Shy of 1000 equates giveaway!

What better way to celebrate my little blog reaching 1000 followers than with a giveaway?!  I have 999 as we speak, but I am crossing my fingers that someone pushes me into the thousand mark real soon!

I was contacted by Kirkland's to host a giveaway for one of my lovely readers, and this colorful shower caddy can be yours!

Love the fun girlie colors and waterproof material

If only I had this caddy while I was in college - talk about practical purchases to go back and forth to the community bathrooms.  Don't miss those days lol, BUT keeping your shower stuff off the floor is a huge plus in my eyes and gotta love it being portable.

To be eligible for the giveaway,
leave a comment sharing your favorite brand of items that you would fill this caddy with.  I'm always on a hunt for must-haves!

Good luck everyone!!!
You have until Sunday August 1st at 10pm PST to enter.

Suncadia Round 2

AND another week bites the dust!!!!
July happened to be my vacation from the blogging world
with my six lousy posts.
I promise I haven't forgotten ya'll   :)

I am working a OBGYN conference in Suncadia (60 miles east of Seattle) this week and in absolute heaven.  Gabe and I visited this resort last year for our three year anniversary, and click here if you want to peak back.  Luckily, Gabe was able to come spend the last two days with me keeping me company, eating yummy food (I ordered blackened salmon two nights in a row and plan to tomorrow as well - I am on a salmon kick), soaking up the 90 degree rays, and reading for hours on end in the silence of the mountains.

One of Gabe's favorite bands is Sigur Ros, and the lead singer, Jonsi, just came out with a new album Go.  We hadn't listened to it prior to coming out here, but we played that sucker from start to finish for hours at a time.  Every song seemed to be perfect from the patio deck.

*I sent a few photos to my family back home of the gorgeous Eastern Washington scenery, and my dad's response was, "Beautiful looks just like Texas!'  HAH -- not quite!

Can't wait to update my blog on the last month.
Lots of pics to come ... but off to finish the Bachelor!

Can we say overwhelmed?!

Well, I wasn't planning on taking a blog hiatus, 
but it has come down to that!  

July has turned into completely chaos, and I am hoping it slows down before the month is over.  With that being said, I just booked our tickets to the Land Down Under, aka Australia!!!!!!  We leave in a month and a half, and I am thrilled that it has come together.  Off to enjoy the Seattle sun :)  

Be back soon .... I hope when life calms down a bit!

Mischievous Toddler

(Sorry for the poor quality, I snapped it with my Blackberry)

This is hands down my favorite video catching
my nephew red-handed trying to drink TWO Sonic drinks.
Watch his lips inch closer and closer .... hilarious.

I miss that mischievous toddler!!!!!!

Happy 4th Anniversary

This was hubby's face as I walked down the isle .....
it will always be treasured as one of my favorite photos of him!

I thank the Lord every single day for bringing Gabe into my life.  

I called it on the first day we met that he would be my future husband!!!! I told Abby and my mom -- she said don't jinx it!!!  It is scary how quickly the past 4 years have flown by, which means it's only the beginning of our life together and 20 years will pass before we know it .... I can just imagine saying, "How do I have kids in college??"

How did I luck out marrying the most handsome and loving man in the world that is an incredible role model for myself and others.  

Here's to the many more on our adventure together - 
Thanks for being my rock!
