Its high time for a new post. SO much fun lately!

First of all, I went on vacation with my best friends from home. These ladies are THE MOST. Words cannot describe how fun this trip was.

My birthday! Another year gone by. My besties planned the most magical day ever. I just found out were going parasailing.

Its pretty hard to say no to a free birthday shot. Even if it is 11 am.

My mom made me this birthday cake.

I got to come home to this beast.

Back to work for a bit….

Georgia forever.

After work shenanigans.

Fun tattoo on Keegan! Keegan makes our business cards and he’s a lovely fella to boot. http://keeganwenkman.com/

so excited about this.

epic weather lately.

my favorite word.

healed pics of grant’s seaflowers. I love this tattoo.

Then I went to the coast for a belated birthday celebration with my favorite Portland ladies. This year was officially my favorite birthday ever.

Melanie doesn’t really care for the beach.


Icon ladies on the ROAD!

Ok, I gotta go. I’m totally late for work. More soon people! XO

It feels like its been too long since my last post. Oh man, I have so many pictures to share. You better grab a cup of coffee, kick back and relax. Get ready for a massive blog post.

First of all, I kicked town for a few days and went up to Bellingham to visit one of my dearest friends in the whole wide world. I love it up there. I want to go back. If I could spend every weekend on Jason’s couch getting drunk on red wine and listening to Led Zeppelin, I would.

must protect your pizza at all times.

dark side of the kitchen.

There was  snow!! I’m from California, so the slightest amount of snow makes me pretty psyched. My car looks really cute covered in snow.


Ok, ok, moving on. I went to my first timbers game.

Things are blooming!!! We planted this Daphne bush in Melanie and Peter’s backyard for my rat Missy, who is buried there under it. I’m really happy its blooming.

Oh yeah, right, and I did some tattoos too.


Finally got healed pictures of Jason’s samuri. More like this please!!

Hey remember when I did this?

Look what Kanya’s boyfriend made her! This is the most awesome thing I have seen in a loooonng time.

Kanya lives on the east coast and she came all the way from Portland, Maine to get another tattoo from me last week. This was so fun. Kanya is so cool. Come back to Portland Kanya! These photos are all after I tattooed her arm for 4 hours, so they are kind of puffy. Healed ones coming soon.

Cat prints in snow.

rainy icon days

sunny icon days

Whew, that was a lot of pictures. It took an entire french press of coffee to get me through all that. Only one last thing to do–song! I’m having a serious obsession with the Led Zeppelin album “Physical Graffitti” right now. Totally the soundtrack to my life, really gettin’ me through the days. Also, George Harrison’s “Living in the Material World.” I was born in the wrong era, I swear.
