22/52: Girl's Week(end)

We had an extended Girl's Weekend this past week with Brian having to fly to the east coast for work.  I spent the weekend with Chick in Portland, celebrating the last of the birthday meals then heading into the weekend with gardening and lunching.

Last Thursday night, Chick treated me to a great and exotic Thai meal at Pok Pok NW.  We slurped down some refreshing cocktails and dined on Ike's famous Thai wings followed by a pork belly/shoulder curry and a spicy Thai herbal salad with coconut milk dressing.  I love the NW Portland location and I can see myself dropping by for a cool cocktail and a double order of wings again very soon!

Summer is here, even if the solstice doesn't start for another 3 weeks.  Portland has had some amazing weather and we took advantage of a cooler Saturday to shop several nurseries for plants and then spent a few hours on the patio at Cafe Murrayhill enjoying and amazing lunch and a bottle of wine.

Sunday we spent several hours making the backyard beautiful, including planting a gorgeous pink hydrangea.
