I feel like I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off for the last two months. I moved from DC to Miami, started my new job, went hiking across the Swiss Alps with my father for two weeks, went to visit my family in Sarasota, had the boyfriend’s family visit us in Miami, and now I’m in San Francisco for work training!
Phew. Typing that just exhausted me.
I need another cup of coffee…
So what (besides all of the above) have I been up to lately?
CARRYING my new S’well bottle everywhere I go. This thing is like my baby, I’m obsessed. Plus I got the extra large size (25 oz.) which can hold a LOT of water (or a whole bottle of wine in the case of an emergency… pretty much the real reason for buying this size)! #winning
WEARING my new favorite cat-eye sunnies c/o Makemechic! They are a pair of fun sunglasses I can wear around town, to brunch, or even to look fancy doing my grocery shopping. And their $14 price tag made them irresistible!
READING The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls and am weirdly hooked! This would never be a book I would select. I’m all about colorful covers and an uplifting storyline or thriller… not usually memoirs about homelessness. But I had a dear friend who I trust with all my heart when it comes to books recommend it to me so I had no option but to pick it up. I shall keep you all posted!
TRAVELING to San Francisco! As I write this I’m in SF exploring California for the first time! Although by “exploring” I really mean sitting in conference rooms for work. But I do get free time at night to explore! Anyone have restaurant recommendations?
P.S. They said it’s “summertime” here not and the weather is “beautiful”… This Florida girl is freezing!! 60’s doesn’t count as summertime!
DREAMING about the amazing french breakfast I had at La Boulangerie Boul’Mich on Key Biscayne last weekend. The softest bread, fresh squeezed orange juice that smelled like you were standing in an orange grove, and the most delicious guava and cheese stuffed croissant (pictured is a box filled with another one to go). You will most likely find us there every weekend morning from now on!
EATING (as seen on my Instagram) Halo Top birthday cake ice cream <3 Make that… I was eating Halo Top birthday cake ice cream, but then I finished the whole pint in less than 24 hours :) Only 280 calories though #noshame
COOKING (soon) everything from this Real Simple magazine! Simple recipes, limited ingredients, and pictures that have my mouth watering already.
PLANNING about where I want to go on my next vacation with the boyfriend. Yes, here I am crying about always being go-go-go and I’m planning the next adventure already :) I’m thinking I want it to involve my passport getting stamped. Any recommendations?
What have you been up to lately?
Also, don’t forget to send San Fran tourist activities (or tasty restaurant locations) my way!
