day three: day after new year’s day

********************

Unfortunately, most of the shops in the heart of Old Port (Portland) were closed on New Years Day.  Thoughtfully I had anticipated this and we booked our flight home for the evening on the 2nd so we could make sure I had plenty of shopping time in the city. That morning we decided to splurge again and give The Holy Donut another try but called first to make sure they were open.  Their donuts were AMAZING!!!!!  They have a handful of boutique donut locations in Portland and specialize in healthy donuts.  No, seriously, a healthy donut!  They use as many all natural and local ingredients as possible. The basis of the donut is potatoes…mashed Maine potatoes.  If you are ever in the Portland, ME area I highly recommend them. I will say if you are looking or expecting light and fluffy donuts these are not it… they are similar to cake or old fashioned donuts and yum, yum, yum!
The weather was still cold, but above freezing.  Just enough for the snow to start to melt.  For our final day in Portland I wore maternity jeans (of course I can’t fit into other pants now at 8 months pregnant), my handmade fur boots, Under Armour Coldgear shirt, denim shirt and fur vest.  What’s funny about this vest is that my mom bought it for me years ago, but it was always too big.  I loved it and I sort of have an extensive collection of vests (along with other items but that is for another post) so I kept it.  And I am glad I did because now it fits perfectly over my baby bump and I  can even zip it up!  My plan for the day was to swing into my must-see stores and then just shop and explore.  First stop was Alaina Marie and then Sea Bags.  Here are a few of my favorite items from their stores!

 I am not sure if our trip qualifies for a spontaneous weekend away since we had two weeks notice but I can say with 100% confidence it is the most spontaneous we have ever been with a trip.  And now that we have the Southwest companion pass I am hoping we plan a lot more of these next year with our little guy in tow.
