Once and awhile one needs to escape the inn and take in a new view.
Yeah, like that.
We love to go to Pike Place Market.
We take pictures for no reason at all.
And I always try to find a place I haven’t ever been to yet.
We happened upon The Pink Door out of luck. It was not in our plans to try it this time but it is my understanding that this is what one can find behind the pink door. I must go.
I did, however, pose in front of the pink door. Jealous? I thought so. I look suspicious but really I am excited.
And because I do love all things mini, I took a picture of their adorable mini pink door for you. Isn’t it sweet? I can’t wait to go here next time!
Pause. more fun with pictures.
Dotter who works at Starbucks so we are obligated to visit the first Starbucks. Goodness all in a row.
Last year at Christmas time, this sweet man in the window asked me to watch his water for him. I did. I’m thinking this Starbucks is where he hangs out every day.
While my family headed to Pike Place Chowder for lunch, I opted for a piroshky at Piroshky Piroshky.
They have a lovely variety. My choice of beef & cheese was just as heavenly as I remember it to be.
Using my super sleuth skills, I found Stewart Street which when heading into the market leads you onto this bridge which has more lovely vendors. My goal? To meet my friends from Twitter. I do love Twitter.
If you are not on Twitter, I do recommend hopping on and connecting with others. There are plenty of spammers to watch out for and surely an overwhelming amount of sales focused people but in the midst of it all, you will find gems like these ladies.
Dotter and I may have won for goofiest picture idea for the day. It is becoming a tradition to take pictures in this restroom.
It rained from beginning to end but to me, this is the traditional Pike Place trip plus Christmas decorations. Another trip worth remembering. Another coat to set out to dry.
To celebrate, I purchased you a little give away. Just comment below mentioning your favorite Taste Hope recipe so far and I will use random.org to give away one Starbucks $15 card only available from the original Starbucks store at Pike Place Market. Hand purchased by me. Redeemable at any Starbucks store. Comment deadline is midnight on 12.15.10. Winner will be announced on our 7th day of Christmas post.
Tomorrow we shall have another helpful video on the topic of family gatherings because the fun never stops.
