Little Things Lately ...

Reading// My new subscription to San Francisco magazine. Pretty pumped about it, as well as the gorgeous 'welcome to SF' flowers Jay had waiting for me when I arrived Monday evening.

Writing// Blogs. I'll be back with a full workweek of blogs ready to go next week! It's been annoying being too scattered to post them but whenever I thought I should blog in lieu of packing or unpacking, somewhere in the distance I heard a cackling laugh.

Noshing// I went to Rose's Cafe this week for a dang break from unpacking. It's right up the road, looked adorable and had outdoor seating to accommodate my little leashed sidekick (Jay has been in NYC all week for work). Turns out, it's actually a really nice place and when I ordered a side of fried potatoes (because you know, #diet and stuff...) and roasted chicken, I didn't realize I was ordering an entire platter. But yum was it good. And it made for a great dinner the next night too.

Wearing// So many things I forgot I owned and have unearthed the last few weeks. I'd like to thank my hoarding abilities & my lack of organizational skills for always surprising me like this when I move.

Toasting// A goodbye to my Portland office! My colleagues threw me a little going away happy hour on the roof of the building. It was sugar and spice (and everything nice).

Excited to// Have our first full weekend in SF!! We have a lot to do yet and errands to run (we need some furniture after living in a smaller place previously) but it will still just be so nice to be here together. The world is our oyster!

Admiring// That little print I saw while out shopping. I didn't get it because it doesn't really go with my stuff but dangit if that little chin scruff doesn't remind me of my favorite little doggy (he is part JRT after all!).

Feeling// The burn in my legs. We hiked Mt. St. Helen's last weekend (more on that next week) and honestly, the soreness I have from that + all these SF hills has me loudly moaning anytime I go on a walk. OWIE, that really hurt Charlie and it's still hurting.

So happiest Friday to all of you! Looking forward to being a reader/writer in blogland again on the reg next week :)

Just try and moan alone, don't want to scare away the other walkers hahaha geez, Jay hasn't had much of a break, traveling every which way.

Walking around SF is a total workout.

LOLOL you surely heard a cackle in the distance when you considered blogging over getting life situated. All things in good time!

I hope you share furniture you pick up - I'm in the mood to buy new with no need for new, so I'll settle for gazing at someone else's!

How sweet of your co-workers to throw you a farewell party on the roof - sounds like so much fun! Can't wait to hear more about your new life/digs in San Fran :)

Happy Friday <3

I can't wait to hear all the juicy detailed of San Fransico!!! Your posts made me want to visit Portland so I can only imagine how you will portray Cali!!

that's so funny that you have rediscovered clothes and whatnot. What a fun perk to moving!

The Yukon Gold Potato Hash with Mushrooms, Onions, Cheddar & Organic Poached Eggs on Rose Cafe's Brunch Menu sounds yummy. I cracked up when I read your note "Wearing//"! That's a wonderful attitude I could stand to adopt myself, seeing as how my own hoarding and lack of organizational skills are epic. I'm always impressed by your physical prowess and ambition. Hiking Mount Saint Helen's was a huge challenge to take on. Have a happy Sunday, Monday, remainder of Summer, and adventures in the blogosphere.
