I am the happiest girl on earth. I came back from an unbelievably fun and relaxing vacation. We just celebrated our 3-month anniversary. This Monday morning while I was in the shower, Dean said “That was a really fun weekend.”
After work on Friday, we both met up with friends for happy hour at Ducca. We feel so lucky to live and work in San Francisco. Dean’s Indian friends were there. My high school friends were there. We had a full night of drinking, then dining at Tropisueno. The food was tasty and filling, and surprisingly inexpensive for a Yerba Buena restaurant.
We left the city on Saturday for hiking which I mentioned in the previous post. We made it a Neflix night and watched Pixar’s super cute Up. Adorable! Topped it off with a bottle of Ridge wine which is one of my faves.
Sunday we headed to my childhood stomping grounds. Walked into the very popular Little House Cafe to find one of my co-workers cooking. Yes, cooking! We used to work in the same group, but I hadn’t seen him in over a year. When I saw him at the restaurant, I figured he’d made a major career switch into being a chef. No! He still works at my company full-time, then works at the cafe on Saturdays and Sundays. What a rockstar! He is living out his dream and still maintaining a good career. Some people truly amaze me.
Mass at St. Joe’s, followed by a quick browse around my high school which completed a multi-million dollar renovation, then to a one-year-old birthday party which ironically was like a mini St. Joe’s reunion, then down time with my parents so my dad could wash my Burning Man dust-filled car. The poor man had to wash my car three times! My dad is awesome.
We ended the weekend with a celebratory dinner at Wayfare Tavern which is one of my top two favorite dining spots in the city. The pastry chef even decorated our pineapple upside down cake with chocolate handwriting, ‘Happy Anniversary!’ Life is very good.
