Strawberry Crepes and Carkeek Park.

For the past few weeks I have been wanting crepes reallllyyy bad, since it has literally been ages since I have enjoyed one. Sooo this morning I decided to make some for my man and I for breakfast! Surprisingly, Tim hasn't ever had them, so I made the classic strawberry crepe with whipped cream. Heaven.
I had everything on hand minus the whipped cream so I sent Tim to the store when I started on the batter. I haven't made them in forever, but they are sooo simple and easy I am definitely going to start experimenting with different fillings.

Despite how it may look towards the end of the crepe, it wasn't packed full of just whipped cream, but when I rolled it, it pooped out the end. haha They were filled with lots of strawberry deliciousness as well.

After our crepe filled breakfast, we decided to head to Carkeek Park to enjoy some time in the beautiful outdoors and wander through the woodsy trails. Our favorite thing to do on the weekends is definitely to be out in nature and go on hikes in the local parks.

Beach+Puget Sound+Trees=Beauty.

Water through the trees...

These little guys along the trail reminded me of creepy, crawly spider legs.

Can't I stay here forever?! Tooo pretty to leave..

Resting on a rock.

Talllllllll Trees. <3.

Crossing a little stream. Trying to balance. haha

Hope the weather is beautiful for you this weekend too, wherever you may be! If so, make sure you go out and enjoy it :)

Islands and Cherry Blossoms.

Today Tim and I went to the Washington State Arboretum park in Seattle to check out the Cherry Blossoms that have bloomed along the Azelea Way trail. While working at my old job in the city, I used to drive through this park on a daily basis but never took the time to stop. I was always curious about what was beyond the trees on the sides on the road, so it was nice to finally have the opportunity to check it out!

After we arrived at the visitor center we were soon reminded of our horrible map reading skills and actually took the wrong trail at first. hahaha :p Much to our delight, we ended up on an amazingly beautiful path that took us to two different islands on the lake, near Husky stadium. Foster Island and Marsh Island. Yay for crappy map reading skills and being pleasantly surprised!

It was fun leaping over the sunken part while the waves lapped at your feet.

Mossy bench in the mud. Go ahead, take a seat...

Thanks, pollution! :/

Right after we saw this sign, we noticed this dude fishing. hahaha Hope he is only catching the 
"GOOD TO EAT!" fishies. 

Toooo close for comfort.


After we made our way back to the visitor center, we immediately saw the correct trail that we originally wanted to take. lol Cherry Blossoms galore! Oh, how I love Spring :)

YUM! Moss.

Happy to be amongst the blooms.

Hammin' it up. Always.

I <3 Washington.

Field of flowers.

Thought my dream catcher could use some Spring-ness :)

Hope I didn't bore you with my loads of photos. haha Have a good rest your weekend :D

Generally I like to keep my posts on my blog light, happy and simple. Usually they consist of photos, clothing or other things that are going on in my life, but today I just can't stop thinking about this whole possible government shut down and it is making me super annoyed.

Ignorant D.C. Republicans, please get over the Planned Parenthood issue. The abortion issue is getting old in general, but this is especially idiotic. Planned Parenthood is a women's HEALTH center. They provide  healthcare services to millions of women that would otherwise never be able to afford their annual exam, birth control method of choice or other family planning services. The GOP saying that they want to cut funding to a program that HELPS women to stay healthy and prevent serious health issues like..oh you know, ridiculous. I personally have been using Planned Parenthood as my women's health provider for the past 4 years, if it wasn't for them, there are times that I would have not been able to get the necessary exams to make sure I was healthy and there would have been no possible way for me to get birth control. I have health insurance now and I will still continue to use them. Women need Planned Parenthood and women's health services!

There, I said it...not anything revelational...I know. But I feel better now haha I just wish that the GOP would stop being so ignorant and actually care about social issues for once. The publics health is sooooo important! People over profit....ugh.

Oh and I was going to originally post this on Facebook but decided that was a horrible idea due to the political demographic that consists my friends list hahaha
