The Weekend: 5 Things

ice cream


I hope all of you had such a wonderful 4th of July weekend. This past weekend had me incredibly spoiled with happy hours, dinners, friends, and family!   Can we have 4-day weekends all of the time? Kevin and I have been craving ice cream sandwiches like when we were kids so today  we contemplated at the grocery store whether or not we should buy a box of 12 or a box of 16. In the end, it didn’t really matter because we got what we wanted all along.

Seattle’s Outdoor Bars

Rumor has it that next week Seattle temperatures are supposed to reach the 90s! A rare treat for us locals. To celebrate, I would expect everyone to want to be out and about enjoying happy hour and drinks at some of the best patios this city has to offer. Thrillist compiled a list of places that I have yet to visit, but definitely plan on during this season. Another one of my favorites that didn’t make the cut is Joeys on Lake Union. But let’s be real, I’m going there for the bellinis more than the patio itself.

Are you tired of ringing in the New Year with just flutes of champagne? WE ARE. Why not celebrate 2012 with a lineup of drinks that will remind you how great this year was. Election Day Mojito pictured above? Definitely on my list of drinks to try.

See the rest here.

Rodarte For Starbucks Has Arrived

Can’t afford real Rodarte? Missed the Rodarte for Target collaboration a few years back? Well, here’s one more chance (and hopefully not the last) to snag Rodarte at a price that you may never see again. The Rodarte for Starbucks collection has arrived in stores and is ready to be adored by the masses. The collection is modern, crisp, and minimal. Would you expect anything less than stellar from the Mulleavy sisters?

An Adult Milkshake

I once had a Black Forest Chocolate – Tini and to be honest? I didn’t love it. Maybe it was too much chocolate. Maybe I couldn’t adapt to the fact that I was having a sweet drink with alcohol in it. Whatever the case, I didn’t finish it and I’ve never looked back. However, hearing about an alcoholic milkshake is something that I think I could maybe get behind. There are several restaurants in the Seattle area serving them up and I wanna know… does it sound appealing to you?

Does alcohol belong in our classic favorites? Seattle Met Blogs have provided a few places where you can get your fix and I think I just might!

Currently Craving:

Pumpkin Spice Latte

At my old job, my routine involved grabbing myself one of these before I started the day. Now, I am somehow getting by without it! At least I know that I always have the option of making it myself if I wanted to.

Purchase here.

Thought Catalog Roundup

25 Aug 2012

10 Thoughts

  1. Guess what kind of face I made when I saw THIS for the first time?
  2. Today, I discovered my dream wedding dress is not within the range of my future wedding dress budget.
  3. Snickerdoodle Cupcakes. They exist. They’re mini! Only at Cafe de Russ, right?
  4. TLC spoils me with the wedding series… Say Yes to the Dress, Four Weddings, and now I Found the Gown.
  5. Bellinis will be served at MY wedding.
  6. Throughout the summer, I have eaten at the Nordstrom Cafe for dinner nearly 5-6 times. Every time I have gone, there has always been the same elderly couple and today (after inquiring) my waiter told me that they come in almost every Friday. They are just as cute as I believed them to be and he orders breakfast for dinner and she orders the pasta. It was the sweetest thing.
  7. Courtney and I pulled over to watch some donkeys on the side of the road today on the way home.
  8. Lance Armstrong – bummer bro.
  9. There’s no point in saving money for the sake of just saving it. You should be saving with an intent to use it towards something that you really want whether it’s for yourself or for someone else. Sup v-ron.
  10. Chocolate Croissants will always be my most favorite pastry in the world.
