Life in the PNW

Dear Blog,

You know how each company has different acronyms for phrases they use all the time? I'm slowing getting used to the lulu lingo and PNW is thrown a lot. I'm very lucky to be opening a store in the Pacific NorthWest because lulu is growing like ca-razy up here and everyone snatches it up like hot coldcakes. Speaking of coldcakes, today it was so cold here. It didn't even get out of the 60's!!! I wear a jacket everyday and I usually take it off at some point but today I was all kindsa bundled up in my jacket and regretting my sandals choice.

I'm slowly learning that everyone who lives up here (disclaimer: that I've come in contact with, clearly I have not met everyone here) LOVES it up here with a passion. I mean a hot, fierce passion. So hot and fierce that the PNW wants to secede from the Union (whoops, that was South Carolina!!!) alright so the PNW wants to secede from the United States and form their own country; Cascadia. That's right, Cascadia. And just for clarification, I'm talking Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. I could have dual citizenship, y'all!! I will keep you posted on the success of this new country in my coming posts. BUT, in the meantime, read all about it HERE I'm already practicing my pledge of allegiance to my new country!!

I head back to the Vancoov (Vancouver) on Sunday for my last round of the Groove and I guess I'm not dreading it but I'll be glad when my one week here, two weeks there routine is over. Somedays I feel a little misplaced out here, lots o' crazy hippies!, but everyday I'm getting more and more used to it. It's been a great experience so far!!

Here are some pics from the weekend my mom was here!
Dang blogger isn't loading pics, it'll have to wait.

I love Seatte...Starbucks, Top Pots, Chris & Zoe. I am very jealous and happy for you two. Not jealous enough to ride across country again though!!!

maybe Cascadia can join Vermont and we can eat ben and jerrys and drink coffee together. yum.
