Top Netflix Picks

Hey guys,,

This summer I’ve completely embraced the lazy summer vibes, and spent a lot of my mornings cuddled up with my 5 yo bff watching Netflix.  Normally I don’t allow a lot of tv. Especially in the summer when we can go out side all day.  I’ve been so relaxed with the T.V. that our morning routine was cuddle up and watch a movie, and eat breakfast on the couch.  Then when I had switched up our routine because our afternoon nap was no longer working out and she started taking nap time to fist thing in the morning.  We would then rest up and watch a movie after lunch time,  if we weren’t at the beach which we didn’t get to got to as much as I’d have liked. 

Since I’d spent such a productive summer I thought that I would share with you our Top 5 Netflix picks.  The movies that we watched over and over, and the tv shows that we binged on. You never sit down to watch just one episode on Netflix do you? It’s always one more. Right? or is that just me. Any way…

The First thing we started watching was H20: Just Add Water.  I’ve been obsessed with mermaids lately, so when Sharon asked to watch it I was all for it. She actually wanted the Netflix cartoon version but I talked her out of it.  The show follows three teenage girls who through a magic moon pool become mermaids when ever they get wet.  It’s an older show, I think it was on in 2006, and was created for probably 10-14 year olds as there is a bit of romance, and drama.  Nothing too heavy though, it’s mostly the girls trying to get a hang of their newly found powers, and trying to live a normal life despite their tales that appear when they’re too close to water. Magic, Mermaids, I mean what else do you need. I’ve also found that two of the girls in this show, are also in another series that I watch The Vampire Diaries, and the spin off The Originals. 

The Other show we were bingeing on is The Littlest Pet Shop.  I don’t love Cartoons but Sharon loves it, so I let her watch it.  In this cartoon, a teen girl moves in an apartment above a pet shop and discovers she can talk to and understand the animals.  Most of the show is about the silly situations the animals get themselves into, or Blythe having to deal with mean girls the biscuit twins, or her spending time with her friends,  Over all it’s a good hearted show.

So Movies, When ever I let them choose what movie to watch its one of three. When I choose it’s an old Disney film of course.  The first one that they really got into was Trolls.  I mean we get to go with the Optimistic Princess Poppy, and the grumpy Branch on an adventure to save the trolls from the burgen. Who are trying to eat the trolls, but that’s only because its only way to be happy.  I love the soundtrack to this film too, we listen to it all of the time.


The next movie they got hooked on was Moana.  Ok seriously who hasn’t seen Moana. The daughter of the Island Chief sailing across the ocean to save her people.  This movie is so good. I didn’t mind watching it everyday.  Like trolls this has an amazing soundtrack, I love the song Shiny.  Such a great movie.

The last movie is one we just started watching all of the time. Sing, because who wouldn’t want to watch a cartoon animal version of American Idol.  In order to save his theater Buster Moon sets up a singing competition.  Again this movie has some great songs.  We only really love a few from the movie.  Sharon loves I’m Still Standing She will stop what ever she’s doing and start dancing.  which is great when she’s being a bit crazy.  Then we all like Set it all Free, and other one that will stop the kids from what they’re doing and they start dancing. It’s great to have songs that will stop the kids in their tracks, and get them dancing. Weather they’re being way to hyper, or too whiney  for the sake of your sanity find them a song they can’t get enough of.

So those were the kids, and my Top 5 Netflix Picks.  However when the kids go home, and I get the T.V. my Favorite thing to watch this summer was Supernatural.  I tried watching it a few years ago, but it may have gotten to be too scary so I turned it off.  Yes I am that much of a baby. Then this summer I turned it back on again and made it through all 12 seasons, It’s so good!  I also re-watched/caught up on Reign, and The Originals.

I love Netflix.  It’s literally the best thing ever invented! What are you currently Bingeing on Netflix? I need to know what to put on next…  Have you seen any of these shows??? what did you think of them?

    I have watched, Trolls, Moana, and Sing!… I thought Sing was hilarious! Trolls has been watched 5 times now in the past 2 weeks here. The soundtrack never gets old. My kids are wanting to watch Moana again. Can’t wait!
