Anne directed me out of Newberg and off we were, on to Oregon City where I would meet up with a friend of mine and stay with her family for the weekend.
As soon as I arrived at her place it was time to head out the door for our girls night out. Her sister’s prom was that night and we were going to use the limo her sister and friends took to prom while they danced the night away. So we went to dinner, by we I mean Austen, her mom and a couple of her mom’s friends. After dinner the limo had already dropped the kids off at prom and the five of us ladies took charge of the limo.
A night like that is never complete with out music, good food and laughs, all of which we enjoyed the whole night through. We had chips and salsa, amongst other snacks, while in the limo. We also had a great driver who was funny and enjoyed joking and laughing with us.
We drove around Portland and enjoyed the excitement of the Cinco De Mayo festival that was being held there. We rolled down the windows and waved to pedestrians. I used the quote from Princess Diaries and said, “Thank you for being here today” in a British accent to the people we waved at.
First, we stopped at a fancy chocolate shop where we purchased a few “shots” of drinking chocolate. This was rich, warm, dark chocolate like I’ve never tasted before.
Our second stop was a little place called VooDoo donuts. Usually, this place is packed with a line that stretches along the outside of the building. However, we came at just the right time when the line was barely out of the door. We quickly ordered our donuts, with one for our awesome driver of course, and headed out the door back to our large black limo.
After that, we decided to just drive past the prom and past as many people downtown as possible. We had a blast waving at people and interacting. We sometimes even kept the window half way up and only stuck our hands out to wave, trying to look like celebrities. We laughed and laughed at our goofy attempts at our 15 minutes of fame and at the various responses people gave to us. Some people took out cameras and started snapping photos of us- a few crazy women enjoying a Girls. Night. Out. :)
