Things I Wanna Do In Portland

My hiatus from blogging has been unintended and I will admit it's due to the amazing weather we've been having. Truth be told, by the end of the Summer I'll be done and tired of the endless days of hot sun, so you can be sure I'll be back.

That being said, I do plan on blogging quite a bit in the next couple weeks. Lucas and I are traveling to Portland (Home) to see family and friends. Wahoo! Here are a few things I want to do while I'm out there:

  • Celebrate my sister's 30th birthday with a day of wine tasting!
  • See the joy on Lucas' grandparents' faces when they play and snuggle with him... because quite frankly, he's darling.
  • See the Ocean... in all it's Northwestern splendor... which probably means cold and rainy. But I'll take it. For sure.
  • Photo Bombing... which I should tell you is the funniest thing to me. I know... totally juvenile, but hilarious! And... can only be done with special people... like my sister... and Rashelle... and with a couple drinks in my system.
  • Hit up the Oregon Aquarium. Because... I've never been to the new one! Wha!? I know... it's gonna happen people... or someone might get hurt.
  • Drink wine with Rashelle. A must.
  • Pet my friend Kenna's adorable baby belly. Yes... I'm THAT girl. And yes, I WILL pet your baby belly. Thank goodness Kenna is cool. She'll probably laugh. I'm down with that.
  • See my friend Lindsay get hitched! Hooray!
  • Hit up Beaverton Farmer's Market and eat some of those radical crepes. Yes, I said radical... 
  • See some lovelies at Lucas' early birthday party. I can't wait!
  • Hug our family... a lot.
  • Visit the Oregon Zoo. And check out those adorable polar bears!
  • Hug my friend Kerry and tell her "I can't believe you're having a baby!" Because seriously... I can't believe she's having a baby. This family of hers is like a second family for me and I couldn't be happier that this event is happening for all of them.
  • Miss my husband... because distance DOES make the heart grow fonder. And I know after just one week away, I will be so very excited to come home to his warm hugs and witty humor.
This seems like a lot... but with three weeks I can accomplish this and more. I'm hoping to see more friends than I anticipate and express to them how much I've missed them. I'm hoping to have such sweet moments with the people I love, it'll carry me through to months we have to be separate again. But I can't think about leaving yet... because I'll cry.


  1. Maybe we could tag along on your zoo trip... I've been meaning to take Miss Katie and haven't gotten around to it yet. Plus it would be great to see you. :)

  2. photo bombing? I need to hear about this...
