Happy Halloween!

Oh man. I'm exhausted from this past weekend.

Halloween Party on Friday night and the Zombie Crawl in Reno on Saturday (into Sunday)...

I dressed up as a Zombie Ballerina...I will have to get a few shot of my outfit up tonight.

Anthony did an awesome job with his makeup.... I went for the more pretty zombie look.

Today I'm dressed up as an 80's workout girl. I'm going to take it easy tonight though. Maybe go to my parents house and help pass out candy. =)

What are you doing for Halloween?


5 years.

San Francisco. October 22nd and 23rd. 
Our 5 year anniversary.
We started dating when we were just babies (or so it feels like). 
We have seen and done so much together. 
I can't wait to see more of the world with you! 
Thailand, Vietnam, NYC, Portland? 
Where ever we go next it won't matter because we will make the most of it.

And this concludes my San Fran posts. We had a good time. End of story. =) 


blue bottle.

Blue Bottle Coffee. 

Seriously some of the best coffee I have ever had. I want it every day. The New Orleans style iced cafe is delicious. You don't even need sugar. The mocha is creamy, dreamy, and chocolaty in the right way. Not overly sweet. 

I will dream of my next cup until I'm in SF again. =) 


food fool.

San Francisco was amazing this past weekend. The weather was incredible. It was actually hot! I was walking around in a tank top with no jacket at 9pm. Almost unheard of..

Anywho, while in SF we did lots of walking! Hung out in different neighborhoods that we don't normally get to spend a lot of time in. And of course we did lots of eating. 

Here is a nice sampling of some of the treats we had. =)

Blue Bottle Coffee. It's the best! 

 Boccalone. Meat Cone. Flavorful salami 

Umami Burger recently opened up a location in SF. You might have heard about the famous burger joint that's originally from LA. The namesake burger was awesome. So many different flavors going on! 
 Cheese tots. Not on the menu... you have to ask for them. Plus umami ketchup. I don't want the regular stuff ever again.  

For a mid day pick me up we found our way to the Tipsy Pig. We had a few rounds of a drink called Strawberry Fields. Delicious and could be dangerous. 

We ended up at a place called Farmer Brown for dinner. Soul food. Started with jalapeno biscuits and an apple jack. I then remembered that I'm not much of a bourbon drinker...oh well. 
 Fried chicken, mac n cheese, and greens. Pretty darn good. 

We ended up at blue bottle coffee again for breakfast... But for lunch we went to a place called Cha Cha Cha on Haight st. It was a cool funky place. My friend told me about it and said we must get some sangria. I didn't argue. I'm a big sangria fan. 
 Fried plantains with beans as our tapa 
 And a Cuban sandwich to share which came with plantain fries. yum!

I love trying new restaurants and finding the places that locals like to eat. It's a passion of mine. I travel through my stomach. =) 

I wish I left all those calories in SF... sad to say they came home with me and I will be working out lots this week. ha! 



Oh it's Friday again. Thank God! I wish weekends lasted longer and came quicker. Anyone else? I'm really looking forward to this weekend because Anthony and I are spending it in San Francisco. We are celebrating our 5 year anniversary of togetherness. I asked Anthony what he wanted to do while there... he simply said "let's just get lost". Isn't that cute? I think it's a good idea... as long as good food is involved in that. =) 

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! xoxo

A few pictures of our weekend there last October....PS- October is the best month to visit SF... Shhh..
