Kina Grannis at The Aladdin Theater


Posted on Sep 20, 2010

Last Friday, my sis-in-law, new bro-in-law, my husband and I all went to see Kina Grannis at the Aladdin Theater.  I only knew of Kina because my sis had used this song as her wedding song last month.  I'm always up for a show at the Aladdin Theater because it continues to be my favorite venue in Portland.   It has a comfortable feel in a gorgeous setting.  Everyone is always just so nice.  From the...

Work in Progress – Embroidery

Life has been extremely busy the past couple of months.  I've been having a great time doing lots of fun things.  I'm now slowly starting to return to normal life.  Thank goodness for fall!  With that, my focus is starting to return to my normal routine which includes crafting.  I'm working a present now that I'm hoping will be done in the next week or two.   I'm very much in...

Sometimes it's worth waiting 6 months for a project to happen....

Taking Trimet – PDX Bus App


Posted on Sep 14, 2010

Last Saturday I had a very jam packed day.  I had matinée tickets to Burn the Floor, MFNW tickets to see the Decemberists at Pioneer Courthouse Square and concerts at the Crystal Ballroom after that.  The bus was the only way this day was going to work.   I always use the PDX Bus app on my iPhone because it's extremely simple to use and is mind boggling accurate.  It's never been wrong...

Last week I went to Branch Whiskey Bar with Diana.  You can read about our adventures here.  It seems that whiskey keeps popping up in my life right now.  There is something just bad ass about the idea of drinking whiskey.  "It'll grow hair on your chest" –  It doesn't get much manlier than that.  This could possible be the very reason why I'm  drawn to it....
