Happy Lunar New Year

This was originally suppose to go with my MMM post this week but no matter how I wrote it, or edited it, I just wasn’t happy with it. So there wasn’t an MMM post this week.

But it’s still Lunar New Year and I still want to post about it! We’re suppose to go see the Dragon Dance this weekend but it’s looking like a low of 12 degree’s this weekend. And a low of ONE FREAKIN DEGREE on Monday. I’m a Floridian ya’ll. And a Californian before that. HOW DO YOU SURVIVE THIS SHIT. I’m literally scared. As someone who has anemia and eczema that’s triggered by cold — I’m going to wrap myself in hella fleece blankets constantly applying the thickest hand cream I have. ALL DAY. Otherwise ya girl is gonna get wrecked.

For as long as I can remember my mom has always celebrated Chinese New Year by giving us red envelopes and scattering symbols of luck around the house. I have my own “good luck” decor that I admit I haven’t put up yet! I keep saying I’ll organize my desk and I just… haven’t. I mean, I have, but I haven’t the way I want to. It’s so overwhelming! And just by doing that small thing every year, it ended up being something I looked forward to and something I want to keep going in my life and in Tums.

Last year I had planned to spend it at Disneyland since they do a thing for it over there; but B was set on us leaving Tums here with his parents while we went and being in the midst of postpartum depression there was no fuckin way I was going to leave her so I ended up just cancelling the trip. I really wish they’d crash course people on PPD when you’re doing all that hospital tour shit. This year Disneyland is closed.

I do go to a celebration in GP where they have food and a Dragon Dance, but because of Covid, I’m not sure what it’s going to be like this year. That and the weather is ridic at 12* not to mention Texans act like they can’t drive in the cold and there’s been accidents everywhere. There was a 100 car pile up this week. Like, really, how. And it wasn’t even snowing, but it was sleet I guess? I think that’s what B had said.

Last year I also celebrated by grabbing a new CNY themed products from MAC and Sugarfina, thankfully Colourpop’s Mulan collection shipped before then as well; this year MAC came out with the same products but different packaging. I had hoped for something with an Ox on it. So instead this year I got something from Colourpop’s collection and of course Sugarfina.

The year of the Ox is my year, so I’m a bit bat shit crazy this year about it.

Earlier in March we took a trip to Dallas cause I wanted to check out the Easter collection at LUSH and we were planning on heading to the Dallas Farmers Market but ended up going to another mall instead. Whomp. Some day I’ll make it to that Farmers Market!

Tbh I wish I could spend more time in Dallas, there’s so much to see and do and discover there!

We did head to my favorite mall and I saw that Sugarfina had successfully finished moving into their bigger store. So I made a small haul purchase.

But we’re not here to talk about that, we’re here to talk about the Bunny Bark!
