We then head outside to the car but SURPRISE there is a limo with everyone in it!!!!!! My Dad is hiding behind a car taking pictures and my Mom, Katy, Michael, Amanda, David, Katie, Gray, Mandy, Greg, Ryann, and James were all inside screaming and banging on the windows. We head to Cadillac Bar where we have a great time and sweet John treats everyone to dinner. We then go to Absolve and continue celebrating!
John and I are so excited to begin planning our wedding and the fun adventures we have ahead! We will blog throughout the process and continue to blog when we head to California in September and after!!

John has been noticing his car is hesitating to start, so I planned to go to work with him today so that we could get a new battery and oil change for our trip to Yosemite. Well we go out to the car this morning and the car won't start. We call AAA and 30 minutes later they come and actually have a battery we can buy so it all worked out. I drove with John out to San Ramon and ran around shopping. Looks like we are all set for Yosemite!! We will leave early tomorrow morning!

To do laundry we have to go downstairs to the area where I took this pic to a little shed type thing and pay $1 for washer and $1 for the dryer. This morning I went down to do some laundry... put it in, put detergent in, the money in, and it won't work. So I might end up walking to a laundromat with detergent soaked sheets to attempt to get them washed. Let's hope the handyman gets here to help!!
Yesterday I walked to Whole Foods in attempt to buy things to make a calzone...
There were no pepperonis, no jalapenos, the only pizza dough I could find was in the freezer section and a little ball that looked questionable. I miss HEB. My second attempt will be walking to Andronicos today, hopefully they will have some normal stuff. It is sad that my view of normal is NOTorganic NOT all natural and definitely NOT too good for you. HAHA oh well.

After that we took the BART to San Francisco and walked all the way to Pier 39. We ate dinner and had the most amazing little baby donuts that were covered in cinnamon and sugar.

See where it says feel men use fists, John and I thought this was hilarious. There are blockaded roads everywhere, that won't let anything but bikes go by. It is like driving around in a maze, it's funny.

I come home very very late on Wednesday. Only a little more time left, I am getting sad that our little excursion is coming to an end. But I will be back in a couple of weeks and John has tons of fun stuff he can do on the weekends.

John is having fun at work, he is getting to meet a lot of people and make a lot of good connections. In a few weeks he will be having lunch just him and the CEO of Chevron!! How exciting!

John walks up to the counter, we don't see a menu anywhere...
John "can we have a small pepperoni pizza"
Guy behind counter "no you can't for 2 reasons... 1. we only serve one kind of pizza 2. they are all vegetarian."
John "uh ok well we will take one of those"
As we sat down to eat we noticed John had on a Kreuz BBQ t-shirt and we could not stop laughing. The pizza had no sauce, and had potatoes and some other stuff on top. It was good but we wouldn't have minded some meat hahaha.

This town is a lot like Austin, very liberal and earthy. We went to find wine at about 10...
John" For a college town this place sure is deserted."
As we walk into Whole Foods...
John"oh this is where everyone is. So in Texas people go to bars in Berkeley people go to Whole Foods" Hahahahaha. It was hillarious. As far as we can tell the only grocery stores are Whole Foods and this place called Berkeley Bowl. I am hoping to go to Berkeley Bowl tomorrow, it looks cute.
Gas here is $3.13, yikes.
The "apartment?" is the third floor of a house and different people live on every floor, the second floor is vacant. There is no air conditioning so we just open up the windows and hope for a breeze. We got here at about 4ish and as we were driving around noticed the town is setup for more bikers and pedestrians than cars. Some streets are only for bikes.

We thought this was a cute little town with a lot of spas and people with their shirts off that shouldn't probably have them off.
The Chinese Theater is right across from our hotel. We lucked out and somehow got tickets for the movie that was in the main huge theater. It was really fun!!
Tomorrow we will be going to Santa Monica, Malibu, and Santa Barbara which is where we will stay the night.
Thank you so much for the comments we have fun reading them!!
We are so excited to go to LA, I have never been there and John has been for work...that couldn't have been very fun.
Not too excited about getting in the car and my booty going numb again but we have to.
We are not quite sure what time zone we are in, we thought Mountain but I think we are already 2 hours different. So we thought we were running late now we are ahead of schedule.
