San Francisco Day 2: Staying Alive
September 8, 2015 § 5 Comments
I spent most of my second day convalescing in Kaiti’s bed while she was at work. #Mondayblues
In the morning, I managed to walk around the corner for some breakfast (and to buy three more boxes of tissues at CVS).
Flour & Co was a cute little bakery where I ordered a bowl of oatmeal, which I figured was good sick-person food. It was humongous. I also grabbed a lemon olive oil biscuit to nibble on throughout the day.
For dinner, Kaiti and I went to Palm House in the Marina neighborhood. At 5:30 p.m., the place was practically empty. The decor was super cute, with colorful birdcages hanging from the windowed ceiling. If I had a house with a sunroom, I’d totally decorate it like this!
The food was fine, but again, as with the previous day, I didn’t have much of an appetite and didn’t eat much. It was a bummer because I had compiled such a long food list for this trip and barely made a dent in it :( Though we did our best to make up for it the next day.
After dinner, we walked to the water to catch the sunset. The water was so peaceful, and everywhere you turned, you could see…people working out.
Wtf? I mean, I see people exercising all the time in NYC, but it’s mostly running. I don’t walk through parks that often, but I’ve certainly never seen a dedicated workout station like this?! I was highly amused.
We did a brief walkthrough of Ghirardelli Square (it was deserted) before capping our night at a bar called Local Edition, housed in the basement of the Hearst building and adorably newspaper-themed. Plus, there was a live jazz band!

I’d like to take a moment to appreciate the bag I had purchased just for this trip. I figured, with all the walking around I was planning to do, that a backpack would be ideal. But I haven’t really worn a backpack since sixth grade — I preferred to carry my books to class or use a messenger bag because backpacks were ugly and uncomfortable (or at least mine was!).
So I wanted something as durable as a regular backpack but sleek as a handbag. The Loeffler Randall mini backpack was love at first sight.
Not only is it super cute, it’s also very roomy and totally comfortable to wear all day. I love it!!! You’ll see it more in photos from the next few days of the trip, but I just had to take a minute to gush about it. (Sadly this color is currently sold out!)
