Not Just a Mom-- Binge Watching TV Shows

Image
This month's Not Just a Mom group is discussing our favorite TV shows to binge.  I really hope to get some great ideas from this link up as I am struggling to find great shows to watch this month!  I hope you'll head over and check out my co-hosts posts too and if you wrote up one of your own please link it up with us below.  I used to have a series I ran every few months listing the shows I was enjoying so I'm going to try and not repeat any of those lists (you can read them here, here, and here if you'd like.. I'm pretty sure I have a few more posts about shows too and you can always click on the shows link at the end of this post just before the comments).  Which means I'm focusing more on shows I've been watching in the past couple of years.  Many of the shows I really enjoyed are actually old shows that I never watched when it seemed like everyone else was!

A Sentence a Day in July; 2022

 We had such a fabulous time in July soaking up all sorts of family time, summer fun, and warm (hot!) summer days!  While I'm still tracking my steps, I am still not 100% healed with my foot and so I tried not to beat myself up over missing my 10,000 steps most days.  1. After grocery shopping early in the morning I spent a good portion of my morning prepping food for our family party the next day: fruit salad & salad while Alec made red/white/blue cheesecake. I finished up two books in the afternoon.  4,328 steps.  I made a peach caprese salad for dinner and marinated some pork tenderloin for dinner So delicious and it was a huge favorite at the cookout! 2.  We had our family's 4th of July party at the lake; it ended up being a really nice day despite the threat of thunderstorms.  6,976 steps It was an unexpectedly HOT and muggy day so I swapped out my red/white and blue for this cool tank & shorts We were missing almost ALL of the "big" cousins this year (al
