Guys, I loved the Seattle Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon so much! What a great race. I would definitely run this one again! Ok, let me give you a little rundown… The race offered 3 different distance options this year– 8k, half marathon, and marathon– so even more runners of varying abilities could participate. Love this. The race started and finished at Seattle Center, which was especially cool for an out-of-towner like me. Good morning, Space Needle! The race started at…

Ok, let’s start from the beginning! Our little family flew to Seattle to visit Mal’s sister and her husband for a few days during Mal’s school vacation. It was Quinn’s first flying experience, so we were excited, but a tad nervous too. Mal and I were super duper organized for this trip (detailed post coming soon), so we were calm and collected when we arrived at the airport. Parking, luggage, security, yada yada… it all went great. We had…

I totally took a break from my camera/blogging while I was away. I’m usually a photo freak and snap pictures of everything, but, this time, I just lived life and enjoyed it without documenting every little thing. It was definitely a nice change of pace, but, I have to admit, I wish I took more photos that I actually did. (I didn’t even take a photo of the bride and groom! Isn’t that terrible? We…

Yesterday was all about eating, drinking, and being merry””which I guess is the main point of BlogHer Food, right? Well, I’m glad I enjoyed my time to the fullest! After the morning session, Monica and I visited Pike’s Place Public Market, which was just a few blocks from the hotel. It was a beautiful and sunny Saturday afternoon, so the place was absolutely packed”” like shoulder-to-shoulder frat party packed. Even still, I enjoyed the sights and sounds…

Seattle is such a cool city. The vibe is totally chill and laid-back here. I love it. Once the third session of the conference ended yesterday afternoon, I changed into my sneakers and then met Monica and Kath for a little exercise. Our plan was to walk 1.3 miles to the Five Bamboo offices for a visit, but, somehow, I managed to get us lost””even though I used the map for directions on my iPhone….

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.) Breakfast 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…

Mal was so excited about snowboarding today, he didn’t sleep all that much last night. In fact, he woke up at 5:00 AM and then woke me up to tell me just how excited he was””even though we didn’t need to wake up for another 1.5 hours. Isn’t he sweet? (The whole thing was actually pretty cute. Mal was like a kid on Christmas morning!) Breakfast We planned to hit the road to Mount Baker…

Hi, friends! We have lots of catching up to do””and I have a fun giveaway at the end of this post for you! OK, let’s get to it! Yesterday morning, Mal, Sibylle (Mal’s sister), Coleman (Sibylle’s fiancé), and I started our drive to Mount Baker. Since it was about 3 hours from Seattle, we planned to spend the day exploring Bellingham and then stay overnight there (at a hotel), so we could hit the road bright…

Hi, friends! I woke up to the fuzzy face of a cutie-pie Golden Retriever this morning. Brody is the sweetest pup! Once we got out of bed, Mal and I took a quick trip to Caffe Ladro for iced coffees. The last time we were in Seattle a few years ago, we fell in love with their coffee, so it was a priority to visit this morning. I added soy milk to my iced coffee….

For Father’s Day, we (Mal, his father, sister, step-mother, grandmother, and I) celebrated with a late brunch at Salty’s on Alki Beach. I’ve never been to a restaurant like Salty’s before. It’s truly in a class all by itself. The view is one of the best in Seattle and the seafood and friendly, attentive service is one of the best I have encountered ever.  Salty’s is known for its impressive Sunday brunch buffet. I’m not…

Hello from the Victoria Clipper IV! The Clipper is so cool! What a fun way to travel! Interesting facts about the Clipper: The Victoria Clippers are some of the world’s fastest catamarans. The speed of the Clipper is about 35 miles per hour. The 71-mile voyage between Seattle and Victoria takes about 2.5 – 3 hours. For breakfast, I grabbed a quick egg and cheese sandwich on an English muffin. I didn’t snap a pic…

My father-in-law turned 64-years-young today. Happy birthday, Garner!!! We’ve been eating out so much, we decided to celebrate with a low-key dinner at Sibylle’s condo, which was an excellent way to spend the evening. It was so nice to just chill with family.  We started with a cocktail hour and appetizers: cheese & crackers and hummus & cucumbers.  We toasted to the birthday boy with a round of white wine.  This was a delicious wine! …

Hi, guys! I am loovvving Seattle! I’ve taken lots of pics, but I haven’t blogged much because of my uploader issue. But, just this morning, I found a way around it! I used Ecto to upload my photos then published them to my blog and it worked! Sweet!  I’m a little behind on my posts, but here are some of the highlights from yesterday’s adventures. (You guys can also follow my vacation on Twitter!) Cafe Ladro Before breakfast…

As expected, Sibylle’s 30th birthday bash was a total BLAST! 😀 The night included all of the essential party elements: an attractive venue, tasty eats, a special drink menu, a heartfelt slideshow, an active dance floor, and non-stop good times with family and friends. From the look of it, everyone really enjoyed themselves! The party was held at Sole Repair in the First Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Sole Repair is a private event facility with a sort of Manhattan loft feel…

I LOVE Seattle!!! What a fun city! Unfortunately, my stupid WordPress/Flash photo uploader is broken, so I can’t upload all of my photos from the day. Well, I can, but only one at a time and it takes for-ever. If you have any idea how to fix this problem, please let me know! I did, however, manage to upload my favorite photo of the day! This afternoon, I met Pebbles the pug at the Summer…
