BOWLS OF COFFEE!!! I love bowls of coffee!  And mine wasn’t even the large!  Also enjoyable was the amazing croque madame with a fried egg on top of course.  I bought some Hazelnut Jam as seen here, but haven’t used it much… :/

I adore San Fran and will be heading up to check out La Boulange in LA when the long lines die down….so next year?  :p

I hear there is a full restaurant and bar as well as the expected coffee and bakery.  OH and DONT YOU DARE leave the establishment until you’ve got an almond croissant in your hand/mouth.  They’re scrumptious!!

I hope that since this is now a “partner” of Starbucks or something they don’t…mass corporation the shit out of it.  :/  When Starbucks sells their La Boulange items they’re tres terrible.  Well here’s hopin!  Check out their website here.  Oh and you can use your Starbs Gold Card there!  Tres cool!

Biking the Golden Gate Bridge!!!

We biked 10 miles today from the wharf across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito!!!! We had such a great day! The weather was amazing 75 degrees and sunny!! After walking around Sausalito we took the ferry back to the wharf and got some fish and chips. Finally ending the day on board the Century in the Persian Gardens Spa tonight was pure “Modern Luxuryyyyyyyy!”

San Francisco, CA Day 2

Another fabulous day in San Fran!!!! We took the muni to Haight and Ashbury where all the hippies live! Hahaha it was amazing. We went to La Boulange for brunch and the coffee is served in bowls, BOWLS! It was scrumptious. We walked down to Haight and Ashbury and looked in 10 different vintage shops. Lenaya bought me some psychedelic heart shaped sunglasses. The Victorian houses around that area are expensive but adorable. My new goal in life is to live there!!! I’m obsessed. Can’t wait to be back next week!!

San Francisco, CA Day 1

Omg I love San Fran!!!! One of my favorite cities by far!!! We sailed in under the Golden Gate Bridge which was really really cool. The weather was nice and sunny miraculously! We went to Fisherman’s Wharf and had bomb clam chowder in a bread bowl. I bought some tee shirts and we perused the shops. It was a wonderful day!!!!
