Frisco in Pictures . . . May 2014

Frisco Collage_thelookbookphilosophy.com SFCollage2_thelookbookphilosophy As always, my trip to San Francisco was a blast. There isn’t much I don’t love about this city (aside from how expensive it is and the cost of parking when we bring our car). This particular trip allowed me to explore some areas that I had not visited on prior trips. My blogging workshop was located in an area called Hayes Valley which is just under a mile from Union Square where we were staying.  It’s such a fun, colorful place! There were food trucks:: Casey’s Pizzeria truck and The Juice Shop truck and great little restaurants all around. We spent a lot of time in a little square where people were sitting on blankets and benches, some were eating and some playing with their dogs. Just a really cool place to hang and be outdoors. There was a little side street we walked down that had a lot of pretty graffiti and painted walls. I forgot the name of the street, but it is right behind where the food trucks are parked. We stopped to take a few selfies . . . or “ussies” as I like to call them. ☺ I can’t wait to go back for my birthday trip in November.

I can’t believe the end of May is nigh. This month went by so fast!  I feel like I am saying that more and more often these days! Do you guys have any weekend plans? I’ve got events planned for both Saturday and Sunday, so I will be pushing the limits of introversion this weekend. Lol! But what’s life without a challenge right? ☺ Have you set any challenges or goals for yourself this weekend? If not, give yourself one or two. It always feels so good to be able to do things with purpose and knowingly accomplish something.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Octavia+Hayes1_thelookbookphilosophy.com Have you ever had pizza from a pizza truck? I love the look of the truck, and of course the chic color choice of gray and white. I should have checked to see if they had gluten free pizza! (although that would kinda take the fun outta eating pizza from a truck!)
