We Seattled.

And I’m officially enamored. Gor. Geous. Ridiculously gorgeous.  Greener than green. Cleaner than clean. Restaurants to end all restaurants. We’re sold….hook, line, and sinker. Now if fate will just cooperate….2 years from now, it could be our home. Here’s a little bit of what we did.

Had to wake up at 4:45 a.m. to catch our flight. 'nuff said.

Dropped our things at the hotel and headed out for adventure. First stop:

Funky Alley right next to Pike's Market....covered in chewed up gum wads. It was both totally gross and totally cool at the same time.

See? Cool. And gross. I didn't have a rubber glove on me, or I would've stuck my own wad on there. Isn't art so subjective?

City in bloom.

On the Ferry to Bainbridge Island.

Mr. Banks and MacGyver.

Hi, gorgeous view. How fabulous would this be if this was your commute every day?!

Downtown Seattle. Electric Blue trees? I'm in.

Art museum. Saw the Gauguin exhibit which we went to for free when a nice downtown cop handed us tickets. Great exhibit. And did I mention it was free?!

Serious Pie: Seriously Good Pizza. Even our little Mr. Banks thought so (notice bite mark in coaster)... Tom Douglas is a God. For reals. We ate at 4 of his restaurants while there, and I think our favorites were Serious Pie and Lola. Get the Eggs Benedict if you hit Lola, and the handmade doughnuts. Your mouth will thank you. Forever.

A few OOTD’s: Me messing around on a huge Anchor on Bainbridge Island.

Me, windblown from the ferry, ready to stuff our faces at Iver’s. YUM. I wore this jacket every day and was stopped multiple times a day by complete strangers telling me how much they loved it.  It truly has been one of my best Anthro purchases ever.

Roundup: Must go back, ASAP. Weather = gorgeous. Sight seeing aplenty. Shopping = awesome. Picked up a few goodies I’ll show you soon, the most exciting one acquired at Nordstrom Rack of all places.  I don’t usually have the best of luck for myself there. Happily, this time, luck was on my side. Can’t wait to show ya. Anthro….gotta say, I was a little disappointed.  The store is HUGE!! Two stories.  They have really cool pieces, one of a kind vintage treasures that are way beyond my budget…but I drooled at them nonetheless.  I think I hit this store at an odd time…right before new May arrivals, so the store was completely picked over.  I did, however, find the pair of pants I was after:

Patch Pocket Trousers

I’m obsessed with them.  They have perfect rear-end pocket placement, diminishing the whoomp-there-it-is factor. Hollah. I’m eyeing other colors now.

I have many posts in the works.  A discussion is def in order about the new May arrivals, don’tcha think?  Oi!! I’ve added about 20 things to my wishlist, just yesterday.  Hi Anthro, so glad you’re back, EN FORCE!

xoxo Molly
