Life. 365-Style (10/22-12/2).

Welcome to the new digs, folks. I’m still getting the actual chiknpastry.com site moved, but will be posting here from now on. It’s cheaper ;).

Below are a good months+ worth of shots. I’m ready for the year to be over so I can stop having to take a picture every day. It’s a lot of work. ha!

295 – Chris was mid-dance here. Lumberjack-style, no less.

IMG_3451
296 – I had to lecture to a group of genetic counseling students at Stanford. It felt nice to be back! But sad, too.

IMG_3452
297 – Sunset over Dolores Heights. These after work runs are harder with the sunset being earlier and earlier.

IMG_3455
298 – a much-needed Friday happy hour!

IMG_3462
299 – pumpkin carving at Liz+Kevin’s house. my first time, if you can believe it. Not sure how I’ve never carved a pumpkin before….

IMG_3464
300 – caramel chicken. this was good stuff.

IMG_3465
301 – Sasha continues her quest to lick all plastic in the house.

IMG_3467
302 – waiting for the bus in The Mission.

IMG_3470
303 – boots. (and yes, I forgot to take a picture so I just snapped the first thing I saw before I went to bed.)

IMG_3472
304 – I’d never seen this movie before. Now, I know why.

IMG_3474
305 – I think this was an 80’s flick like Breakfast Club. I can’t remember…but when I took the picture I thought it was really cool.

IMG_3475
306 – hangin’ at Liz/Kevin’s. For the first time in ages, I totally rocked it at Hearts. #cardshark

IMG_3476
307 – Sasha loves the stairs in our entryway. Every time we open the door, she runs out and up and down the stairs.

IMG_3477
308 – the view from orientation. Not bad on a clear day, except I was only allowed outside for a few minutes.

IMG_3478
309 – You’re jealous, aren’t you, ladies?!

IMG_3481
310 – the first of many Korean-spiced pork burgers. I made a batch of 30 and froze individual patties. Tell me that’s not a smart idea!

IMG_3482
311 – grilled cheese and tomato soup – the ultimate in comfort food.

IMG_3484
312 – A Friday dinner at a new spot in town called TBD – this was their wood stock. It was nice, but not nice enough to get proposed at over dinner. That totally happened to the girl beside me. Her husband was lame, but her ring was gigantic. If only that balanced out…

13 – Chris getting excited about a bottle of wine from Deerfield.

IMG_3492
314 – I searched high and low for all the ingredients for this Indian dish, chaat papdi. It was worth it, though. Like a burrito bowl in India, pretty much.

IMG_3494
315 – It feels good to book vacation! Now May needs to hurry up and get here.

IMG_3504
316 – banh mi pizza? totally. I’m all into the cross-cultural dishes this week.

IMG_3505
317 – another episode of plastic-licking

IMG_3506
318 – finally settling in to my new office – with a window!

IMG_3508
319 – another Friday happy hour, this time at Rye.

IMG_3511
320 – the last backpacking trip of the year. we even packed the heavy sleeping bags, and we certainly needed them!

IMG_3521
321 – deer yoga?

IMG_3523
322 – I can’t believe it took us almost three years of living here to see Brett Dennen. He’s one cool dude.

23 – rain in SF is like snow in North Carolina – it happens so infrequently that people absolutely can not drive. hence the red traffic lines – worst commuting day so far at my new job, but it still took less time than a good day at my old one!

IMG_3527
324 – I finally dug back into the archives and made my version of pad Thai. Such a tasty dish.

IMG_3528
325 – Having my old coworker Frannie as a friend means that she calls, I answer. I’m always available for an after-work cocktail, even if I show up in running clothes ;-).

IMG_3529
326 – pizza take-out night called for a stop to pick up a bottle of my favorite condiment, ranch dressing. Pizza crusts never tasted so dang good.

IMG_3530
327 – not a bad view for an afternoon run, eh? this was taken along the east side of the city, in Mission Bay.

IMG_3538
328 – the shortest Stairway Walk of them all, in Sunnyside. This was taken at the conservatory.

IMG_3539
329 – Chris’ version of tools.

IMG_3541
330 – I took a slightly different running path and ended up seeing a great view of Twin Peaks and Sutro Tower.

IMG_3542
331 – We are headed to Seattle for Thanksgiving! My first time ever flying first class (it was just ok). And what you see Chris eating is his worst mistake – a gigantic hotdog the day before a feast. I totally told him so, too.

IMG_3548
332 – Cheryl and I made name cards while the adults made dinner. Does Chris’ picture look like a Pilgrim, or Walter White?!

IMG_3555
333 – What does a nosey pepper do? Get jalapeño business. And in my beverage. BOOM.

IMG_3557
334 – How do 6 of us get around together? Why, we just cram into 1 small car and smile. Plus, we got plenty of nice fresh air while out hiking that day. A little snuggling never hurt anyone!

IMG_3571
335 – Luke’s wallet. I think Cheryl bought this for him the first year they started dating. Which was forever ago.

36 – This was my view for my 500th mile in 2013!! I thanked Jennifer for ensuring that Seattle would be sunny that day.

That’s it for now! Only another month of these pictures to go!
