Day Trip to San Francisco


Last week was Kaylie’s Spring Break. I wanted to make it fun so I took the week off from work and planned a few day trips. First, we went to San Francisco ~ Pier 39, Rainforest Cafe & Kinokuniya. I must say I HATE the roads in SF; they have so many one way streets AND no turns! I had to make a few big loops just to get back to where I was trying to go. That is why I’ve only driven there THREE TIMES on my own.

Pier 39

Pier 39 always reminds me of when I used to go as a kid. I loved going & I hope the girls do, too. Trish’s Mini Donuts are A MUST! There are plenty of shops and places to eat. You can see Alcatraz across the bay and watch the sea lions sunbathe. Parking, on the other hand, isn’t cheap.. it cost me $32!!

The only Rainforest Cafe close to us is the one in San Francisco. I LOVE their Rastapasta sometimes I even crave it. It’s a short walk from the Pier so anytime we go I always try and eat there. Maddie was scared almost the entire time we were dining. She doesn’t like loud noises plus it’s pretty dim inside and the scenery comes to life about every 15min. She loved the store though! Oh and I forgot to bring the hot shoe flash for my Olympus Pen so I couldn’t really take any pictures inside the dining area, ugh!

Kinokuniya was an after thought. I mentioned going to Kaylie when we were walking back to the car & she really wanted to go. So.. after a few missed streets, not finding parking and lots of extra driving we finally made it there. I thought it was going to be a lot bigger than it actually was. Don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty big especially compared to our local one that got super condensed when they relocated inside of Mitsuwa (it’s about 1/3 the size it used to be, sigh.)

Online Shopping


I finally did it! I ordered my Olympus Pen yesterday! My dad knew I’ve wanted one for a very long time & when I told him they lowered the price (by $300 & added an extra lens) he told me to order it. He’s the BEST! It should be here by the weekend which is perfect timing for Spring Break. I will definitely be using it for our mini day trips that I have planned.

I have been ordering A LOT this past week! All the things I’ve been wanting to buy that I’ve just been holding off on I ordered this week. I will be getting lots of packages in the mail that’s for sure! I’m excited to blog about all of my new purchases, too.

Kaylie had Friday off so we went to the movies & had dinner with her cousin and her mom. We saw Muppets Most Wanted. Now I will be honest and say that I really did not want to watch it. I was really surprised that it wasn’t as bad as I was dreading it would be. I was entertained throughout most of it especially since they had a slew of guest appearances. It was, however, a bit on the long side. I think it could have been 1-1/2hrs instead of close to 2. Afterwards we ate at Tomatina, an Italian restaurant. The girls had fun & it was nice to get out.

For the rest of the weekend on Saturday Kaylie had a softball game then I met my dad, brother, sis & uncle at Ikea. We ate and walked around. Today Lorina, Maddie & I checked out the new Walmart Neighborhood Market that just opened up this week. Then Kaylie, Maddie & I met my dad, brother & sis at Mitsuwa and Kinokuniya. Had dinner at Happi House then went to visit my mom at the Rehabilitation Center she’s at.
