For the Cute Boy's birthday, we headed down to Portland for the weekend.
Here is how I would describe Portland- it's like Seattle's younger hipper brother. True story. It's a pretty laid back hip city.
Since neither of us have never actually seen the city we had a list of things that we wanted to see.
The first stop was at the Portland LDS Temple. The grounds were closed for cleaning so we were not allowed to walk around, but from what we saw, it was stunning.
We had dinner at Clyde Common. The food was amazing. Fresh, local and super yummy. We will be going back again when we are back in Portland.
We walked around Powell's Book Store, the world's largest independent book store. It's literally a whole city block. I could have spent hours there.
Salt at the theater near our hotel. It was short and entertaining and the movie theater was super cozy.

Belmont. We ate breakfast at Pine State Biscuits. I had the Reggie which was entirely insane and will most likely help with a future heart attack. Dude it was so yummy.

Can't wait to go back again! Unfortunately, we didn't hang out at any rose gardens. Definitely next time.
