Guess what I will be doing in the next five days? If you guessed trying out for the Portland Trail Blazers then you would be wrong. I’m too short and not particularly athletic. At least not anymore. But I am taking part in a special fund-raiser event for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation. For five days, I will be driving around in a new Chevy Equinox (this is a fabulous SUV) while shopping around the city for awesome items to be raffled off in the Chevy Shop Social: Portland. The special event will take place in Pioneer Square on May 21st (6pm to 8:30 pm).
The best holiday of the year is just around the corner. That’s right, it’ll be Halloween in less than three weeks. I’ve been taking the kids around town to check out the latest Halloween props. What a big disappointment. All the stores we went to, except for one, didn’t really have any cool Halloween decorations. It’s like they decided to scale back on Halloween so they could focus on Christmas instead. I can’t believe they’re messing with my favorite holiday of the year. Spirit Halloween was the exception. They have just as much cool (if not more) Halloween stuff as last year.
