Places to visit in SF

I have an upcoming work trip this summer to San Francisco, and I am stoked to get some craftacular shopping in and eating. Favorite haunts and places I've been dying to go for a while


Britex (ENORMOUS ribbon and button section!!! Pricey, but good grief, it's a marvelous store)

Mama's (Good eats, particularly brunch)

826 Valencia (A pirate shop!!!)

In-n-Out (eats-- cheap, I miss it.)

Amoeba Records (classic Haight/Ashbury)

Mijita Cocina (eats)

Standard 5&10 (Ace Hardware)

Modern Times Book store

Curiosity Shoppe

Cat Seto

The Ribbonerie-- That's right- an entire store that just sells ribbons!!!

Satin Moon

List to be yarn stores yet.

Taco Mix

Don't buy the kind in the store if you keep spices in the house:

1 tablespoon chili powder (I use a mix of chipotle, ancho, New Mexico, and regular)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon of sugar

Throw in a baggie or a tupperware and shake. Add into ground meat (or fake meat) with chopped up onions.

Homemade peeps and other bitchin crafts

Check out this website for homemade peeps!

And these shoes-- holy crap these are cute!

New Website/Save the Dates

I made our save the date cards with the utter and complete talents of my niece Lauren and then I found a website that had the same idea as me. Ours are far more DIY and less 'perfect' but I am super pleased with how they turned out so far. They still need the writing part on them...hopefully I can mail them out sooner rather than later, but don't hold your breath just yet.
