Last weekend I made a sweet trip to the Bay Area and got the chance to visit with wonderful friends- the type you can always pick back up with right where you left off. This was my first solo trip since Owen was born and it was super refreshing- though of course I was ready to be reunited with my guys by the end of the long weekend. I would have loved to have Owen play with his buddies so I hope to bring him along next time:)
We did a bit of a food tour of Oakland and Berkley and even hit up some places further out. Tasty Mexican food (of course), an awesome cafeteria style Indian eatery, pizza at The Cheese Board and a diamond in the rough Greek restaurant. Oh and we managed to fit in a trip to Fenton’s Creamery and Ici in one (very decadent) day- none of which I objected to;) We were also forced to visit all sorts of boutiques with beautiful beads, cute clothes and pretty paper.
This was probably also the best weather I’ve ever caught in the Bay Area- 70s and sunny every day!
I saw these stairs on Pinterest and was determined to find them! They were beautiful and the views were even more gorgeous (though I’m told this area is usually socked in with fog). And I have long been wanting to visit Burma Superstar or B Star and finally got to try the fresh and delicious Burmese fare.
We also enjoyed some fun window shopping in the Mission (and took some awesome slices of pie to go), a Ferry Building visit and a walk along the piers with some yummy blue bottle coffee (I had the new orlean’s iced coffee- yum!). The best part by far was just walking along and chatting like old times:)
I also got to see a dear friend from our Brooklyn babies group and see her (not so little any more- look at those chopstick skills) baby!:)
A few days in SF is never enough and a few days with good friends goes by WAY too fast! We had a blast and I am grateful to have gotten a chance to see all these beautiful ladies. May it happen again soon!
ps- My talented friend, Andrea, drew this on her chalk wall for my arrival (so special!)- if you want to check out her work head over here.
