Husband and I have become quite the seasoned road trippers these days.
(is that a word?)
An eight hour drive
and hitting four states in one day is like nothing to us.
We are explorers of the great unknown.
Taking nothing with us but the clothes on our back,
and a giant cooler full of gluten free food!
Okay, so maybe I packed a little bit more clothing than that...

My sister graduated from college this weekend.
I am so completely proud of her and all her hard work.
I am also REALLY EXCITED for her to move back to our home city.
It's been lonely having her far away.
We need a hang out sesh stat!

Dress: Old Navy, Boots: Tahari, Blazer: H&M, Jewelry: H&M, Target, F21
I wore this outfit to my sister's college graduate this past weekend.
Her college is a little more on the casual side,
and I wanted to be dressed up,
but not too over dressed.
You know what I mean?
The campus made for a beautiful background for these photos.
I just wish it had stopped raining
for more than the ten minutes it took me to take these pictures.
Good thing I whipped out the camera when I did!
Also, true story about this dress:
I totally got this for ten dollars.
The dress was on promo at Old Navy,
and then this one was damaged out at 50% off.
Why was it damaged out you ask?
Because it is a petite cut that is tagged as a regular.
I'm not sure why they decided that made it worth 50% off,
but I wasn't about to argue with the good folks of Old Navy!
Linking up with What I Wore Wednesday, The Mrs and the Momma, Passion for Fashion and Vodka Infused Lemonade!

On clearance for something ridiculous like five dollars at Old Navy.
A glorious bright sunshine yellow.
And super soft!
Like wearing bedroom slippers.
Yup, I will be cruising all over town in these this summer.
Now I just have to figure out a way to wear them to the office...

Welcome to my first post on living Gluten Free in Portland!
These posts will pop up now and again to help others navigate the city
while living gluten free.
Today's post is on gluten free bakeries.
If you are visiting the area,
I'd highly recommend doing a tour de bakeries.
Portland has some amazing options to choose from!
First up is a recap of Petunia's!
Petunia's Pies and Pastries
610 SW 12th Avenue,
Portland, OR 97205
Petunia's is a new bakery in the gluten-free Portland scene,
opening their store front a little over two months ago.
The business is owned and run by a young woman
who began cooking gluten free treats from her home kitchen
before offering them up for sale at the Portland Farmers Market.
The entire bakery is gluten free and vegan,
which means once you walk in the door
the gluten free community can pick anything they want to order!
They prepare a mixture of baked goods, savory items, and cocktails.
If you stop by, be sure to get the salted caramel cookie bar.
I cannot stress this enough.
It is by far my favorite on their menu!
Coming up next time is a review of Crave Bakeshop.
