Friday Night Rally

The season is finally upon us. From now until April we'll be trekking up to the mountain each weekend. After full days at work and school, friday night rallies take some effort, but its always worth it when we wake up on the hill!

Let it snow!

Delicious Things

I spotted all of this awesomeness as I walked to lunch today. Yummy.

This Sucks

 Who doesn't love a good pun (see title, golly I'm witty).  These are so bad that they are awesome.  Spotted here
 

Ultimate H.N.O.


Now that Salt & Straw and Bamboo Sushi are neighbors on always hip NW 23rd, the ultimate HNO (huppie night out, duh) exists and is effortless.  Its almost too easy.  Maybe its so easy I did it twice this week.  That is a whole lotta sustainable, organic, local, premium, hipster, and keeping portland weird for one week, (not to mention expense - but that is no fun to talk about.  It isn't cheap to roll huppie style, but damn its delicious).  If I were you, or you, or you, you, you - I'd plan a trip to PDX stat just to get in on the seasonal flavors at S&S.

Family Table Art

We are still flying high on our turkey day family fun.  There certainly is something special about having many generations gather around the table for a meal.  I adore the art below, celebrating the experience.  Spotted it here.

Funny Confession #183

Thank you Kate Spade for making this tee. I probably need to rock it every day. Lately my babes love to laugh at my attempts to communicate with them in French. They esp love to mock me when I try to read. No respect!

Minivan Fun

Warning: watching this video will make you want 5 kids, and a minivan.  For real.  Now that you have been warned, go ahead, enjoy.

Rollin' with our cousins

Marco!



Today is a big day for college football.  It is fun to watch, but in between games we are also making time to follow ski racing.  In case you missed it, Tahoe's own Marco Sullivan had a huge day.  This recap will make you smile, even if you don't know him.  If you do know him, perhaps you popped on your Marco Rocks hat (from Whistler 2010). 
Some quotes from Marco about today (from here), giving us goose bumps...

***********

It's set in immediately. It was a little bit emotional at the finish. Just to have that happen after a few down years and to start out the year like this, is beyond my expectations.

I wouldn't still be racing if I didn't think I could still compete. This year, my place on the team was a little bit in jeopardy. I lost a lot of sponsors. I worked really hard this summer and for it to show on the first race of the year was special.

My goal was top 10 and to exceed that was awesome.
***********

I love that he is still at it because he believes in himself.  Others may have been doubting him, but he believes.  I hope his season continues to be this good!

Cousins are special

Heros to Zeros

This has been a very interesting year.  First, JoePa screwed up and so the kids school needed a name change.  Then, more recently, Lance disappoints the world and our fitness center / swimming pool was un-named.  We rolled with both of those changes pretty well.  But ELMO?!?!  Really?  Such a bummer.  We loved this documentary, and hate this news!

Funny Take on FIS

If you are a ski nerd (or in my case, married to one), you will probably find this article about gender differences in the eyes of FIS and Vonn's failed attempts to race the with the dudes really funny.  If you are not, you can skip it.



The last bit is funniest - *Anyone who has ever partied with ski racer chicks would never call them ladies. A woman who can squat 400 pounds and shin gates at 50 miles an hour is not a lady, she’s a Motherfuckin Amazon Warrior.

Party List

If you see your name on these lists, you are invited to P's bday. She dictated the list to her brother, great teamwork.

Cousin G is one!

Team B sure throws a good party. G's first was awesome. Can't wait to go back for turkey!

Stress Love

It would stress me out to list what stresses me out, so I can't do it. 

I will say that if I made a list of blog posts that I love, this one would be on it.   I'm so lucky that mwaz is a friend to me in the real world and the blog world.


Scarf Love

Have you ever seen a more fab scarf than this one?  Me neither!

No Pressure

Hey JB, thanks - in advance- for hosting us next week.  I'd love if the thanksgiving table could look exactly.like.this.  I love it.  K?
