Portland, Oregon


After three-ish fabulous days in Eugene we headed back to Portland to play with Adam. We checked into our hotel and found something interesting waiting for me.


This envelope with a "CONFIDENTIAL" stamp on it, dun, dun, dun! For reasons unknown to us all, I somehow managed to get Brooke and I free breakfast vouchers at the hotel {it was fabulous!} as well as $100 off my next stay at the Marriott of my choice! I am never this lucky, I think it had something to do with being in the same vicinity as Adam.

While waiting for Adam to get off work I opened our hotel room curtains to see the view. It was uh-may-zing! I couldn't help but notice though, this view.


Uh, yeah ... You could see directly into the apartment across the street. At one point I saw a man go into the bathroom and saw him lift the toilet seat. At which point I began laughing hysterically, turned the other way and told Brooke. It was then I noticed a woman in the apartment over on the bed.

"Please tell me she is alone!" says Brooke.

"Uhm, she's not ..."

"Please tell me she's on the bed alone," says Brooke.

"She is - oh, wait. A man just got onto the bed with her."

Don't worry folks, they were just reading a book and the paper. Thanks to this experience, Brooke and I made sure our curtains were closed. :)

After stalking the neighbors, Brooke and I did a little shopping while waiting for Adam. I found myself a happy, happy owl shirt. I felt it was very Oregon-ish.

When we did meet up with Adam we went the most well-known and famous restaurant in town. It has been there since the 1800s.


Don't worry ... I will not tell you how much we each spent on our dinner because Brooke told me to just forget about it. And I am trying too. :) It was very yummy though. :)

After dinner Adam took us to Voodoo Donuts. It was in a very sketchy part of town with transients just sitting there, asking for money and food.


And here is photo documentation of why Voodoo Donuts is called Voodoo Donuts.



Hahaa! Isn't that fantastic? They have all sorts of crasy donuts. Maple bars with bacon {tried it ... only because Adam demanded that I did}, Captain Crunch donuts, Fruit Loop Donuts, and my favorite ... Oreo with peanut butter donuts! Yum!


We decided to wrap the night up early as to hit the road early the following day to head to ...

I saw voodoo donuts on Man vs. Food. I'm jealous you went there. P.S. I lost count.

This is awesome. How is it that you always seem to run into more funny and crazy things than anyone else I know? You just MAKE life fun, is what I think. Love the apartment watching and the donut.
