It was actually a pretty eventful weekend, for us. Friday night (which we usually spend on the couch after an inevitably exhausting week) we had dinner at one of my Ballard favorites, Bastille, with my dear friend Sheena and her husband, Nick. We got to hear all about their honeymoon, new puppy, plans for the future, and did a little college reminiscing. The hours just flew by and it was such a fun evening (with delicious food and drinks to boot!)
Saturday morning Stew and I went for a long walk down to Golden Gardens and then I met up with my mom for a little furniture shopping for the new house. I found an absolutely perfect arrangement for the downstairs living room at Pacific Furniture Gallery in Southcenter. It will include a sofa, love seat, chair, ottoman and throw pillows for a really great price that is available until the end of the month. I loved this store because the pieces are locally custom made exactly to your specifications (our set will come from Stanton Sofas in Oregon). Once we place our order it can be delivered to us in just about seven weeks. We still have a lot of furniture left to purchase but I think this is a great start!
Later that night Tony and Nikki had us over for dinner with a few other couples at Tony's house in West Seattle. Everything was homemade from scratch and absolutely delicious... we had to roll ourselves home.
Sunday started off bittersweet with a goodbye breakfast for Crystal at Palomino. Since she got married Crys has still been coming back to work in Bellevue for the first two weeks of every month and spending the rest of her time with the hubby in Roseburg, Oregon. But the time has come for her permanent move down south and of course I am tragically depressed. But at the same time I am so happy and excited for them to truly start their lives together, because I know going back and forth hasn't been easy. And we've got lots of trips planned together so hopefully the adjustment won't be too rough on me. But I miss her already!
The Seahawks playoff game that afternoon against the Redskins was quite a nail biter, and I couldn't get poor Stew to sit down for even a minute of it, he just paced up and down in front of the TV. But not to worry, Russell and the guys pulled out a 24-14 win and we move on this week to play the Falcons. Go Hawks! (PS, we felt so old when some of the players were saying they weren't even ALIVE the last time the Hawks won a road playoff game in 1983).
I managed to oversleep this morning had to frantically rush to Breakfast Club with Heather and Lindsee... never how you want to start a Monday morning. But luckily I had pre-packed my lunch and I have big plans this week to hit the gym again now that my sickness seems to be about 95% gone.
We hope everyone had a lovely weekend and has a great week!
