Photos at last!

OK - So I'm finally posting pictures! Sorry that it has taken me a few days.
This is me on our first day in Mexico at the Santa Maria Beach.

One of the restaurants had this cool collection of candles that they had let drip for a long time.


Me having a YUMMY strawberry margherita at one of the many little bars scattered along the sidewalks.


The Baking Soda beach! The real name is Los something, but Phil and I refer to it as the surfer beach. It is about 45 min north of Cabo San Lucas, down a random dirt road. It is a surfers paradise! I call it the Baking Soda beach because the sand is so fine and soft it feels like you are walking on Baking Soda!



Our bucket of beers at dinner one night.


This was me for most of the week - Bikini Bookworm on the beach!


Another beach that had some fantastic snorkeling!

A view of the bay in San Jose Del Cabo. Our condo building is the white one about a third from the left of the photo (if that makes any sense at all!)

This is where I spent a lot of my time when we were at the condo. Lounging with a book and looking out over palm trees, white sandy beaches and crystal blue water with thundering waves.

This is the patio of the condo. At the end of the litte rock trail is the path - another 5 feet and you are in the pool!


That's it! Those are the main photos from our trip. I hope that you enjoyed them. We sure enjoyed being there to take them. :)

Bikini Bookworm

Mexico was wonderful! 8 days of sun, warmth, relaxation, quality time with my husband and of course, good old Jose Cuervo! We left on Saturday morning at the crack of dawn from Bellingham and by the evening, we were sitting in a hot tub, with palm trees swaying in the breeze around us and the ocean pounding away.

We stayed at Phil's uncle's condo in San Jose Del Cabo which is about 20 minutes east of Cabo San Lucas. The town is smaller and less of a party town than Cabo, but it still has some good restaurants and shops. We rented a car when we were down, the plan being to balance Phil's desire for adventure and excitement and mine for a pool side book. We did get out a bit, then spent Tuesday and Wednesday just lounging around. On Thursday, we went to head up to La Paz when we found out that there was no gas! Anywhere! Apparently the ship didn't make it in in time and all of the gas stations completely ran out! It was very weird! And since we were on a very low tank anyways, we were stranded.

The manager at the condo told us to check on Friday, but when I spoke to her on Friday morning she gave me the same response as the day before "Maybe you try tomorrow." Although I was a bit dissapointed at not being able to get out to some of the beaches and did go a bit stir crazy, it was nothing compared to my poor husband. His need for adventure and to get beyone the pool started to drive him nuts! Me on the other hand, I just plowed through some more books. I read 5 books down there! Whenever we were at the beach it was me in my bikini, and another good book in my hand!

Finally on Saturday morning we got gas, headed up to a surfer beach (I call it the Baking Soda beach because the sand is so soft that it feels like you are walking on baking soda!), and then up to La Paz. We took the "scenic" route home - meaning the narrow windy road. But it was a very beautiful drive and we got to see some tiny towns along the way.

On Sunday we did some last minute shopping, packed up and headed out. Because of all the new regulations, we had to pack our liquor in our suitcases instead of just buying it in the duty free and taking it on the plane. Of the 4 bottles we brought home, 3 made it just fine. Unfortuantely, Jose ended up all over our suitcase and everything in it! 1 litre of tequila can soak quite a bit. Just made my laundry when I got home all that much more fun.

And now we are back to cold weather and the craziness of Christmas! I haven't uploaded my pictures yet, but as soon as I do, I will post some on here.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Decorations

Here is a photo of our decorated tree and some other decorations. I set up our mini tree and a few other things (including the very cute Santa from Grandma Marge) on our wine cabinet.

Christmas Parties

Tis the season for Christmas parties! We went to ProPack's last week on Saturday evening. It was held at the Loft - a very good restaurant overlooking main street in Lynden. We got to see the Christmas parade while we were watching dinner which was quite nice.
After a year and a half of friendship, there are still only 2 pictures of Mel and I together (I know - hard to believe considering that we are scrapbooking buddies!). The only other one was at the July 4th party and really wasn't the greatest. So at last, here we go - a good photo of Mel and I!

Here is Phil's cousin Alex with his wife Susan. I tried 3 shots and this was the best one of Alex!

And here we are!


