friday find · MJ fever

who do you think of as:
for me there is only one answer.
and the answer is simple:
there are two MJs, duh!
Michael Jackson...the greatest entertainer who ever lived...his music shaped my entire childhood...nevermind that i was born 2+ years after his most amazing Thriller album released...nevermind i was only 3 when he came out with 'man in the mirror' (my favorite song)...i had his Dangerous album on tape, then cd, and then another cd once the first was completely scratched from overuse...i bought this old t-shirt because his brother MIGHT have signed it.
(deep breath)
 to say the least, i'm a big fan.
funny thing is, this post is about the other MJ...
Michael Jordan...the greatest player to play in the NBA...the reason i rocked #23 when i hooped back in the day...the subject of many arguments between hubby and me who seems to think some guy named LeBron is better...this past weekend, at 50 years old, he dunked on a little kid, the replay was played on news stations around the country and i got SUPER excited every time i saw it...i was pumped from just seeing the picture!
needless to say, i'm also a big fan of this MJ.
so this thrifted find my husband scored two weeks ago definitely won him more than a few brownie points.

muse · rockin' out!

two words:
bruno. mars.
five more words:
my husband can't stand him.
but only because i might have a bit of a crush on him.
(hun, you have nothing to worry about. if i ever actually met him, i hear he's a solid foot shorter than me. ok that's not true. but he is only 5'5" which means, in heels, that's simply an uncomfortable height difference. and you know i love my heels!)
so back to bruno...
i went to see him in concert and, of course, had a blast!
and while i do think he is a beautiful man, i wasn't sure there would be anything too inspirational to blog about.  until he came out for the encore songs...and instead of jumping back on stage front and center, he popped up on the drums!

here are a couple more pics from my dreamy 'date' with Bruno.


epic photo bomb from random tiger girl!
 he's nice to look at. he can sing. he is a solo act but keeps his entire band front and center on the stage with him. and he can rock out on the guitar AND drums.

man. good thing he is short...

muse · ZUMBA!

it's totally free (link)...through august 20th.
and me? i never say no to free!
and really, what is more perfect than dancing with a whole bunch of 'friends' in the middle of the seattle center on a gorgeous, blue-sky, sunny day?
not much!
my friend Liz caught this photo of me dancing while looking like mustard and ketchup. (perhaps a different color combo next week? :-P ) 

me and liz...sweaty and happy! 

and nothing better than grabbing a sweaty drink with a friend after a workout. 
what? you want to take our picture? well we're gross but...oh it's free you say? alright, CHEESE!
i love this city.

(hey you. come join us next week, k?)

muse · art wall

two of my favorite portlandians (portlanders? portlandonians? p-towners?) came up to visit the other week. 

and we found this wall.

so we took some pictures.

yes. yes. yes. yes.


we also found this mirror.

exploring + graffiti art + adult sorry (more on that later!) + burgers + ice cream + baseball
a killer weekend.

the kick-off to summer (kinda...)

across the country, this 3-day weekend marks the kick-off to the summer season...ahem...summer BBQ season!
and sure, it's the kick-off to bbqs here in seattle long as you don't mind bbq'ing in the rain...until about mid-july.
but this weekend they're predicting highs of 65. and i'll take it.
it's not quite our record mid-80s month of may highs from a few weeks ago but it's warm-ish.
here are a few photos i snapped of my lil ol' town during our warm stretch. (from a ferry.)
we've got mountains over there... 

...and the city over there.
 "oooh, get THAT shot." he said.
hair! wind! cooperate!
oh seattle. she's a beaut, ain't she?
happy bbq'ing!
xox, jpotmont
