How are my five days at home already over!? I’m not complaining about going on vacation again this weekend, but holy jeez – that time slipped by fast. After attending my boss’ wedding last weekend (which was so unbelievably beautiful), Sunday was basically a full day of travel for me. We drove from Kingston to Toronto (3 hours), then I had an hour or so to relax at Roomie’s before I flew home to Vancouver (5 hours). Unfortunately, the flight was delayed and I didn’t get home until almost 1:30 on Monday morning. I don’t usually experience jet lag coming back this way, but I feel like I’ve been trying to catch up on sleep ever since.
But now the weekend is here! And it’s going to be oh so fun. My friend Kasey and I are taking the afternoon off, so we can start our road trip to Portland a little early. Thanks to everyone who has offered us amazing restaurant suggestions, we’ve basically mapped out our entire weekend around where we want to eat. Tonight, we’re going to grab Thai from Pok Pok, followed by ice cream at Salt & Straw. We’re staying at a hotel downtown, so we’ll grab brunch and coffee down there tomorrow morning, before we start to explore… and yes, I’ll be on the lookout for Flanders Street! I’m also attending Kathleen’s wedding, this weekend, which the weather gods seem to have prepared for.
If there’s anything else we must do or see, please tell us now! xo
The high of my week was having dinner (more like a sushi feast!) and brainstorming with Sarah on Monday night. It’s also the only thing I did this week, other than go to a few appointments, lol.
A blog post I loved was How to Pick Your Life Partner. I don’t usually read posts like this, but all these weddings have filled me with the love bug. Part 1 was kind of funny and Part 2 was both honest and sweet. All my married and soon-to-be married friends should at least give Part 2 a read. You won’t regret it.
The best money I spent was $30 on an appointment with my massage therapist. After four weeks of sitting in cars, planes, etc. my body was in bad shape. It was a painful appointment, but so worth it.
My plans this weekend include driving to Portland today, exploring and eating my way through it all weekend, attending Kathleen’s wedding on Sunday then driving home Monday afternoon. Then I’ll be unpacking/repacking and heading to New Orleans on Wednesday for FinCon. Will I see you there!?
How was your week, friends? What are you up to this weekend?
