It's the Weekend!

Hi everyone! Happy Weekend!

We don't have any huge or exciting plans for this weekend. Hubby needs to get new license tabs for his car. We are meeting Delightful Daughter and her lovely boyfriend for dinner. That will be fun, we always have a good time with those two. Daughter is actually my step-daughter, but we have been a family since she was five. I totally consider her my daughter and love her very much. She and her father are so much alike it's comical. I have so many memories of the two of them looking alike, having the same mannerisms, it's really precious. They have the same sense of humor too.

Right now I have a sleepy Charlie on my lap and Hubby has a sleepy Ollie on his lap. Honeypuppy is curled up on here favorite blanket. We really enjoy these lazy weekend mornings. I am working on a small amigurumi bird that I hope to finish before dinner. I will take a picture of it when I have finished.

Here are some weekend vacation photos for your viewing. :o)

Here is a picture of me...yikes! I am standing in front of my most favorite restaurant in the world. It has yummy food, but that's not the only reason I love it. When I was a child my parents used to take me to San Francisco for something to do on the weekend. I LOVE San Francisco. It is so beautiful and has so many fond memories attached to it for me. Anyway, when I was young I was the only kid at home. My brothers and sister are much older than me. On special occasions we would have lunch or dinner in San Francisco at the Fisherman's Grotto in Fisherman's Wharf. This was the fanciest restaurant that I ever went to as a child. It has white table clothes and the waiters are very formal. It has dark carpets and lots of wood trim. It also has awesome views of the SF bay. Just stunning on a clear day.

This place is just a few blocks from Fisherman's Grotto. This store is the cornerstone of Ghirardelli Square. This is a wonderful shopping center in an old brick building. You can watch them make chocolate in this store. And you can eat chocolate in this store! Yummy!! Ghirardelli Square is another place with a ton of memories attached to it. I love this place!

These photos are from a fabulous weekend trip Hubby and I took in January 2007. We had lunch at Fisherman's Grotto with my niece, she's a year older than me, and my brother, he's eleven years older than me. After lunch we all walked over to Ghirardelli Square and wandered around. That was a special trip for me, so many old memories remembered and so many new memories made.

What a sentimental old sap I am!


  1. Relaxing weekends are the best! I'm working this weekend(nights), but get time to some couch cuddling with the boys between sleeping and working! ;D


  2. There is a ghirardelli ice cream store in south beach and it is my favourite! That's where I pet a pug for the first time and decided that I wanted one for my own. I love the sundaes and hot chocolate. How lucky that you live somewhat close to the factory. I am very sentimental about old memories, too. When we go to Peru my husband does not understand why I have to go to certain places that he thinks that are not nice at all... just because it brings back old memories to me. Sometimes I even cry, what a baby!

  3. oh that sounds like a wonderful weekend!
    i cannot wait to see your little birdy. :)

  4. Mom is moaning about chocolate now, and how she wants a store like that here. Those are great memories you have. Mom does not think you are a sentimental old sap. She thinks you are cool. And being sentimental is not a bad thing.


    PS we love your cupcake.

  5. I have never been to San Francisco but If I ever got there I too would head straight off to the Fishermans wharf. Seen it on TV and magazines .
    I do , however buy Ghirardelli's hot double chocolate in a tin. I am sure I pay double for it here in Australia but - its the best hot choc powder in the world! I would pay three times the price - I just hope they Never stop importing it here! LOL

  6. mmm...chocolate! thank you for sharing the photos - it looks like the sun was actually shining there! My boss lives out there so I get to visit from time to time and he is the one who talked us into getting pugs! And nothing has been the same since. : )

  7. I love San Fran, too! My family is from there and I was born there and grew up in & around Sunnyvale/ Santa Clara.

    And I like both WoW and Warhammer...and they're both very similar...but I personally find Warhammer better. :) Do you play?
