everything but the mud pie ...

Like I mentioned yesterday, I don't really think that any recap I can write will accurately display the amount of fun I had during my trip to Seattle. We saw the sights, ate some amazing food, had a monster bloggy meetup, put on a baby shower for the lovely Zoe, hosted a East coast versus West coast cupcake battle (yes, I carried my FAVORITE cupcakes across the US so that everyone could try them) and most importantly, built friendships. Oh, and we laughed. A lot. Like so much that I ended each day with a headache from the constant stress on my "smiling" muscles (you know the ones on the back of your head).

Now, looking back, I'm not sure that all of the funny moments would translate well into writing. I really think you needed to be there. Because of that, I decided that rather than bore you with endless details of Jill's desire to create cell phone apps and Mel's navigational skills, I would share my favorite moments via photos ...
Self photo on the U of W campus ...
Yeah, I ate that ...
That's right. I kissed a fish ...
The quad at the U of W. We were showing Kerrie our allegiance ...
Potato balls. Enough said ...
Jill eating the clear favorite cupcake. From Two Sweet, on the East Coast naturally ...
The cupcake battle aftermath ...
Playing with the self timer before the bloggy dinner ...
Mel and me looking rather happy ...
Blue Steel anyone?
Showing off the guns ...
We were shooting for a 1:52 ...
Post-race lunch with Janna and Mel ...
