Sorry I've been a bit MIA. I returned home last night after a long and much needed trip home to Salt Lake and a mini trip inside that vacation to Portland/Vancouver. I didn't intend on being away for so long, but it was nice to unplug and enjoy some time with friends and family.
I'm not even going to attempt to fit my entire vacation in one post, so the my next few posts will be sort of a photo dump (Salt Lake > Portland > Salt Lake) with some stories along the way!
Thursday: This little lady never approves of my departure.
Between the airport and my opa's work, my moms car broke down and this happened.
So there is this store called the NPS that my opa is particularly obsessed with and EVERYTHING is on sale. They carry damaged items or items that don't sell well; everything from clothing to electronics to an entire warehouse of food.
Anyone else remember these juice barrels?!
That's not creepy?
Toilet paper anyone?
Of course if you can get 5lbs of fresh tomatoes for under $1, homemade salsa is in order.
...and opa makes his infamous homemade tortillas weekly.
Dinner with Tiffany at my favorite sushi restaurant, Tsunami!
Haaaaaaaaaaalt! Saw this as we were leaving, obvious photo opportunity.
I FaceTime with my cat, don't judge me.
Friday: slice of Great Harvest cinnaburst and soy mocha
...with Nick Party.
Chill out bb girl.
and finally Meditrina with my mama. The baseball game was going on across the street so the wait was atrocious, but worth it in the end--love this place!
Basilico and patatas bravas. Not pictured: grilled granny smith arugula salad, parmesan bruleed artichoke and curry lime prawns.
Bruleed bananas with nutella mousse. (better photos from another visit to Meditrina here)
See you tomorrow for Foodie Friday, in Portland!
