what i did in seattle...
13 May 2013


Last Thursday, I flew to Seattle to host a Petites event at Anthropologie. While I was there less than 24 hours, the one thing I had to make room for was a trip to Pike Place Market. I had never been to Seattle, but knew that I'd love it.




No trip to the market would be complete without stopping by the gum wall. It's so pretty—until you think about how much saliva is on that wall. But you've got to admire those who spelled their name in gum. Um, nice penmanship (or should I say "gum-manship", Kristina!).

Next, I ate and ate and ate...



I spent my two free hours walking and talking and catching up with my friend Jenny, who I've known since 2005 but have never met in person. Our first stop was Beecher's for their mariachi mac 'n' cheese...spicy, tangy, savory, and oh-so-good!


Next, we stopped at the Daily Dozen for an assortment of freshly fried mini-doughnuts. There's really nothing better than a fresh doughnut. They were gone within minutes.


Then we stopped ay Three Girls Bakery for some giant cookies...


...and finally Piroshky Piroshky for some Russian baked goodies.




After consuming a billion carbs within an hour, we burned them off with a little shopping at Watson Kennedy, Pirkko, and Bella Umbrella. Then I said goodbye to my sweet friend and headed off to get ready for the Anthro party!






That night, I hosted the Petites event at the Fifth Avenue Anthropologie store in Seattle—the only Anthropologie in the country to sell petite sizes in the actual store (and not just online)! It was an awesome night meeting so many Seattle readers. You guys were so fantastic and so welcoming! And, the florals and treats were the perfect topper to an already great evening.


After a post-party dinner with the girls from Rivet & Sway, I headed back to my hotel room exhausted and ready for bed. But of course I had to check out this crazy-awesome TV embedded into the bathroom mirror one last time! Although it was a quick trip, I had a blast in Seattle. I came home and told Bob that I want to go back with him and Ruby for a long weekend this summer so we can really explore (and eat more).
