So, with that very long-winded intro, I bring you the reason behind my post today . . . Farley's beloved Currently. **NOTE: I wrote this yesterday afternoon and didn't get it posted until just now**
After re-reading this, a few actually need explaining this time. We are getting ready to go to dinner with friends so I will make it quick.
LISTENING - so, I made a impulse decision and jumped in the car a few days ago and took off to Portland, Oregon. I lived here for a year (the hubs lived here for 6+) and our hearts are still here. It's been ages since we visited so we bailed and headed north on a whim. We are staying in a wonderful hotel and I can hear the busy streets out the window as I type.
LOVING - as you just read, we are in PDX this weekend. In addition, I have two more outings planned for this month. In a few weeks I am having a girls' weekend in Kentucky. Oh, and the last weekend in February I have a doctor's appointment at Stanford (fingers crossed that the "mass" is nothing major). Although I heart my doc, that stop definitely isn't the fun part. But, the fact that the in-laws are taggin' along so we can do up San Fran together is indeed super awesome! Can't wait for both of these trips.
THINKING - the food in Porland has been amazing and my post-surgery guts have been battlin' the delightful grub . . . but every bite has been worth it. We had dinner at an amazing German place last night and mouth watering BBQ the night before . . . both blew my mind.
WANTING - uh . . . I am from California. Nuff said on this one. GO NINERS!!!
NEEDING - I am running with wonderful heart-themed goodies next week and I need to get them laminated/cut. I know what I am going to be doing during the game tomorrow.
PET PEEVE - do you know what I am talking about when I say "One-Upper??" This is one of those annoying people who responds to hearing you describe a situation or experience by immediately telling a similar story about themselves with a much more fantastic or terrible outcome. Oh my word people . . . this is the W.O.R.S.T!!!! Although I am a very tolerant person and I am able to "look the other way" when it comes to most things, these people drive me absolutely mad. Dude . . . it ain't all about you folks. My heart is starting to race talking about this one so I am going to exit before my blood pressure goes through the roof :)
Alright friends, I am out of here. Gotta fix my "nap hair" and get to getting. Our friends are taking us to Toro Bravo for dinner. YUM!!!
