The Mamacita Weekendlies

Another beautiful weekend in the bay.
Foggy mornings, bright blue days, warm spring evenings.

After a lovely friday night dinner under these lights...

I woke up early to meet Cari and Jordan in the city for Brunch.

As I was driving around looking for parking I noticed a place with a line around the block.
Turns out, it was the place we were headed, Mama's.

We waited an hour and a half to get in.
And you know what, it was totally worth it.
Not just because the french toast was AWESOME, but because if you're going to wait an hour and a half in line, it may as well be with a friend you don't get to see that often.

I dropped Cari and Jordan at their hotel, and since I was right there, hopped over to the ferry building to pick up a few mother's day goodies. Fresh flowers from the Farmer's market, and a slice of cake for my mom from Miette Bakery. I may have gotten myself a strawberry and chocolate cupcake as well.

Headed home and spent a little time whipping up these for the moms in my life.
Headed to my grandma's to drop hers off, only to learn that she had left that morning for an Alaskan cruise.
Welp, I guess it truly will have to be the thought that counts on that one.

Spent an afternoon relaxing, watching the Giants win, and then picked up these two for our once a month outing.
McDonald's, every time.
Their request.
I was not comfortable allowing a cat to come along, but I guess I didn't really have a choice.
Also, we LOVE vanilla cones.

Mylie seems to have an affinity for cats these days.
It's making me very nervous. 

Also, after McDonald's we always hit up the dollar tree.
I may have not so subtly suggested these ribbon dancers.
Kept them busy, got the wiggles out,
and it was pure magic as the sun went down.

Sunday, I concluded the weekend celebrating my Mom.
She is crazy and quirky and will often surprise you with her humor.
We took her to Panera Bread - which she kept referring to as "Paner-o"
(Tomato, Tomahto, right?)

And then back into SF to the Asian Art Museum.

Where we saw the Terracotta Warriors exhibit.
Which, despite everyone and their mother being there (literally),
was really awesome.

We explored the rest of the museum a bit, before heading home.
Where I put new pillows on my bed, and took a magical nap.
Nothing better than new pillows and a Sunday nap.

Happy Monday, friends.
Here's to another fantastic weekend!
