Surprise, Surprise!

Alright, alright it's about time I did a post on this thing (eric). Lindsay has done a lot of the other blogs, ok well most of... ok more like all of the blogs on this thing and I figured it was my turn.
I would blog more but hey, I got married, haven't I done enough? I mean that's the end goal and all and now that I've arrived I figured why do anything else? Right?
Anyways here's a little picture I wanted to share with the great world of unknown readers out there, some family, some friends, some creepy people that really have too much time on their hands... (don't let that discourage you readers I don't know, really I'm kind of flattered you're reading this. I mean, people I don't even know peering into my life... I'm special! Oh, what's that? You're interested in what's going on in Lindsay's life and could care less about mine? Dang! No wonder she's the one who writes the blogs.
Anyways again, back to here's the little picture. These past couple of weeks I've been working like a mad man and I decided me and Lindsay were about due for a real live date. Somehow I passed it off on her to plan the date while I finished... working. So when I got home she swept me away to a night of surprises. Starting out at Makahnas to have a bite to eat and enjoy the wonderful sounds of Corey and Whitney Parnell. After that we hurried away to make some appointment which what I had no idea was (Grammar? I don't care)
When we were passing the sportsmans warehouse it dawned on me we must be heading to Sisters. We pulled in for a showing of Drillbit, or Sargent Drillbit, something like that, at the Sisters Movie House. Which I must say is a wonderful movie. I really hope Owen Wilson doesn't get too depressed to make movies because he is hilarious!
After the show we drove about 100ft over to none other than the Five Pine Lodge. And Lindsay explained how she was closing an old bank account and was surprised to find some extra bucks and if it was ok with me then we could use it to stay the night for a romantic evening in one of Five Pine's cottages (see picture) I agreed this seemed like a wise use of this surprise bonus money but told her being a surprise and all I lacked all over my overnight supplies. Well she was one step ahead of me and had already packed me a bag and we stayed and had a incredible little get away. YAY! So here's a pic of us the next morning heading to Sisters Coffee house for breakfast and we almost got tangled in those black briers coming in on the sides of the picture. Oh wait, that's just me being creative with my photoshop brushes. :)

Comments? How about where is your favorite get a way if you have a chance?

One of our recent Bed & Breakfasts was Columbia Inn-Ithaca, NY. We went right before Jacob was born. We arrived to find hot apple cider and chocolate chip cookies waiting for us. We enjoyed walking around downtown Ithaca and watching the fall colors. Oh yeah and we went to the outlet mall on the drive back to Webster.

aw, what a great post Eric! How about that drive from Bend to Sisters... amazing, right!?

If I could go anywhere, I guess I would have to go to New Zealand and take the Lord of the Rings path to Mordor... (Office anyone?)
