Depoe Bay Adventure

24 Apr

depoe bay 2

You guys!  Oh my goodness, we went to Depoe Bay yesterday, and it was fabulous!  The weather was perfect, and the scenery was so beautiful.  One of my favorite things we did was explored some really cool, secluded beaches where you had to hike on narrow trails to get to them.  It was peaceful because there wasn’t very many people around, making it feel like you had the place to yourself!  I guess this bay is a great place for whale watching, but we didn’t see any while we were there.

To end our adventure we went to this really yummy restaurant for dinner where they served amazing, fresh seafood.  The restaurant had huge windows overlooking the bay, and the view was breathtaking.

Jonathan and I both agreed that one of the things we will miss most about our time in Corvallis is living so close to the Oregon Coast.  I feel so lucky that we can just take off for an afternoon to the beach.

Happy Wednesday friends!


Visit from Grandma Jan

11 Feb


Hi friends! Happy Monday!  I am sorry that I didn’t post a few days last week.  Mid-terms ended up getting the best of me after all, and I was slammed with school work.  I might be taking a couple days off this week as well to try and get everything done.

I wanted to do a quick check-in though and show you guys a new trick I learned in Photoshop…photo animation!  I have always wanted to learn how to do this, and I’m so glad I finally figured it out!

Also, we had a blast up at the coast last week with Grandma Jan!  Jonathan’s grandma rented a time share in Newport, Oregon, and it was so fun going up to visit her!  We showed her the sights, ate amazing food, and soaked up some (very) rare Oregon Coast sun!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Thank You Cards

5 Nov

Good morning!  How was your weekend?  Jonathan and I spent the weekend in Newport, Oregon with all of his family.  We rented a house and stayed close to the beach.  It was so fun to spend time with family and explore the coast.  We ate at so many good restaurants where fresh seafood was always served!  So yummy!  We also went to the aquarium where all my cute nieces and nephews went crazy over all the sea animals.  Who am I kidding, I went crazy over them too!  The sea otter is just sooo cute.

Today I am so excited to show you the fun thank you cards I designed for my sister (ps. isn’t this picture by Ben Blood perfection?!).  We decided to take one of the Christmas card designs and adapt it to a thank you card.  I am so happy with how they turned out so I wanted you to get to see them too.  This also helps to show that you can take any design and adapt the colors and wording to your own style.  Enjoy!

Happy Monday!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Oregon Coast Attire

19 Sep

Jonathan and I took off to the Oregon Coast yesterday morning and had a fabulous time!  We ordered coffee t0-go and then drove 53 miles to Newport, OR where we went into town for some yummy breakfast.  After breakfast we spent some time walking and talking along the beach and then headed off to the Aquarium.  I saw the cutest Sea Otter ever!  We also got to explore the tallest lighthouse in Oregon and then finished the day with some tasty seafood on the bay.

I thought I would do a quick post on Oregon Coast attire.  This may sound silly but I never know what to where to the beach in Oregon.  The weather is always pretty cold and overcast but you never know.  And if it is just a day trip, you need an outfit for both a sandy beach and walking in town.

Below was the outfit I chose and it seemed to be pretty versatile.  It wasn’t the cutest outfit of all time but it was definitely comfortable and fun.
