    Hamilton Viewing

    I have been wanting to see Hamilton on Broadway for years. Once the majority of the original cast, including Lin Manuel Miranda were no longer in the show though, my desire wasn’t as great. But for a long time tickets were pretty impossible to get and when you could get them they were so expensive! I’m talking hundreds of dollars for an okay seat. So when it was announced that Disney+ was going to be airing a recording of the show from a few years ago I was so excited! The musical did not disappoint and I’m in awe of how all of the music, lyrics, dialogue could come from…

    Songs on Repeat

    I’m one of those people that when I find a song or songs I like I can’t stop listening to them. I can literally listen to the same song on repeat for an hour car ride. Back when I was in high school, my friend and I would call these songs on repeat our “summer jams”. The current song on repeat for me is “Be Kind” by Marshmello and Halsey. It’s so good. I love the melody and the lyrics. I thought I would round up some songs (including “Be Kind”) that I’ve been listening to a lot lately. Some are old, some are newer. They’re just what I’ve been…

    June 2020 Favorites

    Can you believe it’s already the end of June? This has been the weirdest year ever. We’re more than halfway through 2020 and we’ve been in lockdown or in some sort of quarantine for almost 4 of those months. I have a few favorites from this month to share. It’s actually a pretty short list. First, I’ve mentioned this before and if you follow my Instagram Stories, then you know I’ve been trying to go for daily walks whenever the weather is good. When I was working from home during the last 3 months of school, I knew I had to get out for walks. It was good to get…

    May 2020 Favorites

    Well if 2020 hasn’t already been bad enough, May has just been another dumpster fire! Things are absolutely crazy right now. We’re still getting through the pandemic and the country is literally and figuratively on fire. I hope you are all staying safe through all of these hard times. For lighter new, I have a round-up of things I loved in May. First, did you watch the first season of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist? I loved the show and I’m waiting to hear if it’s picked up for a 2nd season on NBC. I hope so! During the season finale, the cast sang “American Pie” and I was obsessed with their rendition…

    Quarantine Binging #2

    A few weeks ago I shared the tv shows I’d been binge watching during quarantine. Well, I’m already back with more shows (and 1 movie) that I’ve finished since then. So let’s get to it! The Last Kingdom I’ve written about this Netflix show in year’s past and season 4 recently dropped. I watched the season over the course of a week or so. I didn’t want to rush through it and I was pretty busy at the time with work so I was only watching 1-2 episodes a night. I love this show and if you’re unfamiliar, it follows main character Uhtred in England in the like 800-900s. He…

    April 2020 Favorites

    Another month over, can you believe it? I can’t believe we’ve been in quarantine for about 6 weeks already. Sometimes it feels like the time has gone by really fast and other times it feels like forever. It is hard to believe that the whole month of April has gone by though. For this month’s favorites, I have a lot of tv related things since I’m watching a lot more these days. First, I was obsessed with the Food Network Tournament of Champions. It was so fun to watch! It’s like March Madness but with famous chefs.   Next, I have been watching Hawaii Five-O for the past 10 years and early…

    Queen T-Shirt

    When I was placing a Walmart order a few weeks ago for coffee and things, I came across this fun Queen tee. Freddie Mercury’s face on the Queen playing card! The tee comes in white and black and I opted for the white. The graphic is not what I expected – it’s not printed on, it’s like it’s ironed on so the graphic feels plastic-y. But the tee is only $13, so for that price I don’t mind too much. I thought to go along with this tee I would list 5 of my favorite Queen songs. Bohemian Rhapsody is on the list of course. 2 of my friends and…

    What I’ve Been Binge Watching

    So with the extra time at home I’ve gotten to watch a lot of tv and catch up on things I didn’t have time for before. I’m sure a lot of you are in the same boat as me. I thought I would share what I’ve been binge watching the past two weeks. I’m just sharing 4 today. The first two are shows I’ve watched for years, but fell behind on in the past 1-2 years so I’m catching up. Blue Bloods – I’ve been watching this show on CBS since it started like 9 or 10 years ago but I fell behind last season and never caught up. So…

    February 2020 Favorites

    I saw a meme somewhere yesterday that said something like January was 48 years long and February was 2 seconds and I think it’s so true! January felt like it dragged on and on and I always think the months go by in the blink of an eye so January was strange for sure. I can’t believe February is about to be over and it normally would be except for the fact that it’s a leap year! So let’s get in to my February favorites! First up, my Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw. I have been talking about this for a month. It’s my first Barefoot Dreams piece and I’m in love. I…

    Leap Year

    Happy Leap Day! When I thought about Leap Day and Leap Year, it made me think of the Amy Adams and Matthew Goode movie Leap Year. I recently saw it on a list of bad movies and I remember thinking “hey I like that movie!” So I rewatched it the other night. And it’s actually not that great! It’s not terrible, but definitely not the best rom-com out there. Amy Adams is kind of annoying in the movie, but it got me thinking about other things I love Matthew Goode in. Chasing Liberty Similar to Leap Year in that Matthew Goode is trying to help the female protagonist get to her destination…