The Muljat Group had their party last night at the Squalicum Boathouse. The party itself was ok. I barely know anyone since I don't work at the main office and I'm never there. But it got better when Mike and his wife Kim, Fawn and her boyfriend Austin, Phil and I all went to Anthonys - a really good seafood restaurant, for drinks and real diner since there were only appetizers at the other party.

Here is Kim and Fawn. Hot stuff!


Christmas Tree Expedition!

Last Saturday, the Gallagher family and Phil and I set out to Mt. Baker to cut down our Christmas trees. Of course the boys wanted to go up the impassable road first, before turning around and going to the easy spot with better trees anyways!
Here is Joe cutting our way through a tree over the road.
Kelly, Molly and I in the snow as the boys chop!

Ellery with her favorite boyfriend, Phil.

Phil being manly after chopping down our tree.

The beautiful road that we parked on.

Phil and Joe driving out with our trees!

Joe and Kelly (or should we say Joe) got a 17 foot tree! They have a 2 story living room and the tree is literally within inches of the ceiling! It's pretty crazy!

Finally some pictures!

OK - I finally have got pictures up of the snow storm!!!

Here is our backyard covered in snow.


The wind blew the snow up onto our front porch making it impossible to use the front door. We had to rely on going in and out through the garage.


Here is the front of our house burried in snow drifts!

Here is our cat Bandit, desperately trying to get into the house! The cats are outside cats but we let them stay in the garage during the storm because it was so cold. Bandit is a very fluffy cat which means that he got huge chunks of snow attached to his belly.

This photo show how high Bandit climbed up the screen! He was so desperate to get in!!!

The great big snow storm

As many of you know, we were recently pummeled by vicious weather around here. The snow began on Saturday night and by Sunday morning we were covered in a blanket of white. Phil took off to Mt. Baker to enjoy the powder and I enjoyed a relaxing day at home. The wind raged outside all day covering our front windows with snow making me feel a little bit claustrophobic. In the evening, Phil's drive home from Baker which usually takes around 50 minutes took 3 hours!!! There was so much snow and huge drifts everywhere.

Now you have to understand, snow in this area typically follows a pattern: the snow covers everything causing excitement amongst all (particularly kids hoping for a day off school). It is usually hovering right around the freezing mark so the snow is very wet and sticky making it perfect for snowballs and snowmen. On the off chance that the snow is still there the next morning (it quite often is already almost melted away), it will usually start to melt that afternoon.

This storm did not follow any of those patterns! The temperatures ranged from -7 degrees Celsius to -17 degrees plus wind chill on top of that! That meant light and fluffy snow. The winds continued to whip through our area for several days making the work of the few snow plows that the county has even more difficult because snow would just blow over what they had just plowed. School was cancelled for 4 days!! Unheard of! Although the college did go back on Thursday which meant that I had to go. Our office was closed Mon-Thur and this was on top of the Thursday & Friday we had off the prior week due to Thanksgiving! I went in on Wednesday for a few hours (I took Phil's truck and drove REALLY slow because the roads were nasty) but I got in trouble with Lylene for coming in. The real reason that I went into town was that I desperately needed groceries!!


One of the craziest things was the snow drifts. There was a huge one in front of the garage meaning that I didn't even have a hope of getting my car out - not that I would want to drive on the treacherous roads down here. The wind even blew drifts up onto our little front porch making our front door blocked with snow!



On Thursday the 12-24 inches of snow (depending on where you were in the county) finally started to melt leaving lots of mush and water. Which would be ok except that it went well below freezing on Thursday night creating a skating rink to drive home on.

Most of the snow melted in Bellingham on Friday but out here in Sumas we are still driving on packed snow roads and everything is still white. It's still below freezing right now (8 am) but it is supposed to warm up today.

Having a week off work was quite nice and gave me a chance to get stuff done around the house and to study which was really nice. But alas, all good things must come to an end. At least it really put me in the mood for Christmas!

We are off to the mountains to chop down our Christmas tree this morning (don't worry - we're getting a permit).

Thanksgiving

We had a fantastic time at Thanksgiving! We left Wednesday night and drove to Madras, OR where Phil's grandma lives. It was quite a treacherous drive. It was raining so hard that I could barely see between Seattle and Portland. Combined with the wind and how tired I was, it ended up being a white knuckle drive! Phil took over driving after Portland and drove across the pass where it was snowing heavily!!

