Stranded--With Netflix


Today I am linking up with Shay and Erika for another round of Stranded. This time it's a fun one--I'm stuck on an island with Netflix. I mean really? How bad would it be to be stuck on an island with Netflix--I'm pretty sure I'd go in a heartbeat. Just sayin'. Without further ado, let's get started. 


This is one of my all time favorite shows. I remember when we use to get the DVDs from Netflix (Do they still do that?) and I would order Gilmore Girls seasons. It was amazing to me that I could "binge" watch all of the episodes. I still do to this day. No regrets. 


My Mother in Law knows every show on TV--she might be a season late but she still knows about it. This was one of them. Try to get through an episode without crying. I dare you. It's amazing--and although I've stopped a couple times to binge on another series, I always come back. 




This show came out either when I was in high school or college, I don't remember exactly. I stayed home my first year of college and every time a new episode was on, my dad would watch it with me. I'm telling you, it captivates everyone. Right before I had my son, my husband and I started watching it. We watched every episode before he was born. That's saying something because that's a whole lot of episodes.

This is such a cute show--small town, country boys, and a doctor who is taking over her dads business. It's an easy watch and can definitely be watched when you want to take a break from the show you're currently binging. 


What Netflix show would you take with you to a deserted island?

Finally Friday!


I know I've said before---but I love Fridays! I love spending the weekend as a family and just relaxing. It seems like we are always on the go during the week, which is fine because I'm not one to stay cooped up in the house. This was our first week off of school and I'm remembering what it's like to be a stay at home mom again. 


It's hot ya'll. Summer is officially here and although I'm only 13 weeks pregnant--I feel 200 times hotter then any given day. We've been living in the pool, splash pads, and Adventure Island. Thank the good Lord in heaven I have a fish as a son because if not we'd be cooped up in side all summer. Oh--and I'm all about the aquarium. Indoors where its cool, shaded splash pad, and lunch on the water. Win, win, winning


So I'm not lazy--just running out of ideas. This is where Plated. comes in. You know when you're scrolling on FB and all these ads just capture you in and you end up getting something...that's Plated. Except I did my research, because I really wanted food that I would actually eat. I had tried another company before and wasn't a fan of really anything they sent. Plated. kinda sounds delicious, plus you can choose your own meals! We are sticking to the 2 a week with a dessert. Because this mama loves dessert with her meal. 


I love summer because it's always been a time of beachin', vacations, amusement parks--this summer is definitely not falling short of that. We have a fun trip planned in a few weeks to St. Augustine with my mom and siblings. Once I finish the laundry from that trip Sometime after we return, we are heading on a road trip to Jacksonville to see my cousins and their sweet babes. Then it's off to Sesame Place where we will spend a few days, then back down to Florida with a pit stop at St. Simon's island! A few weeks later we will be heading to Anna Maria where we will spend more time with my mom and sibs and have some updated family pics at one of our favorite vacation spots. 


13 weeks today. 
Which means 13 days until we find out if it's a boy or a girl? 



Before our Adventure Island excursion today I asked a friend to meet me at the park for some playtime. But before that even happened I decided I needed donuts in my life for donut day. Like you need an excuse for donuts. So this mama drove to Publix got a half dozen and some chocolate milk and happily ate one while my son splashed in all the puddles at the park.


What was your favorite part of this week? Any fun plans this summer?
