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

 

Snap Chattin

Some say that when you finally accept yourself you truly become happy.

For most of us it’s a journey that can take a little longer than others. For once I finally fell in love with Snap Chat. It can be so hard to be yourself on social media let alone the internet. People concisely judging you and if you doing blogging as well you know the struggle of bring attention to your blog. I always feel like I selling myself and never can truly be myself.

So when I decided to give Snap Chat another chance it really surprised me.

I love using their Geo-Filters and sharing my stories with others. I felt like it forced me out of my shell (social media wise). Like the other day I shared a 30 second video of me singing along using one of the filters. To tell you the truth it was really fun. I stopped caring if people thought I was a good singer or who saw it. It became more about having fun than being amazing at it.

So I wanted to share this little thing that has bought me joy lately. Comment below what your secret joy is and feel free to like it.

Modern Meow Updates

Good Afternoon!

Today I thought I would share with you guys my blogger schedule.

With careful consideration I decided that Monday, Wednesday and Fridays I will be posting new content. I’m still debating if I want a theme/ category for each day or if I will make it random content.

I’m so excited to share my new vision of Modern Meow with you these upcoming weeks.

Stay tune for more updates 🙂

Detox Tuesdays

I don’t know about you but this Tuesday seems so draining.

Since today is my early day I am planning on a nice cleaning day. For me I love detoxing well…cleaning detoxing. I see my personal space as a reflection of my mind. So cleaning helps me mentally detox.

Strangling I love vacuuming, laundry and doing the dishes. Those specific chores somehow make me feel relaxed and calm. I especially love doing the dishes with my music blasting. It lets me sing and dance away all my problems.

So if you are like me and feel drain take a moment to do something for you.

Here is my current favorite song that has been motivating me lately.

Portland Bookmarks

Words can’t describe how excited I am to get the chance to visit Portland. My boyfriend and I have been doing so much research about what we should do once we get off the plane.

On yelp we read reviews and bookmark the places we wanted to try out. Let me say that once we saw all that delicious food we started drooling.

Here are some places we are going to go visit.

Portland’s famous farmers market:

Salt and Straw:

The one thing that I’m dying to try is their Bone Marrow ice cream. Yes, you read correctly BONE MARROW. This ice cream was featured in many food network shows like Unique Eats. I am also going to try their Honey Lavender. If you think that it can’t get better, you are wrong. They make their own fresh waffle cones there as you are placing your order.

  • If you feel overwhelmed with all their amazing flavors then you can always get the ice cream Flights. It allows you to 4 pick flavors you want to try

Blue Star Donuts:

This is a local hot spot where many come and get their daily coffee and donut. Blue Star Donuts - Portland, OR, United States. Creme brûlée donut.

 

Norma’s Seafood & Steak:

Portland is also known for their delicious sea critters. The dishes from Norma’s looked so mouth watering. I drooled over their crabs, halibut fish and chips and crab salad

Screen Door:

This place is known for their brunch which happens to be my favorite meal. I am dying to try their fried chicken and waffles.

There is so much food to try and places to see that this is not even the half of it.

I even joked with my mom and told her that I will definitely be gaining weight while I’m over there.

Yolo,

Erika