Everyone from Phil's mom's side of the family was there except Phil's little brother Peter who is at school down in LA. It was really great to get to know Phil's family a bit more and just hang out with everyone. It was especially great to get to know Phil's grandma more. Now you have to understand, Grandma Marge is about as cool as grandmas come! She is fun, adventurous (she just got back from a vacation in Japan), very smart (she was a teacher and got a masters degree when not too many women were doing that), extremely devoted to her family, generous and fun! As I was helping her peel potatoes for the dinner she told me how she had met her husband Dean (he passed away when Phil was a kid) and how they got started on their farm. It was so cool to hear that bit of family history. I hope that she is still around to tell our kids those stories too, but if not, I want to make sure that I know some of them to pass along.

On black Friday, we opted out of 5am shopping and instead slept and had breakfast with the family. We did go into Bend after that though to check out the shopping. We didn't find any good deals though. We did go to a cool shopping area called the old mill district. We went and saw the new James Bond, Casino Royale - SO COOL!!!! Ususally I watch James Bond flicks because Phil wants to see them but this one I truly enjoyed! Daniel Craig somehow just makes a more human Bond. After the movie we just drove around Bend for a while. It is such a cool city and has my ideal climate - lots of sun, hot in the summer, cold and often snowy in the winter.

We drove home on Saturday and took a different route stopping in Leavenworth. Our friend Kevin works for the Icicle Inn there so we have been meaning to go for a while. It's a little Bavarian Village and it's so cute! Total tourist trap, but fun none the less. We ate dinner at King Ludwigs and had the best Schnitzel ever! Seriously, it was beter than the stuff we had in Austria! Yummy!!!!

By the time we got home on Saturday night it was already starting to snow. We are SO thankful that we came home on Saturday and not Sunday with all the crazy snow. More about that in the next post!

Go Giants!!!


Had a FANTASTIC weekend!! Got to see my girls from college - Jess, Jess & Steph. We did our patented Saturday morning brunch consisting of waffles, chocolate, fruit, whipped cream, coffee and of course, the most important part - bacon!!!! It was so wonderful to spend the morning with them, laughing, talking, and laughing some more!


What made the day even better was that I got to seem them all, with their spouses/spices that evening too! Our friend Becca is the games director for the Vancouver Giants and she hooked us up with tickets! We had a blast at the game! And of course, the Giants won 2-0. The most exciting part of the evening for Phil was getting to drive the blimp around the stadium. Boys and their toys!

On Sunday Sarah, Erin and I headed down to the Nordstom sale and shopped around the Alderwood mall. Got some very good deals too, which always makes me happy. The only down part of the day was the Cathy Jean wouldn't take my shoes back even though they didn't fit and their salesperson assured me that they would fit with insoles! Don't ever shop there - they have the worst return policy ever! And it's a shame too because they have really great shoes!

While we were busy shopping, the boys were off at Mt. Baker getting soaked! In spite of the rain, the "hard core" boys headed up to the mountain and had a great time anyways! By the end they were soaked to the bone, freezing cold and very appreciative of the thermos of hot chocolate!

Only one more day of work then we are off to Oregon for Thanksgiving!! I think that is one of the best parts about this Can/Am relationship - two turkey dinners! Wahoo!!!!

One more thing - I found a bunch of people that I know/knew in college have blogs on Xanga so I'm adding them to my blogroll. Enjoy!

No Bond


Bond sold out a half hour before the show started on 2 screens!!! We just missed getting the last two tickets. So we went and saw Stranger than Fiction instead. It was absolutely hilarious!!! Very odd cast combination: Emma Thompson, Will Ferrel, Dustin Hoffman, Queen Latifa and Maggie Gyllenhal. Defenitely recommend going to see it though!

My cell phone is a flashlight!

So Sumas is a little bit behind the times (in more ways than one). But last night, we were behind the times in terms of the viscious storm that hit our area this week. When I got home from lab last night our power was out. Most people had lost their power on Wednesday (like we did at work meaning I got to go home early). But not in Sumas!!! In Sumas, we are behind the times meaning that we didn't lose our power until Thursday!

