Summer in the City

Today was my mom's actual birthday! We decided to spend another magical day in Seattle.  The sun was shining, the water was glistening, and the day flowed together into the perfect day. We started our Seattle adventure with yet another traffic jam. lol. But we made it down to the water for some delicious drinks.  Then we got set for our Argosy Cruise. We got to cruise around Lake Union and Lake Washington. After the cruise we walked down to Daniel's Broiler for some fine wine & delicious food.  We perhaps ended with some devine ice cream :)
Overall the day was amazing and it was so beautiful out!

Beautiful sailboat out on Lake Union
Our 'Pirate's Punch' :) at McCormicks & Schmicks

 A fabulous dinner at Daniel's Broiler - Space Needle in the distance.

Celebrating My Mom - Mentor & Best Friend

Today is the day before my mom's birthday! 
We celebrated it by spending the day together. 
We had dinner and drinks on the Seattle waterfront, and then went to a dance til dusk in Seattle. 
What a beautiful day celebrating my favorite woman. 
All the love I know in this world came from her.

Beautiful Lake Union - so fun watching the boats go by.
 Gotta love the Space Needle.

 Beautiful Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park.

The Bourne Legacy

My friend Elizabeth and I got to see The Bourne Legacy.  We thought it was good! Perhaps a chase scene that was a bit too long.  We got to talking.  Who's the better leader in a Bourne... Jeremy Renner or Matt Damon? Jeremy Renner makes quite a case.  Elizabeth was telling me he used to be a makeup artist.... what girl wouldn't want a girl to help her get a 'smoky eye'.   :)

True Blood

Last night was the True Blood finale of season 5.  I would have to say it is one of my favorite shows.  I literally have no idea what is ever going to happen, and the acting in it is really good.  I would have to say my favorite characters are Pam, Jessica & Eric.  Can't believe this season is already over...


Lunch Date

Having Lunch today with a good friend.. I got 'pose-y' before heading out. Still in love with these new sunglasses and these earrings add a bit of tough to a rather sweet outfit.

Mead Me Downtown

Living downtown has its ups and downs.  Being close to everything. Hearing crazy college kids late at night. Lots of coffee houses. But I'd say the pros definitely outweigh the cons.  Got to spend a great down on the town with one of my favorite couples.

Visiting Christan Grey - Escala

So, theres this little thing called Fifty Shades of Grey going around.  Its this book about this billionaire boy.  He supposedly lives in Seattle in the Escala condo building.  The book however may be quite heavy reading. . lol . but his fake condo is sure amazzzzing.  I went to see if he was there..

 Escala was a beautiful building.  It was just as perfect as one would think..

Oh, and also.... Matt Bomer for Christian Grey

Me.. Me... Me...

I just finished my physics final and I am feeling so so so so good about life right now.
I also treated myself to some shopppppping afterwards...  :) 
Got some new fabulous shoes & perfect cat eye sunnies.

 Notice - Vinny's shaved back - he was just too matted up
Oh, and I got this awesome, awesome bag that I am thinking is perfection for fall!
