I have fallen in LOVE with Periscope!

No one is more surprised than me. I downloaded Periscope to my phone maybe three weeks ago. Didn't look at it again until last week. It's SUPER fun! I really like it.
It's kind of like if a podcast and YouTube had a baby. Actually, it's live streaming. I just started, but I'm having a ball with it. You can see a couple of my scopes here, and here. I'm am just now getting the hang of it.

Yes, this weekend I actually ordered a tripod and holder so I can set my phone anywhere and scope. I guess you could say I'm jumping in with both feet! I am @napwarden on Periscope. Yes, I did look into changing my social handles to my name, at this point, that is just not possible. I really want my handle the same everywhere, and my name and every variation is taken. SO...I'm digging in, and embracing @napwarden. That's just the way it's gotta be folks.

SO...who's scoping? Drop your handle in the comments so I can find you.

*Lastly, there is a really cool looking Periscope Summit going on in NY in September. I SO want to go, but I don't think I could find a roomie last minute. I'll sure keep you posted if I do go. How fun would that be?!

Coffee-n-Cream Popscicles!

I'm not going to lie...it's hot. I'm a winter runner, and I'll be the first to admit it. Running in the heat, it gets to me. While I love my one cup of coffee in the morning, some days after a long run, I just can't do it. BUT...I've got these Popsicle molds...
Where's the harm in trying coffee Popsicles?
Oh. My. Yum! That just hits the spot, and it could not be easier to make. It's easy peasy, all you need is heavy cream, your favorite coffee and sugar to taste. Mix a little sugar in with cream and pour into bottom of Popsicle molds and freeze. Mix cream, 3 cups of coffee and sugar to taste. Let cool. Pour coffee cream mixture into molds and freeze overnight. Bam...Coffee-n-Cream Popsicles!
I don't know what it is about Popscicles, they just make me happy.
How are you staying cool this summer?

Dragons Race to the Edge #StreamTeam

Summer is in full swing in Chicago, and it's getting HOT. After camps all morning, everyone is ready to get in some AC and chill a bit. We are LOVING Netflix's new series Dragons: Race to the Edge!

It's all the fun and fantasy from the original two movies packed into all new adventures. All of your favorite dragons and characters are back, with some really fun new ones.

What I love about this show is that it encourages my kids to dream. There's nothing I would rather see than my kids playing out their own adventures when the TV is turned off. It's a magical thing. Although I must warn the Dragons...in our house, somehow...the Legos won!

I'm curious to hear, what are you and your family streaming this summer?
