This year we started by staying even closer to home. Thanks to my parents, we were blessed with two tickets to Wicked. My husband then took it as a perfect opportunity to plan a staycation. He went onto Hotwire.com and found a fabulous deal to stay at the Millennium Hotel downtown, where we basically stayed for two nights, for the price of one.
Before the show we devoured our favorite things...coffee, and visited some places we haven't visited before such as Coffee Emporium and It's Just Crepes.
Mike had a savory crepe...egg, bacon, mushrooms, spinach, cheese.
I went sweet...yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries :)
Lunch...pesto, mozzarella (fresh), and tomato...a must make at home.
Mike's lunch, thumbs up of turkey swiss and red pepper jelly.
We went back to Coffee Emporium for breakfast the next morning. We were short on time, otherwise we would have partaken in their Sunday morning waffles. Smelled fabulous!
We loved spending the evening before the show, acting as if we were tourists, especially in Fountain Square and at McCormick and Schmicks for dinner.
And then on to the best show I have seen:
So in closing, I highly recommend taking some time to take a staycation, to rejuvenate, reconnect, and enjoy your town with new eyes.
