Friday Daydreamin-Seattle Drizzle

Dennis Reed: It rains nine months a year in Seattle.
Annie Reed: I know! –Sleepless in Seattle

Today I’m daydreamin’ of the first trip Match and I ever went on that wasn’t to visit family. It was February of 2009, and for Match’s birthday, his parents had given us plane tickets to Seattle! For some crazy reason, we decided to go in February, even though we could have waited, forgetting that the weather would be terrible. It was incredibly cold and drizzled every day. What I wouldn’t give for some of that weather right about now! It’s currently 90 degrees and HOT. So over it.

The city was beautiful, and we loved that there were hardly any people. I guess they had better sense than us and stayed indoors.

Wow, we look really different there. I think both of us have leaned out a bit.

The only problem with that trip was that Match got the flu.  Oh and the ATM ate his debit card. Whoops! I’m not daydreamin’ about that.

I would love to redo the trip, spring for a nicer hotel, a rental car and a healthy husband. Still, I love that we made the best of our trip. We spent the last night snuggled up in our crappy hotel room with the threadbare blankets, eating hot soup from the Chinese place across the street. It was one of those just starting out vacations that only young people in love have, where you really only have each other.



George: Could this place be any further away? It’s like Siberia down here.
Daisy: That’s because we don’t like sick people.
George: You do know you’re in a hospital, right? –Grey’s Anatomy

The trip to Seattle was a lot of fun-we got to see the sights, and we spent some much needed couple time together. We both realized that we’re not big on cities, but it was still fun to experience a new place together.

A Much Needed Get Away

Rachel: No way! The most romantic song ever was The Way We Were.
Phoebe: Uh, see, I… I think the one that Elton John wrote for, um, that guy on “Who’s the Boss?”
Rachel: What song was that, Pheebs?
Phoebe: Um, Hold Me Close, Young Tony Danza.

As some of you may recall from my Christmas post, Match’s parents got us round trip tickets to Seattle as one of our gifts. We’ve both been stressed with Match’s grueling schedule, and we really needed some time away for just the two of us, without visiting family or friends, a vacation just for us. So this Wednesday we’re headed to The Emerald City in search of fun and a little time to relax and be together as a couple.
