo fired up and proud of you. We will be wearing our tshirts tonight while we watch the coverage on TV.

Lots of love from your Portland Fan Club.

Go Team Tahoe!

Yum, Again

Here are the cupcakes I envisioned for my party...maybe in 4 years....
Aren't they cute?

Um, Yum!

I NEED to make and eat this. Soon. Nutella Banana bread?!?!? Yes please.

I saw it over here.

MWaz, if I recall, you also love nutella. You should probably try this too.

This is how I roll these days. One on my front, one on my back...and around the (hilly) block we go. Love these babes!

Happy (Belated) Birthday! A perfect TEN!

HHHHAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPPPPYYYYYYYYYYYYY Birthday GN you vixen! We love you! Your crazy uncle O cannot wait to see you later this week to celebrate!

More Team Tahoe

Facebook is so fun...thanks to it we can follow Team Tahoe in Vancouver, behind the scenes. Here are two of the fab Tahoe girls (Julia and Shannon) at the opening ceremonies. They both look so happy (and adorable)...and this was BEFORE Shannon got a medal.
And I love this shot of Julia at the opening ceremony.
How fun is the Olympics?!?! USA! Go Team Tahoe.
Today we are cheering for Marco in the men's downhill. Goooooooo Marco.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! We popped over to the Chinese Garden to celebrate yesterday. The line was long...and naptime was just around the we just looked through the windows. Our timing was perfect, we caught the lion dancers.

Team Tahoe!

Shannon Bahrke could not be any cuter or more likeable. Have you seen how she rocks the pink hair?! We love her. She is a Tahoe City gal....and we could not be any happier for her about that gorgeous bronze medal she scored last night! Gooooooooo Shannon!!!!

We heart the Olympics! Go Team Tahoe!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yes! Yes!

SEVEN years ago...this very weekend...Oli proposed to me in the halfpipe at Stowe. I couldn't believe it (still can't). Here are some pix from that magical weekend (7 years, 4 jobs, 3 moves, and 2 babies ago).

And no, he didn't propose on Vday, he's not cheesy like that :).

Smile! You are Home

Is anyone headed to Mexico in the next month or so? If you are, PLEASE pick up a few copies of the March issue of Marie Claire Mexico and send them to me.

Here is a preview of one of their features titled (in Spanish)- "Smile, You are Home"

Kind of cool, right?

Note: I am not sure what is on the actual cover of the mag, the above "cover" is just the cover of the home section.

Update: Here it is!


We could not be more excited about the Olympic Games! I'm so glad they are finally starting! Yipee!

Sidenote: Some year I want to pull my act together and host some kind of Olympic party with cupcakes and everything.
I borrowed this great image from here.
