It is one of the softest and coziest cardigan I've seen in a while! It probably doesn't hurt that it is also cashmere. I might wait for it to get marked down again before it gets added to my cardigan rotation.

I forgot to take pictures of the bengiets before we attacked it, better luck next time I guess.

The atmosphere in there is so cozy. There's candles all over the wall and big cushy booths to sit in. Service is great and the food was resonably priced with huge portions (even during the restaurant week promotion). I had the fried chicken gumbo, fresh pasta with pine nuts/chanterelles/sage and white chocolate bread pudding. Sorry for the lack of food pictures, it was dark in there :) Definitely be prepared for the breakfast happy hour pictures!

I had enough batter to make 3 mini loafs. I bet they would be great muffin sized too! I can't wait to taste test it tomorrow.

Although at times, it makes me feel like I'm 5, it sure beats the same hairstyle every single day!

But who has the money to spend $900 on trendy boots?! Luckily, Steve Madden already has a k/o for a fraction of the price.

I could spend hours and hours in Powells. I can't imagine how much money I can spend there! This was only after about 45 mins of browsing. I had to put a few books back and email myself the titles so I can borrow them from the library. I never really wanted to read Eat, Pray, Love but the movie trailer made it seem pretty interesting. Everything else I brought based on the back and I hate to admit, on the cover. I miss reading!

It only gets rowdier and rowdier as the night goes on. It's a great way to just chill with friends on a Tuesday night.

Mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty as the original recipe, so I am posting her picture.
It's a little tedious to make but so worth the time. Even the cake by itself is worth the extra dishes it takes to separately whip up the egg whites. I can't wait to make this cake again!
Now before y'all judge me, there is a backstory to why I went to see The A-Team. Remember a while ago when I went to Vancouver and we accidentally walked on to the set? Well, they didn't let us cross the street so we weren't really "on" the set. I had to watch the movie to see what they were doing in that specific scene! It actually wasn't all that bad. Definitely action packed and who can really complain about Bradley Cooper right?

It doesn't really look like much, does it? If you pull up on the part that's sticking up....
and the camera pops out!
It's an SX-70 model if anyone is curious and the tab part that you pull on is the view finder. The fun thing about the camera is you have to manually focus and you get to see your images right away!

or I can go back to using my timbuk2 bag that I used for school. Practical but not nearly as cute.

Started off the trip with dimsum in Chinatown.
It took us a while to find the official gate of Chinatown.
Followed it up with ice cream from Ghirardelli's though we were not the least bit hungry. I could have easily shared the sundae but for some reason it didn't occur to us to split one.
Then dinner that night, we went to the burger bar of Hubert Keller fame. It was super tasty and they had sweet potato fries! Luckily, the next day we planned a lengthy bike ride to burn off all the calories.
We were warned that the bike route we were going to take wasn't easy and the guy who got our bikes ready questioned us to make sure we really knew what we were getting ourselves into. Apparently, no map of SF is drawn to scale and it's TRUE. At least it was gorgeous out and the views were amazing.
We thought we biked 20 miles (that's what the map said) but in reality it was close to 17. I still like to say 20 miles because it sure felt that way with all the hills. We ended the night with a night tour of Alcatraz.
They opened up the hospital on the 3rd floor and I would be lying if I said it didn't creepy me out. The place gives me the heebie jeebies!
I don't know why it looks so bright, it was close to sunset when we were there.
Definitely some gorgeous views of the city from the rock.
Whirlwind tour of SF and great times with friends. I can't wait for our reunion back in October!!

Spinach, Arugula (which I swapped out for green onions), fingerling potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, bell peppers, cucumbers, mangos (which I swapped out for pears), white peaches, strawberries (which I swapped out for green beans) and valencia oranges. It's going to be great to get my new box on Monday. I am excited for my peaches!

Starting next Thursday, The Seattle International Film Festival aka SIFF starts. Last year, I was encourage to go by a friend and ended up loving the 2 movies I saw. The Swimsuit Issue is on Comcast On-Demand if anyone wants to check it out. It's about a group of men starting their own synchronized swimming team and it's hilarious. K and I have been trying AGES to find this movie on dvd so you can imagine how shocked I was when I saw it on On-Demand.
This year, I am volunteering! Mostly because I can get free tickets to movies. I'm all about the free stuff :) I can't wait for the film festival to start.

picture from Apartment Therapy.
I got sucked into watching the infomercial on tv and now all I think about is the different smoothies I can make all summer long....with the HOMEMADE ice cream that I make.

It's got a nice mix of fruits and veggies. I got 4 apples, 5 oranges and a MANGO! The mango is a little random and I had to double check my list to make sure I wasn't going crazy...Veggie wise I got, lettuce, carrots, radish, mushrooms, tomatoes, purple tomatoes, spring onions and broccoli.
Notice that I subbed in the tomatoes? I originally had strawberries and since I'm not a huge strawberries fan, I'm glad they allowed me to change it. They also give a couple recipe suggestions which I appreciate!
