san francisco

we just got back from san francisco! it was a great trip...ben had a convention there all week so i flew in on wednesday to meet up with him. we had a few days after the convention to go sightseeing.
and i know, i always post TONS of photo's..but hey, my blog is mainly for me & is also my journal right now. photo's say it a lot better than i can sometimes :).. bodega bay... and here's the famous golden gate bridge! it was our first time ever seeing it in person..it's enormous!!!...

we went out for sushi one night...i love sushi! (dang, i forgot to put sushi on my last post..hehe)... ben taking pics of me in our room... we went to fisherman's wharf (which i would HIGHLY recommend to anyone going to the san fran area)..it was great! we were there for hours..lots to do.. eating lunch at the famous, 'boudin' cafe and shop..the best sourdough ever!... we took a boat ride to the golden gate & alcatraz...as you can see it got really foggy! we could hardly see anything :). it was still fun though.. alcatraz.. wax museum...we ate lunch at rainforest cafe... is this classic or what?!... the famous ghiradeli (chocolate) square... we shared a yummy ghirardelli ice cream sudae :)... i found a new favorite place on ghiradeli square.. it's a little shop called, kara's cupcakes!! i fell in love with it!! first off, cupcakes are my favorite..and secondly, they had my name written all over them!!! it was perfect!!! such a cute cupcake shop!!.. sitting in our hotel lobby...ben in front of our hotel...the oakland temple! this temple is really cool because it has garden's on top of it that you can walk around on...and of course...a quick stop at the harley shop :)...

So fun! I loved San Fransisco, and especially the sourdough bread at Fisherman's Wharf. I wish Jas and I could have traveled more. I love it. P.S. I'm sorry about contributing to your delinquency with the Mochas!! :)
