Urban Girl Almanac

Urban Girl Almanac

A bit of bar hopping, a four hour work-out, an expensive dress; it has been another San Francisco week for the record books. Here are the lessons I learned this week:

  • A few days of sun makes a world of difference. The city is so much nicer when it is not raining!
  • When a new dress hanging up in your closet makes you smile by just looking at it, it was probably a smart purchase.
  • Cheap Chinese take-out is lovely for a Monday night.
  • A four hour workout involving yoga, rock climbing and cardio may seem like a good idea…but really, it is overkill. The resulting soreness will make you consider canceling your gym membership immediately.
  • Lucca’s Ravioli alone is a great reason to live in San Francisco.
  • The Stanyan Park Hotel and Inn 1890 are two good hotel options in my neighborhood for visiting parents.
  • Sunglasses! Remember those things?
  • Always accept invitations. Even when you really don’t want to go out.
  • I want to move in to the Macy’s downtown now that it is decorated for the Flower Show.
  • Wear flat shoes when you go to three bars in one night.
  • Getting a new camera phone is a good thing.
  • Reading the New Yorker on the bus may cause you to miss your stop by about five blocks.

Rob and I don’t have any plans for the weekend at this point. I want to visit Macy’s downtown and maybe try this Greek restaurant. Opa! Have a great weekend!

    Always accept invitations?? Except to awesome ski weekend trips to private cabins in Alpine? Hmm, I see how it is…

    Hey! I don’t even ski and I accepted the invite! Rob has some political volunteering to do on Saturday unfortunately.

    political volunteering, albeit a great idea, is a bit of a useless task here, isn’t it.. i mean, we don’t get much more blue!

    It’s actually for a campaign in San Diego…a much closer race I’m sure!
