There Is Always Something to Watch on Netflix #StreamTeam

I am a Netflix Stream Team member and have been given a Netflix membership to help facilitate my posts. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

To say that we love Netflix in our house would be a gross understatement. It has been over 8 years since we said goodbye to cable, though we still pay for just the basic network channels, and thanks to Netflix I don't miss it. I find myself always looking forward to what they will be adding next and of course get sad when something I enjoy goes away. This month, my family and I enjoyed some old favorites as well as some new additions.

My boys were absolutely thrilled to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman recently added to the Netflix lineup. While they all really like this movie, my youngest who is five absolutely loves it. It is a fun adventure that both the kids and parents can enjoy.

Resurrected from the 1960s animated series "Rocky and Bullwinkle," canine genius Mr. Peabody and young Sherman take a dizzying ride through time.

As for me, I enjoyed some new and old favorites. I am a pretty big Hunger Games fan but sadly I did not get to see MockingJay Part 1 in theaters. So when it released a few weeks ago, I found myself at Target bright and early to get my copy. However in order to prepare myself, I needed a little Catching Fire refresher. So I re-watched it for the millionth time on Netflix before I finally dove into the third movie the following day. Catching Fire is my favorite movie of the franchise so far and I love having it just a click away whenever the mood strikes.

Then of course I fell back on my old favorite, Friends, which is my most favorite TV show of all time. I tend to be a night owl and stay up late relaxing with the new puppy on the couch and getting some work done. I like to have something to watch while I'm working and Friends has been perfect for my late night viewing. I manage to to get a few episodes in most night, or like last night when I'm really burning the midnight oil I get 6 episodes in. I will never ever tire of the humor and I find myself laughing just as hard as I did the first time I watched them. I can't wait till I get to my favorite "PIVOT" episode, which should actually be coming up soon!

What have you been watching on Netflix this month? Any new shows that you have become addicted to?

Affordable Spring Fashion for Kids at OshKosh B'Gosh #ImagineSpring #IC

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

The first day of Spring has come and gone and despite the fact that there is still a foot of snow on the ground here, we are so excited for a warmer season! And warmer weather means it is time to get short sleeves and shorts in the closets. Now with four boys, I am thankfully able to hand down a lot of clothes to the younger ones, which saves me a considerable amount of money. We do need to purchase some new clothes every season for not just the oldest, but the whole lot as well because let's face it, boys destroy clothes. We are by no means fashion gurus in this house, but we do like to keep somewhat in style but within a reasonable budget. OshKosh B'gosh is a store I have shopped at since they were all teeny tiny things because I know I am getting good quality without breaking the bank.

While we have a Carter's store nearby, we sadly don't have an OshKosh one. But I am a heavy online shopper and OshKosh.com is a very easy use site that had me finding what I needed and placing my order in just minutes. The first section I always hit up is the clearance section. Here you can find already reasonably priced clothes at considerable savings. I found t-shirts for my boys for just $5.99 which is pretty amazing. And I know that I will get at least two to three seasons out of them because OshKosh apparel always holds up well for us.

In addition to the clearance items, even the new Spring items were marked down, up to 50% off! Everything I purchased was at least half off which led to an awesome bottom line for me. I ended up with 8 shirts and 3 pairs of shorts for under $90 when I used the coupon down below.

As you can see, one of the 7 year old's was excited to model his new ninja shirt. I knew that one was going to be a big hit.

Overall I was extremely pleased with my shopping experience and the items that I purchased. I will say that the size 12 shirts that I ordered for my 10 year old were a bit on the small side (a little short) which was a surprise to me because he wears a 10/12 in most brands and in past experience OshKosh runs on the bigger side for us. However with 3 younger brothers, they will get plenty of use so I am not worried about it.

Do you need to outfit your kids for Spring? Oshkosh has everything you could possible need for your boy or girl! Most new items are still on sale for up to 50% and the coupon below will give you an extra 25% off! It would be silly to pass up on this savings opportunity. Visit the Oshkosh Store Locator to find one near you or shop online at OshKosh.com.

Fellowes M-12C Shredder for Spring Gifting #GiftFellowes #IC

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Fellowes Brands. I received a product sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Some links in this post contain affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on my link.

The clocks have been set an hour forward; the temperature outside is going to be slightly above freezing for a few days.... it seems that Spring is just around the corner. Or at least I hope it is because I can tell you that this New England lady is really sick of zero temps and snow. With Spring often comes weddings and showers and house warming parties and the Fellowes M-12C Shredder will make a sensible gift for any of those occasions.

Fellowes M-12C Shredder Features:
  • Cross-Cut blades that shreds up to 12 sheets of paper at a time
  • Each sheet is shred into approximately 302 particles
  • SafeSense® Technology automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening
  • Shreds credit cards, paper clips, staples and junk mail
  • Shreds for 5 minutes before automatic cool down

I've had this shredder for a few months now and it is definitely the best one I have ever owned. (Read my Fellowes M-12C Shredder review). It is powerful enough to shred multiple pages at a time (up to 12), including staples, which makes the shredding process so much faster and less tedious. No longer do I let my shredding pile build when I can quickly zip pages through whenever necessary.

But why would you want to give this as a gift to someone? I know it is not really a fun gift but it is very practical and in my opinion necessary, which overrides fun or cute any day. I certainly would rather have a shredder I will use often over those crystal candlesticks that will just collect dust for the next 25 years. (Seriously, why did I register for those candlesticks? I don't even burn candles.) In this day and age, sadly we can't trust very many people. Identity theft doesn't just happen through online means, but it can be achieved by merely going through one's trash. Using a shredder to destroy any information sensitive documents gives you another layer of protection and I feel it is something many young couples probably overlook.

In addition to all of its capabilities, the Fellowes M-12C Shredder also has built in safety features to keep not only little hands safe but your own as well. When skin makes contact with the silver metal around the paper opening, it immediately stops. I also like to keep mine unplugged when not in use for an added safeguard. So if the couple you're gifting this to has little ones running around, or plans to soon, they know that those tiny fingers are safe. 

Do you have any weddings, showers or housewarming events to attend this Spring? We have one wedding coming up in May that I am looking forward to.

Fellowes M-12C Shredder is available at Target with a suggested retail price of $99.99
