left my heart in san francisco

this past weekend, I ate my body weight in mini cupcakes,

consumed what could have quite possibly been the most perfect pumpkin scone on the face of the earth…

drank way too much coffee…

drank way too much wine…

drank not enough water…

wore the same outfit twice…

overcame my fear of lamb chops (the food, not the tv-show….that still haunts me)…

and made tons of new friends!

I can’t wait till next year.

    I’m with you on the mini cupcakes! I lost count. They were SO good. It felt good to get back to bootcamp class this morning…..hopefully I’ll shed the 3 pounds I’ve gained over the last few days in San Francisco. Have a fabulous day:)

    I only managed to find my way to two of those delicious mini cupcakes! Alas, I got sidetracked by a rather generous pour or two of double daddy IPA . . .

    What a fun album! I was supposed to go to Foodbuzz, but I had friends in town. It looks like you had so much fun. I love the pics of you girls on the picnic table with all the leaves around you. Beautiful. That last pic is hilarious. Matt’s face is priceless.

    Looks like a fabulous weekend…we (my boyfriend and I) were in SF this weekend too…If you haven’t been to Gamine french bistrot on Union yet, you need to go. Roasted Beet and Green Bean Salad, Marinated Grilled Lamb Loin, Berries and Creme Fraiche Crepe….All. So. Good. And then I may or may not have had a mini shopping spree in the nearby Lululemon shop…..oops. Too much Sancerre, perhaps?

    A nice re-cap. I’ve enjoyed your’s and Mama Pea’s recap the most (no disrespect to other bloggers, but your two brief re-caps were lovely). I am laughing at how you seem to do something funny with your face in your photos. Trying to be cute! It must be a camera pose!

    Your pictures are awesome! I was there and saw you having a great time. What a wonderful experience for everyone!

    It’s cool how it was pretty “local” for you….no airport travel involved which is just always a huge bonus in my book! At least I only had to fly up from San Diego.

    Beautiful pics, and enjoy your week even tho less mini cupcakes may be involved…haha!

    I know I should comment on the beautiful photos or the description of the food, but what I really want to say is: I totally forgot about Lamb Chop the show until this post. I will now have “this is the song that never ends” stuck in my head forever.
