I had a whole entry in my head from teacher training weekend, but I just ran out of time. Maybe later I'll post something on the 8 Limbs of Yoga, but now.... now.... I'm on vacation! Right this minute, I am typing this in our hotel room in Portland, OR (I've been up since 5:00 am their time). And I'm already just a little bit in love. Our flight left OKC at 6:30 yesterday morning. We thought it was a non-stop flight, at least that's what our tickets said. But really they meant non-changing-planes flight. We stopped in Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Boise Idaho before our final stop in Portland. That's a long trip consisting on a Luna bar and peanuts. By the time we made it to Portland we were so hungry we could eat at Arby's. When this happens, Chris and I usually do something stupid like eat at some place familiar. We lucked out this time and went to a Burgerville right across from our hotel.

Burgerville is Oregon's fast food burger joint. they use all sustainable stuff and local farmers. I got the veggie burger which turned out to be one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had. And you had a choice between regular fries or.... are you ready for this? ... sweet potato fries. Who does that?!?! No fast food place were I live does this.

After Burgerville, we hunted down a Trader Joe's to buy some provisions. Then we perused the REI store and found the yoga studio I researches online. That's it. We were pooped. I think I went to bed at 7:00 PM local time and Chris followed soon after. Not sure what we plan to do yet today, but I don't care. I'm on vacation!
