Dracula sucked the life out of me this weekend. Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but I did feel like I spent the majority of my free time reading. Let's just say that Count Dracula is a lot different than Edward Cullen. While I wasn't consumed by literature, I... had some of the best pizza I've eaten since I was in Italy. Oakland's Pizzaiolo does it right.


reminisced about Florence with some friends over chianti and lemon pasta (coming soon!)


went to my very first ballet-- Swan Lake. It was a little weird seeing this side of the story after watching Black Swan, but it was still really lovely and elegant. Raine and Mina are on their way to becoming ballerinas.


ate "America's best English Muffin," from The Model Bakery, brought down all the way from Napa by sweet Jenna.

had a celebratory brunch with the roommates, complete with bellinis and mimosas.

portobello + mozzarella + sundried tomatoes

and spent lots of time goofing around with this little cutie pie while my sisters bought their Toms.

Favorite Raine-quote from this weekend:

Celeste: Raine, when's your birthday?
Raine: When I turn 4!

Of course.
