I left my heart...

San Francisco was AMAZING. Seriously, Im obsessed.
I've been a few times but really all I remember is great shopping and cold weather.
This trip definitely lived up to the shopping part, and maybe a little of the cold weather. It's okay, at least the days we were there were so sunny and beautiful and perfect!
SF is such a fun, unique city. My grammy grew up in the Bay Area so my dad loves going there and introducing us to his old memories. One thing passed down from my grammy's dad is a love for the San Francisco Giants. My dad can remember him listening to the games on the radio. My grammy was a huge fan. Last year when they won the World Series, my dad and brothers practically cried, they were so excited. Now it's pretty obvious that I'm a sports girl, but baseball just never did it for me. Something about the fact that you can be 40 and fat and in terrible shape but still a professional athlete just bothered me? I don't know, point is, I was never a baseball girl.
Until this trip!

To say I fell in love with AT&T Park is an understatement. Let's just say I only took 6 pictures this entire trip, and they were all of the ballpark. It is GORGEOUS. It sits right on the edge of the bay and is just the perfect backdrop for any sporting event. The night was freezing. They ran out of snuggies on snuggie night. I only had a small jacket. It didn't even matter! The fans are amazing, they had warm gooey caramel popcorn, and we had the most perfect seats. The Giants beat the A's in extra innings and it was thrilling! And we got to see The Beard pitch the 9th inning. And I fell in love with Buster Posey (except he just injured himself and is out for the season... sad face). LOVED.
I'm officially a baseball convert!

Don't worry, we did other things too. Rode all over San Fran, did lots and lots of shopping, ate delicious food including the best tri-tip sandwich I've ever had in my life, explored Pier 39 and even saw this really cool magic show in a creepy basement theater with a room full of indians. IT WAS FABULOUS!
Can we go back yet?

i never know what to title these.

My birthday is coming up. If anyone would like a gift idea, I would really love some basic black Tory Burch flats, please. That is, if you really love me, because those babies are expensive!
And I'm going to San Francisco this weekend! I'm soooo thrilled. Killer shopping, Giants game, delicious food, and did I mention the amazing shopping? Can't. Wait. If anyone has any suggestions of things to do, I would love some!
Have I mentioned that I love anything with sprinkles? Extra sprinkles on my ice cream. Sprinkle donuts. Cupcakes are even better with sprinkles. I'm 5, I know, it's embarrassing.
I may have a new job opportunity coming up and I'm SUPER excited about it! Stay tuned!
I miss all my BFFs. We never seem to be in the same place at the same time. I finally got to catch up with my Sammy! Love that girl, she gets me.
I'm taking a science class this summer. Good news: it's only 3 weeks long. Bad news: it's every morning, there's a quiz everyday, and a huge exam on fridays. Wish me luck.
I've recently become enthralled with all things Housewives. Bev Hills was my favorite, then I discovered NY and I'm obsessed, except I'm sad Bethanny left. Orange County is sometimes okay. I've only watched a few NJ and I still can't decide if I like them. I refuse to watch Atlanta.
And I am 7 episodes behind on greys and I desperately need to catch up. Blame Real Housewives marathons for that.
I know it sounds like all I do is watch TV and eat, but I do still work, too. Nike is fun but too small at the moment. I brought my coworker his first Pizookie for his birthday and got everyone addicted. We all loved it.
Only 1 month till my court court gets home! And 6 months till Ally comes home! Yay for returning friends!
And the weirdest thing is all my little sister's friends getting engaged. That will never seem normal.
Now I must go watch the season finale of Gossip Girl.
