Whatever happened to predictability?
I am Stephanie Tanner.
Megan (older sis) = DJ
Amy (younger sis) = Michelle
We seriously thought this was true in 1993.
I will soon be channeling my inner Stephanie Tanner soon because you see…
I am going to San Francisco!
I leave on August 6th with sister Megan (DJ) and my mom.
I have a history with this city and because of this, it just happens to be my favorite place in the United States. Well, except for Washtucna, WA. Bold statement I know.
At my last job in Spokane, I was able to travel to SF about 6 or 7 times and truly cherished each visit, despite having to be in meetings during the day. Because my boss was AWESOME (still is), I was also able to shop, eat at amazing restaurants (more about that later), walk around Fisherman’s Wharf, The Ferry Building and go to Asia SF. Google it.
First trip to SF, Alcatraz in the background
What makes SF such a special place? It’s tough to explain unless you’ve been there. To me, it’s the most interesting, cultural, exciting city I have ever been to. I love it’s size, it’s people and the fact that it’s on the water. Oh, and there’s a 4-level Forever 21.
Not that we’ll only shop here! We also plan on thrifting and trying to find some funky, unique shops as well. That doesn’t mean we won’t hit up the staples, like H&M, Zara and of course Anthropologie. We’re not stupid.
The restaurant choosing will also be quite difficult as I have eaten at some amazing places in SF, including Chez Panise, Asia de Cuba, A16, Foreign Cinema and the most exciting, Teatro ZinZanni (an amazing dinner show).
And of course, candy and cupcake shop scouting will be a must. Maybe we’ll even drive up to Napa and eat at Bottega and Michael Chiarello and I will be like old chums by the end of the meal! And also Hubert Keller will be there AND Alice Waters. They’ll invite me to their vacation homes where we will cook delicious food and I’ll drink gimlets. They’ll call me The Girl Who is Friends with Celebrity Chefs.
Can you tell I’ve just finished the newest Sophie Kinsella book, “Mini Shopaholic”? It was fab.
Anyway, I promise to document this trip thoroughly and report back with gumption. Watch out SF, the Danielsons are a’comin!
And if anyone doesn’t like it, I’ll simply say “How rude!”.
