productivity works best with food

Guys,

Guess who had productive weekend shenanigans, while still managing to not do much at the same time?! THIS GIRL.

But first off let me introduce you to my new boyfriend. Move over Bradley.
Why yes, that's my boyfriend Ryan Gosling.  Just loving women, for the sake of feminism. My good friend Justine got me him for my birthday. Also, I must really like that Chambray shirt, because I am wearing it again this morning and that picture was taken Friday. Whatever. 

Anyway, back to my productivity. Friday I was too productive for my own good. Went and got a Physical Therapy consultation and it's official my IT Band is mad at me, so looks like I will be starting PT soon to make it feel better. 

After PT I headed over to check out an apartment. Good news is we had no gross mishaps.... we also didn't pick that apartment complex...here is the kicker though, viewing that apartment helped us solidify our decision and we know where we are going to live, which is a huge relief. So if anyone wants to help us move like the second week in October, I wouldn't hate it!

I also made Brad take me on a date Friday night.  Yeah, I am an awesome girlfriend and beg for dates.  We went and ate at some local food carts and then wandered around Alberta street, which is one of the more hipster parts of Portland and I LOVE IT (said in my best Icona Pop). We might have caved on eating paleo and shared this piece of Banana Cream Pie from Random Order. 


Good, god, that pie was delicious. Also, still trying to figure out what was going on with their bathroom mirror. It featured a fake grass mat and an itty bitty mirror. Not sure what to think of it.   




Speaking of food, this food was more paleo, which I need to write about my 60 day challenge soon. 


Made salmon on a cedar plank on Saturday and it was delish. What I didn't get a photo of though was the cedar plank engulfed in flames. Whoopsies. Might have left it unattended for a tad too long. No salmon was hurt during the process though, it still tasted wonderful. 

Other than that I studied for my CPT and enjoyed a low key weekend.  What about you guys?! 

Cheers! 

<3 BB

The fact that you shared one piece of pie is pretty amazing. But salmon is good, too...
