Oh Lady Date

It has been like FOREVER that I just had a fun artsy day out with one of my good lady friends.  I call it a lady date because it's like a date but with of your friends :).  You dine, check out some artsy type things and of course treasure hunt!
We needed fuel- so of course no lady would be complete with out a cheese burger and sweet potato fries.  SO delicious and if you watch Portlandia- yes they did label what farm the cow came from and all the paper was recycled and went in the compost bin.
Then we decided to look into a few local shops of crafty like products.  We went over to the new Crafty Wonderland shop- which is a shop that has all crafty like things from Portland Crafters.  The shop is sooo super amazing with awesome etsy finds.  They have a yearly super colossal sale at Christmas time, and I camp it out with friends every year for the free goodie bag!  If your in P-town next year at Christmas time- you can come camp sale with me. 
Then we decided to go to the Portland Art Museum and they had several Monet paintings on exhibit.  They were of course gorgeous as always.  PAM was setting up for the new Lichtenstein exhibit and I snuck a picture in.  Lichtenstein was the guy with the bendi dots, and had a long pony tail.  He is kinda amazing.
Then of course we visited the gift shop- where they had owl hats and of course I had to try one on. What do you think?
I went home inspired and stuffed of cheese burger- such a perfect lady date.

PS I am in two treasuries on Etsy :) Turquise is the winter color. and Painters on Etsy

What an awesome day! Indianapolis is becoming more artsy. Maybe one day it'll be as nice as Portland.
