This was our theme song for the weekend. Play it while you read the post, then maybe you can feel like you were there with us and my ramblings won't seem so crazy!
So this blog post has very little to do with running- but if you are interested in how to have an amazing girl weekend that involves a lot of laughing, chatting, walking and consuming of delicious food than look no further!
My girlfriends and I have been planning this "girl trip" for several months now and between all of our crazy schedules we settled on October 19th-21st in Portland. So we booked a hotel right downtown and decided to have one dressy go out night and then do a lot of shopping/eating/walking the rest of the time. It was perfect.

*Breakfast- Mother's Bistro (http://www.mothersbistro.com/) -we waited a very long time for a table on Saturday but it was worth it. I had pumpkin pancakes and chicken sausage links and a Bloody Mary (which was really, really good). The girls all enjoyed their food as well, no complaints other than the long wait. Eat here and make your belly happy.
*Shopping- The Portland open market on Saturday was really nice. It is HUGE and has a lot of neat things to buy. I almost bought a duck tape wallet, but I did buy peacock earrings and some warm gloves that I LOVE. Also- go to Powell's book store. It is an independently owned bookstore that fills an entire city block (there are maps available!). I could have spent the day there. http://www.powells.com/

|My dinner at the Heathman. Halibut, leeks and fingerling potatoes.|
|The cast of the Darcelle show. I think the lady with the legs must be a runner!|
|We may have re-enacted a little Gangnam Style in our elevator|
|Almost but not quite the same...|
|I was laughing so hard that I was crying here. Good times with some silly friends. |
I recommend bringing a friend with a long arm -thanks Jaime!! Push the button!
