Top TWO Things We're Bingeing Right Now

This post contains affiliate links.

Mr. Incredible works long hours. He kicks butt at work to provide for us, and that is all kinds of awesome! But when he gets home, he's tired and needs to relax. And that's OK. And us, moms? Whether we work outside the home or not, we need a break, too! And that's OK.

It's just necessary to take time to just sit and take a minute or few. And if this can be done while spending some time together, that is awesome. And truth be told, in our house, sometimes that good ol' quality time is spent bingeing a favorite show together. 

And I haven't forgotten the need for the little ones to chill, but that's a different post for a different day. Today, I'm sharing the top two picks that Mr. Incredible and I like to binge-watch, listen to, or read on days where we can find a few minutes to chill.

1. The Flash

Mr. Incredible has been addicted to The Flash lately, and while he's been speeding through it I have kept up enough of the story line to somewhat grasp what's going on. It's our thing. I can watch it without a whole heap of commitment while he gets more invested - and fields about thirty questions every episode.

I don't know if any of you keep up with the Flash (I mean, can anybody?!), and I certainly don't intend on giving away any thing important, but my husband and I got started on the most ridiculous argument a week or so about the 'Space Time Continuum'. See? Completely redonkulous.




At some point, a character from the future comes to the present. Wreaks a lot of havoc. Ends a lot lives. Makes a whole mess. 

Finally, a character from the present takes matters into his own hands and does something to ensure that the future character never exists. Yet when all is wrapped up, the present has still been effected by the future character that has now "never existed". 


I take issue with that. I say that if he never existed then (x, y, z) should not still be a mess. Mr. Incredible says that (x,y,z) are just written in stone, but from this point on there will be no havoc from the future guy.

We cannot agree on this. 

At. All.

Married people often argue about dumb stuff. It's how we love. It's part of spending time together. 😜 


2. Beautiful Creatures series (Caster Chronicle series)

It has taken me two years to get to book four, but here I am. This series is in the YA genre, but I'm strangely okay with that. It has captured my full attention. And, why has it taken me so long to read it? I'm so attached to these characters that I don't want the story to end. 
It takes place in the South, it's rich with history and spiced up with supernatural fiction and mystery. That's probably all I can say without giving too much away. 
I'm not a history buff in the sense that I know that much, but I am a ancestry nerd. This had me stalking my own southern ancestors and two seconds away from applying to the DAR (which I plan to do anyway!). And don't get me started on all the literary references. I love this series.
Let me not forget to mention how much I loved the audio books. I'm trying to convince Mr. Incredible to give them a listen. I know he'd get sucked right in.

So there you have it, these are the top two favorites that Mr. Incredible and I are enjoying right now. I hope you enjoyed it!

  1. I'm not a fan of the new comic TV series that has been trending right now... and I don't get to read a lot these days! I probably will try out the Flash though, on your recommendation. Right now I'm doing some serious bingeing on Locked Up on Netflix. lol.

    1. Yes! I know how that goes. I have a few shows that I've binged, then there was some small amount of closure, and I abandoned it for two years! lol #GossipGirl #OnceUponATime

Family Fridays: Roasting Marshmallows at the Kitchen Table

It's been a while since we had a Family Fridays post!
I can't even imagine how that happened, but we're back! And I can't wait to tell you what Pirate and I just did! 
But first! If you follow us on Facebook, (and you totally should!), you may have seen me post this. Well, here is the much awaited answer.
If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you may know how important quality time is to us, and especially to our six year old, Pirate. 

Pirate's days are long. They start before "bright and early", since it's still dark at 5am. By the time she gets off of the school bus, we get about three good hours with her a day, four if we're lucky. After the 7 o'clock hour rolls around, all bets are off. Exhaustion takes over. Monsters come out. 


All that to say, family time has to be found and seized!

One year old Tootsie Roll was already down for a nap when Pirate got off of the bus. It was too cold to play outside,  I took one of her favor…

Family Friday: D I Y Game of Clue!

I'm super psyched about this post! It's been in the works for about a week now, and has been a labor of love.  

Mr. Incredible works long hours, so family time has to be found and seized! Hopefully, this will be the first in a weekly series called Family Friday. True, I'm not posting this one on a Friday. But as it turns out, the timing turned out to be perfect as we are SNOWED IN!!
Without further ado, I give you:  The Game of Clue: DIY STYLE!


Nothing says family time like sitting around the table, accusing each other of murder! Clue is a game that is older than tablets and apps. It comes from my childhood, but Mr. Incredible and Pirate had never played before.
Pirate loves few things more than a good craft, so I wanted to see if we could use the wonders of Google (and our printer) to make our own. Originally, I had planned on personalizing it by making family and friends into the suspects. But I thought I’d better keep it simple this time. As soon as Pirate heard that I had a…

Family Fridays: 5 Family Activities to Try Today

It's Family Friday! Here is a list of five things you can do with your family today! Many of them are free, or at least inexpensive. But all of them have the potential to create some fun memories. 

1. Go to the park.



Grab a picnic blanket, pack a lunch & go to the park. It sounds like a cliché, but just getting outside and changing your environment is half the fun. Eat on the ground, play a game of I-spy, make an obstacle course and have the kids beat their best times, lay back and discover pictures in the clouds. The sky is the limit! Literally, if you're cloud watching!
2. Go bowling.



There’s nothing like the look on a kid's face the first time they knock a bunch of pins down!

3. Go rock hounding. 

This is a favorite in our home. Mr. Incredible and Pirate try and find unusual and special rocks, they bring their rocks home and identify them through books and online. Pirate loves to collect rocks in general. Mr. Incredible loves the science behind different rocks. They colle…
