Ashland is all that!

We just got back from a fabulous weekend in Ashland. Scotty came up from Hollywood and I came down from Corvallis. We met up with our dear friends, Casey and Lauren, so watch a screening of an original hip-hop play written by Casey, Jon, Ian and their friend.

It was AMAZING! It was a brilliant blend of gospel meets rap, with muted earth tones splashed with vibrant red. Everything about this play (technically a "reading") was beautiful, even the ugly, creepy, and scary parts.

I wish you could have all been there to see it. And I truly hope opportunity comes knocking and it gets picked up by a producing company or something.

Scotty went back down to Hollywood for (hopefully) just a few more days. In the meantime, Case and Lauren are in town, so give them a shout out and/or buy them a beer (they are truly deprived in CA with a lack of 1) good coffee and 2)good micro brews!

Not exactly what I had in mind

I was super excited to get my new REI rain jacket in the mail. I bought it on Ebay for $15, what a steal....

...until I pulled it out of the package and the womens size 6 ended up being a kids size 6, bummer!!!!

Does anyone want a kids jacket? I'll sell you a nice one for $15!

Chics in the snow!

In an effort to keep myself busy while Scotty is in LA, the ladies and myself had a little adventure weekend which included some pretty incredible backcountry snow shoeing.
The players:
Lovely Brea...
...Silly Tiffany...
...and Crazy Crystal
We were blessed with some pretty incredible powder, which made for a very challenging hike straight up the hill.
We stopped for a stellar picnic in the snow. Right after this picture my camera slipped off the tree branch it was perched on and sunk a foot into the snow...good thing it's waterproof and freeze proof, eh?
Mighty conquerors!
My after taking a tumble in the snow, back for more. See you next time.

Why did I leave Hollywood?

It's only been 5 days since I left Scotty and the crew in Hollywood, and I already have been looking at plane tickets back.

Studio update: the wood got delivered and they started construction. Scotty is really excited about making progress and the gang is excited about Jon's new commercial. (Thanks Jenna for doing the work to find it.)

Miss you guys, hope to see you soon!

I forgot to take pictures of Hollywood

So life has been a whirlwind since we got home 3 months ago, but I am not complaining. I am thankful and excited for whatever life has for us. As you may know our dear friends Casey and Lauren moved to Hollywood to follow their dreams of music and photography. The plan was for Scotty to go with them and stick around for a month or so to work on the recording studio that they want to build. Pretty last minute the plans changed and we ended up driving down a week after Casey and Lauren so I could see them all too and then I would fly back home.

Needless to say hanging with the crew was AMAZING. I had a blast and am already looking for cheap tickets so I can go visit again soon. The only bummer part of the whole thing is saying goodbye, even if it's only for 8 weeks or so, it still sucks. So, I left my hubby in CA along with my crazy friends and I can't wait to see them all again soon. And wouldn't you know it, I was so caught up in the weekend (it was a big weekend after all--more on that) and I only took 4 pictures.....4! So, sorry kids, but that's all you get.

The ONLY shot I got of all us together and naturally it's blurry. But I love these guys, I can't wait to go back down to see the crew in a couple months.

We are squinting in this picture because we forgot what the sun looks like. Actually, we wanted to see the view from the roof before I left because it's spectacular and the rain finally let up.
