On our last night in Seattle, we ate at a restaurant that was right next to pike place market called matt’s in the market. They buy all of their ingredients from the market to make it fresh each day. Although the menu is always different, you can be sure to find fresh seattle seafood, native washington rhubarb, and more.

I have to say, out of all the items we ordered last night, my dad’s seafood stew was the winner. it was overflowing with crab claws, mussels, scallops, and more. It was incredible. We also ordered rhubarb cheesecake and cinnamon sugar bread pudding. both of which were delicious.

Aside from the food, the restaurant boasts a small but lively atmosphere and sits just above pike place market. If you ever get a chance to go, be sure you request a seat by the windows (you can’t beat the view)!

I am the worst at remembering all the restaurants I eat at on vacations, so documenting them here will hopefully help me with that down the line.

While in san diego over the weekend, we tried this restaurant called cafe gratitude, and it was SO good. It’s downtown in Little Italy, which is a really fun area full of shops and other places to eat. I’ve been trying (emphasis on the trying) to eat gluten and dairy free because it makes me feel a lot better than I do when I load up on sugars and carbs and stuff. Anyways, this restaurant doesn’t use any dairy, gluten or eggs when they make their food! I was kind of skeptical at first, but as I am sure you can see in the photos above, the food looked and tasted amazing.

The entire place is so pretty and full of light. I love the kind of vibe they have going on. I will definitely be returning!

My sister recently got accepted to the medical program at The University of Washington, so we have been in celebration mode for the past few days. Last night, my mom, sister and I went out to a fun dinner and then made our way over to Sweet Cooie’s in Denver.  It opened on Valentine’s Day and as far as I know, they’ve been busy ever since! Luckily, we went around 9:00 and it was fairly quiet. We had a good time listening to music (the music there is amazing), telling stories, and laughing about all sorts of different things.

They serve Little Man ice cream, which is by far my favorite ice cream in the world. You can get a few scoops on top of some cotton candy or even between two hot buns drenched in icing. So this place is pretty much the only ice cream shop I ever want to step foot in again.

I go back to arizona today and I am sad to leave my mom and sister (I am not sad about leaving this awful/cold weather). Yay for California in a few days!
