Discovering Donna


More Accomplished

Posted in Weekend by Donna on August 11, 2008

Well, here we are, it’s Sunday. I’ve been slacking on my posting simply because there hasn’t been enough time in the day for me. Thursday we just kinda milled around until it was time to get our toes and nails did. Then we came home, hung out for a little while and then went to Washington Park for a cook out with some of the kids from the ‘hood. I got to see a beautiful sunset and maybe tomorrow I can post all the pics from the past few days on my myspace. After the beautiful sunset and wonderful picnic we came home and crashed. Friday we got up went to our dental appointments and then headed to Seattle to get Nick. A 5 hour road trip became an 8 with the traffic and we got to Portland late Friday night.
When we got there we found out that D and I were on the top floor with a king size bed! And you had to have a special key card to get up there. It was sweet. Then we dropped our stuff, headed over to the other hotel to finally meet Juanita. I got to meet her, Mikey, Patsy and Bob. Then after a quick hello we went back to the hotel and just chilled. Saturday we got up, went to Don Shula’s restraunt in the hotel that we had a free breakfast to and had a nice breakfast with Doni and Nick. Then we went back to our room and got ready for the wedding. My hair did right for a change.
The wedding was beautiful and we had a great time. Afterwards there was a party at the hotel and we went for a while. This most certainly has been an intresting trip. I can now say that I’ve had Thai food, Japanese, Sushi, Lamb, Salmon. And I didn’t dislike any of them. I think my favorite so far has been the California roll.
We got up this morning, had breakfast with Sheryl, David, Matt, Emily, and Jessica. Which by the way, I love this side of the family, they are all really cool. Then we went to Powell’s bookstore!!!! I can cross something else off my list! I could get lost in that store, it’s huge and awesome! Then we can home. I blessedly don’t remember much of the trip home, thanks to having such a horrible night last night and Doni knocking me out with some meds. So I’m know this is short and I could go into more detail but I’m trying to get it mostly down while I am still coherent. Tomorrow I think we are going to go see the Powell story poles and another park in town and no telling what else.

Oh and by the way, next time you need a good stiff drink-order a Orange Jasmine drop!! Until later!

Love everyone will update more soon!
