Happy Friday! It’s crazy how fast time flies! It seems as if it was just yesterday we were preparing to head to the Pac Rim the night before the wedding with wedding party!
It’s been such a crazy and wonderful year filled with new memories.
For our One year anniversary we celebrated by heading down to Portland and Bellevue for the weekend. It’s sort of a tradition every year since it’s the place we got engaged.
Though I was preoccupied during the days, we were able to have enough down time before heading to dinner each night which is when i was able to take pics!
After spending the night at Federal Way, after 5 hours in traffic jams both on the way to Portland and then to the outlets, we spent the afternoon at the outlets. When we finally checked in to Paramount Hotel, we had enough time to get ready for dinner and chill for abit.
I bought this awhile back at one of the local stores near my place (a nice, quick walk by the way) Barefoot Contessa Boutique. I totally love the floral pattern of this skirt and hope to find the perfect opportunity to wear it.
The second day started with a brunch at the Imperial Restaurant located at Hotel Lucia, one of the many Kimpton boutique hotels. It had a good rating and was included in some of the lists of where to eat in Portland so we just had to try it out. It was good; the server that took our order accidentally typed ‘fries’ instead of ‘fried chicken’ that i ordered. It was an accident which was fine it happens and she was genuinely apologetic and didn’t bill us for the fries. Overall it was a good brunch! We spent the rest of the afternoon at the mall (with majority of it at BCBG for me lol). We went to Shigezo Izakaya for dinner, a place we frequent when in the city because we know we’ll always get good food. Then we made it to the lounge area of Swank & Swine for a couple of drinks.
We got ready early so that i could grab something at BCBG that I really wanted to go back for lol and then checked out after grabbing a quick bite and coffee at Starbucks. We stopped at Walmart and Cascade Station before driving back to Bellevue and check in at the Bellevue Hyatt. We had time to kill and chilled in our awesome suite! We went for a late night dinner at Joey’s and then went upstairs to chill with our Champagne and truffles!
