Wednesday, SW and I headed North to Bellevue. Barely awake we stumbled into local haunt Posies for some breakfast sandwiches and coffee minutes after they opened their doors for the day. Waiting for the mambo-20-ouncer of latte I came to the conclusion that all I was getting was more milk. The ‘all beverages made as doubles’ sign did not register at 6:40am. Eventually, sammies, milk with a splash of expresso, and SW were passengers in my vehicle and I was headed north!
We made it to our first destination at the meet up time of 9:40. Chris Draft offered SW and I two Seahawks Training Camp day passes. I was totally impressed from the get go. The facility was great looking, location was ideal, music was blasting, food and beverages were free, and we got access to just about everything! We received what I refer to as the Draft Special….better than VIP access. It was impressive to watch the athletes. Strong. Tall. Thick. Manlyness galore. I should have expected nothing less from last year’s Super Bowl champions.
Around the time of my diagnosis I was told about the business Glassybaby. I’ve spent lots of time eyeing the lovely candle holders online. Now, I was a few miles away from their Bellevue store. I decided it was time to get to know these beauties up-close and personal. I walked away with some gems and made a great connection with store manager Pam Jenness. (I see a possible connection for a fundraiser in my crystal ball!)
Now, starving, we took a hard turn towards the Purple Cafe in Bellevue. Purple did not disappoint with my tasty falafel sandwich and crisp flight of white wine. I was very full, a tad sunburnt, and slightly buzzed from the wine.
My last stop in Washington was me plopping in my passenger seat. I took a good solid nap while SW took us most of the way home. It was just what I needed; then I could swap positions with SW so he could get in his nap so we’d both have enough energy to make dinner after we got home.
Thank you Chris for making my day fantastic!
