Time to Relax During My Vacation with @Netflix #StreamTeam


Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Netflix as a part of my participation on the Netflix Stream Team. All opinions are always my own.

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying your summer so far. As for me, my vacation started just a few days ago and I’m taking full advantage of my days off before I head back to work August 8th. During that time, I plan to have some fun in the sun with my family, visit some local places and relax in front of the TV with my honey and of course, my lovely Netflix.

Recently, I received a cute package from my friends over at Netflix for the second season of Orange is The New Black.

Can you believe I’ve never watched a single episode? Well that’s going to change because I’ve already started reading the book and let me tell you it’s so GOOD! I cannot wait to start watching it. I’ve got lots to catch up since they’re already on Season Two which launched June 6th but that’s ok. I can go on a binge and watch Season One when the kids are in bed.

There are a few shows on my queue that I’ve been watching from the very beginning. Shows like Weeds and Shameless are a few that I’m obsessed with. My hubby and I like to watch these once the kids are in bed so we can snack at the same time. We like to call it our “date night” since we don’t have too many of those.

Below are some shows that are available on Netflix so you can go on a binge-watch also. 😉

Snack Like a Gladiator: Red Wine and Pizza Popcorn


It doesn’t take many episodes of Scandal to realize main gladiator, Olivia Pope, consumes copious amounts of red wine and big bowls of popcorn after a long day. Like Olivia, we know you’re the “fixer” in your family too — click >here to learn how to make your own Scandal-worthy snack for the ultimate indulgence.

    We are binge watching “House of Cards.” I suggest The Wire, The Shield and Sons of Anarchy!!

  2. OMG is The Wire on Netflix too! I must rewatch!! I do recommend Scandal and Pretty Little Liars. I know the girls are HS chicks but the writing is really good and keeps you on the edge of your seat! I love OITNB but after I binge watch the season I’m all what’s next? Can’t wait to see the next season!! It ended so well this season!

  4. I’ve never watched it either. I’m excited about being off from work and finally having a little time to myself to do so. I plan on reading the book too.

    • Too bad I’m not off during the summer but at least I get out at 2! I’m looking forward to my two week vacation at the end of August.

  5. Can’t wait for you to start OITNB…I only started watching a couple of months ago and am completely caught up and HOOKED! One of my favorite shows! I’m hoping to start watching House of Cards and Breaking Bad while some of my favorite shows (The Following, Scandal) are on break!
