Happy hump day everyone! These are the last few weeks of school and everything has been super busy. That doesn't mean I don't have time for fun... just less time to write! It can often be difficult to write for fun when you have to write so much for school. Such a bummer! Anyway, I have a few recaps of fun things I did last week and this past weekend. Hopefully you'll be inspired!
Wednesday, I met Steven at a bar to watch the Kings v. Sharks game after I attended a Guns, Delts & Abs workout at Rouge & Saint. The workout was intense! This one is always difficult for me because it involves running, but this week, it was extra hard! Maybe I was extra tired? After class we met at Giordano Bros in the Mission. I got this beauty of a sandwich. French fries on a sandwich? Yes, please!
On Thursday, I attended a meet up with some lovely ladies. The meet up was hosted at my friend Julia's house and it was a wine & cheese party. Every attendee brought a different kind of cheese. Man, what a spread! SO MUCH CHEESE. It was basically heaven.
After not doing much on Friday night, I was ready to party on Saturday! Well not so much party... more like brunch. Or in this case, a workout plus 6 hour brunch festival. Adrienne and I hit up a BodyRok Pilates class in the mission on Saturday at 11am. It was not my favorite class ever, but I was sore the next day. Must have worked on something? Ha! After, we headed over to El Techo (Lolinda's rooftop). We of course got the guacamole and then split a quesadilla. The food was great, but everyone knows you go here for the ambiance! It was a beautiful, clear day, so we got great views of the city. We also both tried the mimosa of the day - watermelon. It was good, but after, I switched to straight champagne. ;-)
After such a fun day on Saturday, it was early to bed for me! Sunday, I woke up early and attended a meeting on campus for school. After the meeting, I headed over to Golden Gate Park to meet Marissa at the De Young Museum. We went to see the Oscar de la Renta exhibit that is currently on display there. While I thought the tickets were a bit pricey, everything was absolutely beautiful and they had lot of pieces on display. I loved how they had both new and old designs too. It was so cool to see his progression and phases that he went through as a designer.
We were both starving after the tour, so we headed towards Hecho on market. We had more (or I had more) Mexican food (guacamole again!) We ended our evening with a few more drinks at Churchill. They have happy hour on Sunday afternoon from 2-6pm. Win!
Hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!
Hope everyone had nice weekend or in my case a nice LONG weekend. :-) Here's a quick recap on what I was up to this weekend.
I actually woke up bright and early and went to a workout class at BodyRok down in the mission. BodyRok is a machine based Pilates class that lasts 40 minutes. While that may not seem like a long workout... it is killer! I woke up very sore on Saturday. They had the music bumping, so it was a nice, fun way to wake up on my day off. When I got home I rewarded myself with a latte. YUM. I firmly believe that we should only have 4 day work weeks. Having Friday off was amazing!
Later that day, I went down to Palo Alto to see my friend Marissa and watch Carolina play at Old Pro. (I also watched the game on Sunday.) And yay, we are on our way to the final four! Unfortunately, we took NO photos. How unlike us. :-(
Saturday was a very lazy day during the day. Steven had his friend visiting, so I finally convinced them to head out to a beer garden with me. The weather was gorgeous! We walked over to Valley Tavern in Noe Valley. Noe has VERY few bars, but this one has a lovely outdoor patio. They also have trivia there on some week nights!
Saturday night we headed over to Brewcade along Market Street. I guess it's technically in Duboce Triangle. That area of Market is very confusing! Photos are blurry, but inside they have TONS of arcade games. They also have a projector which either plays a movie (the Exorcist last Saturday AHHH) or they have mario cart games set up. FYI- They only have wine and beer, but they have a large beer selection. They also have wine slushies called "Grape Drank". That sounds cute, but it tastes sickeningly sweet to me.
At about 10pm, Adrienne and I said goodbye to everyone and headed to Rickshaw Stop (AGAIN I KNOW) for a 90's party! I think you may be sensing a trend? The party wasn't too crowded which was good since Rickshaw only has 2 bathroom stalls for ladies. Who does this?! The first DJ was AWFUL. The second DJ made up for the first, but he only played for an hour, so it was kind of a bummer. There were some great 90's hits played during that hour though! I would most definitely see the second DJ again.
Sunday was a recovery day in our house. Everyone was a bit over-served on Saturday night. Whoops! I did manage to volunteer, so I feel somewhat accomplished.
Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday! Did you do anything exciting (or relaxing) over the weekend?
