the not so perfect storm...

 
We headed on over to West Seattle today to celebrate a family birthday, a family member returning from living abroad, and since we made the trek all the way over there we had to make a stop at the beach. Well, technically it was the board walk since the tide was up so we got a great view of Seattle before the rain came. Good thing we had an umbrella with us.

take me out to the t - ball game. ..

Ethan's little league team,  the Super sonics, just had their first jamboree. It was a pretty cold one but he got to meet his team members and hit and throw. He seemed to enjoy it and had fun. That's what matters most right?

what's old is new again...

A few of my friends invited me to attend a vintage market this past weekend and it was actually a lot of fun. The weather was not that great but luckily it was indoors,  actually in a barn which definitely set the ambiance.

There were several vendors there showing their goods and it was really hard not to go on a spending spree. Especially how everything was set up. It was definitely my style but thankfully I did not bring enough cash.  Who knew you needed cash at a flee market?  Not this girl.

My favorite food truck was also there,  Here and there, and I exposed my friends to the black bean sliders. So good!

I did come out of it with one purchase though, flowers!

sewing and stuff...

A few weeks ago I was discussing with a friend about infinity scarfs. We were contemplating the different fabric elements that could be put together. During that conversation I got the bright idea to make my own. I have a sewing matching that I am always itching to use but never can decide what I want to make. I hit the fabric stores a few weeks ago to look for fabric combinations that fit well together.


Luckily, I had some free time available and was able to make several. I can't wait to make more, especially with spring and summer fabrics.

coughs and sniffles...

When you are feeling sick, good thing we have pets to help cheer us up. Hope everyone has a great weekend. We will be laying low and getting rid of the sick plague. This boy really needs to go back to school.

dinner with the chef at victoria & alberts...

 
 
When we had made up our minds about traveling to Disney World, Jeff and I both agreed that we needed to have a date night while there. What better place to have it at than Victoria & Alberts at the Disney Grand Floridian Resort. This is a highly coveted dining reservation in Disney, especially the chef's table. We had eaten in the dining room on a couple of previous occations and figured we would be lucky if we were going to be able to get a reservation for that since we were traveling over a pretty crowded park week.

Thankfully for us, we were staying onsite which gave me a few days ahead to try to book a table at the restaurant. I went online the day that we were able to start making reservations and put in our time frame, not really expecting that I would be able to book it. But low and behold, when the screen came up the chef's table was actually free and I booked it on the spot. This one is usually impossible to get since the restaurant only allows one booking a night and you get to actually eat at a private table in the kitchen.




Enough about the reservation though. I will go ahead and leave you with the food details and pictures. All ten courses of them with wine. Click below for more details...
