Friends Make the World Go ‘Round (and Beard Competitions)
it’s super fun when friends come to visit because that means you get to do ridiculous things and play on the beach instead of working-yay! our friend cassie came to visit this weekend and we started off the adventures with a ‘beard competition.’ yes, you read that correctly.
my husband is basically the opposite of bearded men-thank goooodness. i don’t really do facial hair.
here’s the whole gang and thanks to beki for bringing this competition to our attention. this is the reason you have friends with different interests than you so they are aware of hilarious things going on that you probably would be clueless about.
i would also like to say that i had nothing to drink that night and my eyes are half open because it was 11:30pm, a full 1.5 hours after my bedtime. we left soon after because i’m an old lady. you should also be impressed that my husband is able to do a selfie and fully fit 7 people in it-he’s basically bradley cooper.
yesterday we spent all day at cannon beach, oregon and it was a truly glorious day. these past few weeks have had more sun than rain and it truly makes a world of difference. this is very different than the sideways rain and 35mph wind we experienced when my mom and stepdad were in town!
our lovely friend cassie is also a stellar photographer (and was our wedding photographer) so be sure to check out cassie rosch photography-she’s willing to traveling and takes the best pictures.
as you are driving back on 26-east from the coast to portland, you will pass a jerky station. you should stop there because they really have a wide variety of jerky (60 to be exact) and other less meaty snacks. we only a little bit felt like it could end as a horror movie so go before dark just to be safe.
our carload purchased the alligator, kangaroo and beef jerky. i tried none because i am still traumatized from eating buffalo jerky in front of a buffalo. what i can tell you is that the kangaroo smelled awful.
the rain is setting in tomorrow probably until june so there is a high probability that i will be bringing my desk outside to do work in the sun! and maybe try the kangaroo if i’m feeling daring.
