Chrissy Teigen is the advice-giving, Twitter-feud-having, trash-TV-loving, food-appreciating mom friend we all wish we had. She’s also the Official Mayor of Twitter and takes the position seriously by constantly giving us suggestions, recommendations and other various tidbits about the TV shows, movies, recipes and activities we should be spending our time on. It would be weird if we weren’t so into it.
In honour of Chrissy’s birthday this weekend, we’ve sifted through a year’s worth of her tweets (you’re welcome) to find all the best ways to spend it, as told by the woman herself. From cooking to TV to just lying down doing nothing, we’ve curated all Chrissy’s favourite ways to spend her downtime.
So get your planners ready, here are 38 things to do this weekend based on Chrissy Teigen’s Twitter musings:
1. Cook, obviously
2. Cook something not from Cravings
Chrissy doesn’t want you to limit yourself. She’s also a fan of Indian-ish: Recipes and Antics from a Modern American Family from Priya Krishna and Padma Lakshmi and Sababa: Fresh, Sunny Flavors from My Israeli Kitchen by Adeena Sussman.
3. Order in or get takeout

4. Fulfill a life-long dream
You know that thing you’ve wanted to do forever but haven’t taken the time to do yet? Do that thing this weekend. Back in February, Chrissy wished that Taco Bell had a Cool Ranch taco and lo and behold, in August, she fulfilled that dream and made her own. Dreams do come true.

5. Do a face mask
And do it anywhere. In public or otherwise. We believe in you.
Me, wearing face mask. Flight attendant: “are you gonna be like this all night?” Me: “yes!! It’s the best mask ever. From Korea. Collagen! Ugh it’s called….Let me get the package out of the trash so you can see ok one sec” flight attendant: “no I just mean like, awake”

6. Indulge your reality TV obsession
Just watched before the 90 days for 12 hours and realizing I have HORRIBLE judgement. Every single person I first liked turned out to be horrible and everyone bad is now great

7. Watch a documentary
true crime docs are not at all keeping up with my personal demand
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 12, 2019
8. Binge literally anything
Why are we even categorizing this? Chrissy loves almost all forms of bingable TV. Some of her faves are The Affair (watch it here), You, The Act, Dead to Me, Black Mirror, America’s Got Talent, The Handmaid’s Tale (watch it here), The Voice (watch it here) and Escape at Dannemora (watch it here).

9. Binge literally anything while eating
Merge your two passions by eating while binging your latest obsession.

10. Try something new
Shake things up a little by doing one thing you wouldn’t normally do. Try a new food; go to a fitness class you’ve been interested in; take up a new hobby—it’s how we stay sharp.
What’s something you’ve never eaten but probably should have by now? mine is *still* pastrami on rye, and also, bagel with lox/smoked salmon

11. Book yourself a Cameo because you’re worth it

12. Go apple picking
Who doesn’t love apple picking? If it’s not too late in the season, hit up your nearest orchard and get some farm-fresh fruit. It doesn’t have to be just apples either—as long as it’s not the dead of winter, there are likely produce-picking opportunities at your disposal.
Saturday, I was obsessively talking about apple picking. I wouldn’t shutup about it – brought it up in random conversations with friends that had nothing to do with apples. I was insane. Googling farms, sending links to people. begging, begging anyone to listen to me about apples
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 30, 2019
13. Do another seasonal activity
Hit up a haunted house. Go skating or skiing. Plan a hike or picnic. Fly a kite. Go to the beach. Build a snowman.
Haunted houses are one of only two things that excite me as an adult and I’m only saying two as to not offend my husband. Cannot wait for my Halloween horror night at universal, theee videos are killing me. Very jealous!! Sad!!

14. Commit to something stupid and follow through
You know those days when you commit to one thing—maybe it’s a tedious but satisfying project or an internet deep-dive on the Sister Wives family (we’ve been there)—and spend hours focused on it? Have one of those days.
Imagine eating 30 Oreos, slowly swishing them around your mouth. Reading a “found” grocery list. Calling mystery phone numbers. Reading a map. For hours. Then u read the Chris Saunt business card

15. Save the planet (or show your support for someone who’s saving the planet)
The planet is on fire and you can spend your weekend learning all about it or, better yet, getting active in your community to fight it.
🎶 teach them well and let them lead the way 🎶 https://t.co/tulEkqSq7W

16. Find as many uses as you can for pork rinds
Weirdly specific, yes, but it’s definitely something Chrissy would do. After securing a ginormous bag of pork rinds from Thailand, she was on the hunt for ways to use them. Respect.
oh my god. I would like this. pic.twitter.com/PtFvCTE7aE
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 13, 2019
17. Start a book club
Hit up your local library for a book club to join or start your own (where you can drink/eat whatever you want).
I wanna start a chicken soup for the soul book club at the library and we just read to each other and drink wine. Can you legally serve free wine at the library?

