THE EDGEWATER HOTEL: SEATTLE, WA

From the moment we walked into the lobby at The Edgewater Hotel for our quick staycation, we were greeted with smiling faces and exceptional service, and it lasted until we stepped out the door the next day. I was initially attracted to The Edgewater for its incredible views, but I will return for the overall amazing experience.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a room overlooking Elliott Bay with a view of Mount Rainier. We live just a few blocks from the hotel, but it felt like we were miles away. Being on the water was so relaxing and peaceful, and I loved watching the boats pass by our window. Our room had a cozy fireplace that I took full advantage of lounging beside it after a hot bath in the CLAWFOOT TUB. The fact that our room had a clawfoot tub took it to a whole other level. The room was so cozy and had a lodge feeling about it that I loved.

After a few hours relaxing in our room we headed down to the hotel's restaurant Six Seven for a delicious dinner. On our first ever trip to Seattle, our friends took us to The Edgewater to show us one of their favorite brunch spots, Six Seven Restaurant. I had been dying to try it out since then and was really excited for dinner. We were so excited to be seated right by the window for the main attraction: the sunset. The sunset was seriously breathtaking! I don't know about y'all, but I just have this thing for sitting by the water, I love it. The ambiance of the restaurant was outstanding and the food and drinks were incredible. I had the filet and ben had the Salmon and both were delicious. My mouth is watering just remembering that delicious cheesecake we shared for dessert! I will be back sometime soon to give their famous brunch a try.

With extremely full bellies, we retreated to our room for the evening and slept soundly in the comfy bed. We were rested, rejuvenated and ready to tackle the week. My vote is that everyone needs a staycation every now and again and The Edgewater Hotel is the perfect place for it.

If you are visiting Seattle for the first time, a stay at The Edgewater Hotel would be the perfect choice. It is the only hotel built right on the water and will give you the true Seattle experience with its convenience to all the major attractions. I couldn't recommend it more.

FLYING OVER SEATTLE

Ben and I had one of the coolest experiences of our lives to date this past weekend! We flew over Seattle in a single engine, 4 seat plane with Cloud 9 Living

A few months back when we celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary, I surprised Ben with the "Learn To Fly" experience. Ben has always had a thing for planes and had been talking about giving flight school a shot. I knew this 45 minute flight where he could get a feel for flying would be a nice alternative to jumping right into getting his pilot's license.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day in typically rainy Seattle. Clear skies, light wind and lots of sunshine made for optimal conditions for our flight. Ben, along with the help of the FAA Certified instructor flew us over Lake Washington, Bellevue, Seattle and Elliott Bay before landing with Mt. Ranier in the distance. It was AMAZING!

If you live in the Seattle area, I couldn't recommend this fun experience more! If you decide to book this experience or any of the other awesome experience through Cloud 9 Living, make sure and use code MOLLY15 for 15% off your total purchase until June 30th.

HOW TO HAVE THE PERFECT SUNDAY IN SEATTLE

RAIN COAT: THE NORTH FACE (C/O) | BLACK DENIM: CITIZENS OF HUMANITY | CHELSEA BOOTS: TOPSHOP | BAG: REBECCA MINKOFF

This past Sunday was the epitome of perfection (minus the spurts of rain throughout the day) and I'm going to share all the details with you so that you too can have the perfect Sunday in Seattle.

Sleep in late and wake up to a nice cup of coffee while you watch the rain fall. If you're lucky, there will be a break in the rain and you should take it as your cue to make your way to brunch. Head straight to Portage Bay and order the Classic French Toast. Take advantage of the infamous Breakfast Bar and top your tasty treat with an assortment of seasonal fruit, nuts and whipped cream. If you are more of a savory eater than a sweet eater, go for the Migas. Portage Bay is one of my favorite meals I have had in Seattle so far and you will not be disappointed.

Next, head for a stroll to walk off your brunch. My favorite place to walk is definitely Pioneer Square. The original square in Seattle is filled with cobblestone streets and quaint shops and cafes. It's one of my favorite parts of Seattle and definitely an area that can't be missed.

After Pioneer Square stop in for an afternoon pick-me-up at Storyville Coffee. Have you been following along with my Seattle Sips series? You can read all about Storyville here.

Finally, finish off the day with a stroll through Pike Place Market and pick up a giant bouquet of $15 tulips. The flowers are one of my favorite parts about living in Seattle, and I always seem to find myself at the market on Sunday's. There's nothing like brightening a dull Monday morning with a colorful vase of flowers.
