Caffe Paradiso
We usually make breakfast at home because WHO WANTS TO GET READY AND BE PRESENTABLE in the mornings?  Plus, we usually just make coffee and dig in to pre-bought pastries.  But, being it is October (we ran out of coffee), we decided to just head out for brea...

DIY Monster Mobile
My main DIY project for this month was to make a baby mobile.  Not professional, but made with the sincerest of love.  I had been looking online for inspiration and found so many amazingly wonderful baby mobiles.  I thought that, with a little time and effo...

Seattle P Patch
A few weeks ago, I blogged about the Community Garden at the Marvista Park in Normandy Park.  As long as I've known, this Community Garden has been there.  Around the Seattle area, there have always been quite a bit of community gardens... long before  Mich...

Another First Thursday has come and gone! This month we went over to the MOHAI (The Museum of History and Industry) because I'd never been there since it opened.  So, it was a new experience for all of us.  Usually, the Museum of Flight is where most people...

Joe Metro
"The Northwest fills the lungs, heals the pain in my chest…" When I first heard Joe Metro it made me really appreciate riding the buses.  Seattle is such a green city…or tries to be one.  It's great to be able to rent out bikes for the day and ride around t...
