An ongoing love affaire with all things fashionable, tasty and fun

Oh San Francisco

This past weekend was both relaxing and luxurious,¬†beginning perfectly with a little light shopping Friday afternoon before the boyfriend came back into San Francisco. ūüôā

Saturday morning started with our favorite new ritual –¬†a long walk to the Ferry Building for the Farmer’s Market to pick up fruits¬†and veggies,¬†and to eat our body weight in organic, local foods before slowly walking back to North Beach.

Including some tasty treats from my new obsession at the Farmers Market,  Black Jet Baking Company. Their vegan cranberry sticky buns are absolutely divine!

Oh, and picking up¬† new¬†additions to our household.¬†ūüôā Meet¬†Tofu the pig!

Then we –¬†ohmygosh I can hardly write the words – FINISHED DECORATING THE LIVING ROOM. Furniture assembled? Check. Art¬†on the¬†walls?¬†Check. Furniture rearranged and carpet moved? Check. And you want to know what? It looks even better than I’d hoped.

The rest of Saturday included some writing, a quick trip to our corner pub for a glass of red wine, the grocery store and snacking while we fought over the remote.

Sunday was another gorgeous day and included another¬†long walk, time time¬†to the Marina to pick up a print that we ordered¬†for the bedroom, a yummy brunch at Cafe Des Amis¬†where I discovered my adorable friend Jael works, an impromptu stroll through Pier 39 to smell the AMAZING smells (candy, fudge, ice cream, waffle cones, chocolate, donuts…) and to see the Sea Lions that I can hear from my apartment in the mornings. Finally, what better way to end¬†the weekend than cuddling on the couch watching the World’s Strongest Man competition?

Nope, no Superbowl for us. ūüôā

How was your weekend? Did you watch the game?
