Hey guys and happy Thursday! I am just looking at the calendar and realizing that June is almost over. Whaaaatttt? I am really loving everything about summer so far and hate that time is flying by! I’m planning on savoring this last week of June.
Here are some things that have been going on with me lately!
My new TCL TV with a built-in Roku!
So when I lived by myself, I made a conscious decision not to put a TV in my room. I found that I got more sleep when I did not get caught up watching TV late at night. But once I moved into my new apartment with a roommate, I thought having a TV in my bedroom would be a nice thing to have.
It was kind of hard shopping for a TV when I’m not really a TV person because I didn’t want to spend a lot on something I wasn’t sure I’d use too much.
I ended up buying this TCL TV with a built-in Roku for several reason. The first is that it came up as one of the top TVs on my Amazon search and had really high ratings. I also liked that it was pretty inexpensive. Lastly, I have really been thinking about getting something like a Roku to stream things on my TV and this TV already has one built in… the less electronic devices I have to deal with, the better
It came with free trials of so many streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, etc) but I am also really looking forward to streaming workout videos on my TV. I used to use my laptop but sometimes that’s hard with exercises because of the small screen.
Sooooo remember last year when I cancelled cable because I never watched TV? Well, then Netflix entered my life with my new TV. Now I can’t stop watching Orange is the New Black!!
I have finished the first season so far. My favorite character is Taystee! I’m mad at myself because I read a spoiler for season 4.
to Florida Georgia Line’s new song called H.O.L.Y.
I haven’t really loved their more recent stuff so this song was a pleasant surprise to me. They are coming to Charlotte this summer and I would love to see them again live!
I honestly haven’t been reading too much. Occasionally I will pick up my new Sylvia Day book but I haven’t even read enough to get into it.
Finishing my night stand! I mentioned earlier this week that I got a new nightstand from the Ikea Tarva line. I just finished staining the top of it yesterday. Staining a plain piece of furniture actually takes a lot of time… I had to do 1 coat of wood conditioner, 2 coats of stain, and 3 coats of the top coat. Since I’ve mostly worked on it after work, I’ve had to do 1 coat at a time and let it dry overnight.
Now that I’m don’t with the top, I need to decide which color to paint the body. I was going to go with white but now I’m feeling like it might be fun to paint it a bright color instead! I was actually thinking about lavender… what do you think? (My room has lots of white and teal, FYI)
Stay tuned for a post next week!
Putting Off :
Cleaning/finishing my room.
You guys. I suck at unpacking. So bad. I hate it. We moved 5 weeks ago and I still have boxes sitting around. My roommate might hate me.
My room is pretty small and I had to get rid of a TON of stuff when I moved, and even then, there has been a ton of organizing and re-organizing that has had to go on here. I really don’t have a lot let to do but I can’t make myself finish.
So B went to London recently for work and because he is an amazing person, he brought back some chocolate, tea and cookies (sorry, “biscuits”) for me. Um, these cookies/biscuits were freaking amazing.
Micah and I love to have dessert time and we would each enjoy one. I loved them so much that I accidentally ate them all before I took a picture of them. Sorry!
Part of me wondered how many calories/fat were in each cookie because they basically tasted like pure butter with caramel.
A weekend getaway! I am heading out of town this weekend for a friend’s bachelorette party and to visit family. I am very much looking forward to it!
Living on the greenway.
So we didn’t realize this when we were apartment shopping, but our apartment sits right on the end of one of the greenways in Charlotte. The main part of it is 1.5 miles, so a 3-mile workout round trip. The middle of it also connects to Bank of America stadium which is pretty cool.
I LOVE being outside so, so much so this is an added bonus to my apartment!
Please let me know what’s been going on with you lately!

Have you watched season 4 of OITNB? Thoughts?
Would love your night stand opinions!!!
