Whistler, BC

• I skied for about an hour and a half.  Turns out, while I liked skiing ten years ago (when I last tried), I no longer enjoy it.  Yes, I can ski, and I got down the mountain without dying – but it’s not fun.  I don’t like going fast.  I don’t like being cold.  […]

Whistler, BC

Have I still not talked about our trip to Whistler?  For shame.  I’m not going to recap every single little thing, but instead, share some pics and note the things I’d like to remember about the trip… (The view from our condo.) • We stayed in a nice condo in the heart of Whistler Village, […]

Dining Out

What a night!  The event started with a cocktail hour in the ballroom.  The ladies took advantage of the time to grab several group shots. Hot tamales! Navy wives on the prowl It’s unclear if we’re showing off our shoes, or our legs…   As the cocktail hour drew to a close, NavyGuy pulled me […]

Tally’s Weekend

Tally pup spent the weekend with another couple from our squadron.  They have a black lab mix and a two year old son, so why they agreed to add another dog to the mix is beyond me.  The wife is the biggest sweetheart ever and every time she’s watched Tally, she’s texted us some photos […]

Oscar Best Picture Nominees

The Artist… the 92% of Americans who claim to like this movie […]

We’re Big Ole Cheaters

And I don’t care even one little bit. Season 2 of Downton Abbey is still airing here in the states, but the show originally aired in Britain last fall… hence the dvds became available last Tuesday. NavyGuy and I decided we are EXACTLY the instant-gratification-stereotype of our generation and had them here from Amazon Prime […]

Vegan Portland

I’ve pointed this out before, but it bears repeating:  when I have more exciting things in my life (which would make for interesting blog posts), I’m too busy living my life to then write said blog posts! • Sister was in Portland last week for work.  I visited from Thursday to Saturday and we painted […]
