Have a Fantastic Weekend!

{me & my sister at her wedding 3 years ago}

What are you up to this weekend? Tomorrow my big sister, Cristina, and my brother-in-law, Josh, get into town from L.A. Cristina is actually responsible for setting Corey and I up, so we are both super excited to see each other and celebrate the engagement!! I seriously can’t wait to see her. I hate that she lives so far away– and now that I’m planning my wedding I hate it even more!

Sunday we are having our engagement party up at Corey’s parent’s house. We are having “bubbles and brunch” and will be celebrating with a casual party filled with mimosas, homemade biscotti and scones, and tons of other delicious food. I am so excited to have everyone in one place to celebrate! It’s going to be a great weekend. Hope you have an amazing couple of days! Talk Monday 🙂

    Bridgeport Brewery (really fun brewery with amazing local beer and food!)

    Noble Rot (trendy wine bar… go here for a great view of Portland)

    Mother's (for breakfast. get the salmon hash, it's insanely good)

    St.Cupcake! Yum!

    As for shops:

    You can't miss Powell's Books (one of the biggest bookstores in the world)

    Mabel & Zora (cute & trendy local boutique)

    Frances May (cool indie/urban boutique)

    Gosh there are sooo many places to see! I totally agree with everything in the Design Sponge guide to Portland if you're looking for something more in-depth! http://www.designspongeonline.com/2009/07/portland-oregon-guide.html
