Holy moly, I guess I should probably post day 1 pics from our mini Portlandia foodie adventure from the beginning of the month. With an abundance of celebrations, and being sick (again. UGH), it’s been difficult to muster up the energy to get to blogging. I’ve also been prepping myself mentally as I started in a new role and sure enough, the start date was my birthday! If that’s not a good sign, I’m not sure what is. So please forgive as life has been sucking the life outta me, in the best way, of course!
Back to Portland.. What a beautiful city, even with random spikes of rain and 5 seconds of hail. It was the perfect time to escape and experience actual autumn with leaves turning color and the crisp cold air, slightly chilling to the bones. So I know we’re not suppose to be chasing waterfalls, but god damn, we did so anyways. Why? Because Multnomah Falls is breathtaking. If I could just sit in solitude without becoming a icicle or eventually get drenched by rain, trust, that is where you’ll find me.

An outfit of irrelevance now that autumn is truly here, chilling to the bones. I’ve been meaning to post this as soon I returned some weekends ago; however, I was overtaken by sloth behavior. Fighting this lingering cold (ugh!), I decided to take break from exercise to rest, resulting to depleted energy levels. I’m slowly mustering back some energy and recalibrating to my norm, just in time for another weekend trip.. only to find myself back in recovery mode. Then it’ll be my birthday/Thanksgiving food coma (I’m starting to notice the trend here).
That past weekend of October will remain a significant piece of my life. I would say it’ll mean much more for my best friend (or at least it better). I phoned all our close friends and her boyfriend to prepare a surprise gathering for her birthday. It was beyond successful; everyone contributed in creating such a memorable weekend. Really, how can you go wrong with non-stop fooding, spectacular rooftop views, sharing hilarious jokes with great friends and a chance to meet Chili & T-Boz of TLC? Coming from a girl that obsessed over her limited edition Fan Mail CD because it was holographic, and still bumping TLC until this very day, I was on cloud nine for at least the next 72 hours due to short conversation with them. There are a hand full of celebrities that I’d lose my shiz for, and TLC is one of them… I mean I even referred to them in a previous post: here.
