December 7, 2011: Cold Kitty

If I had just been a little quicker with my camera, I would have caught a picture of Kia stretched out on top of the heating vent.

Salt and pepper shakers in our wedding pottery that my godmother and aunt gave me over Thanksgiving. She also gave us an oil pourer.

We bought some beer signs on Craigslist. You can't see it in the picture, but the Olympia Gold beer actually bubbles!! So cool.

November 30, 2011: The Return of Mr. Hanky

Rob took a picture of me in my new coat just to make sure I still looked like Mr. Hanky. He has concluded that I do. I am just happy with how well my scarf coordinates :)

November 29, 2011: Giant Lava Lamp

We bought a giant lava lamp, and yes, that's a full-sized wine bottle next to the lamp, for scale.

November 27, 2011: The Drive Back to Albany

I arrived in Portland and drove back to Albany. There was an accident on the freeway, and I got stuck in a little traffic.
A truck had turned on its side. I'm not sure you can see it very well, but these are the best shots I could get.

November 26, 2011: Mr. Hanky

I ate out at a restaurant with artwork that reminded me of Rob's.
Meanwhile, Rob was trying Miracle Fruit, a berry that makes sour foods taste sweet. Apparently it makes beer taste gross.
I got a new coat for Christmas. Rob says I look like Mr. Hanky, the Christmas Poo :-P

I arrived in Illinois to spend the weekend with my family and Sage, the old dog. She absolutely refused to pose for a picture, so I had to hold her head up for the camera. Sage is showing her age, but I still love her :)
Meanwhile in Oregon, Kia was completely oblivious to the fact that I was cheating on her.

November 24, 2011: Lisa Leaves for Illinois

The kitty was surprised to hear that I would be leaving her for a weekend. Would Rob make her food the right way??
Later that night, Lisa arrived at her hotel room in Portland to try to catch a couple hours of sleep, but pig and cow kept her awake. Party animals!

November 23, 2011: Cookies!!

Shelly sent us some amazing Christmas cookies. They are so delicious :)

November 22, 2011: Pumpkin Pie!

Rob and his co-teacher always ask the kids to bring pumpkin pies on the last day of school before Thanksgiving. Usually, they don't get much. This year they got 6 large pies and 1 small! I even got to have a couple of slices :)

November 21, 2011: 'stache

Took the car for an oil change today and discovered that a small thingamabob coming from the engine is broken. The guy at the oil change place didn't even know what it was :) We will have to take the car in for repairs soon.
Whiskey sours in our favorite tumblers. Yummy!
