This past weekend I had the privilege to get away from it all and spend 4 fantastic days in Seattle, WA.
The occasion? Nothing. Just 4 friends wanting to get away from the mundane day to day life of washing dishes, cleaning house, taking kids to and from school. etc etc.
It was fabulous.
Ashley is from the area, and it only being an 8 hr drive, it worked out great. We rented a condo that ended up being right down town off of Pike St. If you walked up, you were on Capital Hill with all the great restaurants and hang out joints, if you walked down, you were in the shopping district that ended up at Pike Place Open Market, and the Waterfront.
The first day we went to the Puyallup (pronounced pew-al-up- not pull y'all up like I kept wanting to say) Western Washington Fair. It was a lot of fun and we felt like kids. Our first stop was the scone booth. Ashley told the lady that this was our first time (us other 3) there, so we scored some free scones with jam. Y-U-UM
We met up with Ashley's Mom and headed to Chuhuly Glass Galery and Gardens. Fantastic. Another charge to my battery. I am a little sad we did not make it to the Seattle Museum of Art, but this was amazing.
We took the Ferry to Bremerton to visit Ashley's Mom and get haircuts. Loved this view as we left
In the end we really appreciated Boise. I really do love Boise- it's big but not too big. We have a wide variety of no make up to the over done. It's clean, green (most of the time), and I feel I can call it home now.
It was a blast, and was the perfect amount of time to be gone. So excited to be there, but didn't stay too long to start to resent things. I thought of my family from time to time, like the horse fart, the store of all Hello Kitty, and a picture of a couple kissing infront of the Eiffel Tower hanging in the French Bakery. At that moment I really missed Preston and wanted to plant one right on his lips. Now I am back home and back into the grind. Fun memories with some fun ladies. See ya, Seattle. Until next time.
