Hello, dahlings! I’ve been meaning to share these photos of the wonderful architecture on St Andrews Catholic Church down in Portland where we did a photo shoot last week. But, I am having a super un-energetic week this week. Not sure if it’s due to the gray weather, me running out of flavored coffee creamer and choosing to drink tea instead of unflavored coffee (bleh!), or a total lack of sleep on Sunday night before having to get up early to be on set as an extra for the first day of filming for The Librarians, season 4. (Whoo!) I feel like I’ve been taking naps every day to catch up from that one night of terrible sleep. But it’s also been super gray and rainy out, and I know that affects my energy level a bit, too. Today, I’ve had my coffee and have been going all day! I know, the struggle is real peeps…
I’m sure there are a lot of other old churches around Portland with beautiful architecture. In fact, I know there are. I fully intend to visit more of them some day. But for now, this is the one I visited recently. All my architecture lovers out there, this post is for you!
I set out in my pink sparkle sweater hoping to get some good photos today. Spring in the Pacific Northwest is dicey at best. The weather is all over the place. Clouds one minute, rain the next, then hail and thunderstorms followed by sunshine and rainbows. Today was a typical spring day. I didn’t see any hail, thunderstorms or rainbows – but hey, the day isn’t over with yet!
We did this photo shoot near the St. Andrews Catholic Church down in NW Portland. It stayed cloudy while there but the rain was dumping by the time we got done ordering donuts over at Pip’s donuts.
We got some good photos of my pink sparkle sweater I found at Goodwill for $7.50. It was a brand new sweater with a Kohl’s price tag on it. I found myself thinking I could have gotten a better deal off of Kohl’s clearance racks if I’d had a $10 off coupon plus a discount. Ha. You know Goodwill’s over charging when that happens. I was actually hoping to leave with the cool red heels I’d spotted a couple of days earlier when my friend wanted to stop there to look for stuff and we both got distracted by the shoes. But sadly, the shoes were a 6.5 and I wear a 6. And since I have one foot slightly bigger than the other, they seemed like they fit good on that side, but on the other foot they were flapping around like flip flops. So I had to leave them and console myself with this sweater and the fact that it happened to be the right color of tag to get it half off! Whoot Whoot!
And yes, it’s still cold enough for sweaters in Oregon right now.
