About two weeks ago, my mum and I drove up to SF to see an amazing exhibit with our friend Lisa at the Legion of Honor museum. Quite possibly one of my favorite museums, (next to the Met) we were interested in a couture fashion traveling exhibit on loan from the Brooklyn Museum.
The exhibit included ball gowns, day wear, bathing suits, and accessories from major designers (think french couture and some American woman designers) from 1910 to 1980. Everything was beautifully lit, and all the costumers were still in great condition. I had seen some of these items in fashion coffee table books, but it was pretty cool to see some of these iconic pieces in real life.
After a long morning at the museum, we drove to lunch at the Beach Chalet. I had a delicious carbonara pasta with an amazing pomegranate blueberry lemonade.
We had an amazing view of the beach and the water as we ate. I would eat there so often if I lived closer to SF. It is only a 1.5 hour drive up to the city but i don’t go every often, so every time I go it feels like a fun treat!
As much as I love my kiddos, I also realllllyyyy enjoy summer break off. This last year was particularly brutal as I barreled through working full time, night classes to finish up my Master’s, and completing my second year of … Continue reading →

My brother and I start our Thanksgiving week off right, baking a cinnamon coffee cake (a family recipe and total favourite of ours) and working in front of a crackling fire. On Friday, my Dad, Cheech and I drove up … Continue reading →
A week ago Friday, a few of my friends helped me knock off another item on my 101 list. We gathered at my parents house, lit some sparklers and tried to draw out hearts, stars and names. We were moreorless successful, but we also had a lot of fun!
We have another box of sparklers left so we will do them again sometime soon! There was lots of laughing during this photo shoot (that may have hindered our ability to take clear photos!), and it was a great evening overall.
From there we went up to the city and hit up the Starlight Room at the Drake Hotel. Annie’s friend Dereck is a manager there, and always makes us feel so welcomed. This was my second time there and I swear he is ruining all other clubs for me!
I know I had a busy but awesome weekend! How was everyone’s weekend?
Did you get to do some fun things but also take a break?
About two weeks ago my mother and I went up to Candlestick Park for my Color Run. It was my first time running with them, and I had a blast. My mother took the following pictures while I ran the … Continue reading →
