My Answers:

Q – Who is your favorite television character and why ?


Meet Me On Monday


Definitely Chelsea Handler, she is so funny and her sense of humor can get pretty far out there. She is not afraid to speak her mind, and she does it very effortlessly, she makes me laugh and laugh and laugh.


Q – Which is your favorite time of the day and why?


Meet Me On Monday


I actually love morning and late night. Because mornings always feels exiting to me, it’s a new beginning and I love the smell outside in the mornings.

I also love late nights, cause my husband gets home really late and that’s when we get to spend our time together.


Q – Lately, what have you been exited about the most?


Meet Me On Monday


This is gonna sound really silly, but there is a new perfume that I’ve been dreaming about for a while and I can’t wait to have it. Β I guess I am the type of person who gets exited even by the smallest things :).


Q – What is your favorite thing to do in the morning?


Meet Me On Monday


If you read my Facebook you might already know this one :). In the morning I love to drink my coffee while dancing to French music, and then read your comments and see what you’re guys are up to.


Q – What is your favorite magazine?


Meet Me On Monday


I have 2 favorites, Phycology Today and Fitness RX. Lately Fitness RX has not been as good as it was a few years ago, but I still like to check out some of their articles.


Let’s Mingle my Darlings!

Big Hugs,

      I am so happy you get to take some nice time off, I bet it’s gonna be so much fun! I haven’t taken a trip in probably 5 years, I’m due.

      • Thank you! yeah. I so need a break. The last trip we made was in February. We only travel within the country though. So it is not too burdening. Perhaps in near future, when our financial condition permits, we will try to travel to farther places. My dream destination is Japan first. Well, just because we actually have a cousin living there. πŸ˜‰

        To where do you want to travel most Tati.. If you are going to travel soon?

  • Naomi

    Who is your favorite television character and why? – I have many, but lately it’s been Tyrion Lannister for his wit and sarcasm. Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks is another favorite – with his cup of black coffee and appreciation for any kind of pie.

    Which is your favorite time of the day and why? – Dusk, I like the darkness, the slightly chilly night air and the smells of the night starting to evolve.

    Lately, what have you been exited about the most? – My man and a marine peacoat.

    What is your favorite thing to do in the morning? – If I have time I eat a long breakfast, read the paper while drinking my coffee and surfing the internet.

    What is your favorite magazine? – Don’t read any! I prefer books.

    • You are such an interesting person Naomi πŸ™‚

      You know I’ve been eye balling Twin Peaks on Netflix and now I am definitely checking it out.

  • Huhu !!

    Not really favorite but I like Alyssa Milano.
    Which is your favorite time of the day and why?
    The morning, I love the silence.
    Lately, what have you been exited about the most?
    I ordered for any days my own yogurt maker, this sounds maybe now crazy i dunno but I’m already so p***** off of this society that everything cost soo much and becomes even more and more expensive!!! I wanna economise as much as I can to save money for the other things, like travel as an example.
    What is your favorite thing to do in the morning?
    To read news durring the time I drink my coffee and eating my breakfast πŸ™‚
    What is your favorite magazine?
    I dont read magazines πŸ˜€ just internet

    Have a nice day !!!! ^-^

    • Kate_CZ

      huhuhuhuhu πŸ™‚

      IΒ΄m on board with you about trying to make as much as possible by myself. HavenΒ΄t tried a yoghurt though. Please, keep us updated how you like it, if it doesnΒ΄t bother you.

      • Ya i will πŸ˜€ this week it should arrive.

    • Alenka

      Good morning (huhu?)LOL. I am 100% with you on the cost of things like that, and of healthy living for that matter. Only makes sense to me to make it cost effective to everyone, if we want to promote healthy lifestyle. And make chips and sodas and junk food cost more to counteract. Well I know I sound like a dreamer there, but – it does make sense :-).

      • I’m complete agree with you. Moreover that they are crying that the civilation becomes more and more fat. Ya, why? (unhealthy = cheaper)
        Yust as an example:
        I went last week with my boyfriend to the market to fill our frigo with food again. He failed by looking of yoghurt because his favourite were not avaible. I check always after the market the addition because yes the fail sometime. And then i saw this price different € 1,34/Kg (his favourite) the failed one € 1,99/Kg so now is this too, that you have to take 2Kg minimum, which makes a price differents from already more as 1 €.
        Yes i know it sounds now ridiculous but count any fails, you could save a lot of money.

