A Saturday in December

 There's only so many weekends in December to celebrate the joy of the season. There's light displays to check out, dinners with family, and lots of treats to try! And those three things are what I did yesterday, just not in that order. First up, my son and I went to The Flora Bakehouse and buy some pastries for our family. They had their bakery all decked out for the holidays and it looked so festive. 

They had a Twice Baked Passion Fruit Almond Croissant topped with Toasted Meringue I couldn't resist. It just looked too pretty and glorious. They also were selling incredible looking brownies with a thick peppermint frosting. They were even Vegan and Gluten Free. Back at home, we shared our treats and they tasted so high quality and Christmassy. The brownie was super dense and I loved the peppermint frosting. We loved the toasted meringue on the croissant and the filling was so flavorful. 

When darkness started falling, we drove to downtown Seattle to see the holiday decor. Every year the tree is different, so of course every year we have to go see it. They also had a beautiful light display set up and there was no shortage of people taking selfies. This year there was even a stage with live performers. And they had firepits with stuff to make s'mores. It really was a vibe in downtown! 

For dinner we headed to Columbia City to Taco City. They have heated, outdoor seating and a daily happy hour from 3-6 pm. I saved a bunch on my food and Margarita. I had the Chicken Quesadillas, some chips with salsa and guac, and a Strawberry Marg. They had a pretty Christmas tree and even a D.J, spinning some tunes. 

Such a fun Saturday during the holiday season!
