Happy December!

Thanksgiving 2018

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We had soo much food for Thanksgiving and did so much shopping that I’m completely exhausted.

I finally got to try soup dumplings at Din Tai Fung.

Din Tai Fung dumplings

I’ve heard so much about this place over the years but never had the chance to go. Or more like, I didn’t feel like waiting in line for hours to eat dumplings. But since it was a weekday, and we were there around opening, the wait was just 15-20 minutes, which is reasonable to me.

The dumplings were amaaazing. There were different ones you can choose from, but I personally like the original the most. Sometimes classic is best. If you get the chance, definitely give it a try.

There’s less than two weeks left until Thanksgiving. I feel like there’s still so much to do and so much to plan. You would think that after years of doing this, we’d all have it down by now. But nope. Every year, it feels the same. That last minute rush to get everything together.

If you’re in the Bay Area and looking for a place to explore, Filoli in Woodside is the perfect place to go.

My friend Jen and I went to Filoli last Friday for a girls’ day out. I am so obsessed with architecture so I loved walking through the huge Georgian era mansion and admiring absolutely everything. And if you love gardens, Filoli has acres of gardens with so many flowers and plants.

Earlier this week, we stopped in Treasure Island to watch the sunset. Have you ever been to Treasure Island? It’s just outside of the city, and it has the perfect view of the San Francisco skyline. We’ve been lucky lately with the weather. Slightly warmer days with clear skies. So it’s the perfect time to catch the sunset. Can you spot the Golden Gate Bridge in the background?
