Good grief! I’ve had such an exhausting, but fun weekend. …and although it’s only Monday, I still have to get TONS done in the next few days.
On Saturday, I had the opportunity to finally meet one of the fellow Pink Sketches‘ gals. Sophia and her husband Dave are visiting San Francisco for the week, so we decided to meet up! I promised her that I would show her around some parts of the city. We had a long, but fun and exciting day exploring the city and its surrounding areas!
She told me that she always sees cupcake pictures on my blog, so I promised her that I would take her to eat some cupcakes. How can that not be fun, right?!
…and what better place to take another fellow scrapper?! Well, duh… a scrapbook store, of course! 🙂 She went scrapbook happy in Scrapbook Territory — so happy that adding her tab to my account at that store bumped me up to a “Frequent Buyer”. Thanks, Sophia, for the 5% of all purchases! 🙂
After that, we just roamed around the city, and I tried showing her the beauty of San Francisco on a foggy day.
First stop for the day was Ocean Beach. This was Hilo’s first time playing in sand, and he LOVED it! He was going crazy running around like a little hooligan. …and of course, Maui enjoyed playing with him!
Next, we stopped by the Legion of Honor, which showcases ancient and European art. It’s definitely a site to see. I especially love the Rodin sculpture remake; it’s absolutely beautiful.
We drove to Golden Gate to check it out, but it was such a foggy day. You could not see the bridge in its entirety, so we headed to Coit Tower. This is one of my favorite places in the city because I love the view. While hanging out for a short visit to Coit Tower, Maui and Hilo were being “pup-lebrities”. Tourists were shooting photos of them left and right, and I needed them to sit and “pose”. They loved all of the free scratches! 🙂
The Palace of Fine Arts was definitely a place I had to show her. I love the architecture of this building; it’s absolutely magnificent. Maui and Hilo loved this stop because they wanted to chase the ducks and swans in the water.
Next stop was the beautiful Victorian houses of San Francisco, “The Painted Ladies”.
Lastly, we drove up and down the steep hills of San Francisco, and we made sure to drive them down the famous “Crooked Street”, Lombard.
It was definitely a tiring day, but it was a lot of fun showing friends around the city. Hopefully, they thought it was just as fun. 🙂
I can’t wait until tomorrow because we’re going to get our scrap on. 😉 Yeehaw!
Oh, and before I forget… I wanted to share my latest layout. This is the second layout I created for Lydia. I hope she likes it. 😉 I used the latest sketch over at Pink Sketches. I thought this was a unique sketch, but it was definitely fun to play around with. Head on over, and scrap a layout or two using this week’s sketch!
Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead of you.
