Hi there!

Hi! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm a 26 year old therapist, feminist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My shop, Dealign with Feelings, is geared toward destigmatizing and normalizing mental health. I'm biased, but I think we have some pretty cute stuff :) Click the "shop" tab to see what we've got! I mainly post about my travel and daily life on here. With other random musings thrown in. I post more frequently (and about more feminism) on my Instagram @emmycoletti, so make sure you're following me there. Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine's Weekend

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

These are the only two photos I took Valentine's weekend, so am I fired from blogging or what?!

We went up to Salt Lake and stayed in an Airbnb. It was so weird at first. I kept saying things like, "This is someone's house! This is his toothbrush! He sleeps in this bed!" He didn't put away any of his stuff to make it feel like a "hotel" lol. So, it was a little strange, but ultimately I really liked the experience. If anything, it was nice to get away for a night and have some space again. 

(Side note: Whenever people make comments about how small our apartment in New York is I just laugh. Like we're living in a palace right now?! Haha. We don't even have an apartment, so anything (even if it's 500 square feet) is going to be a step up. Actually, I have a lot to say about "things people say to us about New York" haha. They're not bad, just funny. Maybe I should make a video about that.)

Ok! Anyway! Places we ate:

Italian Village: We both got pizza benders (basically calzones) because that's what we had heard was good. Jake liked it, but I wasn't the biggest fan. I think it was the marinara? I'm so picky with marinara. I thought I hate spaghetti until I was 20 and realized I just don't like Ragu sauces lol. Anyway, we decided we probably wouldn't recommend it. We would rather make calzones at home. (We make killer calzones btw.)

The Original Pancake House: Jake goes here all the time with his work and is obsessed. I have only heard good things so I was excited to try it. I had the hardest time deciding between the cheese omelet, banana chocolate chip pancakes, and apple pancakes. I decided to do the cheese omelet and sub regular pancakes for the chocolate chip ones. The omelet was good, but nothing I would go there for. THE HASHBROWNS THOUGH. AND THE HOT CHOCOLATE. AND THE CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES. UGH IT WAS ALL SO GOOD. Jake would recommend the quevos rancheros and the banana pancakes. Go here. Just get up right now, walk out your door and drive/fly/sail to an Original Pancake House. 

Dog Haus: I know, we do a fancy V-Day dinner haha. If you know me, you know I grossly love hot dogs. There are like 0 places that sell veggie dogs though! Once Dog Haus opened I was craving it hardcore! Jake got a chili cheese dog (what else would you expect haha) and loved it. I got the downtown dog and wasn't the biggest fan. I think it was just a lot for my simple palate haha. THE BUNS WERE SO GOOD THOUGH. They were like, sweet and just, just heavenly. I want to go back and just do a regular ketchup and mustard dog. Oh, and they have fry sauce, so that's a definite benefit. Anyway, definitely would recommend them. 

There you have it! If you read all that then yay. You are a fellow foodie. If you just looked at the pictures and scrolled to the bottom, then yay. You are like me and read 80% of blogs for the pictures hahaha.

But yeah! That was our Valentine's weekend!
