It's Monday, Already?!

Sometimes you have those weekends that drag, then sometimes you have those weekends that FLY.

This weekend we  flew :-)

Friday was a zoo.  I've decided I'm never hosting an "Ice Cream Friday" day at work solo ever again.  I can't tell you how many times I wanted to put my sassy pants on and tell people to be thankful they were getting ice cream.

Straight from work I headed to a bloggy date with Brooke, Jessi, Laura, Jane, and Rachel at Saucebox in Portland.  By the way - they have an AMAZING happy hour.  My bill was $10.  $10!!  I'll be back.  But I had a wonderful time and the conversation was so easy!  The creepy thing with blog friends is you already know about each other.  So the conversation starts like this, "Hi it's so nice to meet you!  By the way I love the pictures of your apartment." 
Not creepy? 
It's a bloggy thing.

After the bloggy date I picked up Aaron from home and we got more food (because that's what weekends are for - gaining back the weight you lost during the week - duh) and went to Powell's because I NEEDED my new Portland 2014 Events calendar.  Guys - if you live near PDX you NEED this calendar.  I lovelovelove my 2013 calendar and demanded to have the 2014 version:-)

Saturday Aaron and I slept in, spent the entire day together, and headed to a party with some friends.  To be totally honest, whenever I'm doing anything with that fiance of mine I am totally head over heels in love.  Too mushy? 

We also made an Ikea run to pick up some things.  I don't know who thought it was a good idea for us to live 15 minutes within an Ikea, but I'm pretty sure we've single handedly ensured all their employees will receive Holiday Bonus' this year.   We brought the Polly pup so we could show off her new Lumber Jackie hat!  Turns out dogs aren't allowed in Ikea, but we didn't find out till we were leaving

;-)  Shucks.  Plus - she's not really a dog - she's more like a little human. 

We seriously have problems.

And lastly, have you voted for the World's most adorable baby in the Gerber baby contest yet?  If you have a few extra minutes, show a fellow blogger some love and vote for Courtney's adorable little Mia (Entry ID 249510).
