one way ticket, yeah

It would be harder to envision a better weekend than the one I just had. The main component to my happiness: the sun. It was blazing this weekend (well, 'blazing' by April's standards) with Saturday in the late 70s and Sunday reaching 80 degrees. I am proud to say that I did not touch my car once after parking it Friday evening and rather walked, walked, street trolley, walked and walked all over downtown all day, every day.


{^Spending a hot Saturday on a rooftop balcony with your friends at Departure? Doesn't get better- except for the fact that we had been walking around since 10 AM so our outfits weren't exactly 'Cocktail Hour' vibe... oh well.}


{^Oregonians know how to enjoy a beautiful day- that is a fact of life}


{^Sushi feast on Sunday. I will think of this all week while I'm eating my bananas and protein shakes.}


{^Handsome dining companion to take in the 80-degree day}


{^Finding random downtown spots to practice what I've been learning at my Photography classes.}


{^Attended a charity event on Friday that my Dad is heavily involved in. More on this later but pictured left to right is my Cousin, Dad & Stepmom at our table.}


{^April showers bring April flowers}

{^Champagne for my campaign}


{^Since I sadly don't have a pet or child with whom I could shove my camera in their face ... the boy is my preferred subject as I practice photography.}

So ahhhhh, Monday could not be anymore annoying than it is right now. But- despite the fact that the work week means no champagne, no fancy dinners, no walking around for hours on foot... I've still got high spirits. Mainly because on Friday- I purchased a ticket to Las Vegas for June. Girls' trip?? Yes, please! I can hardly stand how excited I am. I guess knowing I will soon be buying 18 dollar yardstick margaritas makes working a little bit more relevant.

How was your weekend??

Given I worked almost all weekend, I'm very jealous of yours! It looks like so much fun.
I don't actually like Vegas (yep I know, somethings not quite right with me!) but your upcoming girls trip there still sounds fun and it's so important to have something awesome to look forward to.

Erika said...

Ah, your weekend looks (and sounds) positively glorious, Caitlin! You always look so stunning! :)

I needed someone enjoying 80 degree sun. It was 39 windy and rainy here on the east coast yesterday.

I am exciting for u and the upcoming trip. I'll warn local law enforcement in advance about your crew arriving...

Rooftop balconies and champagne sound pretty good to me!

P.S. That sushi looks delicious. Now I want some tonight!! YUM :)

It sounds and looks like you had a wonderful weekend! I wish mine was half as relaxing as yours. Soon enough!

Looks like you had a great time....crazy jealous of your weather. Pittsburgh went back to winter this weekend. It's depressing. Hope Vegas is awesome, but we'll be talking more before you leave. :)

Oh my gosh, how I relate to this. Although I've been terribly busy, the weekends have been sunny and beautiful, which has made Mondays all the more brutal. Funny how you said your outfits weren't "cocktail hour" ish in that first pic, cause as soon as I saw it, I thought "they all look so cute!" I love the colors in your dress & the casualness of the t-shirt dress (?) and sunnies on the girl on the right--so cute!