        Same with Beauty etc. it’s really nice that she shows how to make your own cream with simple ingredients etc. but yes about to eating healthy and right its even worst 1 kg Orange € 1,10 compared to as example normal flour 1Kg € 0,52. How many pizza’s, bread etc. (unhealthy) you could do with this?

        It’s really said πŸ™ but i guess this, they wouldn’t change.

    • OMG yogurt maker sounds really cool, it’a always better to make your own food at home, it’s healthier and much cheaper, I bake my own bread πŸ™‚

      • To make own bread it’s sure nice too πŸ˜€ fresh and moreover without this industry chemical stuffs.

    • Yogurt can be made using your kitchen oven. That’s how we make ours and it’s one of the best yogurt I’ve tasted.

      • Heyy, thats nice could you explain how? πŸ˜€ I guess even that the oven needs to be on durring any hours like 8-9 hours, no? If yes, it’s not possible at my home. I have not a real oven its a mix of microwave and oven because my kitchen is really small and not much place, this thing make it here very warm.
        Second I life in the sud of france, where we have still 27 degree durring the day (which means when I need the oven to do yoghurt with any hours = my home is a sauna (durring summer its even worst))
        Would be pleased of your answer πŸ˜€

        • Jacqueline, you don’t need to leave the oven on for a long time. Here is what we do for our yogurt.
          Heat to oven to 300c, then turn it off.
          1. Bring cold 4 litres of organic milk(any milk will do) to boiling point (just when bubbles are forming.) Remove from heat.
          2. stir in 650g of organic greek yogurt (if this is your first time making yogurt) the store yogurt is used as the culture. Once you make your own yogurt, just save 650g of your home made one to use next time.
          _ for added thickness stir in half cup of dry milk.
          3. Fill up your prepare containers 3/4 full (we re-use 600ml pasta sauce bottles.) They are already sterilized…of course washed out the sauce LOL:)
          4. Line them on a tray, cover with 3-4 thick towels, place tray in the oven. Set you timer for 3-4 hours. The longer you leave it the oven the stronger (some bitter the taste. 4 hours works well for us.Then store in refrigerator, it will also get even thicker in the refrigerator. The yogurt will lask for 1 week.
          ***This reciepe makes about 7-8 of those bottles. We give half to our friends. Sorry,I can give the reciepe for a smaller batch. We’ve always made it with 4litres of milk.

          Once you try your first batch and you’re successful, then just tinker it. There is also a lot of good youtube videos. Ours is a combination of several from youtube. I hope this works for you.

          • It’s nice to know big thanks πŸ™‚

      Hi there, how funny someone else likes Phebe :-D. Actually I like the whole show as well, because it’s just so simple and easy to relax with. I don’t watch much TV, but in the evening when I do my “before bed” things, I turn this show on. I like to go to bed by 10-11pm, show is on from 10-12pm, so I just have to Make myself to turn it off to get my sleep, sometimes I do, sometimes I just have to see “little more”. Yet I have seen most of all the series, LOL. Hope your day is going great!

  • Kharla

    • I want to try Crossfit, I always watch the competitions and I love it!

  • eliza

    I actually have time to type my answers today (holiday in Canada) I love “Jessica Fletcher” aka Angela Lansbury in Murder She Wrote…love the simplicity of the show and all the starring guest actors that appeared over the years. Favorite time of day is definitely morning! I am an early bird so the calmness of the day is so beautiful at that time. I also sit with my coffee and have catch up with emails and FB at that time…best alone time ever! then I usually go for a good long dog walk, this brings me a great deal of happiness, the dogs are always their silliest early! I get very excited about activities with my 17 year old daughter…usually friday nights are “our nights” and we go to movies/tourist stuff/hang out etc and I just love being with her. I don’t really read a lot of magazines…I love to read books, but my Toronto Life magazine that comes monthly gets read cover to cover instantly!

    • Sometimes I take one of my dogs for a 2 hours walk, my other little dog cant’ really handle it, so I just take 1 of them and she loves it.

  • saretta

    HI all!
    1. I don’t watch Tv, so no fav characters.
    2. My fav time of day is morning, especially Sunday mornings when no one has to get up early and I can sleep as late as I like πŸ™‚
    3. Most excited about an interpreting job I did with a VIP, we were accompanied by police escort wherever we went and everyone kissed by hand and bowed to me all the time – very fun!
    4. In the mornings I like to sleep in more than anything else, but once I’m up the perfect morning is when I am alone, don’t have to work and can just do whatever I want whenever I want. This almost never happens as a working mom.
    5. My favorite magazine is Instyle. Just love to look at the pics and get inspired!

