White Water Rafting Trip

Simon: Day Eight, white water rafting.
Lindsey
: Yee-haaa!
Simon
: This is a river, one tough bitch. A swirling, raging, thrashing, torrent of screaming water.Lindsey: Screamin’ water!
Simon
: And I choose my words carefully, because she’s upturned the boat of many a clown, who thought they could tame her. You must respect her, you must respect the river if you wanna come out of her alive…
[Simon turns to look at the river]
…you must respect her, understand her…

[Lindsey pushes Simon in the river]

Lindsey: Huhuhur, he’s in! That’s a tenner you owe me Baz! Hahahaha!-The Fast Show


Earlier this month, Match took me on a white water rafting trip for our first anniversary/birthday. We opted not to buy the photos because they were crazy expensive. But as luck would have it, the other couple from our raft bought them, and she emailed them to me a few days ago. Made my month! I offered to give her money but she insisted that it was a gift to us. How sweet are they? Now I feel kind of bad for complaining that they didn’t paddle. Well, they didn’t, but who cares because now we have fabulous, priceless photos of the trip!! Instead of sitting here gushing about them, I’m just going to let the pictures speak for themselves. Aren’t they badass? Oh, and Match and I are in the second row. You can tell it’s me because I have a ridiculous grin or open mouthed expression on almost every single picture.

Stopping for lunch along the river

We had such a fun trip! I cannot wait to go back.

Talk to Us Tuesday-Camp Stank

You stank. You stank to high heaven.-The Spirit of Truth

with Impulsive Addict and Seriously Shawn

Yay, it’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for Talk to Us Tuesday! I just got back from camping two nights ago and I need to catch up you all. So grab your favorite beverage and let’s chat shall we?

  • We just got back from the river on Sunday. I already miss it.

  • In another life, I would have been a river guide in my college summers off. A summer out in nature, getting great exercise and hanging out with fun co-eds? Sounds like a dream job to me.
  • Ladies, let me tell you, eye candy galore. I think it was a requirement that the guides all be extremely good looking. Male and female!
  • Match may have caught me starring at shirtless Rippling Muscles Aussie Guide, but then laughed when I caught him starring at Perky Blonde Guide wearing nothing but a swim top and cut offs. Whatever preheats the oven folks! Just as long as he’s still coming home with me. 😉
  • I made it down the river without falling out of the boat! Sadly can’t say the same for the other girl in our boat, but she was just fine. It was actually pretty funny.
  •  I’ll do a full write up soon, we are still waiting to get the pictures.
  • On the drive home, we ended up going house hunting and putting in an offer (#3!) on a home.

  • Fingers crossed because I’m so ready to move out of this town and set up some roots. I’m also sick of getting my hopes up and then being disappointed, so I’m trying very hard not to get too excited.
  • I may have been very conscious that we were all camp stank from our trip while we were hunting with the Realtor. Plus the AC stopped working in the Subi for part of the trip back. So we were all kinds of stinky.
  • I tried to stay downwind of our Realtor. He’s working hard for us let me tell you!

So what’s new with you? Catch me up!
