blogger date

So does it make me a real blogger if I not only met up with a fellow blogger, but she came to visit from a different state? Does this mean we are going steady now? Kailyn came to visit on Friday and Portland was extra nice and didn't even rain for her. Although, I think she was secretly a little bummed she couldn't wear her new Hunter Boots. I don't blame her.

Anyway, we did typical touristy things, including nom on some Voodoo Doughnuts and Lardo.  Hit up Pittock Mansion which had fabulous views of Mount Hood and Mount St. Helens. Saturday we trekked up to Hood River. The Gorge was beautiful as usual, as was Multnomah Falls, and  we even played in over 100 mile per hour winds at Vista House. That wind was no joke. You should have seen Bradley chasing down my sun glasses and Kailyn's beanie in the parking lot. 






Moral of the story, I am a great host, so you should probably book your ticket to visit me.

Cheers!

Elle Sees said...

wow!! this looks AMAZINGGGG.
i want a blate and a trip up there! i went once mannnyyy years ago and didn't have nearly as much fun.

Alyson said...

Please, don't even tempt me! I took that Buzzfeed quiz the other day on what city I should be living in and naturally it said I should be in Portland. Not in the least bit surprised. I have been dreaming of a reason to go back, so if making my first blate the excuse, then so be it. Just don't say I didn't warn you...

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

Holy amazingness. I am so glad that you two are going steady now! Official blogging besties :)

Also, you have the most adorable smile. And I mean that in the most non-creeper way.

Bad Luck Jenn said...
