day 1 in the emerald city

we arrived in seattle on monday afternoon to a slight chill in the air and a little drizzle...
perfect seattle weather in my opinion.

first stop?
the patagonia store of course:)

Photobucket

after warming up in the store, we took off for pike place market...
only after seeing this sign.
i thought it was appropriate for the first leg of our trip.

Photobucket

(it was quite windy.)

Photobucket

we finally made it.
i was running through the intro video from the real world seattle as we walked to the market.

Photobucket

first stop?
the first starbucks store...of course!
nick was in heaven.
i love that he's not too cool to be obsessed with starbucks.

Photobucket

then we just had to see the famous fish...

Photobucket

admire the beautiful flowers...

Photobucket

and make a stop here.

Photobucket

their mac and cheese will CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
not even lying.
they make their own cheese right there.
and you can watch.
it's incredible.

Photobucket

then it was off to the aquarium.

Photobucket

where we became one with the fishies...
(literally)

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

in my opinion...the best part of visiting an aquarium is making up voices for the fish.
especially this guy:)

Photobucket

right as we were leaving our fish friends,
the sun came out!

we stopped here to map out our evening and grab a drink.

Photobucket

stella is oh so delicious.

Photobucket

after some guidance and dinner recommendations from our waitress,
we made our way to the gum wall.
quite impressive and a little gross at the same time.

Photobucket

we ended our evening at elliott's on the pier.
our favorite part of the night?
the bib for the crab.
hand's down.
we looked like little kids.
it was great.

Photobucket

seattle, i really like you.

one more day's worth of adventures coming up.
