Weekend in Review: Whole Foods, Party Prep, and Portland Bloggers

Today I am taking it EASY. I’m playing with my little guy and resting while he rests. The house and the rest of my to-do list can wait around for me to catch a breath. I had a really busy and really wonderful few days this past week. I’ve been going non-stop and have a ton of posts in the works to share with you over the next week!

Here is a quick photo recap of the past few days!
1. Thursday—Did finishing touches on the Portland Bloggers Meet-Up planning with Sam and Nicole. 2. Thursday—Was invited to enjoy delicious foods and a cooking lesson at Whole Foods (more on that later this week) 3. Thursday—Whole Foods provided tasty cherry mojitos for a refreshing beverage. I think I’m going to try to recreate these soon! 4. Friday—Worked on creating product for my upcoming Etsy venture and for the Portland Blogger Swag bags. I was thrilled with how cute they looked in the packaging I created.

1. Friday—The Portland Bloggers were donated 100 gorgeous carnations from wholesale flower source FiftyFlowers.com and I had a blast creating simple, yet eye-catching centerpieces with them. 2. Saturday—I was in awe of how gorgeous the venue was for this event. We were so lucky to have such great weather! Photo by @PortlandPorter (my hubby)3. Saturday— I love me a signature cocktail and I made three different ones for the blogger meet-up. TASTY. The beautiful photo is from Sam at Sam Rosen. 4. Saturday— Sam also took this pretty photo of me all dressed up in my Banana Republic dress.

 1. Saturday—Twenty wonderful Portland Bloggers joined us for the meet-up and some even brought dates! It was a really wonderful time! 2. Sunday—Pulled out all the lovely swag from the event. There were wonderful treats from Strawberry Blue Scents, Meemee & Saysay, Radiant Cosmetics, A Well Crafted Party, and Nuvrei! 3. Sunday—It was a gorgeous day Sunday…but, I was stuck inside at work. I got a text with this beautiful photo of my son enjoying the weather. Photo by @furiousjonny (my bro-in-law) 4. Sunday—After three days of NO napping and lots of screaming X finally crashed. Such a cutie. Photo by @PortlandPorter

So, that was my long weekend. What did you do this weekend?

    I must say, I wish I could have been there! As always it looks like a BIG hit! My weekend included sleeping in, gardening, biking and writing. It was delightful.
