I’ve been wanting to visit one of my dearest friends from college (who is officiating our wedding) and one of my favorite bloggers for some time now. When I found out that Ryan’s band was traveling through Oregon I decided I would kill two birds with one stone and take a mini vacation!
I arrived on Friday afternoon and was greeted by a gorgeous girl that I haven’t seen in SIX YEARS (I can’t believe that!). She’s one of those friends who can be in another state for ages, but the moment you meet up again it’s like she never left.
Chelsea had to work on Friday so I went and hung out with her at her bar and invited Kelsey to join me!
Kelsey is the absolute cutest! We had so much fun just talking about life at the bar. So far I’ve met two blog friends in person and so far it’s been the best experience. They are all as great as they are online.
I stayed with Chelsea and her handsome kitty Bronson. She has the most ridiculously cool attic room with rooftop access and a claw-foot tub. <3
On Saturday we were in for an adventure. It started out with a nice walk, breakfast and a little shopping at some vintage shops and boutiques.
We stopped for gelato before we went to rent a car for our trip to Canby, Oregon where Cash’d Out was playing a show. Little did we know that the car rental place closed at NOON on a SATURDAY! We called around and finally found a place that was still open. We had something like 15 minutes to hop on a bus and run three blocks before they closed, but we MADE IT just in time to rent this beauty.
This Crown Victoria brought us to the show in STYLE. We also brought Chelsea’s friend (and my new friend), Karli along for the ride.
With good company and good music we all danced the night away and I was accosted by a drunken cowboy who quickly became Ryan’s mortal enemy.
It was a very amazing adventure and I was very sad when it was over, but it was just the first half of the Oregon fun.
