I can't tell you how much I have missed you all.
While our long Memorial weekend was full of amazing adventures
I missed the humm of my computer monitor, the constant stream of eye candy
and ALL of YOU!
Now hop on my giant steed
(if you can)
and I will share with you my adventures.
We found the Clydesdale in Wishram Washington.
Jim's mother spoils us rotten when we come to town.
Baking cookies, pies, and anything and everything
we can dream up - for breakfast, lunch and dinner
But there is nothing better than a 2 pound hamburger
from Effie's in Lewiston, Idaho
My favorite thing to do when I visit is SHOP!
Antique and thrift stores only of coarse
I found so many amazing finds this trip
I can't wait to share them!
A young lad at an auto supply store told us about
Lily Bee's Consignment Shop
in Pullman Washington
The store is full of the most unique and well cared for items both old and new
Including the most amazing collection of vintage prom dress and wedding gowns.
The young lady above was trying on dresses for her very own prom I believe.
She was such a beautiful model!!!
Remember this filter?
I couldn't help but try it out on this photo
What I love most about visiting my mother-in -law in Idaho
is the country and the beautiful landscape of the Palouse
When I was a young girl I dreamed of living in the city
now I dream of living in the country
I often wonder if I know myself more now
or if I am simply incapable of being happy and content with what I have
and where I am in my life?
I love my beautiful little house but Portland has never felt like home
Perhaps there is no one who loves the country more than my two pups
I have been trying very hard to change my lazy ways
and get outside to move my legs and breath in the fresh spring air
I've had my pink hello kitty cruiser bike for longer than I would like to admit
It was about time we went on a good long ride
okay so it was only 6 miles but with no speeds I was feeling the burn
There is a nice little bike path connecting Moscow to Pullman.
The dividing line from the Idaho Vandals and Washington State Cougars
My Freshman dorm mate and her husband had us over for dinner Saturday evening
and we all rode together that Sunday.
Her bike was much easier to ride I have to admit.
But poor Jimmy had the worse ride of all
his bike from 5th grade with no handle grips and the hardest seat one could possible imagine.
LOL I think he kinda wished he had gotten a bike
when my parents offered him one for his birthday this year
But he will never ever ever admit that!
I snapped this shot while on our ride
The rusty skeleton of a automobile from yester-years.
Maybe a model T?
All adventures must come to an end and so with our new Airstream hitched behind
we made our was back to Oregon
I promise to get picture of the air stream as soon as its painted all shiny red!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
My heart goes out to all of you who have lost loved ones!
P.S. This was my submission to a Martha Stewart contest
I did it up quickly... and I don't have any graphic design background
and so Sadly I didn't get picked for the top 5 :(
but you can vote for your number one if you want to support other talented artist.
