Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend!!  We packed up and headed south to my parent’s house/cabin in Bend OR (Sunriver to be exact, :0) for those of you in the know) and yes, Jack even tagged along too!

Road trip for Labor day with Jack and Ash…Maggie is in the back 🙂

When we got back from our trip on Monday, we received a couple exciting bits of news:

#1- We will be featured on HGTV’s House Hunters October 8th.  

Click here for more details! Mark and Ashley on House Hunters Seattle http://www.hgtv.com/house-hunters/a-seattle-couple-has-trouble-deciding-on-a-condo-or-a-house-in-seattle/index.html

We filmed back in June so it is exciting to actually have a date :0)

#2- We were selected to move on to the 2nd round of the American Lamb Pro-Am!  

The competition will be held October 10th at the Cedarbrook Lodge (http://www.cedarbrooklodge.com/).  We will be paired with Chef Bobby Moore of the Barking Frog (http://www.willowslodge.com/barking_frog/) and will be preparing our lamb dish with him.

#3- We just received our press passes to attend the Galway International Oyster & Seafood Festival (http://www.galwayoysterfest.com) later this month!  After we attend the festival we will be popping over to France to indulge in the Parisian lifestyle….good thing we have been taking French lessons :0)

#4- Not really news to us BUT on the 2nd of September Mark and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary!!  The past year has been amazing and we have managed to stay on the move– hopefully the upcoming year will be just crazy and chaotic, just how we like it :0)

On top of Mt. Bachelor with Ash.

This fall/winter should be an exciting ride and we look forward to sharing it with you all!
