Happy Monday girls, hope you all had fun weekends! Mine was filled with family bike rides, a trip to the flea market, food, and dinner. It was nice and relaxing.

This is my first time linking up with Rebekah Gough for her 10 on 10 series. Where you share 10 pictures from the last month, on the 10th of every month. What a fun and simple concept anyone can link up to!

Let’s take a walk down memory lane for the month of July, 2015:

  1. I went bike riding on the beach in Huntington with my mom and sister and came across a bunch of tents on the beach. I don’t think you can camp there overnight but there was a fun day camp for the kid going on and they had all these set up.


2. Dave and I went to sushi for dinner one night in Huntington Beach. sushi23) We also went on a day date and walked around Laguna Beach.

chi45) Went on a hike in Irvine with Mason who is one of my favorite people.


6) Saw this sign while I was on Hermosa Beach.

9) Ice cream on top of my chocolate chip cookie? Yes please. 🙂cookie910) I cheated with this picture because it’s actually from New York when we went back in May but it’s too pretty not to share and include. nyc10


Can’t wait to see what you all have been up to this past month. Hope you’re all recovering nicely from the weekend. Monday is back again.

And for Monday I’m linking up with: Meghan @ Champagne + Suburbs,  Marvelous in My Monday and:




Day 4 Portland to Cannon Beach – Part 2

Yesterday’s post was a little long so I decided to split it up into two. After we left Eugene, headed to Portland to meet a friend, saw Multnomah Falls, we actually headed back to Portland to eat.

I ate at Uno Mas and the tacos were really good. And it was in a cute food area.




Before we left for our road trip I did a little research and found some fun murals/street art I wanted to check out in different cities. I found a bunch of really fun ones in Portland!

I walked around the corner while I was waiting for my food and found this cute one. If you want to see this, the address for the Pie Spot is 521 Northeast 24th Avenue, Portland, OR 97232.


I turned around and behind me was this gem:


After lunch we headed to get some ice cream, based on my cousin’s recommendation, at Salt & Straw. They have fun ice cream combos and flavors. I’d totally recommend it if you’re in Portland.  They have three locations in Portland, we went to the one at 2032 NE Alberta St.



The reason we went to this location was two of my murals were down the block from the ice cream shop. So we took a little walk and found two that were on my list.

This motivational mural is at 21 Street and NE Alberta Avenue.


This amazing “You Are Confined Only By the Walls You Build Yourself” mural can be found at 22nd and NE Alberta Avenue. IMG_20150304_154248

I LOVED this one! The colors, the details, the font, everything. So I decided to take close up pictures of the quote so you can all see the details.





After our awesome ice cream mural walk, we got back into the car and headed to Cannon Beach. My cousin raved about this beach, and we’d also heard it was beautiful from other people and it’s been on our list for a while. We made it to town just in time to see Haystack Rock at sunset.
