Wow, I can't believe it's been over 2 weeks since I posted! Sorry about that!

Things have been crazy over here! I've been completely exhausted, and have had no energy whatsoever. My trip to San Francisco went well! The conference was great, and at an amazing place, and the food was incredible too! Gotta love a place that has desert for lunch AND dinner!

Here's the rundown of what we did in San Francisco-
Got in around 3, headed straight to Ghiradelli Square. Bought loads of chocolate, went to Cellar360 and did a wine tasting flight, and then had ice cream at the Ghiradelli soda shop. YUMMY!!! The wine tasting was absolutely incredible. For $25, we tried 5 different California Cab sauv., all of which had a retail price between $65 and $115 per bottle. The most amazing wines I've had in a very long time, and I even came home with one. Just so good! Then we went over to the cable cars and rode them up and back, headed to the hotel where we went to a restaurant across the street, that had absolutely amazing pizza. Some of the best I've ever had! Second day we went on a walking tour of Little Italy and North Beach. Had loads of different pastries, foccacia, coffee, truffles, and other things. It was great! Then, was one of my favorite parts- a trip to Artfibers. I was relatively well behaved, and spent a little, but not too much. The varieties of yarn were just incredible! I picked up 3 different silks, one of which is for my KTS4 pal. Then we went shopping in Chinatown, and had a late lunch. After that, we went back to the hotel, relaxed a little, and found a restaurant in the area for dinner (tapas!). Everything was great! I had a wonderful time, and was wishing I had more time there. Definitely have to go back again! And this time, with my hubby. But I'll definitely stay at the same hotel again- it was really nice, inexpensive, and in a great location!
