san francisco treat

so the cat is out of the bag (hypothetically, of course. i WISH i had a kitty.)

scott has been keeping our honeymoon plans under wraps for months, and suprisingly, i was ok with that. i had other things to worry about… wedding plans, obviously! what came after was out of my brain! i had a few times where i almost had him tell me, but i didn’t want to ruin the suprise.

well, after scott got his haircut, his stylist said “have fun in san francisco!” I just gave him the biggest smile, I’m so pumped to go!!

i grew up going to san fran, my great grandparents lived up on telegraph hill in an old narrow house with an organ and purple and black checkered bathroom.  however, i haven’t spent any time in the city beyond a day seeing the sights. SO STOKED to be seeing the city for days upon days, walking around and enjoying the wonderful company of my HUSBAND.


yes, husband. 6 more days.

anyway… we need some cool spots to check out in san francisco. please send ideas our way.
