Portlander Problems #38

1. Basically everyone I know in Portland did the Shamrock Run this weekend.  How am I the only person in this city seemingly incapable of running a 15k?
2. The Pendleton Woolen Mill Store fabric sale started on Friday.  As I was scouring the deals, I had a hard time not dropping hundreds of dollars on wool.  I seriously saw people with stacks of fabric that must have cost close to $1,000.  I left with a broken heart and $50 worth of fabric.
3. I am quickly realizing how uncool we are.  Friends on Instagram are always posting photos of themselves at trendy local restaurants.  On the rare occasion we do go out to eat, Jeremy and I generally go to the same restaurant that is mostly patronized by the elderly and has menus in the shape of steak.

If you live in the Portland area and want to share some of your own, I would love if you would submit your Portlander Problems to me. 
I will post yours one of these coming weeks.  E-mail me at


  1. Oh, girlie. I love you... That 'in the shape of steak' made me crack up laughing.

  2. Haha. I'm right there with you on all of these. I love reading your Portlander Problems. :-)

  3. Haha maybe I'm just not trendy too but I love said restaurant with steak shaped menus! :) they make a mean veggie platter! :)

  4. i feel like you two all my instagram friends go to trendy restaurants and me i stay at home because most of the time my husband is at a track meet this time of year and my friends all have plans so i stay at home, trendy restaurants wouldn't appreciate if i bring my dogs as my date

  5. bahahahhaaa! yes! oh man. I can't remember if I commented on your IG picture of Saylers, but, we are so going there for a family friend's birthday party and I CAN'T WAIT!:-) Screw those trendy small plated fancy shmancy hipster restaurants!
