I believe I mentioned in a prior post that when I come home to Marin, I tend to have a much less bustling social life and trendy happy hour schedule. However, considering this time I am only home for a week, I have managed to be busy enough to have to retweet clever diatribes from those I follow via Blackberry and to have to forego my regular “funemployment” schedule from Portland (meaning sleeping as late as I want and then taking five hours to rise/blowdry/exfoliate/outfit-test). Now, it basically means I have to put on one outfit and just hope it isn’t a fail…
…it’s good practice though for my career power-woman paparazzi-escaping future.
Anyhow, last night I managed to meet up with two of the most beautiful women I know, two ladies who I try to ALWAYS make a point of seeing when I hit the Bay (unfortunately the third, Adrienne was not there so I did not get to see her lovely lil visage this time). Bethany, Liz, Adrienne, and I all met by fate two years ago and have managed to keep in touch and get together each time at least two of us are in the vicinity. Bethany is a hot, ridiculously fun, fashionable, and down to earth about-to-be-famous San Francisco lady with a fiery mane of curls and the most gorgeous eyelashes humanely possible. Liz is a sexy stylish Belvedere-bred siren who can crack a wit-infused joke and rant about hipster culture with me like NO OTHER. In other words, I ADORE spending time with these women and LOVE them even more
Last night, Liz and I hit up the Upper Haight in San Francisco to fetch Bethany from her trendy-mama apartment (with a bed to die for) and we headed to a chic tapas jaunt, Andalu in the Mission district (which is a very very much hipster-laden part of SF if I may add) for some small plates and good times:
The food was incredible, I’m a huge fan of tapas/small plates/shared meals- it definitely brings more variety and a non-binding opportunity to try something you normally wouldn’t. ABSOLUTELY coming back to Andalu in the near future.
It was also such a treat to spend time dishing, laughing, and catching up with these two beautiful ladies who I am so grateful to have in my life.
