NNWM/24: Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Pretty laid back day for us today. For the first time in years, we did not host. We did not go anywhere, either. It ended up just being me, Tara, and Audrey – but that was alright. I found a small turkey at Chuck’s Produce (9.something lbs.) and we just downscaled everything else.Continue reading “NNWM/24: Happy Thanksgiving”

NNWM/23: Wednesday, Bloody Wednesday

Thanksgiving Eve! Can you believe it? Work productivity always takes a hit the day before a long holiday weekend, and today was no exception.

NNWM/19: Daydrinking

Today was a good day. We met up with our friend Chris at McMenamin’s Grand Lodge in Forest Grove in the morning. It had been a few months since we last saw her, so we had a lot of drinking catching up to do. OK, fine: drinking, too. What can I say? Their Bloody MarysContinue reading “NNWM/19: Daydrinking”

NNWM/18: Cobain Bonding

What a great way to spend a Monday night.  Records, alcohol, candles, and lava lamps.  It’s cold and windy outside, but cozy and warm in our apartment.  A close game of Gin (I didn’t win) and turkey tacos.  A typical Friday night that has turned into one of our favorites.  Mark calls it our MondayContinue reading “NNWM/18: Cobain Bonding”
