11.18.13 - 11.24.13

 date night at paragon. punch bowl social. forest hills hike. 
stone house forest hills.

punch bowl social again. chandeliers.


i finally conquered my cold and am now healthy with normal sniffles from the cold weather. the begining of thw week was a little bit of a blur but thursday we went to josh and jayme to celebrate joshy's birthday and then headed downtown for a mini date. i have a running list of restaurants and paragon was on it because i heard from a couple people they have a really good mac and cheese, so we went. jason and i eat completely different, him eating a lot of meat and fried stuff while i'm prescatarian. but we share a love of mac and cheese and are always trying to find another good one. the verdict for paragon's mac and cheese was ok. i wouldn't go back just for it but it was good. 

friday we celebrated mandee's bf scott's birthday at punch bowl social. it's the entire 3rd floor of one of the pioneer square buildings. it's huge and only been open a few months. there are multiple bowling alleys and bars, 2 private karaoke rooms, arcade games, real shuffle board, and more. it was pretty fun.

saturday i got up early and headed barre. and then i went on a nice hike with maggie. we headed to forest park from downtown and hiked for about 2 hours and then grabbed some coffee and chai to warm up. that night we were supposed to go to jones to celebrate josh's birthday again but he and jayme weren't feeling well so they stayed home and we went back to punch bowl social.

sunday was lazy. my knee is acting up again so i skipped barre and ballet and opted to sleep in. we did a few errands and then i went over to my sis's for some canneles and we made a quick trip to lamps plus. i admired the shiny stuff while lic bought a couple lights for her house.

11.11.13 - 11.17.13

mi familia, thank a vet day. cooper & max keeping me 
company while i'm a home sick. new seasons bouquet.

harley the blue heeler.


i thought this past week i was going to get some much done but sadly i came down with a head cold and worked from home two days and was worthless the rest of the time. on tuesday i picked up max and him and cooper snuggled with me. actually cooper snuggled and max barked and ran at the door about every half hour. even tho i'm sick i still made it to xtend barre and ballet but i did sit out the last 20 minutes of ballet because i was dizzy.

jason's sister and her bf bought a little puppy named harley. she's a tiny blue heeler and really sweet. we got to play with her on sunday. cooper could care less, he just doesn't like when jason and my attention is off him. that's as much excitement as i can handle in my weak state. i hope i can start feeling better soon.

our clothes were all from goodwill except my sweatshirt which jason found from an online retailer.

i made the phone, thank you. just used cardboard, spray paint, and my home printer.

11.4.13 - 11.10.13

the lil vogt nugget. me holding jack. homemade pendleton-esq 
blankets. back to ballet.


this past week went by crazy fast. i came down with a migraine early on and it threw off the remainder of the week. but the good things that happened were mandee and i went to visit mck and baby jack on our lunch on friday. he was pooped from a drs app so he didn't even open his eyes the whole time we were there. 

i've already started my xmas making and buying. i have a list already made for the special people in my life and i'm checking it off. i made two pups pendleton-esq fleece blankets. and i have another little special sewing project that includes the pups in the works. 

i started a new barre class in beaverton, xtend barre. it completely kicked my butt and 3 days later i am still sore.i went back to ballet after going to my first class since spring and then two weeks off. i love the teacher, les. he is always correcting me which i really needed.

i almost forgot; my sis and i went to and saw about time on sunday. it was a really good movie. i cried, i laughed, all the emotions were there. i would recommend seeing it, just be prepared it is a 2 hour movie.

it's already tuesday but i have so much this week to do!


i bought my oversized round glasses and scarf off amazon and i wore my chanel dress from colleen's birthday bash (which apparently i never blogged because i can't find them anywhere.) and hamburglar cape.

amy & sheldon

we all found our gear either in our own closets or at second hand stores, pretty impressive. i think we're all nerds at heart.

i wore the sequin skirt i made for last nye. i took a black tank and drew on seashells with a silver fabric marker (i'm sure a sharpie would have worked too). i had some silk flowers laying around from my flower crowns and i pulled off leaves and bobbie pinned them into my hair. and i finished it off with glitter spray and pink hair extensions.


our first halloween adventure was to my coworker and friend carrie's house in newberg. we played games, ate, and chatted. jason and i won, my teams always wins. 

my hansdome husband as mc hammer!

car had a ton of food and even prizes. jason correctly guessed the weight of the pumpkin and amount of candy corn in the jar.

and we got to take the jar of candy corn home!

in earlier october we took a little trip out to sauvie's isalnd to go to the pumpkin patch.

we stocked up on pumpkins, veggies, and caramel apples.


because i am awesome. i bought jason tickets to the september daniel tosh show in seattle. 

tosh was hilarious and super offensive but still funny.


after the show we met dave and hannah at vonn trapp's. the bar is huge with indoor bocce ball courses and das boot. sadly we were too late to get das boot but we'll have to try again soon.
we left vonn trapp's and hoped on the bus back to kirkland. we stopped at a local bar and had some delicious fried pickles and then it was back to dave and hannah's to pass out.


i am finally posting pictures from our kauai trip back in august.

the flight went by quick. i was prepared with books, ear plugs, and a sleep mask.

jason and i flew out to meet up with his mom, dad, sister, and sister's boyfriend. they had been in kuaui almost a week already.

everyone knew we were coming except jason's mom. we surprised her at the hotel. jason and i both jumped in the pool and swam over to her. her back was turned and jason said "excuse ma'am do you have any sunscreen?" jodye did a double take and couldn't believe we were there.


the next day we took a boat trip around the island.

this is the sharks eye. the ceiling of the cave fell in years ago.

we saw a group of spinner dolphins on our journey. they would jump out of the water and do spins in the air. they were so darn cute.

and then did a little snorkeling.

after our boat trip we made a short trip to waimea canyon.

and then on our way back to the house we got snow cones. but these weren't your normal snow cones. these had ice cream in them too. the bottom of the cup had a couple scoops of ice cream (mine had macadamia nut) and then that was topped off with ice and flavoring.

the next day (i think) we went to a local golf course. we all partook in hitting balls on the driving range and then the guys did a round of golf (this day started jason's new hobby). ash jodye and i drove the gold carts around while the boys putted around.

for dinner we went to puka dog. and they had a veggie dog so i was happy. puka dog isn't a normal hotdog place. they take a solid hotdog bun with a hole and toast it. then they put the relishes of your choice inside and slip the dog in.


we spent a couple days just exploring the area and walking down the beach.

my sister text me with this picture. 

jason and his dad throwing the football around.


brad was burned out so they rest of us went to the north shore and the caves.

maniniholo dry cave.


we drove through this tree tunnel just about every day. it was beautiful.


i'd finally got back into my normal work out routine right be we left so i had to keep it up. i took a few runs and did my own version of barre.

i took this picture on one of my runs. it'd be really easy to get used to the view.


luau at the hilton gardens.

ahh the food! so delicious!

view of the hilton from the beach side.


then it was back home for us. :(

view leaving the islands.
