Friends I miss you! I wanted to give you a little update about where on earth I've been and why I haven't had any house updates or projects!
Well first, as you know, there was the fabulous river trip. After which I promptly caught a crazy horrible summer cold. Don't you think summer colds are the worst? It's not like you want to stay cooped up inside watching movies on a beautiful summer day! :) It caught me very off guard and I couldn't barely add up 1 + 1, let alone string together words for a post. I'm actually still fighting it. Boo!
This weekend we escaped Portland to celebrate our birthdays! I think I've mentioned this, but our birthdays are two weeks apart and instead of buying gifts, we plan a weekend away. So. Fun. This year we went to the wonderful Bend, OR, which is where we spent our anniversary last year. We had an absolutely AMAZING weekend. Seriously. Not even my trail of used kleenex put a damper on the awesomeness.
We stayed in this ridiculously amazing bed and breakfast. Which I wanted to get WAY more photos of for all of you, but forgot my camera card at home (see sick excuse, above ;).
My favorite part? The front porch. OMG. I need a front porch in my life. We spent time both mornings in a rocking chair with a cup of coffee and a book. Bliss.
On our way back Sunday, Chris started getting pretty bad back pain. Thinking it was a combo of a massage Saturday + driving a lot of Sunday, we ignored it. Until it couldn't be ignored yesterday morning and he landed in the E.R. with crippling back pain and kidney stones. He's much better now, but it sure wasn't a fun day!
All in all, I've been a little out of sorts. But, we're back working on the kitchen this weekend and I have a few projects ideas that I'm excited to tackle. I'll be back to my normal posting routine soon :). What's been happening in your lives lately??
