Royal Wedding Perfection

A  very sleep deprived blog post - but oh it was so worth it!  To be perfectly honest, I been obsessed with everything Royal Wedding since the day they got engaged and have loved following all the coverage.

My friends Meghan, Brynn, Megan and myself gathered at 1 a.m. to watch all of the festivities live and had a blast.  We drank tea, had biscuits, tea sandwiches and popped the champagne when Kate arrived at Westminster Abbey and toasted to the bride.  It was so fun watching the event curled up on the couch with friends and squealing with excitement all morning long.

I thought Kate was absolute perfection and looked stunning in that amazing dress.  Love her!  Did other people stay up and watch?  What did you think of the dress?  I loved it - classic and perfect!

Tahitian honeymoon day 10: Goodbye to Bora Bora

The day had come - our last in paradise before the 11 hour journey back to reality.  Back to Seattle we go and onward to a happy lifetime together!

Tahitian honeymoon day 9: Bora Bora over water bungalow

Since this was the one (and most likely only) trip of my life I will ever stay in a room over the water, I figured I would do some pictures of our over water bungalow.

Our bungalow:

Since I didn't do the best job of taking pictures indoors I stole some from the hotels website


 And our hotel was the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa - good times! 

Happy Easter

My post is a little delayed, but nonetheless - Happy Easter to everyone!  Christ is risen!  

We had a burst of beautiful sun for the weekend, perfect for BBQing with friends Michelle and her fiance master chef Bobby!  Before that Nick and I spent the whole afternoon at a park north of Seattle and then went to Church.

Dinner at Tilth

Last night was the last day of Seattle Restaurant Week and we hit another (sold out!) winner - Tilth!  I went a few years ago with my parents when it first opened and I am so glad I got to go again. And everything is organic too!


 the restaurant is in an old house - so cute and cozy!



Just a few of the many awards this restaurant and head chef Maria Hines has won:
For dinner we had:

Fraga Farms Goat Cheese Tart - caramelized onion, nicoise olive, white anchovy
Lamb Meatballs - pine nut, capellinni, rosemary jus
Carnaroli Risotto - english pea, basil, parmesan
Theo Chocolate Pudding - toffee shaved chocolate, chantilly


Can't wait for Seattle Restaurant Week next year!
