all the lights

it's holiday time in tacoma/seattle! this weekend i headed up to seattle for a concert (The Shins!- post to come) and it was great to see the city all dazzled for the holidays. all the christmas lights and trees make me ache for home. Luckily only 2 finals, and 4 days stand in my way until i'm back in san francisco! i also headed to zoo lights and saw some feisty tiger cubs. happy monday! (i'm officially done with accounting!)

what i've missed

my last post was november 7, that's almost a full month! so while i've been MIA from the blog world i've missed out on quite a bit, but with winter break just on the horizon ( 9 days!) i'm planning on devoting some hardcore time to blogging, because to be honest i really enjoy it.

also, woah it's december it feels like i just posted this

 i'm not the first person to say this nor will i be the last but reading is a ton of fun. it's probably because books let me go to a different place and time all from my bed. however i often find myself not having time or not making time to read just for fun, cause accounting isn't usually light reading. but books have been on my mind lately so here are a few of the books on my to read list. are there any books you recommend? have you read any of these? 

the paris wife by Paula McLain

paper towns by John Green

memoires of a geisha by Arthur Golden

where'd you go, bernadette? by Maria semple

black & orange

from the 2010 World Series Parade!
 today is all about black & orange. yes i'm sure for most of you that means halloween, but to San Franciscans it means GIANTS PARADE! i havent been posting recently but all my friends know that i've been all about the SF Giants- we made it to the world series & guess what? we swept the detroit tigers!! we are 2012 world series champions! i thoroughly love baseball and our team and our players but what i love more is my city. i would give my left arm to be at the parade today celebrating the giants and san francisco. 

happy halloween!

 our second day was all about exploring! we went to granville island, gas land, granville st. shopping, a crepe cafe- which for some was the first crepe experience!, at a bar watching the giants play the cardinals, & making friends at a pub (my first pub experience- can't wait for more).

canadia 2012 pt. 1

i just got back from one of the funnest trips of my life! i went to vancouver over this four day weekend with some friends & i expected it to be a blast but it totally surpassed my expectations. i feel spoiled rotten to have had this much (needed) fun. we got their on saturday & for those of you who know Macklemore & Ryan Lewis: they were staying in our hotel & we had a conversation with Macklemore. if you don't know who they are please check this out, it's chilling.

sittin in Macklemore's chair! 
after taking a little nap (we were pooped after our drive) we went out & got some dinner (the best part was being able to order a glass of wine with our food). we also got dressed up & headed to a bar, which included a lot of dancing. to top off our first night in canada we took a dip in the pool!
