DINNER IN SEATTLE


On Saturday, the mister and I headed out to a little outdoor co-workers barbecue. I'm still kicking myself for not taking any pictures because the venue was perfect (overlooking the Space Needle in an open garden), filled with so many amazing people. Let's skip over the part where I stuffed myself with way too many chips + salsa + guacamole, cupcakes, cookies, and cake. Yeah, so much for my little healthy streak. I paid for it today with my morning run.

The weekend also included some birthday celebrations, 95 degree weather, dog sitting, little brother chaperoning, laguna beach marathon-ing, and late night driving. What fun things did you do this weekend?

Oh, and a birthday shout out to my dad is in order. Happy Birthday Daddy!

  34. That sounds just dreamy!
    Unfortunately with the hot weather I haven't been able to be bothered with walking to my regular favorite spots around Seattle :( And parking sucks, so I never drive anywhere. I've been confined to days at Cal Anderson on the hill. Lame! Haha.

  51. Happy Birthday to your papa!

    We had a VERY low-key weekend around here, as Little Miss was running a fever, but as it happens, my birthday is today, and Mr. M took me for a gourmet lunch at a Denver favorite (Bent Fork Grill). Goat cheese topped with Thai chile sauce, served with homemade organic rosemary crustinis ... Jamaican jerk chicken tacos ... green tea cheesecake ... To die for, I'm telling you.
