It's time for another Monday Mixer!

So what exactly do I mean? Here's a quick definition: Mixer /ˈmiksər/ n. An informal party arranged to give people an opportunity to get acquainted.

How it works: I will list off several random things and you can feel free to respond with comments on how you can/cannot relate or maybe even with your own random Monday list!  Let's do this!

My fingers are double-jointed. 

I am in love with white furniture. It's so chic.

I am the only person in my family who does not drink coffee... even my two-year-old nephew loves it!

My latest obsession is Seinfeld. I find it hilarious and entertaining.

I crave chocolate daily.

I'm slowly learning that less is more and small is the new big.

I finished my Christmas shopping early this year. *High-five myself*

Today is my half-birthday!  Meaning it's exactly 6 months until my actual birthday... Yay!

I believe in the power of prayer.

Mexican food can solve all problems.  It does for me anyway.

My husband amazes me daily with his incredible patience for me.

Brrr! I hate being cold. Bring on the warm sunshine!

Adoption is still a growing passion in my heart. One day, Lord-willing.

I (heart) scarves. Functional fashion!

We now have a television. And it's awesome.

I LOVE getting emails from people interested in photo shoots (yasmin@yasminsarai.com) and bringing beautiful ideas to life. Fun stuff!


Feel free to post your own fun facts in the comments! Happy Monday y'all!

    and I absolutely cannot stand the taste of coffee!..Def. a hot choc lady anyday!
    Although Downton Abbey is my latest obsession, I also believe in the power of prayer and I'd rather the summer than winter.

  4. I loooove coffee. With milk (which makes it less strong). Cafe con leche!

    I love earrings!

    I also get cold easily.

    I also believe in the power of prayer.

    I also--Oh wait, that's why we're best friends, and you know all of this already! ;)


    I've recently watched all of the movies made for Jane Austen's books.

    I love cooking but hate starting the process.

    I still have my Christmas decor up.

    Toodles! <3

  5. White furniture, yes please!!! I am starting to get way too much white though ;)

    Way to go on the Christmas shopping, next year I will get on it earlier.
    Amen for prayer
    Not a fan of Mexican food, but Israeli, yes ;)
    Some random facts: I drink my English Breakfast tea daily with milk and I'm also a coffee lover! I love blogging and reading! This year I bought more clothes than in the last few years put together! I love NYC and have yet to go to Europe, 2013?
    And you're super fun!!!

    1. My favorite chocolate is dark! I hope to visit NYC sometime in the future :)
