This weekend was busy as we caught up on some shopping, decorated and well, I spent Sunday afternoon with a well deserved 2 hr nap. I’ve been feeling zonked lately. Perhaps with all the BTS excitement that’s been non-stop for the past two weeks! And it’s not over what with the recent record-breaking 28th spot on Billboards 100 for any kpop group, BTS included (beating their previous top 100 for DNA). Plus there is the new Japanese single they are releasing in a couple of days.
Anyway – it was a great weekend though. We ate Sunday brunch at the Black Dog Pub which is our favorite pub usually for dinner. And while it does serve traditional pub fare, it is a more upscale version from most pubs. Their wine list is amazing! Rather than having to settle for one or two choices of red wine in most pubs/bars, they actually have a good vintage selection. Anyone who knows me knows I don’t go for the cheap stuff if I can help it. Yup – I’m a bit of a wine snob. I never meant to be one – it just sort of happened. As I got older, my palate started to change.
To start the weekend, I went to get my nails re-done. And I managed to also go early both Saturday and Sunday to the gym for 1.5 hrs cardio sessions each day. Saturday, I also did a 50 minutes push-up and delts + tricep weight session. On Sunday, I rounded the weekend off with 40 minutes of yoga. My poor body was too sore to do much else by then!
And of course, between all that, we ended Saturday night decorating the house – all but the tree since we always get a live tree which needs to be bought a week or so before Christmas day (to stay fresh for the holidays).
Christmas time always comes by so quickly. I hope this year it takes its time a bit as I won’t complain if it even drags itself out. I have a lot of wrapping to do this year and I admit I went ahead and spoiled my daughter with a crap-load of kpop merchandise. I hope I did not over do it but as her obsession over BTS has not slowed down I’m sure she won’t be disappointed. Hell, even I bought the BTS Live Trilogy EPISODE III THE WINGS TOUR DVD for myself! I’m wrapping it up and putting it under the Christmas tree with the message, “Dear Mommy – Hope you like this! Love, Hobbes!” Don’t worry, I’ll share it with my daughter. She can also have any posters/photo cards it comes with. What am I going to do with BTS posters, anyway?
