A day in the life…

I’m testing out Windows Live so you guys get a crap ton of pictures so I can see how it works. Win:Win :)

This is what Will Run for Wine did Friday……

The major objective was to get some new hockey skates for hubby. For this we had to drive North.

 Toll Plaza at the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. (toll is worth the the price to live in gig harbor. no complaints here!)

On the other side of the bridge. Heading to Seattle (ish).

Mandatory coffee stop before Bitchy McBitch comes out.

Hockey shop was a bust. No shoes.


But since were here, now we get to go to my stores :)


 I’m looking for a design for a new dresser that my hubby is going to build for me. Among other things……

…and also desperately need new bike shorts….



My favorite place in Seattle.


My hubby’s favorite place….



Stop for coconut water. They were out of original so I have to try mango….


Got home. Took nap. Go out on date. Dinner at our favorite pizza shop, then bookstore.


The seasonal pie – it’s like a salad on a pizza. SO good. pesto sauce, pancetta, fennel candied walnuts, sun dried tomatoes, red wine vinaigrette, topped with arugula.


The next morning hubby went to a different skate shop and got his skates:


 Hockey skates are far more expensive than running shoes!




Everybody must now go RIGHT NOW and download Windows Live Writer. It will change your life! And you can thank Aron and Niki. THANK YOU ARON & NIKI!!!

Sue said...

Amanda said...

Great pics, and it sounds like you guys had a fun day. Hopefully those skates last longer than a pair of running shoes at that price!

SO MANY PICS--> love it :) And we def have the same taste in stores. REI is my bitch. And I love Pottery Barn when I need a nap on one of their many lovely comfy armchairs, haha. Have a great day!

Chloe said...

WOW! So I'm going to have to get this new program? Where do you get it? Looks great!

Ok. I LOVE LOVE LOVE coconut water. I could take a bath in it..or better yet...make it into a martini. YUM!

So - I got a new pair of shorts this week...some Sugar Shorts by Pearl Azumi (no idea how to spell it) Love them!!

But it looks like you had a great great day!

Kelly said...

Wow, I love all those pics. I have a mac so I can't use Windows Live Writer but I think I have something similar.

I can't believe the hockey states were so expensive. I just bought some used ones and I think they were like $25 haha, hey they work :)

joyRuN said...

Great pics, Kristen! I love Windows Live Writer - so much easier to manipulate blog posts (when I do come up with something to blog about).

Nice ass too ;)

Sounds like you had a great day. Pretty close to average day for me and my girlfriend. Coffee, drive, shop, more coffee, dinner and the book store. Love it!! Loved all the pics! Thanks :)

KK said...

Ummmm, have I missed a monumental occasion in your life? Hello supercute haircut!!! And is it naturally curly? Ohhhh I am so jealous. You can be jealous of my running, and I am going to be jealous of your hair. And just remember: you can get faster; I'll always have shit for hair. :)

The day looks fantastic-I want to come hang out with you guys for a day. And please tell me you ate more pizza than that :).

jen said...

Great pictures! I was just there! :P You are adorable.

Do you like the live writer? I tried it too and mine isn't as fancy as yours. Looks great! :)

Niki said...

So glad you like Windows Live Writer!! Now you better continue to post pics!!

I visited Seattle once and loved it! And I miss REI soooo much. We don't have one near me at all :(

Alisa said...

Wow, that was a BUSY day!

I need to get Windows Live.

Holy mother---hockey skates are PRICEY---that's like 4.5 pairs of my running shoes, if they're on sale more like 5 pairs.

Amy said...

OMG, love the pictures. I feel like I could comment on every single one. I'll spare you.

That pizza looked A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!

And I'm still obsessed with your hair. Best. Hair. Ever.

Amy said...

I just read KK's post after I wrote mine. It's true, we have the shittiest of shit hair.

Meg said...

Such a fun photo essay of your trip. Cute hair, love the strong coffee and the receipt for the skates. I'm going to go download right now!!

I have a Mac so I wonder what is similar to live writer for us?? Hmmm.

I LOVE all the pictures though! Pictures make posts so much more fun.

My husband has recently started playing hockey too. It IS an expensive sport. :)
