A Week in Photos

Lucky for me Firebrand bakery is right next to my office. I am OBSESSED. It is so delicious.

This was a ginger cookie with REAL chunks of ginger! I also purchased a golden raisin and fennel baguette which we paired with Pumpkin goat cheese… and let me tell you it was a real dream.img_0814

Dinner party thrown by my amazingly talented friend. The cheese board started it all!

Finally tried Brown Sugar Kitchen last weekend. Everyone that worked there was super friendly but I have to say that I wasn’t overly impressed with the food! Maybe it was too hyped up – I still think you should try it, but have realistic expectations.

Went to a Pumpkin Patch, it is definitely easier to get Pumpkins at the grocery store but much more fun to go to the patch!

I have been working out at my company’s baby gym and loving it. It is nice not fighting for equipment!

Loved this Stone Collab.  It is from last year…so if you haven’t tried it yet I highly reccomend you do! img_0867

Fall Back

I tend to be more of a spring forward gal myself but I am trying to get more on board with wearing flannel and curling up at home with a good book reality show.  I do not love that it gets dark now at 5:30pm but I am trying to adjust.  Here is what I have been doing!

I try not to get all pumpkin crazy, but Rouge’s Pumpkin Patch Ale is in a class all its own. If you see the bright orange bottle I suggest you pick it up.

IMG_4109 More pumpkin carving. I am not quite sure what this is or was supposed to be… looks like goblin babies inside of a skull.IMG_4111 Have you heard of the Hotel Majestic in San Francisco? I am going to go out on a limb and say that you probably haven’t in which case I am going to give you a real good tip.  This place should become the place you take any out of towner to or maybe a friends outing or date date. Whatever the case may be, Mike the bartender will show you a spectacular show and provide you with fantastic cocktails. IMG_4115 Want a spicy cocktail…? He can do that!IMG_4117 Want something sweet and sparking, he can make that too!IMG_4119 One of my favorite breweries in the city is Magnolia and a few saturdays back I was able to steward a home brewing competition.  Stewarding is a fun way to get to know more about home brewing, connect with local home breweries in your area and in this specific case have some amazing Magnolia Brews and BBQ.IMG_4122 IMG_4123 IMG_4124 IMG_4126 The Los Gatos Creek Trail  is a great place for walkers and joggers a like to get in some cardio.IMG_4127 IMG_4128 Followed by a Mocha with homemade whip cream of course! I like to live large at Great Bear Coffee.IMG_4129
