stranger things on Netflix

I admit, I didn’t see any pre-promotion for Stranger Things season 1 on Netflix at. Nothing on Twitter, nothing on Facebook. And then all of a sudden, EVERYONE was talking about it.

educational shows on netflix

Take a deep breath y’all, summer is almost over. Truth be told, there are some moments that I don’t want summer vacation to end but they’re quickly overshadowed by the front door opening and slamming shut roughly 527 times when the kids are supposed to be playing outside.

52 weeks of being 39

  Week 3 of my #52of39 adventures takes me back, waaaaaay back to when I was 12, roller skating every weekend possible. I had forgotten how much I loved being on roller skates, the music, the smell of the wooden floor and the old carpets mixed with hot dogs and popcorn. Oh the good ol days.   Check out the … Continue reading

52 weeks of being 39

  Week 2 in my #52of39 adventures brought me to a yoga studio for the first time in my life. Yes, I’ve done yoga but I’ve never been in a studio, with people, and breathing, and more people.
