Well, it’s been a little quite around here. That’s not due to lack of content to blog about. My life has been nothing short of crazy lately with so much to do, so many people to see and just all around a full schedule. So I figured it was time for a bit of a recap :)
So, lets start waaaay back at Memorial Day Weekend, shall we? I went to San Diego!! I love San Diego, it’s one of my favorite places because it is just so beautiful and the weather (outside of May and June) is so gorgeous. This trip was exceptionally special because my very favorite person in the world, Alexis, was graduating from USD! Which makes me feel extremely old, but we’ll ignore that fact for now.
Then reality set back in, I had to travel home to Seattle and get back to work on Tuesday. Luckily, I had a pretty easy week and Thursday consisted of a baby shower for my boss and then a team outing to West Seattle. For the baby shower I got about as creative as I can handle and made some rainbow fruit glasses. Thanks Pinterest!
And then for the outing, which I have to say was way more fun than a baby shower (for me at least) we headed up to the top of Smith Tower to the observation deck and then walked down to the Water Taxi you can take from Pioneer Square to West Seattle and headed on over to Marination Ma Kai. I’ve never been to the top of Smith Tower so forgive me for the many pictures. I just live in such a beautiful city and the 360 view from up there really proved it!
PS. that’s the “hospital” they used for Gray’s Anatomy in the center there :) It really is a crazy beautiful building, thi spic doesn’t do it justice.
Seriously. I can’t even handle how beautiful Seattle is on a nice sunny day. This particular sunny day was 80+ degrees which is way too hot for this Seattle girl, but I survived because we were right on the water at Marination Ma Kai.
I had never ridden the Water Taxi and it was really, pretty cool. Plus, check out the view!!
Alright, finally we’ve made it to the weekend again! I know, I’m sorry, this post is getting long and very photo heavy. This past weekend was a good one though. I volunteered with my company at Pasado’s Safe Haven which is a really fabulous organization and animal sanctuary for animals that come from abusive homes, hoarding homes, neglected animals, etc.. The organization does a really amazing job of finding, investigating and passing off abuse cases to the correct authorities and then taking in the animals and often nursing them back to health, but even if they come in relatively healthy, Pasado’s gives them a save and loving home. All animals at Pasado’s are available for adoption and I literally had to avoid the cat and dog areas to avoid taking home any animals that I just don’t have the time to care for. Take a look at their website and spend a day volunteering if you can!!
After Pasado’s I went to Gregg’s Cycle in Alderwood to pick up my BRAND NEW BIKE. Super excited about this! and then out to Greenlake for dinner, walking the lake, and drinks with one of my oldest and dearest friends.
Then finnnnallllyyyyy we make it to Sunday. Sunday was full of really good food, really amazing friends, totally acceptable wine, and a fire pit which is just my very favorite thing to do when the weather is nice here in Seattle.
