These two flew in from California where they spent Christmas and spent the New Years with us. They brought tons of goodies for the babe and we all stayed up way past our bed time jumping on the bed and playing with Rae's new toys. The first night we ate dinner at Imperial and dessert was at Salt and Straw. You guys, if you're ever in Portland it's a must. The BEST ice cream ever. The next morning we woke up and went to Slappy Cakes where you make your own pancakes. We may or may have not had too much fun being little pancake artists. The chocolate and peanut butter batter mixtures we're a hit. Multnomah Falls was super chilly, Rae and I actually ended up staying in the car because I didn't have a heavy enough coat on her. We could still see it from the car and the pictures everyone came back with were gorgeous!
we celebrated NYE at Henry's Tavern with yummy food and an even better dessert that ultimately became Raelyn's birthday ice cream sandwich cake (yum) and brought things back to the hotel where we celebrated the New York ball drop with Rae, put her down and then things got real crazy ;) totally kidding.. those champagne bottles were never even opened ha! It was such a FUN weekend and I am so, so thankful for good friends. Wishing I could keep them here with me!
and now that you've stuck with me that long, I have a few fun giveaways planned for a pre celebration to Rae's SECOND birthday! They'll trickle in within the next few weeks and today's is from wild plum co.
The prettiest mama, Cassie is offering a $15 shop credit and just in time because she's having a sale this weekend on Instagram. Both my girls have weaves hanging in their rooms and you better believe I'm keeping my eye out for another one :)
