Last weekend Jason and I took and unexpected trip to Portland. Jason's grandpa passed away and although the circumstances for our trip were unfortunate, the time we spent with family and exploring a new city was wonderful. I really love that Portland is only 5 hours away. It's the perfect little getaway when we need a break from Spokane.

PS- Have you seen these videos? Portland is exactly like that. ;) If you haven't seen the Portlandia series I suggest you watch all the episodes! So so funny.

One down, two to go

Guess who just finished his first year of law school???
This first year was full of late nights in the library, law books all over my living room, random case stories told over dinner and a boy who worked a whole lot harder then I ever imagined! They say the first year is the hardest. Man, I hope that's true cause Jason could sure use some of that heavy load lifted. I am so incredibly proud of my husband. Some days may not have been easy, but I can tell you so far it's been worth it. Every sacrifice he is making is not going unappreciated or unnoticed. I am so happy where we are right now and the effort that Jason is putting forth to give us a good future.

Love you Sayson! One down, two to go!

Dumpster Diver

I can safely say that I now truly understand the expression, "one man's trash is another man's treasure." Today as I was taking out the garbage I spotted this little gem in the dumpster. I couldn't believe someone would throw this beautiful globe away! I immediately scanned my surroundings to make sure no one was around to see me grab it out of the garbage. Should I be embarrassed about taking things out of the dumpster? I'm new at this. I ran back into my apartment on cloud nine and grinning from ear to ear about my new treasure. Jason thought I was crazy. I don't care though. :) I swear it was just what my living room was missing. I love it!
Oh, and did I mention that it lights up?! For reals, who would through this away?
Move aside yoga, dumpster diving just might be my new thing.
