Knowing that it was my last day of vacation, my heart broke with complete sadness. As I sat in the living room drinking what would be my last cup of homemade latte, I stared out the window and imagined myself in a sad music video as the rain continued to pour outside. I fell head-over-heels in love with Portland before I even got to Portland. But, we made the most of the day by walking around some more, checking out some local shops, and also hitting this sweet arcade. Ps. I beat him in Mortal Kombat. Hell yeah, baby!
After the Falcon's lost to the Patriots and stuffing ourselves with pizza after pizza, we ended the night watching his dad's favorite movie: Top Gun. I'll admit that I'm not a huge Tom Cruise fan, but the soundtrack to the movie was killer.
It was a challenge to wake up early the next day and get a good start on our drive back down. We stopped over at his alma mater, University of Oregon. It was nostalgic to be back on campus grounds and to roam the halls and buildings he spent years at. Made me miss school. Yeah, I miss learning, so what? Lol. We ate an early lunch at this cute joint, Little Big Burger. After a few bites in, I claimed Little Big Burger to be better than In-N-Out. And I don't eat burgers a lot, but damn they were delicious!
The drive wasn't that bad until we got to Redding where it poured some serious heavy sideways rain. We grabbed dinner at this Thai restaurant that helped filled our tired tummy's for the remainder of the trip. Walking back to the car in the rain was hilarious because we both left our jackets in the car because the rain had stopped, thinking that it wasn't going to rain anymore. Oh, how wrong we were. Also, we parked across the way because we were initially going to eat somewhere else. AND as we ran up to the car, we didn't know there was a massive puddle and our shoes got soaked. Ah, fun memories!
The best thing about coming home after being on vacation is the comfort of your own bedroom and bed. I slept so good that night, but cried the next morning because I had work early. Anyways, I'm hungry so I'm going to end it here and grab dinner.
Hope you enjoyed reading my adventures in Oregon!
Can't wait to see where we'll go next! xx
