Girls Weekend

Mom, Mandy, and I had a wonderful girls weekend in Seattle this past weekend! They flew in on Thursday around 2pm and left this morning :( We had a fun fulfilled weekend and I can't wait for the next one!

On Thursday we went to Green Lake and had a picnic. Then we strolled around Wallingford indulging on Trophy cupcakes and kid thrift stores. We had dinner at our apartment and then headed out for an improv comedy show in Post Alley.

Friday - We enjoyed coffee and baked goods at Le Panier, a French bakery. We then took mom to Talbots to spend her giftcards that her wonderful husband had given her for her anniversary and birthday.....we bought some wonderfully gorgeous outfits (Thanks Greg!) We had some lunch at Virginia Inn and then headed to Belltown for massages at Spa Noir! They were wonderful and much appreciated! After massages we went to the public library and then to Palomino's for happy hour. I love Palomino's gorgonzola fries, crab artichoke dip, and $5 pizzas...yum!

how many margs did you have?

Saturday - We took a food tour of Pike Place market, prepped for mom's birthday dinner, and then shopped a little bit before heading back to the apartment to get ready for dinner. Our friends Carly and Freddo came over for mom's birthday dinner. We celebrated with wild mushroom lasagna, peanut butter cake, games, and chit-chat! It was a great night! Hope you had a wonderful birthday Mom!

Sunday - We visited with Viv, took mom and Mandy on a tour of Seattle, and then to Beth's to eat lunch. I don't think they could handle the ungodly amounts of food at Beth's, but they tried! After lunch we crashed at the apartment and watched 4 movies!!!! I don't think I have ever watched or slept thru 4 movies in 1 day!

They left this morning and it was sad, but if we didn't live apart we wouldn't have these fun fulfilled weekends that leaving you craving sleep!!!

I love you both and I hope you had a wonderful time! I miss you like crazy! Thank you so much for coming. These are times that we will never forget!

Happy Anniversary Mom and Greg! Thanks Greg for letting her come on such a HUGE weekend! Next time you have to come too!

Mandy - send me your pictures please!