When I got home, obviously my garage door opener didn't work. Thankfully I've had my house key on my key ring for a year and a half now, although I have not once used it. The key worked beautifully on the deadbolt, but wouldn't even go into the lock in the door handle!!! I strugled, shoved, pushed and crouched down to gleam as much light as I could from the street (not that there really was any). Finally, I gave up and tried the side door. Same story - deadbolt works great, door handle - key won't even go in. So I tried the sliding doors - locked. And of course all the windows were closed.

That left me stuck. I called Phil, but he didn't answer. However, as I was hanging up, I realized that my wonderful pink razer phone lets off a glorious amount of light (I have a great picture of the Tim McGraw concert as my background!). So using my cell phone as a flashlight, I finally manage to force my key into the lock and open the door!!!

My cell phone/flashlight escapades continued inside though. We had put the mag light in a very obvious place so that if the power did ever go out, we would be able to find it easily. But of course, I couldn't remember where that was! So there I am with my cell phone, shining it around the dark garage looking for a flashlight. This is when my dear husband rescued me by calling and reminding me where it was!


In other news, Phil went to the opening day at Mt. Baker yesterday and had a great time! Now it's off to a busy weekend which includes seeing the new bond flick tonight!

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

Hello Snow!

Mt. Baker has received over 5 feet of snow in the past 4 days! Phil got a season's pass this year and he is SO excited for Thursday - the grand opening of Mt. Baker!!!!

Look at all the pretty snow!

Too Cute!!!


This picture was taken a over a month ago at Emmalea's birthday, but it's just so cute that I had to post it!!

A surprise gift

On Thursday I got a delightful surprise at work - I got to have Friday off! Veteran's Day was saturday, so we closed the office on friday instead! I was so excited!! I have really been needing a day off.

So, I took my bonus day and relaxed, read, and also did a bunch of mundane stuff such as cleaning the house and doing laundry. But it was just so great to have a day at home! Phil only worked half a day so we had the afternoon to ourselves. We were going to drive up to Mt. Baker (Phil got new tires that he wanted to test out) and see the snow, but the road is blocked due to all the flooding that we had earlier this week. So instead we went up some other mountain roads and enjoyed the plentiful snow up there. I hope that it snows down here this year too!

Portland was fantastic last weekend! Our friend Kevin was doing a trade who for his hotel, the Icicle Inn, so we went and hung out with him for the weekend. The ski show down there was amazing!! Tons of good deals to be had! It was so much better than the Vancouver ski show that we went to a few weeks ago. We found several really good breweries while we were there. Friday night we went to BJs where they have a really good Oatmeal Stout. Not quite as good as Boundary Bay's, but it was up there. On Saturday night, after much driving around I might add, we went to Henry's Tavern. It had such a cool atmosphere and really cheap appies during evening happy hour.

On Sunday we also went to OMSI, which is like the Science World up here. They had a HUGE Star Wars exhibit that we of course had to go through. The only downer to our weekend in Portland was the weather. It dumped rain all weekend!!!! Absolutely poured!! It was fairly warm, but it just wouldn't stop raining. Which of course resulted in flooding around here, but thankfully it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

That's it for now!

I'm getting better!

I'm getting better at this whole blogging thing! It's only been a few weeks since my last post and here I am again! So first of all, here is a photo from the Carissa and Bobs wedding. What a bunch of hotties!


School has been going very well! Got my second test back and got a good grade so I'm really happy about that. I got to go to a 24 hour scrapbooking with my cousin Mel which was so fun! Don't worry - we did go home and sleep a bit. But I got a lot done and it was nice to just set up and work on my book for a while.

In other news, my sister Jackie and her husband Dave bought their first house! They moved in last week and they are so happy there. It's a very cute townhouse in Langley.

A few weeks ago my sister emailed me and told me that she had run into one of my old friends from high school Shawna. We had totally lost touch but Jackie gave me her email address. I got an email from her this week and she is a blogger too. Shawna's Boys I'm really looking forward to catching up with her.

That's about all for us right now. We are off to Portland for the weekend!

Penticton, Wedding & Fall

Last weekend I had the honor and privileged to stand as a bridesmaid for my dear friend Carissa as she married Bob. It was a gorgeous wedding, very unique, but perfectly matched to their personalities. There were tons of beautiful fall colors and we all had a blast. I finally got to meet some of her Seattle friends who I had always heard about and just enjoyed sharing that special day with her. Photos are at http://www.dueckphoto.com/ There is a few of Bob and Carissa right when you get to the page or if you click on contact, then archive, then wedding, you can select their wedding.


