{Real Party} Portland Blogger’s Family Picnic

{Real Party} Portland Blogger’s Family Picnic
The Portland Bloggers group that I’ve been meeting up with just had the June Meet-up. The group meets approximately every two months. This month it was a family picnic so that everyone could meet some of the people that we all blog about.
Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate.
A last minute venue change along with busy summer schedules made for a small turn-out.
But, the small turn out ended up allowing the group to really talk about blogging.
As my hubby told me repeatedly “It is quality, not quantity!”
 So, not much on the picnic front, but a lot of great information and some fun new faces.
(I’ll be sharing some of the blogging topics over on my other blog, Leave the Laundry for Later.)
I wanted to share the pretty party details with you.
And, tomorrow, stop by for a couple quick and easy DIY party tips!
All the ladies from the event: Macey, Courtney, Justine, Kae, Suzannah, myself, and Adi

We all posed with the balloon. Silly, but fun!

I loved this photo of my son so I had to share!
All photos were taken by the lovely Macey from Motormouth Studio. She is a Portland-area family, portrait, and wedding photographer. I really like her style and was thrilled when she donated a gift-certificate for the meet-up, coupons for the bloggers, and agreed to take photos of the event!
Bloggers in attendance at the event: 
Baby Daddy PDX—Matt
Charmed in PDX— Courtney

Weekend Update: Pretty Picnic

Weekend Update: Pretty Picnic
This weekend was a busy one! 
The Portland Blogger’s Meet-Up was scheduled to be a beautiful outdoor picnic this past weekend. And, then the forecast called for lots and lots of rain

After a lot of calls, and some great support from Portland Bloggers, we got an alternate venue that worked beautifully. The picnic baskets weren’t spread out on pretty blankets in the grass. But, we did get to chat about blogs and be surrounded by little glimpses of what summer has in store for us later.
The sun shined just long enough for us to get some fun photos. I’m excited to see the photos that Macey, from MotorMouth Studio, took of the event. 
After the event my little family got to go to dinner with Suzannah’s (Adventures in Dressmaking) family. It was fun to go over future ideas for events and just unwind after two-months of planning and one extra-stressful week of re-planning.
All in all it was a busy and good weekend. But, I am feeling a little bit sad about the lack of Summer right now. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you got to enjoy a little bit of summer. 
Professional photos from the {Real Party} and some {DIY} posts coming soon.
