A few weeks ago we had 16 of our friends visit us in Portland to celebrate Festa Italiana and we had such a blast. We spent the evenings downtown enjoying food from local Italian restaurants. They also had music, dancing, and not to forget, vino (a lot of it)! Since the weather was soo gorgeous we also spent a day poolside BBQing and soaking up the sun at The Pilot's parent's house, which they so graciously let us use. I absolutely love getting together with this group of people, there is never a dull moment!

There has also been A LOT of shopping going on this summer for both home goods and wardrobe goods. Here are a few of my favorite buys....
New coat hanger, umbrella holder and fall leaves.
I would say we are ready for that Portland rain.
New boots from H&M (only $60) and my new black heels are from Nordstrom.

And lastly, The Pilot and I managed to squeeze in some fun time on our own.... See below =)
