A Perfect Seattle Weekend



I'm back from the most perfect long weekend in Seattle! Christina of Easily Entertained has been one of my favorite bloggers for years and we've been lucky enough to meet up a few times when she's visited California. Because we instantly connected, we came up with the idea that I'd take a vacation in Seattle to visit her...or maybe I told her I was just going to come up and she had no choice ;) Either way I'm SO glad we made it happen because I just experienced an incredible three days with her.

Christina was the best host and a great sport, going on tours with me all three days. Upon my arrival we went on an underground tour of the city, got dinner, then headed to the famous Gum Wall followed by a Pike's Place haunted tour. Despite the fact it was a long day, I wasn't even the slightest bit tired, I was too excited.



Sunday we woke up, bought tickets to the Seahawks game and headed into the city for some pre-game football at a bar before heading to the game. I thought the Superdome filled with Saints fans was crazy, but the 12th Man and that record held for loudest stadium rings true...literally. Super loud and exciting. Oh and how about the Seahawks winning in overtime?!



Monday was my last day and we made the most of it with a Duck Tour, lunch at the top of the Space Needle, followed by an impromptu photo shoot in a pile of leaves. Yeah, Christina put up with my crazy request to frolic in the fall foliage. About every five seconds the entire trip I was ooh-ing and aww-ing over the pretty colors that I'd never actually seen in real life. Yeah, no autumn color change in LA, boo.


A HUGE thank you to Christina for a weekend full of memories!! Who would've thought when we started following each others' blogs about four years back that we'd become in-real-life friends? It feels like we've know each other forever and after this weekend I know that I have a life-long friend in her. Can't wait 'til our next rendezvous!
