She had been wanting to buy some new China flats, so we decided to go to the city, even if it meant we were only going to be spending a few hours there. We took BART because it's so ridiculously convenient, and arrived there around 11. We hadn't had our morning caffeine jolts yet, so we stopped at Starbucks and fulfilled that need before walking a few blocks up Grant Street to the gate to Chinatown.

From there we continued on our way up through Chinatown and eventually landed in Little Italy. We were pretty hungry at this point, so when my seester saw a sign for paninis at Caffe Greco. I was sold. I have a tendency to avoid meat, but the panini with prosciutto, mozzarella, and peppers was making my mouth water, so I ordered that with a small Pellegrino. I polished off that sandwich.

Overall, the day was well spent. We had stopped to browse at DSW (though we didn't purchase anything) and of course the first pair of shoes I picked up ON THE SALE RACK were $300. Yes, I have good taste. Our last shopping stop was at Old Navy (twice in one month???) where my seester picked up a couple of long sleeved tees and I found a new blouse for work. It wasn't on super sale like my blue shirt was, but it was still on sale and it'll be a nice addition to my closet. Plus, I can wear my new blue shoes with them!
I always enjoy a three-day weekend, but this one was particularly good because I was able to spend some quality time with my wonderful seester. We should do things like this more often!
