Frozen Peas

Last night, I got back to Portland, and celebrated in true oregonian style by hitting up the co-op for some lentils and organic local milk and yogurt.  My tummy had enough of christmas cookies, and wanted something healthy.

(yogurt, granola, berries, flax, jam)

then we went out for microbrews and pub food.

(But they were organic microbrews, so they were healthy. Right?)

My tummy full of hop juice and brewery food, I was thinking about how fantastic some veggies would be, when darling Mama Pea texted asking if I was up for Sweet Tomatoes the next day.

Hugh Jass salad with my fav mama and her girls?  Heck yes.

This morning she added in Inflatable Kingdom to our playdate agenda.

This clearly was a day that would be the best playdate ever if you’re (a) 4 or (b) me.

I arrived to see a bouncing Gigi, and an oh so happy Lulu

Like I said, it’s awesome if you’re 4.  Apparently not so much if you’re two.

(Sidenote:  You can rent out the inflatable kingdom.  It’s next to a McMenamins.  And right by Sweet Tomatoes.  Andrea, we’re thinking this could be the greatest blogger meet up in history)

Sweet tomatoes meant a Hugh Jass for me

And going to town on cottage cheese and lemonade for Lulu

After stops through Pottery Barn Kids and Williams Sonoma (Seriously, see how this is the greatest play date ever?) Mama Pea was dropping me out of my car when we found snow!

The only thing better than finding snow is watching two adorable children dance around in it

And try to catch snowflakes on their tongues

(Sidenote:  how much do you love Gigi’s outfit?  I want one in my size)

I bid the Peas goodbye, and drove home.  In the 15 minute drive I watched the roads starting to turn white.

I came home to my yard looking like this

Which in a few hours became this

Which is now even deeper!  Bet you a dollar the fiance gets a snow day tomorrow!
