Today I tried some new things.
I have only lived in the Portland area for a few years, so I'm still not only learning my way around all its many neighborhoods, but around the hundreds of delicious restaurants and fun places to go and see in the city.
Ben and I had been planning on going out to breakfast this morning, since we almost never do that. We decided on Gravy on Mississippi, since I had never been and heard wonderful things about the brulee oatmeal. I was pretty disappointed in my decision though. I got there and decided a gigantic scramble sounded better. It was delicious, but I could only eat about 1/4 of it as I coveted my neighbors bowl of oatmeal with crusty sugar on top. Next time. Don't get me wrong, not knocking the scramble. It was great, but not crunchy topped oatmeal great.
After breakfast we headed over to Vivace for a little hot chocolate and took some silly pictures.
Then we headed up to a place I've never been, the Pittock Mansion.
Such a beautiful drive!
I love the fall!
I love new places!
I love mansions!
I love hot chocolate!
I love leaves!
