december 26, 2011

A nice quiet evening at the house, fixing stuff.

december 27, 2011

Working two doors down from the Thai place means delicious food on the shops dime.

december 28, 2011

After work today Daryl and I went over to my parents house to organize stuff on work on our sled. I’m so excited to use it this weekend!

december 29, 2011

Sasha is a muddy dog!

december 30, 2011

We found Pliny! So, so, so, so, so delicious.

december 31, 2011

Happy New Years Eve! Daryl, Nick, Ozzy, and I skinned up near tree line at Mt. St. Helens today and got drunk at camp tonight. A great way to ring in 2012!

[And so concludes another year of Photo365.  Tomorrow starts year four!]

Man, I miss working with Selena every day! It’s been great hanging out with her the past couple days!

december 20, 2011

I love Fort George with my sweet honey!

december 21, 2011

Foggy day over the river!

december 22, 2011

We basically have a never ending rotation of guests in the house and one of them must’ve eaten something…

december 23, 2011

Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

december 24, 2011

This years Christmas Eve slippers!

Awesome, amazing, perfect Christmas Day skiing with my Explorer!

december 12, 2011

I love Sasha-girl.

december 13, 2011

The owners of this house discovered this old sign while they were renovating. I love the history in Astoria.

december 14, 2011

I love when we have fires.

december 15, 2011

Daryl and I made this awesome red curry, lemon, zucchini, squash, chicken dish for dinner the other night. Left overs are awesome!

december 16, 2011

NIne days until Christmas! Breaking out the holiday earrings!

december 17, 2011

I drove up for the 127th St Christmas party tonight. Saw my Dana-love and it was wonderful!

Selena has a Hanukkah Bush!

december 5, 2011

The Explorer misplaced his hat months ago. We looked and looked and had decided he must’ve left it on Mt. St. Helens last March (the last pictorial evidence of it). He finally found one online last week and ordered a new one. Literally days after it came in the mail, he found his old hat stuffed in a pocket of a jacket.

december 6, 2011

I love cleaning out my room at my parents house and finding gems like this. As a general rule, if it was taken in Alaska, I’m adorable and it becomes my new favorite photo.

december 7, 2011

I found my collection of Jones Soda Bottles in my old room today. 53 bottles, mostly all Fufu Berry, every single one a different photo. And thanks to the 5¬Ę Oregon deposit, I’ll get a whopping $2.65 for them all!

december 8, 2011

If I weren’t fervently wishing for rain so it would snow on the mountain, this would be the most beautiful day in weeks. However, it is December in Astoria and it should be raining so that the mountains can have more than a [melting] 39″ of snow!

december 9, 2011

We came home today to discover a 250lb bale of Hops in our living room. The house smells delicious!

december 10, 2011

We’re all classy in this house and drink [nearly an entire bottle of] wine out of mason jars.
Note: Willamette Valley Vineyard Whole Cluster Pinot Noir is delicious.

december 11, 2011

To continue our nice streak of making awesome meals, we made a delicious potato, onion, garlic, Polish sausage, and aged white Cheddar scramble this morning. Om nom nom.

november 28, 2011

Major blanket of fog over town today. This was taken at noon!

november 29, 2011

How to make the newest Subaru look even dumber: lift it an inch or so.

november 30, 2011

This is some of my favorite light in Astoria. Nearly cloudless skies as the sun starts to set.

december 1, 2011

The bartender at Baked Alaska made me a delicious mystery drink tonight. Yum!

december 2, 2011

How to deal with a VERY full Mason jar growler!

december 3, 2011

My sweet Explorer, Nick, Ozzy, and I skinned up Mt. St. Helens today! A great first day out on our skis and a much needed recon mission for our New Years’ Eve trip.

december 4, 2011

Jc leaves for the Navy this week so she had a great going away bowling party tonight! So much fun with great friends!!

threehundredtwentyfive – threehundredthirtyone

november 21, 2011

I’ve lived here for two weeks now and this is the first time we’ve all been on the same floor, let alone the same room, of the house!

november 22, 2011

Sasha-girl is so silly!

november 23, 2011

The house has smelled so amazing all day from Spencer and Polish’s preparation for the house Thanksgiving dinner.

november 24, 3011

This year I some how took over the making of the pie for Thanksgiving dinner. So good! I make a good pie!

november 25, 2011

I like my new ritual of drinking beer and reading ski magazines at night.

november 26, 2011

The Explorer and I finally made it into the Columbian Cafe this morning for brunch. I had the most amazing and delicious spinach and cheese crepe. Accompanied by the cutest man on the planet and a mimosa, it was perfect!

november 27, 2011

Finally finished my second pair of birthday socks. After, I organized my knitting stuff and got everything set to start my second prototype ski hat, only to discover I need a new set of circulars and the shops had closed by then.

threehundredeighteen – threehundredtwentyfour

november 14, 2011

After making a trip to the coin shop in Longview, I stopped by Target and bought a new train case (my old one was nearly 10 years old and falling apart) and notebooks for knitting things.

november 15, 2011

Any time D and I come home, Sasha is immediately at our feet, begging for pets. Such a wonderful girl!

november 16, 2011

I’m working for my Dad, doing inventory and data entry at the shop, while I’m back in town. Thank goodness for good tunes and coffee!

november 17, 2011

Spencer bought Sasha a keg-collar! It’s even engraved!

november 18, 2011

Silly Ozzy, tearing up his favorite toy!

november 19, 2011

After nearly three years of dating my Cave Man, I finally went caving! Daryl, Nick, and I went to Ape Cave up at Mt. St. Helens today. It was so cool!
