Urban girl almanac: Off to Mendocino

Urban girl almanac: Off to Mendocino

Rob and I leave tonight for our camping and horseback riding weekend in Mendocino. I’m excited to explore this unfamiliar part of the coast and to get in some relaxation. In the meantime, let’s go over the lessons I learned this week:

  • It’s no fun being sick, but it is a good opportunity to catch up on your reality TV.
  • Nick’s Crispy Tacos doesn’t have any “Taco Tuesday” specials.
  • Amanda Bynes is funny and cute.
  • Momo’s is fun for lunch, especially on a game day. The macaroni and cheese is totally worth $14.
  • It’s amazing how fast five years goes by when you are with the right person.
  • White nectarines are fun to cook to with.
  • Project Runway kind of jumped the shark by making the “kicking off” so anti-climatic.
  • Its hard to win at kickball when some of your teammates are new and have no clue what is going on.
  • Everyone should keep their fingers crossed for Nicole’s job interview.
  • Apparently all that driving is making my family a little nuts. Exhibit a and exhibit b.
  • You’ll never wait alone in front of a San Francisco restaurant.
  • Cha-Ya’s curry noodles are super yummy.
  • Hooray for Nordstrom Rack!

It looks like there is going be pretty nice weather in the city the next few days! Have a good weekend!

    happy weekend!

    i was making my list of things i must buy/do/eat (mmm In n out) on my next trip to California, and it made me think, you should let me know if there is any little French thing I could bring for you (since I’ll be in San Fran for 2 nights), chocolate perhaps?

    love Mendocino.
    From Illinois so that part of California is like God’s country to my husband and I.

    Ooo! Anything French sounds fun to me! When are you coming to SF?

    we fly in to SFO on Friday the 6th of October (so I’m a bit of an early planner with my list :).
    We are staying 2 nights with my good friend who lives on the 1500 block of Filbert street, and then its onto Davis.
    The San Francisco time is sure to include lots of shopping while my friends boyfriend spends hours explaning baseball and football to my husband (who doesn’t really know how these American sports work).
