Jeans? Wet hair? Water drops on my glasses and clothes? Wet ground? Ah, must be summer in Seattle. After a pretty big (for here) heat wave, things have cooled way down and we even got a fair amount of rain on Sunday! It's funny to go from swimming in the lake one day to bundling up and wishing you had your umbrella a few short days later.

This weekend was pretty quiet, which was much needed after having a busy couple of weeks. My grandma had her heart surgery a couple of weeks ago, and it went very well, which was a relief. Unfortunately, a bunch of family drama came up during that time, but everyone is healthy and everything seems to have resolved as best as it could.

This week, I kicked off the week with a bachelorette party for my friends Sam and Megan, who are getting married this weekend! Along with about 12 other people, we rode the Cycle Saloon around Ballard. It was hilarious and way more fun than I expected. Tuesday I took in a showing of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou at a local theatre; Wednesday I went swimming; Thursday I had dinner with my friend, Jeremy; and Friday I went to my parents' house to watch some old home movies I hadn't seen in years.

Needless to say, after all that hubbub, I had a reallllllly lazy Saturday. I honestly just laid in bed watching movies, cuddling with the cats, and napping all day. It. Was. Awesome. My favorite thing I watched that day was a documentary about Kathleen Hanna called, The Punk Singer. It was SO good. She is such an awesome, influential woman and has really affected my brand of feminism over the years.

Sunday I met up with Katie for some shopping and blog photos. The morning was pretty dry, but we were out of luck by the time we were ready to take photos. As you can see, we got quite wet!

Anyway, those are the updates for now!

What have you guys been up to lately?

Follow me on:


  1. Ah - I love rainy days (or not-so-rainy ones) in bed after a hectic couple of weeks.
    I keep a list of films on hand for just such an occasion.

  2. I'm so happy to hear your grandma is doing well! It's our rainy time here- the monsoons come a lot of the evenings which is a really nice break from the crazy heat. You look so cute and the rain goes well with this nautical look! Love the photo location!

  3. Oh Becca! Only you would pose in the rain and still work it. I've been addicted to catching Golden Girls reruns on the Hallmark Channel every night of the week, followed by Frasier reruns.

  4. Wow, you weren't kidding! I agree with Marg, no one else could make this wet look work so well! :) That CycleSaloon looks hilarious! I saw one in Germany while I was there but didn't get to try time!

  5. Still looking amazing, rainy day lady! We are total rockstars for braving the rain :)

  6. Id say you still look really great for being all rained on. Sounds like you had a really fun and productive week!

  7. Only in Seattle will you get so wet during the summer! My mom was telling me you guys were in a drought. Is that true? I can't imagine not knowing what the weather will be there!

  8. What a fun post! Love the classic navy, white and caramel colors here - I'm convinced I need to try more navy colored things now hah :P
