On Friday evening I discovered that I unexpectedly was not scheduled to work Saturday or Sunday. I quickly thought that I should take advantage, since it is unlikely I will have two days off in a row again any time soon. So, I took a little trip to visit a couple of my friends and bridesmaids in Pittsburgh! They start classes tomorrow and recently moved into their new apartment, so I got to pretend (very briefly) that I too was going back to school and not an old grown up lady. The trip was very nice, I got a couple belated birthday gifts, ate at a restaurant in Oakland I'd somehow never been to before, hung out on the fire escape, chatted with some of the drunk neighbors (they decided to salute me when I told them I was married and husband is in the Army), helped steal a desk off the street in the middle of the night, soaked up some sun in the backyard, had some drinks, played some games, decorated some cupcakes, laughed a lot, and avoided having to parallel park. Good times all around!
Christy made this. Isn't it awesome?!
Oakland has a lot of charm. and trash.
