Lately in San Francisco...

I've been so horrible at posting! Gah. It's been so crazy around here, but I want to get better so that I can share our "new life"! Let's start with some pictures....

Our first weekend we went with a bunch of our friends from school to Off the Grid. It's a Food Truck round up like they had in Provo, so we felt right at home. We feel so lucky to have so many wonderful people in our school and ward. I love that we are going to be friends with them forever!

Tanner and I bought Public Bikes (which get to be in our bedroom, by the way), and when we went to pick them up, we saw this cool wooden structure in the middle of the street. We obviously had to leave our mark on it....

Tanner and I were able to go on a little date to try some new food and dessert in the city (there are WAY too many good places to eat here) and he took me to the Full House house. It made me so happy to stand at another place that Mary-Kate and Ashley have been! :)

We live in the Pacific Heights district which is near the water, but we are on straight hills. Most of our friends live in the Marina where it's flat, so one night we looked up at the lights in front of us, and at the tallest light (in the picture below) you can see is where we basically live. It's a great exercise on the bikes! You can't really tell that it's super steep, but.. let me tell you it is.

I haven't found a full time job yet, and I know it takes time, but I've actually been able to enjoy the city a little bit! I've been working "a couple hours" at the Gap on Chestnut, which is an awesome street filled with retail and restaurants. It's been really tough though because I've been closing every night which means Tanner and I see each other for literally two minutes and then go to sleep. It will get better though! The store is awesome because the founders actually live in the neighborhood, so they're always stopping by!

A cold and windy day at the beach is a better day than in snow! :) 

We have the prettiest houses here.

The Mrs. Doubtfire's house is right down our street! My mom came into town to help us get situated (couldn't have done it without her!) and although we didn't get to do a ton of touristy stuff, we made sure to go stop by this house! 

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse has been a place that I really love. You wait in line for cruffins (a filled croissant basically in a muffin tin) and they only make a certain amount a day!

I was pretty impressed with my awesome parallel parking.

MarLeice came to visit before they moved in (which is the apartment above us by the way-it's awesome) and we got to share a lot of yummy food together. ;)

More treats...

More pretty houses...

Tanner and I were able to walk down to the wharf one Saturday night and we hit up In N Out. It definitely was a different experience, but we still love that place.

Also, my friends changed the picture, and now I can't help but see this picture every time now. Too funny!

We have pretty views on our street!

Unfortunately we got to experience being true San Franciscans quite early on. We got a lot of stuff stolen, and it was such a violating feeling. I pray every day walking to my car that it's ok. We think it's because we had our Utah plates still, so after going to the Dmv LITERALLY ten times, we got new plates. So happy! And I don't even want to go into that whole Dmv story, because it's exhausting.

We have a market the street over that sells our favorite ice cream, and we are both ice cream addicts. It may become a problem, but we never see our husbands, so you gotta do what you gotta do..

We went to the Ferry Building's Farmer's Market on one Saturday, and it was so fun! It reminded me of the Chelsea Market in New York City, but not as big. We could go back every week and discover something new!

I stopped by Goodwill in one of the hippy areas, and we got to go in some awesome thrift stores. I wanted to renew my vows in this Hollywood Glam dress, haha!

The dental students had a boat cruise retreat on Saturday night, and they had the best views! They pulled up by AT&T park and got to see a homerun!

Last night I really was craving Utah. I made swig cookies and dirty diet cokes and it was awesome!!!

We are having a lot of fun here, and can't wait for even more fun!


  1. AT&T park for a Giants game is a must! I grew up going to that park and it's so fun! How were the cronuts? I've always wanted to try that place!

    1. We will make it there some day... Tanner is a Dodgers fan....! The cruffins are AMAZING!

  2. San Francisco looks like sooo much fun! So sad about your car :( I think that's what would scare me most about living in a big city would be worrying about people stealing my stuff all the time.
