Seattle Girls Trip

This has been a very busy year for us!  Probably one of the most crazy, hardest & rewarding years of our lives!  Jen recovered from some major surgery, Mel's husband finished law school and passed the bar, we launched a new website and two new product lines, and we helped our kiddos complete another year of school!  Phew!!  A girls trip was in order!  We haven't taken one in a few years (we went to NYC in 2013), so we decided to pack our bags & fly to Seattle for a few days!

We mini-blogged our adventure on our Instagram page we made just for our trip!  You can see all of the photos & videos HERE!  We picked out just a few of our top favs from our trip to share with you here:

Eating at the top of the Space Needle!

When you go to Seattle, you HAVE to visit the original Starbuck.  Its like the law or something! ;)

And when you run out of things to do in Seattle, you hop on a sea plane & take a sky tour!  An amazing adventure!!  

Another must-do/see/experience this is to visit Pikes Place Market!  You will NOT be disappointed!!!  And make sure you pick up a bouquet of flowers!  We suggest going to Pikes Place Market first & buying a bouquet of flowers for your hotel room!  It will cheer up your room & will make you smile!!

We tool a ferry over to Victoria, BC to spend a few days there.  We heard that the whale watching there was the best, plus the city is so beautiful & there are some really neat things to do there!  On our whale watching trip we saw some Orcas, a Humpback, two eagles & some seals!!  One of the best days of our lives!!!

Every night of our trip we spent in the hot tub!  Ahhhhh.....it was glorious!!!

We did a once in a lifetime high tea at The Empress Hotel in Victoria.  It was an experience we will never forget (we took a ton a pics & a few videos of our tea time)!!

One of the last things we did in Victoria was going to Butchart Gardens.  Very beautiful...but it was a little crowded (don't go on a weekend)!!

And the night before we flew home, we got a chance to meet a few of our fans in Seattle!!  It was a blast meeting them...an honor!!!
