Girls Weekend in Seattle

Okay, the recap you probably haven't been waiting for!

This weekend I escaped snowlandia and made it up for some girl time with my lady Amanda. Amanda and I met when I moved to a new high school my sophomore year and we became instant friends. Both talented, intelligent, intrinsically motivated young women looking to make a difference. We teamed up with two other bright women and formed a group that we named "TMNT" (Yes, that's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). 

These girls gave me my first taste of blogging when we used to use Livejournal private posts to communicate and gossip about all the dirty details of adolescence. Too bad I don't remember my password to retrieve the 55 private entries AND great thing that those posts never existed on the public internet. I was a sassy teenager without much of a filter.

But back to girl's weekend. If anyone is a great host it's my girl. She picked me up at the bus station, had a bottle of wine ready and waiting the second we stepped into her door and she even let me sleep in her bed with her rather than making me stay on her couch. We wined, chatted, wined, Sex and the City Marathon, explored, shopped, wined, whiskeyed and did our best to stay warm while Seattle got it's own snow flurries. 

Enjoy some photos from the weekend!

:: Nailed this nice stranger in the eyeball 30 feet away in a bar snowball fight
:: All the selfie's (get off my nose, awkward hair)

I can't wait to visit her again in the spring. Thanks again for a great time!

I am also a big fan of whisky and just bought myself a bottle this weekend. So good with some ginger ale- good choice. I am happy you made it safely and 'easily' up to Seattle!
