Have you heard the news? There’s a new grocery store in town! Yep, Sprouts Farmers Market is here in Seattle, and I for one couldn’t be more excited to have a new healthy and budget-friendly grocery option.

New to the Sprouts family? Me too! I had only heard and seen Sprouts Farmers Market stores when visiting Southern California on vacations. Just shy of 6 months ago, the very first Washington location opened up in Mill Creek, about 30 minutes north of the city. Next month, Sprouts will be welcoming it’s second Washington location in nearby Lynnwood! Located conveniently off Highway 99 at the corner of 196th Street, residents and commuters can easily access the market for quick stops or for stocking up!
Who says you have to go out to celebrate the new year with friends? I’ve been fortunate to make a lot of amazing new friends this year, and what better way to toast to the holidays and 2019 than to celebrate with them? That’s precisely why I hosted a fun brunch party at home right in time for NYE!

When I started Hello Rigby back in 2013, I never imagined how many amazing women I would be introduced to, and what great friends I would end up with. I’m so lucky to call these (and more) amazing women my friends; I was so excited to host them for a holiday brunch… and proceed to take 5 million photos to document the whole thing. What can I say, blogging is a very strange, but also very wonderful, thing.
10 Ways to Celebrate the New Year with Friends
Are friends coming over tomorrow to ring in the new year? Or maybe you’re looking for inspiration (or an excuse!) to have your friends over sometime soon. Either way, I thought it would be fun to share what I planned for my friends, and some inspiration the next time you host a fun get together at home!
Holiday season have you feeling stressed? While it may be the most wonderful time of the year, it also is the busiest time of the year! Lines are longer, traffic is worse, and the hustle and bustle can have people feeling a little more on edge than usual. If you’re feeling the time crunch already, then you’ll love these holiday hacks to save you time this holiday season!

When it comes to the holidays, I’m fortunate in that most of my family and friends have pretty low expectations. Gone are the days of piles of gifts under the tree or having a huge itinerary of houses we need to visit. Most of our family prefers we just give the gift of time; we spend the holidays with each other at some point during the season and enjoy each other’s company! Despite that, someone still has to host and cook, which typically falls on my shoulders on Christmas morning. I’m not complaining, but the reality is that cooking, cleaning, and prepping can be time-consuming and a bit stressful when it comes to crunch time!
To keep myself sane this holiday, I’ve learned the magic of outsourcing things I don’t like or have time for, and I’ve learned to work smarter, not harder. Read on for my top holiday hacks to get everything done this holiday season while saving on time and not missing out on anything!
How it’s almost the middle of December already, I’ll never know. But I do know one thing; with the holiday season flying by, it’s easy to run out of time and desperately need to find last minute gift ideas for everyone on your list! I know for me, it’s those last minute party invites, relative that I forgot we’ll be seeing me, or friend coming into town for the holidays that does me in.

It was a cold, drizzly night when I pulled up to Safeco Field. My mission? To meet up with some of my BFFs and explore Enchant Christmas, a light maze, Christmas market, and ice skating rink all inside Safeco Field in downtown Seattle. It just opened up last week, and it’s here through the holiday season. I’d been looking forward to it all day and couldn’t wait to get inside to see what it was all about!

Once inside, I wasn’t disappointed. I attended on Media Night, which meant that I was able to enter through the club level and sample a few of the food offerings before heading down to the light maze area. Let me tell you – the view from above was so incredible! The twinkling lights, fun colors, and festive music put me in the holiday mood.
So what is there to do at Enchant Christmas inside Safeco Field? Read on to find out!