    Have a great week everyone!

    • Good for you girl, TV can be very addiction and take our time away from the important things! I only watch a little before I go to sleep, it seems to make me nice and sleepy

  • Hi Tati and everyone.
    1) Who is your favorite Tv character and why? I love Jon Stewart, Bill Maher and Ellen Degeneres beause they all have one thing in common: a great sense of humor. I prefer the first two ones, but I also like Ellen very much. I also have favorite TV characters in the Italian television but I guess nobody would know who they are, aside people living in my country.
    2) What is my favorite time of the day and why? I think evening and early night because I’m not an early morning type of person.
    3) Lately what have you been excited about the most? A new project I’m working (work-related).
    4) What is your favorite thing to do in the morning? Read the newspaper and check my e-mail.
    5) What is your favorite magazine? An Italian magazine called “L’Espresso” and, from a merely aesthetic point of view, Vogue (especially the Italian edition, because it’s particularly sophisticated). Then there are lots of online magazines that I love, mainy fitness related.

    • Oooooh my gosh I ADORE Jon Stewart! I don’t know if Tatianna meant our favorite characters or personalities, or maybe she meant either, but I was thinking “characters.” If I had answered personalities then Jon would have been top of my list. I get so depressed watching the news in the US, especially with all the BS going on and the election, and he can make me feel okay and better about everything by laughing at it. When I was living in Italy for a few months in college it was during the first George W Bush debacle with recounting votes, etc., and my host family laughed and said, “your politics are just as messed up as ours!” I don’t know if that’s true, but it made me laugh. πŸ™‚

      • I think I misinterpreted Tati’s question and perhaps by “character” she didn’t mean “personality”. Anyway I adore Jon Stewart too. And yes, the Italian political situation is just as messed up as yours back then, and possibly even more. Mr. Berlusconi, our former prime minister, has been a complete disaster for the country from various points of view. πŸ™‚

  • Esal1

    Who is your favorite television character and why? – Coach, from Cheers! Good heart and smarter then he appeared.
    Which is your favorite time of the day and why? – ???
    Lately, what have you been exited about the most? – Been building a website for my new business adventure (NOT venture). So for those wondering why I am online all the time. Ta Da!
    What is your favorite thing to do in the morning? – Big cup of coffee, read all the funny and cool comments on our FB and plan my morning WO.
    What is your favorite magazine? – They still make magazines? No favorite I guess, depends on what I am looking for. Maybe Preservation, cause I love old buildings, maybe Sailing World. New Yorker. ?????

    • Your new business adventure? A new website? Sounds very interesting. If you ever feel like sharing with us (even with the ones who are not as good at MU’s as you are), I’d love to hear more of your new project.

    • I’ve never seen Cheers,

      OMG I am exited about your website, are you gonna tell us when it’s ready?

  • Alenka

    Hello to everybody πŸ™‚
    Excited right now, I just figured out how to login here LOL.

    1.) Favorite TV character – Nothing sophisticated really. About all from Sandra Bullock. If I had to pick, it would be Miss Congeniality, where she snorts when laughing πŸ™‚ . I guess I can identify with that. But seriously, I think she is smart, rascal, and is cute even when she is downright plain. I like her humor and that she has no problem to make a fun of her own self.
    2.) Favorite time of the day- is the morning (before anybody gets up if applicable). That is my selfish moment of the day where don’t have to worry about anybody else. Just quiet moment peace of mind I like to steal for myself.
    3.) Lately i have been most excited about, I know I repeat, about finding this site, and trying several things I read about here. Also I was very excited about making my own natural body-wash :-).
    4.) Favorite thing to do in the morning – to have my breakfast and sip cup of coffee, while I read what new on sites I like, and enjoy the quiet before the Day wakes up too.:-)
    5.) Favorite magazine – Internet. I know I will sound cheap, but I hate to spend 5+$ for something that I can find on Internet. πŸ™

    • Hi Sweetie,

      I got your email :), we definitely do have a lot of things in common.

      I totally agree with you, there are better things to spend your money on than magazines, I usually read them in the store :)))

      • Alenka

        LOL, now that’s an idea :)!

