Do you ever get addcited to Netflix?! Gosh, it is SOOO dangerous. As soon as I start a show I am hooked like obsessed, its not normal. But I can’t help it. Every chance I get lunch break at work I open my laptop to watch, sitting at the bank I put my earphone in and watch on my phone, late at night I watch.. literally any spare chance I get I watch. My latest addiction?! Scandal! Damn this show is good. I should have known coming from the writer of Grey’s Anatomy.

Well two weeks later I have finished the first two seasons. But it was confusing at times because I would watch current shows on Thursdays then watch the previous seasons but then in a previous season they would look back in time so it was like I had three time periods, I kept getting confused.

Now what to watch next?! Anyone? Ideas please! Not that I have any spare time in my schedule. I am lucky really that Scandal only had two seasons or else I wouldn’t be typing this blog post right now. I would still be laying on the sofa, but I would totally be watching Scandal!!!

I’m not lying my mom just turned on netflix Mad Men but I already completed those 5 0r 6 seasons. But I did just sing along with the opening music LOL

So, these Bailey’s Mint Truffles? You need them in YO life! I popped a few too many of these. Okay all of last week I popped a few too many truffles. I had a bag of Lindt Lindor Truffles at my desk at the Santa Ana Location and a tin of Roses on my desk at the Fullerton location. Maybe thats why my face started to look like a pepperoni pizza. Truffles for breakfast, lunch and snack is probably not the best diet. #oops

Anyways back to these truffles, it was the Port Party at work last naturally I made truffles. And naturally I added booze, because booze is necessary in truffles. Well, in my world anyway.

I rolled the truffles in chocolate jimmies and in sweetened cocoa powder. I couldn’t decide which I liked better, the powder made such a smooth truffle but the sprinkles created nice combination of textures. So I ate both :)

These truffles look so good! I have some Baileys leftover at the moment – thinking I need to put it to good use! And yes on getting addicted to Netflix … it’s so so bad. We got rid of cable when we moved but I feel like I almost watch more TV with Netflix! haha
