My Netflix queue loving it’s life right now. The Christmas holidays allowed more time for catching up on television shows and movies that I’ve been dying to watch for quite some time. I see so many people asking for recommendations on what to watch, so without further adieu …
Here are some great choices that I recommend:
The Duchess –
This is a 2008 film with Kiera Knightly. It literally had me googling the entire time to see if this is actually what happened to this beautiful Duchess of Devonshire! (Disclaimer: Don’t watch this film with your kids.) PS – the Duchess was the great-great-great aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales.

My husband and I watched this movie and absolutely loved it. Another fantastic Netflix original for sure! Jennifer Aniston is absolutely fantastic in her role as a pageant mom. The director, Anne Fletcher, also did 27 Dresses and The Proposal, so if you liked those romantic comedies – give this one a shot too!
Want to read the book first, here’s a link to the best-seller by Julie Murphy. (affliliate)
Dynasty – 2 Seasons, 1 on Netflix & 1 currently airing
This series is the NEW version of the iconic 80s soap opera. It airs in real time on the CW network, but Netflix currently has Season 1. I started watching this with a friend over the summer and we could not stop binge-ing it! I love the cast, the character development, and the plot twists.
Gilmore Girls – 7 Seasons
I know that I’m late to the party, but I completely missed the Gilmore Girls boat in prime time. Talk about a series that I couldn’t stop watching … and honestly, one that I’ll watch again. I saw myself and people that I knew in this series, and fell in love with every character!
Do you love the Gilmore Girls and want to own the complete set on DVD, Amazon carries it! (affiliate)
What are you watching? What can’t I miss? I’d love to hear your recommendations!
We are entering our 8th year of competition dance. Although I’ve touched on a lot of the costs over the years, one of the costs that we don’t often discuss is the cost of being at the conventions when you stay in a hotel. Beyond the obvious hotel charges, the second...read more
I consider myself a fairly intelligent person. Although that might be up for debate with some, I'm definitely no dummy. But, believe me when I tell you, that trying to decipher how to get a driving permit in Texas is the most complicated thing I've ever done. Maybe it...read more
I honestly can't believe that Disney is releasing so many iconic movies in 2019. It seems like a stretch that all of these would be ready at once. I guess I'll just line their pockets a little more than usual because these are all films that I won't be able to miss....read more
Financially 2018 was not the best year we've ever had. Health issues and a hospitalization, on top of aging kids (their activities get more expensive as do their clothes and school needs!), left us scraping by. As I took a hard look at where our money was going, it...read more
As I think back on 2018, I have to say that it was a mixed bag of emotions. There were so many outstanding things that I wouldn’t trade for the world right alongside of some miserable moments as well. I wanted to write a reflection of this year - what I’ve learned and...read more
"She was beautiful, but not like those girls in magazines. She was beautiful for the way she thought. She was beautiful for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was...read more
