Netflix Stream Team April’s Pick- Rev Run’s Renovation

I’m a member of the Netflix Stream Team. The opinions in this post are my very own.

This month I watched a wide variety of movies and shows on Netflix.  I started off searching for Apocalyptic movies and began the month with, Left Behind.  After watching, Left Behind I watched a couple episodes of, Revelation Road which is another Apocalyptic style show.  However, so far there are only two episodes on Netflix and I was certainly hoping to see more after watching the first two, but that was all they had on there so far.

*Drum rolllllllllllllll*

This months Stream Team Pick!  Rev Run’s Renovation.  When this was airing on television I’d always miss it.  I did happen to catch a couple episodes, one when they renovated their daughter Mylie’s room and another that I can’t think of at the time.  Rev Run’s Renovation is my pick of the month because this was a binge show for me.  One that I curled up with some Butter Pecan ice cream and let each episode play one after the other.

A few years ago when, Run’s House was on T.V I’d watch episode after episode and repeat.  Loved the show!  I Enjoyed watching their family and any show that I can watch with my kids is a win win.  So, I was happy to find out that they had another show. If you’re anything like me and enjoy home improvement shows, you’d enjoy this.  Run and his wife Justine are in the process of renovating their home, room by room.  Not only do you get a chance to see them handle their disagreements over the different projects, but you also get to see the renovation process.I totally love the fact that they’re not buying a new home, but renovating what they have.  Although I know these project budgets are nothing to sneeze at.

What have you checked out on Netflix this month?  The weather is beginning to warm up in many areas and do you have a different appetite for a different type of movie during warmer months?  I seem to lean more toward renovation and garden renovation type shows in the summer months and romantic, chick flick type of movies during the winter.

Fuller House on Netflix – Stream Team

I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team. Opinions are my very own.

Don’t you just love reminiscing on the television shows you watched as a child? I definitely do, and I love when Netflix brings back the flash of the past.

Fuller House aired on Netflix this Friday. I cuddled up with my little New York and let the episodes roll.

Now, the first 5 minutes I spotted Pyrex and before the show was over I spotted three different Pyrex bowls. Alright, alright, I’ll stay focused.

fuller house

If you were around in the old days… 1987ish. You’d remember the television show Full House. Danny Tanner, his brother in law and his friend helps Danny raise his three daughter’s after his wife died in a car accident.

The show has returned and now everyone is grown up and the second generation has all moved back into the Tanner house. Including DJ’s friend and her daughter. Fuller House is a funny show and I enjoyed the episodes I’ve watched so far. I was glad that I sat down to watch them first before watching them with my youngest daughter because there was alot of inappropriate content for kids. I’d definitely advise parents to watch it alone first so that they can make the proper judgement call before watching it with any of your young children.

Although I was disappointed that Fuller House wasn’t a family show, I was able to enjoy plenty  laughs with the exception of the sexual innuendos and some other content I believe, if left out, the show would have received 5 stars from me. My personal opinion is… If, a television show has children under age, there shouldn’t be any sexual content included at all.  So, have you checked out Fuller House yet on Netflix and if so, how do you compare it from the original shows?

January’s Netflix #StreamTeam Picks – October Baby

I’m writing this post because I’m a member of the Netflix StreamTeam however, the opinions are my very own.

What I watched

This month started off with me watching the movie, October Baby. Years ago I read a book which was similar to this very topic, abortion. Based on your views on the topic of abortion, you may be swayed one way or the other.  This month was also the 43rd Anniversary of Roe vs Wade so, I also thought it was appropriate for the month.

In October Baby a young lady, Hannah sets out to find her biological parents and discovers something that would totally shock you. As I said depending on your views on the topic will also be a deciding factor on if tissue will be needed. No matter what our beliefs are on the subject of abortion what we can all take away from this is how much we can find out about ourselves by being willing to take a journey in our past to benefit our future.

What Jala Watched

My youngest daughter Loves NETFLIX!!!! One of the reasons I enjoy it and feel a bit safe as a parent,  is because of the lack of inappropriate commercials. This month she indulged in the episodes of Alpha and Omega and has said she’s moved on to something else, but she can’t remember what that something else is…stay tuned.

Watching

Hubby and I just began the series, Secrets of the Bible.  The first episode was on finding the Ark of The Covenant.  With some things shared on the Ark, I’ve had to revisit the scripture, do an in depth study and I’m going to re-watch the episode again.  There was so much to digest in the research shared on finding the Ark  of the Covenant that I know reading the scriptures and watching again would help me gain more clarity. I can be a bit of a skeptic lol.

So, that’s just a little of what we’ve been watching this month on Netflix.  What have you been watching this month on Netflix?

December Netflix StreamTeam Binge

I’m writing this post because I am a Netflix StreamTeam member. Opinions are my very own.

The month of December, I Netflix Binged. Indulged in some good ole movies.

Yes I did.

Not only did I binge, but my kids have been binging too. My oldest daughter is home and my youngest has hijacked the television and has made them watch every flashback movie under the sun. My youngest has paid my oldest back for every time I had to hear Shark Boy and Lava girl, Spy Kids and every other movie her and my son watched over a million times.

One thing I love about the movies my two oldest kids grew up on, is that they have been given new life with my youngest. These old movies appear as though they’ve just hit the box office in the eyes of my youngest. So, this holiday break has been filled with some oldies, but goodies in my house.

Now, I think these colder months allow me to enjoy a bit more television entertainment because I’m not outside as much. No more garden duties and some days it’s just toooo darn cold to go outside! The last movie I watched in December was, Raising Izzie. I almost… almost went into a really, really ugly cry, but I grabbed some tissue.

I’d consider Raising Izzie a sorta, kinda family movie. That’s depending on the sensitivity of the children in your family. My two oldest would handle this fine, but my youngest I was a bit concerned. She’s going through that emotional phase now, so maybe she’ll have to see this at a later date. Raising Izzie is a story of the hope of adoption after much tragedy in the life of two young girls. Not only was the adoption of these girls a blessing for them, but was also hope to a couple that weren’t able to have children.

The month of December was definitely not only a month of binging on food, but enjoying some great movies too. What’s your Netflix pick of the month?

FAMILY FUN Vintage Style – YOU SANK MY BATTLESHIP!

You Sank My Battleship

I promise to not start “a thing” of buying vintage games…. or not! Hubby and I stopped in a thrift store this past week and while I was paying for my little treasure he came across this game and said, “remember this?”

At a little over a couple dollars I said let’s get it. Actually we have began to build on our board games to play with the kids on family night and any other night. We’ve been playing the game since we brought it home and enjoying it so much. I was so excited to see that Jala understood the strategy as well as figuring out where my ships were after she hit it the first time. Before realizing she understood the strategy I told her that I was about to kick her butt.

her response…

You’re boasting.

s’cuse me, miss?

Just finished kicking my son’s butt in a game of Battleship. Haha!!! I better watch out because Jala will say I’m boasting.

Do you remember the game of Battleship and or are you still playing it now?