  • Anya

    Hi Tatiana!

    What do you eat if you are working out early in the morning (or late at night?) I can’t seem to find a good snack to digest fast enough. Any tips?

    Thank you for all your work and exercises, I love them.


    • An apple and a spoon of natural peanut butter.

  • 1) Chelsea Handler is hilarious, love her but I also love Ellen DeGeneres, she is also very funny and my kids love to watch her with me. Also, Katy Segal of Sons of Anarchy. I have watched her since her time on Married with Children to Eight Rules to Dating my Teenager Daughter to Lost. She can go from comedy to drama and still be amazing. She is also an outstanding singer. Very diverse actress.
    2) Some time in the evening is my favorite because everyone is home and the house is filled with laughter and silliness πŸ™‚
    3) I have been excited about our new business venture. My husband and I are building together and it is wonderful. Being a military family in the past and spending so much time apart, this is new, different and very exciting.
    4) I think this is a family show πŸ™‚ so I will say that the thing I love to do in the morning is have a coffee and go through emails and link onto your site to see what’s new and what folks have to say πŸ™‚
    5) I don’t really have a favorite magazine but when I am waiting at the grocery store line I tend to pick up the cooking or housekeeping style magazines.

    To all my fellow Canadians “Gobble ’til you Wobble πŸ™‚ Happy Thanksgiving”


    • OMG I love Katy Segal, I used to watch Married with Children all the time, such are funny show.

  • sus

  • Isa

    Happy Monday everyone πŸ™‚

    Fave tv character – at the moment it is Dean Pelton from Community – his character is just brilliant and so funny

    Fave time of the day – when I get home from work and make myself a hot cup of tea and just flop on the sofa

    most excited about – leaving my job – Current one is a bit like a prison sentence so in 6 weeks time I’ll be free – for a little while until I find another!

    Fave thing to do in the morning – without sounding like a cheesy fan girl – its checking new posts here on lovingfit with more tea πŸ™‚

    Fave magazine – House & Garden – dreams of having my own house will one day come true…I hope….I have about 2 large boxes full of interiors cuttings in anticipation!

    • Isa, I love the house decoration magazines, wow I can spend hours watching at the pictures hahaha.

    • Congrats on your freedom! I totally know what it feels like, I remember leaving the job I couldn’t stand it was the most amazing experience ever.

  • Hello everyone,
    1. He is not my favorite character because I do not watch TV, the only thing that I really want to see chapter after chapter is “The Walking Dead” so Daryl Dixon would be the character I like the most.
    2. My favorite time of the day is in the evening when my friends of Mexico have the morning,(I live in The Netherlands) so we can chat a little, I also like to take a cup of coffee in the evening that is cold (No cookie, I promise) and maybe watch a movie on tv or read my books.
    3. I have not been exited, (I wish) I have been worrying, I want to go to Mexico soon, it has been 2 years and I miss my family, my friends, and THE FOOD! For one reason or the other this trip was not possible before and right now seems too difficult, but I really really want to. πŸ™
    4.My favorite thing to do in the morning is sleep, Im sorry I do not wake up early, not at all XD
    5. I used to buy fashion magazines but then I realized I never read them, So I stopped buying any kind of magazines. I read books though.

    ps. What perfume do you want to get? Is it the “Catch me” from Cacharel? I have seen the commercial and looks interesting, hehe.

    • Alenka

      Hello Mily, I can definitely identify with you living so far from your family. I always count the time and guess if my mom may be on computer. She does the same about me. But this is just awesome compared to a few years ago, when there was no Skype, which we use, and it was so expensive to call. Then there was Skype, but mom did not have a pc, and did not think she could learn to use it. Little more time passed by, and now she chats on skype with me like a champ:-). I am very thankful for technology for that very reason. I don’t get to go visit very often, as it also cost so much, but about every 3-4 years. Then when I go, I make sure to make it all worth it. I hope you get to go soon, and have a safe, fulfilling trip. πŸ™‚

      • Hello Alenka, yes absolutely everything is easier with the technology, it is so easy to be in contact or even send a short message. Thanks for your comment, I hope it too πŸ™‚

    • The Walking Dead is another great show, I’ve already seen both seasons, loved it.

