this weekend, I...

This weekend,  I went to happy hour for work at Sazerac, where I discovered my new favorite drink - the Moscow Mule!  It's too bad that these drinks run about $15 each, because I could have downed ten of 'em.  They are ridiculously tasty!

Here's the recipe if you want to make your own:

Moscow Mule
1 ounce vodka
1 tsp. sugar syrup
Fresh lime juice
1/2 cup ginger beer
1 sprig fresh mint
1 slice of lime

This weekend, I spent some time with the family!  We celebrated my Dad's birthday/belated Father's Day/ his retirement at Lighthouse Park in Mulkiteo.  I love this park, it's right on the water and has amazing views. We BBQ'd steaks, chicken, and of course fish for me!  There was so much yummy food, and it was good to see everyone.  

This weekend, I caught the tail end of the Fremont Solstice Festival.  We didn't make it in time to see the Naked Bike Race and we missed most of the actual parade, but we did spend a few hours in the beer gardens, and we grabbed some yummy tacos at El Camion.

This weekend, I finally finished the last step in painting Chloe's ombre dresser and frames, which was spraying two coats of polycrilic over everything.  Tonight we're going to move the dresser back into Chloe's room and hang her photos, so if all goes well I should have tons of pictures to share tomorrow!

What did YOU do this weekend?


  1. I can't wait to see the picture of the dresser, I can only imagine how cute it is!! Sounds like you had a great weekend :D

    1. Well I can't wait to take a picture of the dresser! Haha. I hope your weekend was fun too!

    1. Haha ok the pressure's on now, I better deliver tomorrow!!

  3. I read about those drinks when I was looking into a place to go in Portland. Don't they have to be served in those certain cups? There was something weird about them, I can't remember though! It's like a really old drink I think.. anyway! Glad you had fun at your dad's party! Here's to boys born in June! My dad, Abraham, and Dustin too! ;)

    1. Yes they are served in awesome copper mugs and it keeps your drink super cold. :) Yay June birthdays!
