I know, I's been a  R E A L L Y  long time since I've posted. I didn't purposely take such a long break, I think it was just a combination of summer coming and my work schedule. It's so hard for me to turn the computer on in the summer when is sunny outside. And although I've had my 8-5 job for quite some time now (just over a year now!), it's still a little different from coming home from pulling a shift at Starbucks, having the whole day ahead of me and blogging at my leisure. Now, I come home, make some dinner and all I want to do is relax before it's time for bed. Not to mention, I haven't really had much to blog about. It's hard because Joe has school/clinicals during the week, which means he's forced to work the weekends, pulling anywhere from 24-36 hour shifts at the fire department. So needless to say, we didn't do much this summer. We did go to Mt. Rainier for a few days, and I made a trip home in August, but for the most part I spent my Saturdays driving all around Spokane going to yard sales & estate sales with Ashley.

Ashley moved here from Florida to be with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend, Mike, happens to be a good friend of mine from high school. Mike moved to Spokane not too long ago, after getting stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base. In May, he ended up getting deployed to Honduras for 5mos...leaving Ashley all alone. Since I was alone on the weekends, it worked out perfect. In short time, Ashley and I became good friends and found we have more in common than moving 2000+ miles away to be with our boyfriends... we have a common passion for finding vintage treasures!
Mike has since returned from deployment and trying to find a day for all four of us to hang out has been tough with all of our schedules, particularly Joe's. But you know Joe isn't going to miss Gonzaga's basketball debut! On Saturday, we all went to Kraziness in the Kennel. We had so much fun hanging out with them... wish we could do it more often!