Disconnect from everything and feel the stress melt away as Twitter and Instagram become distant memories.
I lost my phone and I honestly don’t care to ever get it back. next step: computer. final step: house in the woods
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 6, 2019
19. Get a colouring book or scratch-and-sketch book
Remember when adult colouring books became a thing and we were all mind-blown that grownups can colour too? Bring back that therapeutic self-care activity or punch it up with a scratch-and-sketch book.
Luna has this “scratch and sketch” book. You use a wooden stylus to scratch off the black like a lotto ticket, then there is color underneath. It’s incredibly soothing if you have anxiety, just enjoy scratch-offs, or both (me) pic.twitter.com/G3JveYABTY

20. Go to a theme park
If you live near a theme park, grab your friends, family or just yourself and head on over.
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 26, 2019
21. Have a garage sale
We could all stand to get rid of a few things, so why not make some cash off them with a garage sale? Alternatively, you could also hit up garage sales or thrift stores in your area if you’re in more of a shopping mood.
I want to have a garage sale and invite my twitter friends but John won’t let me
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 11, 2019
22. Do something you haven’t done since childhood

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 3, 2019
23. Get into a sport
Play it yourself or pick a team you like and dedicate your mind, body and soul to watching them (lookin’ at you, Raptors).
I BLEED GREEN AND THE OTHER COLOR https://t.co/QCWErULWAi

24. Just spend 48 hours under a weighted blanket
Honestly, if you don’t have one, you’re missing out.
now hiring: someone to lift my weighted blanket onto my body
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 31, 2019
25. Do something healthy
Go for a walk. Do some exercise. Meditate. Meal prep. Drink water. Take care of those 256 unread emails.
well it is officially. After years of making fun of both, I now eat activia yogurt and drink kombucha. life comes at you fast
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 11, 2019
26. Play a video game

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 28, 2019
27. Listen to a podcast
Podcasts are fantastic because you can listen to them while walking, driving, doing chores, cooking, working out or just lying down with your eyes closed (under a weighted blanket).
LOVED this https://t.co/IEzmSOe63W
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 23, 2019
28. Waste as much time as possible on Reddit and reject the guilt
Chrissy went down a Reddit rabbit hole in May and you can too!
please I beg you stop sending me new subreddits u are giving drugs to an addict
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 26, 2019
29. Get a tattoo
ICYMI, the Teigen-Legends became a Tattoo Family this year so why not get some ink of your own like our favourite F-Bomb Mom?
buying this don’t talk to me pic.twitter.com/asGwAj6gxT
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) April 4, 2019
30. Finally get that pet you’ve been talking about
Only do this one if you’ve been seriously considering getting a pet—we are not endorsing impulsive pet adoption. That being said, if you’ve been wanting a hamster for months, maybe this is the weekend to get it. Just don’t lose it because, as we learned from Chrissy, finding the little guy again may turn into a days long ordeal.

31. Eat junk food. Just do it.
Just on vacation! Don’t worry I’ve seen everything on Twitter (I’d eat that bbq chicken stuffed tortilla pizza thing) https://t.co/HPnRRgTYdZ
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 25, 2019
32. Get a food dehydrator and take snacking to a new level
Think of the possibilities!

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 27, 2019
33. Have a night in by yourself
Sometimes mama (papa/sister/brother/roommate) needs some alone time so take advantage if you just so happen to get the house to yourself.
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 26, 2019
34. Hit up an arcade
Do people still go to arcades? Locate your nearest arcade and find out.
Ok we are officially at heathrow. If anyone is here in the next 16 hours we will be at the arcade
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 27, 2019
35. Spend hours making ridiculous photo edits
You can truly waste full days making outrageous edits to photos. Just be prepared for the consequences should you choose to post them.
meanwhile this blur app is gonna be a problem for me pic.twitter.com/mB32Y9CJYY
— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 7, 2019
36. Don’t go to the gym (or do, whatever)
Weekends are a common time to go to the gym. You can do that. Or you could not do that.

What a joy! What a dream!
