San Francisco, Here we come. One of the reasons I have been absent from my blog is I am trying to get ready for my trip to California. The hubby and I will be staying two days in San Francisco (and staying with a cousin) and then six days in San Jose (staying with my mom and stepdad). If you are from the area or have visited the Bay area, please feel free to leave a comment with suggestions of what I should do while I am there. The line up so far - Alcatraz, Ferry Building Marketplace, Ghirardelli Square, Fisherman's Wharf, Montrery Aquarium, Winchester Mystery House and not to forget some shopping - Union Square, Gilroy Outlets, Trader Joe's and Target. One last thing, I will also gladly accept restaurant recommendations!
hug TO Cookies and Champagne Party. You have probably heard me mention Lisa from The Hip + Urban Girl's Guide. I have met up with her a couple of times and she asked me to guest post for her blog earlier this month. She's a super sweet girl and has a knack for throwing awesome social events. If you live in Toronto, you must sign up for their upcoming event, Cookies and Champagne. It's a great way to meet new people and take home loads of cookies. If you are not a baker, no need to worry, you can register for just the networking event. I got my ticket, do you have yours? Sign up soon!
Glee - Never Been Kissed. How awesome was last night's episode? I thought the Britney and Duets episode was pretty good but this one is up there in my al-time favorites. The rendition of Teenage Dream was beyond words, I actually need to watch it again and then maybe a couple times more. The girl's mash up was sexy but I found the boy's mash up was lacking.
My new favorite tunes. I can't get enough of Robyn's Dancing on my Own. I first heard the Deadmua5 remix at one of the MTV musics awards show and then I heard it again on last week's episode of Gossip Girl (remember the sexy piano scene with Chuck & Blair?). I listen to this song on repeat all the way on my commute into work. Another song that I keep on playing is Far East Movement's Girls on the Dance Floor. I know people are not too thrilled about this Asian group but I like their songs, they are quite catchy. Plus, the beats just make me want to get up and dance (well, maybe just chair dance - I am old, I no longer dance in public).
Restaurant Story. Every now and again, I find an iPhone game that I get so involved in. This past week it's been Restaurant Story. It's very much like City Story, Tap Farm, Tap Store...you get it...I am beginning to think I enjoy games where you must lock a new level. It's like the anticipation and opening of a Christmas/birthday present.
Well, that's it from me. I will continue packing tonight and schedule a few blog posts before I leave and hopefully, I will get a chance to blog while I am on my trip. Before you leave my blog, don't forgot to enter my giveaway, it closes this Friday.
