Google Maps new feature

Yesterday Adam told me about a new feature that they have on Google maps. The new feature is called street view. The feature allows you to have a real view of an area of interest. For example, I typed in my work address and clicked on street view. When the picture comes up you can do a full 360 turn. When I turned the image to face directly at my office, there was a picture of me standing outside the office, talking to my co-workers boyfriend. It look like it was last summer they took the pictures. My theory is that they had a van driving around that was taking 360 pictures once every few seconds. Check out this link, type in 7304 SE Milwaukie ave, Portland, OR 97202. then once you pull up the street view, pan to the right, that is me in the pink skirt. Very futuristic!!

Working girl.

I love the neighborhood where I work. I like to call it Urban Hip Hippie! There are lots of boutiques, bakeries, restaurants, and of course two Starbucks! My favorite shop is Stars Antique Mall. It is almost a whole block of antiques, definitely enough good bargains to get a girl in trouble. Just 3 blocks away is a big beautiful park, complete with a man made duck pond and wondering stream. When I need a break it is a nice get away!

We have a small office. Right now it is just me, Lisa and the main agent Chad. Lisa is so much fun to work with. She is Ten years older then me with an 18 year old son, can you believe it. She looks like she could be 22. Some people get all the breaks. Chad was gone all day today, so we took the liberty of taking lots of pictures and relaxing a little. "It's party time," is what Lisa likes to say when ever Chad is gone. Although we have never partied it is still a nice thought!

Cute Shawny Pants

My Younger sister Sarah's son Shawn is getting so big! I have not seen him in a year and a half. I think it might be time to make a trip out to Florida and visit the little rascal. Happy half birthday Shawn!

I don't know what there doing over there but, they are sure doing something right! If you care to check out the wonderful cheese cake for your self, Piece of cake is located in the Sellwood district of Portland.

Living close.

I know I have already posted a lot about Sam and Jessica. I am so excited that they are going to be living close to us! We always have fun together and they both awsome people! Ideally I would love to have all of mine and Adams family living close together! Growing up there was a family of three brothers that all lived on the same street. I just remember thinking that would be so cool! I know that will probly never happen, but I can always dream. Needles to say I am really excited to have Sam and Jessica living so close! And I am already thinking of camping trips and adventures for us to go on together!

Your Candy Heart Says "First Kiss"

You're a true romantic who brings an innocent hope to each new relationship.

You see the good in every person you date, and you relish each step of falling in love.

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a romantic dinner your sweetie cooks for you

Your flirting style: friendly and sweet

What turns you off: cynics who don't believe in romance

Why you're hot: you always keep the romance alive

Happy Valentines Day!

More of Sam and Jessica's wedding

Boys will be boys

It is so funny to see Adam, Chris and Sam when they all get together. It like they revert back to 4th grade. Even Smoothdog can't help but get in on the action.

I need a vacation!

This is where I want to be right now. Somewhere nice and warm. Walking along a beach with the sand between my toes. There is nothing like a little sunshine and sand to lift your spirits.

Sting - Sacred love

I love rediscovering old CDs. I recently heard a few of the songs from Stings, Sacred love album and fell in love with it all over again. I am a big fan of Sting; in fact he would probably be one of the few people that I would go into hysterics if I ever met. Anyways I think this would be the perfect CD to snuggle up to with your sweetie! I’m thinking Valentines Day!

My Cute Husband

His Name: Adam Robert Cottam
How hot is he on a scale from 1-10? 10 Baby yea!
How long have you been married?: It will be 2 years on March 18th!
How long did you date?: We dated 1 year and then got engaged; then married 6 months later.
How old is he: 33
Who eats more? I would definitely have to say I eat more, unfortunately! Adam has a chocking problem when he eats, so he has to eat a lot slower and therefore eats less. Sometimes I wish I had that problem!
Who said "I love you" first? That would be me. I think I kind of freaked him out because it was kind of early on in the relationship. I just felt like being bold!
Who sings better? Me, I don't hear him sing that much. But I think he could be good!
Who’s temper is worse? I am going to have to give this one to Adam. He is definitely a fiery one! Sometimes I think that he should have red hair! I can have my moments too for sure.
Who does the dishes? I do them most of the time. Adam is good at helping out too though.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I think I do.
Who pays the bills? We both pay the bills. Adam pays them through his business, and I do the household bills
Who mows the lawn? I f we had a lawn I would make Adam do it. Although I do love the smell of freshly cut grass, so I might have to mow it every once in a while.
Who drives when you are together? I do. Adams jeep is a gas guzzler so we run around it is in my little Honda civic.
Who is more stubborn? We both are really stubborn. I will not budge if I want my way. We tend to but heads about this quite often.
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? We both do. Adam will think about it for a while and then say he is sorry. I don't like to fight so I would rather say sorry and get it over with right away.
Who proposed? Adam did. I knew that it was coming though. We went and picked out my ring together.
Who has more friends? I know Adam does! Adam is so friendly and talks to everyone. When ever we go to the gym Adam spend half the time just hanging out talking to people. I had a lot of friends back in my single days, but since then a lot have gone different directions. I am the type of person that needs to have that one on one conversation with someone in order to make a connection.
Who has more siblings? I do. I have four beautiful sisters. Adam has 2 brothers and a sister.
Who wears the pants in the family? I think that we share the pants. Although sometimes it can be a tight fit!

How cute are we!

With all of this wedding business wraped up, it has made me think a lot about my own wedding! I had fun planning and getting things ready for our big day. I told Adam that we need to get married again so that I can buy another dress and plan another party. Needless to say Adam was not too excited about that! We will be married 2 years on March 18th. I still can't believe what an amazing man I snaged!

Sam & Jessica are married!
