What to Watch This Halloween

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own. I love watching paranormal movies and television shows all year round. But come Halloween, they seem even better and more creepy, scary, or interesting! Luckily, I have a lot of options because I have Netflix.  Why is Netflix a big deal? Well, they have a ton of great TV shows but they are also adding to their movie options. One of the best shows to come out

A Star Wars Love Affair

A Star Wars Love Affair

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own. “Star Wars or Star Trek?” I saw the question and knew how to answer without hesitation. For geeks like me, I don’t even have to think about my answer (Star Wars, FYI). But I know there are others who look at this question with confusion, thinking to themselves, “Who cares?” Whatever. They don’t know what they are missing.  At the tender age of five, I sat in the back

Lessons I Learned From Watching “Friends”

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own. When I started graduate school many years ago, I didn’t know anyone at the school I chose to attend in small town Georgia. While I quickly met other students in my program, I did not have the social life or friendships I once had at college. Then, one day, I received a message from a random undergraduate. Tony contacted me because he was also from the St.

Lost in Some Good Books

Disclaimer: There are some Amazon Affiliate links throughout this post. If you click the link and buy a book, I would get a small commission. Just enough for me to indulge in my favorite guilty pleasure, Taco Bell. This post was not influenced by my craving for Taco Bell at all. All opinions are my own, as always. Whenever I enter the library or book store by myself, I have to go in with a plan, otherwise I will get lost in there, or just lose time. And, sometimes, it’s fun to go explore the shelves with no plan in

Firsts

Firsts

When it comes to Facebook, I have to admit that I love surveys and quizzes. From Buzzfeed quizzes to interviewing your kids then posting their answers, I love them all. This morning, one Facebook friend, Zoom, posted a list of “firsts.” I looked through his answers and the list. Without questioning it, I copied the post and got ready to share my answers. Then, it occurred to me. Why not share my answers via a blog post? After all, it has been a while since I blogged anything.  So, without further ado, my firsts: FIRST prom date Larry. We went

Zootopia, Star Wars, and Captain America. Oh, My! Disney Comes to Netflix

Zootopia, Star Wars, and Captain America. Oh, My! Disney Comes to Netflix

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own.  September 20th is a magical day. Since early spring, I’ve patiently waited. And waited. And waited.  What have I been waiting for? Simple. Disney on Netflix! In May, Netflix announced a huge deal they made with Disney and Disney’s subsidiaries (Lucasfilm, Pixar, and Marvel). Starting in September, Netflix would hold exclusive U.S. rights to all Disney movies (including the subsidiary companies). This news thrilled me! While I enjoy streaming TV

Battle Scars

Battle Scars

Twenty years ago today, I stood in frustration, tears, and pain on a lanai as I looked at one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Ahead of me, I could see that the sun was waking up, the day about to begin. Diamond Head stood strong in the distance. Just in front of me was a beautiful beach with the waves hitting the shore. Below me, hotel staff busied themselves with putting out chairs in preparation for some event later that morning.  It was around 7:30 in the morning when I decided to take off my glasses and place

My Love Affair with Stand-Up Comedy

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own.  Years ago, as a teenager at a time when my parents briefly had cable, I found myself bored and clicking through the channels looking for something to watch after everyone else had gone to bed. I stumbled on a program with a woman telling jokes to an audience. As I watched, I became captivated and amused. Soon, I was laughing out loud, and I had a woman

Confessions of a Potty Training Failure (& Giveaway)

Confessions of a Potty Training Failure (& Giveaway)

Disclosure: I am doing this review in exchange for a one-year subscription of the KidloLand Nursery Rhymes App. I love being honest about all my reviews so all opinions really are my own! I’m a failure. I can put up beautiful pictures of my kids on Facebook and show happy moments, but it hides the truth. I suck! Well, more specifically, I suck at potty training my children. It all started when I tried to potty train my oldest, Ginny. She was two and therefore ready to start learning how to use the potty, or so I thought. Ginny did

15 Fantastically Funny Facebook Posts: 8th Edition

It’s hard for me to believe that it is the end of July. I swear it still feels like June. The calendar, though, makes it clear that the end of summer break is near. Now I find myself getting my oldest ready to start Kindergarten (how can that be??) while trying to convince my middle daughter to potty train (she’s very stubborn) so she can start preschool in a couple of weeks.  I’m glad that I can escape the madness and laugh at funny Facebook posts. Laughter is the best medicine after all. Besides, sometimes it’s nice to know I’m
