Seattle Part II

Well…. you all had a chance to take a peek at Lissa's gorgeous home.

After all of your sweet comments I believe that Lissa now loves all of you forever!

After Lissa picked me up from the airport we headed to Snohomish for a little shopping.

I think we had more fun looking and taking photos than anything else.

It was here that I shared with her that I have been thinking about getting my nose pierced with a VERY TINY stud and she loved the idea.

Have I told you how much I love her???

I haven't done it but I love that she is the kind of person that said…hey…I will too:-)

These photos are from Faded Elegance…my favorite shop in Snohomish. 

They were so sweet and they even allowed me to snap a few photos.

We then headed back to Lissa's house for the dinner party that night.

Lissa and her sister Stefie.

Stefie is really so beautiful and FUNNY!  It was such a blast finally getting to know her better.

She even has a CD coming out soon…serious!

This was us before we all headed out into Seattle for the day!

We walked all over and had a BLAST!

I would have bought more but the wallet is not very full these days preparing for France….I think you understand!

Our first stop was an antique store.  Bless Becky and Lissa…they did it only for me!!!

We then had an incredible lunch at the gorgeous Pink Door.

We then headed to the original Starbucks, ordered our lattes and headed to Pikes Place Market.

It was so fun to look at all the shops.

We shared a delicious crepe. 

I refused to get my photo sitting on the pig…call me crazy!

One of my favorite shops of the day has to be Watson Kennedy.

Amazing items and beautiful display.

I bought a few things that I am loving.

I will have to tell you about my  FAVORITE purchase from the weekend.

I am not exaggerating.

Run…do not walk and buy these caramels.


This is no joking matter!

Do I sound like I am kidding?

Don't even think I will share either!!!

OK…moving on.

We then headed to Fremont.

I loved being able to visit shops that Lissa loves and see the places that she enjoys to hang out.

Isn't she a beauty?

When people would walk by I was snapping photos like crazy and talking about the upcoming magazine cover:-)

Can we just say that I am the midget of this group!

I am 5'5"….and I needed heels around these girls!

There are even photos of Becky bending down to have her photo taken with me…nice.!

I am afraid that Becky is going to be mad at me for this photo…but this is my FAVORITE of her because this is WHO SHE IS.

She is joyful.  I love her heart, smile and laughter.

She cares deeply.

She is real.  If you know her…you love her.

OK…I may be getting a call from Lissa too…but this is my favorite.

Lissa makes me laugh out loud…easily!

She is FUNNY!!

Not as funny as me..but she is pretty funny:-)

I am super touchy and huggy…Lissa not so much!

I hug her just for fun…if you live near her try it.  Oh please do…I will pay you!

Lissa is genuine and real.  If you know her…you want to be her friend!

After an amazing dinner in Fremont we visited a few more shops and headed back to Lissa's home.

Every night we stayed up too late and laughed a lot!

Lissa's poor husband and children…we were LOUD!

I still have one more day to show you.

Can you bear me posting one more time on Seattle.

If you can stand it come back on Wednesday for the FINAL post…..I promise!

    …another fun post – love the pictures. I also love Snohomish…I used to live just up the road from there. It’s nice that you had some beautiful weather.

  2. Martha

    Sounds delightful…I have tossed the idea around before of a little ole stud…teeny tiny on my nose too…but just scared to do it…did you do it?
    Your photos are beautiful!

  3. Suzen

    How did you meet these lovely women? Looks like a perfectly wonderful visit so far! And those caramels, anything with butter, I say. You could feed me a shoe with butter on it and I’d probably eat it. Mmmmmmm

  4. Traci

    Granted, I do not know Becky or Lissa, but in my professional opinion, those photos captured them both very well.
    (They don’t do antiques stores? Wha???)
    The fun you girls had on this trip is contagious. I love hearing about it!

  8. Becky @ Farmgirl Paints

    Oh and now I’ve been noticing cute little nose studs everywhere! Makes me a little tiny bit want one. But oh was it a good thing I didn’t…when I told Honey he was NOT on board;)

  9. Courtney Walsh

    Looks so fun, Jeanne! πŸ™‚ I love your scarf. I love scarves. Especially ones that hang down low and cover my belly. lol And I WISH I could wear a hat like yours. Darn not-a-hat-face!
