IRVING ST KITCHEN

Post long overdue. A few weekends ago my gals and I decided to go have brunch. Irving St. Kitchen was the place to meet. Irving St Kitchen was on the top 12 brunch places MUST try in PDX on Oregonlive. We all pass by this place plenty of times and it was time to try a new brunch place.  The service and ambiance was great, and we sat in a section that almost felt like it was our own space in the restaurant. Brunch here wasn’t that bad!!  My chicken and waffle was good and the caramel sauce was so addicting! We labeled it the “crack syrup”. Here are. Few pics of what the gals and I ordered.

SATURDAYS

My favorite day of the weekend…..just because

it is midpoint between the start of a weekend and the end of a weekend.

My half and I wrapped up last weekend with a wind me down time

after the Greater than Good art show.

Weekend filled with events can be both fun and exhausting simultaneously.

I know I thought to myself how could this be?!

We decided to have brunch @ East Burn.

Soothes the eye to watch him doodle.  Every chance he gets, the creative juice just flows on paper; even with a Crayola nearby.

And yes…PDX encourages their customers to draw:crayons and brown paper set on the table!  Gotta love PDX for the artsy culture.

East Burnside Adventure.

Blueberry muffin and our shadows.  It was a beautiful Sunday morning.  Already knew it was going to be a great day!

Started off with Brunch at East Burn.  Yum!

Table with paper to doodle and my half decided to draw our lovely Butters! We Miss him.

Lip stain on tea mug.  #She was #here.

We wanted to enjoy the nice weather and then it got a little breezy so we decided to go inside and then we saw this swing! We sat on these lovely swings.  Different and made us feel like we were in a different world.

Me enjoying the swing like a little girl.

We both had to try the Lobster and Crawfish benedict! So Delish.

Stroll to the Vintage stores.  I love handpicked items and vintage at that!

Another store our good friend recommended us to check out.  Cute little shop.

Random Octopus made of bike chains. Art everywhere in PDX! I heart it.

Dropped by to support Fanny with her POP design necklaces.

Hand craft with beads.
Product of play packaging.

He had to get his  handmade ice cream.  I had to dig for coins to pay for this since I rarely carry cash on me.

Other artist around the Flea Market.  Rein makes very delicate and dainty necklaces.

An old OUIJA board for sale.

Great way to hang pictures!

 

That was my adventure for the weekend.  Eventful! Hope you enjoyed.
