Day Dos

Splendid day: spent some time in fantastic Bellevue, Corbin is oh-so-jealous. Ate at Daniel's on the 21st floor of the Hyatt, delicious steak (I didn't ask for A1, first time in 23 years).

Kristen and I with Yolanda, a lady I have the pleasure of working with in my new role.
View of Bellevue from Daniel's. Seattle skyline straight ahead.
If I didn't have the short term memory of an 80 year old I could tell you what this harbor is called...pretty though, huh?

It's really unfortunate, but this is how I look in heavy traffic. Heading to Olive Garden for a recognition dinner for our bracelet-gifting-distributor-friend, the main purpose Kristen and I came out to Seattle (the dinner, not the receipt of said bracelets).

Lisa, our shining star (or shining Diamond, I should say) and her husband Tom. We LOVE them. Lisa has a heart of gold, and Tom is painfully funny. Is it bad to have a crush on him?

Another favorite distributor, Sue! I shall never forget the conversation we had about where her laser hair removal specialist has had to laser on the job. I think I piddled a little...

Just so happens Five for Fighting was at our hotel when we got back, or some band that so badly wanted to sound like them anyway.

Smashing day, quite splendid indeed.
*I miss Edward*

Seattle Day Uno

Day one - come and gone. Kristen and I flew in at noon, and had made it to Nordstrom Rack by 2 p.m. Now that's dedication.

Post shopping, we de-plane-ed ourselves and headed to Tacoma for a distributor meeting where Kristen gave a fabulous presentation and showed me the ropes, so I can attend the next meeting by myself!
Problem: am I even old enough to rent a car?

Heading to Tacoma

We instantly headed for the Cullen's after the meeting. Direction were faulty, however, and we ended up at The Cheesecake Factory. Almost as good.

Tamale cakes. Honestly not as good as I wanted them to be. Should've gone for the usual avocado roll.

Sporing our gifits from Lisa Kendall (more to come on her). What a sweetHEART!

A Couple'a Things

1. I got glasses. Do I look like Tina Fey?

2. Is it terrible to go to the temple with a wrinkley temple dress? In my head, no...at least I was there.

3. I'm in Seattle and it's gosh-awful cold.

4. My sissy moved away to Israel with her new husband and I'm sad. She'll be safe, right? Reassure me people.

Lions, and Tigers, and Bears...Oh My! *cliche - gag*

I joined Whit, the boys, Mal and Lucy at the Bean Museum for one entertaining hour.

Huge fan of the stroller...for roughly 40 minutes

Jack performing his role as a "gentleman" in case Lucy was afraid of the animals. I got the idea from her "Hi, Animal" greeting to every beast, that she was not at all afraid.

Big into chewing and drooling

Couldn't leave without a picture of my favorite animal!
And now for the awesome pictures Mal took with her artisitc insight...enjoy

Family Valentine

Rather than fight the crowds Valentine's Day, the Cox family (minus Kris and Kecia, who were greatly missed!) gathered at Outback Monday night for great food and great conversation!

Tadd ordered a half caesar salad, what a girl.

Where are my manners?

Forgive me! I forgot to tell you my most recent news!

I've moved salons! I am now working at Metropolitan Salon on University Avenue and loving it! I especially enjoy the opportunity I have to further my education, both in occasional classes and learning from the other incredible stylists!

Next bit of news...I also received a promotion at work! I'm now a Regional Sales Manager over the Pacific North and Mountain West, sounds important eh?


Clocking out for the last time at Nu Skin. Or the last time forever? Let's hear it for salary!

Look Familiar?

Remember this gem? It arrived in the mail a mere week after my admiring post.

Don't YOU wish you had a mother like mine?

Thank you Mom! I.LOVE.YOU.

Please Pass the Divorce...

Awkward, right? Well to make things unawkward for dear friend Bree, a party was had. For exclusive details go here (rad blog, spend some time here).

Odd picture, no? Not if you particpated in the rip-roarin' scavenger hunt Whit and Lori created.


Karaoke at the Nelson's ended the night perfectly. 50 brownie points to the first person who can guess what song these two lovelies are singing.

P.S: I've discovered I'm a karaoke goddess.

Spark and Ignite

OH my gosh, we're so trendy and modern. Just walk into Spark and you will be too. Gourmet food, smaller portions, fancy presentation, mocktails...what else spells out T-R-E-N-D-Y?

All kidding aside, I'm loving this place

Our newest look-good-always pose


Fancy appletini of Celina's

And my fancy Diet Coke. With lime.

See? Doesn't she look so much better than me? Works everytime.

Go eat here so it stays!

Pinata Birthday

Birthday boy flasing his age. By the look on Jeff's face, I'd say Justin's lying.

Kristen with the newest crony in Exec support

Really Caitlyn? Wash your hair.

The whole gizzity gang

3D cake, compliments of Bree


Our 30 lb pinata Bree and I hung with fishing line
It withstood two giant whacks. Not bad.
