10 Thoughts on Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix

10 Thoughts on Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix This post contains affiliate links!  In 2004, I had a little baby boy and we signed up for Netflix. My mom told me about this great show that we could watch on DVD with Netflix, Gilmore Girls. I was hooked right away. So was my son. He would stop whatever he was doing and watch the theme song with amazement. That little baby is now 12 and Gilmore Girls is back with new episodes. Netflix is amazing and one of the reasons that Netflix is so amazing is …

Pokémon Go

10 Reasons Why Pokemon Go Is The Best Thing Ever Unless you have been living under a big rock, you should have heard of Pokémon Go by now.

Why You Should Listen To Podcasts

Why You Should Listen To Podcasts Podcasts are my favorite thing these days! I am so addicted! There are so many different types of podcasts out there too. I even wrote a post about my favorites… I first found podcasts way back in 2009 but I had to download each episode to my ipod. It wasn’t easy but I found a few photography ones and learned a lot about photography while I took my little boys on walks around Germany. I didn’t do too much more with them until last summer when I started listening to a few of them …

Facebook Saved the Military Spouse

How Facebook Saved the Military Spouse Back in 2007, during my first deployment, all my Army wife friends were on Myspace. A lot of my friends from back home were there too. Myspace was the place to be. During the deployment, we would spend time together at the park, head home, put the kids to bed and then log in to share photos, comments and update our music list. Remember the Myspace music list? We took quizzes and looked for old friends. Back then I would log onto Facebook about once a week or so. It really wasn’t as popular even …

Podcasts You Should Listen To

    Podcasts! I love them. I found them back in 2009 when I was spending the summer with my parents. At the time I had to download them to my ipod and listen that way. I only really listened to one that was on photography. In 2012 I discovered a few more but my phone did not have very much space. I upgraded last fall and was able to add more. Then Serial came out and I really started getting into them. The nice thing about podcasts is that I can listen to them while I am cleaning, working, …

Why I Love Parenthood and the Bravermans

A few weeks ago Parenthood aired its very last show. I caught up on the season last week and have now seen them all. It ended well and the last few episodes were very touching. There are a few reasons why I love this show. My mom told me about it after she watched a couple of seasons. She kept telling me I would love it and I did. This is why I loved the show so much and why I am sad it had to end. I am going to try not to give away any real spoilers but …

I Love The Outlander Series

Have you ever heard of the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon? It’s amazing!!! I was introduced to it when a friend told me about it in 2009. I read all the books that were out and caught up in 2012. Then I had to wait for the eighth book to come out which is did this past June. I am not reading as much as I used to but I am about halfway through it. It’s really good so far. I think I like it a bit more than An Echo In The Bone. Here are the books… Outlander Dragonfly In Amber …

Guest Post: Motherhood and Social Media

Motherhood and Social Media Before the advent of Facebook, Pinterest, Skype and various other social media tools, motherhood was, in some ways, a much more isolating experience. Of course, before social media, mothers may have had email, phone calls and in-person visits. But social media and tools like smart phones and web cams bring your friends and family right into your living room, regardless of location, and allow them experience the growth of your child up close and personal. These days, moms can keep in touch with friends and family like never before. Social media serves another important purpose: it …

My post for today for Everyone Serves for Blue Star Families is going to be about the lessons learned during the shutdown and why it seems the Military is one of the biggest targets. Is there …
