1. Um… this breakfast? Was insane. A truffled omelet with these fried potatoes, and when I say fried, I mean they HAD to be deep fried. So crusty on the outside and super fluffy on the inside. I just… can’t. Booze made it even better.

2. If you’re looking for some new blogs to follow, I highly suggest reading Heather’s and Jackie’s. I have a super weirdo, creepy obsession with them. Hey… at least I’m honest.

3. I developed the worst sinus infection and like, quadruple ear infection (my diagnosis, obviously) to the point where I can’t HEAR A DARN THING. I think I’m dying. And I am not dramatic at all. But the best part about this is since coming home, I’ve slept like a freaking baby because I can’t hear any snoring. Life is good.

4. I’m also pretty sure my husband is okay with this because I’m not talking much. He even made me mac and cheese from a box last night. True love?

5. Tell you more later, but I am seriously obsessed with Seattle. Like, I want to move there? Now? I know.

6. Oh but wait, I do want to tell you how we ordered 4 waters from room service on Friday night and they cost us FIFTY DOLLARS. It was super late, the shops/bars in the hotel were closed, I don’t think we could find a vending machine and if we didn’t have water immediately, our lives were going to end… so we ordered 4 waters from room service. In my next life, I think I want to run room service catering so I can be a millionaire.

7. If you’ve ever doubted my ability to talk nonstop for hours, you should stop. Because Bev happened to be on my connecting flight to Seattle, and after 2.5 solid hours of talking nonstop, we got told to shut the heck up by fellow passengers. I hate my annoying self. Sorry world.

8. And even though I can’t hear, smell or taste a thing, I have been craving this vanilla lemonade for days. Also totally flipping my lid over these cheesecake cones. They make me want to do nothing for the rest of my life except eat them. And I just might.

9. I didn’t get a picture of it (or, well… barely anything), but I drank a white chocolate bacon martini on Saturday. WHAT.

10. Let’s start the pity party now… since Girls is ending next week. Maybe next season Hannah won’t love getting naked so often? You’re the wound!!

11. Since my husband and I sort of like each other now (it only took 3.5 years. maybe I’ll tell you about this someday.), he had a little surprise waiting for me when I got home. I don’t even remember if I thanked him because I was still reeling from not being able to find my car in the airport parking lot. Worst.wife.ever.

12. I’m praying my life will be more fun starting tomorrow when I’m not a complete lump on the couch only ingesting popsicles. Oh… and brandy? I might have had a sip.

13. I vow to use less exclamation points in my life. Starting tomorrow.

    I am absolutely In LOVE with the beautiful City of Seattle and it’s surroundings. My husband and I visit annually and would move from Texas in a heartbeat if we didn’t have such strong ties here. Maybe, just maybe that’s where I’ll move when I retire or win the Lottery!! It’s sooo expensive to live there. Anywho….just wanted to share in the obsession with the lovely city.

    If you spend more than a couple weeks in the Pacific Northwest, you will NOT want to live here for any amount of time. Rain and cold and crap like that all summer long.
    Did you go to the doctor? I get blocked ears all the time when I’m sick and there’s a way they can (eww) irrigate them. They always give me Sudafed because apparently that drains them??

      I have heard that and I do think the gloominess wouldn’t be good for me. Still loved it though! And yes, I did go to the doctor… the tubes (some long word) from my inner ear to my throat are clamped and infected bigtime, so they gave me antibiotics. Fun!

    I love Seattle so much. It is my third favorite city, and I am lucky to be a 3 hour drive from it. well, in my car with my leadfoot, 2.15 hours. oops.

    I have done that with hotel water too many times. robbery.

    Glad to hear you liked Seattle! I wanna move there too…maybe in a few years after im working at one of those fancy law firms lol. Since you have a few fans that live in or near Seattle you should try to do a meet up if your ever here again? and defiantly spill the beans on where the white chocolate bacon martini is.

    I too, have a love for Seattle. I only live 2 hours away but it feels so far. I don’t get there nearly enough. Every time I go, the list of must visit places doubles. So someday, I’ll have no choice but to live there. And I’ll be making cheesecake cones as soon as I possibly can, thank you for sharing! Sort of.

    I’m so glad you love Seattle! It’s always going to be my home, I was born and raised there but have been stuck in horrible Utah for ten years now. If you wanted water that badly you could have had it straight from the tap, up there the water isn’t treated because it comes straight from (mostly) underground rivers and it tastes amaaaazing. But, it could be different in downtown from what I remember (I lived in a small town about 40 minutes east).

    Reply

    • Jessica — June 12th, 2012 @ 8:32 pm

      We actually did drink from the tap and I agree, it was fine! They only had small glasses though and we all wanted a big bottle at once! Wrong move.

Then, I would warm up to you (because you are freakin’ hilarious) and we would have a dance party and watch reality TV. If you ever move to the Rocky Mountain region we should be friends. That’s all!

    So I’m not at all surprised you’re obsessed with a blog about cooking with beer. Is it creepy that I want it to seem like I know you that well, even though we’ve never met and I just read your blog? I’m not a creeper. I promise. I am, however, convinced that if I keep reading your blog and making your recipes, I will be engaged by the end of the year. So really, I’m more obsessed with the diamond I’m imagining than I am with your blog. There. See? I’m not a creeper :)
