Earlier this week I went to Alberta Street to go cafe hopping with a friend! We scouted out three of the best cafes and I samples a macchiato at each. We spotted this stop sign on the way back.

I flexed my bartending muscles and made a Mint Mango Madness (Mmm for short!)

Since studying in the Middle East, I’ve taken an interest in Saddam in the 70’s before the wars. Most of the books focus on post-9/11 Saddam or modern Iraq. I went to Powell’s Bookstore with a friend and found this gem! It is from the perspective of Iraq’s lead physicist who was scouted to begin making the nuclear bomb under Saddam. It’s a great book so far!

This was the welcome booth at my work’s customer appreciation night! Free drinks and snacks for all.

My friend Katie and I at Portland’s BEST ice cream shop – Salt and Straw! I got the Olive Oil flavor which is surprisingly delicious. I sampled one of their seasonal flavors – Bretta Fermented Pear and Fudge. It was good, but not as good as olive oil!
