The city by the bay...

Yesterday we were really lucky to join some friends in "the city" to celebrate a special boys' fifth birthday. We had so much fun taking BART, going to Pier 39 and the aquarium and of course eating! We had lunch at Boudin with sourdough bread bowls and clam chowder, then walked to Ghiradelli for ice cream (never too cold for Ghiradelli chocolate on ice cream!)





Which brings me to another matter!!!! This Saturday is hubby's "Winter Ball" at the W Hotel in San Francisco. It is quite a swanky event. Of course I put off trying to find a dress. I found this dress late Saturday night here.

So, I ordered it and paid for expedited shipping and it arrived today. Soooo sadly it did not fit!Hmmm, too much chocolate? Not enough gym??? But the really nice lady sent me out a new one, keep your fingers crossed that the new one will get here in time! Oh, and that it fits this time. So excited to go to the Ball...

San Francisco is such a great city. I have not been there in many years but your post has inspired me to think about another trip soon!
