I walked around Union Square until Ben called and requested I bring home a loaf of sourdough. I had about 45 minutes to book it to the Ferry Building grab some bread and get to my hotel to catch the shuttle. Luckily, I made it icon smile Dim Sum and Den Sum

While at the Ferry Building, I picked up a salad and yogurt to have for dinner. I added a pear that I got from the Taste Pavilion and a Fiber One bar to round out the meal.

Ben picked me up from the airport last night and we caught up on each other’s weekends, hence the late post.

I have a blood test this morning and I haven’t eaten since 9:15pm last night. I’m hungry and attempting to distract myself with the internet. It’s not working.
