yesterday i spent the afternoon at the de young with some friends. i was waiting for the david hockney exhibit for a couple of months so i was really excited to check it out. it was amazing! seriously, i was smiling the whole time. as a matter of fact, i think i’m going to have to check it out a second time before the exhibition ends in january. going to museums is a favorite pastime of mine. therefore, i finally took advantage of the teacher discount and got a membership to the de young and the legion of honor. now i can go as often as i want and special exhibits will not cost nearly as much. also, i figure when i start graduate school (still applying… stressful)  i can study at the cafe and then walk around the museum afterwards. win/win.

i thought this graphic rainbow colored painting was the perfect backdrop for an outfit shot. ah, i wish i could hang it in my apartment. anyway, i’m off today so it’s time to take advantage of the weather and go for a hike. tata!

well so long 2012 and hello 2013! i have to say 2012 was quite a good year for me filled with several firsts. i ran my first sf half marathon and bay to breakers race, started this little blog, brian and i celebrated our ninth year of marriage, and started teaching the ap literature class which i thoroughly enjoy. i’m looking forward to the new year too. being the goal oriented person that i am i have some goals i would like to accomplish this year: a blog redesign (have no clue at this point as to how or when), another big run (i’m not sure i can commit to a full marathon but i’m thinking about training for one… if not, another half for sure), and i want to strengthen my ap lit and comp curriculm. oh, and brian and i would like to start playing music together again. lots of plans so we shall see what pans out but i’m excited nonetheless. now, it’s time to head out to golden gate park for my friend’s birthday picnic. happy 2013!

outfits notes: 1) i’m obsessed with rust. 2) i got these olive booties 45% off of the sale price at anthro… yes! 3) this was my new year’s eve outfit. tata!
