Little Things Lately ...

Soaking-In ... Sun-Saturated rooftop bars as much as we possibly can.

Watching ... "The Bachelor" on demand and happy to see Lauren B. reppin' my hometown so well! Portland is usually only highlighted as a place for weirdos, which bugs the ever-living s&*@ outta me.

Waiting ... to give Chandler the okay to start eating. As we tell him repeatedly: We eat dinner as a family. So he will stand near his food (as seen in background of pic, which is the main reason I took it), wait for us to get situated, declare "Okay Chandler, eat!" and then we will all start satiating away. Unless we tell him it's okay to eat, he will not touch his food. Ughhhhh, he's cute.

Loving ... new spaces, new faces and all the people I know now since moving here.

 Obsessing ... over my loves as they cuddle together on a soggy Sunday (Chandler was fast asleep until he heard me take my phone out, dangit). But they are my favorite beings, who remind me forever that I am home.

Crunching ... on belVita breakfast biscuits. In no way is this even a remotely sponsored comment, those thing are just insannnneellllyyyyy good.

Relishing ... in San Francisco's many, many, many happy hours. So many spots, so many eats.

Flying ... home tonight!!! Super excited to spend a short Friday-Sunday in Portland.

 Happiest Weekend!

I so need a sunlit rooftop bar my life! My husband and I only get to do that at a few places in the summer they're just aren't that many around here! I think we need to move to San Fran, LOL! I love those dang little biscuits too. Have a safe trip home and a lovely lovely weekend gorgeous!

Your pup is just TOO cute!! We have been working with ours too, having him wait until we say "ok" to eat - he's always just SO excited for food! lol ;) Have a great trip to Portland! xx

Pat Hatt said...

Wow, you have him trained very well. Not many dogs will wait to eat. Hope you have a great weekend home visiting.

Lauren said...

Your dog has amazing self control. I don't like to have to wait to eat once food is in front of me :)

From Portland and living in San Francisco? That seems like two great cities to call home!

Chandler is such a cutie and so well behaved! I don't think that Dart would ever wait if he had the opportunity to eat a doggy treat! The Bachelor is getting so good! I have The Women Tell All special sitting on my DVR and I can't wait to watch it this weekend! Have a great time at home this weekend!

How stinkin' adorable that Chandler waits to eat as a family! I'm a little too excited for the Bachelor finale on Monday, and loved seeing your hometown on it a few weeks ago! Happy Friday and have an amazing trip home <3

I can't believe how well-behaved your dog is! SO CUTE. I definitely think Ben is going to pick Lauren! He just seems too smitten with her to choose JoJo!

Emily said...

You know i could always use a little happy hour in my life...I bet San Fran has some good spots. I've been to a a happy hour there and the place was packed!! Wish I could remember the name.

How does your dog have the restraint!! My dogs never wait for anything, they are so dang impatient!!! Hope you have fun in Portland!

Elle Sees said...

that is precious about chandler. my dog pops up or looks away the instant the phone comes out.

Melissa @ Always, Lissa said...

I don't think I've ever heard of a dog being so well-trained that he waits to eat ... well other than the professionally trained ones that is.

I'm so glad you get to come back to the Pacific Northwest, even for only just a short visit. Have a blast!

julie @ jewelswandering.com said...

That's so cute that he waits until you let him eat...! I met another dog who would wait too and thought that was so sweet!! Hope you had fun in Portland!!

Jaclyn said...

I hope you enjoyed your weekend visit!! And, yes, even Chandler needs to wait for everyone to eat. Lol

I'm pretty jealous of any city (which is basically every city) that has a happy hour because we dont have one here!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
