joy. ful.

What a joyful weekend!
This weekend was pretty incredible! Absolutely beautfil weather in Portland.
cough cough...finally...cough cough
We had tons of fun in the sunshine. It was a weekend of celebrating..Ben passed his series 7 exam on Friday so now he is one step closer to being licensed to sell securities! I'm married to a stock broker...weird! So proud of him, he got a 90% and its one of the hardest tests you can take. YAY HUSBAND! We went out to dinner with our families on Friday night to celebrate Ben's test and my daddy's big fat raise! ...and I almost passed out at the table because I was so tired from the week.
Anyway, on Saturday we got up and did one of our favorite things to do on Saturday mornings...Went for a drive out in the country and looked at old houses and dreamed of buying them and fixing them up and putting babies and dogs and cute furniture in them.
(told you I would wear these this weekend)

We stopped at the cutest little place called SouthStore. A little cafe in an old house on the way to Newberg. I got an iced americano and a quiche. Ben got a turkey bacon and brie sandwhich (yum) and an iced tea. We sat out on the porch with Tangle who gets super tired in the sun. Its great. (and i got a new hat which is also great)

We went to champoeg park and laid out in a clearing with Tangle
(on the Pocahontas blanket, stylin').
We finished off the night with our friends Jeremy and Katy. Had (gigantic) burgers and watched The Departed. Not good. Well, good, but so much ridiculous language.

Sunday morning it was beautiful again, and Ben went to play tennis with his bro, so I went for a run and to the gym, and came home and made the most delicious oatmeal with fresh fruities, yogurt, honey and cinnamon. I cheated on my iced coffee and made it with Starbucks Via.
Not bad actually!

laid out in the hammock and read for a little while...

Then went to Allison's pool and met up with Stephen & Rachel and baby Avery. Her first pool experience. It was pretty stinkin precious. She loved it! Ben loved it too. I think he needs one.
(a baby, not a pool)

Said farewell for now to my dear sweet little friend Laura. She is moving to Eugene and I will miss her sweet face! I love you Laura!

An amazing weekend! I am super blessed :-)

PS...its supposed to be sunny for the next 7 days. Praise Jesus!
