I Went to San Francisco, and All I Got Was Some Food...

So last week at this time, I was celebrating at a wonderful wedding... and this weekend, I'm studying. If by "studying" you mean watching the Scrubs marathon on Comedy Central...

Last Thursday, my parents treated me to dinner at one of my favoritest restaurants ... I've been going once a year since I was a few years old, and since it hasn't changed at all since, ummm, it was "remodeled" in 1956 or something, it's always exactly as I remember. And the crab louis salad? A huge pile of crab with dressing on it? YUMMERS.

The eating continued the next morning, when I had a breakfast of sourdough bread (the REAL stuff, not the crappy fake stuff we get on the east coast), and hot chocolate. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

Later that day, we grabbed the best hamburgers ever at Nations... although in all honesty, I have to admit to being a tad bit biased (more on that later!) I even got to spend the day with my friend Jesse from college - it had been way WAY too long since I'd seen him last!

The next day, while we were helping with a few last minute wedding details, we saw this guy sitting on the fence of a house in the neighborhood... he was beautiful. But I was still slightly confused - what was a peacock doing on the fence of a house?

And later that night, we got to celebrate a wonderful marriage. And remember how I said I was a bit biased about Nations? The bride's father is the president and CEO - he and my dad have been best friends since 4th grade. I'm blessed that Cara, the beautiful bride, and I have been as close as the sisters everyone always thinks we are!

And finally, Sunday saw us back on the plane, heading home.

Check out the amazing weather - not a cloud in sight! I don't think I've ever seen the bay looking as beautiful from the air...

And that lace I was working on on the plane? I cast off just as we landed. Can any of you tell where I might have possibly run out of yarn just a little bit and maybe just kinda failed to match the dye-job? Needless to say, this will be headed to the dye-pot for an overdye... just as soon as I finish watching Scrubs studying.
