When we moved into our house, one of the first arguments my wife and I had was over whether I'd be allowed to show off my NES collection in the built-in bookshelves. I don't want to say I was right, but can you guess what 90% of our guests comment on when they enter the room?😉

#riotgrams are almost over and today is #favoritehobby so besides reading, here is mine. I love me some video games! It's my go-to for de-stressing. 🙂 And Nintendo is to blame for cultivating the gamer in me. All that Mario and Donkey Kong and Chrono Trigger! Love it! 🎮

A welcome distraction for the moment, since I'm having trouble reading or concentrating on anything besides... you know. It's even minier than I imagined! #nintendo #nes #nesclassic #videogames #nostalgia #80s #80skid

The new Nintendo Classic Mini is released today. My husband, the gamer geek, is dragging me out to Target this early morning 😆 He anticipates a quick sell out. I shall entertain him.

Btw, I looked at the games included in the system and they're pretty good. I've played most of them during my early early days 😄 So yeah, I'm excited too! Hahaha!

Yep, this book lover here is also a....game lover. Dum dum dum, mwhauauhaha 👍 📚 🎮 ❤ ❤ ❤


Serotonin Bwahahaha!! SOLD OUT! Apparently there was a huge line outside the store before opening. We had no chance 😆 7y
Serotonin This reminds me of when the original Wii was released. Hot cakes 🔥 🎂 🎮 7y

#Preorder alert! #Gaming is my other favorite #hobby, and who didn't love #NES at some point?! Heard about this on the #IGN #Gamescoop podcast and had to run to #Amazon immediately.
