Taphouse and Targets

When I first started blogging, I didn’t intend on every other entry to be about food. It seems like I check out a new restaurant almost twice a week, which doesn’t seem like much, but it’s definitely starting to take a toll on my wallet… and my waistline. haha!

sweet selection on tap

On our latest trip, my friends and I checked out a popular Taphouse on the east side. Look at that selection of beers on tap! Sadly, I couldn’t enjoy a cold beverage from the tap with my lunch because of the activity planned for later in the afternoon. Drinks aside, the food was delicious!

I decided on garlic chicken penne smothered in cheese, paired with a tortilla soup. I can’t say that this was the best penne I’ve ever had (the cheese was a little too strong for my liking), but the tortilla soup was soooo good. It was a clear broth with¬†avocado, sour cream, and a handful of tortilla chips. I don’t think I’ve ever had anything quite like it.

So the reason I couldn’t enjoy a drink with my lunch is because we ended up at a shooting range. ¬†I can’t say I was super excited to shoot pistols, but because we don’t have anything like this in Canada, I was intrigued.

We started off with a 22mm pistol and shot a few rounds. After we got bored of that, we moved on to a 9mm baretta. I had no idea that the recoil from one size to the next could be so drastic! I knew that it would feel different, but not that different. Still a fun experience, nonetheless.

I’m not sure if you can tell in the photos, but I’m wearing a dress. Yes, I wore a dress to a shooting range. Sigh. haha It was almost as ridiculous as the time I wore flats, a dress shirt and jogging pants to a mini-hike. I need to plan my outfits a little better… : P

Crazy about Lace

This past weekend was filled with sunny skies (a rare sight for us west coasters). You have no idea how excited I was for the sun to be out because warm weather = DRESS WEATHER! Recently, I’ve been on a bit of a floral kick. Every shirt or dress I gravitate towards either has floral print on it or is made of floral lace. What is up with that?

lounging in a dress

I ended up spending the most of my day running errands and got the chance to unwind at a ‘girls afternoon/night in’ event. A bunch of us met up for some wine & cheese and pedicures. Nothing like enjoying a relaxing night with a bunch of girls and delicious drinks. Did I mention we also played a lot of Rock Band?

painted feet!

(If you’re curious, I got my nails painted in this obnoxious coral pink color. I usually don’t paint my toes but I couldn’t pass up a free pedicure. I figured I needed to get in the spirit of summer shoes and went for the boldest color available!)

p.s. I wasn’t lying when I said that i like monochromatic outfits!

Seeing Green

The one thing I love about being in Seattle is the lush greenery on the highways. There’s never a dull moment while on the road… nor is there a dull moment in a green field. The inner 5 year old in me seems to appear every time I set foot in a park or field. I can’t help but want to jump around in the grass.

On this particular day, it had rained earlier and I wasn’t sure if running around in the field would be a good idea. I decided to check how muddy it was:

After I realized that there were no swampy pockets, I… lost all self control for containing my inner 5 year old. hahaha

jump to it!

Outfit details: Hollister (t-shirt & jeans), Dynamite trench

Thankfully, I wasn’t playing in the fields alone. My friends and I hung out at the park until sunset. What a nice way to enjoy nature. : )
