Run Away Weekend - Portland Syle

   This weekend, Joe and I decided to celebrate our anniversary with a run away weekend to Portland, OR.  We had a great time!  I don't know why we keep deciding to take vacations in February to cold places, but at least we had fun.  Joe enjoyed sampling some of the local brews and we both had a good time walking around and checking out everything.   Here are some highlights from our trip. :)

Cargo is an amazing store filled to bursting with all sorts of eclectic housewares, jewelry and other novelties.

Voodoo Doughnuts, "the magic is in the hole".  The building was actually painted with sparkles and the amount of sugar wafting out of this 24 hour doughnut shop is enough to give one a cavity! 


    Out of all the amazing choices from the display case, we ended up with Maple Bacon, Oreo Cream, Portland Cream and Mango Tango.  All we delicious, but we didn't finish more than half of each one between the two of us. :)

   We also went to Pittock Mansion (which I will share pictures of later) a fantastic knitting store called Knit Purl, where I got the most beautiful yarn and a ton of amazing boutiques which we either window shopped or actually went into.  Most places were really dog friendly, which was great because we brought the yorkie along with us.  All in all it was a great weekend and with Portland only being a 3 hour drive from Seattle, I can see myself planning another trip there sometime soon.  What do you think girls, interested in a Portland trip?
