I hope you all had a great weekend. For the long weekend, I spent every day celebrating my birthday by doing my favorite things with all the people I love. So I snagged a room at my favorite hotel and head up to Portland! First stop was Lauretta Jean’s which by far has the best eggs Benedict I’ve had in a while.
I initially wanted to do a full birthday post but I actually spent less time behind the camera and more of it enjoying the wonderful company of my friends. Actually my favorite moments all happened after I stopped sharing on social media. It got me to thinking about the friends I have around me right now. It was very hard to not spend my 30th birthday with friends and family from my hometown but it was also really refreshing to have friends here who took the time and effort to come out to hang out with me. It’s always a good time when people don’t make excuses and just show up to show you they care. So I’m very thankful for those that were able to make it out.
Since I don’t have a plethora of photos from the busy weekend, let’s get down to the brunch at Lauretta Jean’s. I went for the lox biscuit and my boyfriend had the eggs Benedict (I know the one time I chose something different I end up liking the Benny more). We started our Saturday with a brunch at this quaint little spot off division. Lauretta Jeans’s famously known for their BOMB AF pies and pastry selection along with their delectable biscuits. Soft and crispy, they are a definitely a treat to be had. I skipped out on having coffee since I already had one on the way up to Portland and wasn’t really in the mood for a cocktail. Scroll down for some delicious brunch dishes that are seriously drool-worthy.
If you’re ever in Portland make sure to stop by this amazing spot. There are a lot of places to try in PDX but I chose this one specifically after a local chef in town recommended. Pros: there was no line and it was quick and easy. Cons: Actually zero I can think of.
