life lately

We've been very very busy around our house lately.  Lots of exciting things happening in our neck of the woods, which I will fill you in more about at a later time.

For now,  here's our life in photos...

Kitty and I went to bed super early on Saturday night.  It's still daylight out in this photo.

 I've been SUPER into Kombucha lately. It's so delicious. Especially this kind: the Superberry flavor from Brew Dr.

Fajitas for dinner Saturday night!

Friday morning, I took the train down to Portland to help my sister move. The view on the train ride from Tacoma to Portland is some of the most beautiful scenery in the state.

 Tracks at the station.  ...I was trying to be artsy...

Back on the crocheting bandwagon!

I bought my parents these amazing hats as a special gift.  They love them; can you tell?

The view from my parents' house.  This week we'll get to watch the fireworks over the water from there.

Father's Day ladder ball at Brad's parents' house.  This is his Grandma.  She was amazingly talented at this game!

My new Minnetonka moccasins!  The leather is sooo comfy. And I love the beading.

This is our front yard. The color of these roses is amazing.  This is not an edited photo, and those things are like neon!


  1. oohhh! pretty roses and i love your mocs!!

  2. Nice summary. Now let's get to the good stuff! Is your sister all moved up?

  3. ohmyGOSH. Have you seen this video:


    "Gettin' Real in the Whole Foods Parking Lot"
    Listen for the moment at 1:51
    "I've been edge ever since they took Kumbucha off the shelf"

    Loved your post, beautiful pictures!

    1. HA! Oh my goodness! That is amazing! I can't believe I've never seen it before. hahaha

      Thanks for sharing!

  4. I always loved the drive down south to Portland, but I've never taken the train. The view must be so amazing!

  5. those cute hats and ladder ball caught my eyes. how do you play ladder ball? i've never played one.


    1. Ladder ball is the ultimate back yard game (according to this website: http://www.ladderball.org/). It's really fun! You have two balls attached to a string, and you try to throw them onto the rungs of a ladder. It sounds lame when I write it out, but it's not. :) Check out that link! It's got all of the rules, and, I think, even directions to build your own ladder ball!


Thanks for following along with me! I love your encouragement and feedback!
