back from vacation

we were gone last week on vacation.
went to port townsend, victoria, friday harbor, hurricane ridge in the olympic national park and to the lavender farms in sequim.
we saw many eagles and orcas in the puget sound.
had a wonderful time with our friends.
and we had quite the reputation around the campground at fort worden!
not because of ME that is for sure :-)
we had spotty internet coverage, so i didn't even bother trying to blog.
i would have been completely frustrated if i had even tried.
i will try to get a couple pictures in here from the trip.
they will be hubby's though.
i took my camera, but i ended up taking zero pictures.
i really want a new camera.
nothing is wrong with mine.
i just want a new one.
but it will have to wait.
need to pay for katie's wedding dress first :-)
priorities people.....

Go Away......

I have been getting weird ass comments on here.
So from now on I will approve all comments first before posting.
So there....


OK....done venting.

I have been preoccupied with other things and have not been to the blog in days.
If you have stopped by, sorry I wasted your time.

I spend several hours a night just getting caught up on FB, but that really is no reason to not take a few minutes and come here to let you know whats what.

So here is whats what....

We started planning Katie & Tim's Wedding!
Can I get a WOO HOO?!

Last week Katie, my mom and I went to a venue to check it out.
I love it.
I'm pretty dang sure Katie does too.
I think she is going to check out another one too though, just because she had already had her eye on it before I found this one.
But I'm pretty sure we are going to book it.
It's a beautifully decorated Bed & Breakfast.
I wish the grounds were larger, but the house makes up for that.
We will get the place from 3-10pm for the wedding.
Then we get all 8 rooms for the rest of the night for a post wedding party, relaxation, deep sigh of relief.
And more food :-)
Having the wedding at this venue includes the wedding planner to take care of EVERYTHING, parking attendants, catering, catering staff, some flowers, booze (that was the clincher) a room for the night for the bride & groom, a butlers pantry full of food for the after party, full table settings with centerpieces and chair covers, a harpist or pianist for the ceremony, champagne toast for all guests, snacks and champagne for the wedding party before the ceremony....and many other things that I can't think of!
It's just fabulous!
I will be talking about this for the next year!
Because this EVENT is going to take that long to plan....and pay for!

Don't bother going to see Sex and The City 2.
Didn't care for it.
It had a few moments, but very few.
And honestly, I found it to be offensive.
The girls went to Abu Dhabi.
And now that I have seen that place, it's not somewhere I have a desire to go.
But, to get back to the movie, I thought they made the girls look like sloppy Americans.
I don't like it when Americans go to a foreign country and feel like they have the right to do and say whatever they want.
Because they are Americans and have the freedom to do such.
Well not in other countries you don't.
I believe that when you go to another country, you respect their customs, their way of life.
And to think that just because you would act that way at home, you don't go somewhere else, where they find that behavior to be offensive, and act like that.
It's not OK.
We may live in a country where we treat women as equals and with respect, but that doesn't mean that you can go to another country and basically spit in the face of their customs.
If you don't like their customs, then don't go there.
There is a big world out there, with plenty of beautiful places to travel too.
If you can't go to a country and show respect to their way of life, whether you agree with it or not, then you should not go there.
I know this was just a movie, but I think it speaks volumes as to how some, if not most, Americans act when they travel abroad.
Show some respect people.
end of rant.....

this scares the crap out of me.
i can not even image what this looks like in person.
they don't even know what all fell into the hole.
as far as i have been able to find out, they can't even see the bottom of it!
so freaky.
