the parentals come to visit

I realized I never posted about my parent’s trip to SF… we had so so much fun!  There was a lot of walking, some meals out at a couple of new spots that my parent’s hadn’t tried yet (Cotogna and Wayfare Tavern), a few trips to the Ferry Building, a cozy night in with cheese & salumis for dinner, a long run down on Marina Green and Crissy Field, a Delfina Pizza night in after an awesome day up in Napa, an Oscar Party so they could meet all my college friends with an ultra competitive game on Oscar Bingo thrown in, but sadly no trip to Rose’s (gasp!). Ah well, next time I suppose!

  • D and I were talking a few weeks ago about what is the best thing to eat before a run, now that we’re starting to increase our mileage.  I really have no clue, and usually try to have a smoothie or a banana or something ‘light’, but that probably won’t cut it once we start getting up there in miles.  Luckily for me, Runner’s World comes to the rescue again with tips and tricks for eating and drinking before a run.
  • This would be so fun to go to… a Mad Men themed wedding!
  • Love this interview with Erin McKenna of BabyCakes, the bakery serving up amazing sweets for those afflicted with various food allergies.
  • You can’t beat a classic tomato soup, especially with this cold cold weather we’ve been having.
  • 2 weeks in St. Barths every year?  Sounds amazing.
