Summer Mornings With Netflix #StreamTeam

We are exactly ONE day into summer. I both love and dread this season. I love it because I'm DONE with homework and packing lunches and getting kids to school. I need a break. I dread it because, I work from home. How am I going to carve out blocks of time to get work done?

Netflix to the rescue! Lemme give you a peek at my desk.
That's my computer. I'm coding a WordPress site. That's my iPad. I have my headset in and I'm watching House of Cards. My daughter is watching Moana on Netflix on the TV. (Have you watched it? It's REALLY good.) That is how I buy myself a chunk of time to get work done.

We've cued up Moana, Dr Strange, Captain America: Civil War, Finding Dory...Full confession, my daughter thinks I need a self help group for Dr. Strange. I may or may not have watched it 10 times. #TotallyHave
I have to share my guilty pleasure with you. Riverdale! Have you watched it? I binged it while working last week. It's SO not the comic book we grew up with as kids. It's kind of like high school Twin Peaks meets Heathers. I LOVE the parents. Trust me when I tell you, you'll recognize ALL of them!
Your turn, what's on your playlist this summer? *I am a member of the Netflix StreamTeam. While I am not paid, I do receive a free Netflix membership. All experiences and opinions are my own.

My Favorite Running Leggings

I'm guilty. Athleisure is all I wear. I am a runner, and a freelance designer. This means I am ALWAYS in running gear. My work is TOTALLY virtual. Now I'm going to cut to the chase... The Misty Copeland Collection from Under Armour, I am in LOVE. LOVE!

I tried on the UA Opening Night Printed Studio Legging and OMG, SMOOTH as butter. (Said in my best Coffee Talk accent.) I literally want to wear them every day. I'll give you they are a bit pricey, but #SoWorthIt. I find the cheaper leggings fall apart and loose their shape quickly. #NotThese

I also bought the grey Show Stopper sweatshirt and it is my new goto. I think I might have to go back and pick it up in navy too. Yes, it's that comfortable.

I want to make sure you know, this is NOT a sponsored post. UA does not know I'm writing this. When I find something I love, especially in the running arena, I have to share. SO check them out. You'll love it too! Now...what to buy next...

Happy Hour At 320 River Bar!

As a freelance designer. I work ALL the time. Wherever my laptop is, I'm working. I must admit, I do miss seeing people during the day. I'm alone working most of the day. When I got the invite to check out happy hour at 320 River Bar, I jumped at the chance. I love what Chicago has done with the river. It's so lovely to sit at the bar and watch the boats and the people go by on a warm sunny afternoon. AND yes, I will have a fruity drink! Cocktails, wine and beer start at only $5 weekly from 3:20-6pm. I HIGHLY recommend the Angus Beef Slider. #Delish There's no picking a favorite from the 320 Flatbreads. Do NOT miss the Buffalo Chicken. #MustTry Would you believe this is the FIRST time I've ever had Sangria? Seriously, I gotta get out more. DO NOT leave without trying the 320 Avocado Toast. It. Is. Perfection. Check out 320 River Bar ... enjoy the view ... and don't forget to give them a shout out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. What do you have planned for the summer? Me, I'll be sipping a Blueberry Mojito!
