Road Trip Diaries: Seattle

FINALLY---pics from my trip to Seattle (and a couple from South Dakota). Had a fantastic time there. Such a beautiful place. Spent soooo much time sight seeing that I didn't get to do much shopping for the store while there, but that's okay. Had a wonderful time anyway. You MUST make a trip there. I'm still dreaming of the fresh crab cakes. Thanks Stacie for the hospitality. You're the bestest tour guide ever!!

The famous Pike Place Market where I could have spent all day shopping for fresh fruit and flowers. I was in heaven here!

Mt. Rainier. Breathtaking.

A seagull. The locals hate them. I think they're pretty.

The Space Needle where the pride flag was flying high for gay pride weekend. What a beautiful thing.

A phallic shaped building in downtown Seattle.

Sturgis, South Dakota. Didn't see a single biker there, but found an awesome thrift store and bought the cutest boots!

Mt. Rushmore. Much smaller than I expected.

The Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota. A sight to behold and the BEST caramel corn ever!!

What I Want

I really, really want this bike from Velorbis! I would look so adorable riding along the coast on this. Okay-there's no coast here in Kansas, but still.................

True Blood

I'm beyond excited that True Blood starts tonight. Ahhh Sookie-I don't care if you are a fangbanger. In the midst of the sweltering heat of the Louisiana bayou and blood thirsty vampires you remain a true lady. Here's to you Sookie Stackhouse.

Road Trip #1: Seattle

So I lied. My first trip won't be here close to home after all cause I'M GOING TO SEATTLE! So excited!! Going on a roadtrip next month to visit my good friend Stacie. I adore a good roadtrip. I've never been there, so really looking forward to it. In the honor of Memorial Day (my friend Stacie took this!)

Gypsy Life

I adore fashion--I adore adventure. My dream is to take Dirty Betty on the road. Traveling through wide open spaces and maybe not so wide to see where life takes me as I search for lovely pieces for my shop and exciting new places to lay my head. In the very near future I will be taking off on the ultimate adventure. Just me, my brave, super supportive spouse and our yet to be purchased home on wheels.........crossing my fingers to restore a vintage Airstream, but that remains to be seen. For now, as we count down the days until our new gypsy life begins, we'll be exploring our surroundings a little closer to home in the Midwest. Hope you enjoy the ride.
