    Name? Patti
    Job? Newspaper reporter
    Wedding date/location? Sept. 18, 2010 in Grants Pass @ a local park.
    Favorite thing about OR? How diverse it is in climates, people and political views. The Willamette Valley tends toward liberal (which I sorely miss) and the rest of Oregon is fairly conservative. Plus, I can be at the beach in an hour or so; big city in two (Eugene) or medium one (Medford) in under 30 minutes. 
    Least favorite thing about OR? August in Grants Pass. The heat about does me in when its 105 (or more) for three weeks solid. Thank god my 12-year-old car died in January. It didn't have A/C. My new ride does!! I'm ready to live through August now. :)

    Snarks- I absoutely LOVE my job.  I went to western culinary insitute right after I graduated from high school. I got my degree in patisserie and baking, and for the meantime, I work at the MOC.  Eventually I'd like to own my own bakery, but that'll be a while yet. 

    To answer your question, I AM baking my cake, but not decorating it, becuase I'm such a perfectionist I don't want to be stressing about that when I know I'll be worrying about 10,000,000 other things.  Luckily, one of my lovely co-workers offered to deco it for me, for free!  Yaaay for connections.

    Job? "Office Bitch" errr I mean... Customer Service Extraordinaire! for a same day rush courier
    Wedding date/location? September 25th, 2010 at the North Star Ballroom in Portland.
    Favorite thing about OR? Portland
    Least favorite thing about OR? the city of Rogue River

    Although Southern Oregon is absolutely gorgeous, I really hate it.  Granted, I haven't been there since I was in high school, but I spent the first two years of high school in Rogue River and was ridiculed for being different.. which leads me to why I LOOOOVEE Portland.  I have piercings and tattooes and I dance and sing in my car and it doesn't matter if I'm wearing a nascar tshirt with a plaid skirt, no one blinks twice at me.  I love this town, and I'm eternally grateful my parents moved us up here in the middle of HS.  I've tried leaving, but I always come back home.  The people in this town are amazing.

    Wedding Date/Location: August 2nd, 2010 at the Eugene Yacht Club
    Favorite thing about Oregon: The landscape - waterfalls, ocean, mountains - it's gorgeous. As someone who is originally from Illinois, I am in heaven.
    Least favorite thing about Oregon: The slugs. Sweet lord, they are huge and gross and slimy and really, really huge.
  • edited December 2011
    Colleen.. I'm with you on the slugs.. they are disgusting.  Especially the gigantic banana slugs found in the woods.  Where in Illinois are you from originally?  My family is from Carbondale.

    <div>LOL ... Would you ever think (before moving here that is) that some city would ever celebrate them? The Slugfest in September was such fun but at the same time - so weird when I lived in Eugene to go to UofO!</div>

    Kareneweigel-

    I'm from Edwardsville up near St. Louis but my mom currently lives about 30 minutes outside of Carbondale in Cobden. Small, small town. I do believe it has a grocery store.

    And yes, it's the banana slugs I am thinking of. I have actually slipped and fallen because I stepped on one. It was so big, it didn't even squish really. Pleasant thoughts, I know.

    oh God... please tell me you were wearing shoes...

    Well, I'm a little late on this one, but what the hell:

    Name: Ashlee-Dawn
    Job: College Student/Sales Associate at Victoria's Secret (I know you all need some lingirie for after that wedding so come see me at Clackamas Town Center if you're in the Portland area, I'll hook you up)
    Wedding Date/Location: March 26, no idea where
    Favorite thing about Oregon: The fact that I live in a big city with tall buildings, yet a river runs through it. I can drive to the beach in 2 hours. I can drive to my beautiful home in the Willamette Valley/Wine Country in an hour and a half. It's green. We even have a desert.
    Least favorite thing about Oregon: Rain and gloomy days. I'm glad we have seasons, but I hate so many gloomy days!
