Happy Sunday!

Last weekend, I was at the dental convention. While I was there, I decided to explore local small coffee shops nearby and discovered Mazarine Coffee, which has all sorts of toast that you can order. I ended up getting the Tomato, Ricotta, Basil Toast. Now I have to make it at home. =)

Oh my gosh.

This Labor Day weekend is soo busy for me. My friend is getting married on Saturday, but technically the festivities started already with rehearsals on Thursday night. I’m excited yet kind of nervous. I’ve never been part of a wedding before so I’m worried that some how some way, I’ll make a mistake, ruin the wedding, and be forever remembered for it on video. Does anyone get those types of nightmares? lol

Do you have any plans for Labor Day weekend?

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend.

Oh my gosh. The last few days have been so eventful. Dental conventions and then Eat Drink SF with my sisters and cousins. Last year, we went to the event for the first time and loved it so we wanted to go again this year.

Have you been to the Yerba Buena in SF?

This waterfall is located in the Yerba Buena gardens. Behind the waterfall is the memorial for Martin Luther King Jr. And across the street is the SF Museum of Modern Arts.

Yerba Buena Gardens

Also nearby is the Moscone Center where many conventions and conferences take place. This weekend the dental convention is in town. And I usually take a day or two to listen to lectures and browse the exhibits to learn about new products.

Omigosh. I cannot believe that we’re already half way through August. Especially since I’m already hearing my sisters and cousins talk about going back to school. It’s so different when you’re working, isn’t it? Time sort of blends together and it’s not as clear as when you’re in school where summer starts and ends.
