Sneak Off for some “Me Time” With Netflix This Month! #StreamTeam

We know there are only so many times you can hear the Dinotrux theme song before you start sneaking off to binge the new season of Orange is the New Black in the bathtub or “do work in the garage” while you secretly watch Voltron: Legendary Defender. Don’t be ashamed, moms and dads, you’re definitely not alone.

Below, you can check out some of our favorite Netflix shows to sneak off and watch, particularly the ones that are getting new seasons this month! (So excited for more Orange is the New Black!!) Also, on the movie side of things, I’m thrilled to let you all know that the Jurassic Park trilogy– my all-time FAVORITE movies– are now available to stream as well! What Netflix movies and tv can you not resist sneaking off to catch up on?

SpongeBob Movie Sponge Out Of Water Premiere and New SpongeBob Toys!


SpongeBob Movie Sponge Out Of Water is now in theaters! Three words: Go See It! If you are a SpongeBob fan you are going to laugh your face off. Recently readers were able to download passes to the New York City premiere. We were invited, too! The premiere touted a yellow carpet and stars galore. As fate would have it, Emily woke up with a high fever, thankfully MommysMingle was able to walk the carpet for us. Mr. Krabs, Clancy Brown, himself was on hand with others to sign autographs and give handshakes! You can check out the movie here:

My daughter should have been wearing this awesome girls’ Super tee and carrying Super Patrick to the premiere. Those darn germs! Well, good news, she’ll be wearing it tomorrow when we see it at our favorite Times Square theater! I’m sure the SpongeBob fans in the audience will love it!


A few days before the movie premiere we were thrilled to be invited to see a sneak peek of all the new SpongeBob Movie Sponge Out of Water from Nickelodeon. There are some very awesome products that any SpongeBob fan will go crazy for. We loved the app and now have it an play it all the time. This is one of those apps where the moms are taking turns with the kids, know what I mean? Okay, so I’m totally addicted! Mega Bloks sets are awesome! There was so much to see, one product more incredible than the next. There is definitely something for everyone.

You’re Invited To The NYC Screening Of black or white @Blackorwhite #LoveHasNoColor

You’re Invited To The NYC Screening

Of black or white #LoveHasNoColor

By now I am so sure you have seen the commercials on tv for Black or White. Every time the commercial airs I love the movie a little bit more. The hashtag says it all #LoveHasNoColor. Black or White is the story of a grandfather (Academy Award winner Kevin Costner) who is suddenly left to care for his beloved granddaughter.  When her paternal grandmother (Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer) seeks custody with the help of her brother (Anthony Mackie), the little girl is torn between two families who love her deeply.  With the best intentions at heart, both families fight for what they feel is right and are soon forced to confront their true feelings about race, forgiveness, and understanding. Anchored by an all-star cast and based on real events, the movie is a look at two seemingly different worlds, in which nothing is as simple as black or white. In theaters Jan. 30. Rated PG13.
