Brett and I spent another gorgeous weekend in Seattle together. We already divulged that our summer was spent long distance between Seattle and Huntsville so it was nice getting to have a few weekends together! 🙂 It may have taken a crazy long time to get there…including a 7 hour stay in the Huntsville, AL airport which I told you about here. (By the way, can you guess where I got stuck for the night? (The waffle says it all!)) During this Seattle exploration weekend we tried lots of new things compared to our other visits this summer and last! Brett and I walked around Ikea, buying things for one of his projects at work. We spent some time working (we know…we’re obsessed). 🙂 We had a great evening with some of Brett’s co-workers, including a delicious sushi dinner and some frozen yogurt for dessert. We went on the Boeing Future of Flight Tour and got to tour the factories where Boeing’s airplanes are put together. We spent an afternoon on a high ropes course…Brett and I are still debating how high it was exactly haha! 🙂 We had a great Nepalese and Tibetan meal at a restaurant called Annapurna Cafe with Raj. The restaurant had a very nondescript exterior but once you descended the main stairs, we felt very much like we were eating in an underground, secret oasis of wonderful food. 🙂 We had a great time exploring the Broadway area afterwards. While on the hunt for a bar where we could have a drink we found this awesome coffee shop and stopped there instead. We grabbed some coffee, tea, and dessert and had a great evening full of caffeine, sugar, and lots of laughs. We had breakfast at OPH (I know…I’m obsessed!), went to the Museum of Flight, grabbed a drink and an appetizer at a fun lakeside restaurant, got ourselves ready for an early morning departure the next day, and relaxed at the homestead.
It was such a wonderful weekend filled with awesome weather, really yummy food, and a really delightful city. Everytime I come to Seattle for a visit, I am reminded how great I feel the moment I step out of the airport. There are a few cities so far where I have felt this way…it is definitely an important feeling to have for me when planning a permanent location for our future. Who knows, Seattle. You just might be a winner in a few years 🙂 I joked with Brett that I secretly wished the weather to be really horrid during our weekend visit…I wanted to know what rainy Seattle feels like! 😀
