In addition to finally taking a few days off from work this past weekend, I also decided to take a break from publishing Sunday’s blog post to simply just relax.

Lazy Sundays are spent at home on the couch in my pajamas with food and television. It’s not something that I get to do too often, so when I do, it’s heavenly. I’ve been able to catch up on some really great Netflix shows and movies during Lazy Sundays, so I thought it would be a cool idea to let you know exactly what I’ve been watching just in case you too are looking for something new to get into!
