How To Keep Yourself Entertained During a Typhoon

If you stopped by the blog on Friday, you saw that we were preparing for a typhoon around these parts.  I was also preparing for a very boring weekend stuck indoors. Though parts were boring, it ended up being a pretty good weekend.

So how exactly do you go about entertaining yourself during a typhoon when you can't leave the house?? 

Watch the typhoon roll in

Eat an entire bag of baked ruffles 

Facetime your besties across the world

Make quesadillas and famous egg sandwiches

Make and eat ridiculous amounts of pumpkin chocolate chip bread


Stare aimlessly out of the window


Snuggle some more

Buy things you can't live without don't need from Tory Burch

Lust over everything at Target

Blog. Or Just stare at the screen

Catch up on all of your shows

Watch the Cowboys a la Rewind. You do whatcha gotta do for your team

Get out of your yoga pants and leave the house as soon as it's safe

Look for washed up shells

Take selfies in the wind

go eat ramen-and lots of it

Go shopping and drive around when you are supposed to stay indoors
(just kidding, don't do that)

Despite the typhoon(s), it was an enjoyable weekend. It was nice to just sit and relax with the hubs and enjoy the simple things. Thankfully, the typhoons didn't do too much damage. We are still on the tail end of the second one, so we aren't exactly in the clear. We are definitely ready to be done with these typhoons and to be able to get out and explore!

  1. Geez if I can do all that fun stuff I'll take a typhoon any day! Kidding of course! But sounds like it wasn't too bad for y'all!

  2. oh goodness! it looks like you guys had a great weekend considering!

  3. looks like y'all definitely kept yourselves busy!! i love that first pic- so pretty!

  4. Glad you made it through the storm safely! I absolutely love that striped dress and your rain boots! Adorable storm outfit!

  5. That pumpkin bread looks delish! I've never made it before but I want to! That egg sandwich looks great too, I just had one the other day that was incredible.

  6. Glad you made it through the first typhoon safely!

  7. Actually, a day or two in bed, snuggling, eating tasty snacks, and watching movies, and listening to the rain seems kind of like an ideal weekend!


  8. Um, where the heck do you live that you get typhoons? It looks like paradise! Glad you're safe!

    Thanks for linking up for Monday Morning Gossip with Kim ad I :)

  9. Glad to see you made it through! Sometimes it's nice to have a relaxing weekend without having/being able to do anything :)

  10. It looks like you made a good time out of a not-so-great situation! Love it!


  11. What did you get from Tory?? They're having their friends and family sale huh?

  12. Snuggling, Facetime, reading, and NetFlix are my lifesavers during rainstorms, which are frequent (I live in FL... it rains every other 4 seconds). Stopping by from the GFC Collective, and I'd love for you to drop by my blog if you get the chance. Have a great week!

  13. Sometimes forcing yourself to stay in and relax is just what we all need! Glad you survived your first typhoon with little to no damage :)


  14. All things considered this looks like a pretty good weekend :)

  15. Sounds like the perfect way to spend a typhoon to me! That's pretty much how I want to be spending this cold and dreary day here on the boat. Except I don't have my Hunters with me and I already miss them. :) Glad you stayed safe!

  16. sometimes its nice to have an excuse to do all those things

  17. Love the list. Especially the shopping, snuggling and wait a minute!!! Chocolate chips in pumpkin bread? I seriously need to try that.

  18. that pumpkin bread looks sooo yummy and i love the color of your hunter boots! are yours comfy?

  19. I remember doing lots of those things (minus the snuggling as I was alone) during several Typhoons I rode out in Viet Nam. Fun times, especially with lots of rain. We would often lose power so I would read by candle light:) It looks like you guys had fun!

    Stopping by from The Blogger's Digest! I'm now following on Bloglovin:)

  20. You guys are the cutest newlyweds. I am so jealous looking at the photos of you lounging in bed watching shows. Looks so cozy! Those days are long for this new mama. :) Ha! Following on BL. -Andrea


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
