Google Chromecast Review + Favorites

May The Fourth Be With You!!

Sorry! I had too! I couldn’t resist the force…. sorry again.

Anyway now that I got that out of my system, I want to talk to you about my new favorite toy. In my marriage, I am the one who likes the tech stuff. The hubby appreciates technology but I am the one who really is into it. I like hooking things up. All that being said, I am going to tell you my unsponsored, completely honest opinion on the Google Chromecast. I am not being paid for anything that I am going to say. I just want to share my thoughts for anyone who is interested.

I personally love my Google Chromecast. I watch a lot of YouTube and Netflix and to just press a button on my phone or tablet is actually really ,really nice. While I do also have cable, most of my favorite shows are on Netflix at the moment and I pretty much watch it all the time. But it’s not good for any of us to be holding a device all the time. It is affordable as well.IMG_2629

So that is what it looks like. it does work on both of my TV’s which is great. The only glitch that I have experienced has been with my internet connection. Because my living space is in a basement, the internet isn’t always the best. other then internet frustrations I have no complaints! It was worth buying.

I figured that since I was going talk a little about my new toy. That I would share my other favorites with you from this past week. I love doing favorites posts. I have a few in the works that I can not wait to share! So let’s jump in!

1.) Movies

I am going to go back into my nerd mode for a second and say that I went to see The Avengers 2 Age of Ultron. Like with any Hollywood movie, there were some die hard comic fans that were not really big fans of the movie. I love me some super Heroes and I was not disappointed in this movie. I do plan to read the comic the movie is suppose to be based on. So that I can understand what the actual differences are. It has been a little while since I have actually read a comic. I am excited to see my favorite Superheroes coming to life on the big screen. I have my favs when it comes to DC and Marvel. Some of you may throw some rocks at me, but I do think it would be cool if they took The Avengers and The Justice League and made a huge team to fight some of our favorite bad guys. If this has already happened and I have seriously been under a rock this entire time please break it to me gently!

2.) TV Shows

I actually have a couple that I have been really into right now.

  • Once Upon A Time:

Oh my word! This show always has me at the edge of my seat, and they are always surprising me with something else. I have watched this since season 1 and I am still loving it.

  • Sons of Anarchy

Now you may be surprised that I am really into this show. Then again you probably shouldn’t be. My dad is a biker, I have cousins that are bikers. While they are not outlaws, there is something about Harley’s. leather, and the sound of motorcycles that I just love. I love riding on motorcycles, if you have never been on one, you don’t know the thrill in which I am speaking of. So I have been really into this show.

3.) My Erin Condren Planner

I am not going to talk to much about it, because I am going to do a separate post just about my planner. However, I’M IN LOVE, with my planner.

So that is a few of my favorites. I have a couple more favorite posts that will be separate. Let me know what your favorite TV show is?

  1. I want to try Once Upon a Time but have reaisted so far. Think I should finish one of the other series I’m slowly working through before I begin another!
    Dan loves SoA, I tried but I just couldn’t do it. I can cope with violence that is very far fetched from my reality, such as that found in Gladiator but ‘gangster’ style violence I just cannot cope with. It comes with being a Highly Sensitive Person, apparently.
    We use Netflix and don’t bother with a tv license as Netflix does for us too!


    1. I love Once Upon A Time! I have been a fan since day 1! They have done a fantastic job bringing favorite characters to life.
      I like watching the crime shows and war flicks. In at least when it comes to SoA and war films I am a lot like my father! 🙂