Of course a wedding meant a bachelorette party, so the weekend before a bunch of us girls went up to Penticton for a relaxing weekend. One of the bridesmaid's families has a condo up there so we got to stay right across from the beach. We went kayaking, walking, laid out in the sun, got massages and just had a great time!


Besides the wedding, school has been keeping me quite busy. I already wrote my first test and got an A! Yay!!!!! It is a bit weird being back in school, particularly in a 100 class (I have a huge paper to write - it's a whole 2 pages!!!!) but it feels great to be working towards something.


My only sad news to report is that last week I killed a dog. I was driving home on the Mt. Baker highway and he ran across the road! I slammed on my brakes but couldn't miss him. The poor thing died on the side of the road. A neighbor happened to see it happen and ran out to check on the dog and me. I'm so grateful that he was there because I was quite shook up and had no idea what to do! Thankfully he knew whose dog it was and told the owners for me so that I didn't have to go knocking on doors asking if I'd killed someone's dog!


Phil is still keeping busy with the golf. He goes to the driving range nearly every day and is getting quite good.


Chat to you all later!

Graduation


Well, he is finally done!!! OK, so he was done a month ago, but I'm posting about it now! On Saturday August 19th, Phil graduated from WWU with his MBA!!! I'm so unbelievably proud of him! And to make the whole experience a little more incredible, he was asked to give the commencement address at the ceremonies. He did a great job with his speech and I, of course, was bawling through half the ceremony!!

We had a great weekend of parties to celebrate graduation. A party for all the students at our place on Friday night, graduation ceremonies Saturday morning, a dinner cruise with the students on Saturday night and a party for family and friends on Sunday. Very busy weekend!

In order to host those parties, we of course needed a deck. So starting on Sunday, Phil and his Dad worked insane hours to build our huge new deck! And they managed to finish it Friday afternoon - a few hours before our guests arrived!

Life has flown by since then. We went down to Seattle for a night on Labor Day weekend, we've both been busy at work and I've started taking a class at Whatcom Community College. We celebrated my sister's birthday with a surprise party, celebrated that she and Dave bought their own place, plus celebrated my niece's first birthday. Lots of celebrating going on here!

Phil has also been busy with his new hobby - golf. And as with most things that he does, he is very focused and driven, going to the driving range pretty much every day!

Hopefully I'll post again soon! :)

I passed!!!!

I am very proud to say that tonight I passed my math placement test!!! So now for a little bit of background on this for those of you who don't know.....

Being that I'm a nerd who loves school, I've decided to take some night classes at the local community college. Because I didn't take math in university, I had to take their math placement test. So after nearly 10 years of not even glancing at a math textbook I went in and wrote the placement test a couple of months ago. I did pretty good for walking in blind considering it was an algerbra test that was a lot harder than I expected! However, with my score I was going to have to take Math 98 and Math 99 before I could take the classes that I wanted. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!! I didn't even want to take Math 99. So I got the textbook and started studying pre-calculus.

Slowly, but surely it started coming back to me. It was kind of hard to study since I only had a list of topics but didn't really know much else about the test. I went in to write it tonight and the test administrator had me a bit scared saying how hard it was. Thankfully it was a multiple choice exam and I passed! I can now go straight into the classes that I want!

In other news, Phil is working on his last few papers because he graduates in a month!!! Not too much else is new.

Chat to you all later!

Spring, Marathon and Summer is here!

Well, again it has been far too long so I apologize. If anyone is still checking this thing then I am shocked, but I do appreciate it. I really will try to update more often....we'll see how that goes!

So, here is a recap of our lives for the past several months. In March I turned 25 and had about 6 different celebrations that weekend with various family and friends. We went to a restaurant in Fairhaven (the part of Bellingham that I work in) called the Big Fat Fish Co. Very good food and I even did a post about it on my work blog.

