Holiday Festivities!

Well it has been quite a fun filled couple of weeks! Christmas parties, weekends away, sporting events, and quite a bit of christmas cheer! I have been really lucky to have such a fun holiday so far and I hope the fun continues!

Matt and I headed up to Portland last weekend to spend some time together doing "christmas-ish" activities. He is going to be spending the holidays with his family in the Bay Area and so we thought it would be fun to have our own little holiday up in portland...
We went to the Portland Zoo for thier holiday lights display. They had over 1 million lights all over the Zoo... and also the animals were out which made it twice as fun!

There was also a little train that took us around the grounds... so fun and festive. We smuggled in peppermint schnapps and added to our hot chocolate. 

We had dinner at Mamma Mia Trattoria which is insanely good italian. 

This was the lobby of our hotel! So pretty!!

This was taken on top of a rooftop bar right in downtown portland... It was a LITTLE chilly!!! However it wasn't raining and the heat lamps were GREAT!

Then later in the week we went to a dinner party at our friends Annie and Anthony's house up the Mackenzie River.

Matt and I went to a blazer game last night, which was fabulous. 


I hope everyone is have a very
