Pink sparkle in the Pacific Northwest

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.

Easter Pets

Just a quick post before the Easter weekend begins to wish you all a happy Easter! I have a busy weekend ahead as I get ready to start filming on a student film that’s been rescheduled five times so far. Fifth times a charm, right? (And hopefully I didn’t jinx it by saying we were finally starting up.) Then Easter dinner at my parents house on Sunday.

Hope you all have fun coloring eggs, doing Easter egg hunts, Easter service, Easter dinner and all that jazz.

On the other hand, how cute are these Easter pet photos I found?
