The Big Two - One!


My little girl, Brittany Rose slide into this world 21 years ago yesterday. She's grown up into quite a lovely young lady, intelligent and sweet, a mommy now herself. We decided to just have a girls day, so headed over to Portland for a little bit of shopping. Brittany had never been in Powell Books and since we all devour books at an alarming rate, (well, except for Dustin. He has better things to do!), we made this our first stop. Silly girls, what were you thinking?! If you make the bookstore your first stop, you have to carry those books around the rest of the day. We emerged back onto the street loaded down with some fun stuff, including a Dr. Suess for Noah. Next stop lunch, then on to Anthropologie. A quick look at the watch told us that the parking meter was ticking away...


Just enough time for a quick stop at Cupcake Joe's for a little bit of cupcake magic to be savoured in the park. Heavenly!

Brittany doesn't drink, doesn't party. I offered to take her out for a drink anyway, but, nope, not interested. Good. Me either. Lets go home....

Happy Birthday, B!

Happy birthday Brittany.

I love Powell Books. We went there on our vacation last summer. Even DH, who is not much of a reader, found some books he likes.

Happy B-day to Brittany! Looks like a very fun day for both of you. I could spend hours in a book store.
