A little getaway

My husband and I escaped to San Francisco over the weekend to celebrate my birthday! It was such a wonderful trip. We got to shop a little, have an amazing dinner, get a massage, eat some more and wander our old stomping grounds. Most importantly we got to RELAX knowing our little ones were safe (and likely quite spoiled) at home with Grandma and Grandpa.

We stayed at Hotel Vitale. We've stayed here a few times before and always have a great experience. It's a small boutique hotel located along the waterfront. Great location and a fantastic modern/zen vibe.

We spent Saturday afternoon browsing a few shops in the Westfield Shopping Center. Had to hit up Kate Spade, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, JCrew and Janie & Jack for the kiddos.

What did I get you ask?

This fun's Kate Spade but I bought it at Nordstrom
And this fantastic black and white stripe sweater from JCrew.

And I absolutely LOVE Janie and Jack for girls. Amelia is still in the squishy baby phase so I'm still keeping her mostly in onesies and jammies...but oh my, when she gets a little older? It's ON. For now though, she gets this hat. Which of course is still too big, but should fit perfectly for summer! I'm telling you though...the patterns and colors they had available were PERFECTION.

Later that evening we went out to dinner at Twenty Five Lusk. Swanky and modern, I was totally in love with the decor. Exposed brick and wooden beams to die for, plus some pretty tasty food. We had a cocktail in the lounge...

and then enjoyed dinner upstairs.

We slept in and had a lazy breakfast on Sunday at the hotel. Then after a massage at Spa Vitale we headed over to Chestnut Street in the Marina district. We lived in the Marina for years before moving to suburbia, so it's always fun to visit our old neighborhood. We browsed around and had some yummy tacos for lunch. After lunch it was time to head home to our babies. And the best part of my weekend? The great big hug I got from Owen when we arrived home. He put his head on my shoulder and snuggled up. Nothing better then that.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
