1 year

One year ago today, hubs and I made the biggest decision we have ever made up to this point in our lives.


One year ago today, we made a move that has done nothing but bring us even closer as a married couple.


One year ago today, we said goodbye to our family and friends and moved to Seattle.


I can’t believe it has already been a year since we left San Diego. So many amazing things have happened.

We have both started new jobs that we absolutely LOVE! Thank goodness. That would have sucked really bad to move up here for a job if it ended up being lame.


We have met so many wonderful people. I was a little nervous about how hard it would be to make friends. It’s not as easy as it was when we were kids. It is almost scary even. I forced myself to step out of my comfort zone and I’m so glad I did. Through work, Cousie D, and this blog, I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people.




Over the past year, we have even had the chance to experience the little thing called weather! From wet stuff falling from the sky, to fluffy clouds of ice on the ground, to the most beautiful sunsets ever, Seattle has shown us it all!



I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to do something a little scary. I feel like we have grown so much over the past year and we are not done yet. We are just getting started. It is official… Seattle is our home, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision.

Snow tubing!

Happy Monday friends!!! Oxymoron? Maybe. But after the fabulous weekend I had and the sunshine we are going to have today, I think this Monday is quite glorious.

Friday night was our typical P&BLL night. Amazing. Fantastic. Perfection. We watched Water for Elephants. Oh R Pats, how I adore thee.


I thought the movie was good but not amazing. I thought the book was much better.

Then I got my Ryan Gosling fill. We watched Drive. I tried REALLY hard, but I could not stay awake no matter how beautiful he was.

Saturday, hubs and I decided to try something new. We went snow tubing at Snoqualmie! Oh my goodness gracious. Now THAT is a good time.


If you go, I recommend buying your tickets online ahead of time. It sells out!


They have these big chute looking things carved into the snow. It is like a big slide. The people that work there can give you a push down or spin you down (my personal fav) or you can run and go down on your own. No matter how you do it, it is a guaranteed good time.


They had a rope that would pull you back up the hill but that was slow as molasses. Hubs and I opted to climb our way to the top each time. Dang! What a workout!! My bootay was on fire!!


I have no idea why but it made my triceps incredibly sore. Guess I don’t work those enough.

It was not a super cheap outing. It was $22 for each adult for 2 hours. I was definitely ready to be done after the 2 hours. I think it was absolutely worth the money.

Have you ever been snow tubing?!
