binge watching updating ourselves on some much needed episodes of “How To Get Away Murder“. Been trying to get to the bottom of who killed Wes. If you haven’t started watching it yet, what are you waiting for? This is some of Viola Davis’ best stuff and she’s pretty darn awesome in everything she plays in already. Read More
As much as we want to go to New Orleans this year for Mardi Gras, we have to face the music. We cannot make it happen. We have lots of work to do around the house and so much to save up for in order to have an awesome backpacking trip in Europe, come April. Next year, we vow to try harder. Forget trying, we will make it happen. Read More
