Merry Monday

Today is much different than last Monday! I love how things can turn around and be totally different from one day to another. (As long as it’s for the better). Since today is actually a merry Monday, it’s easy for me to take a minute to appreciate a few things.

Here they are:
1. Pho. My mom made homemade Pho, which is Vietnamese noodle soup for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying it. It’s particularly good to have when the weather is cold. It’s a little harder to eat when you’re in Vietnam in 90 degree weather with intense humidity, but still good. 
2. TV Shows. TV is back! Thank goodness for sitcoms and dramas and fewer reality TV shows. I love when all of my favorite shows come back for the fall. Situations have changed, characters and their hairstyles have morphed (eew Parenthood what were you thinking?), and it’s the beginning of a 20-something run of new episodes. I don’t mind being rather consumed by tv. (Oh and the Emmys were on last night to celebrate TV too).
3. The Fall. I can’t get over how much I love this season and everything about it. Yesterday I went with my mom and nephew to the Moon Festival at the Landmark Center which celebrates the autumn and Asian culture. It was rainy and cloudy out and to me, perfect!

What are you enjoying this Monday morning?


  1. I am so excited to watch The New Girl tomorrow. I am a wee bit stalkerish about Zooey Deschanel and her hair.

  2. Sigh, my list matches yours pretty closely. Just substitute beer cheese soup in a bread bowl (with little popcorn bits) for the Pho. There are way too many shows I'd like to watch this year. And fall feels invigorating after the humidity and 100+ degree weather of summer. It still makes me want to go buy school supplies though...
    Also, Zooey Deschanel might be my biggest girl crush of all time.


Whatcha thinkin'?
