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!
