The Friday Review, Vol. 3

Hey there! It’s time for another Friday Review! It’s been a while since I did a Friday review. A lot has happened in my life in the past month, so this may be a long one.


  • I got a new phone!!! I got the Samsung Galaxy S10+ (and got their Samsung Buds for free since we pre-ordered the day it opened!) I’m so excited to use the camera, have better battery life and storage space, and the buds!
  • It’s finally warming up here! The temperature was in the high 70’s this past week which has been AMAZING!
  • Spring Training has started and that means that baseball is back!


  • My dad passed away last month. I’ve been dealing with it, but it has definitely been…hard, to say the least. There are good days and bad days, but I’m getting by.

Weekend/Next Week Update

Next week is mine and my husband’s first wedding anniversary! We are so excited, I can’t believe that it’s finally here! I say that because we FINALLY get to eat the top layer of wedding cake that has been hogging up space in our tiny apartment freezer for the past year!

We’re also going to go to a couple of Dodgers spring training games for our anniversary. We love when spring training is in town when we’re not at work and we can actually go an enjoy the games. Psst, I’m going to be posting a guide to spring training in Arizona as well! I say when not at work because work is a nightmare with everyone trying to go back home after the games.
