Romping around Seattle with the Mitchell's

What a great week we've had! Thoroughly enjoying the time with the fam. Sadly said goodbye to the bro this morning, well last night rather as he left at 4 am to catch his flight! yikes! Thanks to my dad I was able to sleep in, he drove him to the airport. I had a tad too much fun yesterday in Woodinville (wineries and breweries, no further comment!) to be waking up that early! This morning I was trying to think of the next time I'll see him, a trip back to England isn't in the plans any time soon- tear. Hopefully it will be in July when Eddie & I go home for a week, I am going to try to plan it so it's when he is vacationing home too.
So until then brudder- hope you enjoy New Years in New York with your friends!

I left my camera at my friends on Christmas Eve and have yet to retrieve it, fail! Luckily my mom has hers so we could capture some of our fun!

We went to the Boeing Flight Museum, which was much better than I thought it was going to be! Got to step through a retired Air Force One!

Pikes Place, a tourist staple!

There is a theater right near my apt that I've been dying to catch a play at so I took advantage of that this week. We saw Sherlock Holmes and The Case of the Christmas Carol at Taproot Theater- it was really good! I highly recommend this theater- so intimate!

Wine tasting at Columbia Winery in Woodinville, one of Eddie & I's favorite places. If we planned our wedding out here, it would soo be at one of the lovely wineries in Woodinville! I swoon over Columbia's bridal book that's on showcase.

After the winery we headed to Redhook Brewery. They have one of the best brewery tours I've ever been on! Maybe its because they fill up those little taster cups so many dang times, and the tour is only one dollar! We even caught happy hour after where pints are only $1.25. I do cherish the happy hour's out here, Boston banned happy hours years and years ago before I was even legal, boooo!

The tour guides are usually quite cute and hilarious too I might add!

And of course lots of playing  w/ the pup! He's going to be so mad at me when I have to return to work!

 Still have 2 more days with my parents! Yippeee!!


  1. Sounds so fun! I've always wanted to visit Seattle! :) Cute pup! :)
