a teeny trip up to the city







We drove up to San Francisco with Oscar a couple of weekends ago and walked around Hayes Valley after lunch at Frjtz. We stopped for some French macarons at Paulette, but we ate them all before I could get some pictures. Maybe next time I'll have more self-control! Of course, I had to stop by Miette as well to admire all the beautiful packaging. So inspiring! It was a short trip since we went in between Oscar's morning and afternoon naps, but it was great to get out and walk around.

So fun! How did Oscar do? If you ever 2 companions for the city...you know where to look. :)

Also. LOVE Miette!!!! Such a happy place. My mouth totally started watering and now I want to go pick up some of the sea salt chocolate they carry!

haha traci - good question! oscar did okay for the most part while we were there. he just didn't really enjoy being in the car for that long. he started fussing 30 minutes into the ride up, but fell asleep on the ride back down.. whew!
