Welcome to The Week in Pictures! How was your week? I managed to do quite a bit of of exploring around Portland — it’s always nice to get back in touch with your hometown and be reminded of the things you love after a few weeks away. I’m loving the change in weather and the chance to bundle up.
Chubs spent a few weeks away at grandma’s house while Joey and I were traveling and when he returned, he was noticeably plumper. He’s obviously trying to live up to his name. 😉 I keep asking him if grandma was slipping him apple pie, mashed potatoes and gravy instead of the berries and almonds he usually gets fed at home.
It’s been interesting noticing how ingrained his instincts and mannerisms are since he’s never lived in the wild. He was a newborn when he fell down our chimney but still has typical squirrel characteristics which get very entertaining. He loves taking off with my pens and even funnier, when I have my hair pulled up, he climbs on top of my head and constantly buries nuts and crackers in it!
My mom is so awesome — not only do we get to work together at Branch but she also really gets my personal style. When she surprised me with this mug, I was over the moon. It’s so nice to be surrounded with meaningful basics.
Last night, I took my aunt to one of my regular haunts, Jackknife. It’s dimly lit with dark walls and marble countertops, the playlist is fantastic and their happy hour menu is pretty great. My drink of choice is the Melrose Brown (Dewar’s, Appleton, lime, ginger and sparkling wine).
This illustration on the side of Sizzle Pie cracks me up. Now, that’s a food pyramid I’ll gladly endorse!
I stopped by Nike to visit a friend for lunch and ended up spending the afternoon hanging out along….Lake Nike. Nike has a beautiful campus and the best cafeteria around — I’m always sad to leave.
I forgot to share this last week — I spotted this great floor somewhere in Chelsea last Monday. Major tile envy!
Have a wonderful weekend!
