Birthday: Seattle Trip Highlights

This weekend was amazing. It felt like a major vacation and We were only an hour from home! It was amazing to feel and look and act like our child-less selves again. 
We stayed at The Inn at El Gaucho in downtown Seattle, which had great vintage charm and was super comfy, plus we had a view of the water {awesome!}

 We walked to Pikes Place Market for breakfast and ate at Local color, A little coffee and pastry shop that displays the art of local artists.

 Then we headed across the street and grabbed some fresh fruit to have around as we explored the city. I loved looking at the coolest broccoli I had ever seen.

Then We started what I thought was the best part of the whole trip. I have obsessively been reading Apartment Therapy for the past month. Getting inspired and dreaming of being in a place that would actually allow me to do some of the projects I dream about. So for my birthday Jones took me to some of the Coolest Vintage modern furniture Stores in Seattle.
First stop 

We were pretty nuts about this squirrel lamp, {haha get it, nuts!}

Here Jones is looking at a book that has stencils of Street art around the world.

Then just down the Street We stopped in at 

This super Green, Super inspiring store had all kinds things that made me go Ooh la la.

Like these neck ties made out of recycled audio cassette tape
 or their bowls made from records

And traffic sign chairs.

 Then Just a little Further down the road...

This is me sitting and pondering how badly I want this couch. $695 on sale, orig. $1200

Or this Glider, Love it! $999

And then of course how could I not go to 

How could I not go here considering I am 6 months pregnant. So many pretties in here. My favorite thing though was a stroller that rocked my socks.
And how is this for a bouncer $200

Later after all that walking we headed for massages and an amazing dinner and El Gaucho.
By the time We were leaving we felt like we had had a pretty perfect weekend.
And to top things off Jones got to see a Delorean, one of his top favorite cars of all time!

 Seattle you were a blast, See you same time next year!!
