How dare I go on a vacay and not properly document it on my bloggity blog? What has gotten into me to forget such a crucial detail. We were in SanFran way back in March, for a few days. It was the perfect mix of Relaxation, touristy stuff and catching up with old friends.
side note: who the heck knew I had some many friends out in California? not me!
When we arrived in SF, my dad took me shopping in which I picked up my little Tory purse. I know I sound like a spoiled brat right about now...but let me assure you that he hasn't gifted me or even called to wish me HBD on a single birthday in the past 10 years. So this was HUGE.
After shopping, we headed across town to meet up with my Longtime BFF for the best pizza I've ever had in my life. I had no clue about the amazing pizza hotspot that is San Francisco, but holy amazingness. Exhausted from the cross country flight, we called it an early night and set off to grab some shut-eye before Wine Country (aka my Homeland)
We started out the day with a delicious breakfast at the Fremont Diner and then visiting three beautiful wineries. Take.me.back.now!
Friday was my day of birth and I celebrated with Wendy and her workplace.
Yup, the good Ol' Googleplex. It was everything I dreamed up. It really was. People bowling, drinking, playing basketball and most of all eating. It was heaven in the form of a workplace.
On Saturday, we meet up with Mrs. 5ohWifey and enjoyed the amazing Farmer's Market with some coffee and lunch on the pier. They were so nice to take us around Saturday and Ashley was SO KIND to wipe the bird poop off Jason as I was laughing too much to function. I miss you guys so much already!
We wrapped up Saturday with the a stop at Giradellli and a night tour of Alcatraz. Which I HIGHLY recommend. The views from "The Rock" are magical and the history of the prison is just so awesome.
On our last day on the west coast, Wendy was so kind to take us on her little personal tour of the city. Including the Full house painted ladies, Mrs. Doubtfire house, The palace of fine arts, taking us to dip our feet in the Pacific ocean and so much more.
We had an amazing time and can't wait to go on our next adventure.
