Ivy, Jessamyn, Lindsay, Heather, Angela, Ashley, Meghan, Jessica, Courtney, Joleen, Erin (master planner of the weekend), Tara, Merrilee, Baillie and Brynn - thank you so much for the most amazing weekend a girl could ask for! It was the perfect bachelorette weekend and made possible by you all. I don't think words could express how thankful I am for you all...
A few girls couldn't make it due to other commitments, but they were there in spirit, including fellow bloggers Michelle and Carrie.
Lots more pics and recaps to come but for now I've got to have dinner, do laundry and watch LOST!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Finding my dream bedroom was easy for me - I just opened the Pottery Barn website! I love the look of a clean, simple, organized bedroom like this. The bookshelves, fireplace, mirrors - perfection!
And my bedding, the Pottery Barn Pearl Collection in sandelwood (which just happens to be my new bedding - well from my registry!)
Check out The Seattle Smiths to add your dream bedroom!

I made Ina Garten's spanakopitas (really easy to do once you get used to using phyllo dough)
And I also made Martha Stewart's mini Greek lamb burgers which my friend Erika made last week too.

So, this restaurant is quite the fancy place in town so you can imagine my excitement when I saw they were participating in Seattle's Restaurant Week - where you can get a three course dinner for $25 per person! Score!! I made reservations immediately and I am so glad I did because shortly thereafter they ran out of reservations spots and had to close their waiting list at 80 groups!
It was such a perfect meal and I have my meal to share:
Getting excited for dinner (a jacket for men is required)...
We first had an amuse bouche of a gazpacho soup and then the award winning Canlis salad. And their website even gives you the recipe - check it out here! I will for sure be making this at home sometime.
Truffle fries (given to us on the house by our amazing waiter, Chris)
Nick's entree of halibut
My entree of braised lamb with homemade fettuccine
My dessert was a vanilla creme brulee (the congratulations was for Nick and my 5-year dating anniversary)
Nick's dessert was shortcake
I am so ready to go back and maybe they'll be participation in Restaurant Week again which happens in October!
