Shannon is...

...trying to stay calm, but failing miserably. Seriously, I am so excited about the upcoming trip it's like I had 4 cups of coffee (or at least what I imagine I would be like if I ever did that, haha).

...working on a "To Do" list for my 3 weeks off. I don't want it to fly by and not have accomplished anything. In fact, maybe I will post it here so I have to hold myself accountable.

...drinking a ginormous Diet DP so that I can try and skip my regular nap. Maybe that is causing my jitters...

...feeling a little sunburned.

...procrastinating starting the laundry. Why does it torture me so? I swear that basket is magic. I wash every single piece of dirty laundry, and by the time I go to bed the basket is full again.

...also starting her list of Must See places when we go to Portland. Among them VooDoo Donuts (I have GOT to try a maple bacon donut), Pix Patisserie (to try some of the French Macarons that Black Apple's Emily often raves about), and the Portland Children's museum (much larger than when I was a kid, but still a childhood memory I want to pass on to my own kiddos). I really hope we can do these things, but we shall see!

...getting excited for a new sewing project I am starting up. Keep your eyes peeled for a blogiversary giveaway coming up! (See now that I mentioned it, I HAVE to do it!)

...wondering if anyone still reads this? *tap tap* Anyone out there?

Shannon said...

Haha! Not creepy at all! I promise :D

Jared said...

I still read your blog too Shannon!

Barack Obama said...

I never miss a post.

Mrs. L said...

You know I read! We'll have to get together with our list of places to eat...you know I'm all about the food!

Jenny said...

I read your blog every day! I just never know what to comment. So I'll just start saying: "alrighty." how does that sound?

I've got you on my feedreader. :)

I LOVE voodoo donuts. We're moving there (knock on wood) this September. You might also check out the Portland Art Museum. It was SO cool. And of course Powell's!

Shannon said...

Aww look! I wasn't even expecting lurkers to delurk. I have stopped hoping for comments, but of course, feedback is always lovely. Maybe that is why I do facebook so much?

And Jenny, haha, I totally remember that conversation. I think I may have to start dropping you some "alrightys" as well!

And yes, Powells, I don't think Keith has been, I know he would love it! But I have to admit I get very overwhelmed in bookstores (not to mention one that size!), too many to choose from! I am totally jealous you get to move there Cassie!

Ashley said...

Maple Bacon Bar huh? Let me know how that goes... I don't think anyone reads mine hardly ever. I have sitemeter- hello! They sure as heck rarely ever comment.

Shannon said...

I read yours Ashley! It comes straight to my google reader though, I don't know if that shows up on sitemeter? I need to get better at commenting, you would think I would do it more, since I like to get them too! haha!

We are sooooo excited to hear you are coming. We know you will be busy with your fam, but would love to see you. I will try and e-mail you a list of fun things you might want to go do.

And be prepared when you go to VooDoo--it is nasty looking, the store that is. You will wonder how they pass the health code inspection. The donuts are crazy! You and Keith should go in the middle of the night--that's when it is the craziest. My sister, and friends, and IU went at 11:30 p.m. Holy smokes--the crazies are out.

Anyways, I will send you a facebook message later--let us know when you can hang with us in P-town.
