On our second day in Seattle, we spent most of our time downtown exploring. We started off at Pike Place Market and made our way to the first Starbucks! Although I heard this isn’t actually the very first Starbucks… apparently the original (where they started roasting coffee) was in a building just a few blocks north that is no longer there.
The weather was absolutely perfect while we were out, Seattle is so gorgeous!

Matt, Olivia, the boys and I walked around Pike Place for a while and stopped for a snack at The Crumpet Shop and lunch at Beecher’s for some Spicy Mac ‘n’ Cheese! Beecher’s Mariachi Mac and Cheese has roasted Anaheim chiles, a blend of fresh veggies and Beecher’s award-winning Flagship cheese. I loved the spicy, south-of-the-border kick! A must try for mac and cheese lovers!
The boys loved the Market Theater Gum Wall. It’s a local landmark in Post Alley under Pike Place Market. Colorful, icky, and pretty!
I love this photo of Matt, Olivia, and Maddox. Dimples on dimples on dimples : )
Here it is in all of it’s coffee making glory: The first Starbucks! I love that they still use the original mermaid logo!
The line went outside of the store but it wasn’t too bad, we only waited about 10 minutes max. Look how tiny it is! As you can see, there isn’t a lot of room for storage!
Matt and his OG Starbucks!
After leaving downtown, we had a little work break and headed to the Space Needle.
It was super windy at the top of the Space Needle, as you can tell! Maddox kept opening his mouth in the wind, it was adorable!
We spent the next day in Bellevue and took the babies to lunch. Maddox looks so presh in his Eat More Rabbit Food kids shirt!
Later in the day, I had the honor of visiting the PR team from Evolution Fresh at Starbucks Headquarters while I was in Seattle.
While I was at Starbucks HQ (ummmmm, so cool!) my girl Lynae taught me the BEST healthy Starbucks trick in Starbucks history! She showed me how to get a real fruit, vegan smoothie AT STARBUCKS! All you need to do is buy a bottle of Evolution Fresh (I chose “Defense Up“), and a banana, and ask your barista to blend it with ice for you! They can even add whey protein powder for you! My mind was completely blown. This is my new go to travel meal. I wish I knew about this sooner, I’m seriously so excited!
Now I’m currently in Dallas!
Can anyone tell me some awesome healthy restaurants and places to go?!
