seattle surprises

You know what is one of my favorite things to do...surprising one of my best friends to the point she is so excited she cries. That really feels like a victory to me. Here is the back story. One of my old college roommates who lives in Seattle had a birthday this past week, so a group of us Portland ladies made the trek up to Seattle to stay with our other old roomie to throw a surprise birthday party for her. Well technically the birthday girl knew about the party...she just didn't know the four of us Portland ladies would be attending. 

Brittany, the birthday girl, is a big fan of her Saturday morning Step Class, so we arrived early to take the class with her and surprise her in there. Needless to say it was a success, because when she registered there were 4 familiar faces in the class she started to cry. #WINNING.  Also, side note. Step Class is a lot sweatier than I realized. That is some solid cardio for an hour. 

Anyways, the rest of the weekend was also a success. I always love being able to reunite with my old roomies and besties. 


















Cheers to my people!

Those colorful bowls. I need some of them in my life. And a shelf without a cupboard door to display them on accordingly. I could definitely get my cereal on with those.
