February in Seattle

Wow, we’ve really enjoyed being back in Seattle. February has been surprisingly warm and SUNNY! Of course, I’m biased because this is also my birthday month. My mom and my husband also have birthdays in February too, so it’s been a great month of celebrating, going out to eat, and indulging in our favorite foods. The kitties have really loved us working from home too.379329_614455649272_640359797_n For my birthday, we had pink sparkling wine and assorted lovely foods at the Book Bindery. One of my favorites was the peanut butter mousse for my birthday cake! 69661_614514531272_1028716136_nLater in the week, we went to Il Fornaio with my grandparents 857528_614670423862_87399382_oand had Italian food from the region of Umbria. It was super exciting because I studied ballet in Perguia for 6 weeks when I was in college. Thus, it was a treat to have Umbrian food again!

Last weekend, we drove to Stanwood to visit the family farm. On our way there, we stopped at Target! I got to try on a few Prabal Gurung dresses too! 65987_614718652212_1714942066_nWhile they are really cute, they were too tight and looked odd on me. At the farm, we fed the horses, but it was pouring off and on all day. 574446_614761925492_127265779_n 535506_614740772882_1103033357_nFortunately, we were able to ride Classy between rain breaks at the farm.  267846_614753138102_177893614_n Later in the evening, we had awesome Korean fusion food at Revel, down the street from our new house. We love eating Asian food, especially dumplings! 45728_614810647852_1057516935_nOn Sunday, we got brunch in Ballard, wandered through the farmers market and went furniture shopping!379182_614912144452_1760448521_n Mr. F and I both had Monday off so we spent time with my Grandparents and Aunt too. 261239_614952069442_1812836923_nThis week was so nice that we went for a run during lunch around Lake Union on Tuesday!  156405_615016465392_856123212_n 267946_615022807682_887137025_nIn order to get back to work in time, we got a Car2go to drive home! It’s a pretty neat carsharing service in several major cities around the country and they utilize Smart Cars!   554259_615160950842_1289011543_n The rest of the week was filled with work. I was recently assigned a new project that is ramping up pretty intensely. Yesterday, I had four teleconferences back to back starting at 7am. Mr. F made pho for lunch though and it was pretty amazing!!574726_615314228672_1271051659_n He made it with Thai basil, eggs, udon noodles, mushrooms, serrano peppers, cilantro, fish sauce, garlic and green onions.5709_615320865372_1566536498_nLily and 559701_615324538012_782048975_n Lyra were also great study partners yesterday. 267968_615371364172_1590229426_nWe went out to dinner with my Grandparents, sister, and Uncle Tom last night to celebrate Mr. F’s upcoming 30th birthday!
