Happy Friday to you all.

With a sun-shiney morning & day off
what perfect time than to have a bunch at Vivace,
a lovely crepe place just down the hill and off our street
with my best friend & hubby.

Check out these delectable crepes!

One sweet & one savory + cappuccino (for me) & house 'Stumptown' coffee (for the hubs)

The "chunky monkey" ~ Nutella, bananas, and honey.

Later a walk up our hill to Council Crest... complete with a little Spring snow.

I *love* my neighborhood.

happy birth-week to you!

Happy Birthday, Tina!
Well, it was a day early... but when one's work schedule doesn't allow,
it's awesome to just celebrate whatever day of the week...
so, a very Happy Birth-week to you, Tina!

a free book & a contest to boot

I stumbled across this contest offered by Sara Mae when my friend {bethany} posted it on her facebook. 
I couldn't resist entering since there was a $500 shopping spree to be won... and frankly I could use a little help in the morning via a new wardrobe. Secretly I want to go 'what-not-to-wear' and get the $5000 to spend, but I don't think my current wardrobe is bad enough to warrant a spot on that show... nor would I really enjoy being a spectacle to be watched by millions on television. With all that being said, I do think it's a little ironic that I write this post from under my covers in the later part of the morning... *wink*
See what I mean? I could use a little wardrobe inspiration.
Go on over and check it out. Drawing ends on Friday.

Coffee stop at the Fehrenbacher Hof with {tina}, the perfect post-third-day-workout treat.

So much yumminess.
