Recap, Photos, & Oh My

I've been home a week from Portland, and still trying to recuperate! That 3 hour time change is killer *whew*; it's easier going West than flying back East but things are starting to return back to normal! With that being said thought I'd share some pictures that I took along my trip, which was work related but I managed to sneak some fun in from time to time :).

This is the very LARGE donut hanging in Voo Doo Donuts, the coolest place on Earth! They have the largest of variety of any flavored donuts you could ever imagine to pick from!

These are my donuts that I got at Voo Doo! A Voo Doo doll with a pretzel sticking in it's heart. You bite into "him/her" and red jelly squirts out to make it look like blood. And then who can go wrong with a donut with oreos on top! Yummmm!

This is a cool looking place we passed while trying to find Voo Doo Donuts! I just had to take a picture. I wanted to go inside, but my co-worker thought it was sketchy looking!

We went to this pizzeria called Old Town Pizza Co. Oh my, it was delicious! I am a sucker for a great pizza and this place exceeded my expectations! There's a very cool story behind this place it's reportedly, HAUNTED!

"Underneath the floor boards are the Shanghai Tunnels connecting Portland via underground pathways, then used to nab unsuspecting sailors and transport them to ships docked on the river, and can be viewed during private tours.
" ~

Doesn't that pizza look to die for???

Portland is quite the eco-friendly city, and this sign just cracked me up in the bathroom. I knew people back home (KY) would not believe this so I had to take a picture. Up for "Liquid Waste" & Down for "Solid Waste".

See ya Portland. I am super happy to be back home!

So happy to have you on Coeur de La... and what is so funny about that donut shop you wrote about is: on Friday my husband and I stopped at a place near us called psycho donuts... you pop bubble wrap while you wait, a nurse serves you and the whole place is decked out in padding... I will have to write about. Love this blog of yours!! XO

The ODB is my favorite donut from Voo Doo. I hope when I am there in May I can go into town to get some. So yum.
