Got my Oregon license today, finally. I've been here for a little over 13 months without changing back from my Minnesota license. I filled out the application at home before we left so I wouldn't have to wait and fill it out there, so that cut down my time considerably, and I brought my old Oregon license and plenty of information so I could get out of there quickly. The lady behind the counter noticed that my old Oregon licence would have been good until 2004, so she changed everything over and I didn't have to take the test!

Then, after we changed the insurance information at the State Farm down the street, I took the car to the DEQ and got my emissions certificate, and he checked out the VIN for me too, so I didn't have to go back to the DMV like I thought I'd have to. And then I decided to be lazy for the rest of the day and skipped out on work and played around at home, moving things around and straightening up, and taking Cory to Office Depot and Petco and Starbucks. I missed driving!!! I need friends to hang out with now that I can drive. :)

Maybe this weekend I'll go to Redmond and see the family/help Haley move back into the dorms. That oughta get driving out of my blood for awhile.

Someone come make me dinner.

I wish I could come make you dinner, but it's a little too far for me... Sorry! =o) You should try "okonomiyaki" (see my journal for a description) someday! It's really easy and quick to make if you can find the ingredients...
That's great that you didn't have to take the driving test. If I get a Japanese license I will definitely have to take a driving test because they drive on the other side of the road here. It's taken a while to get used to it, but I think I could do it now.
And, your picnic shelter looks great. If you strung up lights that had cool things on them, then they would be seen easier during the day (for example red chile peppers, not that you want chile peppers at your wedding, but I think you get my drift), but otherwise, I'm not sure what you could do. Maybe a flower garland or ribbons, although those could get too cheesy if they get out of hand. You probably want something of a color that sticks out from all of the greenery in the trees, bushes and grass.

I had been planning on having greenish skirts on the bridesmaids, and didn't even think that it would either clash or blend in with all the greenery outside. Silly me. So, instead, I'll probably use something pinker. I don't quite know what yet, though.
