138. Pioneers and Pink Dresses

My Dad (right) accepting his much deserved award!

Last week, my Dad received the Pioneer Award at the University of Oregon.  It was a black tie affair and all of my siblings plus my aunts and uncles were able to make it up to The Nines Hotel in Portland for the ceremony.  It was a proud moment for me as his daughter and I’m sure he will never forget it, as well.  I even gave an impromptu speech!

I have to say, one of my favorite parts of the weekend was when my sister and I walked out of the hotel room in practically the same dress (ahem, fuchsia and ruffles).  In honor of this occurrence I thought I’d make a fake Nordstrom ad.  Here it is:

Oh, sisterly love.  She is getting married in less than 2 weeks.  As long as I don’t show up in a white bridal gown I think we’ll be okay.


106. Boo & Nordstrom

Apparently America’s favorite dog, Boo, got a sneak peak at the spring shoe season at Nordstrom this week.  You know something is wrong with the world when dogs get to view collections before fashion editors.  For some reason I feel like Boo might be hitting the runway very soon!

6. It’s a little scary how well Nordy’s knows me…

Yep, I did buy (in the actual store):

a) those exact shoes

b) that tank top in black.

Nordstrom, I feel like you had me at Nordstrom.
