No matter who your preference is, please go out and cast your ballot. We all have a say in this election, and it’s important that we show those in Washington how much we care. There are LONG lines out there, so leave plenty of time for that, and bring a book to read!


Happy Halloween!

Halloween at work is a very fun day, and tomorrow will be no exception. Every area group picks a theme, decorates their area and dresses up. This year we chose “Guitar Hero,” and we’re coming dressed as musicians and concert staff (i.e. bouncer, glow-stick vendor). We decorated one of the conference rooms like a stage, and I’m bringing my parents’ Wii so we can actually play Guitar Hero in there. Good fun! I’ll be dressed as Miley Cyrus, but I have a feeling my costume doesn’t look much like anything she’d wear.



A few days ago I met up with some friends to carve pumpkins and drink apple cider. Too bad no trick-or-treaters will get to see this beauty!

I’ll start posting better things this weekend.

Autumn is sinking in

Driving around town yesterday looking for condos, it really started sinking in that autumn has truly arrived. Although it has been a some time since the days started getting shorter, the trees are finally joining the transition. I love this time of year and am happy to have these cool, crisp days back (though here in Seattle, they’re quite soggy, as well).

This morning, in keeping with the fall spirit, I made apple-topped pancakes, as inspired by not martha. They were good, but I feel they would have been amazing if I hadn’t used my sister’s pancake recipe (they were quite dense). I’ll try them again soon, though!

A few pictures from our day trip to San Juan Island.

Yes, those are whales out there, I swear!

I also saw a fox for the first time, but it was too dark to take a picture.
