Flying Trapeze

Apparently there are only 5 cities in the states with indoor trapeze and Seattle just so happens to be 1 of the 5! Saturday Davis and I decided to try it out and it was such a rush!! I was a nervous wreck, I am not the greatest with heights but I had a blast!

Dave no hands

Game Night

Because it's been forever and Ankur was in town we had a game night! And it was a great and extremely long night....I think I got to bed at 5am so I had almost been awake for 24 nights are sooo much harder with a FT job. I did take a 3 hour nap today ;0

Girls Night

Girls night is awesome every week but I don't always take my camera because I am sure you guys would get tired of the same pictures, but 2 weeks ago instead of having girls night in...we had girls night out. HG had $150 in gift cards to Black Bottle and we used every bit of them, it was delicious and soooo much food. Thanks so much HG for sharing the gift cards with us girls and letting us have a free girls night out :)

oysters, flatbreads, veggies, fried chicken, steak, wine...yum!

Dogs & Christmas

Davis' mom sent the dogs a package this week and since we will not be here on Christmas, they got to open it early. And boy did they love their new squeaky toys!!! This picture Beast has the new Santa and Belle is following in half her new outfit....they also got a snowman but for some reason they always want what the other has so they pretty much only play with one at a time!

Beast in his fancy outfit, I love the tie!
Belle, as Mrs. Claus

Jingle Bell 5K

Last Sunday morning we participated in the Jingle Bell 5K with some of my girlfriends and had brunch after at Alli's. Yes, this was the weekend that Seattle had a torrential downpour and was flooding and yes we ran in it! Although we were soaked it was good to get out and do it...and it was for a great cause, arthritis.

Davis was only willing to get up and run in the rain because brunch was on the other side :)

me, Dave, Molly, Margaux, Allison, and Adam soaked

HG's Holiday Party

Last weekend was Hazel Grace and Jed's holiday party and it was a blast. Davis got to meet all my girl friends and we both were able to meet new people as well. I went down to HG's early to help prepare food and decorate....this is how everything turned out.

I will post pictures of us as soon as someone else does on facebook because Davis left early with my camera!

The Holidays

This is such a busy time so this post will not include pictures but will update you a little on what's going on in our lives.

Tonight we are going to HG's holiday party.

Tomorrow morning we are running the Jingle Bell 5K with all the girls and then having brunch afterwards at Alli's. Tomorrow night is the homeowner's holiday party for the building.

I will post pictures ASAP!

This is mine and Davis' last full work week in 2010 :)

15 days

This is the amount of days that will pass before we are in TN. In 15 short days I will get to see my family and I can't wait! This will be our first Christmas back in TN and it makes me giddy thinking about it....I only wish I could stay longer :)

I hope everyone gets to be with their family, it truly makes a difference.

Turkey, Whistler, and Vancouver

I love long weekends especially when they involve traveling!

One of the perks of my job is free turkeys for Thanksgiving (odd I know), but we couldn't waste it soooo at 7pm Wednesday night I started cooking my 13 lb turkey.

I am pretty sure we got all the meat off
Since we were going to be on a bus for 6 hours the next day and it was Thanksgiving, we took some turkey with us and had turkey for lunch on Turkey Day! Thanks Vaupell

After leaving Whistler, we made a pit stop in Vancouver for the night. It was our friend, Mary's, birthday and it was a great ending to a perfect weekend!
playing video games with the Birthday girl
such a happy birthday girl
Davis driving the skytrain in Vancouver....Canadians would put a seat in that location knowing no one will be driving!

A short version of what I am thankful for: my loving husband who always makes me laugh, my wonderful family (I miss you all more than you know), my job (I finally got one and I love it), my dogs because they are super cute and keep me company while the husband travels, my house, and last but certainly not least all of my friends. I could go on but this is the short list!
