Very Zen: Honeymoon Day 3

We went to the Chinese Classical Gardens and after drinking tea and strolling along a perfectly beautiful garden, left feeling impossibly relaxed and chill. 

To counteract this, we immediately headed to Voodoo Doughnut, a Portland staple wherein you can purchase doughnuts covered in Fruit Loops, or shaped like voodoo dolls (stabbed with a pretzel stick!)

There was also POWELL'S WORLD OF BOOKS, which is a 3-story bookstore quite literally larger than a city block, and Pittock Mansion which, despite being closed, offered us a beautiful view of Portland with Mt. Hood in the background.   

Today's Breweries included Rogue (which was impossibly delicious), and Widmer (which was frankly disappointing).

Breweries:  2
Samplers:  7 
Pints:  6
Unique Beers:  10

After failing to hit enough breweries, we changed the game plan.

Learning is Fun: Honeymoon Day 2

On day two we expanded our knowledge by going to OMSI (the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) which was fun and visiting the Zoo which was lovely but lemur-less.  Of course we took that new knowledge of science and animals and drank it away at three more breweries. 

And thanks to Greg for making us a delicious dinner.

Pint Count: 8
Sample Count: 6
Unique Beer Count: 14
Brewery Count: 3 (Rock Bottom Portland, New Old Lompoc, Lucky Labrador)

The Plane! The Plane!: Honeymoon Day 1

Well, we're in Portland... and no one is surprised it's raining.  We couldn't be happier.  We hit 2 breweries (one before we even got to Portland!) and a bar already, and making plans to hit what we can while we are here.  Wish us luck.

Pint Count:  10
Unique Beer count: 8
Brewery Count:  2 (Rock Bottom Minneapolis and BJs)

...and now for Something Completely Different: -1 Days to Go

Everything went fantastically.  It was a hectic day, and it went by in a snap... but we took away many memories.  Don't worry, this does not spell the end of this blog, not yet.  We still have a honeymoon to post about and also pictures and videos and other such aftermath.  We'll keep you posted in...

I'm Gettin' Married in the Morning: 1 Day to Go

Well it's upon us.  Everyone is in town.  The Rehearsal Dinner is done (thanks Mom & Dad!) and everyone is well and rehearsed.  The only thing left is to try to get something resembling a reasonable night's sleep.

See everyone tomorrow!

Wedding Part-ay: 2 Days to Go

Thank you to everyone who could make it to our knock-down drag-out wedding party.  Thanks to all the non-karaoke people who braved karaoke and to the festive people who came in costume.  We love you guys.

It was really useful in unwinding, and we're so glad people got to meet each other before "The Event"

I took pictures, but you're likely not to see any till after the wedding.
