Our final day in Seattle involved a mixture of chillin’ and relaxin.’ Just check out Brody chillaxin in the backyard!
(Apparently, I’m a big dork and find the word ”˜chillaxin’ much cooler than it actually is.)
Once again, my morning started with coffee from (super awsome) Caffe Ladro. This time, I went with a misto made with soy milk, and, as expected, the coffee was bold, delicious, and wonderful. Man, I’m really going to miss their coffee. We need a Caffe Ladro on the East coast!
To eat, Coleman made his mother’s special (and secret) German Pancake recipe.
Look at this thing! It was massive!
And incredibly delicious! I actually ended up eating three servings of it (along with fruit salad and turkey bacon). I had no idea that I liked German Pancakes so much. This breakfast = holy yum.
After breakfast, we puttered around the house, listened to music, Googled random things, took showers, got dressed, drank more coffee. Meanwhile, Brody played with his stuffed dinosaur and then passed out in the middle of the kitchen floor with it in his mouth.
How adorable is that?!
A few hours later, we some errands around town, which included buying groceries for dinner and grabbing lunch at a Whole Foods/Dean & Deluca-type market with an amazing prepared foods selection and salad bar.
Obviously, I went with the salad bar. I love huge ones with all of the fixings. I just can’t help myself. Honestly, I didn’t even look at the other lunch options and went straight for the salad bar.
To drink, I bought a bottle of white green tea. Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of it. It tasted grassy to me. Blech.
I finished off lunch with a Lindt chocolate truffle. Mmm!
After lunch, the four of us took Brody for a walk at a nearby park close to the waterfront. It was a beautiful area with ocean views, green space, and walking/running/biking paths. Mal and I both fell in love with it.
As a thank you to our hosts, Mal and I cooked dinner at home last night. On the menu: Feta-Walnut Stuffed Cucumbers.
Soy-Glazed Cod and roasted Brussels sprouts.
Delish! Sib and Coleman both said they really liked dinner. Hooray!
After dinner, we met up with a few of Sib and Coleman’s friends at a DOG BAR (we brought Brody) for a couple of drinks before they took Mal and Me to the airport for our red eye flight home. Now, we’re sitting in the Charlotte airport waiting to board our flight to Boston. We’re almost home! I can’t wait to see Murphy!!!
