Friday Favorites: Washington State Edition

So I’ve been in Seattle for almost 2 weeks now. It’s been super busy and super fun already. Between unpacking, meeting up with new and old friends, going hiking, and runs to Target, Bed Bath and Beyond and IKEA, it’s been pretty nonstop. I thought it’d be fun to do a top 5 favorite things that I’ve been up to in Seattle.

THE NEW YOU

Yesterday I mentioned the Twin Falls Hike we did in North Bend. The weather was so crisp and sunny and it was a perfect fall day and hike.

THE NEW YOU(1)

We met up with our friend Kate and went for a walk in Lincoln Park, which was so pretty. I had heard about the park but this was Dave and I’s first time there. I definitely want to go back and go for walks and runs there and take our visitors.

This week Dave and I got our library cards (because I’m a super nerd and it was a top priority of mine hah) and you’re able to get books from all different libraries around the city. We decided to check out the central library that is downtown. It is an architectural marvel and understandably so.

Ever since we went to North Carolina I’ve been on a hunt to find the best biscuits. Sadly North Carolina didn’t deliver (I must have missed all the good places, we were only there for a few days. I still need to blog about that trip!) but I found the best biscuits in Ballard. The place is called Morsel. I found them on Yelp and we’ve been there twice already. πŸ™‚

I got the buttermilk biscuit with raspberry jam the first time and strawberry jam the next time. They were bothΒ delicious and I can’t wait to go back! Haha. Dave got a sandwich with spinach and an egg and some other stuff, it’s called the spanish fly.

Our friend Hayes introduced us to the TNT Taqueria in Wallingford. They have theΒ best breakfast burritos. And Gretchen (our other friend) said the tacos were great too. We were tempted to go back the next day, they’re that good.

And fun fact, across the street they have a sports bar called the Iron Bull, which is a Chicago bar! Dave, Gretchen and I went there last Sunday to watch the Bears game with our jerseys on and it was so fun to be in Seattle surrounded by a bunch of Bears fans with their Culter, Peyton, and Dikta jerseys on. As Gretchen says, “It’s a nice piece of home.”

    1. I know seriously! I took a little hiatus from blogging world when things got busy with traveling and moving. I’m just trying to play a little catch up now! You’re such a sweet positive girl. Thanks for the nice comments Molly! It’s been fun getting settled here. I’ve been hanging out with your bookworm buddy Katie! It’s been so great πŸ™‚

    That library is a block away from my office πŸ™‚ we can be book nerds and go there together. Those biscuits look so yummy.

  3. Seattle looks beautiful. I’ve really only seen it through movies or TV shows but actual pictures like this show just how gorgeous it is.

    I’m hoping the adventures mean that unpacking is going well. I think one of the best things about a new city are finding new places. the food look delicious too.
