First off I would like to say I am so immensely blessed! God has blessed me with incredible friends and family..so special thanks goes out to Him..:)
So…my weekend in a nutshell (72 hours of fun):
One of my absolute favorite people in the world came to town and I got to hang out with her and 6 other lovely ladies. My wonderful friend Kirrin, bride to be, got us all together for an afternoon filled with delicious food (mmm…Irish Nachos) and dress shopping. After countless minutes of trying on dresses I walked away empty handed, but still had an awesome time playing dress up 🙂
Oh..and the fun doesn’t stop there..later that evening I got to catch up with friends and celebrate my friends’ 25th B-day with what I can only describe as a 70s/80s dance party, which if you know me I am a dancing fiend so I was all about showing off my “awesome” moves.
Alarm: 9 am…time to get rolling!
Meet the girls at 10:30…head off for a quick getaway to Seattle. Spent Saturday afternoon roaming around Public Market Center and Pike Street in general. Enjoyed the rainy weather (no sarcasm..I actually love the rain). Went site seeing a bit…window shopped…and all in all enjoyed getting out of dodge and hanging with friends.
Oh..I mustn’t forget to mention one of best parts of the day…I MEET MY UNCLE AND COUSIN!! 🙂 Two of the sweetest and most welcoming people I have met! I got to spend part of the evening cruising downtown Seattle and eating ice cream with family while catching up on life…glorious! Our time was cut short do in part to my poor planning (note to self…plan things in advance!).. though I am grateful for the time we had together..it felt like time spent amongst old friends..loved it. Again, thank you Jesus for such wonderful family 🙂
So to sum up the rest of my weekend…we spent the morning part of Sunday roaming around Seattle a little bit more..and the latter part of Sunday driving to Portland where I picked up my car and headed back to Eugene ( total hours spent in a car today 5.5). It’s now 11:49 and I’ve been home for roughly an hour and a half…I’m exhausted but overjoyed. SO much happened this weekend and I hope to expand on it later..but for now I must say goodnight!
ps…grammatical errors..I’ll get to em later. my eyes are too heavy to work right now.
