Where has this week gone? I’ll tell you where. EVERYWHERE.
My grandparents bought an RV a few years ago and make one awesome trip every year to see the country on the road. They were up in Montana at Glacier National Park last week when an avalanche plowed into their plans. So, they redirected to my new stomping grounds for a few days.
Company left Tuesday morning and we have barely unpacked. Boxes are everywhere. But we hurried ourselves after work to pick them up and take them to dinner. G&G got to meet John, see downtown Portland at dusk and eat delicious food from Ned Ludd— a fully organic farm to table dining experience. Very Portland. You feel like you are eating in the middle of Anthropologie. Ladies, can I get an amen???
We stayed out late and I had to be in Washington at the crack so an early morning run was out of the question…again. I spent the day with 6th graders in Longview for Outdoor School. It was a good change of scenery to get out of the office and hang out with kids among the Douglas Firs.
Last night I took them to a Ringside (a super fine steak house), per their request. Don’t worry, I didn’t object. We had a blast. It is so fun to talk to your grandparents as an adult. They ask all the right questions and beam with pride when hearing your accomplishments. I squeezed their necks, thanked them for the millionth time, and made a teary-eyed exit without them knowing. Geez, I hope they come back soon.
I couldn’t go home yet, could I? Noway. My supper club was meeting and I couldn’t handle not making it, even if it was just for dessert! The night ended with so much laughter my abs hurt this morning. I love those girls.
Tonight is Bunco at Sally’s and a late night trip to the airport to pick up Samantha. But before all of that, this girl needs a good solo run to regroup.
PS: Many of you have asked about the move so here’s a sneak peak of the kitchen!
