Recently went to check out the SF Botanical Gardens for the first time ever. ^^ I was pleasantly surprised to see that entrance is free for SF residences so it was cool. It was a pretty nice day so it was perfect for garden viewing.
Met up with a friend downtown after work on Friday to check out Memebox’s pop up store. Sadly it was a soft opening and had barely any products. We were in and out in about five minutes. Was a bit disappointed. Hoping they’ll be stocking up on much more products when the Black Friday sales hit.
Walked by another new pop up store called BoxLunch and had to check it out. It had a lot of novelty items in it that I found was perfect for white elephant gifts. Depending on if our families will be gathering for Christmas, I will probably come back for a gift.
Wasn’t planning on getting anything. (I’m on a self imposed shopping ban – bad time really but I’ve been spending waaaay too much and I would like to get my credit cards back under control.) But then my friend showed me this adorable angry kitty and I knew I just had to have it! Hello new food buddy~hehe
The cool thing with BoxLunch is that they donate a meal with every purchase you make so it helped a bit with the guilt to know that my purchase was helping a good cause? Heh ^^;;
After our brief shopping, we went to Tacorea. I’ve been meaning to check this place out since I heard of its opening! Korean-Mexican fusion! The place was pretty small and packed but luckily we managed to get a seat. Prices weren’t bad. We ended up getting this tater tots nachos and four tacos. The food was really good but sadly, because I ate a little bit before our meet up, I wasn’t that hungry so I couldn’t eat much.
The canadians wanted to try a cruffin so that’s what we did the day after christmas. Went to mr. holmes bakehouse. Planned to get there by 7:30am to line up since the shop opened at 8am. We got there a little before 8am and found out that yes, the shop opens at 8am but they don’t start selling cruffins until 9am. We ended up being like the 6th person in line.
Okay, so one of my goals for the new year is to build better habits. (I’m just drowning in my sea of bad habits right now) One habit I would really like to improve/work on is my issue with commitment. I always try to find a way to steer clear of anything that will tie me down. The feeling that I have to do something is such a heavy weight. I’m a fuck-it type of person though I have to say, this type of lifestyle doesn’t work too well lol.
Anyways, the point is, I’m going to try to have a post up everyday in the month of January. I have a few more posts I’ve planned out from my outings over the holidays but once I’ve exhausted those, I’m gonna be in trouble.
