‘The Work Date’ ~ Techs and the City


I remember growing up and my mom and dad were constantly saying to each other, ‘you’re running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.‘ Whether we were packing for a vacation, getting ready for school or spring cleaning; the truth is we were a family of crazy chickens. So by the time I moved out, a bit chaos with a smidge of adventure was just how I preferred life. If you’ve ever felt like this too, you can find solace in this quote by Buddha, ‘Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.’

Of course, my husband on the other hand, is 100% the total, complete, opposite. Martha Stewart would be jealous of his organizational skills. So when we were back in SF this month, I had two days in the city to get A LOT of errands done. Rather than show him my never-ending to-do list; I said, ‘I need your help with a few things today, this is going to be so fun running around the city together!’ You’ve heard of play dates, but this day was purely a ‘work date‘ in San Francisco from sunrise…


<Bright and Early!> The only thing I love about the jet lag from Zurich–>SF is for 1 week I’m wide awake and ready to take on the day at 6 am. After replying to a few emails and checking out my daily dose of fashion bloggers – many who were at NYFW with their own ‘meetings’ that sounded much more exciting than my day – but here we go.  First, a quick walk to Jamba Juice in my Northface fleece and makeup free face. Pics unavailable. 


 <Fifi is Back in Action> No parking ticket…Yes! I love Fifi, my little Fiat, in SF. She makes my life so much easier zipping through the city finding parking in a snap. It was off to Copy World in The Dogpatch where I’ve gone for years to print all my business cards, brochures and press kits.


<Handle with Care> The next stop was one of my favorites, The Packaging Store, in SF where I order all my packaging materials for Savvy Sleepers. I promised we’d grab a coffee after if he helped me pick out tissue paper and stickers.


<Wallee Time> After the long morning, he really needed to get out, take a breather, and stretch his legs. After all, Wallee is the CEO of The City Supply Co. Apparel.


<Live – Love – Life > Meeting for an upcoming (hopefully) project to be filmed by one of the best videographers in San Francisco, Live Life Company. Last meeting before lunch.


<Take Me Down to South Park> If you’ve never been to this little hidden park in SOMA a couple blocks from AT&T Park, check it out. I met my brother and a few friends for a meeting about a new fashion start-up. I had the cobb salad and a side of app chat.


<Time to hit the Road!> A couple more stops in Marin and we were off to Mendocino County. After a morning like this, guess who was more than happy to hop in the car for a 2 hour drive to his in-laws? Success!  

That’s it for this episode of ‘Techs in the City.‘ Hope you have a great weekend!
