A couple of weeks ago I mentioned my good fortune to have a free plane ticket (due to severe Portland snow-and let me tell you that stuff was intense!) that I didn't know what to do with. I was at a loss trying to plan where to go. Well. I stumbled upon the best solution possible. I decided to put it to good use by flying one of my very best friends (and college roommate for three years) out for a "Bachelorette Weekend" the week before she gets married.

Spontaneous trips really are the best, and when I wrote Tuesday morning to ask what she thought of the idea she said she loved it, and that she had one weekend available before her big day was the one directly before! She's just that spontaneous and crazy, god bless her! And so, she'll fly from Washington D.C. to Oakland where we'll spend a couple of days celebrating her last days of singlehood and a treasured friendship over oysters in Tomales Bay, dinner at Pizzaiolo, beers at Zeitgeist, a massage and spa treatment at the Kabuki, and maybe, just maybe a wine tour in Napa. Then she'll fly straight to Portland where she'll meet her family and drive to Pacific City, where she and and her fiance (the lovely and unparalleled Daniel) will be married. I'll be flying up for the wedding as well. Beth is my first close friend to be married. I hear once one goes, the rest start popping like popcorn!

Any suggestions for other fun things to fill our weekend? I'm looking forward to it. Daniel's lucky, Beth is really the best roommate and partner in crime anyone could ever ask for!
