10 Government themed Shows on Netflix

 When my son was in first-grade we took him to Washington D.C. We had this idea of enriching his learning firsthand. You can enjoy our trip thoughts/tips here.  After this trip we all realized we enjoyed learning about history and government systems. Since we have been searching for shows to enjoy while we are house bound due to heavy snow storms. Does anyone else enjoy government shows on Netflix?? If you have clicked on this post I think you share this passion with us. Hopefully, you will find these suggestions interesting! If I miss any shows you think we should see, let us know!

Let's escape to Saint Augustine, Florida

The past weekend, Western New York got hit with snow. We knew it was coming but nothing prepares you for the frigid temperatures. They are calling for -21F tomorrow, EEEk! I am already missing sunshine. I am ready to escape the snow to brick laid streets, rich history and beaches! If you are feeling the winter blues this post is just for you. Enjoy my trip to historic Saint Augustine, Florida. It is hands down one of my favorite cities to visit. From historic museums to ghost tours there is truly something for everyone.

Venture over the Bridge of lions and park your car on Cordova Street.
Take an early morning stroll down to Hot Shots Bakery. I completely stumbled upon this little gem on my last visit in town. When I say gem, listen, I mean it! As soon as you walk in the door you are greeted with a friendly welcome, cozy decor and the smell of sugar notes on the tip of your nose.

Dog Safety tips for the Holidays

 The Holiday Season is fast approaching. As we get ready for the celebrations, presents and family coming over we need to remember our furry friends. Though this time can be fun and memorable your pets might have a different view of the Holiday Season. Enjoy some safety tips to keep your dog happy and healthy!
1. Remember to keep your pets in mind when decorating! I found that having glass ornaments never end well in our house. While they are pretty to look at they are not so nice to sweep, vacuum and chase your dog down once they have them. We have completely switched to plastic and or dog friendly homemade ornaments.
2. Did you know holly, mistletoe, and poinsettia plants are poisonous to dogs or cats? I stopped buying them altogether because I don't want to run the risk of our animals getting them. My mother just places them in areas her animals can't reach which is another option.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Icelandic+™. The opinions and text are all mine.
3. Gift them something to encourage a healthy lifestyle. While our little fur-babies stomachs are on the soft side I have to watch what we give them. I want to spoil my pets but I also do not want them getting sick from treats! I recently introduced them to the Icelandic+™ line of products.  While they feel they are getting a treat I can be assured they won't be getting sick from unknown ingredients!

Our thoughts on planning for College

A few months back, I shared our plans for setting our son up with a 529 College Saving Plan. Today, I want to share some of our experiences we had in this process. I figured the Holiday Season would be a great time to share our investment strategies. We all are getting ready for the new year and planning budgets. You might want to also consider including your child's college fund.
