Sushi, Ice Cream & Other Cute Things

Happy Monday, all!

I had such a fun weekend! It started with dinner with my girlfriends from college at my favorite sushi restaurant, Tataki. It’s sustainable and amazingly delicious! It just melts in your mouth, yum! I love sushi, but hardly ever eat it for sustainability reasons, so this was a real treat. Of course, I had to take a few pictures!

So good! Oh, and here’s a goofy pic of my side of the table. The rest were way too silly (or just plain bad/embarrassing) to post! πŸ˜‰

Saturday, I headed up to Sebastopol, a small town in Sonoma County where I went to high school, for the Apple Blossom Parade and festival. I brought my roommate and future roommate-in-law, Jaime and Chris of Wedding Road Trip. Check out their blog, it’s awesome! We had a great time watching all the silly parade floats and eating apple pie. But the best part was a stop at the best homemade ice cream place in the world, Screamin’ Mimi’s. I’m telling you, if you ever find yourself in Sonoma Country, it is a must- try! My favorite is Mimi’s Mud: espresso ice cream, homemade fudge, chocolate chips and chocolate sandwich cookies. To die for! I also had a bit of creme de menthe and Galaxy, a chocolate chip that is out of this world (har har har). And I was so excited to see their new packaging – compostable bowls and spoons!

I also stopped in an adorable store, Shiki Monkey, and finally got the bag I was lusting after the last time I visited. Check it out – isn’t it so cute? It’s made by Bungalow 360 out of organic canvas! I was seriously so excited after buying this and couldn’t stop talking about it! I also got a matching clutch I’m totally taking to bars. Hey, recycling goes with everything!

Bungalow360 uses solar energy and hybrid cars, recycles and reuses, and donates a portion of their proceeds to animal rescue charities. How cool is that?

On Sunday, I BARTed over to the East Bay for lunch with my sister – an amazing dungeness crab, avocado and pepper jack sandwich. So good! Then we spent the day thrift shopping for some new (used) clothes for her new job as an Education Coordinator at a succulent garden! I was her Personal Thrift Shopper and it was a ton of fun – she was surprised at how much she liked the stuff I picked out for her. πŸ˜‰ She ended up getting 2 pairs of jeans (Express and Bebe), a Bebe dress, a sweater and four shirts for $110. We were shocked at the total – such a good deal! Buying used is totally win-win.

    Your weekend sounded just perfect! I can’t even look at that sushi without going crazy because I can’t have it!! Two more months! Mmm, and Mimi’s Mud. And Galaxy. Remember the cajeta flavor? I am dying over here of food envy. I love your life, keep sharing with us πŸ™‚

    Aww, thanks, Jaime! Ooh, I don’t remember that flavor but I do remember people trying (and failing miserably) to pronounce guanabana, haha. She had a rose flavor this weekend that my friend got, and it was delish!

    Two more months, two more months and you can have all the sushi and deli meat (and whatever else they make you give up!) you want!

  3. I want an envirosax so bad! I’m gonna have to break down and buy one! Looks like an awesome weekend…jealous of the sun and green we are still cold and brown.

  4. That SERIOUSLY looks like an awsome weekend. You know, last year around this time I went with my boyfriend to SF for a day trip (we were visiting my brother in Santa Cruz) and it wasn’t a great experience, partly because I’d only been to SF a few times as a kid, so I didn’t know all the good places to go. We did some touristy things and called it a day. He was not impressed, and I was bummed I didn’t show him how cool SF can really be. Too bad I didn’t have your blog to read back then for suggestions!

    Laura, they are pretty cute! I just got a new one by a brand called Baggu that I’m trying out right now if you come across those.

    Hallie, it was pretty great! You’ll have to come back to SF so I can show you around! There is a ton of great stuff to do but sometimes you just have to know where to look. Oh and I am coming to SD in late June, I think, so we have to meet up if you are free!

  6. Was such a amazing time! I love your new bag- and your new clutch. Looks like Sunday was pretty great too πŸ™‚ Insert cheesy phrase… “it’s FUN to be pretty green!”

    The Bungalow 360 site says that bags was seen in I Love You, Man! You just got it because you love anything related to Paul Rudd, didn’t you? =)

  8. janeterin

    Oooh, what scene was it in? I didn’t even realize, but maybe that’s subconsciously why I love it so much. It’s true, I heart Paul Rudd. I loved the movie, too!

    jaime, I agree, a fab time was had by all. Esp. rocking out to the Backstreet Boys on the way back!

  9. MMMM That looks amazing!! I’m definitely telling my sister (who lives in Alameda) to hit up Tataki!

  10. oh.my.goodness. your description of that ice cream is killing me!! you DEFINITELY managed to have a fun-packed and deliciously green weekend πŸ™‚
