San Francisco

To wrap up Christmas vacation, Ryan and I took a trip up to San Francisco last weekend. The biggest storm to hit the bay area in over a decade also spent the weekend there. We did not let a little wind, rain, thunder, and lightning ruin our fun, though. Since the great outdoors wasn't our #1 destination, we went to the gym a couple of times, ate at some unique cafes, and had an obligatory bred bowl of chowder followed by a Ghirardelli hot cocoa!! YUM!! Here are some fun pictures from our trip...

I left my heart in San Francisco!

Ryan's favorite eatery near the hotel (although we never actually ate there!)

Stopping by China Town on our way back from the gym

The Christmas tree in Ghirardelli Square

My favorite place!!

Ryan at the Cable Car station

The MOST delicious edemame at The Citrus Club
(this alone is worth a trip to San Francisco!)

A quick jaunt through Haight Ashbury

Thunderbolts and Lightning in San Diego!!

When the storm hit San Diego this weekend, lightning struck hard at Qualcomm! That's right! The Chargers won their first playoff game!! Whoo Hoo!! Ryan and I had UNBELIEVABLE seats!! We were so close to the field and right in the end zone! Our view was almost as good as the refs'!! Way to go, boys!
