Long weekends.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Fourth of July! We couldn't have asked for better holiday weekend weather in Portland - every day felt like paradise.

On Wednesday eve, B and I met up with some Nike friends, Laura and Ryan, for a double date in the Pearl District, and enjoyed a delicious Italian feast. It was perfect maxi dress weather, and I was able to don my newest staple wardrobe piece: a Splendid Maxi dress from the Nordstrom sale. 

On Thursday morning we hit the track with our fellow Stumprunners for a patriotic inspired workout. And after resting up, we commenced a weekend of gluttony - for the 4th I made BBQ ribs, potato salad, corn and strawberry pie, because if there aren't calories involved, it ain't American! After being properly filled up with calories, we made our way over to the Hawthorne Bridge to catch fireworks on the river (along with most of Portland's population!). I had an absolute blast! 

The rest of the weekend involved some trail runs, bagels with friends, movie watching, frisbee throwing and relaxation - anything to enjoy 2 days off from work and perfect summer weather. If only I had a few more days off...
