{Smell The Roses} Oregon International Air Show

A’s parents bought 4 Oregon International Air Show tickets this year and invited us along. I had never been and A hadn’t been since he was a kid so were were both super excited! It was one of the hottest weekend we had seen in Portland this summer, but it was so much fun eating random carvinal snacks and watch the wonder of these airplanes. Everything they did was so impressive. Swoops, point turns, purposeful parachute/engine failure, and the jetpack truck! It really made us appreciate the history of human invention as well as our US military. This year’s star attraction were the USAF Thunderbirds. They were incredible! We’ll definitely be headed their next year for the Navy Blue Angels! (Photos by A.)

Have you ever been to an air show?

{Wordless Weekend Recap} Giveaway: La Sardina Wide Angle Camera

 This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.

Whether it be with my Instagram, Mr. Pink Diana, or my Nikon DSLR, my cameras are an essential part of every {Wordless Weekend Recap} post. I recently bought my own wide angle lomography camera and I thought the La Sardina Wide Angle Lomography Camera was the perfect prize for a giveaway for my beloved readers so I got you one too! The La Sardina Sea Pride features a fantastic wide angle lens, a rewind dial and MX switch so you can shoot multiple exposures, a film cartridge window so you always know what film you’re shooting, a bulb setting for night-time and long-exposure experimentation, and much more! I’m so excited to try mine out!

{Weekend Recap} New Years, A’s Birthday, and A Trainyard Picnic

My best friend and her boyfriend visited for New Years and we had so many fun adventures. But, of course, since we were having such a great time, I completely forgot to capture them on my camera. All I have to show for it is this:

Plastic bubbles we made. Did you every play with those little plastic bubble paste that comes in a metal tube and you wrap around a straw to blow unpoppable bubbles? Yea, we realized we kind of sucked at it. It was fun trying though! PS: Carcassonne (in the background) is seriously my new addiction.

We also tried to do some block printing, so I got one of these from Ink & Peat:

We ended up carving our own lino and using those instead.

Then we went to a local store to get ingredients to make popsicles on N’s new zoku pop and I decided to snap a pic of the pretty carrots:

Last week was also A’s birthday so I dragged him to get a sombrero:

We celebrated a few times this week and I’m hoping he had a good on this year.

This weekend we also decided to get some food from here:

And then picnic & take film pictures here:

People driving by thought we were crazy because it was super cold. It was so nice though and the food was delicious! You must try their savory green onion shrimp coconut pancakes.

How was your New Years? How was your first 2012 weekend?

{Weekend Recap} Lovely Package Exchange, Peacock Lane, and The Holiday Box Continues

I finally got out my gift for my Oh Hello Friend Lovely Package Exchange! My exchange partner was into knit/crochet & handmade, so I went for a handmade knit cup I found at Portland Bazaar from Schoolhouse Electric and some mulling spices and tassel earrings I made.


We finally went to catch the lights on Peacock Lane. It was chilly, but lots of fun looking at all the decorations!

Work on the holiday box continues. I finished several, so I will be playing Santa Claus today as I secretly drop them off at friends’ homes. More pictures & details to come!

How is the holiday rush coming? Did you have a good weekend?
