A weekend away...

Last weekend I had the opportunity to go with my Grandma Janaye - AKA "Great" - to Seattle. I had never been there before so I was anxious to see it in real life. Mostly because I'm addicted to Grey's Anatomy and wanted to see the HUGE city! I just have to say that the Fall colors there are AMAZING!! Reds and yellows like you wouldn't believe.
We rented a black Dodge Charger... fun car!! It was soo fast. Good thing I don't own this car :)
This is the key you use to drive this Beast... weird, huh?! It's plastic!
and we stayed at the Marriot in Tacoma where parking was $10 a night or $14 for valet!! Yikes.
We got there Saturday evening and went to a yummy restaurant in Tacoma called Johnny's Dock. This was the view from our seat...
My grandma had to go to Market on Sunday so I tagged along. LADIES this is where the store owners go to pick out their clothing for the upcoming seasons... It was so interesting. I got a sneak peak at what is coming to stores near you for Spring and Summer!!
From there we went downtown Seattle to eat dinner. The valet boys told us about a good place on the pier called the Crab Pot.
The menu was pretty funny...
Dinner is dumped on a huge piece of paper right on your table!! We had King Crab legs with corn on the cob and red potatoes. It was AWESOME!!
Monday morning we woke up, got ready and drove back downtown Seattle for a day full of shopping. We started in Nordstrom's at 10:30am and ate breakfast in their cafe. From there we shopped ALL DAY!! The Nordstrom's there is 5 levels!! Seattle reminds me of a mini New York. Even their Gap was 3 levels!! I could NOT believe how crazy it was on a Monday!! I had to take a picture of the policeman on his horse.

Well... we finally headed home around 6pm that night!! My feet hurt at the end of the day and we were extra hungry!! We ate dinner at Olive Garden and had the BEST dinner I have had from there. If you're a fan of shrimp try their Grilled Shrimp Caprese.It was to die for!!
I have to say that a GPS is a must when you are in a foreign city!! This thing saved us a LOT of time and hassle.

So long Seattle... until next time!

Thanks Grandma for a SUPER fun weekend!! It was sooo much fun to get away for a minute and spend time with you. Love ya.

You are making me miss it there. Crab Pot is my fav! I'm glad you liked it there and I hope it didn't rain on you too much.
