Today was "Play Day" for me. My mom has season tickets at the two local theatres in Seattle. It's kind of our mommy daughter time. This time we got to bring my sister-in-law with. It was so nice to have girl time with out the little ones around. On the agenda today was lunch, the play, and Pike's Market. A fun filled day with a little touch of Spring in the air to keep us dry.
We started by walking off the ferry and heading to lunch. My lunch consisted of shrimp and lobster tacos. I wish that I would have taken a picture for you. Two blue crispy tortillas were wrapped in a soft flour tortilla and filled with lightly sauteed shrimp and lobster. They had a buttery taste that complimented the tangy lime dressing that went on top. The bed of lettuce was spotted with pico de gallo which gave it some extra zip. My mouth is watering just explaining it to you.
Next stop was the Paramount theatre. They are showing "Mamma Mia!" right now and it was AMAZING! It was such a well rounded show. The story was beautiful, the acting was superb, the costumes were blinging, and the singing was goosebump inducing. I am one of those people who get goosebumps on my arms when I hear something amazing. Today, I had goosebumps upon goosebumps. An amazing show full of laughs, shaking in your chair with the beat, and a few tears. I left with the urge to watch the movie. If you haven't gotten to see this, I strongly recommend you take the time if it comes to your town.
After the play, we worked our way back down to the ferry. On the way is Pike's Market. This area is mostly known for the boisterous fish throws that launch sea creatures back and forth to each other while yelling and singing. It's also know for it's amazing fresh flower arrangements. It's one of my favorite things about Seattle. They also have amazing produce vendors snuggled in between the seafood and flower vendors. With Spring, comes an abundance of flowers. The roof of Pike's Place is covered with flower pots of Daffodils. Rows and rows of them. You can't help but look up in amazement. Today's arrangement consists of Daffodils and Tulips. They look perfect on my table. When you buy them at the stand, they wrap them in paper for their journey. It's like a mini parka for the flower. People nestle them in the crook of their arms like Ms. America. It's a sight to behold all the flower arrangements that make it on to the ferry.
Such a perfect way to end the weekend. Now it's time for me to stuff my conference folders and get ready for a busy few days. Have a wonderful week everyone!
