Sweet Girls

Some darling bridesmaids.  Just because I love bridesmaids. Remember?  I spotted these girls over here.  

Funny Confession #115

I honestly believe that if I rock yellow saltwater sandals summer will last longer.

Carrot Soup

Papa's carrot soup is always a favorite for these two! It is as delicious as it is messy. Merci Papa.

Putting It Out There

For the past 11 years, I have tried and tried to qualify for the Boston Marathon.  I have come painfully close on a few occasions, but in the end I have always fallen short (on one occasion by just a few seconds - ouch ouch). 

On Oct 9 I will give it another try...I'll be running the PDX marathon.  Training is going well and I really feel like this will be my year.  My babies and age maturity have made me physically and mentally stronger than ever before.

 I am sharing all of this because it is important to put yourself out there from time to time.  So here I am...out there....

Think of me on 10/9. 

Boo Irene

Facebook has been the most personal way to receive news of the Irene impact on my favorite state.  I cannot believe these images - all pulled from facebook friends pages.  My heart is sad for VT.  








Oui!

These official looking documents have been very hard to get! The kids are legit Frenchies! Before we plan a fĂȘte we want to get my paper work in order. (We realize this will take a while...). 

Did you know French kids cannot have their mother's maiden name as a middle name? Isn't that a weird rule? So little WKF is just WF in French. A bit of a bummer.  But c'est la vie.

Funny Confession#114

I've been running a bunch. This makes me an athlete. We athletes have to listen to our bodies. My body told me to eat all of this. I listened. There is peanut butter in it, hello protein.

SUP Mama

Paddle boarding pictures may be getting boring to you...but here is one more.  Our family is loving the paddles this summer.  I can't believe we live somewhere  this beautiful. 

Thank you LH for having a camera handy on the shore to capture this. 

Corn Maze-ing

You know you are big time when they make a corn maze out of you.  As I have mentioned...Tim Thomas is a stud.  This confirms it...

The Man

Issa is the man.  Go cat go.  You make us proud. 


Cork!

Vermont is a buzz with the news of this new wine bar...go DN!  Don't you love to see friends going for it?  

NYT loves PDX

A good read from the NYT about PDX.  I think its cute how NY has a crush on little PDX.  

 I told you unicycles are a common mode of transportation here...

Let the weekend begin!!!

Long, early run around the city is complete! Let's weekend!!!! 



I watched the sun rise above the NW industrial area...it was beautiful...

A lovely view of the city from the North part of town.  I had never run that strip, but I'll be back, it was great.

Rad Nails

Tiffamade is a super stylish company that delivers handmade lunch in beautiful packaging from a vintage suitcase strapped to a bike...there is so much to love about the concept, it sort of overwhelms me to think about what I love most.  But...then I realize what I love most is her fingernails.  

Bonjour Volcanos

Good morning Mt Hood, good morning St Helens, good morning sunshine! I love you all.

Wildwood

Upon reading this review, I pre-ordered my copy...like a good Portlander

Update: It arrived, it is beautiful and it is such a fun read.
Update II: Grace at D*S is talking about it, so you know its good.

Boke!

If this post made you curious...this one will make you excited.  Bring it.  Can't wait to try it.  I love the hip factor of the pop-up concept and all...but ahh! so much less be-in-the-right-place-at-the-right-time stress to deal with once they open a brick and mortar location. 

Photo du Jour

Thank you LF, I love this pic!

Urban Farms

Another reason to love on this city.  Urban farming.  Read up. 

Weddings on the Brain

I am loving wedding season this year.  Last weekend's event reminded me just how much.  I stumbled upon this new-to-me blog today and found these pretty shots.  I could spend a full day on this site.  It is so fab. 

Brides to be, take note!

Maybe its not too late to paint your church pink?

How cute are these mossy letters?


Say yes to fur.  I love a furry bride!!!  This look would totally work in VT in the fall...just sayin'. 

Brides, hurry up an find a barn-y place just like this...amazing...

Love those signs!  They did!  They did! 

I love inside furniture outside for any occasion... 
 Bridesmaids are the best, the more the merrier!  I love this!
OMG, yes yes yes!  What an entry!  RG do this. 

LOVE the pink pop necklace

Sweetest cake topper ever


This girl needs to go to Paris already

Photo du Jour

My O should make this photo his new FB Profile picture, huh?  If he ever checks my blog, maybe he will. 

Thank you BM for having a real camera handy to capture my floating family. SUP takes some balance...SUP-ing with 2 toddlers takes mad skillz. 



Summer family playdates rule.  Team M, so glad this worked out!  Let's do it again.