      I want to go to Mexico too, when I went it was the most amazing time I’ve ever had, and the food is incredible, all the beautiful fruits AHHH

      I will let you know about the perfume once I get it ( It’s not Cacharel )

  • Gerri Lee Schafer

  • Hi Jacqueline πŸ™‚

    I think your comment posted twice, I wrote a reply to the other one but Disquss is having some slow problems today and the comment is not posting for some reason.

    • Thanks, I’m new to Disquss, so when my first comment disappeared I thought it got deleted or something and post it again.

  • Christian

    Hi all!! Wow its been a while since i Mingle.

    1. My favourite TV character is Phoebe from Friends. ( I watched the whole serious twice few years a go)
    2. My favourite time of the day is in the evenings after the kids go to bed, get to spend some time with my hubby and plan my WO for the next day!
    3. My hubby is building me raised bed for my veggie garden, i can’t wait to see it finished!
    4. My favourite thing to do in the morning is drink my tee and eat breakfast with hubby and the kids
    5. I don’t have a favourite magazine, i prefer books.

    • That is lovely, you grow your own veggies, such an inspirations, I want to learn how to do that, but I am terrible with plants

  • **Who is your favorite television character and why?**
    The first one that popped into my head is the one I’m going with: Al Swearengen from Deadwood. First of all, I think it’s the best show that television has probably ever produced. Ever. The writing and acting are TOP NOTCH. It IS very violent, but it’s also strangely Shakespearean. There are loads of characters I love from that show, but Al is, essentially, the bad guy you love. And the acting of the actor who plays him, Ian McShane, is some of the best I’ve ever seen. I didn’t know I would like the Wild West before I saw this show, but I actually love how that scenario allows you to bring all characters from all backgrounds down on the same level. Aristocrats, criminals, prostitutes, ladies, merchants–all are in some ways equal, and all are just trying to survive and start a life. Other characters I love on that show that come to close seconds are Calamity Jane and Trixie. Also love Game of Thrones: Tyrion, Arya, Danaerys. But I’ve read the books. so those characters are much more fleshed out to me than the tv shows makes them.

    **Which is your favorite time of the day and why?**
    I am a vampire–I love dusk through night to dawn. I like getting things done in the daytime, but either nighttime or when night is about to fall or is just ending is when I feel most peaceful and reflective. I also love walks at night.

    **Lately, what have you been exited about the most?**
    Honestly, it’s been spending time with myself and learning new things that make me happy. I think I’m in a phase of rebuilding parts of myself and moving to the next level, so I like reflection, meditation, and finding happiness in simple things.

    **What is your favorite thing to do in the morning?**
    I’m with you–my cup of coffee is absolutely divine! I love it!

    **What is your favorite magazine?**
    I don’t have one. I used to get Bon Appetit, but couldn’t keep up with it and got overwhelmed. I don’t cook as much as I used to. I read books. I like to always have one or two that I’m reading–usually one fiction and one inspirational. πŸ™‚

    Happy Monday everyone!

    • Gerri Lee Schafer

      damn….I drew such a blank about tv shows…lol…..I LOVE Deadwood, best show ever…not for the faint of heart though…great characters….Justified is pretty good too

      • Oooooo yes!!! Such a wonderful show! They were supposed to do 4 seasons, but stopped after 3.

    • I was moved by your comment about what you have been excited about the most. I have had the most difficult part….its well worth it and it will get better πŸ™‚ *hugs*

    • You got me all interested in that show, I know if you say it’s the best, I know it is! Now, where can I find it, I’ve never seen it on netflix nor blockbuster.

      I am a vampire as well :))), stay up till 5 am every day, I also love my walks at night, I like to go around 12 am :).

      I am so happy you are learning more about your self, we all go through these phases in life and reflecting is a beautiful thing. Have you ever tried Chakra meditation? I used to do it all the time, it’s quite powerful, makes you have very vivid dreams and literally read thoughts of others. Strong stuff.

      • Deadwood! Well, it was on HBO, so honestly, the only way to get it would be to rent it, I think. I hate telling people I love a movie or show and then having them watch it becuase I realize I may have ruined it, blowing it up so much! When I started watching, I thought I wouldn’t like it at all. I thought there wouldn’t be very many deep or interesting female characters, but boy, was I wrong! There’s a wonderful assortment. πŸ™‚

        I haven’t tried chakra meditation, but I am SO on it now! I would love vivid dreams as long as they’re not about me taking tests naked in school, LOL. I’ll check it out–I love finding out about all that stuff.

