Holiday lights are pretty and other deep thoughts


Yeah, so, because we live in San Francisco, mighty, mighty good man David and I don’t know jack about the hotels here. Apparently, the hotels in San Francisco go all out during the holiday season.

We met our friends John and Julie, and their boys, Graham and Jamie, at the Hyatt Regency on the Embarcadero. They have a truly lovely set up with a huge tree, lights hanging from the ceiling and a massive Christmas Village that includes a train.

There was a lot to look at, so Calvin was in heaven.


Looking at the lights together.

I love the holiday season, and it was passing me by a little bit this year. I’m so glad that we met up with John and Julie and had a cocktail and checked out the festive setup. I think it’s just what I needed.

Speaking of getting into the holiday spirit, my sister Michelle bought me this bottled mulled wine last year, and after our visit to the Hyatt, I was finally feeling festive enough to open it. I was pleasantly surprised. It tastes a lot like the mulled wine I got all over Paris when we went on our honeymoon during the holiday season in 2010. She bought it at Cost Plus, so if you are in the mood for some tasty mulled wine, the Gluhwein Wintersaison German Mulled Wine is a good one. It’s super easy to make … you warm it up and drink it. Easy booze is my favorite booze.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
