Muir Woods

Now that the weather has switched from warm and sunny to practically fra-eezing this winter, all I want to do is stay under the covers.  I did, however, take advantage of the very unusual San Francisco warmer temps while they were here.  Last weekend, the boyfriend and I took a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods.   We only made […]

New Year’s Eve, Welcome 2012

hello 2012, Last year was a good year… I moved to San Francisco, and landed a job in a top 10 market, met my special someone, paid off my student loans, and went on several vacations including Maui, New York, and countless trips back to LA and San Diego! If you look here, my resolutions […]

Thanksgiving in San Francisco

It’s been years since I’ve spent time with my family on Thanksgiving, because I’ve always had to work. This year I still had to work, but it made me feel extra special when I came home and they were already there.

Food trucks are always popping up around this city, and I’m always up for trying something new.  I’ve been making an effort not to eat at the same place twice… you know, to explore all my options.

Last Days of Summer

Okay so I know summer isn’t over just yet, but Labor Day is next week and I usually associate that with the end of summer. Maybe it’s because kids are back to school, the weather starts to change, and maybe it’s because of that old-school rule where you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor […]

My first 49ers game

Today was a gorgeous day at Candlestick Park. It was sunny for most of the day, but sure enough the fog rolled in before half-time bringing a cold chill with it. My roommate invited me to the game, and it was pretty awesome because she had really great seats. Thanks Erica! The 49ers weren’t doing […]

A visit to Alcatraz

I’m a little behind on my posts, but I guess it’s better late than never. A few weeks ago I went to Alcatraz for the first time with my sister. We took a ferry to the island, and walked around the old hallways, and run down cells inside the former federal prison. There were some […]

San Francisco Street Food Festival

Over the weekend I had a chance to sample some of the fine treats that will be at the 3rd annual San Francisco Street Food Festival. I can honestly say I tried just about everything on this menu, and it was scrumptious! The event is put on by La Cocina. It’s an non-profit organization that […]
