The Blondes Go South

After a Saturday evening of films, facials and fundue, two blondes hit the road before the crack of dawn on Sunday morning, bound for the border. Keira and I had been planning our trip to Seattle for what seemed like forever, so obviously we were beyond excited when the day of our adventure finally arrived.

We stayed at The Moore Hotel, which to our great delight, is a darling little hotel right downtown. We were given fantastic service by a total sweetheart at the front desk, who encouraged us to opt for one of the suites. It ended up being just so much lovelier than we ever could have imagined.

We spent the day walking around the city, taking photos, and exploring the famous Pike Place Market. It was just what we needed; a weekend away filled with shopping, laughing, eating different (yummy and not so healthy) foods, amazing tunes, sightseeing, perfect vodka sodas, an incredible concert courtesy of Miss Jenny Lewis and (if you can believe it) lots and lots of sunshine!


On our way home today, we made a stop at Alderwood Mall for some of the essentials, including Victoria's Secret and "Hot Dog On A Stick." It may not have yet have been noon, but it certainly wasn't too early for us to get some meat on a stick. Keira raves about their dogs and cherry lemonade, so I was pretty sure that I was in for a treat. I was definitely not disappointed. Let me just say, it was the best damn hot dog that I've ever eaten in my life. We were also treated to complimentary "cheese on a stick" by Anna, the enthusiastic doll working behind the counter. She told us that it would taste just like a grilled cheese sandwich. I thought that she was exaggerating. She wasn't. I can't wait to go back.


The two of us had an absolutely awesome weekend. In fact, we're already planning our next trip (and the "shopping fund" saving starts now!)

Fun time, certainly sounds way more civilized than my outing to Seattle with my friends last summer... most of the pics we took can be used to blackmail later.
