When life turns upside-down, my BBFF and I work to turn things upside-right. It started off with chocolate during 'those' times, and then we discovered cupcakes! We pretend we're staying on our diets but found a cupcake store that makes button size cupcakes. They're small enough they don't break the bank and big enough to [...]

It's Friday Again! We love to explore the Pearl District in Portland. Today we had lunch at a unique restaurant that instead of chips and salsa serves unlimited pickles! We love to order our bagel sandwiches but linger over the pickle jar. I think they lose money on us with all the delicious pickles we [...]

One of the things we always have in hand is our cameras on our Friday play days! Julie has a collection of beautiful unique photos and I collect photos of gardens and churches. We often drive through town looking for old know, the ones with craftmanship and character that is rarely put into newer [...]

One of the things we love about being entrepreneurs is that ability to 'clock out' when we decide. We committed to 30 years ago when the babies were little to grab a few hours once a week to get away from everyone and everything and just be girls and play. We've weathered together, illnesses, job [...]

Again, we rarely know where we're going on our play days, but it typically involves something sweet. Ask us! We know where every chocolate shop is and where to find the best cupcakes in the state! These are from Jacivas Bakery...a tip from a student helped us find this one. Click here for details Yup, [...]
