pancakeLEFTOVERS: September

Dining at Japonessa, easily my favorite Seattle sushi spot. This thriller is called the Orange Crush
It's been a while, has it not? Or at least it feels that way, even though it's only been a week since my last post. I hope the photos from my last few posts have left you in a food-induced comatose state for long enough to forget that my internet usage has been compromised by my new found, jet-set lifestyle. But really, in all seriousness,  I hope that you all can not only smell the sweet aromas of the foods I smell, taste the utter satisfaction of every first bite I take, and feel the anguish of my 70-year old, under-exercised body, specifically my legs (definitely need to join a gym now that I am back), but also that you can all genuinely experience every joyous, new moment I feel, translated via my camera and blog to your computer screens and hearts.

Moments before I left the San Francisco airport on my "I need to experience life (and momentarily press pause on the inevitable real-life that is yearning to begin before I am)" post-graduate, traveling expedition, an old friend sent me a text that read, "I hope you find what you are looking for." Now that I have officially completed my tour around the US (yes, after three weeks of hotel-hopping, I returned yesterday to the comforts of my own room), I can safely say, that although I left not knowing what exactly I was looking for (or even if I was looking at all), I have come back with a deeper sense of what I want for myself in the future, and I am steps closer to where I hope to be.  

Well, enough of the profound, post-journey personal analysis, and on to the good stuff-- the pictures. pancakeSTACKER celebrated two months last week, so to continue with what I started, here are some of the most delicious pancakeLEFTOVERS from my virtual table to yours.
Spotted: A stylish Seattelite sporting an effortlessly tousled bun, the perfect shade of cowboy boots,  a peacoat for light showers, and a knapsack for goodies
Worth the heart attack? Oh, I think so. Bacon-wrapped scallops at Japonessa
Sinfully delicious. Meet Mr. Diablos Rex a la Voodoo Doughnuts
Plaid & Peppers at Pike Place
A stop at the first Starbucks. Special treat: Enjoying a cup of Joe with a live band playing melodious tunes in the background or the sneaky, but sophisticated mister who made his way into my shot?
A discovery on the Underground Tour that was too funny not to share. One of these is not like the other...
Elegantly Eco at Pike Place: What's more stylish than shopping green?
Now, many of you proclaimed your utter disgust at this display of public sanitation gone awry. But, can we all just take a moment to acknowledge the absolute creativity and dedication of that profession of love? J+R, I hope you are as stuck on one another as you are on this wall
Well, there you have it. The last bits and pieces from Seattle and Portland. I'll continue posting about the duration of my travels, and even better, it will be in a timelier manner now that I have internet again. Last, but not least, kudos to you, if you managed to read all that up there, and thank you for continuing to follow my blog, even while I was gone!

  13. So glad you were able to visit some of my favorite spots in Seattle. Fabulous bacon right? Anyways glad your home and have developed a deeper understanding of yourself and goals. can't wait to see and hear more.

  14. Did you leave your heart (or even a part of it) in Seattle? I spent most of my 20's there and let me tell you I would run back there from socal in a hot second. So much to do, eat, breathe in (including clean air!!), and the people are amazingly kind.

    I loved the pictures you shared and am thinking a trip is in order for me too!


  15. Mmmh, need some sushi right now! :) And the doughnut after sushi :-P

    Nice blog you have here!

    Times Like Mine

  16. wow, that sushi and those bacon-wrapped scallops....just wow. I would love to get my little paws on those guys.

    and stop posting photos of the gum wall!!!

    (just kidding, don't listen to me on how to run your blog, heheh)

    I admit, it is clever AND a phenomenon - and I like that you stuck your business card on there. I just have to keep remind myself that the gum is dried out (at least mostly) and not still wet and saliva-ey.

  17. That sushi dish looks Delish... Yum
    Look Spotter Street Style

  23. This is disturbing, if you think about how ppl stick it under there desks and it soon gets stuck on your pants. But the effort put into this, makes it worth watching. It's utter imperfection. That's what makes it perfect <3
