Weekend Recap

Didn't have time to post yesterday, Monday's are generally filled with meetings and organizing my to do lists at work and yesterday was no exception.
What a great weekend it was! Saturday night we (me, the Babe and our friend Jadin) went to a cool Italian restaurant in Hayes Valley called Il Borgo - pretty old school, not too fancy of a menu and yummy food. We started with an antipasto platter and a bottle of wine, a great start to any meal if you ask me. I had the artichoke ravioli with a fresh tomato sauce and it was incredible. The Babe ordered linguine bolognese and the sauce tasted like it had been cooked by some one's Italian Grandmother all day. Jadin had spaghetti carbonara, which I had never had before and it was delicious, very rich and creamy! The service was great and the place filled right up during our meal - there were people waiting at the door. We decided we had to taste the chocolate gelato and the tiramisu, which were both a wonderful sweet ending to our dinner. We each had a couple bites of both and were absolutely stuffed. We took a walk around Hayes Valley afterwards and looked in all the shop windows, which is always fun!
Sunday we woke up, took the Jeep to get her oil changed and headed south to San Jose to hang out with Robin and Kenny. Robin made an incredibly wonderful breakfast - cornmeal biscuits, eggs and bacon and hot coffee. The rest of the day we just hung out, did our laundry and Robin and I watched "Twilight" while Kenny and the Babe did manly things like drain the pool, talk to the neighbor while washing his car, etc. It was such a nice and mellow day, so nice to get out of the city and hang out in a nice homey, comfortable house with great friends. We drove home in the evening and had a nice night at home before starting our work week yesterday.
Hope you all had great weekends as were surrounded by wonderful friends, we are truly blessed.

We had a great time, too! When you guys come to visit it doesn't feel like having company, and I mean that in the best sense. Everyone can just hang out, do their own thing and be themselves-that's what makes you and Tim so fabulous! Although I must say I laugh more when you are here than when I'm by myself. Skiddily be-bop a doobee doowah...
Love you!

I loved Il Borgo! We lived right down the street and this was our favorite restaurant. Try the pollo pizzaiola and the roasted broccoli if you get a chance, it's the best!
