Seattle Pride

It's probably super weird to people looking in from the outside seeing all of my pictures from Seattle Pride Festival. If you have never been to a "gay pride" parade or festival, you need to go to one ASAP! Even if you aren't a supporter, it can be GREAT people watching and there are really great people there! And NO! not everyone is gay!Also, it probably looks really cliche with the rainbows and balloons but that's just the parade for you.
Because I work with Macy's, Lindsay and I got to walk in the parade with Macy's. It was our second year actually walking in the parade, which was special as a couple. More Tacoma Macy's people walked this year so I was surrounded by friends and even my roommate Lacey decided to walk and show her spirit.  We enjoyed the crowds and the people, and the weather was surprisingly PERFECT! Thanks Washington.

Maritime Festival

 Every town has a parade, right? Gig Harbor has a traditional "Maritime Parade" every year and I have only missed ONE in 12 years. Every year we get our chairs and go down to the north side of the parade route and pitch our area and walk over to "Kelly's" for breakfast then watch the 5k and then the parade. Afterward, there is a festival where you can eat and check out booths and watch concerts.

My accomplishments for 2011 felt to small :
Moving out. Quitting Smoking.
Quitting Soda. (RIP DIET COKE). Getting a root canal. (ow) Getting a new job. Getting a new tattoo. Getting a kitten. Creating a blog. Going somewhere I hadn't been. (Georgia). Walking in Seattle pride. I know, THERE ARE A FEW... but not enough!

My best accomplishment was growing out my hair long enough to feel okay with getting a haircut...

I have been breaking out like crazy lately. EW! I think it's because I have over loaded on sugar, junk, stress and bills. Unhappy with my job, my friendships and relationships! I feel like there is a lot more I could be doin and I need to take control of my own life! Because well, it's mine! So I made a goal list. Now obviously, this isn't the first goal list I have made... but it is the first one I am hoping to stick with! I am able to motivate myself if I feel like I have seen an improvement. For example, I quit smoking last year, and did for a long time. Due to recent events, I sort of picked it back up but because it gives me headaches and a cough... I've decided to cut it out of my life once again! I also quit drinking soda last March, and if I was to add the total cans of soda together that I have consumed in the last year and a half... It would probably add up to one can. Go me! But actually, this time I really want to crack down. Not a 3 week high at the gym every morning or a job that I hate just for the money... I want a change!
and - get a fourth tattoo.

My shows.

Slowly ranting... about nothing. Be warned.
If I could eat toffee flavored popcorn, gummy bears and drink rock stars every night, then my TV show watching experience would be much more fulfilling.. all though I must say, the TV shows I had been watching have come to a 2012 ending. Which in my case, totally blows because it gives me NO excuse to lay around on the couch "catching up". I actually have to get up and leave the house. (How productive). What am I suppose to do before bed? How many reruns of L word and family guy can I actually watch? ... No, that is a real question... How many shows will Hulu allow me to watch, because i'm getting concerned. Is it like 4 or 5? ...
I am however, looking forward to the 3rd season of the "Real L word" which should be coming out in Mid-July. How typical of me right? Yeah, I know I am the cliche. I just can't live vicariously enough through the raunchy lives of promiscuous, LA lesbians! I do think if you haven't already, every one of you need to watch Revenge, Grimm and Once upon a time. They are all so good! Completely fiction, non realistic and fantasized, but still incredibly addicting. Also Greys Anatomy, Dexter, The lying game... I haven't really understood the idea of the shows, "American Horror Story" and "The River" yet... they both confuse and scare me all at the same time.  Lindsay and I have gotten into "The big C" and "Workaholics", those both are really interesting and hilarious! I really enjoy watching America's got talent this year, realizing how little talent americans actually have. Touch has turned out to be quite brilliant, and I am looking forward to the return of MTV's awkward and Teen Mom. Which reminds me, "The real housewives of OC" is on in 5 minutes! Or is it "Keeping up with the Karadashians" ? :)


All of these photos are blurry because unfortunately my iphone is slowly dying on me piece by broken piece. But here are some photos from my first climbing trip in a month! I notice that I get super nervous once I am climbing to the top to finish my climbs, but when there is a way to climb over I am able to keep going. It sounds real wacky, but it's just how I get when I am up there. It's an adrenalin rush definitely but hopefully I get better at it soon.

I've been playing around with before and after colors, here is an example :

 I got to see some of my favorite people this last Thursday and it made me SO happy! My friend Phil who left work a while back, and my girl Erika who also used to be a co worker of mine. I had missed them so much. We met up at the Metronome on 6th ave in Tacoma, and chit-chatted about the little things in life. It was nice to finally meet up and relax with friends, time to yourself is nice, but time with people you don't see very often is sometimes even better.
