Spring Break '13

Thankfully I'm not too far behind since spring break wasn't that long ago for me, but I wanted to give a recap of the random things I did over break.
I've never been one of those people to actually go anywhere for spring break. I usually spend it at home by myself watching movies and sleeping. This year Michael and I planned a trip up north to Santa Rosa to visit his old neighborhood and go hiking.
But first we had a Sharks game

The next day we headed up north
...and tried out these delicious chips
These things are like crack
...we saw Google's self-driving car
...and the Golden Gate in fog (what a surprise)
Once we got up to Windsor we stopped at Johnny Garlic's for lunch
 Rosemary foccacia with onions
 Flash-fried bad but so good
My veggie burger w/ garlic potato chips
Michael's pesto pasta w/ Caeser salad
After lunch we went to Powell's Candy Store for candy (duh) and gelato
White chocolate & raspberry gelato, my first one ever!
Our haul from Powell's
Enjoying the sunshine
Once we ate our gelato and mapped out where we were going, we headed out to a winery for wine tasting
It was so good and so much fun!
We headed to our hotel to check-in before heading out to dinner. I don't usually post pictures of my hotel room, but this room was just gorgeous
 The bathtub even had jets, I just wanted to live there
And we even had a little balcony overlooking the courtyard.
It was by far the most gorgeous room I've ever stayed in. If you're ever in Santa Rosa, stay at Hotel La Rose

The next day we had planned on going for this awesome sounding hike, but Michael hurt his foot so hiking was out of the question. Instead we decided to head into San Francisco to go to the zoo.
Plus it was just gorgeous!
The animals were so cute, but a lot of them weren't out. We were there in the middle of the week so that's probably why. It was nice to just relax and enjoy some free time, unfortunately the clouds started rolling in and it dropped a good 10 degrees quickly. We both headed back to the car and made our way home along the gorgeous Highway 1

After we made it home we turned around the head right back out to one of the best hockey games I've ever been too. There were some good fights and lots of tension which was pretty entertaining.
In the end I had a pretty awesome spring break and by far one of the best ones yet.
