vacation bender, day 1

my mom (martha) came into town last wednesday night to hang out with lee and i. i do not think we stopped moving or eating the entire time. thursday morning we headed to milwaukie (oregon) to pick up my prize gift basket from the dave’s killer bread store. between the 3 of us, we sampled […]


last weekend lee and i took the pups to dogtoberfest. it’s an event held every year to raise money for an emergency vet here in portland. it’s held at the lucky lab brew pub in the SE. they were doing a big dog wash and had food (hot dogs), beer and music. and a million […]


recently lee dusted off her japanese cooking skills and made one of our faves. okonomiyaki. it’s like a japanese pancake of deliciousness. it consists of cabbage, noodles, ginger, green onions and some batter-y stuff and topped with japanese style bacon and egg. sounds weird and it is. but oh so good. especially when it’s cooked […]

SE pdx continued

the whole point of our SE pdx adventure was because lee wanted to go to the japanese crepe place called mojo crepes. the place was in an asian area of town. it’s a japanese crepe place but no one was japanese in there. the dude working was chinese. should have been our first hint. there […]


heat. sweltering heat. the last few days have been unbearable. yesterday – 98 degrees, today – 100 degrees. all would be peachy if we had AIR CONDITIONING. but no….no we don’t. so our little apartment turns into an oven.  an oven that doesn’t cool down until 2am. tomorrow the heat advisory is ending in the […]

a grilled cheese never tasted so good

until i went to the grilled cheese grill. it’s a food cart in the NE alberta arts district that has an old converted school bus for it’s dining room. i now know why it is packed every time i pass it and why the line was so long. it’s nothing fancy but it was deliciously […]

gluttony goodness

today was lee’s last day in portland so we decided to go have a last meal. and it was a feast to say the least. let’s be honest….we crushed it. we went to pine state biscuits. a place that comes with high recommendations. first, 3 dudes from NC own it and many of my friends […]

department of no moving lines

i’ve been studying the oregon handbook in order to get my oregon license. i believe it might be my least favorite thing to do.  or one of them. i hate the dmv. i mean, HATE the dmv. i remembering studying for the california one after being told that it was notoriously hard. and it was. […]


ventured out yesterday to the NW area of portland. i agreed to do a return at REI for lee. and if you know me at all you’d know it was very sweet of me as i do not particularly enjoy REI. followed the gps and got on the 405. LA people will know what i’m […]

what a day…

woke up to thunderous noise in the bathroom of which i thought lee was home and about to do her hair. it sounded like she was digging around under the sink for the hair dryer. it was tons of banging around and it went on forever. i called out to her asking why she was […]
