I want to wear this Oscar dress

Wow, did you see Mandy Moore in Vera Wang Resort 2011 at the ?
Oh my goodness, I would love an excuse to wear Mandy Moore's dress when she and Zachary Levi sang on the Oscars! 

I also adored many of Anne Hathaway's many dresses, particularly the Atelier  Spring 2011.  [source]

A winter kiss!

It has been chilly in Seattle so I'm thinking of packing for Cabo a week early. These adorable, furry ponies made me smile and melt a little, so I wanted to share them with you all! Happy winter!

Pictures from my 28th birthday (11 days ago)

We had a lovely and fun brunch at Bastille in Ballard for my birthday two Sundays ago! I had a French 75 and the Croque Madame. It was divine. 
Mr. F and I took out his new Christmas remote control helicopter to Discovery Park because it was sunny and not too windy. 
We even took a few pictures on the Magnolia bluffs. I love this background. 
For dinner we went to Pazzo's in Eastlake for birthday pizza! 
My sister took us to the Harry Potter exhibit at the Pacific Science Center
It was the last night of the show!
I wish I could have taken pictures inside the exhibit. We loved seeing all the costumes and wands. Voldemort's wand was the best!

I have returned from Chicago!

I had several interviews in Chicago this last week, so I wore my suit most of Thursday and Friday. After interviews, we hunted for the perfect apartment and did a little bit of sightseeing!
 On Friday, we saw the infamous Chicago Bean, or Cloud Gate, sculpture in Millennium Park! It was amazing! It was a clear, sunny 50 degree day, without many tourists!
 I love the contrast between the skyscrapers and the reflective bubble. 
 Kuky got to visit Chicago too! We all love the view of Lincoln Park from our hotel, the Belden-Stratford!
 Before we left we had to try traditional deep dish pizza from Gino's East! It's in the neighborhood we hope to live in too!

Mr. F and I leave tomorrow for an apartment hunting trip to Chicago! I also have four interviews. Please wish me luck!

(Blog posts will be infrequent until I return to Seattle, Saturday night!)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Did you see the Cee Lo and Gwyneth Paltrow duet of "Forget You" at the Grammy Awards last night? 

Wow, check out these gorgeous gowns from my birthday yesterday. Wouldn't it be lover-ly to wear dresses like these beauties?

It's my birthday!

Mr. F, my parents, grandparents, my sister and her boyfriend all went to dinner with me, the night before my birthday! We went to Cicchetti in Eastlake. We got to try out my new birthday camera too, so some of these photos are quite creative, due to the lack of flash.
 I had the amazing and unique Butternut Squash Salad!
 I also had the pan fried chicken with quince-ginger glaze and minted green beans! (Yes, there is a food setting on the camera that helps enhance and saturate the food!)
 I also blew out the candles on ricotta fritters with huckleberry sauce! They were delectable. 
 Of course, we had flour-less chocolate cake too! My sister, dad, grandmother and uncle are all chocolate fiends. My mother and I love all desserts, so we always pick a few options!
 Uncle Tom, me, Tootie and Mom

If you're ever in Seattle, I highly recommend this Mediterranean restaurant, in addition to its Euro-Italian sister restaurant next door, Serafina!

It's raining cats!

We spent Saturday running errands before the torrential rain storm. Fortunately, it only lasted for an hour, or so. I just got a haircut and we're going out to dinner with my family for my birthday. I can't believe I'm turning 28 tomorrow!! Ahhh, 30 is approaching!

By the way, these adorable kitties make me smile. Enjoy!

its raining cats!
