3 Things Thursday – Week 29

Thanks for stopping by to read this week’s 3 Things Thursday. Today I have three very random things to share with you but they are held together with one little thread; they all make me smile πŸ™‚

1. Thanksgiving & Family
This year, as usual, we had two family dinners. One was at my MIL’s house where we had the traditional, massive turkey with all the fixings. The we had a dinner at my mom’s house with individual game hens, amazing scalloped potatoes and vegetables made by my sister who is in culinary school. It was nice to spend the weekend with family. Β On FB, I saw so many Thanksgiving family photos, so we were inspired to take our own family selfie to capture the fun long weekend, (which was slightly photo-bombed by my chef sister.)

2. Friends
I love the show Friends! I can probably repeat conversations that happened on the show by heart such as Chandler saying,” Despite the yummy bagels and palpable tension,” when Rachel came in with Paolo or Ross telling Joey about how his tailer measure pants, “Yes, that’s how they do it…in prison!!!”

I already loved the show but my obsession deepened when I first moved to Winnipeg after getting married. I didn’t really know anyone and my husband was busy at school, so Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe and Joey kind of became my friends, (yes, I know it’s a little sad.)Β There is a reason I’m telling you all this. As part of theΒ Netflix CanadaΒ #streamteam, I got an email this morning telling me that the complete Friends series will be available on Netflix starting January first, the perfect day to stay in and binge watch your (my) favourite show! Of course I had to share this exciting news with all of you πŸ™‚

3. Tea Cups
They’re so small but they are pretty fabulous! My husband and I recently secured six small yet awesome tea cups and saucers. I’ve never been a big one for china, but these just called out to me for some reason and now they are in our cupboards. And no, we don’t just save them for guests, we use them whenever we want to enjoy a nice cup of chai.

  1. brownies and ice cream with a rocking game of Clue (or any other board game) at someone’s place. who doesn’t like any one of those three things?

  2. I love friends… it helped me through my second’s newborn days!! ANd I love drinking chai for a lovely tea-cup as well…. so much more civilized πŸ™‚

  3. What fun things to make you smile this week! You have such a cute family! My daughter just told me that friends was coming on Netflix – we never really watched it, so it will give us something new to enjoy. πŸ™‚

  4. I might watch Friends from the start to the end. There was a lot of the last couple seasons that I missed because of where I was in my life. So, it might be nice to see it all the way through.

  5. I love the idea of three things Thursday, (and enjoy Friends here in the states, too! I can definitely picture the episode with Joey’s visit to the tailor who measures pants the way the do in prison!). Now, if I can ever figure out how to make WordPress let me put up a badge, I might just join you!

    1. The tailor episode was a classic! And it would be great if you want to join in #3thingsthursday. If you can’t figure out the badge, join in anyway!!

  6. love it! i’d like to take part in the three things thursday. fun and whimsy…. okay, the same way you are about friends, my whole family is like that about Will & Grace. quotes from the show come up in our every day conversation. its fun for us but a little sad. have you ever been to the warner brothers studio tour in california? they have so many things from the friends set. if you would like, i could email you my pictures from it. its pretty cool. another fact, after syndication, each star on friends earns $20 million dollars PER YEAR for the rest of their lives. it was that successful. thats just ludicrous.
    anyway, loved your article, as i was not familiar with the three things. maybe some time you could write about 3 things you loved as a kid, maybe toys. πŸ˜‰

    1. You should definitely join in with #3ThingsThursday Melody!! Will and Grace was a great show too! I knew they earned a lot but I didn’t know it was that much!!

  7. You have a beautiful family! I’m right there with you when it comes to teacups. I’ve started collecting them. They’re so much more fun than mugs and glasses.

  8. I love your three things, Salma. And what an adorable family you have. All 4 of you are beautiful. Yes, I love friends too. I’d like to invite your sister to my house to cook for me. And I love your little tea set. πŸ™‚

  9. Happy belated thanksgiving, and glad to hear of someone else who enjoys Friends as much as I do. I think I could recite many of the episodes too. As for the tea, I need the BIIIIIGGGG mugs πŸ˜‰
