Friday was Eric's 27th birthday (happy birthday to my baby daddy!!!), so he took work off so we could have some fun in the sun! In the morning I was such a good wife and made him a full blown artery clogging breakfast that included bacon, sausages, eggs, hashbrowns, and a bowl of fruit (hey, he needed SOMETHING light in there). I should win wife of the year because then I cleaned up all the dishes afterwards too.

Next stop on the fun train, stroller shopping!! I had two front runners that I had done loads of research on that I couldn't wait to test out. Thanks YouTube for all the mommy reviews. The first was the Stokke (mainly because that is my maiden name, so that was an obvious DUH!). The second was the UppaBaby Cruz. Ding, ding, ding! We had a winner!! Then we did some bra shopping because man those bad boys were hurting. Currently we're at a strict 'look but don't touch' policy at the moment, haha! And THEN we went (or rather ran) to my doctors appointment for my glucose tolerance test. You have to get your blood drawn exactly an hour after drinking the glucose drink otherwise you have to do it all over again. Luckily I made it just in time. I was super nervous about this because all people talk about is how gross the drink is. Maybe there is something wrong with me but I totally could have gone back for seconds, maybe thirds of that sugary substance! That stuff was g-o-o-d!! My recommendation for all those who are about to take it, get the orange flavor!

Don't worry, the whole day wasn't all about me. After my doctors appointment we headed downtown for lunch at Eric's favorite Thai restaurant, Mae Phim. *If you are ever in the area, head to the one in Pioneer Square off Columbia Street. Get the Mae Phim Special!! You can check out other fun things to do in Seattle here.* Then we walked around Pioneer Square people watching and museum walking. We had some time to spare before doing the Underground Tour of Seattle so we drove into Queen Anne (my old stomping grounds). If I had a billion dollars I would live here in a heart beat! Not only do you get amazing views of the city, but the homes are all so SO incredible! ^ See above! ^ Whenever we are in the area we love to walk around picking out our favorite homes and then stopping for a quick "tourist" pick at Kerry Park Viewpoint.

Mt. Rainier sure was showing off that day. It seriously looked like a painting backdrop. We asked someone to take a picture of us, but you know how those typically go. Sadly, it is not a worthy picture to publicly show. Oh well.

More "bumpin'" around Queen Anne. Seriously, isn't this place the cutest! Every street has gorgeous overhanging trees and ivy and more greenery! Nothing beats Seattle summers! Those 9 months of rain make up for it with luscious green in the summer time!

Seattle showing its pride for equal marriage. Flags were decked out all over Capitol Hill. I don't want to get all political or religious on my site but I will say that I'm so happy for all those who can now legally share their lives with the ones that they love!!

After the underground tour we ended the night at Eric's favorite mexican restaurant in Capitol Hill, Mezcaleria Oaxaca. SOOOO good! As if we weren't full enough we topped off with some birthday dessert at Molly Moon's. Of course, it wasn't nearly as much fun as ending the night with a parking ticket. I swear, they give those things out like candy. Oh well, nothing was raining on our parade!
You stay classy Seattle!
