portland getaway

24 hours with no kids in Portland? Sign me up!
Chris and I had planned to celebrate our anniversary in Portland. Our anniversary was in July. But instead, we spent the  night before we were supposed to go cleaning puke up off the new carpet, so we decided to stay home and watch Camden be sick. Because that's more fun.

We finally got around to taking that anniversary trip four months later, thanks to my sister and my mom, who tag teamed watching the hooligans kids.

We ate food, went to THREE bike shops, and may have done a little shopping as well (clinique bonus time!). We may or may not have watched a movie at 7pm. In our room. Because we are partiers like that. And? We slept in, til like 7:30. 7:30 people!! Can you imagine?

First stop: Nordstrom Cafe of course! Tomato soup, half a turkey sandwich and green salad with their delicious dried cherry dressing. YUM!

Next stop: Macy's. Where Chris put his new track jacket on before we even left the store. Because he's cool like that.

Hungry headache. Fixed with a quick stop at Starbucks!

The first bike shop. (not the last)

We enjoyed our stay at the Westin.

And dinner at Fish Grotto (where neither of us ordered fish).

Mmmm, I love me a good burger, but that fry sauce? DISGUSTING.

I have a big crush on this wall at the Daily Grill in the Westin hotel.

Morning, Chris!

Mmmm, french toast.

We have no patience for your long lines, Voodoo.
