Mother-Daughter Time in SF!

I haven't had a chance yet to post about
my little trip to San Francisco with my Little Princess.

We spent 2 days just eating, shopping,
and having fun. It's been awhile since we've
spent time together just the two of us,
so it was kinda special.

Our first night in S.F. we visited Japan Town
and looked for a nice Korean place to eat.

We found a place with a hibachi grill in our table.
Fun! You grill your own meat on it!
We had beef, shrimp and veggies...and many little
dishes of assorted Korean side dishes. It was all delish!

Okay, I admit it...the waiter put the first few
pieces of beef and shrimp on the grill and
then left for me to finish the rest.
I didn't know he wasn't going to come back
and cook the rest...

So the first few pieces got over-cooked...until I
figured out that I was supposed to take over
the cooking!
Told 'ya all I wasn't a born cook!

Then we did a little shopping. You can find
the cutest stuff in those J-Town stores for cheapo!
Here's a little lunch bag set. The utensil case even
has a set of little chopsticks!

The next day was our downtown shopping excursion.
First stop: Juicy Couture, of course!
...then to Bloomies, Pink, Abercrombie-
all just windowshopping of course!

Lunch at the Nordstrom Cafe where we had a
yummy chicken sandwich and dessert!

Summer spent all her hard-earned money,
but she got some great deals- that's my
little bargain hunter!

We cooked our own dinner at the condo so we
could go back to Japan Town for some of
this yummy-ness!

It's a fresh-made crepe with ice-cream,
whipped cream and kiwis!

Only a few small bites for lactose-intolerant Mommy.

The next morning was a little side trip on the
way home for Mommy.

It's a wonderful place called Building ReSources.
Yes, they sell architectural scrap and what not.
I was in Heaven!

Besides oodles and oodles of old doors, shutters, windows,
light fixtures,door knobs, handles, and drawer pulls etc
...they alsosell barrels of colored tempered glass....

old sinks, bathtubs and toilets!
Yah, I'll bet where you were wondering where you
can get your hands on an old toilet!

I just looked and drooled...then
made plans to bring my hubby back one day
so I can get an old beat-up door and
maybe some shutters.
