Pacific to the North to the West.

Written on 10/02/2012

Well, it’s that time of year again. That time when my husband looks at me one day and just knows……. It’s time for a mommy-vacay. My partner in crime and I pack up once a year and hit the road (sometimes if we’re super lucky we hit the airplane) and get our a$$’s outta Salem, and more importantly outta our houses!

This year was Seattle. I love this city. It has so much to offer two stay at home moms. There is a plethora of coffee shops and cute places to eat. There is great shopping. There is a ton of weird people to stare at and appreciate. The view from any hotel room is exceptional and it’s just a beautiful city. Jess and I love to walk around and see the sights. We love to find the perfect little cafe and sit and drink a beautifully handcrafted latte and munch on delicious fresh baked pastries. We’re pretty much a traveling match made in heaven. We just always have a great time no matter what!

So here’s a little snip-it of our weekend away. It always goes by too fast, but I know we both agree that we usually can’t get back to our sweet families fast enough :-)

Home is where the heart is.


Starting the weekend antique shopping.

The view from our room

Our Seattle attire.

Doing some “wish” shopping. And drooling.

Having coffee for the 3rd time probably. It’s Seattle. It’s what you do there.

Found my car doppelganger


More coffee….. (heart)

Just some Seattle-quirkiness for ya.

Our second time at this amazing bakery/cafe.

The best scone I have ever eaten. It really was.

More coffee.

Oh good! Butt pads! Just what I need. (weird)

Top Pot Doughnuts.

Makes sense the only word that got in the picture was “nuts”. That’s just how I roll.



Goodbye you beautiful city!

Until next time, Seattle.

    How am I just now seeing this post?!
    I'm so thankful to have these trips, but more importantly – I'm beyond thankful that you come with me every time! I wouldn't have it any other way! :)
