Girls Getaway to Portland - Roses & Chelsea Handler

The next day started with a picnic brunch in the International Rose Test Garden, which overlooks the city. After we ate, we took a Roses Gone Wild tour, which is a guided walking tour of the garden. Although Kelly had toured the garden before, she raved about the tour and how much more she learned with the guide. The roses here are amazing and come in every color imaginable, except blue. To find out why there are no blue roses, you will have to take the tour.

Before the Chelsea Handler show, we stopped for appetizers at the Oswego Lake House, which provides great views of Lake Oswego. Then we were headed to see Chelsea Handler, my favorite comedian, at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Although Kelly wasn’t a huge fan of Chelsea, she was by the time we left. We bought her new book, Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me, got her to sign them and were thrilled with a fun night out (despite the Big Escape from the venue...way to go Kelly). The Schnitzer will never be the same.....we laughed the whole way home.
