For some reason the idea of having a “Bucket List” has come up in various conversations throughout the past couple of weeks and it got me to thinking…why have I never compiled an actual Bucket List? I mean we all have some sort of mental checklist of things that we want to do before we die. So why not actually put mine down in writing?! … Continue reading My Personal Bucket List
I love going on little day trips. There is nothing better than escaping the city…even for just a few hours! Lucky for me, I live in Seattle. Which means I only have to travel a few hours in any direction and I will find myself near the ocean, mountains, countryside, or even Canada! This past weekend I went with some friends to Bainbridge Island…which is … Continue reading Day Trip!
I recently came across the below quote and I feel like this sums up some things I have been trying to tell a few friends lately. So I thought I would share… “Go home, mow the lawn, wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study your lessons, and after you’ve finished, read a book. Your town does … Continue reading Wishbone
Well with the holidays completely behind us…I can officially say that I am experiencing the post holiday blues. Going back to work and working a full work week is definitely taking some getting use to. Especially when I have only worked a handful of days over the past couple of months!!! Anyways, there are still a few things that make me “holiday happy” and one of … Continue reading Post Holiday Blues
I recently had the chance to view many of the exhibits at the Seattle Experience Music Project Museum while on a work outing. Check out the cool jacket I spotted in the Hear My Train A’Comin: Hendrix Hits London exhibit! (Sorry that the picture is so dark and yellow, no flash allowed.) You know I love me a good map!!! This particular jacket was worn by … Continue reading Mitch Mitchell Map Jacket
Well Christmas day has come and gone…and to be honest, it wasn’t really what I had initially envisioned or planned on. I mean it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. Christmas is just really different when both of my siblings are out of the state and I am the only “child” at home with my parents. My Dad made some traditional Filipino food for Christmas … Continue reading Merry Christmas!
“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…” I was really hoping that it would have snowed at my parents house by now!! I mean nothing quite says the holidays quite like a white Christmas! Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a snowflake in sight and it was sunny most of the afternoon. I am hoping that Santa brings some snow with him when he comes tonight!!! (My Mom … Continue reading Dreaming of a White Christmas
I thought I would share a quick photo I took on my iPhone on my most recent trip down to Portland. I love the view out of my train window whenever I leave the Portland…all of the empty lots and windy overpasses always look so cool. Can’t wait to head back down there for the holidays! Cheers! -Michelle Continue reading To Portland and Back Again
Here is a little blog shout out to my most bestest friend in the whole entire world…Kristin The Krazy!! Like I had mentioned in a prior post, she currently lives in Australia…which according to Google Maps is just 13,374 mile jaunt from my doorstep to hers! So close, right?! Well recently, I came across the below picture and I immediately thought of Kristin!! I swear … Continue reading Bestest Friend!!!
I have not decorated a Christmas Tree in years! My roommate and I have two very sad excuses for trees….Mini Tree and Goldie Tree! And while we love these little trees for various reason that I can’t even get into right now as it would take me days to blog about…they aren’t the same thing as having a real tree. As a child I remember … Continue reading A Pink Christmas!!!
