Back from vacation --- thank you for your patience!

Just wanted to say thanks for your patience while I completely unplugged during my short vacation (I had limited wi-fi access at times, so I completely unplugged from the Internet .... and tv, too).  

Also wanted to say thank you very much to the wonderful State of Oregon -- because I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Astoria, Newport and Portland.   A special thanks to Powell's City of Books for simply existing --- can I say how wonderful it felt to wander around, surrounded by other people who love to read????   Oh yeah .... it's like Book Nirvana.

I was very good and kept my purchases under $40......

And another special thank you to Voodoo Doughnuts ---- I don't usually like doughnuts (the last time I ate one was probably 6 years ago ... maybe) and now, I am a Voodoo devotee.   I am already pining for another bacon maple bar......     which kinda sucks, since I live outside of Chicago and don't have any way to get another of these .... although my hips and butt will thank me for not eating more doughnuts.
So .... back now at home, and although I'm in for an 8-straight-day work stretch starting tomorrow, I'm looking forward to doing some reading, and some blogging, and trying to get through the 2000+ things in my Google Reader.    I was able to post two reviews yesterday, but now, I'll be back on my regular schedule.

Have a wonderful rest of the week, everyone!!!!

I've heard so many good things about Voodoo doughnuts. And, I still haven't tried bacon on anything sweet yet. But, I imagine it was heavenly on a maple bar as I love it when my maple syrup gets all over my bacon.

I'm glad you had a great vacation. I love Oregon. It's so beautiful there!

Sounds like you had an awesome vacation!! I've always wanted to go to Oregon and Washington--maybe one day.

Where are you from and what in the blazes brought you to Oregon LOL :). I live in the Willamette Valley so I get to enjoy Powell's and Voodoo Donuts on a regular basis so I guess I'm lucky....haven't quite gotten into the whole bacon maple bar thing yet, I like my maple bars without bacon :). Powell's Books is like the book lovers haven!! I don't miss Borders or BN whatsoever!! I go up to Powell's at least once a month....I could literally spend and entire day there :). Astoria is a fun costal city too (especially if you are a Goonies fan!). Glad you had a nice time, do visit again!!
