It feels so good to be back in my hood! I’ve been in and out for a couple months now, so with a full weekend in town with no real plans, I ate and drank my way back home. I took the day off Friday and kicked off my food tour with smoothies with my dad at Prasad. Yum! Have you tried it? I stopped in at Gourmet Productions for lunch, and then headed to the east side for yogi, drinks at The Richmond Bar and dinner at Ava Gene’s. Let me pause there, and mention that if you haven’t been to Ava Gene’s yet, please do so immediately.

Nat and I brunched at Verdigris, a quaint little French-inspired bistro on NE Fremont on Saturday morning, and then Allen and I tried Fish Sauce later that day for early dinner. Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwiches ensued, and on to Sunday for Lovejoy Bakers, Mexican food and more Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwiches. Now that’s my kind of weekend.

Spring is comin’ friends, it’s comin’.

Hey, how you doin’? I am in a good mood today, not only because the weather is supposed to be INSANE, but because my favorite buddy and blog partner is finally back from her weeks-long trip to China. Kels and I are headed to new NE PDX spot Verdigris for brunch on Saturday, where we’ll likely play catch-up for hours with barely a bite in between. Hahahahaha just kidding, I’ll obviously be stuffing my face and talking with my mouth full because I don’t compromise when it comes to food and girl chat.

What are you up to this weekend? Anything fun?

Can you believe it’s already the end of March?! Time is flying by at warp speed these days, but at least that means summer is on its way, and with it, longer days, more outdoor adventures, and a generally slower pace. (Summer hours anyone?) Hope you had a great month, and here are a few links we’re browsing lately…

A genius styling tip.

This music concierge app is a game-changer. The “morning inspiration: rap and R&B” station is a personal favorite.

When owners start to resemble their pets.

Need these shorts for summer.

A beautiful kitchen makeover.

There have been moments when I would easily pay double (even triple) for this service.

This sandal trend is everywhere right now.

Made us laugh.

Pinned just about every one of the recipes in this collection.

J.Crew in a tube. Yasssss.

Coveting---RosheGrey is hands down my favorite color, particularly when it comes to my wardrobe. I have about a zillion grey jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, tanks, tees and jeans, but somehow, I have never owned a pair of grey shoes. I know, I’m as shocked as you are. But that all ends here, because the second these Nike Roshe Flyknits become available in grey, you best believe I am adding that sh*t to cart.

Cool story bro.
