Weekend Update

We had a wonderful weekend. Friday night was spent enjoying a delicious dinner and hanging out at my parents house celebrating Megs 26th birthday. I swear this girl doesn't age one bit and is still as gorgeous and perfect today as she's ever been.

Saturday morning we had to drop my car off at the shop and decided to head up to Seattle in Steve's Suburban, which turned out to be such a bumpy ride that I thought at one point along I-5 that the bumps might send me into labor. First stop was to check out the 2nd Saturdayz Flea Market at Magnuson Park. If you're into antiques, homemade items, etc, I'm highly recommend checking this event out. We left with a couple of great finds for the nursery.

Next stop was Second Wave in Fremont, or as Steve likes to refer to it as "his mistress." I had never been to Second Wave before and knew the instant we walked into the freezing cold warehouse why he loved it so much - nothing but used boating/marine devices from floor to ceiling. I lasted about 10 minutes before convincing him that we needed nothing. This is the store where he purchased the boat cleats for the nursery closet. Since we were so close we had to stop next at the Armchair Sailor on Westlake to see if there was anything we possibly needed for the nursery. I swear Steve knows the hours and location of every single boating supply store on the west coast. Since we were just down the street from the new LunchBox Laboratory restaurant in South Lake Union Steve decided it was a must since he's been telling me about their burgers for the past 4 years and I had never had the pleasure of enjoying one.

His favorite has always been the Dork Burger (half pork, half duck), but I opted for a Kobe beef burger. I have to say that it was pretty much one of the best burgers I've ever had - they're huge so you can save some for later. They even serve tater tots and malts! We're suckers for anyplace that serves malts. If you haven't been yet, give it a try - you'll thank me later!

After all of this running around, it was time for mama to get a massage. About 6 months ago I bought a massage off of Groupon for Lemon Drop Skin Care & Massage in Kent. I had never heard of it, but read great reviews and couldn't pass on a one-hour massage for $30. Best massage I've ever had - I'll definitely be going back.

Saturday night and all day Sunday were spent doing some major spring cleaning and preparing for our house guests this coming weekend - The Reynolds! Steve also built a book shelf and a shelf out of driftwood for the nursery that I'll post later this week. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I'm hoping this week flys by because I can hardly wait for my girlfriends baby shower this coming Saturday (and Marge Madness) and for all of my girls that are flying in to town!!

Side note: I'm currently loving the band Foster the People and looking forward to their show at the High Dive in a couple of weeks. If you haven't heard of them, check them out.

That hamburger place looks amazing! If I went there, I'd gain 7 pounds!
