down by the river.

wow this is the first outfit post that has gone up in a really long time. i’m gonna have to do something about that! i’ve decided i’m going to try to be less lazy about it. that will require me to wear something other than overalls (it’s gotten a bit out of hand), bust out my tripod, and/or annoy my friends by asking them to snap the photos (thanks for taking these rachel and amy). anyway, i found this dress while digging through the clearance section at target one summer afternoon. but given the fact that it’s generally cold in sf during the summer i couldn’t really wear it until recently.  i decided it would be the perfect dress for ryan and eddie’s wedding (congrats, boys!). they had the coolest wedding at the russian river. a bunch of us stayed a few days and made a vacation out of it. we all really needed it. ah, i can’t wait to go back.

outside lands.

my friend rachel and i went to outside lands a couple of weeks back. rachel was given a vip wristband and i used my friend’s ticket… woo woo! rachel and i had an awesome time hanging out, eating a bunch, and meeting new people. i have to admit that i wasn’t the hugest fan of most of the bands that played, but i still danced around anyway. it was sort of a bro fest when red hot chili peppers went on and i was hoping that they would play more from the blood, sugar, sex, magik album (the only album i really like). they still sounded good live, offered up some 90’s nostalgia (i’m obsessed with the 90’s as of late), and we got in for FREE so i can’t complain. rachel and i had so much fun together (thanks, rach!!). all in all, it was a memorable adventure!

local kitchen & wine merchant.

i’m big on birthdays. last year i kinda went over the top celebrating my birth with two dinners and a brunch. so when my dear friend anne’s birthday rolled around and she said she wasn’t doing anything, i wasn’t having it.  i planned a little birthday dinner for her at local kitchen & wine merchant in soma. it was the perfect gathering of friends, the food was delish, and most importantly, the birthday girl had a lovely time. oh, and i tried the local hound (a ketel one and grapefruit concoction). best cocktail ever, y’all!

contemporary jewish museum.

ah, i had the best saturday afternoon. i headed to the contemporary jewish museum where i checked out the allen ginsberg beat memories exhibit and grabbed lunch at wise sons jewish delicatessen. so good! it was the perfect way to spend my saturday afternoon. later in the evening, i met up with my bestie amy for drinks at foreign cinema and then we enjoyed a nice dinner at radish. we spoiled ourselves for the evening.

now i gotta start getting ready for tomorrow… the first day of school. this is my seventh year and i still get a little anxious about the first day. haha. wish me luck!

it’s been a bit since my last post. i’ve been so lazy when it comes to blogging lately. anyway, these photos were shot at the legion of honor- such a beautiful museum. i plan on hitting a few museums before heading back to work in a couple of weeks. hopefully i will get some posts out of my visits. till next time, ta ta!
