Long weekends are the best – it’s funny how just one more day makes such a difference. That one extra day makes me feel like I have so much more time – more time to jam in more activities. We have some apartments to see (yep still looking), some birthday parties to go to, a new museum and restaurant to try and a trip to Great America – that’s right, I’m a child and I love funnel cake and roller coasters.
I made chicken gyros (protein style) on Monday for dinner and they were so tastey I made them again last night. I am on a Greek kick these days and cannot get enough tzatziki, I want to put it on everything.
For the non-SF natives – this past Sunday was Bay to Breakers. And my explanation will not do it justice, because its the best day of the year – but it’s a race in the city from the Bay (the Ferry Building) to the breakers (Ocean Beach). Its about 7 miles and everyone dresses up (or not – many people wear their birthday suits) and walks along the race route. Our theme this year was “garden,” so naturally I spent way too much money and time making something elaborate – bird wings (mini tutorial on those to come).
This building is the gift shop for the Contemporary Jewish Art Museum. I love how it hides in a little alley between big brick buildings.
I bought something outrageous this week – a jumpsuit -( more on that to come) but while I was perusing Anthropologie and wishing I could buy more things, I came across this shift dress. The pattern is so bright and vibrant but not overbearing.
