Pictures of the Week – Week 1 (2014)
The first Pictures of the Week for 2014! For the uninitiated, every Saturday I share some of my favorite pictures from the past week. Typically, the pictures I share on Saturday are ones that have not been shared during the week via my social media networks. If you are not already connected with me, I invite you to follow me on Twitter or Instagram and/or add me on Facebook – those are the three I use the most.
Last Saturday, the twins and I went out to Mt. Hood with their sister and her husband. The snow was present, but had frozen just enough to be annoying. They all did pretty well getting a bit up the hill, but then had some trouble getting back down.
Then again, I was the one who fell that day…
On Saturday night, the twins and I went to a concert at Doug Fir Lounge – these are the stamps they gave us when we walked in. I decided we HAD to get a picture of our stamps together because why not?
On Tuesday, we went out to Slappy Cakes for breakfast, because sometimes you just want to pay $8 to make your own breakfast at a restaurant after waiting an hour. During the wait, we walked down to Saint Cupcake and bought cupcakes on their last day.
This vintage store I love on Hawthorne has endless file cabinets (okay, three) of pictures. I love looking through them and finding treasures and wondering about these specific, particular moments some person in the past wanted to capture. This one was beautiful. I kinda wanted to buy it, but then I did not. I do not know why I did not…probably should have.
Tartberry is the most positive and happy frozen yogurt place I have ever been to! They have all these little squares of papers and pens available and you can leave a note for future frozen yogurt eaters to read – whether it be “this place rocks!” or some encouraging, inspiring thing.
NYE Mirror selfie, with the twins. Not really sure this needs more explanation.
Our 2nd annual NYE picture at Pioneer Square
I love the lights on Morrison. No photograph quite captures the magic.
