Wrapping Up My Mini Vacation

It’s the last night of my mini-vacation and I find myself staying in a little town north of Seattle. My cousin Riley’s Little League team made it to the State tournament and is being held in this little town I’ve never heard of before.

The rest of the family headed north yesterday but Jenna and I waited until today to make the 3 1/2 hour drive.

On the way, we stopped at South Center in Tukwila (aka as the start of the Seattle Rock n Roll Marathon) to have lunch at Ivar’s. No trip to Seattle is ever complete without a stop at Ivars.

After lunch, we continued north, through downtown Seattle until we got to the Seattle Premium Outlets. It’s near our hotel so we spent the afternoon shopping there. I finally got a few pieces of non-workout clothing. Tops from Gap and J Crew for $5! Can’t beat that!

We stopped at the ballpark and watched a few innings of a game, then continued further north to mecca…

…also known at the Lululemon Outlet!

After a successful visit to the Woodbury Commons Outlet in New York, I had high hopes for this store. Sadly, most of the inventory was for sizes 2, 4, 10 and 12, neither of which I am. All I got was a running visor for $5 and the travel pack! I never thought I would say that I am so excited to wear a fanny pack, but I am! LOL

Tomorrow I *really* hope I can pull off a 10-mile run around this little town. I have a route mapped out – hopefully it will work out for me. Then I drive back to Portland solo (I’ll even miss Riley’s ballgame) to catch my flight home.

It’s been such a fun trip!
