Stranger Things 2

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s #StreamTeam, I take my role of sharing potentially autumn-saving media with you extremely seriously. Read to the end of this post for a pretty rare, pretty awesome Netflix subscription giveaway! Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and organizational tendencies are entirely my own. *** Fall can be an incredibly fast-paced, ridiculously intense month if you’re not too careful. I am generally careful. Alongside my supply of extra hoodies (because I swear my kids leave them {Read More}

“Because I said so.” (And so did the #StreamTeam.)

Chef's Table Flowchart

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I get to watch a ridiculously wonderful amount of programming and call it RESEARCH. (Oh, and share it with you.) Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and last words are entirely my own. *** This may come as no humongous surprise, but I enjoy arguing. Oh, not when someone’s being aggressive in traffic or if I think someone’s, like, thinking mean thoughts about me— I’m way too non-confrontational for those sort of {Read More}

Taking a Mama break with Netflix and the #StreamTeam

GLOW Mom Sneak 1

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I bring tips and tricks and more streaming know-how than a raging river. (Or at least a comparable level.) Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and ‘Trolls’ earworms are entirely my own.  *** Here’s a gigantic news flash for anyone who’s been a parent longer than one commercial break: Parents need time to themselves and- if you’ll pardon the momentary gender bias- mamas need time to themselves (and sometimes sneak it in {Read More}

Promoting STEAM with “Project MC2” & the #StreamTeam

Netflix Parenting Cheat Sheet

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I’m super-duper happy to continue the convo this month about what the kids are learning- and from whom. Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and gadget-happy kids are entirely my own. *** Half of parenting is instilling important values in your kids. (The other half is yelling inane things from either the top or bottom of any given stairwell. “Trucks aren’t for nostrils!” et. al.) And I’m not going to lie; raising {Read More}

Netflixlogo1-2

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I get to have a stupid amount of fun and pretend it’s all for the children. Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and felt creations are entirely my own. (Okay, fine, the kids helped.) *** Remember back in the day, back when Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland, et.al were all about Putting On A Show? (I’m not saying it’s back in MY day, but it’s definitely in my mental Filofax of cultural {Read More}

Live-blogging jury duty*

Jury Duty

*…Not really. Because I’m fairly sure that’s illegal. Let’s try: Slightly time-delayed reporting on jury duty! I’m actually pretty excited about it. I’ve been training for this my entire life, what with the marathon sessions of Law & Order. (And Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Trial by Jury and oh my God, am I now in that one?!) Some of you who’ve been reading since way back in the day {Read More}

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I *usually* get to highlight their streaming awesomeness. But this month? I’m highlighting some questionable behavior. Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and unethical husbands are entirely my own. *** Whoo boy, do you people have feelings. I asked a simple question- or rather a few simple questions- and learned some things about you guys. When it comes to Netflix “cheating,” or the act of continuing on in a season sans your {Read More}

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I’m here to save your holiday week with programming that truly understands your family. (Even if you don’t.) Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and requests to PleaseStopTouchingMe are entirely my own. *** Sometimes you just want to throw a blanket over your head and tune out the world, you know? (Don’t even pretend like you don’t know. You know.) Netflix feels you. Netflix wants to snuggle up next to you on {Read More}
