Escaping the heat was a priority for sure, but most importantly, we got to visit my family! I'm originally from the Seattle area, and it's always a treat to go home.
Amy), and my "flat" sandals.
I only carry exactly what I need on the plane, and check the rest. Baggage claims are usually pretty quick (unless it's around the holidays) and carrying extra bulk through airports is no way to start a vacation. I keep makeup simple (obviously, haha!).
My bag is new, yes. I love it! I found it just a day before we left and couldn't wait to make use of it. It's brand new in stores now, but I scored a lucky deal at TJMaxx. I never shop there anymore, but Bryan needed some sunglasses. ;)
In my bag, I only pack the essentials...wallet, phone, lip gloss, gum, a pen, and any flight/travel information I need. Bryan carries a backpack with books, magazines, and our iPad.
Beechers straight away. Cheese, nom nom. I love cheese. We don't eat much of it for various reasons, but it's such a treat from time to time. I had the famous Mac 'n Cheese, and they had sandwiches and soup. Definitely a must if you head to Seattle!
After our coffee stop, we hopped on the ferry to meet my other sister and brother in law on the Bremerton side of the Peninsula. If you haven't been to that area, it can be very confusing because of how the water snakes through land. Other than a teeny, tiny strip of land, I basically grew up on an island.
After relaxing for a few hours, we went to sleep fully anticipating what the rest of the week would hold.
