now and then

More fun with flickr! Saturday's 'assignment' was "Me then, me now." I found a stash of great childhood pics that I brought back to Portland a couple Christmases ago. I had a tough time deciding which one to use but went with the 'shrieking on the couch' .

Here's the other one I thought about recreating but it would have been way too hard to find those mickey mouse sandals in my size nowadays. I'm thinking this was taken shortly after 'the big haircut' - poor maggie got sick of the continual hair combing battle and chopped all my hair off. I don't look too pleased, do I??

And one more trip down memory lane. Here's me playing with my donald duck parachute at Big Star Lake (thanks to mom for writing on the back of the photo :)

so bloggy together....

I apologize for getting that song stuck in your head, but I wanted to let you know that I'm guest starring on Bruce's blog over at He Said What? Again?!?.

And for those of you not stalking my flickr account, here's a couple pics from Bruce's 40th birthday (and me rockin' out at the Timbers game).

women in trades fair

Oregon Tradeswomen Inc. held a Women in Trades Career Fair last weekend. Women Build had a info table there - which I 'womanned' most of the time but I also took a couple breaks to check out all the cool stuff they had going on. It was really a well-run fair, with lots of hands-on activities for kids and adults. Great crowd too - we sold quite a few t-shirts and signed up some women up for our volunteer list.

Women Build is ramping up for our 2008 build. We have a big kickoff event this weekend for Lowe's National Women Build Week. The new homeowner is such a sweetheart and really excited about working with all of us, which is always great.
