Friday Five {My Favorite Instagrams}

In case you haven't noticed, I absolutely love Instagram!!!  It is a great way to document adventures, share funny musings, and, always pay tribute to amazing food.

While I would always recommend following me {@merecdavison} there are some really great accounts I highly recommend following!  Who do you keep up with on the Gram?  Am I missing out on anything??  I hate missing the party.

Have a great weekend darlings!!  I hope it is Instagram-able! 

Whether you are a Parks and Rec fanatic, lover of nature or have retinas, this is by far the most beautiful and inspiring Instagram account out there.

Her culinary creations are pure art.  Sourcing local ingredients and using her AMAZING kitchen and outdoor pizza oven, she is my life inspiration.  I once asked her to adopt me.  She kindly declined.

If you aren't watching The Mindy Project, START!!!  You have four days to catch up before the new season begins.  If you don't like Mindy, let's go our separate ways.  This hilarious, smart and thoughtful celebrity keeps things real on her social media.

Friday Five {Falling into Routine}

Fall has arrived.  I won't lie, it was bittersweet to see this summer end.  It was filled with great adventures, beautiful weather, and late nights with great company.  The season was also busy, exhausting and a bit chaotic.  

I've mentioned it before, but I am craving getting back into a routine.  This article prompted me to make a few dedicated "resolutions" for the seasons.  

Are you doing anything to get the season started off right?  Any suggestions?  Would love to hear how you are transitioning into Fall!!

 No Email Days.  Right now, my plan is to turn my email off on Sundays and not open my computer.  

Read a real newspaper once a week.  This can be at a coffee shop or going out and grabbing a paper at the store.  I love the process of flipping through the sections while sipping on coffee.

Read every night {Sunday-Thursday} before going to bed.

Wear lipstick on a more regular basis.

Be more outgoing while running errands.  Such as grabbing coffee, going grocery shopping or hanging out at the park.

I went on vacation {Part: Maybe this is the "Staycation" part}

Where were we??  Oh yes, I was flying back to Portland from Montana.  Sorry about the delayed continuation of this thrilling series!!

My sister and I flew back to Portland, went on an eating and exploring tour, and awaited our parental unit's arrival so we could head to the beach!

Blue Star Donuts.  Highest quality powdered sugar in the history of the world!

My future wedding caterer!

Lan Su Gardens


Tranquility in the city.

Mooncake.  NOT my cup of tea.  Pun, intended.

Tea ceremony.

Yummy tea!

Even the discarded leaves are pretty!

Porch beers after a hot and exhausting day of eating and walking.

Oh, just a regular order of fries at Tilt.  And, the dips.  Dips are another love language.

Coconut cream pie and my most favorite banana cake!!!
