Meeting Abbey!

A few weeks ago, I got to meet a fellow blogger!

Abbey, from Finding my Forever, came to Seattle for a brief visit, and so Tim and I went to a Mariner's game with her and her fiance Pat!

I wish we got to see each other for longer!  Tim and I spent the weekend in Bend, OR, so we only had that night!!

Go check out her blog and here how her fiance proposed (on the same trip!).  They just hiked to the top of Mt St Helen's too!!  Fun!

Cabo, Cabo, Cabo!

Most of the time when I travel somewhere, I make it a point to visit all the attractions, get a feel for the culture of the area, and generally try to immerse myself a little.

But sometimes, you just need a vacation to take a vacation.

My neighbors agreed! So the three of us packed up and headed to Cabo for a long weekend!

The resort was beautiful!!  Right on the beach, giant pool, yummy restaurants, and all inclusive!!

We liked to watch people doing water aerobics while we stuffed our faces with cheese fries and chips and salsa!

And no trip to the beach is complete with out a photo shoot!

We also often embarrassed ourselves by ordering everything on the menu!

And yoga on the beach!!!
One afternoon, we decided to "stroll" into town for a tequila tasting!

It took us awhile to finally find it, but it was great!!!  Highly recommend it!!

This is our "we walked for over a mile in 100 degree weather and were sent to four different places looking for tequila tastings and have now found it, but now we need naps!" look
On our way home, we were surprised with an upgrade to first class!! Woo woo!

And btw, red wine with franzia is actually quite tasty!

All in all, it was a great weekend!  It was our first trip together, and the first of many more, I hope!!

Mother's Day Weekend

Sometimes weekends come together in the most perfect ways- combining relaxation, fun with friends, and new experiences!

One such weekend happened recently, and lets just start with the most exciting part: ordering every desert on the menu!!

There were five of us, five deserts on the menu, and we all wanted a different one!  How exciting!!!

This may have been way more exciting to me than anyone else.  My family never ordered desert when we went out to eat so it was a whole new world to me when I grew up.  Now I almost always order desert yum yum!!
We all had also gone to see Neighbors the night before!  Not together, but at the same time (it was really funny!)!

After dinner, Tim and I went to go see the Seattle Rock Orchestra perform the White Album!

Sunday was Mother's Day!  We all (my parents, grandma, uncle's family, and Tim's parents) went to Ivar's for a buffet brunch. 

Afterwards, we took our parents to Fremont Brewery so they could play with Mia!
My mom made me this not so subtle reminder that Mia is her only grandchild.
Then finally, Tim and I met up with my work husband and his girlfriend to finally meet his parents for the first time!

All in all, a great weekend!!
