munching through the midweek

Its no secret that Kei and I love being a couch potato, and there is no better time to be one than now. Because holidays are the perfect excuse to sleep through the alarm and go about marathon watching my favorite series on Netflix, and just this week we got I-flix too.

We really enjoy watching Netflix’s Dynasty

But if you were to make me choose, I still prefer Netflix. Because I am pretty much hooked into Netflix’x Dynasty that is based from a 1980’s series of the same name. *I have never seen the 1980’s one.  We also still enjoy watching Riverdale and Designated Survivor.

Another thing we also do when watching our favorite series is we go all out! I cook tacos, pasta or any food that we both love for dinner. We also stock up on our favorite eats and even go as far as running off to the nearest coffee shop to buy a drink. *Peppermint everything! -More so that the holidays are just around the corner. I am fond of peppermint.  It is like having a cozy midweek date night at home.

Our favorites this holiday season.  From left: Yellow Tail Pink Moscato, Starbucks Christmas Tree Peppermint Mocha -or if we cannot go out we have Owl instant white coffee with peppermint, Lamb Weston Potato wedges that I pop in the airfryer for a “guilt free” version, and Tostitos that we dip into the creamy spinach dip! 

We look forward to it every Thursday (the day all the series I mentioned here have new episodes).  Kind of like a pick-me-up in the middle of the week and motivation to get it through (deadline) Friday, till the happy days of the weekend.

on to the holidays

I know I have been out for a while. There were quite a lot of holidays, then catching up on workloads, home decorating for the Christmas, getting my name changed, gaining a god daughter and doing early Christmas shopping to avoid the holiday rush. It’s been chaotic but very much productive.

We have also just finished hosting Friendsgiving & Games 2017. So, this is now a tradition in our home. 

the potluck menu – everyone pitched in!

After lunch, the games are played. We have Taboo, King of Tokyo and Sushi go! It was hours of fun.

After that we shared something we are thankful about, and some more stories -the recent happening in our lives.
Like the last Friendsgiving, we only have a few photos. Well technically we only have one group photo and a solo shot of our good friend Matti.  (sorry, no posting as the photo is a group photo, and the solo photo is a solo photo- we do not have the rights ok?!)
Its officially December! Woot woot! Its on to the holidays for everyone!

And also Grateful

If you are feeling some December blues, or even depression, don’t fight it.
Instead, do something for yourself. Be reflective. Let the emotions exist.
And be encouraged that, like me, you can get to a better place, but it can take time. – Brad Feld
