@Netflix rolls out special edition summer family site, catch up on summer watching with this fab list! #ad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Netflix.

We're in the middle of summer, and it's starting to come into the home stretch. You know, not quite new anymore. Sleeping in late, getting tired of having nothing to do, or worse- nothing to watch on television?

Being stuck at home with all this rain (if you live on the eastern side of the good old USA, we've had some Torrential downpour in the South). While I am not directly on the coast (anymore) I still live in Central Alabama, and Tropical Storm Chantal has been soaking the Atlantic coast for a bit, plus even before HER we had sooo much rain and tornadoes and thunderstorms. Lightning was quaking and thunder was literally shaking the floor of the houses. So with all that rain night and day, the kids have been stuck inside a bit more than they are used to. It can make your role as a parent become more challenging during the summer months, right?

When you're stuck at home during the summer, not wanting to go out in either the pouring rain, or the humid days you can use streaming Netflix (like my family does) to make the summer months less challenging.

 I like that these movies on the newly- launched Family Movie List inspire creativity and bring my family closer together, giving us some fab summer memories. The other day, we watched Tinkerbell, (its been a while since it came out, so also a bit since my eldest has seen it and she wanted to watch it) she suggested that we paint our nails glittery while we watched it. Since I'm a little inattentive to cartoon kids movies (even though I pretend to be, I go a little ADD...) it's the perfect task to keep me occupied and hands busy while they watch. Then after the movie they (my 8 and 3 yr old girls) decided to get their Tinkerbell figurines out and play with their Barbies, playing fairies... they even got out their fairy wings too!

 I feel I should also point out the categories are always spot-on too. Not your run of the mill genres, but more specific. My favorite category to scroll through is always "Catch-Up TV for Busy Parents". Because I sometimes don't know what to watch, but I love how they suggest and seem to know exactly what shows are good, that I would actually like.

 I never experience any problems with my Netflix at home, and I love how regularly this brand puts new movies on their queue for us to watch, all while bringing it us LOADS cheaper than cable. Actually, we don't have cable- and haven't for a while. I just got tired of paying that much to only watch a few channels and have no control over whats is actually on. I got tired of flipping for 100$ a month. But perhaps one day we will turn it back on- but I am enjoying Netflix for now and have been for a while.

You should definitely check out the curated rows/lists from The best part is, even though it will (of course) ask you to sign up (and you should!) you should know that the new page is available for both members and non-members! Just scroll down underneath the signup box, and it's all there.

I love that Netflix has things my girls haven't seen that is an oldie but goodie, like Jem and the Holograms!!! I used to LOVE to watch that cartoon/show when I was my eldest's age, and it is something nice to have on for background noise, and I find myself singing along.

Netflix is also green for the environment and your wallet, to keep you from buying new movies (or older ones) and that you don't leave your house  & spend your money- making it also economical and eco-friendly. :-) Also, I love saving my time standing in line to rent a movie from a machine and then trying to get it back on time. That's TWO trips. Not to mention if I DON'T return it on time, I have to pay for another day!! is a new destination designed to meet your family’s summertime entertainment needs. On, parents can find lists of movies and TV shows for all kinds of special summer moments. Visit for more information on the best ways to stream as well as videos from families using Netflix.
