Friday Five Currently | Week 10

TGIF y'all!  Thanks to our 3-day Labor Day  weekend, this week flew by.  Speaking of Labor Day, I had the most chill Labor Day ever.  I slept in and then finished up one the books I was reading.  The kids got to take a break from homeschooling.  So they enjoyed having the chance to play on their tablets and catch up on Netflix shows.  Let me know down in the comments what you did for Labor Day.

Currently . . .

Watching |  The kids recently discovered some old Disney shows from my childhood.  That's been one of the good things about getting rid of cable for YouTube TV. They have an extensive backlist of old shows.  Anyways, it's been fun taking  walk down memory lane and being able to share something from my childhood with them.

Surprisingly, they love those shows more than a lot of the current shows currently on Disney.  Among their favorites are Proud Family, Shake It Up, and Hannah Montana.  I wish they had the Famous Jett Jackson on there.  (RIP to Lee Thompson Young)  I think that was the first Disney original show where the main character was Black, but don't quote me on this.

Wishing | BookNet Fest is going down this weekend and I'm bummed that I'm missing it for the second year in a row.  Last year, I found out about it too late.  This year none of my family members could accompany me to watch the kids while I went to the panels because I'm not sure if this event is exactly kid-friendly.

Also, thanks to some changes and upcoming changes, my bank account was like "It's a no-go boo."  I really have to watch where my coins are going these days and paying for gas, fast food, and a hotel room is something I couldn't afford to swing this month.  I'm having a good time seeing other people tweet and Instagram about it though and am looking forward to the wrap-up videos that are sure to hit YouTube next week.

I am setting aside money though so that I can attend next year.  Third time is the charm they say.

Binging |  Season 2 of Iron Fist is here and I still haven't finished all of Season 1.  My sister texted me to see if I wanted to buddy watch it Season 2 with her.  So now I'm trying to binge these last few episodes.  I don't know why it was so hard to get into Iron Fist the first time I watched it.

Hopefully this season starts off good and I won't lose interest.  I'm also stoked about buddy watching it with my sister because she totally gets my nerdiness and why things like buddy watching and buddy reading are cool to me.  Everyone needs a baby sister as cool as mine.

Looking |  I can't remember if I mentioned on here or not, but I've been looking at potential new cars.  I need something that is way more gas efficient than what I have now.  And by new I mean slightly used unless I can find a completely new car within the budget I have in my head.

I have kind of fallen in love with this one car, but I'm keeping an open mind.

Wanting |  I'm on a journey to growing my hair out to waist length.  I'm almost there.  The only issue is that maintaining long natural hair is tedious.  The urge to just take the scissors to it and cut it to a more manageable length is real.  So, I'm wanting to find a style that will give me a break from my weekly wash days, but still allow me to keep growing my hair out.

I've been thinking about getting some braids or mini twists for Fall.

Have a great weekend y'all.  I'm hoping to finish up a book or two from my September TBR.

What have you been binging lately?
