Perusing the mens section at Urban Outfitters a couple months ago and saw this tank for $10. Hemmed and hawed about it for a while. I generally don’t like flag patterns (or any other pattern or color combination that could possibly be interpreted as patriotism), so that was my biggest hangup.
But the greyscale aspect was strangely alluring to me. That and the proportion. And something else that I couldn’t quite identify. SOMETHING was drawing me to this tank.
“It reminds me of something,” I told my sistar when I showed her my purchase. It was she who finally identified what the link was.

After a night of drinking, we woke up Saturday morning together. Due to Husband’s work schedule, we don’t wake up “together” on weekends all the time, so it’s always nice to revel a bit when those mornings do occur.
We stretch and cuddle. Uno comes over to one side of the bed first. Oh! You guys ready to wake up? No? Later? Then he goes to the other side of the bed. How about now? You gonna wake up now? Meanwhile, Pepper stays in her bed until the very last possible moment that she is able to hold onto her slumber.
We go through the usual weekend queries: What should we do today? Do you have anything you need to do today? And probably most important: What should we eat for lunch?
A little background information. Pho is Husband’s favorite food. As in, if he were sentenced to death and could have one last meal, it would be pho (yes, we have discussed this). Favorite food as in he made a how-to video on making pho.
I, on the other hand, never want to eat pho. Not because I actively dislike it, because I WILL eat it and enjoy it. I just never have a desire to eat it. I would rather eat almost anything. Also possibly because Husband wants to eat it all the time so therefore, I never want to eat it.
So it’s Saturday morning and we have our faces smushed against each other.
“What should we eat for lunch?,” I ask into his chin.
“Hmm,” he mumbles into my eyebrow. “How about P…..H….”
In other news, we got a new rug:

When Audrey came to visit Seattle, we had lunch at The Whale Wins, the new(ish) restaurant from the people that brought us one of Seattle’s favorite (and best) oyster bars, The Walrus and the Carpenter.
Situated in Fremont, the space is a converted warehouse space right next door to Joule. Light, bright, and airy, the best seats are in the front, right next to the huge windows, most especially on a sunny day.
The menu consists of small plates to share, with an emphasis on fresh vegetables and wood-fired preparations. The sardine toast was my favorite of the meal, followed by that incredible tart with literally, the best shortbread crust I’ve ever had. So good that I made a return visit with Husband two weeks later.
Open for both lunch and dinner. No reservations except for parties larger than 6, but if you’re free in the afternoon, there wasn’t a wait either times I’ve been there for lunch.
