I'm just going to repeat what I've been hearing and experiencing for the last week; the weather in NorCal has been...unbelievable. This weekend it was stunningly sunny and warm with temperatures in the low 70's. (I am grateful, I am grateful, I am grateful! Never change, sunny weather!!) A little summary of my weekend via a crappy Blackberry camera...
Friday night my dear friend Andrea and I went for dinner at a favorite SF spot of mine, Fish and Farm. Here we indulged in their token Niman Ranch burgers with a fried egg on top (which get ranked in the top 10 burgers in SF every year!);
The following morning began with a little brunch trip to Judy's down the street from my apartment for a feast of cream cheese-stuffed egg bread French toast topped with fresh strawberries and (a lot of) powdered sugar (good thing I was wearing stretch-able yoga pants, good lord this image is calories o'clock...);
and Dre's *slightly* less unhealthy egg whites omelet;
Mani/pedis were next on the list and I'm pretty excited about this new OPI gel polish line called "gelish" that supposedly lasts 2-3 weeks on hands without chipping! $40 for both the (hopefully) long lasting manicure and a full pedicure; slightly pricier than my normal $20 mani/pedi, but hopefully worth the extra monies in the end. It definitely feels stronger on my nails and I love the fun, cheery pop of red decorating my fingers :)
Sunday morning included bagels on Marina Green, a grassy area in my neighborhood near the bay, where a car drove by us and shouted "Hippie girls!! I love youuuuu....!" much to our admitted delight. Let's be serious, I love an opportunity to throw up the casual peace sign. And yes, those are sailboats behind me;
And now we're enjoying a cozy Superbowl feast of ribs, mini hot dogs in parmesan crusted "blankets", and pizza dip curled up on the couch :)
Pizza dip, introduced to me a few years ago by my bestie, is always a crowd favorite and ridiculously easy to whip up. Mix together cream cheese and oregano as a base layer, then top with pizza sauce and mozzerella cheese. Warm it up in the oven to melt the cheese and enjoy with garlic bagel chips or pita chips. Yumo. For reals.
In Gratitude GALORE for this beautiful weather,
