Bao, Bubble Tea, And A Birthday


Three day weekend eats.  My third day was Friday, not Memorial Day (hello, healthcare family, Adam and I both worked the holiday).

We managed to fit a lot of fun into the days.  Including not one but two types of bubble tea!  Plus a trip to Pennsylvania for my middle niece’s birthday party – Adam’s entire family was there and it was great to see everyone together.  And a loooong walk in the almost-summer sun that left me burnt to a crisp.


Here were the highlights…

We split an iced latte and a lavender coconut shortbread from Tygershark.


We adored the cute succulents, natural light, and overall vibe in there, we will definitely be heading in for a meal soon.

I packed us great bagels for our mini road trip.  Topped with fancy lox and Neufchatel cheese.



Plus toasted marshmallow coffee once we got to PA.

Green juice on a shopping trip at Whole Foods.


Kale, spinach, cucumber, and orange.  I went back and asked for ice, green juice is a billion times tastier when it’s cold.



The “Uncle Jesse Bao” is fried tofu served with Haus Seasoning Salt, crushed peanuts, Taiwanese red sugar, cilantro, and Haus Sauce.  P.S. I am ashamed about how much I am anticipating “Fuller House” season 2.

Boba is the our favorite.  Black rose tea with tapioca and housemade almond jelly at Boba Guys.


Plus I have been Instagram-jealous of this treat from Vivi for months.


Black milk tea with boba on the bottom and a cloud of cotton candy – sprinkled with pop rocks!! – top.  So much fun!

Best for last – a picnic with my boys!




We shared grilled cheese sandwiches and a long nap on a blanket in the grass.

We’ve made it to Wednesday, enjoy the rest of your week!
