Five On Friday!

Friday, August 16, 2013


Like I said in my Monday morning post, I couldn’t wait for Friday & I am so excited it’s finally here!!

One. I am thrilled to be able to spend some time with my husband this weekend! Starting at noon today we get all weekend together & I couldn’t be more excited! In the past two weeks he has worked over 200 hours so we both are in need of some relaxation time together!


Two. We both have the weekend off because we are headed to the Willamette Country Music Festival! This is a three-day music extravaganza (okay maybe that’s not how they explain it, but I like that word). It’s three full days of tons of great country music. I am really excited to see Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes, Darius Rucker, and Brad Paisley to name a few! I’m also excited to just spend some time with Dan listening to some of our favorite artists away from the craziness of home for a couple days.

Three. In just one week, Dan and I will be running from Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood to Seaside Oregon on the Oregon Coast with our 10 other team members for Hood To Coast. It’s a 199-mile relay race and we start in just one week at 10:30am next Friday morning. I am excited and really nervous, but also really happy that our team reached our goal of raised $18,000 for the American Cancer Society. With everything my Aunt is going through right now and everything my family has been through in the past few years in regards to cancer, I am thrilled to be able to donate that much money to a great organization. (Be on the lookout for some pictures and blogs about our experience)

Four. I wanted to check in and see how I was doing on my summer checklist since it is getting a little too close to fall for my comfort.
Go Camping
Go to a farmers market
Work in our community garden
Go on a hike
Can/Preserve lots of fresh food
Host a BBQ
Fix up the beach house
Run Hood To Coast
Spend the day floating a river or Hagg Lake with friends
Go to Old Fashioned Festival
Go to a Tunes on Tuesday
 Have a Picnic
 Start blogging about local wineries
 .     Spend time taking pictures
Ride the Portland Brew Cycle

So I seem to have a little ways to go. I will check running hood to coast off next weekend and hopefully will be able to do some of the others before fall officially hits!

Five. I’m in search for the perfect comfortable Maxi dress that I can wear for the remainder of the summer. I’ve seen so many adorable ones but can never seem to find the right one at the right time in the right size! Ugh! I really wanted one to wear for the music festival this weekend, so I might make the hubby stop on our way!


I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!! Be on the lookout on Monday for how the music festival was!
