Weekend review: Seattle shenanigans

This past weekend, I went to Seattle with my good friend Andrea! It was a whirlwind mini-vacation filled to the absolute brim with fun and randomness. I don’t know where to start, simply because it was all amazing. I couldn’t possibly pin down a favorite moment, but I can certainly list my top 5! 🙂

1. The Space Needle – our first stop in Seattle was to the very top of this chunk of metal. Painted orange for the 50th anniversary, the view was spectacular!

2. Public Market Center – the fish were great smelly, but the shopping was better. I found a re-purposed leather cuff with a bit of fur on it. It was a unique find! Also, the doughnuts simply can not go unmentioned. We ate 12 between us. Don’t judge.

3. Walking…everywhere! One of the beautiful parts of Seattle is that it is so walkable. And everything feels so natural. You’re in the city, but you’re also surrounded by mountains, rainforests, and parks! So here’s a pic of a blue tree. Don’t ask, I’m not sure either.

4. Random finds – like Portland, Seattle has it’s quirks. You just have to know where to look. Check out the Fremont troll. I’m not sure, but it’s fun and random!

5. And finally, the main reason for my trip out there…The Color Run. It comes highly recommended. Laughter, smiles, running, and color everywhere!

…and the color festival at the end.

All in all…simply amazing. Well done, Seattle. You’ve really impressed me and I will be back!
