It’s been a while since I’ve done an instagram / iPhone photo dump here on s&p…
so here we go!
it starts like all good stories do…
with a trip to Delfina Pizza with D & Jim!
Jim ordered the meatball calzone
shhhhh… it’s on their secret menu!
followed by a cupcake dessert from Sift
love their packaging
and a few runs down along the water to undo some of the Delfina
or really bc we were training for a 10k
we headed over to Bezerkeley to see Mumford & Sons at the Greek
vino and pizza at Cheeseboard beforehand
a trip to NY for work
I finally tried their porchetta sandwich
really, really yum but don’t plan on getting any work done after eating this
I had to fit in a lunch at Beecher’s
he was ours for a day
I met up with friends at Otto
and met up with another friend at Buvette
they make a mean croque madame
we walked the High Line after
it’s an old railroad platform that they converted into a raised park
such a cool, off the beaten track (hardy har har) spot to check out
and then we headed off for our team retreat at an amazing house in the Hamptons
I was ready to move in
I came home just in the nick of time to celebrate D’s birthday
Bourbon Steak, in our opinion the best steak in SF
plus you can get Michael Mina’s ahi tuna tartare as a starter
it’s the reason I eat some fish now after a lifetime of being a hater
we headed up to Tahoe for the 4th of July
and got engaged!! :)
so there was a lot of celebrating to be done afterwards with friends & family
beach celebration picnic down in Laguna Beach
and then Noreen came to visit
always so fun – we eat a lot of pizza and watch a lot of movies, it’s awesome
typical SF summer… fog
but there were a few nice days
mj came to visit
and when the 10k finally came around
I got my best time!
we went down to Pajaro Dunes for our annual reunion with D’s fam
this sunset was unbeatable
lunch with Mum’s bestie Debra at Market Bar
we went to San Diego for a long weekend
that thankfully cleared up so we could picnic at Fort Mason for the first time this year!
driving across the new bridge
football games with friends & lots and lots of shady babies
and then another trip to NY, but this time with D!
Eataly sandwiches… seriously the best thing on earth
fresh baked bread, juicy tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and prosciutto
the Giants were playing both the Yankees and the Mets in the same week
which may or may not have been the prime reason for our trip
a long lazy lunch at Eataly on Saturday
their pizza is so so good
followed by a walk in the park
and a wine tasting class at Otto
something I’ve been wanting to do since I lived in NY in 2006
lots of rain as the taxis whizzed by our hotel
drinks at The Library Bar at the NoMad Hotel
of course, olive oil gelato from Otto
and D finally got to try a Shake Shack burger!
I really want to try this “make at home” version
back home and off to see The Lumineers play at the America’s Cup Pavilion
then off to Seattle for a girls weekend with my besties from college
this is Sam, he’s super cool
I’ve been dying to go to Delancey for years now
it did not disappoint
you can go and put your name in first
nom nom nom
such good pizza
and I highly suggest a chocolate chip cookie with gray salt for dessert
don’t worry, you can walk it off
like we did the next day on Bainbridge Island!
we got utterly drenched bc supposedly umbrellas are only for wimps in Seattle
lunch at the local pub afterwards
I felt chilled to my bones so a big bowl of soup was definitely in order
followed by board games next to the fire back at home
D and I decided to stay in for our 4 year anniversary
so I made these super easy tomato mozzarella stacks for our appetizer
and finally, mum & dad came up for a visit and so they could properly celebrate our engagement
the first night we went to Bourbon Steak, obviously a favorite of ours
love how they bring the trio of frites instead of bread!
and packed as much into the rest of the weekend as possible
including drinks with Cass & Jeff so mum & dad could meet Georgia
(love this shot so much!)
and of course finishing with Rose’s Cafe for our final meal together
Stay tuned for our Ireland & London trip recap!
