Weekend Wrap Up – Pride

This weekend started an entire week (or summer) of HOT weather in Seattle and it was perfect timing for Seattle’s PrideFest!

Saturday we opted for a local festival so we could lay low in anticipation for the events happening all day Sunday, here is what happened…

First of all, my oldest and I had to stop and grab breakfast before all the Seattle PrideFest began and we ran into Colin, who was all ready at his Starbucks store rockin the awesome rainbow tie and suspenders!

#ToBeAPartner inspires me everyday because of partners like Colin!

Then it was time for pre-Parade set up and photos for the Lifelong Aids Alliance, my home away from home and seriously the best group of people you could EVER volunteer with!

What a blast it was to photograph the making of a Pride float with all the Lifelong volunteers!  By far my favorite Seattle PrideFest year!

We started walking and immediately came upon the Starbucks Pride Alliance Partner Network which filled the streets there were so many partners representing today!  Again… these partners amaze me with their Pride in their company, each other and supporting equality for all.  Thanks Starbucks Pride Alliance Partner Network for filling our streets with LOVE!

Then after a long walk all the way up the Pride parade route to the Seattle Center… we had to get our Starbucks refreshers to beat the 90+ degree heat.

Then, after a nice COOL bus ride (thanks Sound Transit for AC!) it was time for a break then onto the next relaxing event… a family outdoor movie in the shade of our favorite Eastside garden.  Of course I HAD to bring my Starbucks popcorn to the party!

Today also marks the first day of July, and my monthly challenge to COUNT ALL MY CALORIES in honor of Starbucks launching their new calorie menus.  Which means, a lot of water… no extra latte’s or frappuccinos for me, Boo.  BUT, it also means a new bikini after I’m done… YEAH!

Also, I added up my June Starbucks costs which total $565.70 and are still running the 500-600 dollars a month that every month has been.

I hope everybody enjoyed their weekend no matter what you ended up doing.  And for those in the PNW that have days of these high temps still on the radar… Starbucks refreshers are a great way to cool it down (and they come in Pride colors)!
