Hello! Hello! …I have been MIA for the past few days, and for good reason; I went home to be with my family before school starts! My sister is expecting her second bundle of joy and well, the bundle decided to ‘drop’ leaving us all on the edge of our seats hoping that he/she will continue to cook for a couple of more weeks!
The doctor said that sure enough, baby has ‘dropped’ but she isn’t dilated yet! Thanks be to God, baby needs to stay in mommy’s tummy for as long as possible! Side-note— She is the most beautiful expantant mother ever! For real. I wouldn’t lie to you! (nope, not biased or anything. She really is that beautiful!)
California! Day 1!
I have also been busy basking in the glory of the vacation with the husband, still beaming from the much needed time away with the husband. I know that I showed you a few of these already, but incase you missed them, I had to add them! I don’t want you to miss this!
Breakfast for the day! Oops! —Wait.
After the Golden Gate Bridge we decided to go to Fisherman’s Wharf since we were already in the city, plus maybe we would get some good food while we were there. We weren’t planning on like the Wharf that much. But, we did! We like to walk around and experience an atmosphere, the Wharf is great for this!
We ate at The Franciscan :
Here’s what I got:
Smoked Salmon Crustini— It was crostini that had smoked salmon, capers, red onion, and avacado; with fresh mozzarella in the middle!
It was delicious! …The waiter was NOT impressed that I got an appetizer for a meal! When I go out to eat, I always have a to-go bag because I can’t eat it all. I am more of a grazer (sometimes from the husband’s plate!) and usually don’t eat large meals but more smaller ones. I didn’t want to spend a whole bunch of money on something I couldn’t eat and couldn’t take home, I just didn’t want to waste a whole bunch of food. Side note- I love that the husband loves me enough to let me have a bite off of EVERY dish he eats. He doesn’t judge me for my weird habbits but just loves me, no questions asked.
We decided that we liked Fisherman’s Wharf and this afternoon would not be enough time….
THEN! We headed to Santa Rosa to our hotel... But before we could settle down for the night, I had to make a pit stop!
Trader Joe’s! ♥
I hadn’t been to a Trader Joe’s since I moved from New York, about 2 years ago! Needless to say: I! WAS! EXCITED!!!!
I needed to pick up a few things for breakfast for the week, supper for the night, and just take it all in. I was one happy girl looking at all of the produce and food that I can’t get back at home! Seriously, SO happy! ... I picked up lavash, peanut butter, bananas, peaches, and wine. And sushi for supper. A $6 meal on vacation, I can live with that! Not that it was amazing but I can’t get it at home and it tasted pretty darn good!!!
We called it a night, we were soooo tired from the day of traveling and jet lag. Day one was great but let me tell you people—-
THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!!
PS- I have had some problems posting this and have written it THREE times, sorry if you get it more than once and for the cruddy writing. I must have used my decent writing on the first two posts that didn’t save!!! I don’t know what is going on!
