Today Kiersten and I were up bright and early! We ate bread bowls full of soup for breakfast then we headed off to the cable cars to go adventuring. After 20 minutes of sitting and waiting on the cable car, they told us it was down for another 30 minutes so we attempted to walk our way to China Town. We made it up 4 or 5 major hills, winded..we just waited by a cable car sign and got on the first one we saw that wasn't full! We hung around Union Square, walked around then headed back to Fisherman's Wharf to eat lunch at In-n-Out..After we ate, we took 2 busses and went off to Haight and Ashbury! (we were extremely proud of finding out way along the city). We bought organic fruits and drinks, and headed home...Even though it's still pretty early, we are wiped out from all the activities we've been doing. Tomorrow is another full day here, and we are going to attempt to go to Alcatraz!
For my brithday, my wonderful grandma sent me and my cousin, Kiersten to San Francisco! Kiersten is 5 months pregnant and cute as a button and today was her first time flying! We flew in at about 2pm today, and we've been running around all day having a blast exploring the city. We ate cupcakes at Ghirardelli square (i got pumpkin, she got banana caramel), rode the cable cars, ate at a cute diner, saw a walkathon, went to a wax museum (kind of creepy), and went to a vintage arcade.

We woke up bright and early on the 14th and I decided I wanted to spend my birthday at the beach. On the way there, I saw the off ramp to Disneyland...and said to Anton "hey, disneyland or the beach, choose now!" and we got off the freeway and headed over to the happiest place on earth! Both Anton and I have season passes, but I didn't bring mine...Dinseyland let me in anyway and we had a blast!
We got home really late and crashed into bed..The next morning I woke up to my beautiful cousin and she made me the most wonderful cupcakes.
Around my house, we all have animal nicknames..Roman is Papa Bear, Kira is Baby Lion, and I'm Mama Wolf!
At midnight on October 14, Anton woke me up with a big ol' box for my birthday! I was so excited and I had nooo idea what it could be. Please excuse these photos, I am tired and in my Pj's, i swear i don't have a crazy eye hahah =]
Aaah a new record player! I had an old one, and it sounded awful. It was slowly dying to the point that I didn't even bother to listen to it anymore. For weeks before my birthday I would search thrift stores for a new record player, and every one I would spot Anton would say "No, I don't like it" or "I doubt it works" so I would pass them up. I see why now!
Once Anton took removed my old record player off the desk and hooked in my new one he found "our" record. Come and Get Your Love by Redbone! We listened to it three or four time and I thanked him a hundred times and I nearly cried. It was such a thoughtful gift, my favorite thing to do is sew listen to my records...
Do you and your love have a special song? What is it? How did it become "your" song?
