Another 3-day Weekend for the U.S.

Hello!  Just dropping in to say hey it’s been awhile!

I am so excited for another 3-day weekend!  Work hasn’t been too crazy so I haven’t had to crave time off like I did last year.  However, I am excited to take advantage of the long weekend and use it to build more content for this blog.  We are planning to see a comedy show on Friday, which is exciting because our last date night was a month ago when we saw a Kpop show in San Francisco.  This time the comedy show is in Livermore, which will make the drive a nightmare because of traffic, but also an adventure since we don’t go there that often.  Other than that, we plan to drive around aimlessly and go where our hearts desire.  Please stay tuned for future pictures and content around the Bay Area!

As for a life update, lately, it’s been raining over here and from weather forecasts it doesn’t look to be letting up.  It’s definitely stopped me from taking walks outside and halted my husband from de-cluttering his mom’s garage. YES, it’s still a mess.  But a little less so than before.  Unfortunately, she’ll be coming back this Tuesday from the Philippines so the idea of thoroughly cleaning her garage will stall unless both are ready to come to an agreement as to what can stay or be trashed.

Anyway, please stay tuned for future content!

January 2019 Favorites

This isn’t travel related, again, but I love watching monthly favorites from Youtubers.  So I thought I’d do the same thing in this blog post.

January was actually a good month for us despite the government shutdown.  Thankfully, we were not affected.  My mother-in-law flew to the Philippines for vacation and initially we were concerned TSA would be a problem, but surprisingly, my MIL went threw security fairly quickly and had no problems at all.

But anyway, some of my favorites in January would be:

  • The fact that I was only sick for the first week of January and not the whole month like last year calls for attention.  Last year, I couldn’t even leave our apartment to go on walks because I was coughing for two months.
  • Seeing the kpop group Winner in San Francisco.  I’m hooked on Kpop and can’t wait to see more shows this year.  We wanted to see Red Velvet in February but the tickets in L.A. sold out quickly.  They did add another show, but prices are selling for $172 a person.  We’re hoping to see Blackpink though so fingers crossed they perform in Cali.
  • Paris Baguette’s blueberry scone.  For those who live near a Paris Baguette, I highly recommend you try their blueberry scone.  It’s so good you won’t regret it!  It’s definitely a modern take on scones.
  • Harrod’s Online.  I wasn’t planning to buy a designer bag anytime soon, but when I saw how much Harrod’s was selling a few designer bags for a couple of hundred dollars less than the same bag sold here in the U.S., I jumped at the opportunity.  It was my first purchase ever outside the country and I was on pins and needles waiting for my bag to arrive.  I didn’t know anything about paying customs duty, but thankfully Harrod’s takes care of all that.  At least for U.S. customers.  All in all, my bag took a week until it arrived at my doorstep, and because of such an easy transaction, I plan to buy more from Harrod’s in the future.
