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

I Want to Be a Superhero

I Want to Be a Superhero

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. “Wonder Woman!!!” I shouted at the top of my lungs and spun, imagining that I was turning into her so I could save the day. Naturally, my other friends wanted to turn into Wonder Woman, too. No one fought over it, we all spun in unison. It was a game played daily as a child in the 1970s. Although, at times we pretended to be Isis, Jamie from

Back to the Classics

Back to the Classics

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 fell in love with movies as a child. My first memory of going to the movies involved a drive-in, lots of popcorn, and a double feature (The Jungle Book then Orca) with my sister and I asleep by the start of the second movie. The next movie I saw was Star Wars. When I was a teenager, I discovered AMC, back when they ran classic movies. I spent

9 Movies Perfect for Halloween

9 Movies Perfect for 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.  One of my favorite holidays is Halloween. I’m not sure if that’s because it falls ten days after my birthday or all that comes with the holiday–the costumes, candy, jack-o-lanterns, decorations, and trick-or-treating. In fact, it might be my favorite holiday of all. (Although my sparsely decorated house this year gives off a different impression.) While this year has been a bit crazy and I’ve had little

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

10 Awesome Summer Movies

10 Awesome Summer Movies

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.  Mid-July. Hot. Humid.  Miserable. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate summer weather? I’m sure I have. Thank goodness for Willis Carrier, who invented air-conditioning in 1902. He was a brilliant man who helped make summer more bearable.  Granted, this does not mean I can get out of spending time outside. With three little girls, spending most of my summer outside is a requirement, what with

12 Movies of Christmas + Netflix Giveaway

Oh, how I love Christmas! From the music to the movies to the spirit of giving, I love it all!  Since having my girls, I find I enjoy it even more. It’s fun watching my girls’ eyes light up as they see all the lights and decorations. Or when Santa comes on TV, how they stop and stare, then my oldest talks nonstop about him and how she’s a very good girl (well, that’s questionable).  I adore Christmas so much that I watch all the cheesy Christmas movies found on ABC Family, Hallmark, and Lifetime. Watching the new ones bring

15 Great Back-to-School Movies

As summer tapers off to the beginning of autumn, you know what comes next–the first day school. Scrolling through my Facebook feed lets me know that many children have already returned to their classrooms to learn. Friends and family have taken their daughters and sons off to college to start their adventures away from home.  At my house, we sit and wait. In two weeks, our four-year-old’s preschool year will begin. This year she will be attending a new preschool in our small town, instead of driving 20 minutes to our parish school. We decided on the change for a

“Mommy, We Need to Watch Netflix”

My little girls love television. It’s a fact I’ve grappled with and decided to let go of the guilt. Well, most of the time. I do try to limit the amount I watch, but it doesn’t stop their love for the medium.  Each morning I will leave the T.V. on for 2-3 hours with programs that they enjoy. We usually have a “set” routine, starting with PBS favorites like Curious George and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, then we move over to Disney Jr. to watch Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, and my youngest’s favorite, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  My girls don’t usually sit still to watch their programs. They

12 Wonderful Romantic Movies

For years, I dreaded Valentine’s Day. I wanted to hate it. After all, I was single and alone. no one sent me flowers, bought me chocolates, or mailed me a card. I would recall the last time I had a Valentine date and cringe that at the fact that no one wanted to be my Valentine since my senior year of high school.  Despite feeling lonely on this holiday for over 18 years, I held hope that it would be more someday. Someday happened after I met my husband, Chris. (Granted, our first Valentine’s Day together was thwarted by my
