On Sunday my girlfriends and I took a ferry from Lopez back to Anacortes and drove straight on to Lynwood. Alderwood is our favorite mall, housing several of our favorite stores that unfortunately have yet to come north. The two most important of these stores of course being Nordstrom’s and Godiva.
There was plenty of shopping done before lunch, too much, really, and it’s a good thing I’d just gotten my tax return or I’d be in some serious trouble. I did get some fabulous new shoes in the process though, so I consider it a win. Speaking of spending money — the pictures most likely make it look like we have more than we actually do, we were, in fact, only able to stay at the hotel because we found a good deal online and split it four ways. The service at the hotel was impeccable though, and worth every penny.
There are a few more pictures on this post than the last one because I simply could not stop taking them. The city is gorgeous at night and even though we didn’t eat anywhere particularly special (perhaps I should do a blog post on my birthday — I wasn’t blogging in December so I haven’t yet shared my thoughts on that amazing Seattle restaurant) I still got a few food shots in.
