The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives inspired Mini-Vacation

Bill and I are planning a weekend getaway in August to Seattle, WA. I grew up in Olympia, WA and now reside in Spokane, Wa; about a 4 to 6 hour drive east depending on how fast you're driving. :) I have really been wanting to get back over to that side of the state for quite some time and am excited to say it's going to happen in August!! Yay!!

Bill and I are both big fans of Guy Fieri's - Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and have watched a few episodes with diners over in the Seattle area and decided that we'd love to visit some of these spots. The food at these diners looked quite delicious and it sounded like a fun getaway for the two of us.

It's really nice that my brother, Ben, happens to live in Seattle and is going to let us stay with him. I love that we'll be able to visit with him and I LOVE that he lives so close to the Market! I have missed going there sooo much...
