There was still snow up to my knees on Mt. Hood at the end of April. This Tennessee girl gets excited over a few flurries so this was definitely “stock up on milk and bread” level for me. At one point, I fell face first in the snow. I disappeared for a few seconds, ha! Continue reading “MT. HOOD”
Long and Short Sleeve Layers
I wanted to share what I packed for Portland in case anyone was wondering or packing for a similar trip!
I cannot stress how much I love my Hunter rain boots. I would buy them again in a heartbeat. I wore them almost every day and they are a must-have item. I got the “tour” version that fold up easily for packing.
I bought the Columbia rain coat specifically for the trip and it withstood light showers as well as huge waterfalls.
Patagonia’s Re-Tool Snap Pullover is ridiculously warm. I can’t put it on while still in the house or I start sweating so it’s definitely worth the price.
The Better Sweater Jacket also by Patagonia is a great layering piece. It’s the perfect jacket for layering and every day wear.
I get most of my long and short sleeve layers from Old Navy, Gap, and Target.
I hope this helps for anyone planning a trip somewhere rainy. Never let it stop you from having an incredible adventure.
Until next time,
While Chris and his cousin Ryan went skiing, Colette took the boys and I to Little Zigzag Falls. The falls are just a short walk away from the parking lot which is great for kids. The trail was still covered in snow so the walk was exceptionally beautiful that day. Continue reading “LITTLE ZIGZAG FALLS HIKE”
We had an incredible trip to Portland! I am thrilled to be able to share Voodoo Doughnut shop and much more with the You, Me, and Tennessee family. Voodoo Doughnut is a place I’ve seen on Food Network and read about on Pinterest. I’ve wanted to go for years and I am over the moon to say that we finally made it happen. I encourage each and every one of you to make your own list and start marking things off. You won’t regret it!
