As always, too much to do, and not enough day. Or me. Hah!
Last weekend, the Mister & I booked a rare, last-minute (literally) weekend down in Seattle, to attend the Home Show… It was mostly contractors and service providers that serve the Seattle area… We learned a few things, but I was kind of disappointed (in the show itself), to be honest… I guess I thought it would be bigger (I mean, Seattle, right?!), and there would be more manufacturers exhibiting? I thought we’d see a lot more innovative design kinds of things… like faucets, lighting, flooring and countertops, storage solutions… It was interesting for us to note that in the area we live, there is such high demand that contractors and builders have full/booked out schedules…
But, it was a fun weekend and we enjoyed a few restaurants that we’d never been to before–we love good eats! :)
In the downtown area, check out Lola’s and/or Dahlia Lounge. We had fantastic and out-of-the-ordinary breakfasts at each of these places! And, based on the crowds, they are both very popular dining spots–I imagine their lunch and dinner dishes are equally fabulous!
My dad always kids me that what I call coffee, is really “glorified cocoa”… He drinks it black, and I can’t drink it at all without all the fun stuff (you know, the stuff that slathers the pounds to your behind). Whatever, Dad! *hair flip* ;)
Nevertheless, I love my coffee, and I love coffee stamps, and these ideas for coffee cards with the “Oh, frappé!” stamp set just keep swirling in my head.
Like most of my favorite cards, this one is pretty simple–and relatively clean! *chuckle*
Hope your week has been good–I’m excited about a weekend getaway with the Mister, that includes the Home Show… We finally have a contractor lined up and are starting the remodel on our house… I’m excited and terrified all at the same time… Bracing myself for lots of idea overload… And wine. Hah!
