Ribbed Cowl

Wow... it's definitely been awhile since I finished a knitting project.  I think I started this one when I was in Alaska in April.

It's just a simple 1x1 ribbed cowl about 13 inches long.

Of course since it's been so long I can't remember how many stitches around it was or what the brand of the yarn is.  I think it's a mix of cotton, merino, and silk, but I really can't remember.

Today, was a long day. I worked from 8pm to 8am flew to San Francisco (the only sleep I've had so far) and then had my first fitting for the suit for the wedding. And oh my is it sweet. I've been working with Al's Attire who was suggested to us from the person making Adinas dress. It's still in process but should be ready for pickup in a couple of weeks.

You can see it's not done yet. I asked for a retroey kind of rat pack meets mad men kind of a cut then went from there. It's brown wool and has a bunch of little accents and details which are in our wedding colors and your going to have to wait for. In the mean time here's one more shot...

Also I've started work with Swedish Medical as an Emergency Room Technician in their First Hill Campus. Im working every other Thurs, Fri, Sat, Mon, Tuesday nights from 8pm to 8:30am. It's not being a paramedic on a 911 ambulance but hey, it lets me live in Seattle and with my gurlie full time so all in all a positive thing. Though I do miss seeing everyone on my off days. Anyway I'll leave you with a picture of the front of my ED and an invitation to come up and visit us in our new place!

Engagement Pictures by Our Wedding Photographer!

We got an amazing gift for our wedding. Seriously. Amazing.

I can't remember if I've mentioned it yet on here, but...my Aunt Suzanne (my mother's sister) is gifting us our wedding photography! Her good friend, Claire Barrett will be our wedding photographer and also did a set of engagement photos for us down in the Los Angeles area in the end of June.

Here are some of our favorite shots;

You can see more in the slideshow that Claire put together for us here.

Updates to Our Wedding Website

As we get further down the road towards the wedding...87 days today...we're updating our wedding website with more information and more fun stuff!

I just added a slideshow of the engagement photos we took last November with the awesome Jenny!

And soon I will add another slideshow of the engagement photos we took 2 weeks ago down in Los Angeles with our wedding photographer Claire! For now though, here is a link to the slideshow she put together for us.

4th of July

We drove about 5 minutes to the downtown Fremont area, parked our car, and walked the Burke Gilman trail to Gas Works Park in Wallingford. We walked straight through security since we had no bags for them to go through and easily through the crowds to find a seat overlooking Lake Union.

It was so easy and stress free. Almost unbelievable.

The fireworks display was amazing and sychronized with some great popular music. We both agreed, the best we have ever seen.  Zeke even has some new favorite fireworks!

After the fireworks, the Presidents of the United States of America, played some of their hit's from when Zeke and I were younger, so that was great fun to sing along to! And it was just such a cool experience, especially considering that it was free!

Eastern Washington

I had a workshop to go to out in Selah, Washington which is sort of in the south/central/eastern part of the state and Zeke was wonderful enough to come with me for the overnight trip.  The drive was beautiful and we saw many places to go camping in the future.  Below is a picture from driving back home to Seattle and in the distance you can see the Cascade Range which we drove over through Snoqualamie Pass.
