Total Drama...#StreamTeam

I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team. I received a welcome kit which includes a year’s subscription to Netflix. Opinions expressed are my own.

Gonna let you in on a little secret...I love cartoons. Love 'em.

I used to keep this hidden. The kiddos would be watching Regular Show (which I love) or Gravity Falls (which in my opinion is the best show on TV) I'd watch along with them, basically because I enjoyed them. Dirty. Little. Secret.

About a week ago, I was watching The Daily Show. Jon Stewart was talking to Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss. Out of nowhere..he drops, "Gravity Falls has these incredible plot lines..." Wait..YOU Jon Stewart are watching Gravity Falls? Heck yeah!

I'm NOT the only adult watching cartoons! Woo-hoo!

One cartoon that is in HEAVY rotation at our house, that you can catch on Netflix is Total Drama.

Am I the only one watching? I can't be...

It's literally a snarky animated version of Survivor. The host, Chris McLean is so the cartoon version of Jeff Probst. He's funny, and snarky and completely wicked. Every season, they rotate competitors and every episode a contestant is voted off.

This show is like popcorn to me. I just keep eating it. 

Guilty pleasure time folks...what's your favorite cartoon?

Lululemon Peplum Tank Love

Not sponsored, just love.
I never shop, but for whatever reason, I have become quite smitten with peplums. I give you exhibit A from my Instagram account.

When I saw this SUPER cute tank at Lulu, I simply had to buy it!

If anyone at Lululemon is listening, please make a peplum jacket to match...I pinky promise I will buy it too ;)

*It's out of stock on their website, but you might be able to find one in the store. It's a bit pricey at $58, but it's just. So. Cute.

The Witch Doctor

I've had neck pain for about 6 months now. It's not unbearable pain...just constant. These days when you see a doctor they ask, "On a scale of 1-10, how does the pain feel?" For me...that's a solid 6.

I did something I've never done before. I went to a chiropractor. I asked a ton of questions, talked to a lot of people, and a lot of them said, "Make sure he's not a witch doctor." Not really sure what that means. I was a little nervous about it, but I have felt like I've wanted to crack my neck for the last 5 years. I sucked it up, and went.

My chiropractor is a runner, which I like. He did all kinds of tests and x-rays and then we got about the business of actually doing the adjustment. WOWZERS...that is a freaky thing. He cracked all kinds of places up my spine and then got to my neck. Holy crack I had no idea could happen Batman! It was the loudest crunch ever...on BOTH sides. Ummm yuck.

That said, my neck feels fantastic. Like...really FANTASTIC. I've gone twice now. I'm supposed to keep going for 8 weeks. I've read all kinds of negativity about how there are no studies to prove it works...and how they are snake oil salesman, and I gotta say, that's not my experience. My Doctor is a really nice guy, there are tons of folks in his office, and everyone seems happy and getting over one sort of pain or another. My neck pain is "tech neck" which doesn't surprise me since I'm on this computer 5-8 hours a day. I need to pay more attention to my posture and get in a more natural position when I work.
Enter my new desk! I LOVE it SO much. It's the peekaboo clear console table from CB2. Did I mention how much I love it? ;)

 I felt a little weird going to the chiropractor, but the bottom line is, it's working for me. Between my desk, and my witch doctor, my neck is on it's way to a full recovery ;)