        • You are so funny girl, I’g gonna look for that show, I know I’m gonna love it.

          Definitely try Chakra meditation, make sure you close the chakras after you done, cause you don’t want anythings getting through your personal energy, but it’s very powerful and it makes you very aware of everything.

  • Happy thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians.
    1. I tend to like the whole cast of a show than a specific character. I really enjoy arrested development and the big bang theory. All the characters in these two shows contributes equally; the totality of them all makes the show what it is to me. I PVR both shows…they are the only TV series I currently watch.
    2. I’ve never thought about this. I refer to work out early in morning, so I’m usually up on weekdays 4:20am. I’m not sure if this means I like mornings.
    3. The farm! The farm!! The farm!!! My waking and sleeping hours are preoccupied with something about the farm.
    4. Favourite thing to do in morning is working out; and on weekends is to sleep in.
    5. Cookinglight and Vanityfair.

    • tee_w

      so what kind of farming will you be doing?

      • Hi Tee,
        We’re going to try organic vegetables & chicken. I’m looking into getting a milking goat. Hubby is looking into cows, but I think having cows might be too much work for two people. We’re also getting 4 ridding horses…maybe my avatar, he belongs to the current owners.

        • tee_w

          wow, that’s ambitious! horses are a lot of work, are you working at jobs too, or will this now be your job? I hope it goes well for you! exciting!

          • We’re leaving our jobs; the hope is to eventually make a living from the farm in 5 years if we can. My only farm experience is as a tree planter for 2 years and a cook for tree planters for 3 years (if I can call that farming experience.)<3

          • tee_w

            wow you are brave! πŸ™‚ and its even more exciting!

          • This sounds amazing!!! Hard work, for sure, but very satisfying.

    • Happy Thanks Giving Lvette!

      Ahh the farm! Sounds so peaceful, I dream of the farm far far aways someday!

  • Evaleen

    1. Who is your favorite television character and why?
    My answer is pretty much like Lvette’s, I like some individual characters but love love LOVE a great ensemble! Every favorite show of mine (new, old, or animated) is centered around a group or duo that have great chemistry with each other.

    2. Which is your favorite time of the day and why?
    Early morning, after sunlight has pierced the sky and everything is painted gold. πŸ™‚

    3. Lately, what have you been exited about the most?
    Nothing ‘eventful’ as of late, but I’m always looking forward to the little things πŸ˜€ trying new recipes, going to the cinema, etc.

    4. What is your favorite thing to do in the morning?
    Other than sleeping in? xD I’d say taking a walk in the woods, or cooking breakfast.

    5. What is your favorite magazine?
    I never read magazines, just various articles on the internet. :p

    • It’s been so long since I’ve taken a walk in the woods, really miss it.

      The sky in the mornings is gorgeous, sometimes I don’t go to sleep till 6 am, so I can just watch the sunrise ( I work late ).

  • tee_w

    – Who is your favorite television character and why? probably Shamy (sheldon & amy) big bang, and I like Ellen Degeneras. I like to laugh!
    – Which is your favorite time of the day and why? from 8pm until 2am! I usually take my dinner break at work around 8pm and eat my dinner and get online checking all of you out! lol then I finish up work, leaving the easiest stuff for the end, go home & chill out, chat with my kids, maybe hubby if he’s not already in bed, and just chillax until bedtime around 2am
    – Lately, what have you been exited about the most? I’m always excited about figuring out what my workouts are going to be and finding new recipes for my new way of eating!
    – What is your favorite thing to do in the morning? I sleep in the morning! bed is most comfy then! lol but my morning is most people’s lunch time – and I love to workout then!
    – What is your favorite magazine? I haven’t really bought a magazine for years! but I used to like Shape, Oxygen and various bodybuilding magazines, and I hardly ever bought it but I liked Mad magazine, but nowadays I read blogs – my favourite is NomNomPaleo, as she updates it almost everyday, has great food and recipes and I just find it fascinating to see what other people eat! lol I would love to have her magic defrosting bowl! always something in it ready to make for supper! incredible!

    • Another Big Bang fan!! πŸ™‚ I love Shamy too!

    • Courtney

  • Hello my Sweeties,

    I’ve been swamped with work all day today, it’s 3 am and I just got done editing and subtitling another video. I will read through all of your mingles when I wake up in the morning, while drinking my Coffee.

    And I have a new upper body workout ready for you, it’s already uploaded to youtube I just have to write the post.

