Coming to a Netflix stream near you

Since moving to Norway, I’ve had to come to terms with giving up most of my TV shows. As it stands now, there’s no more Game of Thrones, no more Scandal and I haven’t been able to find Empire, but I haven’t given up hope on finding Cookie.

New on Netflix: Dinosaurs + Trucks = DinoTrux

Looking for something different to watch with the kiddos this weekend? Netflix has a new original series that combines dinosaurs and trucks, a concept that I’m surprised I haven’t seen before.

#TBT: I’m Hosting A Throwback Thursday Netflix Giveaway

It’s Thursday. Or in the social media realm, it’s Throwback Thursday. The day where people post photos of themselves from back in the day.

It’s the day where your Facebook feed unwillingly belches out mullets, Jheri curls, and overalls that hang off of one shoulder. Or maybe it’s more of a reflection of former addicts of Cross Colours, AquaNet and leggings with stirrups.

I'm about 3 years old here, sitting in a rocker that my mom used when I was an infant and now sits in my home.
