So, you know what's the most awesome ever?! Last night Johnny and I booked our plane tickets to go to Portland! Eeeeeeee! I am very, very excited!
We have been talking about the trip for a while now and it feels so good and so final to have actually booked our tickets. Yay! We're really going!
Mr. Rios and I are headed to the "Rose City" at the end of April and we're going to be staying with these crazy kids - Eric and Rachel. Ah, I love those guys! I can't wait! It is destined to be a good time. Btw, if you never got a chance to read my E&R post, I highly recommend it, if for nothing else but the Jacob Vols video!
A trip in April means that by that point, Ashley and Chris will be moved into their amazing dream home in Portland! I am totally looking forward to also meeting up with these silly lovebirds! After our awesome San Fran double date, I'm thinking a triple date might be in order! Huh, huh, what do you think guys?! Or maybe game night? Maybe I should bring a board game as my carry on.
Besides spending time catching up and hanging out with two of the coolest couples of all time, I am really looking forward to checking out Portland.
It seems like every indie hipster (er bordering on grandpa hipster by this point?) have packed up their collection of skinny jeans and hightailed Fresno for Portland. And now with both E&R and A&C relocating to P-town, it makes me think that maybe those kids know their stuff and Portland really will live up to the hype.
E&R have been talking up Portland ever since they moved there in June and have told me and John that as soon as we come to visit, we will fall in love with that corner of Oregon and will then load up a U-Haul for P-town in no time. Although it took me and John three and a half years to even leave our first apartment for nicer digs, I guess anything is possible! I will definitely report back my findings to this very blog.
Oh, and guess what's random - the morning after we bought our plane tickets, Glamour.com posted this piece -- A Glamour Girl's Guide to Portland. How timely! I can't wait to check out adorable restaurants like Pix Patisserie or Le Happy, as well as hiking, biking and shopping at cute little shops like Frances May. Oooh I wanna go now!
Anyways, so you can tell I'm pretty pumped about the trip. So -- what exciting trips do you have planned for this year? Or, if you don't have anything planned, what's a dream trip you're saving up for? My dream trip is Greece!
If you're one of my lovely commenters, I would love to hear about your trip -- but if you're a lurker, I think you owe it to the internetz to let your voice be heard. I mean, it was delurking day a few days ago (man, I'm so fashionably late!) and if this scary little graphic doesn't convince you, I don't know what will! Could that little man get any creepier?! Ahh!
