Farewell And Kudos

I finished Game Of Thrones last week. Can we please talk about the Red Wedding? I’ll stop there because it was too much for me to handle!

This weekend has been non-stop, I’m happy I finally have a chance to just relax and do nothing all day. In fact, I just woke up from a nap that gave me a migraine; perhaps, this was a trade off for trying to sleep during the day. Silly me.

My roommate and friend of over two years is leaving San Francisco next week to start law school in DC. Saying all of us will miss him will be an understatement. To celebrate, we threw him a farewell party at the Cigar Bar and Grill in the Financial District. I didn’t feel like bringing the old ball and chain (my camera), which I immediately regretted. It would of been awesome to be able to document our night, especially our cool private room that had a pool table just for us. Instead, my memories were left with a few iPhone pictures.

The only one that didn’t become an Instagram video or embarrassingly blurry and dark was one of my two friends and I.

Yep, I have gorgeous friends!

We stayed until the late hours of the night and a few cigars might of been rotated between everyone. They don’t call it the cigar bar for nothing.

Saturday, after an early and long day of work, Chi and I drove out to Los Gatos, CA to meet everyone to celebrate our friend D completing her masters!


There were close to 100 people in attendance! To feed all these people, they hired a taco guy to help out with the hungry stomachs.


I got there around three, and had not ate the whole day, so he was the first guy I paid a trip to when we got there. I ordered two tacos and a side salad to pull me over until dinner time. I’m so spoiled by Toma tacos, because these bad boys just weren’t cutting it for me.


The girls and boys split up. When we were walking to get something from the car, we came across a gaggle of geese blocking our road. It was a pretty intense few minutes as we figured out a way to maneuver the animals to get to the other side. We have heard rumors that these geese were really vicious and would not hesitate to chase you if you came to close to the babies. Let’s give thanks that I made it out alive from that situation.


On our way back to the area, we found all the boys playing horseshoe. Chi looks like a professional, no? Look at that angle and look of determination. He ended up winning by one point, sorry Abs!


Brenda, from Bravo Image, took a group picture of our little group. Our graduate, D, is the beauty in the green dress.


It also felt nice to see so many familiar faces!

On our way to her grandma’s house to hang by the pool, Chi pulled over so fast and scared me. I asked him what the hell he was doing and he pointed to this sign.


There are no DQs in/near San Francisco and both of us never tried it before. I actually walked in with no expectations and was surprised by the vastness of their menu. We asked the cashier what to get and she basically made us get a Blizzard.


I’m not a fan of those kind of drinks, but Chi finished it before we even got to our destination.

Sunday, I spent the morning volunteering and came home to watch American Psycho. I think I confused it with plain ol’ Psycho, because it was not exactly what I expected. The weather dropped from 80s to low 50s in less then 24 hours. It even started sprinkling at some point during the day.

My work schedule is also a lot lighter this week, so I think I’ll have plenty of time to cook.

Some ideas for the week-



  • Flatbread Pizza
  • Caprese Salad
  • Veggie and Hummus Sandwich
  • Chorizo Lentil Soup (recipe coming Wed!)


Of course, sprinkle a few snacks in between. I have been obsessed with my garlic parmesan dip with Social Snackers from TJs!

What’s on your agenda this week? Do you prefer warmer or cooler days?
