Hi Meline, I have been following your blog since I found you on Rate My Space a few months ago (I love your style and bolg!) Anyways, I live in Kirkland and I was at Blooming Home today (in Kirkland) and was wondering if you have ever been there. It's a home Furnishing consign store and I love it!

Hey, I live in Snohomish! I surfed over here from ThisYoungHouse. I love all your shops as well. For restaurants you HAVE to try Azul in the Mill Creek Town Center and Mongos out on Hwy. 9 at 164th....it's in a gas station strip mall location but it is out of this world!!!!

Hi! I too found your blog from this young house. Thanks for sharing your great list. I live in Lake Stevens, WA. I agree on several of the places on your list, but there were also a lot of new places for me to explore. Thanks for sharing.
