This is my first attempt to post something on my blog so we will see how it goes.
I really am interested to see how I like blogging. I have read so much about it and many of my friends and family have blogs. I hope that what I write or blog about may be worth the time of those who read it. What I really plan on using this blog for is to keep people up to date with things I am up to or things I have recently done. I will also throw in a random article of what I do at work and also I will use this blog to post things about EHS Football.
Ryan Ward and his wife Megan came up and visited the weekend of April 25 and 26. Although Megan was not feeling well (it was not the swine flu) she battled through it. We had a large list of things to accomplish while they visited. Friday night on their arrival we had a big barbecue and lounged in the hot tub.
Saturday we drove into downtown Seattle and we went to our wedding cake taste testing at Seattle Dessert Works. All I have to say is wow. It was the best way to start off a day. The cakes are amazing and we are very excited to share them with you on our wedding day.
I have forgotten how much I love downtown Seattle. The new stores they have added are great like my favorite H&M. Hillary my little sister says their is just a huge difference between the stores in Europe and here in America and I will have to agree with her. I think it is comforting that you are buying a t-shirt for 7 pounds and you think you are getting a great deal because you are like hey it is 7 pounds but really it is like $14.
I love walking through Pike Place Market. Even as a local and visiting the market is a blast. With so many restaurants downtown and great new places to try I still keep on going to Cheesecake Factory.
I remember a couple of years ago when I first went to Cheesecake Factory thinking it was the greatest place on earth, literally. I think part of the excitement was there were not that many around. This same concept was true when I was a little kid and I went to Red Robin every year for my big birthday dinner (there were not that many around). I feel like the Cheesecake Factory is now becoming the next Red Robin to me. I think I need to stop going so often and start venturing to other places to eat (but Cheesecake is so good and I can’t stop!).
To cap off the day and the Ward’s visit we went to the Seattle Sounders game. Since the NBA ripped the Sonics away from us (David Stern can suck it). I must admit I am now a huge MLS fan. I love our Sounders team. The game was another sold out venue. It was great! The atmosphere was full of electricity. Although the fans do need to work on getting some good chants beside sounders…sounders…sounders. I thought I would hear a really weak rendition of ole ole ole. I was highly disappointed. I guess American’s are not as clever in chants or being good spectators (I think I might blog about that next). The highlight of the night was when Ryan finally told Megan that Sounder FC did not stand for Sounder Foster Child but Sounder Football Club.
It has been very busy for myself of late with being engaged, planning a wedding, spring football starting and work. Until next time you stay classy my blog readers (haha, I love it)
