Just finally getting caught up on “Better Call Saul”

A couple notes…

  1. I’ve been hammering out episodes of Better Call Saul as fast as I can!
  2. I’ve got a huge trip planned to visit my family in Saint Louis in May!

So before we get to BCS (Better Call Saul) I was wondering if any readers out there have any experience renting a limo service.  If you are from the Saint Louis area I’d love to get your opinion.  I found a company called St. Charles Limos and they look promising, but I honestly can’t really tell who to hire.

I want to go out for a night with my sisters and a limo is the right way to do it!

Anyways…. moving on…

I just watched the first 6 episodes in like the past couple days.  Awesome, awesome, awesome.  Saul is a legend in the making, and it’s even better when they show him hustling in his early years.  Love that dude!

If you can’t tell, I am a huge Breaking Bad fan so Better Call Saul has been on my radar for a while.  Taking care of Tink though is like a full time job so it pretty much has prevented me from watching the show “live”.  I also have the NHL playoffs going on right now so that takes precedence over nearly everything!

I think I feel asleep last night during a great episode.  Saul and his brother are just about to really go after that retirement community.  I really hope this turns out to be a massive case.

What still isn’t apparent to me is whether or not Saul ever becomes a big time lawyer like his brother or if he stays small time most of his life.  I have no idea how far away season 1 of breaking bad is time wise, if that makes sense.

Like is Saul 20 years away?  5 years away?  Does he win this huge case and then fall apart and that’s why he has to represent people like Walt?  I honestly have no idea and I love that!

Gilligan and crew do a masterful job with both of these series.  If you really want to be inspired, check out this youtube clip I stumbled upon the other day…

Talk about awesome!  I love Walter White, and Saul as well!

Anyways, that’s all for now.

 

My favorite website and resources as a single mom

Single moms have to look out for each other and in this post I really want to discuss and give to you my top 10 favorite sites on the Internet today.

Every single mom is looking to save time looking to get entertained, and find the best resources for entertaining content on the Internet. So the following list is going to be my bookmarks that I regularly visit on a regular basis.

 

1. Pinterest 

Probably my favorite site has got to be Pinterest. Pinterest is a collection of basically anything and everything you can ever imagine. They use complex algorithms at all types of cool technology to surface all of these different things that I like and I don’t have to do anything so I just get the best new content in my feed every day I login.  And the coolest part is is the site almost learns about who I am and what I like based on what I click on so that over time I start to get better and better results in my feed.

2.  Wanelo

My second site that I would love to recommend is wanelo. That stands for want need love and basically the site is almost like a Pinterest for products. You can go to the site and discover Products that other people have collected and saved to water called collections. And from those collections you discover products and form your own collections. It’s a great way to discover the coolest trending products from around the world without going to 1 million different sites.

 

3.  Houzz

The third site that I would have to recommend anyone who is a mom take a look at is Houzz.com.   It’s the destination for single moms and homeowners to go and look at what I like to call house porn. There are over 5 million beautiful images on house of stunning interiors from around the world and it’s a great place to go to just relax and look at cool interiors and dream about what your home could become.

 

4.  Thumbtack

My next favorite one and this one is new to the list just starting is thumbtack.com.   It is a great place to go and get information about different services and local service providers in your area. What I like about it is I don’t have to worry about going and finding a service.  I just say I need a plumber and I get a plumber returned right back to me up and five different quotes from reputable companies.

 

5.  Wikipedia

Another one of my favorite sites is Wikipedia. And this one’s pretty obvious and for obvious reasons Wikipedia just flat out no knows everything there is to know about every single topic on the Internet. Remember there will remember those old Britannica Encyclopedia is that you used to have in school will picture those but in an online version and every piece of information is at your fingertips.

 

6. Huff Post

Another one of my favorite sites is the Huffington Post. In the morning there app is my go to app to discover the latest and trending news around the world.

 

7. Youtube

And last my favorite site for video content has got to be YouTube. YouTube is user generated content at its finest and if you couple YouTube with chrome cast for your TV you have basically no more need for cable. You can find basically any type of video and any type of content on YouTube and push it directly to your TV.

I hope this list of sites was exciting and help you discover a couple sites that you’re going to bookmark and enjoy on a regular basis. For me these are my go to sites. All for now.

 

What will we write about?

You’re likely asking 1. Who is tink?  And 2.  Are you actually Tink’s mother?

Well…. Tink is my son, and yes I am his mother.

I will write about anything and everything pop culture, reality television, and just anything that can be helpful to other parents out there.

I’m a single mother, and I live online.  I love everything about the internet age, and I love apps.  I’m all about a flexible, safe, affordable lifestyle that leverages technology.

In terms of pop culture, I am into music, dance, and all types of stuff.  I live in Saint Louis, MO and I am in the process of starting a new business (more on that later).

If you are new to the site, please go head and bookmark our Home Page.   That’ll keep you up to date.  I’ll try to get a RSS feed up shortly.

I plan on writing some serious posts about the state of reality TV.  I (like a lot of single moms) LOVE, love LOVE reality TV in every way.

I think one of the most powerful stories of this past year was the passing of two funny, personable personalities from the MTV family.  I am talking about Diem and Knight.

Knight was a bit more polarizing but I still loved him.  He’s a good guy at heart, although he had his issues, he was a lot of fun to watch.

The guy flat out cracks me up. He loves hockey two which is a bonus because I really love hockey as well.  The death of night was just really, really sad I thought Knight was a great guy.  I really enjoyed watching him over the years and his struggles with Gemmi were also on the forefront of television for years.

Then you have Diem and this one just flat out makes you cry.

Diem was not only a great human being but she was a lover as well. It was clear that her love for CT was true and genuine, and her death was something that just made everyone in the MTV family cry and be upset. I thought CT and the way that he handled himself on the shower was very admirable. When CT left the show and DM left the show it was very clear that something serious was wrong.

The season went on and Sarah ended up winning and I thought that was great as Sarah took some abuse during the show.  It was really unfair and the behavior of Leroy’s ex-girlfriend was just unacceptable.  The way that she was behaving was embarrasing. Obviously she was drunk but that’s no excuse for the way that she was treating people on that show. I’m glad that she was canned. That was a great show.

Some of my other favorite shows that I’m really into right now are Shark Tank on ABC. You absolutely have to love Kevin O’Leary. He’s so funny and how he tells entrepreneurs that they should go back behind the bar and kill their ideas.

I also like Mark Cuban. Mark’s a great guy and it’s clear that he’s been extremely successful and has a lot of knowledge to share. He has become somewhat of a dick the past 2 season though, let’s be honest!

And last you got the lovable Robert Herjevic.   Roberts super super kind and he absolutely does everything he can to be nice and helpful to the entrepreneurs that come onstage.

But Robert doesn’t write a lot of checks. He seems to be very selectful on who he gets into business with and I respect that about the guy. He’s clearly a very tech savvy investor and someone who if I ever started a business that could raise capital would be someone that I would want to raise money from.

Some of the other shows that I will likely cover are the MTV challenge, and Restaurant Startup.

I’ll also likely cover some of the other great shows from the past as in flavor Flav’s flavor of love.

And then obviously people love the bachelor and the bachelorette and I am no different so I’ll probably write about those as well. I’ll try to be as candid as possible and leave nothing back because I want to put my own personal opinions out there. Anyways I think that’s enough for now this post is gone on for a long time. Until tomorrow!
