I am supposed to post this entry before my Banff road trip since the actual trip was in January. The reason I delayed posting this is because I was back into crocheting and making amigurumi earlier this year (see my other blog Crafty Peachy Bunny). I am blessed that I actually sold some of my amigurumi and crochet baby booties to my friends. So far, the feedbacks were good and hopefully, I can have a small business on my own in the near future 🙂 *cross my fingers*

My trip to San Francisco wasn’t really a vacation. My hubby had to attend a training at his company HQ in San Francisco for about 4 weeks! Drat… it sure was super long and I missed him so bad… So, that’s why at the weekend of the 2nd week after he left Vancouver, I flew to SF to spend time with him and explore the city a bit. This wasn’t my first time visiting San Francisco. Back in 2007, me, my-now-hubby, and his friend had a road trip to San Francisco, LA, and Las Vegas. Ah… I was a fun memory! For this trip, I didn’t really plan to visit too much attractions since I only had 3 days to explore and I already visited most of the attractions back in 2007. Hence, I felt more relaxed this time and my main goal was to spend as much time with my dearest hubby 🙂

My flight departed at 6 AM! Yes, very very early and it was still winter time so it was still dark outside. The direct flight  from Vancouver to San Francisco took about 2.5 hours. I slept  soundly throughout the flight until the stewardess announced that we would arrived in SFO shortly. YAY! My husband already gave me a SIM card for a US cell phone provider but *silly me* I forgot to bring a pin to open the sim card slot on my iPhone. DUH!  So, I reluctantly had to sacrifice $1 to text him from my Canadian provider :S My husband booked a car online but then when we were about to pick up the car, he forgot to bring his driver licence!!!! Luckily, I brought mine and our GPS! So, I braved myself to drive from the airport to my hubby’s temporary apartment. Pfuhhh…

Feeling incredibly hungry, we tried to find the famous In-N-Out restaurant ahhahaa…. Unfortunately, it wasn’t open until later, so we stopped at Panera bread to have a quick breakfast. After resting a bit in the apartment and picked up my hubby’s driving license, we decided to go explore suburb neighborhood. To my surprise, SF traffic was way more jammed than Vancouver. We stuck in the traffic jam for about an hour and it wasn’t the peak hour! Thank God that our rental car has AC otherwise I would be toasted… and this was in January!!! When we saw In-N-Out sign near the highway exit, we immediately drove toward it to have a late lunch. Finally, my 7 years of craving was satisfied! *Okay… I might exaggerate a bit. IMO, the burger is good – better than McD – but the only thing that I truly craved for was the milkshake! I LOVE the thick-creamy-delicious milkshake!* We drove around a bit to the direction toward downtown SF. We arrived at the apartment quite late and we were already hungry again.
