At first I thought, that old home on the left sure looks familiar....
Then I looked at the full shot...
Today's AT post was not really about their house, AT just used the photos from a recent article at "This Old House", all about their awesome garden.
The timing on AT's post is great...we will be having breakfast with these fab friends next Saturday in VT! Yeah, can't wait! The web (and the world) is so big and yet so small...

Ms. Mayhem - I have some strong Iowa roots and one day I may just show up in your state...so keep the red plates ready! And, when you are ready for an adventure - pack up the fam and head west - we'd love it.

The good news - you get them at costco, in a huge box that makes SIX batches.
The bad news - you can only make SIX batches and you'll want more....

So...off to Tacoma we went. We wanted to visit with O's big bro, who just moved there. It is AMAZING to have family only 2 hours away. Never in my whole life have I had any family within a 2 hour drive (wow, that is kind of sad, huh?). And Tacoma is gorgeous! How cute is their house?!?
- How about a minivan that can change diapers?
- How about a minivan that can clean itself when food crumbles fall (are thrown) or milk is spilled (spit out)?
- How about a minivan that breastfeeds? But instead of milk it is sleep-through-the-night juice?

I love everything about my own alma mater - but it has always bugged me that there is so much fuss about binge drinking, the party school image, etc. etc.
I like that PSU realizes college kids may have a few beers and they are even comfortable lending their name to a local brew. Not just any brew, they have partnered with Rogue Ale. The university agreed to let Rogue Ale brew the Portland State brand to honor the university's commitment to sustainable practices that are part of his company's culture - hence the bike logo. So Portland.
I don't know of many cities or universities that could pull something like this off without controversy. I like that Portland can.

Look at this sweet girl and her cupcake.
Her proud parents - I love this photo.
I'm still dreaming about how good the cupcakes were. They were homemade perfection.
Here he is waiting at the bus stop, this wasn't his favorite part - but he was good.

This video speaks to me. The mommy bloggers are talking about it. Toyota, you nailed it. Well done.
Looking down over a bridge. A bridge that O jumped off of (10 years ago when he lived in Maui).
