Seattle Seattle Seattle

We just took what has seemed to become our yearly trip to Seattle this past week. The weather was AMAZING (we seem to get lucky that way.) The majority of our trip was spent eating and drinking coffee of course, but we did manage to venture out to Bainbridge Island and Snoqualmie during our stay! I absolutely love Washington, the people are so nice and there really is nothing like being surrounded by trees. It was Valentine's day during our stay and the whole city seemed to be bursting with flowers, hearts, and lovers so that of course was wonderful to take in! :) We also found ourselves some cool new spots in Fremont and did some karaoke! I of course am biased but I would say that this is the perfect little vacation destination if you are a city lover like myself. 

I snapped a ton of pictures, enjoy! 

Quick Trip to Santa Barbara

The Mr. had two random days off this week (maybe because he worked 12 days straight last week :) ) so I was able take two days off myself and enjoy them with him in Santa Barbara! Funny enough, despite living close enough to visit often we rarely head out that way! 

We stopped in Carpinteria for breakfast at this place called Busy Bee Cafe, which is family owned and delicious! We spent some time on the beach and then headed to Santa Barbara for a little relaxation and shopping! 

Days off with my husband are my FAVORITE, especially when we get to eat some tasty food and take in some new scenery. :) 



Sunday in a Comfy Dress

This Sunday we went to the Malibu Farm Cafe and parked realllllyyyy far so we could walk and enjoy the views. I enjoy Malibu but I will say that Sunday's are crazy busy so if you are looking to ever go there, try and avoid the weekend. :) Today while I'm teaching I will most definitely be daydreaming about lattes on the pier with my hubby!

I normally stick to "quiet" colors and don't like super bright patterned things but when I saw this on sale at Zara I decided i'd mix it up a bit! I'm usually drawn to black, white, and stripes (I own about 100 striped shirts, dresses, and blouses) and less feminine attire. Anyway, I was out and about on a 90+ degree day and this was as comfy as could be for the weather/occasion! 

I got a ton of compliments on it so I guess the moral of the story is: step out of your comfort zone and you'll be surprised at the outcome :)
