happy saturday!


This week felt super long, not in a good way. Actually, maybe just the days felt long. Now that it's Saturday evening, I'm like, "Where did the week go?!" Isn't that the way?

Lots of things had me feeling blah this week. And nothing had me feeling blah too. Does that make sense? But lots made me happy too!

+ Spontaneous frozen yogurt date with T.

+ Downloading these two songs.

+ Lots of cute moments with my kiddos.

+ We began practicing our graduation song and the kids love it! (They made up their own actions. Adorable.)

+ Discovering the joy of happy hour. Happy hour right now means opening a Corona as soon as I get home.

+ Happy hour yesterday meant having a "shower beer" before Quiz Night!

+ Quiz Night! So much fun. Our team didn't win, but Melissa and I made a bet that the loser between our two teams would buy the winner brunch today. (Our team beat hers by a few points. Insert fist pump emoji here.) (Is there such a thing as a fist pump emoji?)

+ Brunch and nails date with Melissa today.

+ The Indian food that just arrived and the Gilmore Girls episode that T is loading on Netflix right now ;)

+ The plans we have with Paula to play cards and eat popcorn later tonight.

What made you happy this week?

recently downloaded.

The other night T and I went out for dinner and before we came home I decided I wanted a bubble tea (duh). This is only relevant because it gave me an opportunity to take a detour through GAP, which I do often, "Just to look!" Steps into the store, I exclaimed, "Good music!" and started dancing around.*

I didn't have my phone with me so I turned to Tony and accusingly said, "This is why you should have Shazam! I want to download this song but I don't know what it is."

Patiently and wisely, T said, "Just listen to the lyrics. Remember some and search it when you get home."

So I stopped dancing and made an extra effort to listen. I think I even tilted my head. On the way home, I sang to myself, "Give me one good reason why I should never make a change."

And behold! Budapest!



Downloading this song made me think of another song I wanted to download. Completely different vibe but still so good.



What songs have you been listening to lately?

*If you know me, you know that I really do exclaim things. I speak in exclamation points!

highlights from my bachelorette weekend in hong kong!










































Airport beers. #forthemeat "Just go to sleep." The longest immigration line ever. Being almost surprised by Julie. The longest taxi line ever. Driving on the other side of the road. Taxi was like grandparents' old car. "Look at that big... rearview mirror." Getting to the hotel at 4AM. Being upgraded to a suite. Waking up at 8:30AM. The subways are so clean! Everyone is so nice! Spending a long time at Lush. Taking the bus up the (scary because it's so steep) hill to the peak. Shopping for engagement rings. McDonalds in Hong Kong have seasoning for their french fries; why don't we have that?! Surprise cupcakes. Penis straws and champagne. Bathrobes and slippers. Fresh face masks. "Never have I ever..." Hawaiian pizza with stuffed crust. Being sick most of the night :( The biggest crabs and lobster ever. Lunch at The News Room. Stanley Market. Snacks and staying in. Brunch at Brick Lane. Hong Kong Park. Forever 21. (I bought a fanny pack!) Chicken & Bacon Ranch sub from Subway. (Why doesn't Subway on the mainland have those?!) Landing back in Beijing after midnight. Traffic on the highway because of construction. Work the next day.

Did I miss anything, ladies?

happy friday!


This week went by so quickly. I don't even think I could tell you what I did each day because I don't remember. I was just too tired. My throat has that scratchy feeling that usually means I'm getting sick. Please don't let me be getting sick. Fingers crossed.

Family made me happy. New jeans made me happy. Going out for dinner with T made me happy. Being done a (second) juice cleanse as of tonight makes me happy. Having a couple of important conversations with T made me happy. Talking to my dad for the first time in a long time made me happy. Having a "Marvel movie marathon" with T made me happy. (I had only ever seen the Captain America movies. So far, I like those and the Iron Man movies best. Hulk, Thor, and the Avengers, so-so. Although, Thor is nice to look at ;)

Our plans for this weekend? Continuing our Marvel movie marathon (we're on Iron Man 3), hopefully seeing Avengers 2, grocery shopping, and Thai food. Throw in a bath and a book, I'd say it's a solid weekend.

What made you happy this week? What are your plans for the weekend?
