We had a whirlwind weekend, traveling to LA Wednesday night through Saturday morning, flying home to Portland Saturday morning and then driving straight to Seattle for . . . the NORTHWEST REGIONAL EMMYS, which my husband was nominated for!!! We landed in Portland just before noon and drove straight to our hotel just in time to get gussied up for cocktail hour. It was a beautiful black tie event held in a casino – drinking, gambling and formal wear, yes please! Sadly Nick didn’t win but a friend of ours did in a different category which was pretty exciting. Needless to say I was incredibly proud of Nick for even getting a nomination.
