Ask me again at the end of the summer...

The Travel-Bug has striked again. Derek and I get an itch to go traveling every few months, whether its a big trip, or a weekend getaway. Maybe its because we rarely have the same day off, and never more than one day. And our schedules are so opposite I work nights, he works evenings. The only way we have a few days off together, is because we've schedule that time off. Well, we haven't done anything since last fall when we went on our roadtrip, but over the next month and a half we're making up for it...

This weekend we're going to Seattle for a few days. We always enjoy going there, and one of the fun things we're doing is going on a self-guided "Food Tour". We had talked about joining an official one, but they had places we wouldn't eat at, such as coffee spots, and wine tasting. So we decided we'd compile our own (with ideas unknowingly supplied by their website). What's not to like about going around Pike's Place Market and sampling great eats? Other than that we're going around and hitting our favorite spots. I'll try to take lots of pictures.

Then the end of June we're headed down to Utah for a Weber Family Reunion over the weekend. This is the first year in who knows how long that all the siblings, and spouses (and kids) will be there. It will be a complete reunion complete with our parents, 10 kids and 8 spouses, 1 girlfriend, and 24.5 grandkids (Shaina's bun in the oven...) It will be totally chaotic but lots of fun.

Then, last of all Derek and I decided to go on another Cruise to celebrate our 4th Anniversary. We're going on the Carnival Cruise line, to the Bahamas and Key West. It's going to be so much fun, I've been wanting to go again since our first one. We're definately going to become those people that have been on like 20 cruises by the time we're in our 50's. I keep imaging how it will feel to be back on a Caribbean beach with Derek, soaking up the sun. As you can see I tried to put up a widget, but it was meant for myspace. Even though its just half a widget i liked it better than the plain clock blogger ones I've seen.

Anyway, its going to be a super busy next couple months, with work, YW, Trips, (and working out to look decent in a bathing suit!) but it's all going to be so much fun!!! Woot, Woot!

Ok, authentic Seattle eats.....Zeke was a contributer to this bachelor party idea. They took this really skinny guy who could eat a mountain of food on the 'Seattle Challenge'. The Seattle part was because every eatery they took this guy to had to be authentic to Seattle, no chains. If he finished his meal then a 'sponsor' like Zeke would pay for the meal, if not, it came out of the pot(money donated by other friends). Whatever was left of the pot at the end of the day was all his to keep. You can e-mail me and ask for the places, but breakfast was a 12 egg omlet. Lunch was a massive burrito(I've had that one, you share it for reals). I can't remember what the dinner was, then dessert was a place similar to a cold stone and there his fiance met up with him and when seeing the pile of cash and her green fiance, she helped him out. I have heard sooo many stories of these bachelor parties. If you need any help choosing the eating joints, just holler, we are full of suggestions:)
