The Ranch (2016)

A Netflix original series. Netflix has gained quite the fame for putting put their own movies and series. Netflix’s newest series about a ranching family falling on hard times as most families do.

The-Ranch

Stars of the show include Ashton Kutcher (Colt), Danny Masterson (Rooster), and none other than super, sexy man’s man Sam Elliott (Beau). This family is your typical family at odds. The youngest son Kutcher runs off after high school to play pro football but never quite makes it. Beau (Elliott) and Rooster (Masterson) meanwhile have been trying to hold down the family ranch by themselves for the past few years. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true series without a long lost love interest, Maggie returns in the second episode. The bog question left hanging over everyone’s heads?  What happens between Beau and his estranged wife and what could happen between the affianced Maggie and Colt?

This series is only 10 episodes long, so it can be a quick and easy binge. The episodes definitely have some good comedy but do tend to run on a bit sometimes. But, if you can make it through those bits, you are in for a treat! Season 2 is only rumored to come out this Fall 2016, fingers crossed!

Bucket Lists

More often than not I scroll through my Facebook account in search of bucket lists and have you ever’s posts. I find them fascinating, for myself and others. I truly enjoy weeding through my own past and find the awesome little nuggets of myself to share with others. I also love reading about others little nuggets of their lives, especially if I don’t get to spend as much time with them as I want or even to remember when with them virtually.

So as a mini writing project for me this weekend…I am going to try and create a bucket list of my own and upload it to here as well as my Facebook account. Hopefully some people will share, probably not others but that’s okay.

As I have been mulling over this little project for the past few days, I have been wondering to myself many options to include. Do I use just simple words for fill-in style or am I okay to use short phrases. I have filled out a lot of these on my own, but want to create a unique one I haven’t seen before.

So here goes and wish me luck!

Natural World

So my husband came up to me a few weeks ago and was describing his day at work. Apparently he was suing some of my lotion bars at work and a few of the “ladies” at work asked him about it. He told them my wife makes it. Now, he wants me to ready up a list of items I make. The list was really boring as I have no names or titles for my stuff as it is mostly a hobby with no real interest in making it into  business. Especially because the natural world is already DIY exploding.

So I made my list but would love some ideas on titles for my stuff?

Help a girl out please?

Teen Witch

A movie straight out of the eighties! I loved this movie the very first time I saw it in the 90’s and have ever since. This movie stars Robyn Lively and Dan Gauthier (1989). Technically this is labeled as a comedy, but trust me it is definitely one of the coming of age movies that really didnt start coming out until the 2000’s.

This movie is about a girl and the boy she likes. But doesn’t end there. AS this girl may just be a witch and gets all these new powers. What should she do with them? Why put a spell on herself and the whole school of course! But, then she learns her true worth and who she really is.

I can still watch this movie anytime I wasn’t and get a kick out of it!

Been a rough week(s)

I know I haven’t posted in awhile. Sorry about that. Work has been crazy and my house is full, six boys, 10 hours a day! I am exhausted at the end of the day.

But…I made time for date night this weekend with the hubby and the galpals. Went to Art A Whirl with the hubby, open studio event spanning the NE Arts District in Minneapolis. Dinner out at Pizza Luce, and home to crash!

So I basically had no time to post anything, my apologies. Also, had no time to think about the Feature Friday. Will think more on this this week and see what I can come up with on Friday, thinking I might debut something. Kind of leaning towards the Netflix idea, seemed to get a few likes for that one.

 

 

Feature Friday Coming Soon!

I have been thinking about doing a weekly feature. I am uncertain what it is I am going to focus on for Fridays. I know Fridays are probably already busy, but as it is usually my only day off from the jobs, it is my best day to post. No hubby to distract in loving ways, no work kids to supervise either and no customers to be a slave to.

So I have a few ideas, but I am not sure what to share here. I feel a bit mean, cause I don’t want someone else to use my idea, though I doubt they are original. But….here is a list of some of my thoughts for “Feature Friday”.

  1. Character Biopics- I make up a character and flesh them out so to speak
  2. Words of Wisdom- things I hear from the mouths of my boys at work
  3. Book reviews- I read ALOT
  4. Natural Concoctions- some of the recipes and bloopers I make for natural beauty products
  5. My weekly to-do list with comedic commentary
  6. My Netflix addiction commentary and what to watch

Please leave feedback and let me know if anything even remotely sounds interesting.
