Where in the World is Candyfloss&Persie?

Details of my life have been omitted lately because of my stupid, broken laptop...

However, I would like to show a bit of what I have been doing lately...

First: I kicked off Festin' Season with my girls.

{Seafood & Crab Festival-I'm faceless, hamming it up on the Right.}

"Festin'" is a term coined by my fellow fest-lover, Miranda. After a highly successful weekend at the Oregon Brew Fest a few years back, we discovered how much we adore places that serve you an abundance of quality food, quality drink, quality socializing and something a bit different than the bars. We've been a fan ever since and try to hit up local ones when we can. Not to mention you get to talk with Vendors face to face AND you get free Wine Glasses or Mugs with every Fest. My collection of Glassware with an event label is growing and I couldn't be happier.

{Wine & Cheese Festival- I'm on the Right again in my BCBG}

At the Wine/Cheese fest, I finally wore my BCBGMAXAZARIA Ruffled, Halter Blouse! I have tried to wear this for so long but always ended up changing my mind. I love it! It reminds me of a blend of Benjamin Franklin WITH Goldie Hawn circa 1975. :)

{Via Nordstrom.com retails $146 but now I believe it has trickled to The Rack. I paired mine with 7 Jeans but I think this would be dynamite dressed up for work under a cardigan and paired with a pencil skirt and colorful shoes}

Also at the Wine&Cheese Festival I got to meet... (DRUM ROLL)... Oregon's own Amy Roloff of Little People Big World!

{When is the right time to tell her I want to date one of her sons?}

I was super excited. I have already met every other member of the family so I was so happy to finally meet her. She was gracious, funny and super nice.

Beyond that... I've been making time for friends and being 25.

And as mentioned in yesterday's post, I spent my Valentine's Day at the Zoo with The Boy. I am animal obsessed and love going to the Zoo. However, rarely will someone be so kind as to take me. It was a wonderful treat to spend the day roaming the grounds and seeing all sorts of adorable creatures.

{Goats are kind of my favorite. Mainly because they are so weird and do things like this.}

{New Baby Elephant at the Oregon Zoo! and on the Right, Hippo Butt. Too cute.}

Afterward... we were tired and lounged at his apartment while he made us Dinner.

{Grey Shirts and Hooded Sweatshirts are my Go-To lounge clothes. PS- He has roommates who are the owners of those beers. No we didn't spend our Valentine's Day chugging Rainers and Bud Light :) }

So, that's that! Um, by the way, I have been watching NYC Fashion Week and been OBSESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSED with certain looks that I shall post about tomorrow. It's off to bed for me! Just thought I'd show that I am not eDead- just a bit technologically challenged right now.
