A busy month of June. Highlights include:

  • a trip to Bend with my family for a super fun wedding
  • a silly bachelorette dinner and night out with college friends in Seattle
  • my sister’s 18th birthday with a delicious homemade birthday cake
  • 'real life' pinterest and Mike calls it and adventure with AirBnB
  • beautiful summer weather and front porch hang outs with friends and family
  • chalk art with my family
  • two more weddings that acted like mini HS reunions for Mike & I

March 2013 highlights include:

  1. A little Annabella and Lu playdate
  2. Bridesmaid shopping at Urban Outfitters
  3. Suit shopping with Mike- we found a winner!
  4. A super fun night out with friends for HAPPY MICHAEL st PATRICK MCGRATH DAY
  5. Beautifully dyed Easter eggs at my ma’s house
  6. Easter weekend spent at Trout Lake

We had a fun and sunny Fourth of July. A day off in the middle of the week is pretty nice too. Here are some photos from the annual parade in my parent’s neighborhood- always fun to see the kids with decorated bikes and of course photo ops on the firetruck. And in my family the dogs get into the spirit too- with festive attire.

Now on to a two day work week and then a 3 day wedding weekend, summer in the PNW is finally here!

Every now and again I like to plug my other tumblr: sangriadiaries. Check out my latest post from this weekend & peek around some additional sangria stories, recipes and more!

Yesterday afternoon Mike and I biked in the sunshine over to Por Que No on Mississippi- just in time for their happy hour.  $4 sangria tacos and guacamole were had. The one thing I love about the sangria at PQN… lots of fruit. Just yesterday they began rotating in their sangria blanca for summer- updated recipe with apricot nectar, will have to try.

My new camera arrived so I took it out for a meet up with Marie.
