Real Talk + Seattle Weekend Getaway Photos

Happy Monday lovers!  I hope you're all having a relaxing 3 day weekend :) 

My blog has been a little silent for the past couple weeks and I wanted to let you know that I'm still here, and I didn't quit blogging!  I have received a couple emails & comments on Instagram from a few of you and I am honestly so flattered that 1) people even read Typical Domestic Babe in the first place and 2) that you are genuinely concerned about the silence on here! 

I started this blog as a way for my friends & family to keep up with what I'm doing, and also mainly as a resource where I could share all the things that I'm passionate about.  I never started my blog with the intention of making this my career, or gaining notoriety {as some other people do}.  This is a hobby for me - a hobby that I love.  I love helping people and sharing my recipes, new products that I'm using, great fashion finds, etc. with anyone who is willing to listen.  It genuinely makes me so happy!  At the end of the day, if one of you tries out a recipe that you found on my blog and shares it with your family at dinner that is such an amazing feeling for that is a little difficult to articulate.  It's just a really, really good feeling. :)

With all that being said, I kind of feel like I'm in a creative lull right now.  So instead of publishing a bunch of junk "filler posts" on my blog, I would rather have things be a little quieter than normal around here.  Quality over quantity!

Anyways, hope that makes sense.  I really appreciate all of your support & comments - it means so much to me!

In other news, Adam & I took a quick weekend trip to Seattle a couple weeks back and I've been meaning to share some of the photos with you guys!  One of my very best friends & her hubby built a BEAUTIFUL new home, and we flew up there to stay with them, check out their new pad, see my mom, and do some fun tourist activities.

Flying into Seattle is always such a gorgeous sight.  Majestic Mt. Rainier never fails!

We've been friends since we were 15.  Living on different coasts, we definitely don't see each other enough anymore...

Cheesy tourist picture!

Wine tasting in Woodinville.

It started pouring snow!

Dinner with friends....

Cozy layers by the fire

Our friends have the cutest Shiba!

Adam & I may or may not have done a lil bit of cuddling with him in bed-please don't tell Ace :)

We took a fun noodle making class!

Hand making Asian noodles.

We took a direct red eye flight from Seattle on Sunday night, and made it back to watch the sunrise in Miami on Monday morning....Adam went to work & I slept in bed all day hehe :)

It's always so nice to come home to our little bears.



  1. I was wondering where you went!! Sometimes we need a break to get the creativity flowing again!

  2. Glad to see a new post! I was gonna poke you with a stick to make sure you were still alive (or probably just email you)! Loved the pics. Your friend's shoes (the cagey ones) that she's wearing in the 6th picture down are sooooo awesome.
