    I love Dick’s! I think you were at the Holman Rd one, right? That’s 5 mins from my house and on my way home from work. Dangerous. Every once in a while, when I feel like crap, I stop in for a vanilla shake. You seriously can’t beat the prices, and they treat their employees really well. Glad you had fun!

      It was the one on Holman Road. I didn’t know that was your neck of the woods! I love Dick’s. I think my burger was less than $2, too. I had a taste of my brother’s chocolate shake and it was fantastic!

    FANTASTIC photos of the exhibit. Now I REALLY want to get down to Seattle and check it out. Have a great week Lisa.

      I think it’s there until January, so you have time!

    This sounds like such a fun trip! I love working out early in the morning – then you’re free to enjoy the rest of your day 🙂

      It was nice to get it out of the way. I felt so much better the rest of the day because of it.

    When I was younger I used to be so afraid of Egyptian stuff like mummies and whatnot. But I took an art history class last year and learning about all of the art from that time was rather fascinating!

    Also, you should let me know when you’re in Philly!

      That’s interesting that it scared you. I was fascinated by it. And when I was in elementary school, my friend moved to Egypt for a few years. I used to love it when I’d get letters written on papyrus with hieroglyph designs!

      Someday I will make it to Philly and I will let you know. I don’t know when. I think my brother will be there for a few more years at least!

        Yeah, it sounds pretty lame when I think about it. I remember my parents had to bribe me with money to get me to go into the Luxor in Las Vegas.

        Sounds good to me!

    You were in my ‘hood! Glad you had a good time. It was much hotter than usual (as you know) this weekend. Haven’t seen the exhibit yet, but I’ve heard good things. One of my favorite places to go is the Frye Art Museum just on the east edge of I5 in Capital Hill. FREE parking, nice modern architecture, and a great 1900s painting collection in addition to modern curated exhibits. Did I mention FREE parking? And it’s free to get in.

    Anyway, if you’re ever up in Seattle and want to go for a bike ride, let me know! I’m up to 40 miles in my last ride (great calorie burner) – there are some great trails in and around Seattle.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Aw yes, I know all the museums up there. I used to go a lot when I lived in Seattle. There was one that was free that I liked a lot–was it the Chinese museum maybe? I can’t remember now.

      One of my goals for this year is to go biking on the Burke Gilman trail. I will definitely let you know!

    I took a trip to Seattle once over New Years before starting my senior year in college (feels like AGES ago now). Didn’t go to Dicks but we did go to the top of the space needle and that was pretty cool. It was a great city too – so much to see and do!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I haven’t been to the top of the Space Needle since I was a little kid. I want to do it again!
