bring it on home girl

For all my bitching about Portland during the rainy season, coming into the Sun-filled city is truly a delight. All of a sudden you're surrounded by a happier group and the city seems newer, refreshed and revived. I feel like a lot of people outside of the Pacific NW have no idea what Oregon is all about and what our downtown is like - make no mistake, Portland cityscape is wonderful and there's plenty to do.
Besides, how can I be sad it's the weekend!
On the agenda: Charity Banquet tonight (where I donate thousands of dollars dahhhhhhhhhlllinnng- jk) which means dresses, wine and art! Yes! Watching the Blazers proceed in the playoffs like the badasses that they are and Skiing on Mt. Hood again! Can't be too shabby! Oh, and it's Easter which will be a nice family dinner for me but not a whole she-bang.

Portland is awesome. I am so not a big City girl but if I had to move to a city?? Portland would be it, hands down.

Did I tell you that I worked one winter at Mt Hood and snowboarded the whole time? BEST TIME of my life :)

Never been to Portland, but I wanna go...
& Aldridge (#12) from the Blazers, so my future baby daddy.
Good game tonight.

Few days back I was watching an old movie(could not recall the name), it was shot in Oregon. I think the place looks awesome.
Anyway, its Good Friday. Have great Easter and a superb weekend, Cheers!!

<3 your city. And all the amazing food there :-) I was there in November...it was rainy when I was there, so I never saw sun, but it was beautiful nonetheless.

Have a good weekend!

I scrolled down your blog just now and my eye caught this :- "{this is another reason why my blog is not just a fashion blog. I look really stupid modeling clothes, haha.}" Now that is such a big lie Caitlin. You look fabulous, and I will go so far as to say you are one of the most elegant and stylish bloggers I know. And I know not only two or three....
You always look so stunning, love the way you dress, I think loads of bloggers can learn a whole heap from you. So please keep up the good work, you are an excellent example of a truly well dressed fashionista. Don't sell yourself short. :)

Keep up the good work and keep on modeling your outfits.

Enjoy your Easter weekend.
Colin.
