Friday night:
what a phenomenal view from The Top of The Mark! suzanne and i were headed back to our room after walking off dinner on Chestnut at Fillmore. we found the best little pubs and bistros there. after catching a cab back to Nob Hill, we stopped into The Top of the Mark for dessert and coffee. we stayed until closing taking in the endless view, and doing what we do best... talking up storm. i love christmas in The City!!! i love that we finally planned a great girls weekend away!!

saturday morning:

we headed to the new San Francisco Centre (seen in the backgroud). it did not disappoint! we spent an hour and a half in Nordstrom's shoe department alone!!! fun, fun, fun!!! new orange crocs, and new black vans were mine for the taking!! then we rode a trolley back to our hotel. something i haven't done since childhood!! although we had to listen to a screaming preacher as we waited our turn. {{San Francisco is nothing if not liberal, and freedom of speech reigns supreme here, however loudly it may get! as he screamed his prayers for our "wretched souls", we prayed for someone to pull the plug on his amp!!}} ya gotta love this great place!!!

i love this view of the cabbies waiting to take you to any of a million great places waiting to be explored.
saturday afternoon:

after leaving the city, we headed just north to Sonoma. we met suzanne's mom at the wineries! my first time wine tasting, found me here at Viansa buying my husband a wine membership for a little Christmas surprise!! yummy good wine!!!

sunday am:

after church we went to the farmers market in campbell and ran across the most devine little shop, Garafalo's!!! the glitter gods have spread merriness all about the place!!! actaully its the work of one miss wendy addison. this place is packed with her wares!
i was in heaven here! this was definately the {{cherry~on~top}} of a fabulous weekend to my beloved San Jose, and San Francisco!!!
