We're back from our few days of shopping, eating, shopping, eating, shopping and eating in Seattle. We had such a good time! Of course it rained most of the time we were there and everywhere we went we were bundled up and flat-haired.
Here we are at Pike Place seeking cover:
And here we are at a candy shop, for a little excitement, I stood on the other side:
And here we are hugging on the balcony of our Nana's apartment because we are both so happy we found jeans that fit. [more on the jeans tomorrow]
and here are me and Emily hugging because she is still young enough to let her aunt hug her (and she won't be almost my height for much longer):
And here is the conclusion: we look exactly the same in every photo taken of us whether it is candid or not. We've come to the realization that this is just how we look. So....now you'll just have to wait until the book comes out to see the author photo we ended up with. We love it.
Before we left for Seattle, Karen and I kept telling Emily that we'd have delicious chocolate croissants there. We've always had excellent pastries there. Because we are us, every chocolate croissant we had there ended up being, well, LAME!
They call this a CHOCOLATE croissant! Where's the chocolate? One little blob of chocolate at the bottom of a thick bun is not a chocolate croissant! Sheesh. And, to make matters worse, Fran seems to have changed the recipe of her Coconut Gold Bars and now they aren't that good. What is going on in Seattle that is making all things chocolate go weird? Anyway, even though the so-called chocolate croissants at The Essential Baking Company on Madison in Seattle aren't very chocolaty, their sandwiches are delish! We'd always wanted to go there so are happy we got a chance to try it.
Up next: new red shoes + a good yellow house with paranoid owners
