Do tell, oh neighbors-to-the- north: does the new program Portlandia change the way you refer to yourselves? Are you now Portlandians, or do you remain Portlanders?
My husband and I lived in Portland for about 7 years. Our daughter was born in there (okay, Milwaukie, technically). We moved to Bend for a lovely 18 month period, where our first son was born. We moved to Eugene thereafter, where our second son was born.
We’re not moving anymore.
I will be making the trek at the end of this month to the Expo Center in Portland for the Better Living Show, which (if the last couple years is any measure) is bound to be a great time.
Many good reasons to go….
Admission is free, and here’s why: the Better Living Show organizers want to counter the impression that “green = expensive.”
A wonderful kid’s pavilion!
The weather will not improve, so while you’re waiting for a break in the rain to mess about in the garden, you can pick up some new gardening tips and ideas.
1,001 ways to green your home!
I’ll be having my annual drawing for a free lunchbox in any size and any color, but you have to stop by the booth to enter.
Enjoy a 20% discount on every Lunchsense lunchbox set purchased at the Better Living Show!
You can train, bus or bike to the show, but if you must drive you get a buck off parking if you carpool (3 or more).
If you don’t make it to the show but do “like” us on Facebook, you will help your friends who order later – if we reach our goal on Facebook we will offer $5 flat rate shipping for all of April!
Lots of other presentations!
Did I mention food samples?
Last but not least, a fabulous lineup of lunchboxes!
Check here for a slideshow of last year’s event, stop by booth 529 and say hello, and maybe even walk away with a marvelous new lunchbox while you’re at it.
‘Hope to see you there!
