Seattle Bound

Monday, September 24, 2012

Tolar and I are getting ready to travel to Seattle for an extended weekend trip and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve never been to Seattle or even Washington State, so I’m ready to check another state off my list and take in all that Seattle has to offer, with the man I love by my side.

We are in desperate need of some time away just the two of us. Yes, we do get to spend time together here in D.C., but so often my OCD brain fills our time with cleaning and organizing the house and working on projects that we don’t get a chance to just relax and enjoy each other’s company (I definitely plan to work on that!) With our anniversary being at the end of March, we didn’t get to take a nice summer vacation this year. Yes, we did get to take an AWESOME anniversary trip to Hawaii in April, but we still need a break after working all summer long.

Me and Tolar at a luau in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Being OCD, I’m making a list of all of the places and restaurants we need to check out while we are in Seattle. Of course, visiting Pike’s Place Market, the Space Needle and taking a ferry to Puget Sound are on the list, but we also love to check out the hidden gems when we travel to new cities. Have you ever been to Seattle and do you have any travel tips/awesome places to share? If so, leave a note in the comment section and I’ll add it to my list. Thanks in advance for your fabulous suggestions!

I’m linking up with Carly from Lipgloss and Crayons for this #YOLOMONDAY post – so send me some awesome Seattle suggestions because YOLO!


  1. go visit my nephews!!!!! I'll check in with my sister and send you some ideas =) But Redmond is a really nice area and if you want to see Sir Mix-A-Lot, he shows his cars at Redmond Town Center on Saturday mornings :)

  2. Whale watching! Get on a boat! Take a ferry! See the needle and then spend hours just talking to each other. :)

  3. I found Kerry Park on TripAdvisor before I went - it's just a little park in a neighborhood but it has an amazing view of the skyline. (The one from the Frasier logo!) The walk to it has some big hills but you could easily drive there and park in the neighborhood.

    1. All great suggestions! And hey, the big hills can be our workout for the day.

  4. I second whale watching! It's amazing! Also, the Seattle underground tour is really cool too!


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
