Well this week has gotten interesting, hasn’t it? As you may know, my full time gig is working at Intel out in Hillsboro. So needless to say, Wednesday got a bit funky for me. After spending a few hours at the gym and grabbing dinner in an attempt to wait out the traffic, it appeared that was a lost cause. Google Maps still showed dark red everywhere with an expectation of 2+ hours home! My friend Rachel and her husband Alex were superstars and generously let us be unexpected house guests super late at night. So at least we didn’t need to sleep in our car!
Holy cow, is it really Thanksgiving week?! How did that happen? What are you kids up to for the holiday? Hope you’ll be eating lots of delicious food and celebrating with friends or family!
Brice and I are heading down to sunny LA for an impromptu mini-vacay, where we’ll be joining in a Friendsgiving on Thursday, playing by the beach, and (fingers crossed!) getting food at places like Sqirl and Baroo.
While Brice is always trying to escape the rainy days of Oregon winter, I’m occasionally a fan of the dreary skies. I am all about getting cozy in a big scarf and placing myself next to a fireplace with a good book and warm beverage. As I’m not a coffee drinker, I dig the tea latte trend. Similar to your standard latte, it’s got steamed milk mixed with brewed tea rather than espresso. It is creamy, rich and flavorful from the tea. Perfect for a cold day.
Well, this has been one crazy week, hasn’t it?
Election aside (let’s avoid that topic on here, shall we?!), I also managed to get myself sent to urgent care, getting numerous xrays after being a total klutz, tripping while at the gym and landing all my weight on my elbow. Ugh… so this post will be a bit shorter in words, as typing one-handed is shockingly time consuming (as are easy everyday tasks like getting dressed or opening a jar of Talenti ice cream!).
As it has been a bit since my last seasonal “Favorites” post, I’ve got plenty of new hotspots to share! Where have you been this fall? What are you loving?
