Oregon Adventures--Part 2

The rest of my trip was full of fun and girl time. We managed to cram lots of fun things into my 7 day visit. I crossed most things off of my Oregon to do list, the things I don't want to miss when I visit...the coast, Wild Pear, Busick Court for pancakes, Java frosties from Java Crew...the only one of my usual places I missed was Tidal Raves, which is apparently not as good as it used to be....

Saturday included lunch at Wild Pear and some shopping at Ma Valise and Arbor in Salem, up to Portland for Noah's Bagels, Ikea, margaritas and the airport for Andrea and Matt. Here Jessie with a watermelon margarita...the girl doesn't much care for Watermelon, but throw a little alcohol in there and apparently she's all smiles!

Sunday included my favorite apple walnut pancakes at Busick Court, shopping, pedicures, Starbucks, rented movies, mojitos and dinner on the patio, ice cream sandwiches, wine....could a day be any better?

Monday was wine tasting day for me and Jessie and we spent the afternoon in Dundee, OR visiting Sokol Blosser, Erath and Argyle. We drove to a couple more, but alas, they were not open on Mondays! Here's the view from Sokol Blosser, which was probably the prettiest winery of the day.

We took lots of pictures here, including several silly shots of each other and a few self portraits.

On our way home we stopped for milkshakes and finished off our evening with dinner at Red Robin with Jessie's birthday coupon and more movie watching.

Tuesday was crafty day. First we hit the scrapbook store to spend Jessie's gift certificate, than we headed to Silverton to Jessie's favorite knitting store the Purl District. Silverton is a cute little town with cool old buildings, pretty houses and hanging flower baskets everywhere.

After some crafty time at Jessie's house we headed to Corvallis to hang with Nicole. We had pizza and drinks at American Dream, yummy gelato next door and back to Nicole's for a little mini book project.

Wednesday was sadly my last day with Jessie. We spent the day hanging out together, eating lunch and drinking wine outside and shopping in Portland before heading to the airport. I won't be moving back to Oregon anytime soon, but I sure do miss hanging out with Jessie and Nicole and wish we had more time together.

Hmmm, apparently I've had a bit too much tea this morning as I can't type ... I really meant "just" not "jut" and "theme" not "them" ... hopefully you can see past my intoxicated post :P.
