This last weekend I headed down to Portland for a fun weekend away with my friends Katilin and Nicole! The sun was out when we left Seattle so our drive down was gorgeous as could be. The drive was full of games of 20 Questions, junk food pit stops, gorgeous scenery, and one awesomely named espresso stand.
Upon arriving in Portland, we headed straight to West Elm for a textile stamping workshop hosted by Heather of Aspen Summit and Andrea of The Girls Fort. Both Heather and Andrea were sweet as could be, and we all had a blast following their tutorials to make our own homemade stamps! I ended up making a cute little apple stamp, which I used to make a tea towel, and a bow stamp that I used on my tote! To top the whole lovely event off, we all received a goodie bag filled with the prettiest little things. It was a blast!
We spent the rest of the day wandering around, shopping, eating awesome food, and then, admittedly, getting some much needed rest.
The next day was all about the cat show. Seriously. We went to the Portland International Cat Show and it was one of the cutest, most hilarious experiences I had ever had. My heart was so bursting with cuteness that I wasn't sure I would make it out alive!
After an hour or two squealing, we left the cat show, hit up a darling gluten free bakery and headed home. Our ride home was just as gorgeous as the ride down, and filled with just as much junk food. We stopped for more (obvs) somewhere in southern Washington and happened upon the prettiest gas station ever with an amazing view of Mt. St. Helens. We spent the rest of the trip playing 20 Questions and Six Degrees of Separation, and making ourselves sick on cheddar popcorn and gummy bears.
It was an awesome weekend spent with wonderful people, and I was so happy to have the adventure.
Did you guys get up to anything over the weekend?
