4th of July in Oregon

Early July, Colin and I went to Hood River to visit his family. His dad lives half the year up in Oregon. It's a family tradition to get everyone together for fourth of July.

The weather was beautiful. Sunny but not too hot. The little town was quaint. The main thing to do is to go windsurfing and kiteboarding. Of course, I do no such thing. Luckily for me, Colin doesn't either. We ended up going shopping around town, babysitting and playing with our little niece at the playground, and going for a beautiful hike in the Oregon wilderness.

Here I am overlooking Colin's old fishing spot. He used to come here as a kid and go fishing on his own. He wouldn't catch much fish but so cute to imagine little Colin going to fish at his ole river spot.

Master of Urban Planning

I've been behind in updating major events in my life this year. So let's backtrack!

On Thursday May 22nd, I graduated from graduate school. What a relief! I turned in my thesis early May after lots of sleepless nights and countless revisions. So happy to be done! (I also had a nightmarish week where I had to take time off work because my draft erased itself!! These things only happen in horror films, right??)

Anyway, all that was in the past. Here are some snapshots from my graduation day. People who were with me included my parents, my husband and my amazing mother-in-law. It was a small intimate graduation ceremony at the Saratoga Foothill Club.
Here I am all dressed up and ready to head into graduation. Colin ran ahead and got this happy snapshot of us all.

Weddings cost so much!

I just heard today that my cousin's wedding will be costing over $100,000. I am floored. Is that not crazy to anyone? On the other hand, I am excited to attend such a lavish event! I'm expecting to be blown away!

It's Britney Bitch! Vegas Edition!

I just realized while procrastinating that I forgot to write about Britney in Vegas! Colin and I went to Vegas to see Queen Britney earlier this month. It was the same weekend as Chinese New Year so it was extra festive around the casinos as they lured the many Chinese tourists into their gambling traps, me included.

We stayed at Planet Hollywood, aka Britney Mecca. The elevators had Britney. Her face was on the building. She was on the cover of the magazines in the hotel. There were Britney games in the casino. I didn't see any slots though. I'm sure she will have one soon. I can't wait to lose all my money on those machines.

Britney heaven!

Beautiful Britney

Beautiful Britney again.
