How are we already in the month of March in the new year? Time needs to slow down. Sheesh.
What I Did
Basketball, basketball, basketball. Basketball overtook our lives this past month with League games then Playoff games and then disappointing ends to everyone’s seasons. Best game of the season was when my Brenna’s Lady Saxons took on my Kenna’s Lady Seahawks. They both played their hearts out and while Kenna’s team smashed on Brenna’s, Brenna played exceptionally well and not even her Coach can take that away from her. I was a proud Mom and Aunt that day.
What I Watched
Riverdale. I’m completely addicted to this show. I’m loving the darker version of the Archie comics and though this is a typical CW (beautiful people, loads of drama) show, I’m all about it. I’m loving Betty, Archie, Veronica, Jughead, everyone. Even Cheryl Blossom and her bitchy ass. Betty’s crazy ass Mom and just all of the drama? I’m so freaking here for it all. If you’re not watching this show, you should be.
Hawaii 5-0. I’m binge watching this show right now. I stopped watching it about mid-season 6 and have been meaning to catch up and then never did. I’m all caught up now and I’m still loving McGarrett’s crazy ass, Danny’s whiny ass and the rest of the team as well. I’m still low key shipping McGarrett and Kono and I don’t even care that Adam is the bomb, too. Haha. Such a good show. There’s a really good Polynesian representation on this show and I love that.
Suits. I’m watching this show faithfully but I’m not really sure why. This season is low key boring but I love Harvey, Mike, Donna and the rest of the gang so even though I’m not all that into this season, I’m still watching every single episode, every single week.
I also watched the following movies:
1. Patriots Day (2016) | Good
2. John Wick (2014) | Very Good
3. John Wick 2 (2017) | Very Good
4. Accidentally Engaged (2016) | Cheesy, but Cute
My favorite movies of the month go to the John Wick movies. Why in the world did I wait so long to watch those? Those movies were the bomb. Thanks to my brother Pete for bringing them to my attention.
What I Listened To
Bruno Mars. Yeah, I’m still listening to this album and yes, I’m still loving the hell out it. Say somethin’…haha.
Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur. Brenna brought this song to my attention. She loves this song and because she played it over and over last month, it grew on me until I loved it myself.
What I Read
1. Act Like It by Lucy Parker | 4 out of 5
2. Pretty Face by Lucy Parker | 4.25 out of 5

February was a slow reading month for me. I didn’t read much but I’m happy with the books that I read outside of the DNF. My favorite reads of the month go to Silver Silence, Pretty Face and Good Boy. All were fabulous reads.

What I Loved
One of the local malls in my town got renovated and it’s fancy as hell. The food court is more upscale, too. There’s no McDonalds, Taco Bell, not even a Chick Fil-A. The new and improved food court serves Pinks hot dogs, Chipotle, Panda Express, sushi, Korean food, Blaze Pizza and bunch of other stuff. My sisters, my friends, my kids and I have spent some serious time at this food court, having lunch and trying out the new spots. We love them all.
How was your February? Did you do anything fun? See or read anything good?
