Living for the weekend.

This past weekend my best friend was in town, which means only good things will follow! Saturday Chris competed in a Jui Jitsu tournament & got second place! So I spent Saturday afternoon cheering him on & then Sunday we ventured out to the East Bay for some much needed R&R. We lounged by the pool & enjoyed a wonderful Sunday Dinner with my besties family. Throughout college I spent some many evening dining with my second family & it’s so nice whenever we’re able to go back. Plus we always bring Juno & she seriously LOVES suburbia! After a full day of running and swimming I’m amazed she had enough energy to take on Hog Island Oysters the very next day! Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Hog Island Oysters

^^ 8 miles & 100 Flights of stairs with my adventure girl.

^^ Gorgeous hiking through the redwoods.

Yesterday a group of us ventured to Marin & hiked Bass Lake & then stopped for lunch at  Hog Island Oyster co.  For years I’ve heard all about this iconic stop along highway 1. We purposefully went on a Monday to avoid the weekend crowds. We chose to shuck our own oysters, which is no easy feat! Hog Island provides the tools, & different garnishes for the oysters & you’re free to bring bbq gear, and outside food and drink. I hands down must recommend the BBQ oysters that they cook up and serve, SO delicious. Also, Hog Island is dog friendly, so that is just an added bonus. Reservations must be made ahead of time but it definitely lived up to all the hype.

Labor Day Love

Labor Day kind of snuck up on us this year. We didn’t plan any getaways & it honestly turned out to be a great weekend in the city. Friday, Juno (our black lab) & I did an urban hike through Golden Gate Park. We walked about 6 miles in the park & it was awesome. We stumbled upon the amazing waterfall above Stow Lake. I had been to the waterfall before but somehow missed the part where you’re able to walk to the top!! Juno seriously was in heaven. Friday night we reunited with one of near & dear friends & just went out to a delicious dinner & enjoyed being out in SF. Saturday was a true test of our relationship, we had to go to Ikea – hung over, on both a holiday weekend & a college move in weekend!!! Luckily we survived & successfully built our furniture haha. We rounded out the weekend with a little bbq & I made some of deviled eggs & a watermelon caprese salad! Holidays are just the best excuse to make delicious treats! Happy unofficial end of summer all!
