Living My 10th Grade Dream

Last night we got some dessert (!!!) and walked around the lake. It's wild because I remember visiting my uncle in Seattle when I was in 10th grade and thinking, "If I could live anywhere, I would live by Green Lake in Seattle." 

And now, 10 years later, I live 15 minutes away! Like whaaaaa. I am so happy to feel like I have finally found "my place"... and now I'm just hoping it stays "my place" when it gets all gross and rainy lolololol. 

So Blank Space cafe definitely needs to be added to your list! They have v delish ice cream and you can add such fun toppings! And then go walk around the lake for a bit! We saw they have kayaks and want to go back!

It has been a really good summer and I would be lying if I said I wasn't excited for a moody, rainy fall! I just need to get Tucker a little raincoat and then we're all set haha.

D8 Nite

Our nice neighbors gave us a gift card and we finally drove downtown to use it a few weekends ago! I was all "it will take so long to get downtown... parking will be expensive..." but PLOT TWIST because it took us like 15-25 minutes on a Friday and parking was literally $1 hahahahah. 

I'm like ?!?!?!? We need to go downtown more often!!

We went to TanakaSan and it was pretty good! I got a bento box that had salmon, rice, potato, blueberries, pickles, kimchi, deviled egg... and some other stuff!  

If you have any recommendations for stuff in downtown Seattle, let me now!

Chopping My Hair + Pike's Market

We went downtown last weekend and it was really fun! We hadn't been to Pike's yet since moving here and figured it was time. We met up with Jake's cousin at Biscuit Bitch first and it was really good! I got an egg and cheese and veggie sausage sandwich. While I do love me a good fake meat, next time I want to try the veggie biscuits and gravy. 

After brunch I got my hair cut (pics below!) and went to Pike's market. They didn't have my favorite dried fruit logs, but they did have super pretty flowers! We also stopped in at a magic shop, which I want to go back to for its photo booth!

We tried the cinnamon rolls from Cinnamon Works and it was really good! 

Ok so my haircut! I was slightly nervous about it, but am so glad I did it! It feels so nice and healthy and I feel like it suits me a bit more than my long hair. My bangs always style weird right after but I love the way she cut them and will def not be cutting my own bangs from here on out lol. If I could give anyone a life lesson, it would be: Find a hair stylist who does free bang trims and never cut your own bangs again lol. 

This picture was a joke lol. I told Jake about how girls are after they get their nails done and how they like to touch things a certain way bc cute nails. And with a cute nails cute hair combo CAN'T STOP ME NOW. Side note: One of my clients had lilac nails and I loved them so I went and bought the Ella Mila lilac color from Target and I loveeeeeee them.

Boardman Lake

Last Saturday we drove up to Boardman Lake for a little hike. We decided to go last minute so we took Tucker, and TBH we will be sending him to doggy day care when we want to go on a hike in the future. He wasn't very good on his leash, but it was only a mile and a half so definitely doable! 

Also of note is our nav took us to the wrong place but I had screen shotted the directions at the last minute thank goodness haha. We eventually went up a dirt road and there were a bunch of potholes. I was getting a little panicky but then NO JOKE we saw a Tesla come down hahahahahaha. Jake was like ?!?!? We think he tried to go up it and then turned around, because there is NO WAY he made it all the way to the trail and back in a Tesla.

Date Night

A few weeks ago, we got Veraci pizza to go and watched The Matrix. Now I want to watch all the Keanu Reeves movies lol. Also, if you have any recommendations for wood fired pizza, please comment them down below!

Carkeek Park

A few weeks ago we went over to Carkeek park to beat the heat. We sat on some rocks and talked for a bit before going home for a movie night. I've realized living near the ocean is something I really love.
