What Is The Etymology Of "Picnic"?

Happy Valentine's Day! Single or not, I've always liked Valentine's Day. It's totally what you make of it and it's just a fun commercial holiday over all. Nothing says "fun" like tacky decorations and cavity inducing sweets. Since Marc and I both work today, we decided to celebrate V-Day yesterday afternoon by having a picnic at the park... Tanner-family style!

I loved Full House growing up. We made our way to Alamo Square Park and enjoyed the view of the painted ladies that were made famous by the early 90's sitcom. I would die to live in the Full House house. The funny thing is, Alamo Square Park is one of the lesser known parks (compared to Dolores or Golden Gate) despite of the popularity of the show, but I think it's one of the prettiest.

Mmm... Of course we needed dessert, right? I have such a sweet tooth, it's ridiculous.

By the way, shout out to the sunshine for staying out till Sunday. San Francisco has been extremely spoiled by this nice weather we've been having. I'm finding it hard to believe that it is mid February. Sooooo excited for summer! Hope everyone has a lovely Valentine's Day, whatever you decide to do!

On another note: I have a couple posts coming soon for the "Local Flavor" section, one of them being my first item from 7x7's Magazine lists of 100 Great Eats. Check it out!



  1. Aw, this was a really great post. In theory I'd like to write like this also - taking time and real effort to make a good article... but what can I say... I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done.

  2. so like when u post your delicious food pics please tell me where you get it from? like those desserts. :)
