so, I felt super lame about halloween this year. greg and I really wanted to do a couple's costume, but with him getting a cold, us trying to save our pennies for stuff, and me desperately trying to find a costume that didn't involve him shaving his glorious beard (oh, how I love it so) it resulted in ziiiiilch. but when you're running a costume contest at work, you kinda have to dress up. so I busted out my good ole black dress and white button down and did my best wednesday addams sulk. because she's cooler than I'll ever be.

we spent our halloween eating sushi at moki, watching all the trick-or-treaters go from shop to shop on cortland avenue. then we made cookies and watched a documentary on people who make haunted houses.

Another thing I realized is that my last three halloween costumes have involved a white oxford, buttoned up alllll the way to neck. (rawr!) Greg, I promise to do my best "slutty ___" costume next year. ;)

Last weekend was the "end of quarter" party at work, so we celebrated with the amazeballs Tonayense taco truck and a printmaking class at 3 Fish Studios. I had never taken a printmaking class before and it was so much fun! both owners of the studio (hubby & wife team Eric Rewitzer and Annie Galvin) were wonderful and very patient at teaching 30+ of us how to work the machines. as it turns out, Annie is also the artist behind these "I love you California" prints that I've seen all over the mission and have been lusting after. She was nice enough to show me her studio and some of the pieces she's currently working on. We chatted about our love of Margaret Kilgallen and she her irish accent and well, I like her.

Eric showing us the magic machine that turns basically any piece of paper (a map, old textbook pages) into a sticker. 
What I made. I can't wait to frame and hang it somewhere.

I loved this "look sharp" drawing that hung above the sink in the bathroom. 
Annie's California prints. 

Then on saturday, Conner and Claire came to visit! We went to Val's (again, I know, we have a serious problem) and then hit up a haunted house park. Claire refused to go in any of the houses or wait in line with us, but we still love her. :)

I'm a total baby but I survived all the clowns and smoke and the creepy guy with a skin mask who touched me with his chainsaw. wooooo.

We spent Saturday at the Ferry Building because it was supposed to be really nice outside. By really nice I mean almost 80 degrees in a city that doesn't really use air conditioning. (SF has officially ruined me for any weather over 75 degrees) There were pumpkins and halloween decorations up but it was so freaking hot that all I wanted was a watermelon margarita. 

Spoiler alert I got one. 

Enough of this indian summer business! I don't own a fan, my apartment doesn't have air conditioning, and I feel weird eating pumpkin flavored things in the heat. It just feels wrong. 

Hope you had a good weekend, lovaaaaahs.

Happy fall! Things have been pretty quiet around here. I've been mega slacking on the blog front, not for lack of excitement, because BULIEVE me - exciting things are brewing. I just can't go and talk about them on the interwebs just yet. :) Random photos from my phone? I'd thought you'd never ask.

Date night with my red-bearded pirate. we saw Midnight Cowboy and Mary Poppins at the Castro. and we finally got a burger / milkshake session in at Val's. You remember how upset I was about them being on vacation...

Weather in San Francisco has been kinda gross lately. A lot of foggy misty days, which is great (sarcasm) for when you have bangs. 

and for every 7 foggy depressing there-is-no-way-I'm-getting-out-of-bed days, you have a day like this. 

and then you have the official beginning of fall: the return of the pumpkin spice latte. welcome back, my sweet and spicy friend.
