Seattle Bound.

What a busy last two weeks.  My life has literally gone from 0 to 1000 in the last month.  A month ago (I guess right before the Shamrock half marathon) I did not have much to do.  I was beginning a job but not working every day.  I was relaxing, making sure things were clean at the house etc.  After Shamrock, it seems my life is constantly on the move.  I can’t say I thrive on being always on the go, but I don’t mind it either.  It’s just a big change.

With work and my commute, I’m away about 45 hours of the week right now.  (That far beats the few hours a week I was away the months before working). 

Anyways long story short, I’m once again in a transition mode.  I am transitioning to having a job again and now transitioning into wedding planning.  In my little free time, I find myself reading wedding planner blogs versus healthy living blogs…I’m still here though.  I can truly say I am in a very good spot in my life.  Although I’ve been limited on the internet (sorry twitter, instagram, facebook and blogging) I am still enjoying reading blogs and chatting with people on various medias. I’ve just gone from sending 100+ tweets daily to 15.

That being said a few months ago my parents surprised me with a plane ticket to Seattle.  My oldest brother Doug and his wife live out there.  My parents were going to visit and then surprised me with a plane ticket to go as well.  This all happened before I began work, but luckily I was able to get off to go!  It couldn’t have come at a better time because lord knows I need to talk with my mom and dad (as well as my sister in law) about how to plan a wedding.

So from now until next Monday I will be hanging out in Seattle.  I’ll be visiting my brother and his wife Lindsay as well as their beautiful child (and my neice).  I’ll be exploring Seattle, possibly finding a 5k or 10k to update my athlinks with a new state and finally (hopefully) visiting the Oiselle HQ!

It’s going to be a great time and I could not be more excited for this adventure.  I might even have some good blogging content afterwords!

Questions for you:

Have you ever been to Seattle?  Any recommendations?

When was the last time you took a vacation?
