My foodie list

Low Hanging Clouds in Seattle - Beautiful & Haunting!! - Space Needle - Seattle, Washington:

Just one more week and I’m off to Seattle! I find myself thrilled to be visiting another foodie place. So far my boyfriend and I have been doing our research.

Yesterday we watched Anthony Bourdain Layover episode featuring Seattle. About ten minutes into it and I had a fan girl moment when they mentioned one of the restaurants that I’m dying to go try. He raved about how delicious that place was and as I was watching my mouth couldn’t help but water.

So places that I feel we have to go to of course involve seafood. One of the places is named after one of my favorite books, The Walruses and the Carpenter. They are famously known for their oysters which is one of the things that Anthony Bourdain couldn’t get enough of. Then there is their night life which involves some weird and creative cocktails. There were so many featured on the show that I wouldn’t know which one to chose from.

But one place I know I have to stop for breakfast is Seatown Seabar & Rotisserie. They have some delicious crab meat there. Their crab eggs Benedict with a side of hash browns I heard is a must have. I know for a fact that my boyfriend won’t go against that idea because of his love for crab.

Another idea we have is to drive to Canada and have some sushi there since we heard that is the best place to have sushi. If not then we might make a spurge decisions and  go to Sushi Kashiba for  their omakase experience.

P.s. I heard that the restaurants at Seattle airport have the best clam and salmon chowder. So once we land I know that I will have to go and see for myself.

Seattle, Washington

This week I got some amazing news. My boyfriend told me that for our anniversary in February we will be going to Seattle!

Last year we celebrated it in Portland, Oregon and it was such a unforgettable vacation. When we were there we heard about Seattle and how beautiful it is over there. My boyfriend was completely sold on the idea when he heard about a fish market that tosses fish inside.

So now all I’m doing is counting down the days until it is time to take off. I fell in love with researching and planning out our days that I’m beyond excited that I get to do it all over again. If any of you are from Seattle or have ever been there I would love some recommendations on where you think we should go visit? I know that we are planning on eating the majority of our time there because after looking at yelp my taste buds can hardly wait.

Hope you all have a great Thursday. Just remember one more day until a new year arrives!

 

Love,

Erika

 

Valentine’s Day

Even though we went to Portland for our anniversary I couldn’t help but want to do something simple on our actual day. Since it falls on the most overpriced day of the month we thought let’s do something cheap and fun.

That did not happen…well at least not on my end. I love my boyfriend so much that sometimes I can’t help but want to spoil him. So I made a reservation to my baby’s favorite restaurant, Fogo De Chao. It is an all you can eat Brazilian BBQ place that has high quality meat.

After that we went home and changed for the next thing on our agenda. My boyfriend took me to one of his secret locations in P.V. (Palos Verdes). We hike down this steep mountain and managed to get to this fire pit that outlook the ocean. After almost freaking out twice getting there, I will say that the beautiful view was worth it.

My boyfriend got the fire going and I got our marshmallows ready. It was a perfect way to end our hike.

I ended the night by surprising my boyfriend with his present. I got him some Valentine day candy, Star Wars magazine and this photo I made of us.

It’s pretty crazy looking back at how we met and how instantly we connected. I was taken by surprised of how much happiness he has brought into my life. Sometimes I find myself at aww of how my life is now and how I couldn’t imagine it without him.

 

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s day!

D.I.Y. Valentine inspired Photo Pins

This week has been such an amazing week full of great news and excitement.

So I had some time to sit down and work on a small DIY project.

I wanted to create a cute display of photos that my boyfriend and I have taken since we have been together. I found these cute clothes pins at target for a dollar each. I thought it would be look cute if I hot glue gun them onto a thumb tack.

I decided I wanted them to be arranged on my corkboard. After gluing them I cleared my mood board of last years memories/ inspiration. I kept playing around with the placement of the clothes pins to see what would look best. If you don’t have a corkboard you can stop by Michael’s or Target and get yarn and hang them on it as a banner.



Hope you enjoyed my DIY for the week.

Love

Erika
