San Francisco Fun.

Josh and I took advantage of a Saints playoff game in SF to enjoy some great food with friends and family and a little r&r.

Getting off the plane in SF. Fox 8 sports talking to Josh about the game. Camera hog.

First stop was Swan's Oyster Depot. Amazing oyster's, crab salad, chowder, herring and more.

Our room at Hotel Vitale on the Embarcadero had a view of the Bay Bridge. Lovely.

Pre game farmer's market visit, where our friend and food blogger Pim of Chezpim, was selling her award winning jams.

Game day at Candlestick. Tailgateing with fellow New Orleanians. Josh getting into the mood with a quick game and pose. Heisman.

Popeye's represented.

We got on the field for pre game and saw up close the Saints' game faces. Love me some Jimmy!!

It was a crazy game and ended as a true heartbreaker. This photo says it all.

We made it out of there with our lives. (Actually we had a pretty good experience with the 49ers fans.) And headed to Nojo in Hayes Valley. An awesomely delicious and very interesting Japanese tapas/skewer restaurant.

We did some sight seeing, SFMOMA (great Richard Serra show) and some shopping around.

Love this advertisement.

On Sunday we headed down to Los Gatos to eat at Manresa. Josh's best buddies 2 star Michelin restaurant for an amazing meal. You must eat here before you die.

David at the bar.

An egg dish like nothing you have ever had before.

We headed south to Santa Cruz to hang out with Pim and David for Monday. The Dream Inn on the beach was a great stop for us.

Ultimate hangout.

Thinking of the Herrington house here. Oodles of black and white bean bags. Please say yes!

Mose's birthday party. 12 years.

Mose had a party to go along with his birthday. It was at the Great Lawn in City Park, one of our favorite places to spend some time together. Here he is with a few buddies. playing football.

He wanted a cookie cake, so we made one. He helped and it was way better than any store bought cookie cake for certain! BO$$

With the candles. To another year:)

The 2nd in my quest for a miracle. Azulene Calming Mask

Only kidding, but time IS my enemy at this point in my relationship with my face. I love this mask so much. Made by Mario Badescu. It is light and tingly and makes my face feel amazing!! Also available at my local Earthsavers.

What's in my cart?!?

A rug to cozy up to as the height of winter sets in. Souk rug at West Elm.

Kjoo necklace. I love her things so much. I buy them as gifts, but thinking about my own birthday coming up...

Happy New Year!!

We had a great New Year's Eve in the hood with 3 parties- including kids. The Florence's had a live singer songwriter and violinist with the best Cusimano veggie lasagna on the table. Second, a fresh sushi making fete at the Levine's, with a piano player and lots of champagne. And the third and final, at the amazing Herrington mansion with Curry pork tenderloin, fireworks, sparklers and all the trimmings. A great new year is ahead, indeed.

Mose hits midnight with a load, honking noise.

As the night ended and we headed home, the neighborhood church at Grand Route St John was just getting started. We ducked in to check out a song and it was a rocking gospel good time. Happy 2012!
