Here's the photo you've been waiting for, Allison - me in the Mean-Eyed Cat hoodie! Like the way I've got the Mean Eye too? I was so grateful for this sweatshirt this weekend.
We hit the road for Portland a little after 6, with lattes in hand. That turned out to be a mistake for me, since a little mishap in the car led to my spilling a full latte all over my coat, down the front of my jeans and all over the back of Kirstin's car. It was a measure of our mood that mostly this just led to a lot of laughing, and a fifteen minute detour to a gas station where Rachel helped me sop up all that milk. I am hoping that Kirstin won't be cursing my name as she drives around this week, smelling the after effects. The coat smelled awful and was totally stiff when it finally dried, so I spent last night walking around Portland in my hoodie and little green leather coat. Luckily we were in taxis most of the time, and there were those warming beverages I had as well, so it all worked out okay.
More on the PDX adventures later. We had a ridiculously good time. If you haven't been out with your girlfriends in a while, plan something now! Something involving music that none of the men in your lives will listen to, and outfits you are not really sure you should wear out in public. Hats, wigs and sunglasses are optional, but they really do add a certain something.
