A Drag Queen Brunch

Last weekend, I went to a drag queen brunch at the Night Light Lounge with a great group of ladies!

I went to college with Steph waaaaaay back in the day and she’s been on the blog a few times over the years. We don’t get together as much as we should, but we always have a great time when we do!

The Night Light Lounge throws a drag queen brunch every Saturday and Sunday and it’s so much fun! The food was great (there are vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and meat options – totally Portland, right?) and the entertainment was fabulous.

Each performer performed two or three times so there was entertainment throughout the entire brunch. After the entertainment was over, we all had a little dance party and then had the chance to take a picture with the performers!

This was so much fun. If you have the chance, go to this great brunch! Buy tickets in advance and make sure you take a lot of money for tips!!

Something to Celebrate!

Just a quick post to celebrate G!

On Thursday, he celebrated 34 years of sobriety! Thirty-four f*cking years. Wow. I baked him cupcakes and he ate them all. I’m so proud of him (for eating all the cupcakes and the 34 years of sobriety). Congrats George!

Models and Birthdays!

Last Sunday, Kennedy, Kai and Kaz got to be models! I volunteer for the Portland Film Festival and the Festival needed kids to model the merchandise for this year’s festival. We thought Kennedy, Kai and Kaz would be perfect…and they were!

Before the photo shoot, my sister dropped Kennedy off at my house pretty early in the morning. I talked a lot to her about modeling and what poses she should do and then we decided to spend some time perfecting our coloring.

After a few episodes of Nailed It! and finishing our coloring pages, we headed downtown for the shoot. Kennedy and I showed up before Kai and Kaz, but Kennedy was too shy to do any modeling with the “big kids” so we waited. And once Kai and Kaz showed up, they were all ready to model!

All the models were really great and I love this selfie that one of them took:

Looks like all the selfies I’ve made them take over the years has been great practice! The kids had such a good time and at the end of the shoot, I had them show us some of their special poses. It was brilliant!

And I love this one of Kai trying to do Ken’s pose:

Their faces! So damn cute. Obviously, they did a great job and we only had to pay them in snacks! #bestmodelsever

Also last week, there were a couple of super important birthdays in my family. A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout-out to my dad who refuses to celebrate birthdays now:

And another HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my brother, Jeff!

Happy Saturday to all of you! I hope you’re having a great summer weekend.
