ahhh ya! i’m finally back home from portland (oregon)… after almost a month! that place is so beautiful, but man, i could not live there. i need sun. the whole time i was there it only came out once or twice, for like a second, just to taunt me.
so good to be safe and sound back in good ol’ 1955… wait.
i can’t think of a better way to re-start blogging than by showing you all this kissy, huggy, happy couple (OUR FAVORITE KIND!) jillian and james.
we first met this super cute couple at kimberly and cory’s crazy fun wedding a couple years ago. jillian + james wanted to have their engagement session in the quirky, down to earth neighborhoods of normal heights and kensington in san diego.
we were just getting started when james said he needed to make a quick stop at a pawn shop to get a little cash for drinks and dinner later that night. the negotiations were short.
next stop was their favorite little pub, blind lady ale house. saving the best (and by best i mean most potent margaritas on the planet) for last, we ended the night at their favorite restaurant, Ponce’s.
thanks for being so fun and in love. also, a huge thanks again for dinner and margaritas. did i mention how flippin awesome the margaritas were? oh, i did?
i think we may need to go back for more. don’t judge *wink*
can’t wait for your wedding jillian and james! if your family and friends are half as fun as you two are, your wedding will be the tequila in ponce’s margaritas.
this looks a lot like portland, except there’s no rain in sight and i don’t need to wear 4 layers of clothing.
99 cans of beer – on – the – wall
before moving on to the next shot, i have to re-tell the tale that james told us about the can pictured above on the right. now, you know it must have been good for us to post of picture of a team that is not our beloved hometown under-achievers, i mean, chargers. but i digress.
the story goes something like this. a group of james’ friends had one friend that would do just about anything, if the price was right. as it happened, they were all hanging out a few years ago when they decided they had a worthy challenge, so they each ponied up 5 roosevelts (to save you from doing the math, that’s 50 cents) and bet their friend a grand total of 5 bucks that he couldn’t drink the entire can of the aforementioned iron city beer with the pittsburgh steelers team photo on it. not one to back down from a beer related challenge, and believing he was hanging with a bunch of chumps, the gentleman promptly accepted.
here’s where it gets awesome.
both the team photo on the outside of the can and the frothy beverage stored inside the previously unopened can were circa 1980. undaunted by the “pop top”, he peeled it off and took, what was to be for everyone lucky enough to witness it, a hilarious gulp of the vintage brew.
the hallucinations stopped several hours later.
upon pouring the remaining liquid from the can into a glass for inspection it was discovered that it… what were james’ words… oh ya, looked more like “swamp water” than beer.
you are a lover boy! you are a lover boy!
