So over it and ready for warmer weather. I never thought I would be excited for a 40 degree forecast - seriously, I am running in shorts and a tshirt on the weekend, rain you better stay the buggery away.
Meanwhile, my heart skipped a beat when I saw the forecast said 61 for Tuesday. It's coming, I can feel it.. Spring. But until then... favourites!
Y'all I am so obsessed with this I literally can't even. If I'm saying y'all you know it's real. I might have mentioned that KC and I don't have cable - never have, not worth the money. He had it when he lived with his mom, I never had it growing up and we survive just fine. That being said, if you invite me over to your house for a HGTV marathon, I would say yes in a heartbeat. KC has to watch soccer and football games on his computer or go to a friends house. So, we don't want to pay for cable but we wouldn't say no if it were free.
Well. It's not free, but it's damn near. $20 a month and you get like 20 channels, I can't tell you what they are because I only care about 1 - HGTV (KC only cares about ESPN - this should be interesting come football season). Yep. aka the reason I have done nothing the last few days because all I have been doing is watching alllll them shows.
Ok, first off - we signed up for a free trial to see if it was our jam. Bummed to find out we need a roku or amazon fire whatsit. I don't like watching live TV on my computer, and while we can hook the 'puter up to the telly, then what am I supposed to blog on? Then I discovered they were running a deal where you get $50 off the fancy amazon thing, or a free amazon stick thing (real technical terms here y'all). So, I cancelled our free trial that I had set up with one email address, and signed up using this link with a different email address- now you do have to sign up and pay for 3 months up front with either of these deals, so I recommend doing a normal 7 day trial with another email address to figure out if it's right for you. It might not be, but I thought I would share for my other HGTV lovahs out there.
Oh, and you can access netflix and all the other doodads with the fire stick thingy.
You can add extras, like sports or news or kids but we didn't.
Biggest awesome thing I have discovered: I CAN REWIND. Ok, so I get home and some lameo show is on. I can rewind hours or days back and watch whatever I want. Boom. The stick isn't the best to rewind and fast forward through commercials and the like, so I just let it play through and instagram for like a minute till the show comes back on. It is without a doubt my favourite feature.
Biggest flaw I have found so far: doesn't have the option for subtitles like Netflix. Have a feeling this would not annoy most people, but y'all I love my subtitles. Oh, and you also can't have it running on multiple devices at once, which is not a big deal for us, but it might be for you.
We love it so much we are most likely going to get rid of netflix because we really don't use it that much. It's ok, it's handy, but eh. We kept it cause it's like $10 a month, but this is $20, and both makes - you guessed it, $30, and I like $20 better than $30 so Bye Felicia-Netflix.
I hope I don't have to say this, but totes not sponsered. I wish. I would shout it from the rooftops even more so than I am doing right now. It's not even an affiliate link, nada, zilch, noperaino. Just my love for HGTV, or as I like to call it, hug TV.
I started Joey's book Yeah, maybe last night and I seriously couldn't put it down. I didn't even watch HGTV which is a big deal because see above. It's still on sale for $1.99 so go get you some good bookage.
About a year late, but I'm listening to Serial whilst running. I don't like podcasts, I don't like murder (you know what I mean), I didn't think this would be my jam. But I'm addicted, I want to run more just so I can keep listening.
Yep, all y'all. For your sweet words and comments on Tuesday's post, I just feel super loved and normal and like a new person. Baby steps, being nicer to myself, being honest with what I actually want.. come at me
This weekend is hopefully gonna be low key - running, reading, hgtv-ing and sleeping. Sounds fine to me. Any plans?
