Good times x1000

What a weekend..! They just get more and more hard to beat, it seems. Stunning weather, scrumptious food, lovely friends, priceless conversations, and awesome activities. A few snapshots:

Marymoor Park, Saturday morning.

Columbia Center Sky View Obeservatory, Sunday afternoon.

You who have been to the fabulous Tavern Law with me, do you remember the mysterious door and phone? I've been upstairs now, at Needle and Thread! My verdict: nothing but fantastic. Those cocktails, my friends, those cocktails... Round one and round two.

Before the night was over I had, somewhat unexpectedly, had my first encounter with the Green Fairy. I sure didn't see that coming when I got out of bed that morning... Deliciously decadent, all of it!

Things are crazy in Seattle these days; google “12th man” and you'll understand what we're talking about. So much fun! The whole city is practically bursting in blue and green.

Yesterday, our Seahawks took on San Francisco 49ers in a nerve-wracking playoff game that seemed to last forever. After lots of cursing, sweating, shaking of heads, biting of nails, giving up and coming back, the boys made a crucial interception in the end zone on the 49ers' final possession, therby securing the National Football Conference championship and earning their place in the last game of the NFL season against the American Football Conference champion Denver Broncos. 

...that's right: SUPER BOWL, BABY! Yeah! SPORTS!

I was watching the game with a big group of friends - all rooting for Seahawks except for one poor 49ers fan (who wasn't too disappointed by their defeat, to be honest).

Fans at Fred Hutch took a sweet 12th man photo before the previous playoff game against New Orleans Saints. Love the spirit!

On February 2nd we'll be cheering, chanting, and screaming once more... GO HAWKS! SPORTS!

*It's the 48th Super Bowl

I'm glad to see that my favorite Thai restaurant makes good choices when it comes to eggs; I certainly prefer edible over the cheaper alternatives.

If someone can explain this to me, I'm all ears. And eggs. But mostly ears. Also: incredible!

Winter playtime

Stevens Pass, January 4. Sunshine, mountains, friends, and snow. Joy! And bruises. And more joy!

Yay! Silly pose! (Why, oh why can't I ever just look normal...?)
