Batik! The Musical

Hola darlins!!

I am here in Portland, OR and heading to my room for a nap before meeting some Reverend Chicks for dinner and an outing to {{{Enter angelic music}}} Powell’s Books.

Tomorrow: fanny pack patrol!

This queen of packs included two SIDE fanny pack pockets for an extra sporty look (and room for all those free pens and give aways, so popular at GA)….
