“Brieing” Is a Thing, Folding Fitted Sheets, and More (Friday Faves 6.22.18)


Last weekend I received tickets to attend a private showing of The Incredibles 2 with my family at the Metreon in San Francisco through Kango and Chrysler, who sponsored the event. It was a fun surprise and a really nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Kango partnered with Chrysler to provide low-cost leases of the Hybrid Pacifica minivans to eligible drivers, and this event was one of the ways they were spreading the word about the first-of-its-kind partnership. I used to live in SoMa before the Metreon was redone to include Target and tons of restaurants. The transformation of that area is really amazing. Yerba Buena Gardens, right behind the Metreon, is one of my favorite spots in the city: the outdoors meets beautiful architecture. Go enjoy it, if you haven’t been up there in a while! 

How did you spend Father’s Day? The gift I got for my husband, a custom embroidered sweater from HSH Interiors, was a success! I had our kids’ and my initials subtly embroidered onto the sleeve. 

It would feel strange not to mention the immigration issues that have been in the news all week. I can’t get political here, but my heart goes out to all the families who have been affected.

This weekend, we’re laying low. What about you? Here are some things I saved over the week to share with you. Happy Friday!

Fantasy vs. Real World

This photo album of a mom recreating celebrity’s Instagram photos cracks me up every time. It’s a good reminder that a lot of what we see on social media and television is very, very staged!

House Goals

This gorgeous, historic mansion in Pacific Heights is on the market for $30 million. It was fully renovated with a retractable roof on the top floor, but they kept the historical integrity of the building. I mean… talk about house goals. Anyone want to go in on it with me? 

Cousin Love

We don’t live near family, so this article struck a chord with me. It’s all about the benefits of raising kids near their cousins. What do you think? 

Watch Your Brie

I thought this was a fake article, like from The Onion, but apparently, this is a thing.  Have you heard of “brieing?” It’s when middle-aged women trip on the drug Molly by putting it into brie cheese. I’ll stick with wine, thanks. 

In case you missed it, here are the week’s posts from San Francisco Moms Blog and Mid-Peninsula Moms Blog.

Inger spent a ton of time in traffic over Memorial Day (like, three hours to go ten miles), so she got well acquainted with the features of the GMC Yukon Denali that she test drove for us. Here’s what she had to say.
