Portlander Problems #43

It has been about two months since my last Portlander Problems post.  I'm sorry!  I've mostly been having mommy problems around here lately.  I finally got around to it though!

1.  Feeling shocked when I notice a Dutch Bros sticker on a friend's car.  I thought I knew her so well.
2. Pearl loves throwing everything into the garbage.  It's been pretty rough trying to explain the concept of recycling and composting to a toddler.
3. Trying to point out the merits of my neighborhood to friends and talk them into moving this way is pretty difficult when the area is known as "felony flats."

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.  E-mail me at


  1. Take heart. I would categorized your area as Outer SE Portland. Felony Flats is a nickname for Lents/Flavel.

  2. "felony flats?" Where do you live?! LOL!!!

  3. Not dutch bros!!! I saw someone the other day with a dutch bros and a random order sticker. I couldn't make that work in my head.

    1. Haha, I will admit that I have driven through a Dutch Bros before, but I would never put one of their stickers on my car!

  4. technically Dutch Bros was founded in Grants Pass right? so that is still OR pride?

  5. It's fun to see the kids get a hang of garbage v. recycling and do it on their own. Success!


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
