After being unwilling to shell out the 100 bucks needed to purchase the coasters, I realized I should try the DIY route. I like to use this strategy for pretty much everything.

Exactly what I was hoping for.

THE MOST GRIPPING TV SHOWS YOU (AND YOUR PARTNER) NEED TO BE WATCHING NOW

THE MOST GRIPPING TV SHOWS YOU (AND YOUR PARTNER) NEED TO BE WATCHING NOW

There are some seriously gripping TV shows that are on right now (or aired in recent months). If you haven't seen them yet, grab your partner or a friend, a bottle of red wine, some kettle corn and settle in for some major marathon-ing. The best thing about these selections is that they are, for the most part, gender neutral. These are shows Paul and I watched together and BOTH loved equally, which is rare. When you're prone to shows like Crazy Ex-girlfriend and Sex and the City, it's not all that easy to get your male counterpart on board. Not with these.
