This whole weekend was amazing. Here is the first part of it:
Friday was wonderful! The heat and humidity was a reminder of the sweaty Florida summer quickly approaching… but regardless, it was nice: sunny with a warm breeze. Marlowe and I went to Starbucks to meet up Kristine. We usually also meet up with Anita, but with it being her birthday and all she had a lovely day of pampering 🙂 That evening was great. The weather was gorgeous &friends gathered early at the wine bar. Eric and I were only able to meet up later in the night after Miss Marlowe was fed and happy with Heidi 🙂 &since we were only two blocks away I would be able to run back if Marlowe needed anymore feedings or whatever. We ended up spending a bit of time at the wine bar (I was wine-less) before heading to Propaganda to see friend’s bands (New Coke & Yellow #6) play. One of the best parts of the night: Propaganda was smoke-free! I’m not sure who requested a smoke-free night, but it was so nice to be able to breathe! Kristine was able to come out and we were all able to hang out without a cloud of smoke above us. Yep, definitely a good night out with friends.

  2. Shut Up! Mall MAddness! hahah love it!

    Also in VA pretty much all restaurants and bars are now smoke free. It's so nice to be able to breath and leave not smelling like an ashtray!

    Looks like a fabulous day to me!

  3. looks like a great time. i hate the small of smoke and to be around smoke also. nothing worst than coming home with your clothes stinking of something you don't even smoke! yuck!

    i know you miss your long hair sometimes but seriously, your hair looks AWESOME!!!!!

    p.s.- it is getting very hot too soon

  4. I love all the pictures!
    Also, all indoor space in Oregon is smoke free. I love going out to shows and for drinks without the smoke. I need to remind myself to appreciate this as it isn't that way everywhere.
