We had an amazing weekend in Oregon. We reconnected with friends, visited the coast, experienced Portland, and ate more than anyone should in a single weekend.

Here are the highlights:

We spent the first 2 nights at a darling cottage in Seaside. We were happy to be reunited with the Pacific Ocean. It was cold but gorgeous!

We visited Haystack Rock

And had an ah-mah-zing seafood dinner 

We visited a ship wreck 

And the place where Goonies was filmed . . . a creepy little town called Astoria. 

The next day we went to the Tillamook cheese factory 

And then took Portland by storm. 

Of all the places we ate, VooDoo Doughnuts was my favorite. I'm not exaggerating when I say their maple bar made me weak in the knees. Sooo good.

In 2007 we dubbed ourselves the Haleiwa Hussies and we have been close ever since. I didn't know any of these people before I moved to Hawaii and they have all changed my life for the better. We have been on several vacations together and I can't wait for the next one! Love you guys!

Portland looks like a dream city. I can only imagine what suggestions Stefon from SNL would have to share. We're going to need to set up an induction ceremony so Tommy and I can join your traveling show...

Good luck with the move this weekend!! We'll be thinking of you...

You all look so cute in these photos (boys included). Glad you enjoyed my favorite state! It's so pretty there. Tell me you loved the drive to the coast as much as I do. It's beeeaautiful.

Beautiful photos - glad you had such a good time! Brett and I loved it so much that we're planning to move there next summer. Hopefully that will give you just one more excuse to go back often!

That cottage! So much cuteness. Glad to see the Hussies have reunited. Sharla & Gentry are such beauties. The only bad thing about this post is the doughnuts. Why must you torture your readers that way?
