a very gluttonous weekend.

Pai Men because I'm a creature of habit.

An understated filet at the Grill Room.

Oysters and wine at Eventide.

I didn't plan on eating my way through Portland this weekend, but that's what happened and I'm not mad about it.

After a very stressful week, I decided to go to my old faithful Pai Men for dinner on Friday and I got the usual. Eventually I'll try something new, but why mess with a good thing? I also finished the book You which was super creepy (I had started watching the show on Lifetime before I realized there was a book - both are good and cringe inducing).

Saturday consisted of Pure Barre and an insane amount of laundry, and then I treated myself to dinner (treating myself was a recurring theme throughout the weekend). I sauntered down to the Grill Room, and had a perfect and leisurely dinner of crab and pea shoot salad, a bacon wrapped filet over mashed potatoes with blue cheese, mushrooms and asparagus, and then topped the night off with apple fritters with butter pecan gelato that I enjoyed in the comfort of my living room.

After cleaning my place Sunday morning I went to Eventide for oysters, a lobster roll, and clam chowder. I hadn't been there since my sibling rendezvous earlier this summer, and it was just as good as I remembered (the key is getting there right when they open and grabbing a spot at the bar). I did a little shopping at Anthropologie and took advantage of their 25% off sale by buying jeans and a candle, and then I bought some faux leather leggings at Athleta that I'm really excited about--I had wanted to buy some for a while and these have the perfect look and texture (but be warned, they run big so size down).

And that was pretty much it--I was kind of all over the place but it was the perfect mix of hanging at home and being out - a truly great weekend in Portland.
