Funemployment: All good things must come to an end

Yes, it's true I'm no longer funemployed. I got a real job!!! Check me a out. I've been with COMPASS for two months now. The people I work with are really cool AND the mission of the organization is in line with my life goals. It feels so good to be back using my brain.

Before starting work I do what I always do when I'm broke: go on vacation. My Seattle besties, Kim, Cait, Kirsten, and I went to Sedona to get in touch with our vortexes. We're planning on doing this bonding trip once a year. We can't always wait for a bachelorette party to have fun.

First stop after proper caffination: climbing a mountain. Camelback was owned.

We came to Sedona for the sun. Note to self, wait for May.

Bunker cashed in her hotel points so we could stay in style.

Classy is really the theme running through this whole trip.

Devils Bridge: The most beautiful hike of my life to date.

I also head up to Seattle any chance I can.

The obsession continues. He's a biker like his auntie.

Getting into Portland Culture

Yup, the occasional Timbers game.

Themed Parties: Bunker visiting is just the excuse to go to my first 90s party. Yes, 90s parties exist now.

Yoga + Hiking: Bunker and I escape the hipsters for some fresh air.

Technically the half marathon was in Seattle. But, my training runs helped me get the lay of the land in Portland. I found training beforehand is a much better way to go.

My upcoming adventures will include but not be limited to: day of coordinating Karissa's wedding (got to use that Urban Light Studios training somehow), doing Dallas (visiting Colleen and watching the Ducks in the Cowboy Cup), going to my high school ten year reunion, and turning 28! My next post will also include a family photo shoot from my parents' 40th Wedding Anniversary. This shoot was even better than the pre-chemo photos - get ready.
