My husband has recently become obsessed with candy crush. He’s a little late to the game, I know, but ohmygod he loves it. We have been spending countless hours every night catching up on this entire season of How I Met Your Mother, and he plays, like the entire time.

Also, we may have finished the entire season in about four nights. It’s hilarious. I will miss it. And admittedly, I cried at the season finale. I STILL can’t get it off my mind, and I’m on the side of not happy with it. I heard there is an alternate ending coming out..we’ll see.

So candy crush. I can’t stand the constant Facebook invites I get..I think Ive even deleted people who invite me alll the time! Like I really need one more thing to suck up my time.

I’ve been on a book reading bender. It’s pretty bad. My husband was wonderful and spent the entire day outside on Sunday with the kids, while I was a little under the weather, and I got to read an entire book, start to finish. It was ahhhmazing.

Basically I never want to stop reading now, like ever,  so I have to physically keep myself from beginning another book until I’m caught up on everything else. Although, if I’m being honest, I’m never, nor will I ever be, caught up on anything.

C’est la Vie!
