BEST OF NETFLIX; When all else fails!

Tell me you know the feeling? Your favorite reality series have come to an end (Big Brother Canada), your favorite new comedy series got cancelled (Grandfathered), you can’t figure out what’s going on with your other classic comedy series (New Girl) and your PVR is full to the brim with things that make you contemplate just calling it a night and going to bed at 8pm (Pawn Stars, Doc McStuffin and Napkin Man). So when good TV fails me, I have Netflix! Who knew the comfort of TV anytime, anywhere, would be a security blanket for me. Who am I kidding, I knew… I knew since shows like Saved by the […]

BEST OF NETFLIX; Unexpected Night Off

You know when you unexpectedly get a night off, you child skips off to your parents place for a sleep over leaving you and your husband with a childless day and night? No? Me neither… until a few weekends ago.

Our weekends are the only real time that we get to spend together as Sammy works shift work, we utilize our weekends the best way we can […]

This is why for the first trimester we pretty much stayed indoors and vegged out. Loads of crafts, backyard playing and movies… ALL THE NETFLIX SHOWS AND MOVIES! I loved that most of these days I had company, the family was very much into hanging out with me couch-side. Pajamas all day was something that became less of a treat and more of a normalcy in the house for the past few months. […]

BEST OF NETFLIX; for the Holidays {+giveaway}

Isn’t it funny how an event or moment can mold into a family tradition so quickly? It’s sorta’ the case with baking cookies while watching a Christmas movie over the Holidays. It doesn’t just happen once in this house, I mean come on a dozen cookies only lasts a night of binge watching Homeland, right? Sofia and I bake cookies over the holidays at least 3 or 4 times, and along with being paired with a huge flour’y mess it also goes perfectly with a Christmas cartoon or classic Christmas movie.  This time, we tried a new recipe, which I will not share as I would love to […]
