Let’s Look-Podcasts & Shows We Binge

Hey There, Friends!

I’m BACK!! Well, kind of! We have a few days left on our beach vacation but I’m back in blog world today and Friday this week. This year our summer vacation was a bit of an experiment. Typically when we visit the beach, we’re there for a week and feel the urge to spend as much time as humanly possible at the beach. If the sun is shining, we’re there. However, our summer vacation is one of the few times during the year our entire family gets to relax and have a slower-paced schedule so we wanted to truly feel that way. {RELAXED} Long story short, we decided to see if spending two weeks at the beach would help us relax a bit more and not feel like we HAVE to get outside as soon as the sun is up. I have a few more days of this vaca to decide my true thoughts but promise to tell you my findings!

In the mean time I’m here with Shay for another episode of Let’s Look! It’s the monthly link-up where we get together and take a peek at something in our lives.

In January we shared our closets. Spoiler alert, my girl, Lauren, and I are still trying to find a day for her to come and help me. Promise to show you pics when she’s finished though!

In February, we discussed the little things we do every day. From coffee to walking to chatting with girlfriends, I shared all the things I sneak in my days to make them a little extra special

In March, we shared a look at our grocery carts. I find myself enjoying other’s grocery store hauls in search of some new food ideas. Hope it helped you too!

In April, we took a peek at our quiet times and what that looks like/even means!

In May, we took a look at our summer closet staples.

Last month we took a peek at our summer schedules.

Today, we’re talking about one of my FAVORITE things…PODCASTS {AND SHOWS WE WATCH}!

I’m certain I arrived WAY late to the podcast party, but friends, I’ve arrived and I’m so happy to be here! I don’t know about you but after turning forty my body just started working a bit differently. I’ve learned some things about this mid-life body and one is how important my daily steps are. {I seriously didn’t give this a THOUGHT for the first forty years of my life.}. However, now I’m learning these steps are even more important than a cardio session. My VERY FAVORITE way to get my daily number of steps is by popping in a podcast and getting my walk on. Here are a few of the podcasts I LOVE listening to…

The Lazy Genius Podcast with Kendra Adachi. Her tag line is being a genius about the things that matter and lazy about the things that don’t. Each week she shares an episode that truly helps me with running the house. This particular week I listened as I walked around the adorable town of Rosemary Beach while Kendra shared tons of summer meal ideas from listeners. And I honestly am pumped to get back home and into the kitchen to try some of those ideas out! Every week I learn something!

The Big Boo Podcast with Melanie Shankle & Sophie Hudson is another favorite. It’s really like two friends chatting weekly about what they’ve been doing lately, what they’ve been watching lately, etc. It feels like I’m right there grabbing coffee with them. Some weeks they’re laughing and other weeks crying but it’s always a good listen!

10 Things to Tell you with Laura Tremaine is a podcast all about sharing your stuff. Laura shares her story each week, invites guests to join her, and inspires listeners to think through their own stories.

Those are the three podcasts I get excited about each week when a new podcast episode is released! If you haven’t listened to those before, give them a try!

Back in 2019, our Let’s Look calendar had this exact subject…show we binge! I shared my favorites from back then in this blog post!

I haven’t really been watching many shows this summer BUT I’m excited to watch…

America’s Sweethearts, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders


And Big Brother! Who knew Big Brother is returning in one week?!

Okay, friends! Before you leave, I could shop the Nordstrom Sale last night at midnight so I made a quick post of what I ordered. I’ll share the specific details as soon as they arrive! You can see that post of my NSale faves!

Hope to see you next month for a look at what’s in our pantry…
