Phew, what a weekend! Mike had different friends visiting from the Bay Area, so it felt like we were all over the place. Thankfully, we went to bed fairly early last night, otherwise, I don’t know how I would be functioning today. It’s always great to see friends and family when they visit, but it’s also nice to get back to your normal routine, you know what I mean?

Can’t go to Pine Street Market without getting my favorite Roasted Strawberry Coconut ice cream

Friday we headed downtown for National Donut day. I figured, what better excuse to get my favorite vegan donuts and head to our favorite coffee shop than a made up holiday. Well, we were way too late because Blue Star Donuts was sold out of donuts. How does that even happen? You would think they would make even more on their own holiday. The one on 23rd was completely sold out and the one on Washington St. was sold out of vegan donuts. Not cool, at all. We ended up at Barista coffee shop with a couple vegan pastries from Whole Foods, which were completely underwhelming. We perused the Pearl District before meeting up with Mike’s friends for lunch at Pine Street Market. We ended the night at Pizzicato in Lake Oswego with Mike’s other friends who were visiting with their two little girls. Just writing this is making me full. Way too much eating for sure!
Saturday we headed to the Lake Oswego Farmers Market. Honestly, I can’t believe we’ve never been. I thought it was going to be small, but it’s the complete opposite. It’s pretty big and there’s a ton of amazing vendors with so many great food options. I don’t recall the name of the flower vendor, but they were amazing. They were making huge bouquets for $20. Everything was absolutely gorgeous. I’ll be sharing more photos from the farmers market soon, so stay tuned. We worked off Friday’s food binge by playing tennis with my aunt’s family. I haven’t played since last summer, so it was nice to get back out there (mind you, Mike and the Vedder family play every week). I must say, staying active by playing a sport is my absolute favorite.

Sunday we met up with Mike’s friends at the Oswego Hills Winery. This is one of my favorite places in the summer. The grounds are beautiful, there’s wine by the glass, and you can bring your own picnic. It’s super relaxing and extremely kid friendly. From there, my aunt and I made our way up the road to get our nails done. I typically stick with white in the summer, but of course I tried something different and ended up hating the color on my fingers. The gentleman also didn’t do a great job. I really need to find one person that I love and stick with them because this is getting a little ridiculous. That’s two times in a row, I haven’t been happy with my nails. Does this ever happen to you? Would love any nail salon tips you have. We capped off the weekend watching game 2 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors are looking good, although I’m not getting too excited as this was the same situation we were in last year and we all know what happened.
Alright, that’s enough of my blabbing. How was your weekend? Can you believe it’s already June? It’s crazy how fast time flies, but I think it’s been even worse this year considering we never got spring. It felt like winter just a month ago… I hope summer lasts until October this year.