    Kisses and Hugs,


  • 1: fav. actor : Anthony Hopkins ( yes why?)
    2: late in the evening , relax moment after work ( and workout …..heavenly)

    3: It’s a spiritual revealing ; Anita Moorjani who came back after a near death experience with a very clear message for all of us . Her experience went beyond religion. If you are interested girls .. I highly recommend the ( early) interview she gave on Y Tube ( ) This revealing was very comforting and guiding for me. One of her insights when she came back was: We don’t realize that we are actually perfect the way we are; We are born perfect but spend a lifetime trying to be something we’re not, and then feel inadequate for failing. Your only purpose is to be YOURSELF. Otherwise you will deprive the univers of who you came here to be.( A. Mooorjani)
    4: HΓ©las ; eating
    5; No fav. magazine

    • I’m gonna run to check that out right now, I am all about this stuff, I was actually just watching a program about near death experiences yesterday, thank you so much for this link.

    • OMG I absolutely love this interview! Shared it on FB, I cried watching it… Because I know what the woman was talking about… I know about the afterlife, I’ve connected to my grandfather before, he gave me a very powerful message about my life, and every time I see stories like that I just get so emotional.

      • Wow how blessed you are to have connected to your grandfather! May be one day you share me (or us) your story. I sensed that you for your age , (but then spirituality has nothing to do with age I guess ) were on a high spiritual level. Anyways I’m very glad I got to know this wonderful lady . I believe her intentions are very pure.
        She says that we’re all one conscience , only the physical body separates us. And t h a t is exactly what I am feeling in my work as an osteopath. My life changed in a good way after I read her book an listened to her interviews. Thank you for sharing it on FB. For people who are ready to hear this , I hope it can help them as it helped me.<3 <3 <3

        • Thank you dear,

          I’ve been studying this for years and had a few out of body experiences of my own, I’ve made videos about spirituality in Russian on my channel only, I always try to teach people that we are all one conscience, and that we are all connected, we also all draw inspiration from that same one source. Meditation gets’ us in touch with it, and once you feel it one time it’s always there, no turning back. Sometimes people ask me how do I know all this information and which books did I learn that from, but I always tell them that this information is available through our subconsciousness, if we look for it, it will show it self.

          • We come into each others life for a reason. I’m so glad you came into mine <3

          • Yes I agree :), we always meet the people we are meant to meet, and we attract the one’s who are like us. I am glad you came into my life as well <3

    ok….had to post again… of my favorite tv shows is from England and it’s called Shameless….the US tried doing a copy of it, but it sucked after seeing the original ….my favorite character is Frank…if you get a chance to see the original grab it

    • Isa

      haha first person I have ever come across who likes that show….

  • Courtney

    I don’t know how I managed to miss this one all week. These are some good questions!
    1. Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones. I love his wit; he’s extremely sarcastic and clever. I think the thing that makes him so awesome is that he’s human. A lot of books or television shows create these perfect characters that never screw up. Tyrion puts up this mental armor that makes him seem impenetrable, but he’s still vulnerable. Peter Dinklage does an amazing job of playing him too. If you haven’t seen Game of Thrones then I highly recommend it. The books are wonderful too, but definitely a read you have to commit too because they’re not short and you will be drawn in. I had to devote my summer to the series.
    2. This is a tough one because I think there are about three times that I love. I love early morning before I’ve left the house, when I’m not in too big of a hurry. And I love the evening when I’m getting into bed. And my third favorite time would be the middle of the night, when I’m actually sleeping. I love to sleep. πŸ™‚
    3. I have been excited about fall! I love it! Fall food, fall decorations, fall colors, fall clothes, fall weather! It’s so wonderful! Although Texas gets the fall weather a little late. Correction… very late. We probably won’t be getting cooler temperatures until the middle of November, and that’s if we’re lucky.
    4. My favorite morning ritual is to sit down and enjoy my coffee and spend some time with God. I like to read my bible and a devotional. I particularly love weekend mornings because I get to nurse my coffee and I’m not spending every second glancing at the clock to see if it’s time to start getting ready.
    5. My favorite magazines are Austin Fit and Martha Stewart’s Whole Living.

  • Courtney

    I love that you mention silence as part of your morning. I also love my morning silence. I didn’t realize until my younger sister stayed with me one weekend and just would not shut up! Morning silence is SO important.
