One of the things I noticed about the fashion in Seattle is that the lower half of everyone’s bodies is definitely not ignored. It made it so fun to see the tights, stockings and boots that everyone paired with their other clothing items, and I snapped quite a few pictures of Seattle legs. Somewhere I have about six or seven more pictures … it’s either on a camera card I have not yet unpacked or in the section on my card that got corrupted. Sincerely hoping it’s the former and not the latter. Because if it’s the latter, I will seriously cry.
This is June, one of 12 Starbucks’ tasters in the world (10 of which are in the Seattle office where we were). She is exactly who you want to befriend if you move to Seattle, and we were lucky enough to hang out with her for two days.
You’ll have to forgive the lack of recipes this week. Between my sprained ankle and Nick’s strep throat, there hasn’t been alot any cooking here in the O’Malley household this week. I was very spoiled last night when a co-worker dropped off dinner unexpectedly. I am a very lucky girl! Friends have taken Madeline to school for me, dropped off coffee and even picked up groceries. There is nothing better than a wonderful support network of family and friends. I don’t know what I would do without them.
Thursdays are also Embrace Your Camera, a weekly blogger event that is the brainchild of Emily Anderson, soon to be mom of six. The idea is for moms (and dads) to get out from behind the camera and actually get IN the shot. This week, the event is being hosted by Buggie and Jellybean. These two pictures below of me and Madeline might be my new favorite pictures. They were taken two days before my Seattle trip, during a Mother’s Day tea at her school. Love, love, love that little monkey.

Last week, at Nick’s soccer game, Madeline stole one of the kids’ balls and was dribbling it up and down the field. As we were leaving, Nick got his official team shirt for the season, and she was lucky enough to score her own shirt from the director. Tie-dye pink, thankyouverymuch. She can officially play in September and seeing her with the ball, I can’t wait to get her in the game. This morning, a friend kindly picked her up to take her to school, and she dropped off a bag of shoes that her own daughter had outgrown. As soon as Madeline spied the pink cleats, all bets were off. The soccer ball came out again, along with the soccer shirt. September can’t come soon enough for her.
