Happy Valentines' Day!


I had a pretty fun Love Bug weekend :) On Saturday, Travis and I went to Salty's on Alki's Brunch. We weren't actually there to celebrate v-day. We went to celebrate Trav's 24th birthday. He wasn't in town during his birthday weekend so I had to schedule it like 2 weeks after. Anyways... Salty's has best brunch in Seattle. If you make reservations for a seating at 9:30 am or earlier you get $10 off per person. It's still pretty expensive but completely worth it. They added more stuff since the last time I went there in October. Nom Nom Nom.

Best seat in the house. Corner booth, nice view of Seattle, & a big table.

 After brunch we had a noon appointment for the Theo Chocolate Factory Tour. As much as I wanted it to be Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory... it wasn't. It was still informative and a good experience. Did you know that Theo is the only Fair Trade and Organic chocolate makers in the US? Pretty cool. Travis said a lot of the chocolate was sour. hahah. I guess we are just sooooo use to our 10% chocolate Hershey bars.

The confection on the left was a white chocolate lemon ganache thing & the one on the right was as earl grey tea caramel. They were both tasty.


On Sunday, my family got together and went to visit my Manang's new place. We ate, played with the kiddos, and watched The Changeling. My Manang made Nutella crepes. Love them.

After work today, I'm headed over to Trav's house because he's making a lovely dinner :)  Maybe we'll give out the Valentine theme felt fortune cookies we made.

Love it or Hate it..
