Karen: OK so which mess do I choose to document? There are many surrounding me right now. I am not a messy person, but with less than 2 weeks before the big move back east we have started packing up many things and leaving some messy, yet organized piles around the apartment.
And, yes, as good as those oysters were they were a big mess for Cassie! Poor girl!
Cassie: Who would have thought that this topic would have caused me such stress. I am quite a neat person and I couldnt think of anything that was messy today. I make my bed before work each day, I put my dishes in the dishwasher after I use them, I put clothes away and clean my kitchen floor quite often because its white. I was able to see Karen this weekend in Seattle and we enjoyed, with others, about 6 dozen happy hour oysters at Elliot's. Needless to say it was messy after....

Karen: Here a few shots from my adventure yesterday afternoon with Tim. We went to Coeur d'Alene Lake for the afternoon and went para sailing for the first time! I was a little nervous at first but it is actually a quite enjoyable experience. It is really peaceful and quiet up there about 400+ feet in the air. It was really nice to look around and view our surroundings from an entirely new perspective.
Cassie: Water is def necessary when the weather is 99 degress out with a heat index of 106 and working out. There are no excuses for Christmas Fitness :)

Karen: I laughed so hard after I took my picture and went to upload it here and saw Cassie's picture. Are we pathetic that we both took pictures of TV shows? What's even more pathetic is that I have Big Brother DVR'd so that I can watch BOTH shows. I do love SYTYCD though. It's probably one of my favorite shows on television now. I wish it was on back in the day when I was a dancer and I may have pushed myself even harder so that I could possibly be on it. But, alas, now I am too old and too out of shape! I may however get back to my dancing roots this fall when I move back to NJ. (thinking about taking the adult classes at AEDE!!)
Cassie: I have never been a real fan of 'reality' shows, but I strangly like Big Brother. This love only started last summer with the introduction from ZD. I have always hated how American Idol made people commit for several days, but during the summer there is nothing else on tv so I am okay with it for BB. As I am sitting here, I am thinking that I do love more reality shows than I originally thought. I get into these shows later on, but I have always wanted to apply to the Amazing Race. And guilty of The Hills, but not since LC left and The City....haha I could probably list more ;)

Karen: Here I am up in the sky on our way back from Portland yesterday. Right out side my window was Mt. St. Helens. I really don't like flying at all but you have to be amazed when you see things like this.
Mount St. Helens is most famous for its catastrophic eruption on May 18, 1980, at 8:32 am which was the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States. Fifty-seven people were killed; 250 homes, 47 bridges, 15 miles of railways, and 185 miles of highway were destroyed. The eruption caused a massive debris avalanche, reducing the elevation of the mountain's summit from 9,677 ft to 8,365 ft and replacing it with a 1 mile wide horseshoe-shaped crater. The debris avalanche was up to 0.7 cubic miles in volume. (info taken from Wikipedia)
Cassie: I love taking pictures of the sky and clouds. I wasnt able to get a sunset pic like I really wanted, it was too hazy out. That could be due to the 100 plus temps today. The summer nights are so peaceful, lazy its my favorite time of year. I love listening to the sound of secetas.
