Exploring Seattle Picture Overload

Seattle | Chic to Chic Blog | www.chictochicblog.wordpress.com

Well hello there, Stranger! The last couple of weeks have been a complete whirlwind. I’m just now catching up on sleep and getting used to my new school schedule. I thought I’d share our quick trip over to Seattle before Matt’s 10 year High School Reunion. We had so much fun exploring Seattle with his wonderful parents. The view above is from our incredible hotel room. I hadn’t been to Seattle since I was six years old and it was like I’d never been. Seeing the Space Needle outside our window and when we laid in bed at night was the coolest thing ever! We enjoyed shopping in the flagship Nordstrom, checking out the beautifully decorated Anthropologie (all three stories) and even made a trip to the Seattle Aquarium. Our last few hours were spent eating amazing crab on the dock and enjoying the weirdly sunny, cloudless sky. It was a perfect little adventure. Enjoy the picture overload!Seattle | Chic to Chic Blog | www.chictochicblog.wordpress.com

The Fourth Picture Overload.

The days leading up to the Fourth of July and the weekend following were filled with family time and exploring our two favorite mountain towns. We spent a day in Vail and half a week in Breckenridge. These two little towns are my favorite. They are covered in character, unique shops and delicious places to eat. Our favorite places to grab a bite are in Vail – Up the Creek and in Breckenridge the family favorite is Downstairs at Eric’s. We always have so much fun every year celebrating the fourth in the mountains. I can’t wait to continue the tradition with our future babes. I sprinkled a few other pictures from before and after the mountains. Enjoy the picture overload!

East Coast Picture Overload.

This year we decided to do a Road Trip. We started with Georgia where I was in my sweet friend’s wedding (more on that later) and then ended it spending time in New York City with my Aunt & Uncle. Along the way we stopped in Hilton Head, South Carolina, Lexington, Virginia, Cherry Hill, NJ and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was a crazy, wild trip and I’m so glad we did it. So many memories were created that I’ll never forget. Some highlights were of course Kylie & Michael’s Wedding, using AIRBNB and finding unique and beautiful places to stay while meeting wonderful people, seeing all of our family along the coast, the Art Museum and seeing Wicked on Broadway. You’ll see bits of these highlights in the photos. So, without further adieu, it’s time for the picture overload.

I’m Dreaming.

It’s happening. It’s snowing again. And I’m dreaming of a day when there’s no more snow and sunlight streams through my windows. I’m also dreaming of A Change of House. If you’re a follower on MY PINTEREST PAGE you know what’s been on my mind lately. My A Change of House board has gotten lots of attention. I’m dreaming of light colors, sunlight and little details that make the place. Feminine. Flirty. Whites. Neutrals. Cozy. Darling. I think I’ll share with you.

Europe – Any Advice?

In just nine short months, my lovely friend, Alex and I will be on a plane headed to Italy. We’ll spend most of the trip traveling around Italy and spend the rest of our time in Greece. Neither of us have ever been to Europe and we’re saving our pennies like two college gals to get there. I couldn’t wait to share the news with my nearest and dearest. We are so extremely excited. Now, we just have to decide what to wear!?

These are my ideas so far. What do you think?

This Dress.

The Oxford.

The Hair Accessories.

The Scarf.

Have you ever been to Europe or taken a trip where you had to pack light, dress cute and feel comfortable while touring a city? Any advice on the packing light part? That seems to be my main problem. Any favorite outfits, comfortable shoes or accessories you loved having with you? We’d both love the advice! Can’t wait to hear from you!

Have a great rest of your week, friends!

Get back to work!

Back to reality, but wow, what a weekend. It was much needed and very relaxing. I had high hopes to take tons of photos of the beautiful Vail mountains. However, I was so relaxed, I left the house several times without even bringing my phone. I know, crazy! So, I don’t have very many photos to share, but here are a couple that I did take.

We enjoyed Friday night to Monday morning in our lovely condo and enjoyed the amazing weather Vail gave us. We laid out in the sun, swam in the pool, hiked a trail and my favorite, shopped in Vail Village. They had a great thing going in downtown Vail called Gourmet on Gore. You guessed it, we had incredible gourmet food from restaurants all over the area. We had everything from Asian BBQ sandwiches to Cheesy Grits (my favorite). I even tried a Green Tea Cupcake. It was super sweet, but of course super delicious!! They had a Rubber Ducky Race down Vail Creek. The best part was watching all of the kids cheering on their duck. Hundreds of ducks floated down the river before our very eyes. It was great!

We had such a wonderful time and can’t wait for the next mini trip up. Now, it’s back to work. This week brings lots of deadlines and Friday, my office is putting on an Oktoberfest party! Pictures to come on that one! It’s going to be a blast! I even have a REAL German Dirndl, thanks to my incredible Mother -in-law.

I’ll also share some photos as I start to set up my office space. I’m having so much fun already.

So, tell me- how was your Labor Day Weekend!? Did you have fun with family or enjoy the weekend just relaxing like us?! I hope is was exactly what you needed.

Happy Monday, Friends!

End of Vacation

Every vacation must end. Stuffed with pretzels, Rita’s water ice and Chick’s cheese steak sandwiches- we fly out tonight! I will miss my Aunt Meryl and Uncle Gerry, Pop and my Dad. Until we see them again.

What a fun trip. Everyday was filled to the max. We shopped, ate and spent quality time together. What a wonderful time.
