Friday night we went to an awesome Mexican restaurant where we indulged in the best margarita I have ever had. The shrimp tacos were fabulous too!
On Saturday we made the trek to Mt. Vernon, WA to go to the tulip festival. It was quite the adventure with some crazy traffic. The freeway was backed up for miles & miles! I didn't realize how popular tulips are! I learned that people in Mt. Vernon take their tulips quite seriously. All of the colors were absolutely amazing! I still can't figure out which tulip was my favorite- but I think I like the pink ones (of course).
We were both famished after walking around the tulip fields so we each got a chocolate and Bavarian cream funnel cake. Oh my! It was the best funnel cake I have ever had!
On our way home we stopped at the Seattle Factory outlet to do some retail therapy. I really needed some retail therapy. I bought some super cute jeans and didn't realize how much I have shrunk in size since the last time I bought jeans! I haven't been a size 25/26 since college when I was a double zero. Insane! I was definitely liking my booty in my new jeans. Now if I wasn't so short, I could wear my new jeans now. Unfortunately I have to get all of my jeans hemmed. Annoying? YES. :-)
However, the BEST purchase of the day was my Kate Spade purse that I got for $300 off!!!! Seriously, I am not joking. What a crazy good deal! I have ALWAYS wanted a Kate Spade so I was beyond thrilled. Yes, I almost did a "happy dance" around the store. I am BIG DORK!
Saturday night we hit up the most amazing sushi restaurant in downtown Seattle where I proceeded to stuff my face with sushi. I also may have had a gin martini...or two. We both commented as we were leaving that we had huge food babies and needed to be in sweats STAT. LOL. :-)
I woke up on Sunday thinking "holy crap! 7 days until Eugene!!!!". Eeeek! I can't believe that at the end of this next week I will have run my 4th and hopefully my best marathon yet. I had 10 miles at marathon pace on the schedule so we drove over to Green Lake. It was another beautiful day in Seattle and everyone and their dog was outside. Had to do a lot of weaving through people because their was also some type of walk a thon event going on that had hundreds of participants. Hence, why there was no parking and we had to park over a half a mile away. Oh well! :-)
Leaving Seattle with 71 degrees....arrived to Spokane with 83 degrees. What a perfect day!
I got these 2 t-shirts at the NIKE outlet...I thought they were good running mojo shirts! :-)
Questions for you:
Has anyone else braved the crazy traffic to go to the tulip festival in Mt. Vernon?
Did you do anything fun over the weekend?
