Time for another ten things that made me happy this week! Linking up with Krysten & Lindsay and Andrea, Erika, & Narci.
Number One: Local Coffee
Michael and I went to two cute local coffee shops over the weekend (no pictures, womp womp). We went to Lionheart on Saturday morning. It was my second time (first time was when I met Stephanie!) and his first. I got an iced caramel latte and it was great. Sunday morning we went to Driftwood, which is super close to our apartment. I got an iced Rolo mocha (so chocolate and caramel--yes, I love iced coffee with caramel) and Michael got a honey lavender latte and holy smokes it's all I can think about. I absolutely would've gotten one this week on my way to work if the location was convenient for it at all, but it's not. On my list this weekend (and every subsequent weekend): get a honey lavender latte from Driftwood!
Number Two: Local Food
On Saturday morning, coffee in hand, we headed to the Beaverton farmer's market. We actually went in the summer one day when we were scoping out places to live and happened to stumble upon it. It's every Saturday in the summer, and every other Saturday in the winter. We got ingredients to make dinner and I swear it all just tasted about twenty times better than stuff from the grocery store. The onion we bought was about the size of my head, and so good. We also bought some green chorizo, green onions, and mini potatoes. Michael is a soup master, so he made us a delicious creamy chorizo and potato soup. It was a little bit spicy from the chorizo. I could handle it, but kind of wish it was a tiny bit less spicy. It was so so good, and the only non-local ingredients used were the cream and the olive oil the chorizo was cooked in.
Number Three: Suckers
Michael and I keep buying these dang suckers at the grocery store. We really shouldn't because we may as well just be eating spoonfuls of sugar, but dang, they're good. Strawberry banana wasn't my favorite flavor of the ones I had, it's just the one I took a picture of.
Number Four: No More Office
When I transferred to the Portland branch, I was given an office. My first office ever. I felt super important and it was nice because I could run my heater constantly and I had a window and I could obnoxiously eat my apples in a secluded area. They just hired someone with a fancier job than me (he started on Monday), so I had to move to a cubicle. I actually like it a lot better, because the office was isolating. Now I get to sit next to the only other woman in the office and we get to complain about stuff together (I hadn't gotten to know her at all before moving to the cubicle) and I can also eavesdrop on stuff that people are saying. #nosy
Number Five: Blogger Love!
Two mornings this week I got Twitter notifications that two other awesome bloggers had shared posts of mine! Lexi shared this post and Julie shared this one and you guys...both of them called me funny. One of my favorite things ever is people thinking I'm funny. If you think I'm funny, I want to be your best friend (other ways to become my best friend: buy me coffee, chocolate, or baked goods). [Don't worry, I'll also be someone's best friend for non-superficial reasons.] I am now vowing to share my favorite posts more. I love when bloggers round up some of their favorite posts and blog about them, and I also really need to start using Twitter more, so I hope to actually remember to get to sharing posts. (Also go check out Lexi's blog (she just moved from Colorado to Sacramento, finally ending the long-distance part of her relationship, annnd her job sounds fabulous) and Julie's blog (she just had a baby boy and he is so so precious!).
