Oregon Vacation

We got back last night at the wonderful hour of 1:00 a.m from a week in Oregon. My dad's side of the family is all in Oregon so we went there to show off the wonderful state to the new family member(my husband and brother in law) and celebrate my grandfather's 80th birthday!
The weather was a PERFECT! It was 60 and sunny almost every day. What a break from the heat in Arkansas. The town we went to has lakes, rivers, sand dunes and the ocean all right there so we were able to enjoy alot that Oregon had to offer.
Now I we are back, doing laundry, in the heat and have been forced back to the real world.

At Devil's Elbow Beach....

Throwback to the Greek Days

My group of friends at work have started a new tradition where we have themed parties. It's an excuse to do something fun outside of work, eat and relax! The first one was hosted at our house at it
was a "Redneck" Poker Party. Everyone looked so funny! I guess since I was hosting I didn't take very many good pictures. The last party we had a week ago was "Golf Pros and Tennis Hoes". Yes, you would think we were back in our sorority and fraternity days with these themes huh? Now the only question is what we are dressing up as next month!

A Great Night for a Great Cause

Last night we went to a wonderful event called "Dinner on the Grounds". It was on the grounds of the Governor's Mansion and was a wonderful southern dinner with Jazz music. It was for a wonderful organization called Our House. It is a homeless shelter in Little Rock that does alot of great things. I wish I had taken more pictures of the governor's mansion and its grounds to share!
