The Yay Area

I spent the weekend + 1 week day in good ol' san francisco. Fun times I tell ya!
This is my 3rd visit to the Bay, Gay, Yay area and everytime I've gone there, it always strikes me how everyone is soo hippie-ish. A bunch of good olk' happy hippies who don't own irons, take daily showers, own cars or even more than a certain amount of clothing but they seem happy! The simple simple life indeed.

As it is with my SF visits, I made sure to stop by the Goodwill store aka Salvation army and my o, my did I find some stuvvs? I wish I had pics. Infact I will take pics and post...
I found the most darling pair of tan Etienne Aigner shoes for $6
Lovely deep purple dress (needs a little alteration) for $7
Lovely mustard bomber for $6
A grey dress for $6
White sling bag for $2.75
And a multi-colored summery straw bag for $2.50

*Note: Do dryclean any items you buy for Goodwill, if you can.

Then I stopped by the forever 21 store and bought some darling shades for $5.99
Old Navy for a cute dress and gold flip flops--> $20 and some change in total

Not a lot of damage at all. :-)

Of course, shopping wasn't the only thing I did. I went to watch my friend and her bandmates play on the street and I raised money for the band in a hat.

I went for a house party on saturday night and I had a ton of fun! Too much fun...I think one of my favorite parts of the eve was winding down on the couch at 3a.m and having a totally meaningless convo with some random cutie. I can't even tell you what the heck we were talking about..it made no sense. lol

We wanted to go to a Hookah bar but plans changed.

We drove up to the homes on the hills (Or the mountains as my razz friend said)

We drove up to some random place, parked and walked up a little hill to look down on the beautiful city. Wonderful view!

I went to a dance rehearsal. That was loads of fun.

And all in all, I had a blast! Visit San Fran whenever you can...

Of course, we ran into the funniest gay dude. *2 snaps for the kids*..he was a TRIP!

Now, I am back to reality. Booo! But I do have a trip to Puerto Rico in June to look forward to. Matter of fact, I have launched my operation 'Get my beach bod by June 20' plan.

How was your weekend? :)

Glad you had a blast in San Fran! Been there once and hope to be going again in July...Can't wait to get away from the 'Bama. I now know who to ask about the nicest places to visit there (not just the tourist spots).

Good luck with the beach body plan, and continue your enjoyment :)
