Am I really this behind on the week?  Tomorrow is Wednesday and I have yet to post my weekend update.  Nor did I give you a “what i wore” post earlier in the week.  Where does time go, really?  My weekend was a fantastic,  to say the least.  And, I’m dying to share the pictures.

Is this not a great view?  I have about 2 more weeks at this window before I move to a new floor in our building with my team. Nonetheless, I spent Friday afternoon taking glances at Elliott Bay while on a call, amazed at the large ship slowly sailing by my window.  Here’s to hoping view #2 is a good one.

On Saturday I went shopping with a dear friend from my hometwon that just moved to Seattle (pictures to come of the new jeans).  I’m thrilled that this friend is now in Seattle and absolutely can’t wait to spend more time with her husband, her adorable dogs and newborn son.  At any rate, we stopped by Anthropologie just to look and saw this creative display of a gorgeously decorated bed under a tent.  I want it.

On Saturday night I went to one of the best concerts I’ve been to in a while: Boys II Men.  One of the fun things about living in a big city is the combination of these three things in my inbox every morning: LivingSocial, AmazonLocal and Groupon.  I probably buy at least 1 a week and last week, I bought three.  I purchased two tickets, took a friend and we sang along to just about every song you would know by the group: I’ll Make Love to You, On Bended Knee, Water Runs Dry, Motown Philly…the list goes on.

I’m not kidding when I say it was one of the best concerts I’ve been to in a while.  Imagine thousands of people who are your age, together in one arena, singing along to a group that all of you remember dancing to at your middle school dances.  To add to the excitement, the person I took with me had connections to ground level seats and I scored one of the best views in the house.  It was a blast.

And finally, I had the opportunity to go to my first NFL game on Sunday, thanks to a vendor of our company that was invited by one of his vendors up to their suite at Century Link.  Bottom line: VIP passes to an amazing room where it was all you can eat and drink while sitting in plush seats to watch your new hometown team gets squashed by your old home state’s team (Seattle Seahawks v. Atlanta Falcons).

This will probably be my last eventful weekend until my birthday.  Stay tuned.

A few links for your Wednesday.
