Summer Time Adventure Movies with Netflix #StreamTeam

29th August 2014

Summer is almost over.

I don’t know about you but I am tired. As a stay-at-home mom, I’ve been with my kids EVERY SINGLE DAY for the ENTIRE SUMMER BREAK.

We took road trips, we worked on our new house, we swam every day, we played, we bbq’d, we laughed, we cried, and we (me) hid in the bathroom for quiet time whenever possible.

I’m DONE.

We also had lots of lazy days and nights at home, which I love since I’m a homebody/mommy hermit.

We had many, many movie nights and many of those movies we streamed from Netflix. Have I mentioned my love for Netflix? Yes I have, but just to reinforce the point – I love me some Netflix.

With small kids, we’ve seen (been forced to watch) every possible animated movie ever released, so whenever possible, we try to expose them to something else.

Among the flicks we watched, we saw Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and National Treasure, or as my kids refer to them, The bald guy Movie and The Nicholas Cage movie.

We tend to stick to funny movies and adventure flicks with the kids, so these were well received. Besides, how can you not enjoy classic Nicholas Cage???? You can’t. You just can’t. Don’t even bother trying.

Yes, the story lines might be a tad ridiculous and unbelievable but that’s what movies are all about. Also, Nicholas Cage can do no wrong  (if you don’t believe me, just watch Face/Off or ConAir).

If you need an adventurous movie night with the family, try one of these flicks. Then again, if you have Netflix, your options are endless. If you don’t have it yet, it’s the best $9/month you’ll ever spend.

Alone Time With Netflix #StreamTeam

30th June 2014

Netflix_StreamTeam_BadgeOh how I adore my alone time with Netflix.

It really doesn’t take much to make me happy after the kids are in bed – a iced latte, pyjamas, many pillows and my Netflix. I love it so much, and I’m ok with that. I like that I can relax in bed, and watch some great tv shows, and binge watch at my leisure.

Of course, I have my favourites:

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK – I may have watched the new season over a two day period. Fantastic second season and excited to see Season Three.

HAPPY ENDINGS – This one is an old one, but whenever I need a laugh, every episode makes me howl. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve watched them but it’s my go to happy place show.

THE KILLING – SO good. So sad it’s almost over but crazy excited about Season four coming up in July!!!

SUITS – Fantastic show – witty, smart, and full of obscenely attractive people. Love it.

I also have a very long list of shows that I have yet to watch that are conveniently on Netflix. I LOVE that I don’t have to wait a week to see the next show – seriously, binge watching is where it’s at.

I can’t wait to watch:

SHERLOCK – My cousin in Toronto and I are constantly texting each other about what we’re watching (we are both addicted to really bad reality tv) and she RAVES about this show. I’ve only heard great things so it’s number one on the list.

Veronica Mars –  I adore Kristen Bell, so I’ve always been curious about this show.

The Good Wife – Oh, Mr. Big, you had me at hello.

Bates Motel – I’d love to see this but I’m a total wimp so, it’s been on the watch list with Dexter for a while now.

I love Netflix – did I say that already? Seriously, it’s worth every penny.

Do you have Netflix? What are your favorite shows to binge watch???

The Netflix Stream Team #StreamTeam

22nd April 2014

It’s been ages since I last blogged thanks mainly to the big house move, but I’m back. Hi. I’ve missed you.

I’m excited that my first post back is all about Netflix and becoming a member of the Netflix Stream Team. I am a huge fan of Netflix, as is the husband and the kids. We watch it all the time, and I’m pretty sure there isn’t a day that goes by that someone isn’t watching something on Netflix. All the documentaries and tv shows and obviously, movies – it’s just too good. So when the invite came to join the Stream Team, it was a definitely a no brainer.

Netflix really comes in handy at our house on Friday nights in particular. Friday nights are our family movie nights, where the entire family sits down to enjoy a flick. Since we have Netflix set up on every tv in the house, as well as every iPad, iPod and iPhone (we are a tad obsessed), choosing something to watch on Netflix is super easy! Personally, I love that there are options for both my seven year old daughter, and the ten year old who has now entered the ‘boring, not cool, that’s for babies’ stage of life.

With school breaks like March Break or even just a long weekend like we just enjoyed, we are always able to access and watch some great shows and movies, thanks to good old Netflix.

doctor who

My ten year old is currently OBSESSED with Doctor Who, and he’s slowly made his way through almost every episode. In fact, the entire family is hooked at this point. It’s great that he can access almost every episode of the show so easily, which saves me from having to buy the DVDs.

my little pony

The seven year old is all about My Little Pony and I could probably recite some of the episodes if asked. I mean she, SHE could recite the episodes if asked. I’m a grown woman – I don’t watch My Little Pony.

Ahem.

There are so many great movies available to watch as well – some of our favorites, that we’ve watched a few times include:

GULLIVER’S TRAVELS, TURBO, and my personal favorite, HUGO!

All it takes is some popcorn and cold beverages, Netflix and a Friday night, and you’re set to enjoy a lovely evening with your brood.

ENJOY!!
