Over the weekend, Husband and I took a trip to De Young to see the latest exhibit featuring the jewels of Bvlgari. Needless to say- wow. Elizabeth Taylor's collection in particular was stunning. Yet another perk of this great city- a bling exhibit.


Domestic Ramblings- Flawless Hips

Me: Do you notice whenever the dance move [on Xbox] involves your hips you always get a flawless rating?

Husband: Don't mock the husband, it's not my fault I can rock my hips.


Circus Holidays

Themed parties are often questionable, but this year's holiday party theme of a circus was quite tastefully done. Circus fun without the clowns. Because that would be terrifying.


Superman House

While on a recent trip, Husband and I took a drive to see the Superman house, the place where Jerry Siegel conceived the idea of one of the greatest superhero legends ever. Imagination in a humble beginning can truly lead to a global phenomenon. Dare to dream.


Cheese Please

What makes a good husband? How about one that makes cheese! Oh husband, you and your homemade ricotta cheese spoil me. :-) I'm not complaining.


Domestic Ramblings- It's Simple

Husband: It's simple. There are only 2 things that need to work. My running shoes and my marriage.

Wife: Asics and the Catholic Church would be so proud.

Bright and New

The new span of the bridge is bright and beautiful. A nice welcome into the city.


Taco Surprise

Nothing says 'surprise!' more than a few dozen friends, unlimited drinks and tacos made to order. Happy Birthday to my no-nonsense gal pal!


Sunny Sushi

Tucked in a side street next to the train station is our new favorite sushi restaurant. And apparently half the city knew about it before us! It looks very nondescript on the outside but the inside is packed with regulars and authentic Japanese fare. Oh Sunny Sushi, you have just made 2 new regular customers.


Grilled Cheese Cake (with Bacon)

Make no mistake, you eat this and you're a gonner. But what a way to go....

Cal Academy of Science

Who knew that one of the hottest places in the city would be the Cal Academy of Science? I've never seen quite so many people dressed up at a museum, although this would be the museum for such extravagance. With a dj, pop up bar and a new exhibition on earthquakes, the Cal Academy of Science has made learning even more fun.




A few cold nights won't stop the quest for the best ice cream the city has to offer. Here's to honey lavender, salted caramel and the best family.



Empty beach and a beautiful day. What more could a family want?



Husband and I took a culinary adventure to Mingalaba for some long dreamt after burmese food. Small establishment with all the favorite dishes. Hello indeed, and thank you very much!


Olive & Vine

Nestled in Glenn Ellen, in a complex of restaurants, is Olive & Vine. It practically screams posh with its high ceilings, modern open kitchen and collection of wine. Husband and I partook in a couples dinner with some shared plates and a bottle of amazing wine. I am usually not a huge fan of pinot but the Emeritus was shockingly balanced and smooth. Cheers to good food, good drinks and good friends.


Forever Young

In my dream house, I would have this instead of a dining table. Who needs to eat when one can dominate at air hockey! 


Thanksgiving Bacon

Bacon can make even an entire holiday dedicated to food better:  Bacon For Thanksgiving


As part of our wine country weekend, we paid a visit to Ledson Winery and their beautiful grounds. Wide variety, not sold in stores, great for pictures; skip the Pinot, and take note that they don't deduct tasting fee even if you buy a bottle.
