Back In The Bay + Blogger Meetup!

I am back in the bay area and back to the modern world with internet access!  Thanks to all my new subscribers out there and those who followed me from Collette's Twitter Tuesday feature!  I'm so far behind on replying to my comments and visiting blogs, but I hope to catch up by the end of the week! 

The highlight of my day was actually a little blogger meetup that we had arranged a few days earlier.  I had no idea there would be so many people willing to get together out here but they were all too eager to share a few laughs over dinner and drinks at the 5A5 Steak House in downtown San Francisco.  There were 6 of us total -- Serena from SerenaEveryday, Jess from Stylepint, Pam from PamLee, Susan, Sophia from Kechiko, and me.  There was yet again so much good food and so much good conversation!  It's amazing how much we knew of each other already just from reading each other's blogs!  Here are a few parting shots:

Shooters - Hamachi
Shooters - Salmon
Beef Kebab with Ikari Aioli
Chicken Yakitori
Truffle fries
Edamame
(l -> r) Serena, Jess, Pam, Susan, Sophia, me

I had so much fun meeting up with everyone.  I was amazed at the turnout on such short notice and not to mention trudging through the rain!  Thank you so much ladies for making my annual California family reunion trip so much more fun!  ^_^
