Nate & Luisa bio picture
  • WE ARE…

    ... THE PERKES. We still consider ourselves newlyweds [we've been married for almost 5 years]. Our firstborn, Jace, is now 2 years old, and became a big brother when Sofia Rain joined our family in November 2012. We are from the East Coast [Luisa is from MA and Nate is from NH]. We are Bronco's Fans [We've lived in the Boise area for almost 5 years]. We are travelers. We are athletes and we are dancers. We are enthusiastic about food. We are spontaneous. We are addicted to the sun. We are in love.

    Most importantly... we are HAPPY. We are the Perkes.


Just one more 8 hour day and I’m home free! I had to have the car completely packed this morning before I came into work at 8. *Sigh* That was exhausting. But to say the least, I managed it with only one minor setback. I was walking to the car for probably the 8Oth time since last night, FOR the last time, with the final items: my heels for work, the keys, my greatly anticipated cup of cereal with the last of the milk, and the toilet bowl brush. I was trying to maneuver into the front seat, attempting to uncover the cup holders so I could put my cup of cereal there for safe keeping. And splash!! Everything was wet. I didn’t even want to know. But, yes. Oh yes. My toilet brush, in it’s accompanying holder had tipped over and had gotten everything drenched with toilet water, including… my heels, my keys, my cereal… my front seat. Everything except for me, by some miracle of the heavens. After a stressful morning, topped with some sleep deprivation, I typically would have had a break down, and just sat down in my puddle of misery, lamenting bitterly my lot in life. But today, I just got a bad case of the giggles. I found a bunch of anti-bacterial bleach wipes in our glove box and the bathroom rug/mat was the easiest thing to pry out from our packed car. I set that on the seat, and drove to work.

After all is said and done… I still ended up with a wet bum.
(The bathroom mat was still wet from my morning shower). : )
