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,

Happy Birthday to Me!

ModernMeowSept

Today is not only my birthday but my friend Brittany too!!!

I can’t believe that today I turn twenty three years old. Yesterday my birthday Twin surprised me with a ticket to see a taping of The Voice. Amazingly I got to see Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys and Adam Levine! They were so sweet and just as beautiful as I imagined. Alicia Keys was so loving when fans from the audience would yell out that they loved her she would just give the sweetest smile and mouthed I love you too.

We waited for almost three hours to get in and seat but it was an experience I will never forget. It was a perfect way to start off our birthday week.

I’m pretty excited to see what the week brings, I’m hoping that the universe sends me some luck.

Hello September!

YAY! It’s finally September!!!

Can you tell that I’m excited? Yesterday I was running an errand at Target and noticed all there Halloween stuff in the dollar section.

There was so much cute stuff I had to stop myself from getting overboard. I even got accepted for a Target credit card!! So I have to control myself from completely losing it at Target lol.

I got some window sticker to decorate my office and home. Today since it is the first day of September I decided to celebrate Halloween a month early. So far a few of my co-workers saw what I created and loved it.

Nothing makes me happier than decorating, it gives me a reason to use all my FIDM skills.

I hope you guys have a wonderful Thursday. Just remember one more day til the weekend!

 

Sincerely,

Happy Birthday Modern Meow!

 

Happy Anniversary-01

Today marks the first day I started my blog. I remember being afraid that no one was going to read it or that I wouldn’t receive any followers. But yesterday I got my 50th follower!

I am really proud of how much my blog has grown since I first started. There is much more in store for this blog I can’t help but feel excited for what the second year brings.

I want to thank all my followers and readers for supporting me and my dream. It has been stressful and there were many time I just wanted to quit. But once I see a new follower, a comment, or just a like; it makes it all worth it.

As I enjoy my day of hard work I welcome you to enjoy a piece of cake on my behalf!

Happy Birthday Modern Meow! I promise this second year will be fabulous!

 

Love,

Erika Ochoa

 

Survey for Modern Meow Designs

Hello my beautiful readers!

Today I decided to switch things up and ask you guys a design survey. Yesterday and this morning I have been focusing on creating a business card for myself. It has been a long two days trying to create something that I would approve of.

But since this project is too personal I’m going to need your help chosing a design. Each one is slightly different so be sure to take a good look at each of them.

Comment your favorite below.

I appreciated your time.

626 Night Market

Today started off with a nice hot coffee.

I woke up feeling the effects of having a fun weekend. It all started Friday night after work, we decided to go to the 626 night market. It was beyond tasty!

Right when we arrived we had no idea where to start. Our minds were being blown after seeing booth after booth. I found myself saying that I had to try that after every single one.

But like most night markets you get some things that were not worth trying. There were about two things that I found that were pretty delicious. For dinner we tried this Filipino chicken and beef BBQ skewers. It was the best Filipino BBQ I have ever had. The ratio of crispness and sauce was perfect!

For dessert I had this Thai rolled ice cream. Words can’t describe how amazing it was. Since it was rolled up, it was extremely creamy and light. Every spoonful was pure heaven! The guy who worked there highly recommended the Cookie Butter ice cream over any other creation.

So I took his advice and was extremely happy with it. The only bad thing is now I crave it. Hopefully I can find one near my apartment if not, then I’ll have to wait until September 626 night market.
