Finally Friday


I feel like a broken record saying it was a busy week, but it was a really freaking busy week. How was yours?

Hoping to duck out of work on time to mail one of my bests her birthday gift (happy birthday Whitney!), get a much-needed manicure and pedicure (this city takes its toll), and then relax at home with a cocktail. Tomorrow we're headed to a rooftop party for Fleet Week (it's a big deal here) before dinner at Bar Tartine. To be honest, I'll probably be working on Sunday but my reward will be an afternoon spent checking out Old Oakland and grabbing drinks at Desco with my brother-in-law who recently moved out of the city and east to Oakland.

See you Monday (with a giveaway!) but first check out some links:

Congrats to Jillian!!

Love hard ciders! They've become my go-to since I can't really drink beer anymore (unless it's gf, and so far I haven't found a gf one I actually like). Have you tried Sonoma Ciders? The pear cider is pretty delicious. :)
