Day 354 of Project 365
So my best friend (who has lived in Vegas for the last 5 years) totally surprised me with a visit to Portland last weekend. She couldn't have done it with out the help of the lovely (and sneaky) Emelye Cunningham, who had arranged to meet me for lunch at my favorite little pizza place in Oregon City on Saturday. Looking back now, the whole thing was a little fishy but I didn't have a clue as to why until Joi walked through the door. It was such a great Christmas present to have her here and although we only got to hang out briefly on Saturday, we were able to spend the whole day together on Monday. Our day included brunch at Biscuits Cafe, letting Jenica open her Christmas present from Auntie Joi early, some last minute Christmas shopping, watching the season finale of Survivor that we had both missed the night before, and then dinner with some City Bible friends before dropping her off at the airport for the trip home. During our Christmas shopping, I needed to pick up my wedding rings at Jared so we did some browsing and I am now fully versed on the type of ring Joi likes. So... bring on the boyfriend and when the time comes I will be the perfect helper when it's time for him to pop the big question.
