Moving to America.

Just kidding. I freaking wish!

As you all know, it was a long weekend in Canada and it was one for the books.

I went to Seattle with some of my best friends. Just a short trip but it was dreamy.

Jeremy and I stayed at the Olympic Hotel and oh swoon. It’s a beautiful hotel, quite the institution really, and our room had a view of the Space Needle. #winning

Andy, Ryan, Dave, Jer, and I hit up the Mariners/Red Sox game. Always a blast. Surprisingly the Mariners won (they never win) so that always makes things great. Not to mention that the weather over the weekend was unreal!

Following the game, I finally got a chance to meet Brittany. We’ve been “blog friends” for almost 3 years now and I can’t believe we haven’t met before. Mostly because I had felt like we had, it really was like catching up with an old friend.

Btw, her American accent is the best and it was unexpected :) shhhh, I didn’t tell her about this. I’m sure I sounded very very Canadian to her too.

Later that night, we went out to restaurant called Purple Cafe & Wine Bar. It was actually amazing. Great wine, great food, and great company – what more could you want?!

Followed by a stroll and more drinks.

Monday morning it was Jeremy’s 27th birthday. He’s getting old, I know.

He dragged me out of our king sized bed for a run (he would). He took off at lightening speed while I struggled to keep up, perfect. I’m really good at ruining someone’s perfect birthday run. Whoops.

Anyway, showered up and headed to Lola. One of my favourites in Seattle.

Bloody Mary’s, coffee, mini doughnuts, traditional breakfast, and all the coffee.

Quick pit stop at Pike’s and then it was back to Canada.

Once we got back to Canada late that night, we stopped off at Jer’s parent’s house for a bit of cake and birthday fun.

Only to have a gorgeous sunset coming back into the city.

Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend!

….ps, sorry I’ve been MIA again. #life
