This past summer Mario and I took a road trip up to Portland. The drive up the coast from the Bay Area to the city was just so beautiful ( I have some photos in Sights) really almost magical. I don't really know how many times you can stop and take pictures of ocean, rocks, and trees - but let me tell you we stopped a lot to take photos along the way.
I also really enjoyed Portland itself, and upon coming home started looking for (what else, Portland style blogs) That's when I came across Pretty in PDX. Jen, is sweet and funny, and always has these super cute comfy looking outfits. She recently tagged me in blog 'round- state 7 things about yourself and tag 7 others. So here goes.
1.I'm always cold. Seriously, when I am at home I am in layers from head to toe, and generally have a few blankets bout for movie watching. No, I don't have a snuggie or a slanket - I think that may be a little bit too grandma-ish for me.
2.I love tea. I'm very very picky about it too. My favorites are Gen Mai Cha and Earl Grey.
3.I'm actually a pretty decent singer. I sing in the shower, a lot. Maybe one day I'll join the ranks of cheesemeisters and make a you tube video of myself covering Patsy Cliene. But for now, if you're going to karaoke can I come too?
4.Wii Dance and now Wii Dance 2 are my favorite video games. Rockband comes at a close second. Yes, I do play video games.
5.I can read really fast. ( I learned to read when I was 3!) It helped out a lot in college - On average I can read a 350 page book in about an hour.
6.I can't stand artificial banana flavor.
7.One day I want to write a romance novel. I've never even read one, but I really want someone to design one of those awesomely fantastic cornball book covers for a story I write.
And, the MINUS ONE fact - we are actually not moving after all. There was a snafu in regards to the move in date, and we can't swing it - which is okay since we were having qualms about the neighborhood. So the search for a new place continues.
I'm passing this along to: What I Wore, Northwest is Best, 5678, Teeny and yet not Teeny at all, Swallow Light Bulbs, Beauty Simplistic, and Aerograms from Jan.
Just for fun, here are some forest photos from Oregon...
