I got the Voodoo Doll doughnut which is pretty much a chocolate bar in the shape of a person with crosses on the eyes and a pretzel through the heart. It was delicious!
After Voodoo Doughnuts we went to Powell's Bookstore which is this massively huge bookstore in Portland seriously if you can't find the book you want there I don't know where you would. After Powell's we headed over to the Lloyd Shopping Center which is a huge mall. Shopping in Oregon is awesome because there are no sales taxes. I got a really cute brown pencil skirt for only $20! Once we were all shopped out we headed back downtown and went to a restuarant Mikey had eaten at before however the name was changed, it is now called Santeria. They had really fresh mexican food and it was yummy. It was also attached to Mary's, a local strip club. You have to go through Mary's if you need to use the restroom. Needless to say neither of us needed to go to the bathroom while we were there. After a nap at the hotel we meet up with Travis and Alisha for dinner with their families and wedding party at a restuarant called Stanford's. It was delicious! Seriously best pasta I've had in a long time and the salad was so so good. On Saturday we took a day trip up to Seaside and Astoria . We went to the beach and strolled along main street shopping along the way in Seaside.
After Seaside we headed up to Astoria for a delicious lunch on the Columbia River. Mikey had the best clam chowder and a yummy salad with pears, candied almonds and a vinegarette. I had some sort of sushi-like appetizer that I can't even describe but it was so good! We will definately go eat there again if we are ever in Astoria.
With our tummies full we headed up to the Astoria Column. Little fun fact Astoria is where the movie Goonies was filmed. I can't remember how many stairs we had to climb to get to the top but it was a lot and after circling around and around by the time we got to the top I thought I was going to throw up. We only stayed up there for a few minutes cause I felt so sick but we managed to get some good pictures.
I pretty much slept on the way back to Portland to try to get rid of all the motion sickness. I was even more sick after circling even more down the stairs on the way down. When we got back to the hotel we got all dolled up and headed to Trav and Alisha's wedding. It was beautiful! The venue, the food, the decor...everything was perfect. Travis tried to be sneeky and had his classmate hide his car so we couldn't decorate it. We drove around looking for it and couldn't find it but I told Mikey let's just try one more time to go around this block and bam we found it! We got them good after that! All in all it was a really fun trip and we are so happy we got to go!
