So having limited funds in the bank account means getting creative for our weekend in Seattle. One of my childhood friends got married, so of course we stayed in Seattle for the weekend to celebrate! Amy and I decided to camp after the wedding since it was the most inexpensive option (without inviting ourselves over to a friend’s house), and also the most intriguing. I LOVE camping…my sister, not so much. But she was game!
So before the wedding, we set up our tent in our heels and dresses. I’m sure we were a sight to see. Granted, we were just car camping, so it’s not too difficult to make a tent happen. But hilarious, nonetheless.
During the wedding, our friends found out where we were staying and got really concerned. I mean, who in their right minds goes camping after a wedding? We were even threatened with showers, brunch, and all sorts of indoor goodness. But in the end, we decided to keep our sleeping spot since we claimed it and built it. It was ours, and we were looking forward to it!
After the wedding, we got to enjoy the outdoors and sleep next to the Puget Sound. We didn’t plan on the airplanes flying over (apparently we were near the airport), but they didn’t fly over all night – thank goodness! Still, I’m glad we did it. Camping was great, even though we couldn’t cook our breakfast hobo packets Amy lovingly prepared – there was a fire ban in place across the state we didn’t account for. *sigh*
But that just meant that we would have an amazing brunch the next day, which we did. 🙂
