Lots of Work and lots of Play makes Caitlin a Bad Blogger

... ok, so where does the time go? This was my previous week (hence my absence!)

Wednesday Night: Book Club

Thursday Night:

Christmas decorating

Friday Night: Christmas Party Charity Event

Saturday: Travelled to the Oregon coast for a birthday party...

Sunday Night: Back from the Oregon Coast and had my 8th Annual Girls' Holiday Party which lasted well... into the night....

My good, hilarious friend Juan and Me on 12.11 (above)

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday: Big preparation for another professional endeavor which my conscience insisted that all free time had to be utilized studying for it... and not Blogging. That dern' conscience!

Where did the Blogging time go??

But now with the Deadline passed... I'm FREE AS A BIRD to Blog again! Yay! :) So... first I need sleep... so here will be my lameo post that I can muster tonight with a few shots from my Friday night Charity function and my trip to the OR Coast on Saturday:

One of my Best Friends Megan and Me- post Charity event (below)

The Boy and Me after Midnight when the Carriage turned into a Pumpkin (below)

One of my dear friends Juan, at the Charity event raising $/Toys for Doernbecher Children's Hospital . I think he looks like a Mexican version of Jerry Seinfeld - so he says he's "Seinfeld- En Espanol!" He's hilarious. (below)

Some funny boys and Me at the event (below)

Megan and Me again - I was having fun with Red lips and Black hair flower (below)

On to Saturday...Me, Megan and Meagan (2 of 'em!) at a Pitstop in Washington on the way to the Coast... we decided to take the long route...(below)

Meagan, Me and Megan at a divey pit stop in rural Washington (below)
Who doesn't love a pit stop at a place like that on a Road Trip? So fabulous to find little podunk places to stop for a drink and a view! Really doesn't get much better...(below)
The View {truly} from our Hotel room in Astoria, OR (below)
Oh, how I love the Coastline in Oregon , amazing Barge! (below)
Dinner in Astoria in a Private room- don't mind if we do :) (below)
I reminded myself of a cross between Madonna and Tommy Lee this night- not a great combo haha. (below)
Some of the gals at the Hotel room in Astoria (below)

Great post! I forgot what a joy it is to read up on your everyday happenings!

I was confused however, about halfway through this post, why the text got bigger and much more cumbersome to read? (Specifically when you are discussing red lipstick and a black bow in your hair, which is just darling!)

Is there any reason you went through Washington to get to the Oregon Coast? Aren't you in Portland? How bizarre! Looks like you and your girls had fun though.

Sharon Lei said...

Me and the hubbs visited OR a few years back. I think in 2004. Our friend lived in Wilsonville, but we made it to the coast for the weekend and it was great! I loved every bit of it.. We were going to try clamming, but that didn't happened, not sure why!! But I'd love to visit there again...

Love & Aloha, Sharon

***enter my giveaway if you haven't already!!** :)
