Over the weekend, while it was pouring down rain and a whopping 50 degrees outside, I convinced Josh to go on a spontaneous ice cream date. Aren't those the best kind?! Actually any ice cream date is the best kind. Salt & straw is definitely the best ice cream you'll find in Portland. I have to exercise self-control so I don't end up there every day. I just love the unique flavors...(some are crazy.. see the menu up there?) I picked honey lavender this time (which was TOO DIE FOR..) and Josh got chocolate brownie. I have my eye on the lemon basil sorbet for next time.. which I hope is sooner than later.



All you locals that have never been, you need to go stat! And if you're ever visiting Portland, put salt & straw at the top of your Must-go list.

Happy Monday to you all.

one last advent date..

We put a starbucks giftcard to good use and decided on one last advent calendar date for the season. I had already had coffee so I got a peppermint hot chocolate which pretty much tastes like a melted peppermint patty.. not bad! I was also hoping for a cakepop but they were sold out!
Farewell advent calendar activities.. till next year!
one last..

soda dates

Josh and i discovered a soda place a few blocks down from our house that has become one of our favorite simple date places. (sidenote: we've been going on lots of fun dates lately, making up for lost time!) Now I'm not a soda drinker in terms of regular soda (ie: coke, sprite, ect) but i love me a specialty soda, made with cane sugar and natural flavors like juice (what a concept!). One of my favorites is Dry soda, i LOVE the lavender one. The one below was lemongrass and it was also great.

We went again yesterday and i got Thomas kemper bumble berry, with hints of honey and vanilla.. SO GOOD!
