I've been trying to squeeze in a little "me time" in between all the moving preparations + doctor's appointments + volunteering. Of course this is all made possible by my lovely parents who have been visiting the past week. Can I tell you how nice it is to leave the house all by myself, whenever I want? Very nice. Anyways, I met up with the girls for dinner at Cava last week and several days later made it out to the grand opening at Ink + Peat. Wow, does Pam know how to throw a party! Not only was the place hopping all night, but her store is so beautiful. She had an amazing spread of food and since I did not eat dinner beforehand I spent a good amount of time piling up my plate with yummy spring rolls, cheese sticks, tiny cookies and mini cupcakes. Pam even prepared favors for everyone [rock candy in clear bags and I+P post it pads]. I had such a good time sitting outside and catching up with Melissa and Amy, it was totally worth the six mosquito bites I now have on my ankles, hand and finger.
Speaking of cool lifestyle + home accessories shops in PDX, here is a list of my favorites:

P.S. I'll be adding some Japanese craft books to the tag sale tomorrow morning.
