Lessons On My 40th Birthday

Me and the Fam! I have news. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. It was my second COVID/lockdown birthday and I wasn't even sad about it. I'm not a huge birthday bash kind of girl, so not having to break the news to everyone that there would be no crazy party felt sooooooo good.  I've thought a lot about this post. About turning 40. What do I want to share here to help document this milestone birthday? When my kids look back and read this online journal so to speak, what do I want them to know about what I was thinking on May 11, 2021? And here's what I came up with: On celebrating my special day: COVID birthdays aren't so bad as an adult. Sure they suck shit for kids (can't have a party, can't see their family and friends, hardly any presents because said parties are a no-no). But for me, as an adult, I understand why I can't party it up with like 50 of my closest friends and family members. I understand that a Vegas trip is out of the questi

Quarantine Survival: 4 Netflix Canada Shows to Binge Watch

I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I am using this self-isolation/quarantine time wisely. I haven't started any new hobbies, nor do I have any interest in learning a new language (thanks for the tip Gwyneth).

Basically, my quarantine survival kit consists of wifi, social media, screen time for the kids, and Netflix. Lots of Netflix.

If you're looking for new shows to binge-watch...here are a few of my faves that I will probably rewatch soon!

Workin' Moms

OK, so I love this show. Not just because it's a Canadian original, but because I think every mom during different stages of parenting can relate to these characters and struggles at various points. It's hilarious, some parts are uncomfortable, and some storylines hit a little too close to home. But trust me, it's an easy and fast show to breeze through if you're quarantining yourself during this pandemic.

GOOP Lab

GOOP has a pretty comprehensive synopsis of what their Netflix docuseries is about (https://goop.com/the-goop-lab-netflix/). But what I found most interesting is how the ideas come to fruition and how the team really uses themselves as guinea pigs to get to the bottom of the research. My favourite episodes were Cold Comfort (ep. 2), and The Energy Experience (ep. 5).

Cable Girls

I needed an exciting go-to period drama to lose myself in, and this one did the trick. 5 whole seasons of how the lives of four young women in the 1920s are connected as they delve deep into their careers at the cable company in Madrid. Love, mystery, crime, drama...it's all there, and it's spectacular! 

Love is Blind

I'm not going to lie, I miss the Bachelor! And this show got me out of my Bachelor slump! There are people you may want to slap, there are budding love stories that may make you weep....all I'm gonna say is that you will love some...hate some....and then you'll stalk them on Instagram to see if they're still together or not! Come on...you know you want to come over to the dark side with me!
