I don't talk about this much,  but I am a TV and movie connoisseur. I spend many hours watching TV shows and movies with my husband. That's kind of our thing,  especially now that we have kids and can't go out as often. So I thought I would help you all out by giving you some suggestions on TV shows you need to start watching right now!

So what are the best shows to be watching you ask?


1. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon Prime TV)

This show is based in the 50's and is about the life Miriam "Midge" Maisel. Midge goes through a big life change suddenly,  and finds herself drunk, onstage at a comedy club. She is a potty mouth and gets herself into some trouble. The comedy club owner (played by Rosie O'Donnell) takes Midge under her wing to help her become a great comedian. 

My husband actually watched the whole first season without me because I just didn't care to add another show to my big list. Finally, a few weeks of him asking me to give it a shot,  I did. It's so hard not to watch. I'm addicted. This show makes me feel inspired to be a comedian.. and I've had no desire to be a comedian ever! Try it out,  you won't be disappointed!


2. The Handmaid's Tale (Hulu)

Based on a book written by Margaret Atwood. Set in a near future offered id a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian and theocratic state that has replaced the United States of America. Because of dangerously low reproduction rates, Handmaid's are assigned to bear children for elite couples that have trouble conceiving. 

I am definitely addicted to this show. It's hard to watch at times but it is so well written and the acting is phenomenal!


3. Ozark (Netflix)

Marty Byrde (played by Jason Bateman) is a financial planner who gets into some trouble and has to move his family from Chicago, to the Ozarks. There he must launder 500 million in 5 years for a Mexican drug lord.

This usually wouldn't be my type of show,  but my husband begged me to watch it with him. I don't regret it one bit! 
Season 2 just came out and I'm trying to watch it as slow as possible so I doubt have to wait another whole year for this show!


4. American Horror Story (on FX)

A Horror based TV show that has a different story every season, but some of the sa.e actors. Lady Gaga is even in one season. 
From Haunted houses, evil witches, and killer clowns,  this show has it all. 
It's currently on Season 8 which is about the Apocalypse. A few survivors are held up in a bunker, but with all the Hell they go through,  they start to wonder if it's worth staying or taking their chances in the apocalyptic wasteland.

I've been following this show since Season 1 and I think they do a great job. I do like some seasons better than others, but I'm kind of a horror freak so I love to watch this show. If you want to start this series I suggest binge-watching from season 1. It's so good!

5. Better Call Saul (on AMC)

A spin-off prequel from Breaking Bad. 
Jimmy McGill grew up as a con artist, only to become a small-time lawyer. This is the story of how Jimmy McGill becomes Saul Goodman,  a lawyer for criminals, and drug dealers. 

It's fun to watch the crossover that makes Jimmy into Saul, and how Breaking Bad ties into it. Bob Odenkirk does a fantastic job. 


There are many other shows I could add to this list but right now,  these are my favorite!

My husband and I are able to watch these shows because we have an Amazon Prime subscription and we also bought the Amazon Fire TV. With that setup,  you can get Amazon TV shows and movies,  and if you have subscriptions to Hulu or Netflix,  you can get that on the Amazon Fire TV as well! I love the variety of shows I get to watch!

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.
