What are Residents of Washington Obsessed With?

From coffee, Marshawn, and some backyard cornhole. We love this...and a lot more!



We gotta have it. I’ll even have a bowl of cereal just before bed. 



Even on a cold day. Ice goes in everything.


Dreaming what would happen if they just gave the ball to Marshawn. 

I’m gonna be 90 years old still mad they didn’t give the darn ball to Beastmode.


Things being "haunted."

From haunted houses to old hospitals in the middle of nowhere. We love going someplace to get spooked.


Peanut butter.

Creamy or chunky. It doesn’t matter. We can’t run out!


Dog Parks.

I love going to these...and I don't even own a dog!



I’m now starting to pour it into things NOT salad. Pasta…rice…sandwiches. I’m not proud and I know I’m not alone.



There’s a reason why COSTCO sells them’ “Buy-One-Get-One Free.”


Coffee Stands.

We have coffee in the house. We have Keurig cups for days. Still gotta drop by and say hello to the nice baristas.


The National Anthem.

Do you get emotional hearing it at a Seahawks or Mariners game? Same.



Is your Kiddo having a birthday party? Gotta bring the board!!!!!!


Maple Bars.

Whenever someone buys a box of donuts, you HAVE to act fast to get one of the only three maple bars available. You snooze, you lose.


The Olive Garden.

When other restaurants come and go, the local Olive Garden stays put. Work at one? You’ll have job security for years to come.


Mac and cheese.

Don’t know what to cook for dinner? Mac and Cheese it is.


Saint Patrick's Day.

We have TWO shortest St. Pats Day parades in our part of Washington. We love being Irish for the day. Presto, just a green tee-shirt.



Every Sushi place I visit on the road for my son’s away games - is always packed.

Going to the gas station for snacks.

We love getting 50 bucks on pump four, a microwaved burrito, a bag of bugles, and a big container of Sprite.


Having a nice lawn.

Peer pressure. Gotta get outside and cut the grass. Live on the wet side of the cascades…How’s that nice moss treatin’ ya?


Happy hour.

Appetizers, well drinks, gotta have it.


Lake Chelan.

I see you and your RV or boat - in crazy weekend traffic, every single summer. I don’t take for granted that I live right here in Vacationland USA.


Talking about how long it takes to get somewhere.

Driving to the Tri-Cities? How about the Oregon Coast? We always have to know how long it's gonna take. And what route will get us there the fastest? Learn from me - if Google Maps tells you to get off I-5 and take the side streets/byway…TAKE IT! (If you don’t, you’ll get stuck in an hour-plus accident traffic.)


Halloween costumes.

You know you are - October 31st is bigger than freakin’ Christmas! Trick or Treat the Ave is the Super Bowl of elementary-aged kiddos.


White Claw.

Besides coffee, this should be the state beverage of Washington.


Putting marshmallows on everything on Thanksgiving.

Guilty as charged. Crazy fact: Our Canadian friends in BC, don’t like marshmallows on anything for their Thanksgiving. Weird right?


Pumpkin Spice.

The coffee stands keep sneaking it to us earlier and earlier. Pumpkin Spice latte in the August heat? Sure why not?
