Updates

Just wanted to briefly "update" a couple of older posts:

After Fall coming unseasonably early to the Pacific NW, yesterday was a delightful treat. It was 73*F degrees. A t-shirt w/o jacket or sweatshirt, flip-flops and an iced Carmel Macchiato helped make the day perfect (weather-wise)! I'm really looking forward to a couple more sunshiny days towards the end of this week. We might even try to throw in a visit to the pumpkin patch.

As far as the NY/DC trip is concerned, my sister has our itinerary basically done (Thanks Janeen!), and boy is it FULL! We have so much planned that I don't even know where to start. Hopefully we will be eating at one of Bobby Flay's restaurants, ice skating at the Wollman Rink on Thanksgiving (after the Macy's parade, of course), seeing a play on Broadway starring Jennifer Garner (my all time favorite actress), getting dessert at Serendipity 3 (from the movie Serendipity), going on numerous tours and seeing numerous memorials, watching the tree lighting ceremony at Rockefellar Center; just to name a few. We are still very excited!

Work on the house is still progressing, Praise the Lord. We now have a front porch and covered deck along with gutters! Plumbing is almost completely finished and about a days worth of electrical left to do. Then we are ready for sheet rockers! After that we should be painting and then flooring goes in or kitchen (not sure which one we will do first). Hopefully I'll be posting pictures soon!

Oh, that sounds like SUCH a fun trip! I've heard the frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity is supposed to be GREAT, you have to try one and tell me all about it. :)
