Happy Saturday Cardinal Crew! We’ve made it through another quarantined week (if you haven’t watched our quarantine video yet, check it out below – it’s very entertaining).
So now that it’s the weekend, I’m sure you all are looking for activities to do. But in all actuality, how many times can you walk your dog around the neighborhood or do yard work? Like come on, let’s be honest here. Since it’s the weekend, you know what we say? TREAT. YO. SELF. (Continue reading to get that reference).
We aren’t talking about self care with face masks (not the medical/corona kind) and bubble baths – although you could really juggle those simultaneously as well if you’d like. No – we, our friends, are talking about…NETFLIX SHOW BINGING! Like come on, how often can you refer to yourself as a superhero/outstanding citizen by staying home and binge watching tv shows?
Sometimes it’s okay to sit on your couch and watch a netflix show for 8 hours straight! We are not here to judge; rather, we are here to help!
