This Weekend . . . Is A Bit of a Blur

This weekend was one of those where - looking back, you can't believe that Friday was only two days ago. How could I have done all of these things in just a matter of days? Well let me tell you - I am feeling it. I mentioned on Facebook Saturday evening that I probably had done more squats throughout the day than if I had made it to the gym.
Friday night Tristan and I had a chance for a date night! Usually when we go out, it is with friends. We don't normally go and do something just the two of us - and almost NEVER do we go into downtown Portland. It is Tristan's favorite thing to do. But, I've been wanting to go to this dueling piano bar called the Barrel Room, so he conceded and we made a night of it. Before going to the show, we had dinner at Rock Bottom - which was delicious, but we didn't have the best service (one of T's pet peeves). The show made up for it tho - I would definitely go back!

Saturday and Sunday were spent primarily behind my lens - here is a pullback of what my typical newborn shoot looks like:

Yep, it's a mess.  My time was spent with several new babies, as well as a couple of families.


Sunday evening I did a little grocery shopping - love my Safeway discounts!  When I got home and cleaned out the fridge to make room for the fresh food, I found this carton of eggs.  Yes - T had put it back in the fridge without a single whole egg in it.  Boys...!

My glass of wine helped me get started on the massive amount of editing I had to do.  It is still going to take me a few days to get through it all!

Yes. It was a whirlwind of a weekend...but it was a lot of fun.  As I'm writing this on Sunday evening, I am ready to head to bed.  This time change always throws me off a bit...

To Monday!

  5. Stopping by from the weekend update!

    My husband does the same thing. He leaves the egg shells in the carton and then puts them in the fridge. Drives me nuts. Cause I always think there are eggs in the fridge.

    If you have a moment, please check out my blog.
