The winner Netflix. Amazon Prime comes in a very close 2nd.
If I actually started out with Amazon Prime, I probably would have that today. But since I’m hooked on Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, there’s no way I could let go of Netflix now. Eventually, I’d love to get Amazon Prime. We are just on extreme budget mode lately. Maybe, later in the year or next year. Amazon Prime is actually less than Netflix. $79/year vs. $7.99/month, but it’s a lot cheaper than getting cable.
For now, we’ve actually been living with less TV. We’ve been spending more quality family time, then just zoning out on TV.
Here’s my heart of the day.

It’s Ash Wednesday and it’s the beginning of Lent. We’re Catholic, but we haven’t been practicing much since the Little Lady was baptized back in April of last year. I think we have just been lazy about getting up and going to church. It’s just an ordeal with the 3 kids. Maybe as they get older, we’ll go back.
But in the spirit of Lent, I’m hoping to renew and begin practicing my faith again. I’ve already begun saying prayers before I go to bed. It’s helped during some very challenging times and I believe that God has answered a prayer or two already. I’m ready to reconnect with my spiritual self and in doing so am giving up a few of things I heart.
1. I’m giving up TARGET! This is going to be hard. I HEART TARGET!
2. I’m not taking my phone with me to bed. It’s usually the first thing I check in the morning and the last thing I check before I go to bed. It’s a sickness. I’m just going to put it away in my purse before I go to sleep. I REALLY HEART MY IPHONE!
3. I’m giving up online shopping. No more online deals and no more Scholastic Book orders. We have enough stuff.
I also ran across the 40 Bags in 40 Days 2014 Decluttering Challenge on Facebook. I’ve been purging since the beginning of the year, but I think this will give me that push to finally finish going through the entire house.
I hope my 40 day journey will bring more spirituality and a lot less clutter (distractions) to our lives.
I mean Idina Menzel. I think she sang better here, than at the Oscars. She seemed a bit nervous.
I heart these collaborations.

I started a new job at my company today, same department, just different role. It was pretty overwhelming and I barely kept my head above water… but I can tell I’m going to like it more than what I use to do. The best part of it is that I’m in an office. It’s so peaceful and has a great window. I’m just taking it all in and enjoying the newness of it all.
I heart new experiences and welcome the changes they bring.
My heart of the day. Mr. C in all his newness.

Of course, I have to post this. And yes, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is basically his old show. Who doesn’t heart Justin Timberlake?
Oh, and while we’re at it…
I heart Jimmy Fallon!!
No matter who wins, it’s always so magical to see which stars are attending, what they are wearing, who they arrive with. This was the first time we were able to watch with the kids. We waited all night to see Idina Menzel perform this song.
If you have kids, I’m sure you’ve been hearing this song over and over. And here’s Demi Lovato‘s version.
Here are some fashions I heart.
Of course, the lovely Jennifer Lawrence. Did you see her trip again?
And Amy Adams, so lovely in navy.
I thought Jennifer Garner looked stunning! She’s a mother of 3, just like me! Heart her!
It looks like nude, beige, blush was the color of the night. I just heart Cate Blanchett. She is such the movie star. She’s talented and gorgeous, and I had no clue she has 3 sons. Congrats on her for winning best actress!
I can’t believe I watched the whole thing. I thought Ellen did a great job. She even fed the crowd with pizza.
By far, my favorite thing was this group selfie.
I heart the show this year. It was fun and great to watch with the kids!
