My sister is in town, visiting from NYC, for a week. She arrived on Friday, but we planned to go hiking on Sunday since I requested the day off. On Sunday, Kaitlyn, my sister, and I went on a little adventure to San Francisco. Yes, adventure is definitely the correct word. There were a lot of missed turns and re-routes involved. Shocker. I'm really bad with direction. I will get to my destination eventually. It just may take me longer than the average human. We headed to the Presidio, hiked a few trails, and hung out at Baker Beach. It was pretty foggy but still a nice, relaxing spot to chill out for the day.
We also climbed the stairs of death. Seriously, it is actually worse than it appears. It is not only steep but, as you get closer to the top, the logs disappear into the sand and you are basically climbing uphill and sinking in sand all at the same time. Once we reached the top, that was our cue for food. That was enough exercise for one day. Let's be honest, I only suggested hiking so I could feel less guilty about eating all the fries after.
We headed back to Walnut Creek to meet up with my long-lost roomie slash dental hygiene BFF, Alexis. She was craving a burger and I'm always in the mood for fries. Lex suggested this new spot called Broderick's, which coincidentally happened to be the same restaurant Kaitlyn and I said we wanted to try when we passed by a few days ago. Well, that worked out.
I got this burger that had mac 'n cheese, bacon, and crispy fried onions in it. Like woah. It comes with fries, salad, or something else I can't remember because obviously I stopped listening after fries. There's an option to upgrade the fries-- like chili fries, garlic fries, etc etc. But I'm a basic bitch and don't usually like all that crap on my fries. Oh yeah, I topped off this heart attack meal with a vanilla milkshake that was custardy and delicious. It was a fun lunch with some of my favorite people.
We all went back to my and Lex's place and had puppy time. I asked my friend if I could watch the pup for a night. My mom went to pick up the Smokey while we were out and met up with us later for the puppy handoff. He got a little bigger since we played last week. Ugh. But still, this guy knows he's the cutest with his puppy rolls and all. He has so much energy but when he gets tired he looks even more adorable.
I am obsessed. We're friends. He finally has a harness, leash, and learning to potty outside. I have also been trying to teach him some commands. He knows sit really well but still working on stay, come, and lay down.
I had to meet up with Crystal, Smokey's owner, on Monday night. And this is what his face looked like when I told him he had to go home. Saying "goodbye" to this face is the hardest thing.
Miss you already, little one. Can't wait until our next play date.
