I ‘m still on a friend high from Emma and Charlie’s visit! It was so great seeing them and spending so much time together! You can read all about their first few days visiting right here.
Their third and fourth days were spent being tourists in Portland and Seattle. We headed to Portland Saturday morning. We first hit up the Apple store so I could purchase an iPod without tax. While I didn’t want to spend all that money, I was happy to save some money by shopping tax free. We then ventured over to Cascade Brewery. Emma and Charlie had this as their number one thing to do while in Portland so we had to do it!
We arrived before they opened so Emma decided to snap a few photos.
This is our band photo. I look kind of angry
Fletch and I had to snag a photo too.
Once it was open we eagerly went in to enjoy some yummy tasters!
After our beer tasting we went off for a little shopping. While out Emma and I found a shirt that we both loved and had to have. Be on the lookout for a “How I Styled” collab soon!
After shopping we enjoyed ice cream from the scrumptious Salt and Straw. If you are ever in Portland you should definitely stop by!
We spent most of Saturday shopping and eating which is a perfect Saturday, in my opinion.
Sunday was our fun day in Seattle!! We got a ton of fun touristy activities done in our one day. We visited the Fremont Troll, did some shopping at the Fremont Street Market, visited Pike Place Market, grabbed coffee from the first ever Starbucks, ate oysters, took photos in front of the gum wall, and Emma and Charlie got a few selfies in front of the Space Needle. Such a jam packed day!
First ever Starbucks.
My first attempt at eating oysters. You can read about my experience eating oysters for the first time here.
Sorry for the lack of photos! I didn’t take too many.
Our last day together was spent eating delicious breakfast and getting tattoos! Nothing cements a friendship like getting tattoos together! I got the little stars from the Harry Potter books. It represents my love for reading, writing, and basically all things nerdy.
Overall it was a wonderful visit. I absolutely loved seeing Emma and really enjoyed getting to know her even better. Please go check out her blog, Behind the Leopard Glasses, and support her. She is wonderful and I love her!
