these are a few of my favorite things








did you have a good weekend? 

we felt really productive and proud of ourselves for plowing through our "to-do" list bright and early. we had so much time to just relax around the house, cuddle with piri, catch up on some tv {although we were probably the only ones not watching breaking bad on sunday} and read. 

and can i also say how incredibly awesome i've been feeling for cutting our grocery budget in half by starting our meal planning again? i can't believe how much food we wasted before. i'm also getting a bit more bolder with trying new recipes. i've been sticking to making a lot of korean food {thank goodness for maangchi} and have surprised myself a few times when a certain dish actually tasted like it's suppose to {i'm seriously really bad at cooking so these moments are a real high for me}. 

here's to life's little big moments! have a wonderful week ahead.
we're heading into october! wow.

  1. your weekend sounds a lot like mine - productive but relaxing. I love your photo displays.

    your meal budgeting sounds intriguing! I've been planning meals for a couple months but nothing too extravagant since I'm awful at cooking. (really awful). I should try some new recipes!

  4. Well done on the meal budget. We've been doing more home cooking recently. It's very convenient after getting fed up with the same fast food taste day in day out the food court close to work and much healthier alternative too.

    i'm trying to swing myself by the kitchen more and more, especially when my mom cooks so i can pick up some points. i really love collecting recipes and imagining how fun it would be to make them, so i hear ya. a celebration is truly called for when something tastes great! here's to our chef hats haha! :)
