HI GUYS!

Okay if you all didn't know.. me & B are huge vacationers. Every time some extra money comes in we are all about getting away & relaxing!!! 

This weekend before the craziness of Christmas we decided to do a little staycation at the AC Hotel by Marriott Seattle Bellevue Downtown!! Seriously this place was amazing.. BRAND new, so modern (& of course it had to be picture worthy so that's a given ;)

Drinks & App's at the AC Lounge

This was a place we visited quite often for a quick bite & a drink! Added the perfect little amount of fun to our romantic weekend!!! Going out is one of our fav things to do, so it was so fun just being able to go downstairs & get that same feel!!

Snowflake Lane & Bellevue Shopping

Okay.. if you guys haven't heard of the Snowflake Lane parade in Bellevue it's a MUST. Seriously so magical - me and Brandon have a tradition of going every year hehe. 

ALSO Bellevue is the BEST for shopping at Bellevue Square & all that so OBVIOUSLY we shopped every day while there with the hotel being walking distance!! Haha!

I have not felt so relaxed in SO LONG! Felt so nice just to take a step back, SLEEP IN, breakfast & bed & just cchhhhiiiiilllllll. 

We stayed in a corner suite on the top floor & it was sooo cozy!! & I'm such a sucker for a view, we got to look over the city & even the water & seattle skyline. LIKE WHAT SO PRETTY!!!!

Dinner at Seastar

Hello most MEMORABLE dinner EVER! I Still feel full from this meal HAHA!! Seastar is a seafood restaurant in Bellevue located right next to the AC Hotel & we were so excited to check it out on our special date night!

We had so much yummy seafood & incredddibbbleee service (so important if you're going to a nice restaurant!!!) everything was just way too good. The steak MELTED in my mouth & the king crab was seriously next level. Already planning our next trip back hehe.

Later that night (cause who would want this perfect day to be over??) We headed over to the AC Lounge for some drinks & app's!!! Cause what's a vacation without overeating?? Haha!!! 

The Bartender made us his special mojito's (UM SO GOOD). It was just so fun hanging with my sweet hubby & meeting some fun people! We felt like we knew most of the staff it was hard to go home! haha.
