Netflix' Birthdays On-Demand

Netflix Launches Birthdays On-Demand #AD

Birthdays On-Demand.  What a concept!  My son is turning 16 tomorrow.  I haven’t really shared too much about my son since he left his baseball days behind, but the truth is, I could talk about him all.day.long if I could.  He always makes jokes about how no one cares about him because he’s the “middle” child.   He will send me memes of how life is as a middle child.   Now it’s just become … Continue Reading...

The Art of Persuasion

The Art of Netflix Persuasion

I love sharing new things with my friends and family.  Ever since I could remember, I have always been like that.  I like testing out new things and sharing what my experience has been with that particular brand or product.  (Hence this blog!) When it comes to what I watch, that’s no different.  Sometimes I have to put more effort into how important watching a particular show is.  However, usually, the art of persuasion wins … Continue Reading...

Sneaking is the new bingeing #MomSneak

Sneaking isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  It can actually be very healthy!  Moms, you know you’re busy and stressed.  The days start running together and sometimes can even be overwhelming.  We, as moms, need our “me time”.  The problem comes when you don’t know when to get that “me time” in.  We have to work it into our day somehow.  That is where the sneaking comes into play.  Whether you hide away in your bathroom … Continue Reading...

Lyss sings Billie Holiday's If You Were Mine

If You Were Mine – Billie Holiday (COVER) by LYSS

If you were mine.  Well, technically, she is mine.  My oldest daughter, Lyss, has a natural gift.  She has many actually, however, this particular gift is one that I wish I could say she got from me, but if you really knew me, you’d know I couldn’t carry a tune to seriously, save my life.  She is an amazing singer and one day I just happen to be stalking her Twitter account (yes, I stalk my … Continue Reading...

Netflix Streaming Time is Literally Anytime

Have you been caught Netflix streaming?  I started binge watching Netflix shows probably about 4 years ago.  I remember binge watching my very first show, Scandal.  As excited as I was, I think I watched it in 3 days.  That was immediately followed by The Gilmore Girls.  Soon, I discovered that I can watch Netflix anytime of the day or night….and be ok with that.  I no longer had to adhere to the limitations that … Continue Reading...

It’s all about the girls! #StreamTeam

International Women’s Day is highly recognized around the world, as it should be.  If you have a girl, you know that they are easily influenced by gender stereotypes and that role models from the entertainment that they choose can have a long lasting effect on them.  Girls as young as 6 are influenced by what they watch and what they hear.  This past election certainly sparked just how important female role models are seen and heard.  Girls … Continue Reading...

I’m a confessed Netflix cheater! #Streamteam

Are you a Netflix cheater?  Do you say you will wait to watch a specific show on Netflix with your partner or child?  Do you start the series together and make a pact that you won’t watch it without each other.  You know that temptation is always there, right?  Then suddenly, before you know it, you’ve uncontrollably binged the entire series without waiting?  That makes you a Netflix cheater!  After taking a look at these … Continue Reading...

The Anti Fairy Tale on Netflix Streamteam

The “Anti-Fairy Tale” – Netflix #Streamteam

By referencing the anti-fairy tale, I don’t mean that I am against those happy, little girl fairy-tale endings.  I am all for those and I wish real life was a fairy tale, (now more than ever) but that’s not how the world works.  What I am referring to is the little kid shows that my children slowly but surely have gotten away from watching.  My kids are no longer interested in Princess movies and have … Continue Reading...

School is Out; Adventure’s On Netflix {#StreamTeam}

Guess what?  For most kids, school is out for winter break.  Some parents are happy, some are sad.  I tend to lean towards the “some parents are happy” spot on the scale only because I work in a school.  So, being with 500 a day as opposed to being with 3 who are rarely seen, winter break is like heaven to me.  For those that are on the sad side of the scale, you probably … Continue Reading...

Netflix StreamTeam which family dynamic do you most relate to?

Family Dynamics and Traditions: #StreamTeam

When it comes to family dynamics and traditions it makes me laugh because we don’t have very many traditions as a family because we are far from traditional.  I recently asked my children if they warn their friends or if they have a descriptive word that best suits our family and if so, what is it?  I had already figured out what each of the kids would say, but I wanted to hear it from them … Continue Reading...

Stream & Scream with Netflix this Halloween

Stream and Scream with Netflix this Halloween!

As the fall weather rolls in, my family bundles up on the couches with our blankets and watch the roaring fire while we stream Netflix.  As a family, we have family movie nights at least once a week. And, with Halloween right around the corner, the weather getting cooler, I can safely assume we will be kicking back watching Netflix this weekend in preparation for the spooky holiday.  Netflix is sharing some of their popular … Continue Reading...

A teenage girls lesson about finances

Choosing Your Vagina Over Finances = Priorities

Sometimes your vagina trumps your finances and as a newly child turned adult, my oldest daughter is learning the most valuable lesson about priorities.

I have what I feel is a very open and sometimes brutally honest relationship with my children. That is something that I take extreme pride in as a parent.  My oldest daughter just turned 18 a couple months ago officially marking her as an “adult”. Whether she is ready for what the … Continue Reading...

However, with my youngest daughter, Gianna, I received a lesson for the books. She taught me one of the biggest lessons I’ve had as a mother thus far.  

As a parent, it’s my job to teach my kids right from wrong, to respect others and … Continue Reading...

Bebé PODPants – The Next BIG Thing in #Infant #Apparel Since the One-Piece Body Suit!

A New Baby Must-Have!

Now I may be a bit biased with this particular product because I have worked with this company for a while now. The reason I love this product so much is actually two-fold. I love the person behind the product because she is a true entrepreneur, a true fighter and is one that never gives up. I love her spirit. You can read more about Tiffany here.
