schoolhouse electric + ristretto roasters

If you follow me on instagram, you probably already saw this last photo with a brief recap of my weekend. Here's a less brief recap.

Like I said, I went to Portland to see friends, do some shopping, see family and eat good food.

I met up with Allegra for coffee, it's so fun to meet insta friends and find out how much you have in common in real life!

I saw my BFF Abby, always necessary to catch up with her. 

I stopped by West Elm and ordered a couch! I received a hand-me-down love seat from my Aunt years ago and that's what we've been using ever since we moved in, over a year and a half ago! So excited for a real couch! It'll be here in three weeks. Let the decorating begin.

I stopped by Madewell for a few essentials, new jeans {they have a promo, if you donate a pair of old jeans, any brand, you get $20 off a new pair. Yes, please. It goes through the end of the year}, a sweater and an upgrade to my keys, a new keychain. 

That night I had dinner with my aunt. After a long brainstorming session, we decided on Olympic Provisions in SE. It was definitely a hit! We got a charcuterie board with three additional small plates and it was so delicious. I can't wait to go again and try even more things! We ended our night with dessert at Papa Haydn in Sellwood, another place I had never been before. I loved sitting outside. And getting pumpkin spiced bread pudding. It was so fun to hang out with my Aunt, I loved it.

On Sunday morning, I met up with Rachel at Ristretto Roasters in Schoolhouse Electric. Again, so fun to meet insta blog friends in real life! I had such a great time chatting, already looking forward to the next time. And Schoolhouse. So amazing, I could live there and be a very happy woman. 

Once Jeff and I were both home in Salem, we stopped by Starbucks and got his car washed. I loved sitting in the sun while we waited for his car. It was a great weekend!