March and April passed in a flurry as Phil and I both prepared for the Vancouver Half Marathon. We have some great running spots around our house and tried to go as often as possible. On one of Phil's runs, a dog came out of a yard and bit him for no reason! The bite was pretty nasty with several puncture marks from the dogs tooth. Phil reported it to the police and it ends up that it was the third complaint against that dog. The police said they have had a lot of problems with it. Since it was the third complaint, the owners could either pay a huge fine, have a huge bond on the dog and always keep a muzzle on it or put it down. The latter happened which although it is sad, I think that it was very necessary.

Sunday May 7 came very quickly! We met our friends at their hotel downtown at 5 :45am (Phil and I stayed at home and just drove in in the morning). It was pouring rain!!! All of us were a bit uncertain since we had never done anything like this excep for Nick who had run a full marathon before and is the one that got us all into it. So there we are at 6:30 am, huddle under the sky train tracks wearing trash bags just trying to keep a little bit dry!

The race was amazing and we had so much fun! Since there was nobody in our group at the same pace as me I ran it by myself. My longest practice run had been 7.5 miles and I didn't think that I would be able to run the whole 13.1 miles. So my plan was to run to thte 8 mile mark which was the start of the biggest hill and from there I just wanted to finish in under 3 hours. I got to the 8 mile mark and was feeling ok so I just kept going. By the time I hit the 10 I was exhausted but sheer will power and the desire to be able to say that I ran the entire thing drove me on and I finished having run the entire race! My final time was 2 hours and 36 minutes so well below my goal. Phil did very good as well finishing in 1 hour and 52 minutes!! Everyone in our group did great and we were all very proud of ourselves. We went out to lunch after and of course the sun came out!

May consisted of A LOT of studying for Phil!! It was a very hard quarter with lots of work, but he made it through with straight A s again.

We became a full house at the begining of June: my old roommate Carissa and Phil's little brother Peter both moved in for the summer. It's fun having more people around the house and I enjoy having more people to cook for. Grocery shopping has become quite the event for me as it tends to fill up my car!

On Saturday June 10, Phil and I celebrated our first anniversary. It's hard to believe that it has been a year already! We took off to the Okanagan for a couple of days and stayed with some family friends in the Osoyoos. The Ashes have a gorgeous place overlooking the lake. They just planted 5 acres of vineyards and are doing up the house to be a Bed & Breakfast. We got to stay in the B&B suite and it was quite the treat! Dark mahogony hard wood floors, an equisite king size bed, a soaker tub and our own private patio! It was amazing!!! We relaxed a lot, ate lots of good food, drank tons of phenomenal wine, visited some wineries and just had a great time being with the Ashes. Brent let us try some of his own wine straight out of the oak barrel!

Summer has finally arrived and we are starting to do a lot of work in our yard again. It's been quite hot getting over 90 degrees several times (about 33 celcius - I'm still trying to get used to their degrees down here. I think that celcius just makes way more sense!!!!). So far in the yard we have fenced off the back corner of our lot as a compost area and trimmed the trees in the back. Phil has staked off where the deck is going to go and our next project is to design it and figure out lumber.

That brings us up to the present. For all the Canadians reading this, Happy Canada Day!!! For all the Americans, Happy 4th of July!

Would love to hear from all of you. Take care and God Bless!

Oops!

OK - so I let it be far too long, again, since I have updated this thing. It's one of those things that I keep meaning to do, but never quite get to.

I can't believe that it's March already! It still feels like we just came off from the Christmas craziness, and yet it's spring already. It's been a busy few months for us too!

We celebrated Phil's 27th birthday in January. He's been extremely busy with work and school, as usual. He's writing his final paper right now, then he gets a week off before they start up again. The good news is that after this next quarter, which is supposed to be tough, he's only got one more class to take in the summer and then he's done! And then we have a big party!

I've been keeping myself busy with work, friends and church. I wish that there was some exciting tidbit to share about my life, but alas, there is not.

The other thing that has been keeping me busy is training for the Vancouver International half marathon. I realize that some of you out there have your jaw dropping open right now. There's a whole bunch of us entering it and I'm really looking forward to it. The race is in May and my goal is to finish the 13.1 miles in 3 hours. So I've been spending some quality time with the treadmill.

That's about all that is new for now. Take care and keep in touch!

A funny blog

I came across this blog - it's a self professed "Dullest Blog in the World". It truly is dull, but so dull it's funny. And, it gets thousands of hits a month. Go figure!

The Dullest Blog in the World
