You were hosting yet another holiday party. The living room had been lit up with garlands and Christmas lights, decorations here and there. Derek sat with a scowl on his face, his arms crossed, his brooding manner never wavering.
“Oh come on, Derek.” You said, placing a bowl of chips down on the coffee table. He rolled his eyes, and turned ever so slightly away from you.
“Come on, it’ll be nice to have the pack over.” You add. He shakes his head, and uncrosses his arms. He goes to say something, but the doorbell rings as he does. He groans, and you laugh as you go to answer the door.
A few teens stumbled in, smiles on their faxes as they came in. You took the few gifts from their hands, and placing them under the tree.
“I hate Christmas.” Derek muttered. “Come on kids!” You exclaimed, turning to look back at Derek.
“Come meet the Grinch!” You heard a few laughs as you pecked Derek’s cheek, and, proceeded to play some music.
You danced around the coffee table, grabbing a few empty glasses, Christmas music playing softly in the background. You hummed along, as you placed the glasses in the sink, feeling Derek’s presence behind you.
You turned, and smiled up at him. He gives a half smile, and wraps his arms around you, a most sentimental moment for the two of you.
“Whoa, you ok?” You ask, laughing a bit as he pulls back. He nods, and looks down for a moment.
“You don’t really think I’m the Grinch, right?” He asked quietly. You laugh, and shake you head, your hands resting on his shoulders.
“Of course not. Only at Christmas.” He rolls his eyes, and leans in for a kiss. You smiles, as his lips find yours, connecting in utter bliss. You pull back after a moment, and sigh.
“Maybe Christmas isn’t so bad after all.” He mutters.
Throwback to when it was hot AF because its cold as hell rn. Querencia is an amazing company that makes their clothes out of recycled plastic in Guatemala via a biomass-free factory powered thru wood chips and coffee extract. Also there’s no dye used on their pieces so they save up to 9x the amount of water as the usual dye process. Wish more brands would be as productive and respectable.

“A crappy workout is better than no workout.”
Just know that you will not magically get a body that looks exactly like Alexis’s because you were born differently than her, and your bone structure may be different as well as your genetics. Please keep that in mind. To get rid of fat from your body, incorporate cardio into your workouts and to tone your body up, do strength training workouts. You will see results whenever you lose unwanted fat.

So there’s this really great local ice cream shop in my town that lets customers submit names for the flavors. I went there today and saw that their coffee/chocolate-chip ice cream is now named “Wake Me Up Before You Cocoa.”
