Its My DarlinFun Seattle Local Blog -

Dana Landon writes a really entertaining Seattle blog filled with amazing fun fashion and food around Seattle - her latest post was on  the July 4th Vegan BBQ at Quickie's on Capitol Hill in Seattle. 

Some might not know I am a vegetarian, but I also grew up on meat and the idea of a BBQ without having to worry about the meat juice or smoke getting on my food sounds heavenly.

Quickies also has a location in the U District, and I would recommend the visit if you get the craving...  Nothing like vegan home style meals.

Capitol Hill has so many awesome places to be entertained, but even just a walk down the street makes you really feel like you are living the Seattle dream.

Some of my favorite spots -

Portage Bay (Roanoke Park), Volunteer Park, Byzantion Greek

Looking to Live In Seattle's Capitol Hill?

Capitol Hill homes are beautiful - especially the old historic Seattle mansions, but I also love all the Green townhomes they have been building lately.   Some of the condos in Capitol Hill are also very cool because many are old houses converted or old 1930s apartments that have been upgraded and converted.  Check out Capitol Hill and make sure to check out some of these spots and Dana's blog:)

About Me: 

Seattle real estate has been a huge part of my life for well over a decade since I began my career in real estate,but also before that time when I was in the process of purchasing my own first home.  Buying your first home can be quite overwhelming,but I have managed to help many first time home buyers along the way.

Move up Seattle buyers and other types of specialized purchasing is a great passion of mine!  I love Seattle houseboats and you can find me down on the docks of Lake Union and Portage Bay several times a week.   Other aspects of Seattle real estate that I adore include Queen Anne Real Estate,Wallingford Real EstateBallard Real EstateGreen Lake Real EstateLaurelhurst Real EstateMagnolia Real Estate,andSeattle Waterfront Real Estate.

Courtney, great tips! I just love it when I come across a new blog that's fresh and unique. "It's My Darlin" looks like one I'll have to check out. I wish I could be a vegetarian...I love steak too much though!

I like your profile pick Colleen - almost did not recognize you!  Dana's blog is cool - glad I stumbled on it.  I have been a vegetarian since I was 15... which was over half my life ago - still miss those red and white checkered paper food containers that usually only come with meat, though....

Ha ha!  Now that would really not be the point - lots of prawns here around Seattle, though, if that is what you are after:)

Thanks Courtney!  I'm so glad you enjoy my blog!  Keep checking back, I try to do at least one veg food spot per week whether it's a specifically vegetarian restaurant (, a non-veg restaurant that is more than happy to cater to non-meat eaters like us (, or my insane thirst for all things sugar (  And definitely check out the BBQ next year, you will LOVE it.

And even though food and fashion are usually in separate blogs I just love them both so much so I decided I would just go for both.  It's so fun when I get positive feedback from people who feel the same way.  My mission with the street style is to capture the very unique style that Seattle pulls off.  Yes, there is PLENTY of bad fashion just like any other city but there is a huge amount of incredible style struttin around out there waiting to be seen.  We live in such a fantastic city don't we?

Thanks again for the comments,
