Besides a Davis trip with some girl friends, Atlassian Friends and Family Day with Evonne and Mika, and an LA trip with my siblings, May was a pretty busy month! (But I say that every month right?)
Shannon came to the bay for a quick visit, so we got to catch up over some Thai food in downtown Palo Alto! It was nice hearing about her new job and all of her adventures with Glenn.
When it comes to drinking, some people like to day drink, while others like to only night drink. I actually enjoy both, but my day drinking experience with Evonne at last year’s Atlassian Friends and Family Day was a very memorable one! Since they had an open bar and open food trucks set up, Evonne and I were double fisting for a couple of hours… which led to my first day time hang over. Although it was a little traumatizing, I was excited that Evonne invited me again to this year’s event!
When Phil and I got to Spark Social SF, we realized it was a lot hotter than we planned. I really wish I wore shorts, but I feel like it’s always a gamble to wear shorts in the city because it gets very, very cold at night. We met up with Evonne and Mika and went straight for the sangria and food trucks!
At the beginning of the month, Steph and her friends planned a Davis trip and asked if I wanted to go. Did I want to? Of course! I’ve been wanting to go back to Davis for the longest time because I missed my all time favorite burger joint, Burgers and Brew. Coincidentally, the weekend we picked to visit was Cinco De Mayo, so we really wanted to re-live our college days and try this Davis Trinity that became pretty popular after we graduated. Were our livers ready…?

Although springtime means itchy eyes and lots of sneezes, I love when the weather gets warmer! Instead of burying myself under blankets in bed, I’m more inclined to want to go out and do… anything!
At the beginning of the month, Phil took me to one of his friend’s BBQ. They live in such a nice apartment complex in San Jose! Funny note: the grass here is like fake golf grass. It felt kind of weird to sit on at first, but then I realized it’s probably way easier for the apartment complex to maintain it.
Whether we’re watching The Bachelor(ette), eating dinner, or just watching TV, Phil and I like to enjoy a glass (or a bottle) of wine. We’ve talked about going wine tasting a couple of times, so when he finally got a Saturday off from coaching, we decided to check out the wineries in Livermore. I’ve lived in Fremont all my life, and it wasn’t until last year I found out there were wineries in our backyard!
Since the weather was so nice that weekend, we decided we’d hit up all the wineries bright and early to avoid the crowds. We stopped by our local bagel shop, Daily Bagel Cafe, for some delicious breakfast.
