What I Watched:

  • Charmed – I am almost done with my marathon on Charmed. I took a little break from the series and now I’m about halfway down through the 7th season and then it’ll just be season 8. I think I might post my thoughts on my rewatch.
  • The Perfect Date – This one was a group watch in a facebook group I’m in. I enjoyed it. I thought the girl reminded me of Lydia from Bettlejuice.
  • Homecoming – My co-worker told me this one was really good so I started watching and it was pretty good.
  • Someone Great – I watched this mainly for a Selena scene because you know how much I love Selena. And it was really good.
  • Mule – The husband wanted to watch this one and it was really good.
  • Bumblebee – Little 1 wanted to watch this one and I really enjoyed it.

What I Listened To:


I started the Read Me Romance podcast. I’ve only listened to one book but I plan to listen and do mini reviews of the podcasts.

Behind The Scenes of As Told By Tina

  • April is the month that I turned 28! 28 didn’t start out all that great. For one, my car gave out the day before my birthday. My family made me a little dinner and the Littles smashed cake in my face.
  • My car has started to break up with me. The starter gave out the day before my birthday, then I got a ticket and then someone crashed me.
  • I finally cut my hair! I took off a couple inches and I decided to get bangs.
  • Little 1 had a field trip to the Triple A team in town. He didn’t want me to go because I’m not cool enough.
  • Little 2 had a field trip to the zoo. She was exhausted afterwards and fell asleep mid sentence.
  • For Easter, we bought the kids bikes because someone broke into my yard and stole their old bikes. Little 1 was having trouble because his bike no longer has training wheels. Now that the weather is nicer, I do want to get myself a bike so we can all go bike riding.
  • Little 1 scored his first run this month. He was really excited. His team is improving with every game. The season is almost over so we’ll be headed back to football.
  • I found this little food truck near my grandma’s that sell Mexican corn. And it was the best $5 I ever spent. The hot cheetos and takis one is THE BEST.
  • We also enjoyed the first game of the baseball season with our local team El Paso Chihuahuas. It was a lot of fun. I fell in love with their fries that have cheese, hot cheetos, jalapeños so I’m probably going to make some for myself soon.
