Wee bit of me Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Or happy hump-day if you prefer!

I'm in the library and bored, actually I should be studying but we all know how that goes :)

I love Wednesdays. Probably because I was born on one! But even if you don't love Wednesdays, you can still join in on "Wee bit of me Wednesdays" too!

{one} do you collect anything? if so, what and how long have you been collecting?
I do! I collect souvenir shot-glasses and post-cards. Every time people see my shot-glass collection it like *wink wink* "what a large collection." Implying I'm some sort of crazy alcoholic who actually uses all the glasses. No, I would be dead if I tried that, there's a lot!

{two} what is one cleaning tip that you swear by?

I wish I were more domestic and could offer an amazing tip, but sadly, I am not. Though the Mr. Clean magic erasers are pretty awesome (bye bye sharpies) 

{three} who would you call for bail money?  

Ermm, my dad or brother. They both have money and I'd probably face a wrath from either one!

{four} what is one thing you miss about being a kid?  

Play time... Hands down. You know rushing to finish your homework so you can roller blade or play freeze tag with the neighbors.  
{five} name a few of your guilty pleasures. 

Eating while driving (I'm a good driver, I promise!!), salty carbs, snuggling with my doggie
{six} how early do you start your holiday shopping?  

Probably 10 days before. Unless I'm being brilliant and have planned ahead, then December 1st.
{seven} what is a family tradition that you would like to pass on to your significant other/children?

Humongous New Years feast, asian style. My grandma and I spend New Year's eve-day cooking so much food. Sushi, soup, flank steak, shrimp, you name it. Then on New Years the family comes over to watch the parade, do puzzles, and graze all day.
{eight} what do you consider your greatest achievement? 

So far, graduating college. I hope there's more "big" achievements in my life though!
{nine} what do you do to pamper yourself? 

At home spa day! Nails, facials.. 
if you were to start your own restaurant, what would it be called?
When I was a kid, my sister and I always pretended we had a restaurant. I can't remember what it was called, but we did serve an "okapoca sandwich." Jelly and turkey on sourdough. That may or may not be on the permanent menu ;)

Summer dreaming..

The hot weather this week (80-90 degrees!!) made me a little nostalgic for summer.

Here is an old bike adventure that I never ever got around to posting.

My purple bike and I had so much fun this summer. Riding along the beach with friends really makes exercise, well, not seem like exercise.

The hardest part was all the little hills we encountered getting to the strand (beach). Murder on my thighs and calves!!

The riding on the strand was physically easy.  But it felt like I was driving! Although it was strictly a "bike path" and explicitly said "no pedestrians," everyone was strolling down the path. Gotta keep alert or else a collision is bound to happen!

This summer all the lifeguard stations were colorfully painted.  It really made them stand out on the beach! I liked it!! My family and I love visiting “statues on parade” things (like summer of snoopy or salmon parade.)

We ended up doing about 40 miles! It took us a long time and there were a ton of cyclists that passed us up. But, slow and steady was a-ok for me :)
Sigh, I do miss summer. It seems like the upcoming daylight savings (Sunday!), makes the end of summer seem so final. Oh, and the holiday Starbucks cups.. definitely means winter is here :)

I do hope that So Cal weather will finally make up its mind..scarves or shorts??

Which weather fashion do you prefer? Scarves, coats, and pants OR shorts, dresses, and tank tops?
I can't decide!! I love love love scarves, so I'm leaning towards winter/autumn. But, who am I to really "know" what winter really is. I'm a California girl through and through. I think 60 degrees is cold!
