Holiday festivities are in full swing in the city! After Thanksgiving, a lot of people are immediately in Christmas mode. I mean not everyone, but I certainly am. I love holiday movies (Hallmark & Lifetime! :P), buying a new roll of wrapping paper, and blasting Christmas music.

The countdown to holiday break was four weeks. It felt like a long time especially when you obsessively count, but time went by quickly. Woo!

This was a fun week! To the pictures.

Monday! I was tired. Like all over. But I powered through it.

Brunch. I needed a quick bite before work.

Clif bars are always a good choice.

I met up with Susan and M after work. Good times!

So festive! 🙂

After the lighting, we stopped by the hotels in Nob Hill. The Fairmont and The Mark Hopkins. The Fairmont already had their gingerbread house up! I love going in there.

Another angle of the house. So awesome!!

Unfortunately, we couldn’t consume the gingerbread. Smelling it is the next best thing.

Reminds me of a classic Christmas movie! I was happy to experience it all over again.

Browsed the decor in the garden area. Very nice! We also read a lot of the hotel’s history.

More beautiful trees! ❤

The tree at the Mark Hopkins. Very pretty!

I went home after this. I had Indian food waiting for me.

We bought this at Whole Foods. It’s very good! 10/10 would recommend. 🙂

Stayed up watching Snowglobe with the fam. A classic! 😀

It rained a lot. I was pretty miserable, especially during my commute.

The lights along the Embarcadero.

We decided to make pasta carbonara for dinner. It was delicious!

Found the recipe online.

I love my allbirds! I was waiting for my train. It took a while.

Blue skies. Thankful!

The Mark Hopkins from a distance. It was a good weather day!

Early morning for Beari. Vet appointment!

Bagels for breakfast! Fave.

On the way to work. Bundled up because I’m always cold.

The tree at Union Square. Always a sight to see.

The upside down tree at Westfield! So cool.

Once I got home, I spent the evening with Beari. She had a long day.

AYCE KBBQ! We finally arranged a good time for dinner with everyone. Yay!

So ready to eat! I want this again. Hehe.

Peach soju! It was really good.

Another round of meat. The brisket is my top choice.

We went 7-8 rounds. So full by the end of it. Everything was great!!

The group and our aftermath. Success! 😀

Boba nightcap. I haven’t been to Purple Kow in a while.

Successful foodie day!!

Slept in. I love taking it easy on Sundays.

It was also our grandfather’s death anniversary. ❤ I thought of him throughout the day.

This memory from Father’s Day 2012. Love you always, Lolo. ❤

It was a pleasant week! Thankful for everything, the good and the bad.

Thanks for stopping by!
