Independent Women

Moving to Portland took two separate weekends. First weekend, the weekend before Phil's finals, Ruby and I did most of the move all by ourselves. I was so excited to see our place, it had been 3ish weeks since we first viewed it and I was starting to forget what it looked like. And of course I was even more excited to show Ruby. We had planned on leaving Saturday morning but we left Friday night instead, so crazy! Just to let you know how great our new landlords are there was a fragrant vase of flowers in my entry way. So welcoming!

Saturday morning before shopping we walked to breakfast. Our landlords Ryan and Holly recommended the Waffle Window on Hawthorne. We obeyed them and were pleasantly surprised by delicious sweet and savory waffles. Our new favorite place.

Ruby is a super woman as most of you know. I was so happy to have her help me unpack and set up. Saturday we made a HUGE trip to ikea. Our main goal was to find a sleeper sofa, we found much much more :)

Tiffy met up with Ruby and I after shopping to help with assembling. I was so so proud of us girls doing everything on our own! I'm used to Phil doing all this hard stuff.

This step Tiff and Ruby had to do some teamwork! I love it!
This shelf/room divider was TERRIBLE to assemble but I am so glad we have it. It separates the bedroom from the living while also creating my new office!
After our hard work I took the ladies out to dinner to the recommended Hoda's. We order "taste of the middle east". An amazing sampler that said it feeds 2 but I guarantee you we could have had a 4th person and had been satisfied. It came with(spelling straight from their menu) kafta kabobs, chicken kabobs, lemon rice, humos, baba ghanouje, tabouleh, falafel, stuffed grape leaves and an unending supply of fresh hot pita bread. So so good and $32 for all 3 of us with leftovers. Hoda's is one block from my house. LOVE IT!


Thanks again Tiff and Rubes for your hard work and friendship!
