The Press.

My sister and Jeff scheduled a couple of wedding venue tours since they were in town. We had a couple of appointments booked on Friday, and we had some time between our 1st stop and 2nd, so we stopped by The Press in Pleasanton to grab some brunch. The parking lot was a bit full, … Continue reading The Press.


Vegan Agave Lavender.

After running errands the other day, I was craving something sweet. At first, I wanted to get some Philz Coffee (Iced Ecstatic with medium sugar and cream). Then I thought about the Vegan Ice Cream at Nature's Microcreamery and Soul Cafe so we headed to Niles. The weather was a bit chilly, but not cold. A … Continue reading Vegan Agave Lavender.

Pacific PourHouse – Union City.

After watching him eat and talk about crispy pata, I had a major craving! So when T was heading home, he asked what I … Continue reading Toppings, Too.

Little Yosemite.

President's Day was a nice chilly, but sunny day. We decided to go on a hike and tire out little Miss Pepper. We originally had Mission Peak on our agenda, but when we got there (a little before 11am) the parking area and surrounding streets were PACKED, so we decided to go to Sunol Regional Wilderness … Continue reading Little Yosemite.

Nature’s Microcreamery and Soul Cafe.

I came across Nature's while, you guessed it, browsing through Yelp. I needed a way to convince T to come with me because Avocado Toast doesn't really appeal to him. After grabbing sushi with my sister, I was craving something sweet, and what better way to fulfill that craving than with ICE CREAM! We found … Continue reading Nature’s Microcreamery and Soul Cafe.
