Happy Tuesday!

I am so excited. Just one more day of work and then it’s time for vacay!

At this moment, I’m still not sure what the weather will be like in Denver. We’ve been checking the weather forecast for days now, and it’s constantly changing. One hour it’ll say there’s snow, the next it’ll rain, and later it’s sunny. So now, I’m packed for all sorts of weather.

It also means that my duffel bag is super packed and heavy for a trip that lasts just a few days.

If you have any more recommendations for Denver, I’d love to hear them!

Destination: Carnival Imagination to Ensenada

I’m sharing more stories and photos from my trip to Ensenada back in February.

Be warned. This post is going to be filled with photos. =)

After Kim (from Sweet Kimplicity)and I stopped in Solvang, we continued down to Long Beach to board the Carnival Imagination, a cruise headed to Ensenada. Since I haven’t been to Mexico, I was super excited. But the truth is, half a day in Ensenada isn’t enough to explore a different culture and experience the beauty of a foreign, which means I have to make plans to go back.

The other day on my way to work I saw this on the window of Sugarfina. Green juice gummy bears! At first I wondered whether the gummy bears are supposed to be healthy or if it’s just supposed to taste like green juice. But reading about these gummy bears online, I think it’s supposed to be healthy. So now I’m so curious about them and want to try them!

It’s Wednesday, which means we’re already half way through the week!

I’m soo excited. Only one more week until vacation. This time, we’re headed to Denver. My cousin is graduating from Regis University so the rest of us decided that we’re making a vacation out of it. Because, why not?! AirBnB booked! But I’m having a little trouble coming up with things to do in Denver.

Honestly, most of the things I came up with is food related. No surprise though, right? On my list is Snooze for brunch, Root Down, Hammond’s Candies, maybe breweries, a hike? I need help! Please send me recommendations. I would love to know how to make the best of my four full days there.

In the meantime, this avocado toast with soft boiled egg <3

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? I hope you had an uneventful and restful couple of days off. We had a citywide blackout most of Friday so I ended up leaving after just a few hours and starting my weekend early. Even better? I wasn’t scheduled to work Saturday, which means it was an extra long weekend for me. Yay!

But sometimes I feel, even with the extra time, weekends pass by so quickly. While the rest of week seems to go by ever so slowly. Do you feel the same way?

Anyways, I’ve been craving acai and pitaya lately . It’s been sooo long since I’ve had either. So today, I thought I’d share with you an acai pitaya smoothie bowl, a combination of two of my favorite tropical smoothie bowls. Why do I have to choose one or the other when I can have both? Right?

Earlier this week, I met my friend Emily in the Mission area of San Francisco for lunch. We had vegetarian Japanese food, and I absolutely loved it because it was so different. It’s all about the flavor and the texture.

Emily also gave me a box of macarons from Ketsourine Macarons. These macarons are so cute! They have Belle from Beauty and the Beast, unicorns, and Pokemon! And that candle? It’s Pinot Noir.

Um, have I mentioned that I might be addicted to bread?

Give me a warm loaf of bread fresh out of the oven and I can probably sit there and devour it all on my own. I don’t need cheese or butter or balsamic vinegar or olive oil. But, you know, it doesn’t hurt to add all those extras to bread, right?

I don’t know why it took me this long to share with you this deliciously cheesy garlic bread, but it’s about time. Because when it’s this easy and this delicious, you know it has to be shared.

Destination: Solvang

Back in February, my friend Kim, from Sweet Kimplicity, and I went down to Southern California where we would board for our cruise trip to Ensenada.

I originally planned to share my stories back in February after we got back from our trip, but I had to put a pause on this blog while I dealt with grief and loss. Now that we are about to embark on another trip soon, I thought this would be the perfect time to share stories from my last trip.
