Fall…ing

So it’s cold. Not happy about it. But I am thankful that Nick and I were able to enjoy our last summer day on Saturday by swimming in Lake Washington. A friend of ours invited us out on his boat for a day and we were of course pretty excited as always to be on the water.

Not only did he take us out in his boat but we were able to take a ride on his scooters. Which was pretty fun since I haven’t been on one since I was 11 years old.

When I was young, my cousin’s dad had a motorbike, a scooter, and a 3 wheeler. It was all for us cousins to ride in around the subdivision where they lived. Since I was the youngest girl, I rode the 3 wheeler with another cousin, who’s the youngest boy. What’s funny was, we were the youngest and we were on the most dangerous ride. Go figure. It was fun though. We just had to make sure we didn’t do any turns quickly or else the 3 wheeler motorbike would be on top of us in a second. Those were good times. Makes me smile remembering all the things we did. We thought we were so cool. Revving the engines of the bikes to make sure other people heard it. We were just on the bikes riding around with no destination to go to really. I loved that.

And since it’s fall. It’s also time for shopping. Not that I need new clothes every season. But who says I can’t enjoy putting stuff together on polyvore just to see how things look?

If you’ve known me for a while, you’ll notice that I dress comfortably. I still believe in being stylish of course. But comfort is of high importance. So it’s pretty rare that you’ll see me in heels. If you do want to see me in heels, invite me to your wedding.

For this boyish sexy look, you’ll notice how loose the outfit is. Which is totally me. I used to wear a lot of tight tops. I feel that I am over that now. I haven’t been buying anything tight since last year. I’ve also been giving my old tight tops to Goodwill since I don’t see myself wearing them anymore.

I am not a fan of the cold weather, but fall is beautiful. And I get to wear boots again!

Any good suggestions on rain boots? My Rocketdog rain boots died on me after 3 months of use. Note to everyone, don’t buy their rain boots!

Labor Day Weekend

I would say it was the best weekend I have ever had this summer. We do have another week of summer left but WOW! This was an absolute highlight since we were able to go to the Gorge and watch my favorite band in the universe. Yes peeps, the UNIVERSE!

Dave Matthews Band, did such a great job last Saturday. I loved their whole set. Jimi Thing got me up and dancing and shakin what my momma gave me.

We got to watch the concert for free by volunteering for Reverb. Our job was to take photos of people. It was pretty easy yet there were a lot of very “interesting” people. So interesting that there are no words for it.

It was our second year to volunteer and 3rd year to watch DMB. We decided after watching the concert that it’s going to be an annual thing for us. Kids or no kids, we are going to watch DMB dang it! We’re also thinking about going to the Red Rocks and see his concert there. Just to see the difference between the Gorge and Red Rocks.

In other music news. I am slowly falling in love with the John Butler Trio. If you haven’t heard of them, you have to check out their website.

Anyway, after DMB, we went to visit Nick’s sister and her husband, who lives an hour away from the Gorge. We slept at their place and the following day we spent most of our time at Columbia River. Nick’s sis and her husband have a boat and they wakeboard often. So we were able to try it out again. Last year I couldn’t get up on the board ’cause the water was so cold I couldn’t hold on to the handles. So this year, I made up for last years failure. On my second attempt I got up for 3 seconds. I was in such shock that I actually got up that I fell right away. On my 3rd attempt.. well see below.

Not so bad eh? The next time I try it, I feel like I’d do better with my right leg in the front. I’d probably have more control. Even if I’m right handed, most of the time, when I do some kind of sport, I move like I was a leftie. So we’ll see how that works.

I’ll put up some photos on my next post. Can’t do that now since I am off to enjoy the sunshine. I hope everyone is out and about today.

I am a sun child.
