20something wine event

For the past 3 years (I think...) Nick and I have gone to this event in Seattle called 20something The New Vintage.  You buy a ticket and then you get a wine glass and sample Washington wines.

There are over 75 wineries pouring their wines, a number of different restaurants with food to sample and a DJ.

We will be returning next year!

Also, great version of a healthier mac and cheese I found at Cooking Light - here.  And the dress I wore at Meredith's 11.11.11 party was borrowed from my friend Jessica and it's from Express!

11.11.11 birthday bash

My friend Meredith's birthday is on Nov. 11 so with such a cool date - 11.11.11 - she threw herself a fantastic birthday bash.  

It was a black and white themed party held downtown event space.  Good food, drinks, music, a champagne toast at 11:11 p.m. and even a cupcake bar - seriously she went all out! Such a fun night and the perfect way to kick off the weekend!

Week in review

Bring on Friday!  We supposedly have a little wind storm coming through Seattle so I came armed with my Hunter boots and rain jacket, but so far all is quiet here.

A highlight of my week was Where In The World Is Matt Lauer! I love this series and my favorite location was Jungfraujoch, Swiss Alps:

The Swiss Alps have been called the visible throne of God - and wow, I can certainly see why.  I thought Malaysia was pretty cool too but I think Switzerland just jumped up a few notches on our travel list.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and of course - a huge thank you to all our veterans who selflessly give to protect our country.  (Especially my dad!!!)

Weekend update

Hope everyone had a great first weekend of November - I can't believe it's practically mid-November! I haven't done a weekend update in a while but I had such a great weekend I had to do a blog post!

On Friday night my friend Angela, her husband Jake and their adorable twin babies came over to Seattle for a visit!  So Friday night a big group of us went out to a little Mexican restaurant called La Carta de Oaxaca in Ballard.  It was really great food and obviously really popular as the wait was about an hour for our gruop.  Afterwards we went to a French restaurant/bar called Bastille.  And I realized when we were there that exactly 2 years ago Nick and I were in France - le sigh!  (And I realized I never finished blogging about that trip - maybe someday I'll finish it!  haha!)

Saturday we did the UW football game and sadly lost to Oregon, but it was a really great game to watch!  And it was the last one in our old stadium before it goes under a $250 million renovation.


And Sunday continued with fun with a girls lunch at Homegrown!  And Where In The World Is Matt Lauer is starting this week - so excited!  I so wish I could tag along on all his awesome travels.
