back to life. back to reality.

We had a fun little end-of-summer/43rd birthday bash for Phil this weekend. We went to a Seattle Mariners game Saturday night and headed west to the Washington coast on Sunday. (I wasn't really all that impressed with the little beach towns of Pacific City and Ocean Shores. If you're heading west and you want to go to the beach, may I kindly suggest Oregon.) However, last night we stayed in Long Beach and it's not too bad. They have a nice little boardwalk - where I took this new favorite self-portrait - and some other fun things you'll soon see. Tune in tomorrow for Ten on Tuesday (the what you can do at the beach on your husband's birthday edition).

I head back to school tomorrow for orientation. Thursday night is Open House and school starts next Wednesday. Do I feel ready? Not one little bit.
