Tom Otterness


I stumbled upon a sculpture done by Tom Otterness while walking around Seattle.

He's the one who did all those little people statuettes in the NYC subway station I blogged about last year.

I wish I could commission him to make little people statuettes in ever corner of my apartment.

Martha Stewart Living Magazine


A few months ago Jeff bought me a subscription to Martha Stewart Living Magazine on my iPad.

One of my favorite things to do in the morning is drink coffee and flip...er...slide(?) thru it.

My favorite articles are about woman who quit their "real" jobs to pursue their "dream" jobs.

Their dream jobs are usually one of the following:

1.) Owning a unique flower shop

2.) Churning butter and only selling it to local restaurants

3.) Embroidering pillows

4.) Using their Grandmother's old jam recipes to start a preserves company out of their garage and once again only selling to local restaurants

5.) Starting a bee hive 

I don't know how these woman give up multimillion dollar city jobs to do what they love which seems so obscure...yet still end up making millions of dollars doing it.


This is one of my favorite pictures from one of the magazine articles about dairy.

I think it's so beautiful!

Celebrity Apprentice


I love Celebrity Apprentice and hope Penn Jillette and Trace Adkins ice cream flavors are still around when I get home!

Molly Moon's Ice Cream

Voted as one of the top 10 ice cream shops in the world, according to USA Today,  Molly Moon's in Seattle does not disappoint. 


The workers are so kind and give out endless samples so you can be confident with your final choice.

I sampled balsamic strawberry and birthday neapolitan before deciding on scout mint.

They give very generous scoops and I recommend getting a waffle cone.

Jeff, got the salted caramel and I must admit I was a little jealous I did't get a scoop of that as well.


This ice cream really is amazing.




Piroshky Piroshky


Being in Seattle every Sunday has been a real treat on this contract.

One of the first places Jeff and I went to is a Russian bakery called Piroshky Piroshky located in Pike Place Market. 

They have an assortment of fresh made pastries that range from savory to sweet.


My two favorites so far have been the marzipan pastry shown above and the salmon, cream cheese filled pastry shown below.


Make sure you stop by if you are ever in the area.
