Are You a Stacey or a Mary Anne?

If you know who I am talking about just from seeing their names, then you are also a big Baby-Sitters Club fan like I am! I grew up reading their books and even now at almost 30 years old, I still enjoy reading their books. I have a little over 150 of their books, though they have published about 230+.

Their series just came out on Netflix and I watched it in two days. They updated it a little to modern times, but kept the essential babysitter club stories. I think they did a great job and really hope they plan to make more seasons.

The babysitters in the series are Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, Stacey, Dawn, Jessi, and Mallory. Later on, they were joined by Abby and Shannon (though only as a part time sitter). All these girls have different personalities and hobbies but manage to be friends.

Growing up, I always wished that I was like Dawn. She was the carefree, health conscious, environmentally friendly, cool girl from California. We do have a few things in common, we are both from California and both try our best to be eco friendly. But she is way cooler than I am. The more I think about it, I am actually Mallory. She’s quiet, enjoys reading and writing, wants to be an author when she grows up, and is the oldest of a very big family. We have all those things in common, only I am the oldest of 6 not 8.

 

Have you watched the series yet? What did you think? Also, who do you identify with most?

Christmas Season

It’s almost Christmas! I love this time of the year. Everything about Christmas season makes me happy. The music, the decorations, the movies, the food, I can go on and on. The only thing I can’t do this year is go ice skating because of the little one in my belly. Oh well, there’s always next year!

One of my favorite things to do is watch Christmas movies. Since I have so much free time, this year I decided to watch a few Christmas movies from Netflix. Here are my favorites. Most of them from 2017-2018, but I did add a few older movies.
1. The Holiday Calendar
2. Christmas Crush
3. A Christmas Prince
4. Christmas Inheritance
5. The Princess Switch
6. A Christmas Prince 2

Non Netflix Movies
1. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
2. Santa Clause 1
3. Santa Clause 2
4. Santa Clause 3
5. It’s a Wonderful Life

Besides watching movies, I also like driving around the cities looking at all the decorations with my family. It’s fun to see how creative people get when it comes to decorating their houses. Some people really go all out. When I buy my own house, my house will definitely be decorated every Christmas season.

Another thing I love is Christmas music. In fact, this year I started listening to Christmas before Thanksgiving! That was only because there was a radio station that started playing music really early. I think they started playing music in the first week of November. Some people complain about the music being played too soon, but it’s very cheerful music and always lifts up my spirit when I hear that music being played. My favorite song is Let it Snow, but I also really like the song Little Drummer Boy.

One thing I really like to do is go to Knott’s Berry Farm. During this time, they call it Knott’s Merry Farm. I love how they decorate everything and all the Christmas themed desserts and food that they have. My family and I also enjoy watching the Christmas shows they have, especially Snoopy on Ice.

Once Upon a Time

A few weeks ago, on September 12, I decided to finally give Once Upon a Time a chance. I said I would watch one episode and if I didn’t like it, I’d stop watching it. At the time, the first five seasons were on Netflix. I got hooked after the first episode and ended up watching the entire 5 seasons (about 110 episodes or so) in 13 days! There was one day when I didn’t have work or school and I was able to watch 12 hours of it!

In fact, in less than a month, I became such a fan of Once upon a Time, that I have bought a few pop toys of characters from the show! I also bought a 2017 calendar and a poster with the characters of Once Upon a Time.

I usually don’t like newer shows, I’m a little bit picky. I didn’t expect to like this show at all, honestly. When I first heard about it, I figured it would be over the top or too childish. After all, it incorporates fairy tales into their storylines. But the writing and acting is so much better than I expected.

My favorite season so far has to be season four, which included a storyline with Anna and Elsa from Frozen, which is one of my all time favorite movies. My favorite characters are Belle, Emma Swan, Hook, and Regina. I think one of my least favorite character has to be Peter Pan.
