my sister

She’s eight years younger than me, a medical assistant, has a dog, has gorgeous red hair, was the most adorable toddler ever on the planet. We are very different, but after spending time with her I realize we share many facial characteristics. It’s cool to catch my reflection once in awhile and be reminded of her. Sarah, visit again soon!

More Portland Eats. I took Sarah to the March Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting (which ended up not to be her cup-of-tea) and before we grabbed some eats at Laughing Planet. You’re looking at Spanky’s Bowl and  a delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. I could eat this meal every day. Fresh, filling and colorful. (Amber, this has got to be our monthly pre-meeting spot!).

After the meeting we met up with our guys at Deschutes Brewery. Ethan had taken Brady (Sarah’s boyfriend) to watch four games of the men’s NCAA tournament.

Friday night we took a stab at a cork project I found on Pinterest. We got the wooden letters from JoAnn’s. I think in this case serif is better.

Saturday we checked out the Portland Zoo. The weather held and we were able to see most of the animals in action.

After the zoo the six of us (we were joined by two of Sarah and Brady’s buddies from high school) headed to Helvetia Tavern in Hillsboro. If you want a burger with secret sauce and home cut fires go here. It’s perfectly small—nestled in the country.

We said our good byes in the parking lot and the early twenty-somethings we’re off to celebrate St. Patty’s Day. Ethan and I went home to figure out what to do about this situation:

    laughing planet is one of my favorite lunch spots! i always get the spanky’s bowl… and i always add the roasted red pepper sauce to it. YUM! (oh, and i sometimes sub spinach for the broccoli and add chicken too!). so good! does your LP have dinos on the table? or is that just ours? i’ve always wondered if that was a laughing planet standard.

    looks like a fun visit with your sister. minus the water in the basement situation. that does not look fun.

    KT, You always know just what to say. Sounds like Sarah enjoyed visiting you. Looks like a fun time. We’ll see what this weekend brings when we get to visit you and Ethan. 🙂 The veggie dish looks great! Love the picture of Sarah hugging the bear! Great Zoo pictures. Cork crafts=creativity
