Why Tortue Me So?

Fall is fabulous for many reasons. I love the cool weather and the beautiful changes in landscape- but what I love most about fall is bringing out my sweaters and coats. I am working on a wardrobe revamp and would sell my soul to purchase the adorable selection of coats at Victorias Secret. So hopefully with new job in tow and beautiful salary increase I can obtain at least one of said coats. Observe:

Could you die? I could.

Tsunami What?

I did it. I conquered my fears of deadly tsunamis and went camping on the beach. Yes. I actually spent the night in a tsunami hazard zone and lived to tell the tale. We gathered some of our new dental friends (mainly ones with good camping gear) and took off for a quick coastal trip. First stop- Cannon Beach to pick up husbands after a luxurious dental getaway (To make ourselves feel better about missing out on the party Malorie and I heisted some mouth wash and tea packets! Ha! Take that OHSU). We made a brief trip to the beach before taking off for Tillamook.

We stopped at this incredible spot along Highway 101.

We set up camp with elventy too many people at our site. The rangers were not pleased. And who can blame them?They must have known what party animals were are. Just look at Steve going crazy with Catch Phrase.

Tsunami. Hazard. Zone. Kill. Me.

This is just Tyler practicing his etchings of the brachial plexis.

We are serious campers. See the blazing fire? No? Yeah. We ran a little short on fire. Smoke however, we had plenty of.

We spent the following morning freezing our butts off- but playing on the beach none the less. Malorie is one mad kite flier.

Jon and Willy actually did freeze their butts off.

Despite the rather chilly conditions Cape Lookout was beautiful and we had a lovely weekend.

A Little Quote

"no one can predict to what height
you can soar, even you will not know
until you spread your wings "

Fey Real?

While trying to watch last week's episode of High School Musical Get in the Picture on our DVR we were incensed to learn that half of the recording was tainted with some GOP political hoopla from Minnesota. Angry and disappointed we were about to delete said recording when we paused at the sight of what appeared to be Saturday Night Live actress and writer Tina Fey giving some speech about how John McCain represented political change. Confused by such a statement and by the face that spoke it we soon learned that the delerious woman was the now well known governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.

All political opinions aside who would you rather have as Vice President, the republican governess of the state with the largest protected oil fields in the US, or the writer/producer of Mean Girls? Well we actually don't really care we just vote for a very fabulous SNL skit. Please please please? Because really-that is the most we can hope for.
