Urban Girl Update: Stormy Skies

Summer is back in San Francisco after our brief winter preview. It's shaping up to be a very nice weekend. A nice relief after a busy week. Here's what I learned:
  • You can't just wear any old thing to an engagement photo shoot.
  • A big wind storm is sort of scary at four in the morning.
  • Opaque tights are a must for fall.
  • My wedding is almost exactly a year away. yikes!
  • Boots, pencil skirt, sweater - my favorite trio.
  • Wear a black shirt when learning calligraphy.
  • Trader Joe's has a really low price on baby artichokes.
  • Rob and I are secretly addicted to Beauty and the Geek.
  • When it doubt, take a jacket.
  • Changing the wedding date was less stressful than I anticipated.
  • A combo box from Truly Med on 16th is a little slice of heaven.
  • I like arranging with spider chrysanthemums.
  • Pushing yourself to climb harder because there is a girl your age who is crazy good at bouldering may seem like a good idea but could result in the loss of any sort of control over your arms for 24 hours.
  • I want to go to France wearing these clothes.
  • I can embroider a dishtowel with my initial and flowers in 30 minutes.
The table's all set for the LAC party tonight and Nicole is due to arrive in a few hours. Have a great weekend!

Unfortunately a lot of the best rates are already unavailable for our time frame. And since San Antonio is just a few hours drive for us we cut out flight costs altogether. Definitely not as awesome as San Francisco, but it will be fun. And we're still planning on going out west, just not in two weeks, ha.

I totally watched all of 30 Rock when I was sick last week, as predicted. :)
