Top 10 Things About My Seattle Trip

10.The food and beverages, including pho (pronounced like “fu” such as “what the fuuuu” and being reminded countless times that it’s fu and not fo, such as “fo sho”)IMG_2924

and hot chocolate with pretty designs (I’m not digging coffee lately…luckily Courtney asked the baristo –is that a male barista?- to make our hot chocolates pretty)dsc_1878

and fresh donuts at Pike’s Place.dsc_1812

9. Taking the ferry to Bainbridge Island, then driving up to Port Townsend. The town was cute, the shops were fun, and the 2 hour driving time was full of great conversation.

8. Trying to take an Inspector Gadget-ish photo in our matching trenchcoats and failing epically. 2011-12-01

7. Seeing beautiful sights in the city.IMG_2868

6. Seeing Emily and baby Cullen!!dsc_1895

5. Visiting the arboretum. It healed a part of my soul that I didn’t know plants could. Cheesy yes. Also true.IMG_2905

4. Learning new household tricks, such as ironing clothes with a flat iron. Pure genius.IMG_2944

3. Seeing Courtney and Brent’s new life and home in Seattle. (No, that’s not their home pictured below but they live so close to many great restaurants! And um, sorry there are no pictures of you Brent. 😉 )IMG_2883

2. Instead of going out on Friday night, staying in for cereal and PJs and chatting about life. IMG_2942

1. This girl. She is the best friend a gal could ask for.IMG_2937

    I’ve never had pho, and have been pronouncing it wrong! What a great trip. Looks like you guys did so much! Also, I taught Chris the flat iron-shirt trick and I think it’s hilarious when he does it! You look gorgeous in these photos and so glad you got to see Em + the babe!

    We did a girls trip to Seattle at the end of September and it was fantastic. Savor Food tour of Pike’s Place was amazing. Must try! I also had my first Pho…and I’m a fan. Glad you enjoyed, loved the photos

    Thanks for coming to visit me!! I had such a fun time, even in rainy/freeeezing Port Townsend! I can’t wait for you to come back so we can do all the things we never got around to this time…Discovery Park Loop is #1 on the list for SURE.

    And like everyone else already said, you are super duper cute in all these pics <3 (oh, and again, Brent wants credit for the ones he took, what a drama queen).

    love ya! hurry back!!
