I have had two great weekends in a row!!!
The 10th, 11th, and 12th my friend came in from out of town to visit before I move (ill post about that later) and it was sooo good to see her! I hadn’t seen her since our graduation, which was May of 2013.
Thursday night we stayed up talking and catching up until 2 am!!! (11pm is now a late night for me hahahaha). Friday i got us up at 5:30am to go to crossfit, then we went for a 4 mile walk in the park.
We took the MAX into Portland where i showed her my favorite place: Powell’s Books. This is a book nerd’s heaven on earth, we even went into the rare book room!!!!!! We got voodoo donuts which is a Portland must, not that i really understand the craze, they are just donuts.
but they are shaped funny hahaha!
then we got a delicious lunch and headed back toward home. stopped at the local farmers market then went home and watched movies.
Saturday Morning we watched movies and said goodbye, she had to get home by early to work a double on Sunday.
Then this past weekend Brandy and i went to the coast on a trip i won at the company Christmas Party……omg it was sooo nice!!
this was the view from our HUGE balcony.
The room was beautiful
we ate clam chowder each of the 3 days we were there hahaha. Saturday we went for a run/walk on the beach and checked out the tide pools then walked into town to an adorable coffee shop for lunch
we explored town a bit, got a little culture from the local museum and some pretty earrings from a glass shop. then went back to the room and napped hahaha.
its blurry but i dressed up a smidge for dinner……then stuffed my face with a pound of Alaskan King crab legs :)
we hit brunch Sunday morning and stuffed ourselves again then drove home.
All in all both weekends were great, there is something renewing and good for the soul about spending time with great friends.
True friends are like family, you may have your ups and downs and good times and bad, but once they are in your life, they are in your life forever.
Have you done something fun with your friends lately?
