Good to be home

After a week of catching up on sleep, getting over my cold, and catching up on everything that I dropped for 10 days (cleaning, laundry, shopping, etc...), the weekend came!

This weekend was nothing short of perfect.  Not only the weather, but the company and activities.  Saturday Scott and I decided that it would be a great day for a trip to the Presidio Golf Course to hit the driving range.  So, we put on our country club best and headed to the course.  My first few shots were nothing short of horrendous and I am sure everyone was thrilled I was taking up a spot on the range.  But, after a little coaching (thanks, Scott) I was able to consistently make contact and even get my right-shank under control.  While I still have a LONG way to go I made huge improvements and I am looking forward to getting back out there...maybe I will even brave 9 holes next time!  

What is a little golf without a trip to the Presidio Golf Course Cafe for a beer?  There is something about "country club food" that I just love.  Burgers, chicken sandwiches, club sandwiches, fries, etc...  It hits the spot!  

The rest of the day was full of couch time.  It was nice to be able to just relax together after the hectic past two weeks. Oh, we also watched Baby Mamma.  Actually not half bad and much different than I expected.  Good laughs...

Sunday, the fun continued (with a nice sunburn from Saturday's events).  We needed to get to Macy's to update the golf wardrobe and I even got a present!  Scott was finally at the end of his rope with my sunglasses so I got a new pair.  You see, every time I smiled in my old ones my cheeks would push them up and off my nose.  Come to find out, this is a problem I have with a lot of sunglasses so I ended up with a new pair of aviators.  

After good conversation and a few glasses of wine at the Cheesecake Factory (overlooking Union Square) we picked up Lola dog and headed to Dolores Park.  
As you can see, A LOT of people had this idea

Just what I needed after a week in the wind and rain.  I am a bit bummed that this is about as good as it gets here in San Francisco.  While I won't miss the 100+ degree days in Boulder a few in the 90s would be very welcome during the summer months.  Oh well, I will just have to hold out for our Hawaii trip in August!!!
Some bubbly in the park.  What a life!

It was a great weekend and I am already anxious for next weekend to get here...hopefully the weather is as nice (my skin actually ended up slightly darker than pasty white after all the outdoor events)!
