{travel} shiehfam: exploring seattle

October 15, 2016

For our last day and a half in Seattle, we wanted to squeeze in a few more must do’s (mostly places I haven’t been to, but Steph has). We woke up and walked next door to Top Pot Doughnuts to get some coffee and donuts for breakfast.

2016-08-13 08.57.46The first time I visited Seattle, Tina and I brought these donuts home to share with friends. I feel like it’s gotten even more popular because there was always a line! (Those Seattle Seahawk themed donuts though… boo!)

My mom’s been talking about visiting Seattle for a while, so decided to visit the city the weekend before my brothers had to go back to school.

{event} slake the thirst in seattle: space needle, gum wall, and saying goodbye

August 24, 2015

It was our last day in Seattle, and we wanted to make the most of it! Luckily for us, it was bright and sunny. It was actually the warmest day that we were there (around 80 degrees), but we couldn’t dress the part because we were flying back to chilly San Francisco later in the day.

2015-08-16 10.18.46We had planned to head back to Pike Place Market to pick up a few things to bring home to the bay. But first, we took the bus to see the Space Needle.
