Things I'm Excited About In Portland!

I'm going to Portland for the first time this summer and I am so freaking excited.
  1. The train ride there!
    Because who doesn't love trains rides and waking up obscenely early?
  2. The adorable place we're staying!
    It has a claw foot tub, a fire pit, and you're allowed to smoke weed outside.
  3. Marijuana is totes legal
    This is something that I keep forgetting! It's going to be SO DANG NICE to not be an anxious wreck the whole time i'm there.
  4. Paxton Gate
    There's a super neat store I've been following on instagram for a few years called Paxton Gate. Not only are they in Portland, they're a five minute walk from our place!! Gonna buy so many cute dead things.
  5. Gravy
    Also within a 5 minute walking distance is a breakfast place called Gravy. As someone who hates eggs, it's hard to find somewhere that offers a variety of egg free breakfast foods, and this place has so many - including breakfast bowls with hashbrowns!! YES
  6. Streetlight Manifesto
    Aka, the entire reason I'm going down there in the first place. When I saw them last year, the sax player said I was what made the show. Do you know how surreal it is having a member of your favourite band say this to you? BAH
  7. Tasty foods
    Including doughnut places, but probably not the one you're thinking of.
  8. BEER
    SO MUCH BEER
  9. Adventuring
    Noah and I have never been to Portland and this is happening the same month as we move out, so it's going to be a pretty crazy time.
