Fabulous sister Becky had her bridal shower in San Francisco this past weekend and the Jackimiec girls took over the city for a few days. Michelle, Mom and I grabbed some gourmet cuisine in the airport and made friends with a sleeping man…

We got cozy on the plane and enjoyed the sounds of a coughing man and the smells of someone’s disgusting butt in front of us.

We had a long day of flying across the country before collapsing in our beds at 2:30am after a deliriously scary drive by yours truly in a boat of a caddy. The next day we headed out over the Golden Gate to Sausalito. See it? See it? Bridge on our side…

and from a little further away… I think California’s clouds were a little confused because they hung upside down…

We had a nice lunch at Spinnaker,

We saw where Becky gets to play with rehabbed seal pups once a week…

Julie and my mom tried rehabilitating one but I somehow don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to be done…

Next up, Rodeo Beach where we found a fingernail in the sand, Julie tried to give me a rock with a smiley face made out of bird poo on it, and we dared each other to go in the freezing water with the surfers. No one volunteered.

Later, we headed for the hills and had a beautiful dinner with Becky’s future mother-in-law who loves crafting, writing about her child, and has built-in bookshelves I would have stolen if they weren’t actually, you know, part of the wall. At dinner I realized we were kindred spirits when she filled my 3rd glass of wine all the way up to the very tippy top…. it’s like we’re soul mates, me and her.

The next day, we got a suntan indoors as we showered Becky with lavish gifts of gigantic granny panties and serving spoons. Oh, and wine. Lots and lots of yummy wine.

Our new sister-in-law, Gretchen Lee, joined us for a few pics. Damn that girl needs to get a good lip and chin waxing…

We went that night to an awesome dive called the Tee Off – a fully carpeted bar complete with good food and beer pong. Ben did an awesome Eddie Vedder impression while biting my sister as she tried to slap him. Yeah, I honestly have no idea what was going on when I took this picture…

The Tee Off until 2am led to a lot of this the next day…

We had some good group calls to home where Summer insisted on showing us her feet.

And before we knew it, it was time to go home after a 2 hour flight delay.

Such a fun Jackimiec girls trip, California will never be the same.
