TV Thursday

About a month ago, Adam and I cut cable. No DVR, no premium channels, just lightning speed internet. We already had Netflix as well as Amazon Prime, and I was subscribing to Hulu Plus for the capabilities to watch on my phone and TV. After crunching some numbers, it became clear to us that it was so much more affordable (and soooo much easier) to cut the cord already.

So what have I been watching? I've been keeping up with Warehouse 13 thanks to iTunes Season Pass, but the current binge watching is...

I stopped watching PLL back during the Halloween flashback episode of Season 2. I just had so many shows that I was watching that it just fell off my radar. Well with Summer Season officially kicking off (aka basically nothing is on), it's the perfect time to play some catchup! And with Season 4 starting just a few days ago, it's definitely time for some blitzing to be on top of everything. This show is seriously addicting... and ridiculous. High school was not like this at all for me. Although to be fair, I wasn't what you'd call part of the popular crowd.

I'm going to try to make this something of a weekly posting - updates of what I'm watching, thoughts etc. I follow so many shows that this is the easiest way to keep a good pulse check on everything.

If you have a suggestion of what to watch next, I'm all ears!

trying to play catchup

It feels like we've been moving nonstop since the wedding. First Hawaii, then getting settled and sorted, and then we had to go to Salt Lake the first weekend in June only to come back and test MagicBands the following weekend.

Going back to Salt Lake was rough to say the least. It was last minute for my Great Aunt Beverly's funeral. The flight getting there was straight up ridiculous. We flew the hour from Orlando to Charlotte, then started the 4 hour flight from Charlotte to Salt Lake. Well en route, the toilets  stopped working, meaning we had an emergency landing in Chicago. We landed 9:55pm CT and didn't leave until 2am CT... at least we were able to go into the terminal and walk around some... Considering we were supposed to land at 10:40pm MT, just getting to Salt Lake was a blessing, even if it was at 4am. We were able to spend some much needed quality time with my family, and we even were able to get some time in seeing some friends.

Before we knew it, it was back to the grindstone at work where I've gotten more responsibility. Yay exciting! However it also means that Laura the Worrywart comes out more often. I've been stressing out over the little things again, which is just another reason why I NEED to get back to writing.

Last weekend we got to test out MagicBands, which is going to be the next big thing! And it was a blast!! We had FastPasses set up for Animal Kingdom, and we were able to change them up on the fly using the app. It was fantastic. I'm so excited to see how this new technology rolls out to the general public.

And now this weekend, we finally get a break! I'm trying to hunker down and write and pick the perfect picture for thank you cards for the wedding (only 2 months later!) as well as go through all 2000 of those pictures. So I swear Wedding and Honeymoon pictures are coming. But fair warning, it probably will be in July after our Disneyland Trip!

Thanks for sticking with me, folks!
