We're Back!

Happy Happy Monday my peeps!  How are you?  How was your week and weekend?  Great, I hope!  We are finally home and about rested up but still have a little ways to go on that.  We went and went and went non-stop with the few days we had but had such a WONDERFUL time!   I'm going to do these in seperate posts - one for each day so to break up the many many photos that I took.  I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed getting to see the beautiful views! :)
Unfortunately hubby had to work early morning before our trip. So once I got to the airport, I started my day with my morning cup of Joe - Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, of course! 
Then I started shopping and checking out the different shops at the airport.  I fell in love with this laptop cover! 

I thought this mirror made out of deer horns was too adorable and would look great in a cabin somewhere.

After shopping I decided to start my vacation without hubs - it was officially beer 30 and I was ready! :)  Have you noticed a pattern lately?
Shortly after that hubby was off work and ready to get our party started.  He joined me for lunch and went to change his clothes and then we headed to catch our plane. 
We flew out on US Airways and things went very smooth.  I was very happy with their service and would have no problems flying on their airline again.  We had a layover in Phoenix, Arizona and then it was on to Portland.  While in Phoenix, I took a picture of the cute carpet in our terminal at our gate!  See the airplanes in it? HA!
Once we got there and got our car and hotel, it was off to bed so we could get started early on Thursday morning.   We stayed at the Red Lion Hotel and it was a great place to stay and very close to the airport.  The customer Service was great and we will definitely be happy to stay there again.

Oh and before I forget - I wanted to send out a BIG shout out to my brother-in-law, James - today is his birthday and he's one of the best brother-in-laws ever - So Happy Birthday, James!  We love you and miss you much!  Here is a picture of my husband and his brother James on his wedding day:
Well that's the all the pictures from day 1 - be sure to stop by again tomorrow for day 2 pictures!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to say hello!
Lots of love and hugs,
