A month of slow blogging...

I'm playing catch-up. Sometimes I think that blogging is kind of dumb, other times I kind of like it, and so I go from posting lots to hardly at all, and it is a vicious cycle. So because I'm feeling okay about it today and I don't know how I will feel about it tomorow, I'm posting a bunch of the pictures I had in my camera for the past month.

Birthday!!
First up is way back in July and my traditional Birthday Breakfast in Bed (traditional meaning it has only been done twice, once on my birthday and once on James's, but it is a tradition I would like to keep.) James did this all by himself and it was pretty dang good!

I love presents!


Soccer!!
I happen to be married to a soccer freak/fanatic. A few weeks ago James and I and one of our best guy friends Nick went to the big Real Soccer Game. It was the one where the best of the USA played against a really good team in England. I enjoy Soccer just as much as the next person but THESE BOYS LOVE SOCCER and their reactions were awesome!
All the flags in the Soccer world (I think...)


GO USA!


Me and James

Me, James, and Nick
The boys

The stadium looked awesome all lit up at night!



The game went to overtime and it got pretty intense in the stands...

The Kick-Off in Overtime...

The stunned and heartbroken looks in the crowd when USA just couldn't pull through.

What a fun night! We both think Nick just might be one of the coolest guys ever!

Oregon Coast!
James's Family has a tradition of going to the Oregon Coast every other year or so. They rent a beach house and stay for almost a week. Because of nasty work schedules, James and I weren't able to stay that long, but we did stay a long weekend and it was freaking fun! All of James's family was there, except one brother and family. It was beautiful and I fell in love with Oregon! Not to mention, they have blackberry bushes that grow like weeks over there. We picked fresh blackberries every morning! I need to live in a place like that...
This was in the morning before the mist and fog dissapeared.

I love this boy!

This is us at Cannon Beach looking at all the sea creatures all over the rocks and sand.

Now, I grew up on a dairy farm and had to touch all kinds of weird crap (literally.) But I never developed a love of touching weird things, I actually hate it. But James would not let us leave this beach until I touched this stupid star fish.

This is how it all went down:
James: Hey come over here, look at this star fish!
Cindy: Wow, that's awesome!
James: Come here, touch it, it's awesome!
Cindy: No thanks!
James: Why? It won't hurt you.
Cindy: I don't want to.
James: Just touch it! It won't sting or anything.
Cindy: No, I don't want to!
James: Just TOUCH it!
Cindy: No! (start to run away)
James: Grabs my hand pulls me toward the fish, "Just touch it!"
Cindy: EW, NO, I DON'T WANT TO!
James: Quit being a baby, just touch it, it won't hurt!
Cindy: NOOOOOO!
James: (teeth clenched and growling) Just touch the damn fish!
Cindy: (glaring) FINE! Sick! That's disgusting!

Just hanging out on Cannon Beach! A bit too chilly...

I wish I had some pictures of us all done up in our sexy wet suits boogie boarding in the ocean, but we never had our camera or people to take pictures of us, but let me just tell you that we are awesome boarders. Nothing like catchin a big wave, dude!

A pretty little waterfall we drove a very long way to see. Signs can be very misleading people...


Until next time...
