Shortly after Eric came home from the suck fest, he planned a romantic weekend getaway for him and I in Portland Oregon! He is usually horrible at keeping secrets but he did such a good job on this and I had a BLAST! We stayed at the Paramount Olympic Hotel in downtown and it was really nice! I forgot to take a picture of the hotel though! 

As I may have mentioned before, Eric LOVES micro brewed beer and is always looking for his next favorite! One of his top brewers is Rogue and they happen to have a restaurant in Portland so we headed there when we got in town.

Here is my sexy husband at Rogue trying to decide what to eat.
 Weather you drink or don't drink, Rogue has some of the BEST food I have ever eaten so next time your in town, do yourself a favor and go eat there!
Here he is with a brew!
 Before we left for our trip, he told me that I needed to buy something nice to wear so my best friend and younger sister and I went shopping at Macy's and I found the most amazing dress even though I had no clue where we were headed. After lunch at Rogue we headed back to the hotel for a little nap and relaxation then it was time to get ready!

Eric all dressed up and ready to go! He even let me give him a fo-hawk which I think looked so awesome on him!
Here is a picture of my dress, I felt like a million bucks!!

Another pic of me all dressed up!
 He took me to see a production of SOUTH PACIFIC and I had such a blast! The musical was amazing and he and I both had a great time. We sadly didnt get a picture of us in front of the signs together but I am so looking forward to going to more shows!

Eric and I after the show!
After the show we headed out to Old Time Pizza, which we had seen on TV a while back. It is an old hotel which is haunted by a prostitute who was killed there years and years ago. It had such a cool vintage feel and Im super bummed I didnt take pictures of the inside. Another place to check out! 
AMAZING pizza! The best I have ever had!
 After our late  night on the town, we headed back to the hotel for a good nights sleep. The following morning we headed out into Portland in search of the world famous VooDoo Doughnuts. We had heard about it from some friends of ours and then saw it on TV.
Eric not happy about the wait in line
 After about 45 minutes of waiting (totally worth it) we got to order! They have weird doughnuts but they are amazing! We got a few maple bacon bars, a couple voo doo doughnuts and a few others. 
Eric a little happier
After Doughnuts we headed around to a few of the local markets and just enjoyed a relaxing afternoon spending time with each other. I miss portland and hope to go back some day!

Aww, I'm so glad you've updated this thing!!! I'm on my way to Colorado this Friday! I'll be there a couple weeks and I better get to see you before I head back to Idaho! If worst comes to worst though, I'll be back mid-January. I'm glad you and Eric are so happy and adjusting to civilian life :)
