This morning I am headed to SF for a zippy morning up and back.  So fast!  However, during my flash trip I am really hoping to make it to Tartine Bakery.  I’ve heard about this spot, witnessed the obscene lines, and I’ve even purchased their pastry book as a gift.  However, I have yet to step foot in their doors.  Similar to Magnolia Bakery or Sprinkles Cupcakes, this place attracts lines around the corner.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that on a random Friday morning the lines might be kind to me.  I will update you upon my return!!

Have a fantastic weekend!

In some cases, housesitting can be the pits.  Today though, I am experiencing house sitting at it’s finest.  I have a beautiful ocean view to wake up to, the morning paper to enjoy with breakfast, and I’m only a short walk away from work.  I almost feel like I’m on vacation!   Please excuse me while I get back to my crossword puzzle.  42 across anyone?

I just returned from a weekend filled with food, friends, and art in Los Angeles!  On top of catching up with many of my LA friends, I was able to attend the Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA, catch some street art at Bloomfest in Downtown LA, have game night out at Vodvil, and even included a moments worth of shopping!  All in 2 days… I’m so impressed with myself :).  Thank you friends for having me down for a wonderful weekend!
