That's right - only 11 days until this cute boy is moving to Portland!!

We've survived the past Six months of long distance, and now we finally get to live in the same place!! No more nightly phone calls lasting until the wee hours of the morning. No more Skype dates. No more only seeing eachother every 3 or 4 weeks. No more sad good-byes at the airport. No more worrying about the time-zone differences. And no more not being able to get a hug when you really need one!

Just US, the wonderful city of Portland, and a summer that's bound to be full of adventures!

happy April!!

OK – so I realize that I’m the worse blogger ever! And it’s not that I don’t have anything to blog about – it’s more like I have too many things to write about, so I just don’t write about any of them!

I should post pictures from my trip to San Francisco with my mom – which was a blast! Or from the short trip up to Seattle with Matt over his Spring Break. But there are just too many pictures to choose from! Next week, I’m heading to Utah for my friends wedding! And then no more trips planned until I head to Washington DC for the Fourth of July! I absolutely LOVE fireworks, so I can’t wait to be in DC on the Fourth! How much more patriotic can you get?!

Matt is now a certified Phlebotomist Technician. Congrats to him!! This means that he can draw blood from anyone- and he's certified to do it in all 50 States! He had to take a month long class, and take a written test as well as get a certain amount of ‘pokes’ by taking blood from other people. I’m scared to death of needles, so he has yet to poke me! But if any of you need your blood drawn, I know someone who would love to do it for you!!

And here is the most random assortment of a few pictures from my last couple weeks:


Mom and I rented bikes and rode across the Golden Gate Bridge - in the wind and rain! But it was still awesome and totally worth it!

The Tour of Alcatraz. Very, very interesting!

Best store ever!! I always spend way too much money there!

Space Needle!!

Happy April Everyone!!
