I love looking at the photos that lead up to a good picture. The photos where someone's eyes (usually mine) are closed, the ones where a dog is licking or jumping, or the ones where we look just a little goofy. They make that one good photo all the more special.
Alright. Let's get real. This week had some rough spots. It started with a rotten head and chest cold (that is showing tremendous staying power) and ended with this:
Yep. Someone broke into my car while I was at work. As far as I know, they didn't steal anything. But it's so annoying. And a little unnerving. Fortunately, no one was hurt and the window will get replaced today. But goodness gracious...what was the point?
But, let us never forget...it's Friday! And like I've said before...there will always be things to be happy about. Here's what's making me smile this week:
1. I'm getting better at grilling chicken!
2. A husband made a video after his wife told him a joke about tortilla chips while she was a bit tipsy. I just can't get enough of it. Watch itHERE...it will make you giggle.
While we were in Seattle a few weeks ago we met up with some dear friends for dinner. While we don't get to see these friends as often as we would like, it's like old times when we get the chance to reconnect.
Cowboy had been hearing good things about a new restaurant in the Ballard area called Staple & Fancy.We decided to check it out by sampling the chef's menu which consisted of a four course meal, with all food selected by the chef.
Boy Howdy. I've never seen (or eaten) so much delicious food. My belly was full after the first course. But I powered through...all four courses. Yowza.
I took a picture every time a new plate of food was brought out just so we could remember all of that deliciousness. And so I could share it with you. Ready? Here we go.
One of our dearest and closest friends recently moved away. He's like a brother to both of us so it's strange not having him nearby anymore.
Since we love him, and we love food, we couldn't let him leave town without one final meal together. Chris knows how much we love waffles (especially of the cornbread variety), so he was convinced we would love a southern special...fried chicken & waffles. He was right.
He brought the chicken. We made the waffles. It was magical.
+ We walked in the Junior Lilac Parade to support the pediatric clinic that I work at. I've never been a huge fan of parades and it was blazing hot...but I think the kids had a blast (and I'll admit...we had fun too).
+ I went to a dear friend's baby shower. I should have taken pictures while I was there because I felt like I had walked into the best pinterest page ever. Oh and I won this fabulous gift basket!
+ We enjoyed some of our favorites off of the bbq.
+ Cowboy built us a fire pit! I can't wait for all of the smores we're gonna have this summer.
