Sweet Treats from my sweetie!

My SO recently got his wisdom teeth pulled out so he's been eating solely soft foods and primarily eating with only a spoon. After class, I headed over to spend time with him and brought him Jamba Juice to ease the pain. That's when I heard that distinct ice cream truck bell that frequents his neighborhood at night. Unfortunately, it started moving to the opposite direction of his house. Little did I know, the truck had made a full circle and was outside! We both got soft served Vanilla on cones and of course I got mine Chocolate dipped. Absolutely wonderful and I got to eat both cones!

Rainy Weather & Work Surprises

This week has been oddly rainy and there has been 2 instances of hail already. On the bright side, I received a gift card from work for submitting "The Best Comment" on improving my work establishment. I also broke my fast food fast with Taco Bell and tried their Doritos Locos Tacos. Taco Bell with the first season of Community was the perfect way to end my Saturday, post work.

Tea For Two!

Alas, quality time with my best friend! Kimmi was back and town and we decided to go to Lisa's Tea Treasures for tea and a bit to snack on before strolling around Santana Row. The Boysenberry tea we got was deliciously sweet and was perfect to dip our Gingersnaps in. The tea sandwiches, quiche and lemon tart were my favorite! 

We left satisfied and strangely full, I opted for more caffeine at Starbucks and we continued shopping around afterwards. 

I'm going to miss this girl when she goes back to Long Beach! :*(
