Ski to Sea Weekend

Photo Friday

Although I have failed to post a proper entry this week, I do hope you will accept my sincerest apologies as I have been averaging 15 hour workdays and stuffing my face with cupcakes just to make it through the week. This past weekend Dan and I made it up to our hometown Bellingham to take in the Ski to Sea festivities and meet up with some long lost friends. It was quite the series of luncheons, play-dates, and coffee shop gatherings. In the end we were exhausted, happy, and full. See evidence below.

Our first gathering brought us together for some morning coffee and gossip with friends. Baby Logan provided the entertainment.

I was the bearer of cupcakes. I practically died and went to Red Velvet heaven.

Happily munching our goods, we almost didn't notice that one of my greatest friends in the world (that's you Steph!) just happened to stop in for coffee. While she lives in Canada now, it was quite the "small-town" moment.


Steph was with her sister Bobbie. Bobbie has a debilitating addiction to caffeine. We tried to cut her off. We were unsuccessful.


No party is complete without my bestest gal pal Natalie.


Natalie's husband Dirk was relieved when Dan and I walked in. Dirk and Dan made up the testosterone team and were quite out of their league with all us chatty girls, babies, and cupcakes.


The next day we headed to downtown Fairhaven for the Ski to Sea festival. We had lunch with a friend who wins the award for knowing me the longest (since we were four!), along with her husband Brady and daughter Macey.


Macey enjoyed her salsa cocktail.


The Ski to Sea event takes teams through a relay of skiing, biking, running, kayaking, canoe riding, and such. We watched as several teams crossed the finish line.


I had a moment of lens envy.


On our last day in Bellingham we got together with my friend Denise and her husband Darcy. These two are the most attractive people on the face of the planet. And they are having a baby. Watch out Brad and Angelina, the result of the Darcy Denise experiment will own your children.


We also met up with my friend Tamara who I met while working at a teenage drug and alcohol treatment center. Side note: we went to a Justin Timberlake concert once and I flat out fainted in the middle of the audience. Justin was singing "It's my D*ck in a box." Let's just say Tamara and I have bonded over a lot.


Sadly the long weekend came to an end. While I left out a lot of details (lunch with Debbie, Kate, and Kelly at Pad Thai, campfires at Silver Lake, grilled cheese at my Aunt Jami's house, and early Denny's breakfasts with the in-laws). I didn't forget you. I just don't have photos of said incidents, and this is Photo Friday after all :) Enjoy your weekend!
