Date Night with Mom (and the Gilmore Girls) + Netflix Subscription Giveaway

Like so many others in this world, I am a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan.  I own all the seasons on DVD and have watched the series the entire way through 5 times! When I found out that there would be a revival, I was ecstatic!

As soon as I found out the release date, I started a countdown. I didn't make any plans for that day because I knew I would want to watch it immediately. I was thrilled when I received the ultimate Gilmore Girls binge-watching Date Night with Mom kit from Netflix!


Netflix sent us everything we would need for our binge watching session! Although it was a kit for me and Lexie, Grant shared in the fun, too. See, once upon a time my husband hated Gilmore Girls. He incessantly made fun of me for liking it. But a 5 day stay in the hospital, while recovering from a appendectomy, quickly changed his mind! He was secretly almost as excited as I was about the revival!

This past Friday, the world stood still as we watched all 6+ hours of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix. We did not race to the stores to score great deals like everyone else. We just woke up early, stayed in our pajamas, curled up on the couch with coffee and junk food and immersed ourselves in Stars Hollow.

We lit our binge watching candle before we started and it burned through Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. We snacked on Red Vines, popcorn and Pop Tart biscotti. We played trivia during bathroom breaks. We stayed warm under that soft, cozy blanket. And this sleep deprived mama enjoyed bowls of coffee in my now beloved Luke's Diner mug!

I won't give any spoilers!  I will just say that I absolutely loved it. I laughed and cried my way through the entire 6+ hours and found myself wanting more when it ended! From Friday Night Dinners to Kirk's antics to town meetings to the signature fast-paced banter, I lost myself in the world of Stars Hollow. It was so good that I'm going to have to watch it again and keep my fingers crossed that they choose to do more!!!  (Please, Netflix. PLEASE?!?) And just for the record, I will always be #TeamLogan!

Thanks to Netflix and Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, it was the best Black Friday EVER!

  1. I'm 3 episodes in and really enjoying it. I've missed the silly banter and relationships. So fun and love that your girls watched with you.

  2. So I have never watched an episode of Gilmore Girls (tragic I know) and I REALLY want to, but the only time I could watch it would be with my girls around. You watching it with yours makes me wonder if I should give it a try. I've been worried to.... hhhhmmmmm. Maybe we'll do that today (after school of course ;)).

  3. I spent Friday the exact same way with my sister! I absolutely loved it, too! I may already be watching it all again :)

  4. B and I are currently working our way through the original seasons as I never watched it when I was younger. We're almost done with season one and I'm loving it so far... I can't wait to see the new ones!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
