A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!

Friends, Yarn and the Atlantis Hotel

Going down to southern Ca. was really a last minute trip. So much that I had forgot to write about here until later which can be seen in my previous post. Since I was not planning on even posting for the few days I was gone, I was not using that thought process. However I never leave home without my camera and for most days took pictures. So I thought I would go ahead and post what happened in my life these last ten days (or close to it) even though I was not in Lassen County.

My girlfriend Elizabeth drove me to Reno Nevada late Saturday night and we had a room at the Atlantis Hotel. The next day November 30th we walked across the street to Joannes, a yarn store and did a bit of yarn shopping. We are both avid lovers of crochet and it was quite nice to go there (Joannes) with someone that has the same passion. When we walked in I tried to take some pictures of this beautiful fountain and for the most part I was unable to capture it the way I wanted.

However it was much more simple when you add a true friend in the picture. So this is Elizabeth with her beautiful smile. Kinda makes you forget about the fountain. Her husband Robert was in the room while we enjoyed girl time.

Then a cocktail waitress walked by and asked if I would like her to take a picture of the both of us. Of course I said yes. She snapped this picture and got away from me so quick I could not even get her name yet alone tip her like I would have liked to had done.

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
