November is off to a great start! I had a tea party with friends, the work week, some rain, Boudin, hanging out with my cousin Tink, early Christmas shopping, self-care day, Fall Bash, and a high school reunion at Takara Sake! 🙂
To the pictures!

Tea time at Lovejoy’s Tea Room! I love everything about the decor and the food. Chloe and I ordered the Queen’s Tea and Cheyenne ordered High Tea. I went with the traditional English Breakfast. My favorite tea! I’m also a fan of Jasmine.
There was plenty of food to share and many stories to be told. It was an overdue hang out, but it worked out for everyone!
The menu. It’s a great selection!
Me, Chloe, and Cheyenne. 🙂
Fruit, scones, salad, tea sandwiches, and so much more!
Everything was delicious.
Scones are my favorite. Perfection.
Some shots with the Lovejoy’s hearts. ❤
We decided to take a walk after all of that food. Time to window shop! And if you find something nice, buy it. LOL.
Tokidoki Giants stuff. It’s all so kawaii!!
I bought a Yomiuri Giants cap. I couldn’t resist. Black and orange everything. 😀
Strolled into the local bookstore. YAY BASEBALL!
We decided to get dinner afterwards. Hungry again. Hehe.
We settled on Italian!!
Everything was amazing! Happy stomachs.
After dinner, they walked me home & everyone ordered their Lyft or Uber rides.
Successful Sunday!! Until our next hang out.

MONDAYYY! Some errands before work. Such a pretty sky. I was off to a slow start, but everything worked out. YAY!
Hello, GGB! You look great.
Decided on salad for lunch.
I love the Mixt Cobb at Mixt. It’s the only one I order. LOL.
I went to work, walked around downtown, and then went home.
A nice reminder.
Falling back an hour does a lot. I miss you, Spring!!
Christmas decor is already out. I’m excited! I love Christmas and the holiday season.
Pork tonkatsu for dinner. 😛

Turkey cranberry sandwich at Boudin. The bread is always perfect!
Late start at work, so I was able to take my time.
Holiday rink is out! Should be open soon.
Had to catch the bus after lunch. Once I got to work, I was catching up on news. My heart sank when there was a report about Roy Halladay’s passing. He was a phenomenal pitcher who was well respected in the league. I was so fortunate to watch him during his prime. RIP DOC.
After work, I decided to buy peppermint bark at Williams-Sonoma. My co-worker, Taylor, told me all about it! And I love peppermint bark. (It’s approved by me! My sisters love it too.)
Thee best section! So festive.
The pretty lights at Maiden Lane.

Gloomy day in the city. It was cold.

Work commute with Mom. Always fun! This will happen 1-2 times a week.
Blue skies! Always a plus.
Before the sunset. Always in awe. Always.
Hung out with my cousins and Tink! Got a lot of help with my project.

Self-care day! That means pampering. Brows! 😀
On our way to my appointment.
It rained in the morning. Blue skies in the city! It did drizzle a bit heading home.
Love the message. #resilience
I wanted a pastry! We both did. In line at Tartine. Always worth it.
Had to take care of errands before the Fall Bash at work!
A chilly SF evening. I was prepared.
The faculty band. Uncle Riffkin. They were awesome!
Eat, drink, and be merry! It was a wonderful evening.
The team! We’re missing a few people. So, so fun.
Nob Hill chilling. The lights!!
I got to see Tink before the night ended. Always a good time with her!
I went home at this point. GOOD TIMES.

Veterans Day weekend! Thank you to everyone for serving this country. THANK YOU!!!
Reunion day with our high school friends. We haven’t seen each other in years.
Sake tasting in Berkeley! Our first time there.
Traffic to the East Bay.
But first, food! Cheesesteaks at the Cheesesteak Shop. AMAZING!!!
I approve. We have one in the city! I’ll be back.
We were a bit late getting to the tasting room, but it worked out.
We’re here! Super exciting. I love sake.
Love the interior.
Sake!! The historian was very knowledgeable.
I’ve known this for a while now, but I like sweet drinks. Haha.
I bought two bottles for the holidays! SO GOOD.
Caught the sunset.
We decided to get dinner. Japanese food in the Richmond.
Chose the katsu don. It was pretty good.
Lots of catching up! It’s fun seeing what everyone else is up to these days.
So many memories. It’s nice to look back on and laugh.
Boba for dessert! It’s been a while.
Afterwards, we went to Collette’s place for some karaoke. More sake and snacks.
We covered a lot of nineties hits! It was a time capsule.
Boyz II Men. So good.
It was great catching up with everyone! We gotta do it more often.
The friends are back in the bay! 🙂
