Netflix #StreamTeam #TBT

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

Every week I get a little nostalgic as I look through my Facebook feed at all the old photos. Baby pictures, pictures of family vacations, Chrismas and holiday pictures, and weddings. Oh how I love wedding pictures!

This week I'm taking #TBT to a new level.

Who says we have to limit ourselves to photos? Absolutely not! So this Thursday I'm focusing on a few of my favorite sitcoms from the 80s. Sitcoms that I've recently revisited through Netflix.


Family Ties needs only two words to explain why it was so popular . . . Alex Keaton!


For 11 seasons, Cheers was the place to go to take a break from all your worries. A place where everybody knows your name.




The Wonder Years originally aired on ABC from 1988-1993. It was a story about 12 year old Kevin Arnold, played by Fred Savage, growing up in the late 60s and early 70s with his best friend Paul and girl friend Winnie. Oh yeah, and his very annoying brother, Wayne. Still entertaining even 25 years after it first aired!

It's hard to pick a favorite from all the great shows back then, but it sure is fun revisiting an old friend.

Not a Netflix subscriber? I'm giving away a three month subscription code to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment below with your email address and I'll let you know if you've won. Contest ends Friday April 18, 2013.

Cost of Living Changes 1963 vs Now

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

The year was 1963
  • President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas
  • Dr. Martin Luther King delivers his "I Have a Dream" speech
  • Unemployment reaches 6.1 percent
  • Soviet cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova becomes the first woman in space
  • The sedative Valium is made available 
Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Lisa Kudrow and Phobe Cates were all born in 1963.

Tippi Hedren made her acting debut in Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The Birds and Jerry Lewis made us laugh in The Nutty Professor.

The dollar also went much further in 1963 than it does today!

Minimum wage was a mere $1.40.

Things you could buy for under $1 include:
  • milk
  • a dozen eggs
  • a loaf of bread
  • a 6 pack of beer

Spring Break and #netflixkids

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.


After a long day of hiking at the White Tail Mountain Regional Park and then filling our bellies with spaghetti and meatballs as big as your head we settled in for a relaxing evening with Netflix.

When I set up our Roku last month, I was able to set up Netflix profiles for 5 people. Each of these profiles has its own personalized movie and TV show suggestions, and recently watched list, making it more like 5 individual Netflix accounts. Also, each one of these profiles can then be linked to a different Facebook account. This makes it easy to share what you are watching with your Facebook friends and also discover new shows by seeing what your friends are watching.

Naturally the boys each got their own profile. This way while they're visiting Lego Ninjago won't show up in my recommendations. I was also able to set parental controls to make sure their viewing experience was appropriate for their little eyes and kids' profiles can't link to Facebook. Content that is not kid-friendly won't be displayed in searches, recommendations or previously viewed titles while in the kids' section.


I was absolutely amazed that Joey picked up the remote and had no trouble navigating directly to his favorite programs!
