Krissy and I are currently in Bend, Oregon. For me...the non-world traveller that I am, this is a big deal. We are here visiting Kelly who is one of Krissy's BEST friends from law school. I came along as extra hands as she also brought along Austin. He has been an amazing traveller and on the prop-plane that we took from Seattle to Portland, he was a better travelling campanion that Oma. (The pilot came on to announce that the flight attendants would remain seated as he was anticipating quite a bit of turbulance. I proceeded to make it through 3 decades of the rosary before we even took off.)
Inn at Red Hills. Please check out the website as it was freakin' amazing. Our room had two king size Select Comfort beds and H2O Spa products in the bathroom. I love Select Comfort beds and H2O products are just my fav.
The inn has a wonderful restaurant called "From Farm to Fork" and I clearly spent the last two days eating like a goddess. The restaurant uses the sustainable food approach leveraging local products to create it's diverse menu. Krissy loved the tomato, pesto, mozzarella salad and last night I ordered their hamburger, which sounds quite ordinary, but seriously they took the burger to a whole new level. It had garlic aoili and white chedder cheese served on a sesame brioche bun. I hummed through the whole meal. It was paired with a lovely glass (or two) of Pinot Noir. Oregon Wine Country is known for their Pinots.
If you are ever looking for a romantic destination or girls week-end in Oregon, this is the place to go.
