I had an amazing time in SF catching up with my girls this weekend (who hasn’t moved down there??). When compared to past visits, I thought this weekend would be relatively “low key” and reflective of life in my late-twenties: good meals, girl talk and early nights.
Well, if this weekend proved anything, it’s that these trips will always center around shenanigans, despite how old we may feel. Saturday night was painful after an afternoon full of wine and sun, but the memories were well worth it :)
SF Squad. Jen, Jaimie, Emily, Erin and Kristy.
Thank you Wifey for letting me be your roomie like old times.
Me and Emily before our Chinese foot massages – a SF trip necessity with my girl Jaimie.
Thai for dinner.
An assortment of dumplings and seafood “balls.”
Delicious Dim Sum – another SF trip tradition with Jaimie.
Fort Mason Park picnic.
Pho at Mau.
Organic Strawberry Lemon Sorbet.
The Corner Cafe on First Hill Seattle is a completely underrated neighborhood spot for breakfast. The spacious cafe sits on the “corner” across from the historic Sorento Hotel, joining Madison St. and Terry Ave. Based on photos from the Owner/Chef geotagged on Instagram, it’s apparent that they take pride in their food and service to patrons. If you’re ever in the area, you know what to do.
Custom omelet with broccoli and spinach (my favorite combination) and a side of sausage patty. Guilty pleasure.
Look at this gorgeous spread.
Torie hosted a beautiful Bridal Shower for Steph on Sunday, and it was the perfect afternoon of catching up, reminiscing and day dreaming of what’s to come for the Bride and Groom. Cheers to you, Steph! I can’t wait for the big day!
Thank you, Steph, for the photo assist :) And thank you, Torie, for the beautiful event!
How stunning is this salad from The Carlile Room?
Delicious salsa verde and wine with my girl Heidi. @ Barrio.
Sushiland in Queen Anne.
Cold sesame noodles with chicken and cucumber.
Rotisserie chicken and greens.
Dinner at Seven Star Peppers.
Breakfast at Cherry Street Coffee house. Their Falafel Salad is my all time favorite for a quick lunch or a healthy breakfast. Salad for breakfast? Yep.
My favorite Chinese vegetable is Kong Xin Cai (“empty heart” vegetable due to it’s hollow stems). Malay Satay makes a great dish with shrimp paste and garlic.
