Since I work at a bar right now my "weekend" is Sunday-Monday.  This weekend I went to visit my little sister up in SB.  She lives right on the ocean (has to live with 12 other girls in the tiny place to afford it) but still, its just amazing every time I visit.  We went to sleep listening to the waves crash and we woke up to this view in the morning.

On Monday we met my older sister at Universal Studios for Grinchmas.  My whole family is very enthusiastic about Christmas so we pretty much love Grinchmas.

I just first want to point out how awesome my shirt is...Christmas Walrus, yes.

Sister time!

"Okay now look more bad ass..."

The Grinch and the Who's perform during the tram tour.

It's snowing in Southern California ?!
No, those are bubbles. 

I hope you all are feeling a little bit more festive after that post, I know I sure am.


My Heart Goes Out

I wanted to post today for "Feel Good Fridays" but my head and heart just keeps going back to the Connecticut shooting.  I don't have children but I can't help but be unbelievably saddened by this event.  My prayers and thoughts go out to the parents and relatives of the children and adults whose lives were stolen today.  I'm just truly so sorry.

Let us all hug our loved ones extra tight today.


A Whole Lotta Nutcracker

Little nutcrackers everywhere.  I don't know why but it feels like nothing bad can happen when these little guys and a Christmas tree is lit in the living room.  This is my favorite time of year and I'm trying to soak up every minute of it.  We decorated the house and the tree yesterday, along with a peppermint mocha and Christmas music.  I love that this season involves a lot of getting together and just enjoying the time.

But also happy 4th night of Hanakkuh!

'Tis the season!


San Francisco Photo Dump

This was my Saturday afternoon/night in San Francisco.  There is just so much to do in the city, and so many sites to see, I just fell in love.

The Boy in front of his new place 

The Boy's neighborhood--the Mission District 

Philz Coffee, a local favorite 

Sake bombing and sushi.

Jonathan's Holiday party at The Winery

Then post-party drinks at Kell's with my college roommate Audrey

Goodnight SF


This weekend.

I had the most wonderful weekend in San Francisco.  There is just so much to do and see in the city.  A random Sunday turns into an exciting and interesting adventure.  And not to mention, being able to spend more than a day with my boyfriend was a blessing in itself.  I took so many pictures I'll have to narrow down what I post.  If only all weekends could be like this last one.
