The Weekend

Warning - picture heavy post! YAY!

Nick and I had a weekend that makes me really happy and satisfied! (Though as usual, I didn't take nearly enough pictures, even if you think this post shows otherwise)

Friday night - Nick and I headed out into the typically chilly weather of San Francisco and walked down to In and Out which is almost a mile and 1/2 away. Along the way, we were walking down a steep hill when Nick decided that it would be a cool picture. He held the camera at the same angle as the street so it looks like I'm leaning backwards. You can't actually tell how steep it is - but if the cars are parked at 90 degrees on a hill - it is super steep!

Then I stole the camera and took one of the boy to kind of show the angle. I don't know. It was Friday after work - that's my only excuse!

All that walking and silly picture taking really worked up our appetites so we each had burger and fries and split a milkshake. Way too many calories but I pretended that the calcium in the milkshake made up for the fat that I ingested.

I'm pretty sure there was some drug in that delicious cup of ice cream because we couldn't stop laughing for 20 minutes and therefore stepped into the street when the light was still red and almost got run over by a car... Well it was a good story to us anyway...
Then went to have coffee in North Beach (which is like a Little Italy for you non-San Francisco people) at our favorite place, Stella Pastry.

Saturday - We wandered down to our favorite cheap sushi joint. On the way, I finally remembered to take a picture of an interesting Nob Hill institution - these lovely ladies.

Creepy, I know. Then we walked back up the hill to Grace Cathedral since we lived 4 blocks from it for 9 months but haven't been in there yet!

We gangsta.

Well, we are something all right.

Then we headed off to a friend's engagement party at her parents which was a lot of fun. I only took 3 pictures total there and two require me to burn your eyes out after you see them (I don't have a double chin in real life! I swear!). So here is one of her parent's pretty tree which matched her fiancee's shirt.Sunday - picked up my favorite relocated East Coasters and went to Napa for a drunken good ole' time
I'm trying to remember what we were all "discussing" here,
though I'm sure I agreed with Bethro.Well that's all folks. Just a million pictures and lots of words!

Oh man! Great pictures. I clearly believed very strongly in whatever I was saying - probably loudly.

I love those weird angle pics. You guys are clearly gangsta, with your wallpaper or whatever Nick is holding,

Fun weekend! I need a boyfriend so I can have a drunken good time with my favorite east coast couples. But that won't happen before you move, soooo I guess I'm out of luck. lol. And I'm happy to at least work in the same city you live in...maybe I can see you more? Please, pretty please. :)

I've heard rumours about In and Out burgers - everyone I know who has been to the States raves about them....

Your post has rekindled a serious want to visit San Fran - it's high up there on my world tour list!

Napa valley, I am so choked, it's probably totally not raining there...and there is good wine. For all that you hear, Spain does not have the greatest wine, they seem to only serve Rioja.
