Oakland Temple

So Nick and I had a little adventure in Oakland over the weekend with some of our dearest friends.

Here are two things you MUST do while in Oakland:

  1. Visit the Oakland LDS Temple.
    1. Seriously though- this place is a castle on the hill. The grounds are gorgeous, no matter what time of year, and the view is stunning. Wander into the Visitor’s Center for more views and information about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
  2. Eat at Homeroom.
    1. Whenever I think about this place, my mouth starts to water. Macaroni and cheese is one of my favorite foods, and this place is all different kinds of mac & cheese! A dream come through for “children” of all ages. You can check it out here!

XOXO,

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse

Okay, so on the plane ride over to San Francisco, I was watching Guilty Pleasures on the Food Network, and one of the places they showed was this place – Mr. Holmes Bakehouse. So as Nick and I were driving to the Golden Gate Bridge, I was like, “WAIT! We need to go here.” So, we made a little detour, and we’re so glad that we did. We got a big, fat chocolate chip cookie, blackberry toast with cream cheese filling, a cream filled donut, and a sweet croissant. Plus, they have the cutest branding. It is a must do if you’re ever in San Francisco.

XOXO,
