"You did that on purpose"

This morning Tadd was ironing his shirt for work and I was running around getting things organized before I headed off to the gym. I went into the laundry room to ask him a few things and then of course to kiss him before we went our separate ways for the day. I kiss him a few times as he runs the iron over his shirt. He then rotates the shirt, takes a step back and purposefully directs the iron so that the water sprays me in the face and on my shirt. Then he continues to spray the shirt like it was part of his process and I just happened to be in the way. Then I said, "You totally did that on purpose." He totally started laughing, as did I. It was totally funny and so random. Like who sprays you in the face with ironing water. Anyway, it was pretty funny and totally random and I still laugh when I think of it because he just simply enjoyed himself and thought himself hilarious!!!

Seattle and Back

This past weekend, Tadd and I headed up to Seattle Washington for my college roommates wedding!!! We got in on Thursday around 4:30pm and we headed over to Andiamo for the rehearsal dinner. It was so great to see Shannon. It had been since our wedding that we had seen each other. We also got to see her family and friends, and of course meet her Mr. We were only able to talk to Eric for a few minutes, but he seemed like the perfect match for her. After the dinner, we headed over to Aaron's house in Marysville, about 40 minutes north. When we got there, it was pretty late, and we stayed up into the night, catching up with Tadd's longtime friend.

On Friday, we hung around the house and relaxed before heading to a mall to stroll around and then to lunch. We left for the wedding and arrived just in the nick of time. Shannon looked so beatiful in her wedding dress and her bridesmaids were adorable. It was a nice ceremony on a golf course and the reception area was really pretty with coppers and reds and a lovely tier of decorated donuts!!!

After an evening of dancing, eating and photos, we headed back to Marysville. On Saturday morning, we woke up and had to drive to the airport to get rid of our rental car. After that, we headed to the Seattle-Bainbridge ferry. There were lots of first on this trip for Tadd and I. We have never been to Seattle together and Tadd had never been there at all. The ferry ride to Bainbridge was a first and a visit to Port Townsend with my aunt and uncle was a first as well. Once we arrived in Bainbridge, we were greeted by my Uncle Steve and Aunt Debra (although we are not related). We made the drive to Port Townsend and straight to town parade, farmers market and craft fair. It was a very interesting town, but we had a lot of fun. We ate delicious treats, salmon sandwiches, blueberries, and lots of other goodies. After the downtown meandering, we headed to their house. It is an adorable two story house, that has blue/slate siding and wood shingles. It was such a great house, very comfy and inviting.

We took a little power nap before getting ready for our evening out in downtown Port Townsend and dinner. We went to a place called Sirens. YUM. It was so good. I got this gorgonzola chicken pasta. Whoa. It was delicious. I would fly to port townsend just to eat this again. Anyway, we got to see Debra's gallery that she works at and has her hand painted scarves and artwork in. I got a lovely pink scarf from her. It is so pretty. After dinner, we headed back to the house and prepared to eat some incredibly delicious cream filled almond croissants. Yes, we love food. And yes, we ate some seriously good food in Port Townsend. After our dessert, we headed of to sleep. Sunday morning, we arose with a beautiful site out of our window of trees and the sun peeking through. For breakfast we headed to The Blue Moose. It was such a cute, local restaurant. I got the french toast and Tadd got biscuits and gravy and we shared. Delicious. After breakfast we walked around downtown a bit more as well as a boat building place that is relatively new and really neat. There is a big warehouse where boats are made and they are so sleek looking. After a nice walk around this warehouse, we had to head to the ferry to get to Seattle. We made it to the ferry and across the puget sound and took some cool pictures of Seattle. When we got off the boat we headed to the Seattle Temple to take some pictures. Then to the airport. But before we were unloaded, we ate one last time. This time at CPK and Steve and Deb had not eaten there, and they enjoyed it very much. Then to the airport and our lovely 3.5 day weekend came to an end.

Can you believe that it is August 15th...time is seriously flying. I thought that 2010 just began and we are already into month! A few things that we finished and that are coming. I have finished my chemistry class. Actually I finished it at the end of July and I got an A...a 91%...pretty exciting! We are going to Seattle next weekend for my college roommates wedding! Then, I start the fall semester of school. I only have 1 class left in my dental assisting program which means that I will be onto my extern October 4th. Tadd is still doing really great at his job and enjoying his success. Tadd's graduation for his MBA is on his birthday in September!

Tadd and I just returned home from Laguna Niguel for Brittny's wedding. We had a really great weekend with the family. We got into the airport at separate times on Thursday. But once we both were in, we were able to head to the rehearsal dinner at a little restarant that was cute and cozy. It was called Ti Amo and all the family gathered and ate good food and got excited for Brittny and Phil's wedding.

After dinner, we were able to head to Newport and spend more time with Tara and Russ. Friday morning came and Nick, Alyssa, Tadd and I went out to breakfast and then headed to a few beaches. We stopped at Table Rock beach, then 1000 steps beach (yes there are that many steps and we actually went there to workout) I did the stairs once...Tadd did them 3 times! After that we headed to another beach with Kirk and Tyler and the kids. I definitely got some sun and enjoyed laying out chatting with Alyssa.

After those three beaches, we ate some lunch and then headed back to the hotel to get ready for the wedding which was to start at 6pm. It is always hectic getting ready for weddings for me because my hair takes a long time, but anyway, we all got ready. A few people left before and then Alyssa and I got there around 5:45pm and hung around until the ceremony started.

Then the ceremony started and Brittny looked beautiful and Phil was so happy to see her and how beautiful she looked. The ceremony was short and sweet and then we had a cocktail hour where we visited with everyone before the reception. Once the reception started, there were introductions, the toasts, the dances and all the fun formalities of a wedding. It was such a pretty site and lots of fun people to spend time with. After the wedding, we just headed back to the hotel to get some sleep. Saturday, we went to Sea World, which was fun to spend time with family. Saturday night we went over to Jeff and Karen's house which was a lot of fun. We ate good food and spent time with family. Then we played ping pong and ate lots of dessert. Jill even stopped by with her lemon bars for my birthday. It was so great! Then Sunday morning we had to take off for our flight to head back to Sacramento.
