Bursting with BLISS

Yesterday Helga and I finally had the chance to meet up with Bella from The Citizen Rosebud. She is an absolute gem of a person, kind, intelligent and absolutely beautiful.  She gave me the prettiest dress and necklace too which I will model for you later, my head is still spinning from yesterday.
 This is the lobby of the Hotel they stayed in, next we were off to shop.  No typical tourist crap here :)
 Load it up ladies!!
 Yum!
 Oh-la-la!
 Yes I did lay my had upon the girls and they were BOOBILICIOUS!
All that shopping really made us hungry and thirsty.  I got to take the gang to the Observatory, a favorite place of mine.  It was delicious!

 G is so sweet, he has really been enjoying all the micro brew Portland has to offer.
 Shocking really!
 A little more shopping.....



and then we headed back to my place for an evening of hanging out.  I'll share those pictures with you tomorrow.

I am forever grateful at this wonderful blogging community of women, I want to meet as many of you as I possibly can, we are a rare breed!

I'd recognize a Value Village tag at 100 paces! Looks like you gals had so much fun. I can imagine the awkwardness of meeting the real person behind the photos and text of a blog but also imagine the instant recognition of something deeper. Very cool head trip! I'm glad you guys had the chance to meet up.

So much fun with the beautiful ladies!! You guys look gorgeous in your dresses. I bet you really shook that lobby! It's amazing the bonding that goes on on these style blogs. Women just love to nurture each other in this way. I'm thrilled to be a part of it.
By the way, your tat sleeves are awesome!!

Thank you do much for all you did to create such a great day! I'm so happy to meet you- I felt an instant repoire with you and it seems we've known Helga and G for years. Squeeeesee!

So fun to hang out and share stories, not to mention the shopping and food. Well, I'm always open to adventure and Krista I do get to Portland from time to time. We'll have to see if we can't fit in a get together, and if you are ever in Southern Oregon let me know. So, keep on rockin' it, love.

Fancy getting to fondle Helga's booboids after all this time, they are one of the seven wonders of blogland!
Value Village and the micro brewery look brilliant but not as fabulous as you, Helga, Bella & G!
Can't wait for part two!
