Bye Bye Boyfriend

As all of my friends and family know, my life has been crazy-whacko-nutso.

Not only am I STILL homeless (and by homeless, I mean I'm paying a mortgage on a home I purchased but can't live in), but my boyfriend took a job up in OREGON.

And I swear - if I hear "When does he come back?" one more time I'm going ape shit.

He's NOT coming back.  He. Took. A. Job. In. Oregon.  What part of that screams "I'M COMING BACK!"  ????

So with that being said, at the beginning of July we got to move all of his stuff up to Oregon.  We packed up a UHaul, sent his dog to his moms, and began our epic 1-way road trip to Portland!  Thank goodness I wasn't moving up there - otherwise we may have needed 3 UHauls for all the CRAP I have apparently accumulated throughout my life.

His mom and Dommy Salami (aka:  One of the brothers) came up the night before to say their goodbyes.  I was the photographer.

Unfortunately, Aaron is unable to have his beloved mess-of-an-animal dog in Portland until next spring-ish, so he had to pack up his puppy and send him off with his mom.

We then started our road trip the next morning!  We stopped at Crater Lake one day.  Crater Lake is just as beautiful as all of the pictures.  It's a beautiful location - but a ZOO on the 4th of July weekend.  I was also extremely surprised to see that there was SNOW in JULY!  What a crazy year it has been.

Then the next day we stopped at Smith Rock.  And rock climbed.  Because it wouldn't be a trip with my boyfriend without rock climbing.

It was a great little trip!  I miss my boyfriend dearly and don't get to talk to him that often, but I am used to him being gone on climbing trips so it's a little easier than I thought it would be.

Favorite Commercial

I love this video!  I watched it for the first time in a class and ever since I just can't get enough of it!

Secret Obsession

I have a secret obsession with looking at (our local newspaper) Engagement and Wedding pictures.

Not because I'm secretly planning my wedding portfolio.

I just secretly love looking at the pictures!  Occasionally I will see people I went to high school with - it excites me!

The secret is out - it's my mini-obsession.

Eastern Sierra Hot Springs?

One thing I have always always always wanted to do is visit one of the MANY hot springs in the Eastern Sierra.  I always hear about them, I always read about them in books, I JUST WANT TO GO!

So one day Aaron and I decided to seek out some of these hot springs.  We visited 1 just to find out we were lost and had no idea where to find it.

1 down.

We visited a second one just to find out it is only filled in the morning so by the evening time the water is cold.

2 down.

We visited the third one just to find out it was PERFECTLY WARM and big enough for several people.  This is great because I love making friends!


All of these "friends" were naked.  

I didn't make any friends needless to say.  Or take any pictures (is that appropriate to take pictures of yourself with naked people in the background?).  I guess I'm a little modest - but it was awkward looking up and HELLO FULL MOON!!  PUT THAT THING AWAY!!

My boyfriend loves mountains...

Porter Potties

So many of you may know that my best little friend is a Bolivian bombshell (ok - I think she's a bombshell). 

Anyhow - because she's from Bolivia, occasionally she mixes up words or doesn't always get words right.  So the other day my little Lou (only I can call her Lou) posts on her facebook:

Emphasis on "Porter Potties."  Now when I see Lina make these little errors I laugh and tell her the correct way to spell or pronounce the word.  In this case, I told her via Facebook Chat why some people were making comments about the "Porter Potties" and here is her response:

Ok - so she actually looked it up online!  Well then shame on Google for not telling her.
Except when I googled "porter potties" something completely different popped up.  

Oh Lou
Enough said
