Here are a few photos from my recent trip to Portland, OR.  I’ll let the pretty speak for itself.  I was on happy endorphin overload the entire time.  The best part?  I’m going back this week.  HOORAY!!

Wizarding World Of Harry Potter

October 20, 2011

Holy smokes!  Before you know it a lifetime can go by and you haven’t blogged a single thing! Well these pictures are MUCH overdo but they deserve a post all to themselves.  My trip to Florida with Jamie to visit the Harry Potter theme park was magic.  I cried three times before I even got inside the HP part of the park.  It was just a dream come true.  Yea, so maybe my dreams are sometimes small BUT they’re still mine…all mine.

{This pretty much sums up how we felt all day long!}

{THE castle}

{slurp…butter beer! It tasted like cream soda, butterscotch, frozen goodness}

{Honeydukes – The Twins candy shop}

{if only I could be a real wizard/witch}


{we rode this roller coaster four times…totally worth the vertigo feeling that lasted all day!}

{Jamie got a new boyfriend. He’s her favorite color.}

{I wasn’t so sure about him. But isn’t that how we’re supposed to treat the new boyfriend of your best friend?}

It was such a fun trip.  I was thankful to celebrate this with one of my dearest friends, Jamie Jett! She is just the sweetest most thoughtful lady in the universe. I LOVE her.

Oh, hey guys! In the past few weeks I’ve been in Milwaukee, Orlando, Dallas and now in Portland, Oregon!  It’s been a whirlwind of crazy busyness and a few unexpected surprises. Life is just really swell right now.  Really swell and super busy and I’m on a happy endorphin rush.  I’ll be updating A LOT soon because boy, do I have a lot to blog about.

Until then…I’ll sit here in Cup and Saucer with my yummy scones and coffee. Mmmm!
