Andrew and I are trying to make it a tradition that for our birthdays we do a getaway with friends. So for Andrew’s birthday weekend, we decided to celebrate in the beautiful Santa Barbara. I have never been to Santa Barbara, but for those who know me, I am obsessed with the beach and wish that I lived by the ocean (one day it will happen)!
This past weekend our friend decided to gather up some people to try to “Escape the Room” sf. For those of you who haven’t heard of this, the basic concept is that you are locked in a room and you need to figure out clues and get yourself out within 1 hour.
Over the weekend we decided to go hiking at Mori Point in Pacifica. I found a great trail that was approximately 6 miles that had amazing views of the ocean. Although we live pretty close to Pacifica we have never stopped by, who knew that it is such a great place for a morning hike.

Every year I count down the days to our yearly Genentech Gives Back Benefit Concert, one of my favorite events of the summer… not to mention its free for employees! After last years underwhelming line up, this year we were promised the line up would be much better. Continue reading
This past weekend I was finally able to take my new bike out on a cruise. I have always wanted a cruiser bike and I got a pretty sweet deal from a friend for this pretty pink Public bike. Since the weather was beautiful Andrew and I decided to head over to Sawyer Camp trail right off of crystal springs road.
This weekend, we got free tickets to the Makers Faire in San Mateo. I have heard great things in the past about Makers Faire and was excited we get to attend this year! This is a yearly fair that consists of tons of DIY stations, new technologies and electronics, cool displays using ordinary things and lots more. Continue reading
I haven’t been able to craft lately because I have been so busy with the new pup, etsy store sales and work. Luckily, tonight I was able to get a little creative break in and take a lettering class that I signed up for a couple of months ago at the SF Center for the Book.
