FLOATING & BBQ'S


The weekend brought more fabulous weather, and the mister and I were determined to get ourselves into the lake before summer came to an end. We found ourselves a little secluded beach landing, some floaties and made a little party out of it. My favorite part was staring at all the speedboats with Mount Rainier in the background. After an hour, we quickly packed up and headed across the lake to our friends going away BBQ. She's moving her and her gorgeous family to the beautiful island of Kauai. Yes, jealous is an understatement, and we will miss her dearly. Good luck Jill!
I also got the chance to see one of my best gals, Gavi, while she was in town visiting from Los Angeles. We chatted, gossiped, and listened to some of her new music that she's been working on wee into the morning hours. Time well spent. Make sure to like her new facebook page here!

What fun things did you do this weekend?

  1. Ok, you guys are one good looking couple. Lake floating is my fav. Your weekend looks and sounded lovely. We like watching sped boats too. My weekend consisted of cooking, cleaning, and my FIRST family Facebook party =) Super fun.
