Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a great week. We did. We really didn’t do much of anything which was a nice change of pace. Little man and I spent a few days enjoying the pool at our apartments. It’s nice going in the middle of the week because it is virtually empty and it was actually warm enough to enjoy the water.
At night, my husband and I have enjoyed our Netflix bingeing. We finished season 5 of Gilmore Girls and are halfway through season 6. I cannot wait for the revival 😀 We’ve also been watching Daredevil and only have a few episodes before we are all caught up. It’s ok, not my favorite superhero but my husband is enjoying it.
Story time 😉 We have been Amazon Prime members for about 7 years now (maybe longer) and I know they are all the time adding new features. One of my favorites is the Kindle First/Kindle Owner’s Lending Library. I kind of love getting access to new books early and being able to check out a book a month, plus free two-day shipping makes my shopping experience amazing. It wasn’t until last year that I started using the video service which is almost as good as Netflix. Between the two why have cable?! But this week I discovered Prime Music and I’m in love ❤️ I did not know that I could stream music like I use to with Pandora. I did not know that some albums I could listen to in its entirety before I could buy. AND I did not know that you can even download the music to listen to later. My friends I’ve rediscovered my love of music!!! And there’s a particular playlist/station I love because of all the nostalgic feels: All 90s 😀
Reading wise it was a good week. I’ve read 5 books this week, including a fun series binge. What have you read this week?
I started reading My Lady Jane last night and I’m loving it! I’m a sucker for historical fiction as it is but this has an element of sweet romance and comedy that had me snickering.

What are you reading this week?
This week is going to be a busy week so I’m glad last week was relaxing. We are only 19 days away from our move and while I’ve done a little packing here and there I need to buckle down and get to packing the bigger things now. We are all so excited 😀
On Friday my husband graduates from his residency and I couldn’t be prouder of him. This has been 13 years in the making and I’ve been with him for 12 of those years. He’s worked hard and it’s so surreal for him to be done. Proud of you sweetie ?
