Happy Birthday to you, Lola! ❤️

She’s 92 today! Time flies. I just want to say thank you for raising us – cooking, cleaning, and keeping us in check. I remember we used to get nagged if we didn’t change out of our school clothes or clean up after dinner. She taught me how to cook rice too!!

We brought brunch over to her this morning. Filipino food! And then more Filipino food for dinner. 🥰 She liked her presents too, a scarf and a beanie. Temperatures are starting to drop and I really want spring to be here already!!!

I’m emo, but I love our Lola. I was the one attached to her whenever she flew back to the Philippines. Full on tears! 🥺😭 Very grateful for our grandparents.

Going to end it here. I have an interview to prep for before bed. I hope everyone is staying safe! Good night. 💜

Friendsgiving.

I caught up with my college friend, Dania! We bought lunch at San Tung and hung out at Golden Gate Park. The weather was lovely! We’re planning our list of things to do and visit for the holiday season. 🎄❤️ Can’t wait!

I’m a bunch of nerves. There’s a lot going on, but I’m trying to breathe through it all. 😮‍💨 My mindset – I can!!! 💜

Self care day for me. I bought a new book to add to my Giants collection. Can’t wait to read about Willie Mays!! 🖤🧡🖤🧡

I took a much needed nap when I returned. It was a good day.

Hope y’all had a lovely Monday! I’m watching Beauty and the Beast atm to celebrate its release. It’s been 30 years! 🌹 Take care.

Good night.

Breakfast at Kitchen Story.

It was our first time there! We decided to get in early to avoid the crowds. Good call by all of us. We haven’t seen each other since February 2020! We were at K Elements for our early birthday dinner. Time flies! Grateful that we made time for each other. 🥰🍳🥓

Everything was delicious! The Millionaire Benedict 😋 A nice combo of sweet and savory. My goodness!!!

Then I took a nap once we got back. I’m still pretty tired now. I fell asleep pretty early too. The lupus life. I’ll be okay! Going to nap a bit more.

Wishing you all a great week!!! 🙂💜
