Hello lovelies! It’s a start to a new week and I’m feeling a tad bit less overwhelmed from the previous week. Finally had time to upload my pictures from last weekend so wanted to share some highlights of what I did.
I always link my iPhone editing apps on all my iPhone picture posts
so you can find the apps I use but to start: all pictures are taken by me with the iPhone and edited with the Camera Bag app
and the white borders for this post was done on photoshop. I usually use the hipstamatic app
but didn’t this time. Kinda over it.
Started Friday with some antique shopping with the hubs in Georgetown. Bought some gorgeous jewelry and fell in love with other stuff that we can only dream of bringing home with us.
Found these cute Mod type posters on our walk, love them!
Then dinner at Betty’s with the hubs.
Yummy martini to go with dinner
When I’m not traveling for work I like to paint my nails crazy colors and have been doing this thing of painting only one nail a different color. I don’t know why but I like it!
The next day, I started with a super duper relaxing massage that was much needed. After my massage, I stopped by Macrina Bakery
for some of the best pastries ever. No joke, if you like pastries, Macrina is a must go. I brought them home to hubs but no pictures, Miss Piggy (me) ate them too fast.
Met a friend for drinks at Cicchetti, who had me dying laughing over her tales of drunken nights and bad dates.
Found some time to bake oatmeal raisin cookies. Miss Piggy ate 2 and then took this picture 😉
Made my dad a card. Okay, J made it for me, I just wrote in it. 🙂 Isn’t it cute?
J and I took my family out for dinner for Father’s Day. After dinner, my brother treated all of us to Toy Story 3 in 3D at the IMAX theater at the Space Needle. It was so cute, go see it if you haven’t yet!
The IMAX is actually at the Pacific Science Center (by the Space Needle) which is easily recognizable by these white structures.
AAAAND back to my regular Monday mornings which my view is always a variation of this… looking out of an airplane window. The only thing that helps is that I fly first class. If I had to fly coach on a Monday morning I would show up at the office as Oscar the Grouch!
I had a nightmare travel day last Friday that consisted of flying into Canada in the morning for a meeting, the meeting going too long which made me miss my flight back home, booking new flights that cost the same as the round trip ticket, rerouting me to a different city in Canada, walking the distance of the entire airport to get to US customs and then finally getting back home 5 hours later than I if I had made my original (direct) flight. UGH! I swear I aged 5 years just in that one day of travel hell. I appeased my stress and frustration by stuffing myself with Canadian candy and fashion magazines. Got to make the best of the situation right? 🙂
Crossing my fingers that this week’s trip will be less eventful!
