After a few packed weekends, this one unintentionally ended up being very lazy in most every way.  Not that I’m complaining or anything!  Vishnu and I know that in a few short months our weekends will look different…very different.


Friday night included a simple dinner + a few episodes of Iron Fist, a Netflix show based on the Marvel comic.  Vishnu was shocked when I sat down with him to watch and actually stayed seated.  Ha!


Saturday morning started a little bit later than I expected (perhaps due to one too many Iron Fist episodes!).  Vishnu and I spent the better part of an hour laying in bed feeling the baby move!  So much fun and a little strange to be honest.

After going back and forth on what to eat, I decided to make my Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins.  The perfect Saturday morning breakfast.

After a few more episodes of Iron Fist (Netflix and it’s continuous play, I tell you!), we finally peeled ourselves off the couch and made our way to Target and the grocery store.

While shopping, I asked Vishnu if he wanted to indulge a little, and when he said yes, I took him straight to the ice cream aisle.

Once we got home, we settled in, made dinner, indulged in some delicious ice cream, and watched a few more episodes of…you guessed it…Iron Fist. 🙂


After sitting around most of the weekend, Vishnu and I wanted to kick Sunday off with a trip to the gym.  The EFX machine, free weights, and I had a fun little date!

Of course, sweaty workouts call for protein shakes.  

Sunday also calls for deep cleaning.  Vishnu and I divided and subsequently conquered everything in just under an hour.   Love me some good team work!

I ran a few errands in the afternoon, Vishnu and I watched the last few episodes of Iron Fist, and then we eventually made our way to a dinner date with my sister and Adarsh (more on this meal coming to The Blissful Veggie very soon!).

And that was our semi-lazy weekend in a nutshell!  On to a packed work week…

Your turn – what did you do this weekend?  What was the last show you binge watched and actually enjoyed?

  1. I’ve heard some people absolutely hate that show! REB is watching through it first (binge watching really). I need to watch as well, but, I’m trying to finish Westworld first 🙂
    I binge watched Daredevil (both seasons) and The Wire. So so good!! My weekend was chill! Saw Beauty and the Beast, worked out, had another instagram-foodie meetup and played The Sims 😉 haha

  2. As much as I love jam-packed weekends, I equally relish the more relaxing ones….yours sounds ideal :)! Mumbai needs to get on board with Talenti- that ice cream flavour sounds SO up my alley!! Last TV show I binge watched was This is Us on my flight back from China- best way to kill time on a flight ha!
