I love Netflix. I think this comes as no surprise to any who know me well.
But the real reason I love Netflix is that I can watch Gilmore Girls at any time of the day.
I wrote about my love for all things Gilmore earlier this year and how I couldn’t wait to watch the revival some eight months later.
Later is now. LATER IS NOW.
I have to say when I heard there was going to be a revival I was so excited yet also apprehensive.
What if I don’t live to see the revival? OMG PLEASE DON’T STRIKE ME DEAD BEFORE I HAVE THE CHANCE TO SEE THE REVIVAL.
What if it doesn’t live up to my expectations?? Three words: Brady Bunch Reunion.
What if after watching, I end up feeling empty inside, longing for more???
What if my local grocery store runs out of Pop Tarts before November 25th.
You know, legitimate fears.
Last Friday, I received a box in the mail from my friends at Netflix.
I don’t stage these pictures. I just rip through the packages and snap a picture. Netflix knows how lucky they are to have me.
It was filled with so many goodies for my own little Gilmore Girls date night with my Rory.
I have two Rory’s, actually. One isn’t as interested in sitting on the couch with her mommy on a Friday night than the other one because she isn’t like the TV Rory.
My Rory actually goes out on a Friday night with her friends.
But I still have my eight-year-old who is obsessed with Gilmore Girls and food.
So this goodie box was a hit.
See that candle on the right side of the coffee table?
I was so excited to get it in the goodie box and thought, “Gee, how nice of Netflix to send me a GG candle to make the room cozier whilst binge watching our girls!”
Until I read another Stream Team member write a Facebook post about the candle and how each layer of scent represents each season.
Like the upcoming revival.
The candle was wrapped in newspaper and I was kind of surprised that Netflix would wrap something in newspaper.
“Wow, they must be cutting back on the budget over at Netflix” I quietly thought to myself.
Until I saw an Instagram post from another Stream Team member saying that it was Stars Hollow newspaper.
Why do I feel like they are silently judging me?
Apparently, I don’t always pick up on subtle clues.
Listen, my intentions are good and pure.
I have been watching GG for years.
Way before Netflix started streaming it, before Etsy sold mugs and sweatshirts before cookbooks were written about it.
I AM A LIFER, DAMMIT.
So is this girl.
I can’t wait to watch this Friday!!
Why not have a Rory and Lorelai date night at your house?
And I have the perfect invitations for you to send:
Head here to see even more!
Thank you to Netflix for sending me this fun box and thank you eternally for bringing back my Stars Hollow family again.
