Friday Show and Tell + Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! No matter your feelings on this oft-beloved and oft-detested holiday, I hope it’s filled with chocolate and cookies!

happy valentine's day from @janemaynard

I have a bunch of stuff to share today. Get ready!

Netflix Stream Team | @janemaynard

First, I’m now officially a member of the Netflix Stream Team (basically a bunch of bloggers who like Netflix). Our family uses Netflix ALL the time, so I am happy to be working with them! Also, I started a TV blog to help alleviate the guilt associated with my excessive TV watching because I love TV, so obviously I have no problem talking about television shows and movies! To kick off my stream teaming, just a few quick things:

  • If you aren’t using Netflix already, you DO know it’s only $7.99 a month for the streaming service, right? My friend Rebecca loves TV as much as I do but hasn’t signed up yet. When I told her it was only $7.99 she was like, “That’s it? I had no idea!” and I think she might have even stopped at Best Buy to get a Roku that night. So, I’m just making sure those of you who have no idea how inexpensive Netflix streaming is now know. Totally worth it, even if the only thing you ever watch on there is Breaking Bad (please note that you should only click that link if you’ve seen the last season or you might hate me forever).
  • Netflix profiles are the best. You can set up profiles for different members of the family. This, in my opinion, was the greatest improvement to the service that Netflix could have made. Now we always make sure the kids login with their account, that way Nate and my queue isn’t filled with kids’ shows and the kids never get inappropriate content (ahem, Breaking Bad) suggested to them.
  • House of Cards season 2 is back today. Happy. Valentine’s. Day. To. You. WOOHOO! (Even Pres. Obama is down with Frank Underwood.)

20 chocolate and pretzel recipes from @janemaynard on Babble

Here’s all my Babble stuff from the week!

And my posts on Cosmopolitan this week!

My kids don’t have school today, so I’m off to quickly finish work and then have some fun! We started the day with stuffed French toast and chocolate from Mimi. It should be a good day!

As always, please share anything you would like – links to funny/interesting/sad/inspiring stuff you found on the Internet this week, links to your own blogs, or just tidbits from your lives, it’s all good!

    Love getting the roundup of some of your posts on other websites. That Kale and Butternut Squash soup on your cosmo page looks amazing.

    What can I share….the boys and I went through a phase of not listening to as much music, but now we’re back in the swing of things. Our regular playlist right now includes Arcade Fire, Frozen, Train, Taylor Swift, Lorde, the Beatles, Gotye, etc.

  2. Netflix…we got rid of cable and watch Netflix now from the Apple TV. HUGE money saver!
