Bucket List: #14

#14 Attend my 1st Country Fair (OCF) – 

I was born in Portland, but grew up in Eugene but either way I am a true Oregonian who had never been to the famous annual Country Fair. Hundreds of people from all over the world head to Veneta for this weekend event every July. So how have I never been to this event that happens every year in my own town? Well as a kid my parents never took me and in college, I just never had the time. My husband actually grew up going to it as one of his best friend’s family runs a burrito both there and has for several decades now, so he has actually spent the whole weekend working there when he was in high school. With the exception of the heat and smell, I loved it! It was like a fairytale and so unique. Around every corner there was just so much to take in. I was amazed at how much work goes into this 3day event and how many people live for it. While it may not depict my daily lifestyle, there are so many things to love about the uniqueness of it all, and the colors… so pretty! I even managed to sport my hippie tie dye Oregon shirt!

We also got to see some friends that we don’t see enough, and Shaun was even put to work like old times in their burrito stand! Overall, it was a great day & I’m glad I got to experience it!

Blazer game

On Sunday the hubby & I went to the Blazer vs. Mavericks game. It is the last game we can attend this season. 😦 The blazers won and since they got more than 100 points we got CHALUPAS, it was also Rudy’s bday – lots of exciting things and of course a couple AMAZING plays! I ❤ L-Train, Wallace, Batum, Miller, Rudy and B-Roy! BLAZER WIN!

 

 

Britney to PDX!

Britney’s new tour – Femme Fatale – dates were announced and she is coming to PDX June 28!

I have loved Britney all my life through her best & worst moments – no one is perfect. Crazy that I found a best friend who LOVES her too! We went to her Circus Tour at the Tacoma Dome in 2009 && I can’t wait to see her again! The show was amazing – it was much more than a concert it was a show, reminded me of Cirque Du Soleil. We were 21 rows up and had a great night with the Pussycat Dolls, Britney & beer!

I took this pic at the Circus tour of her finale performance.

Bestie and I at Britney – ahhh we looks so young!
