Netflix is Perfect for A Friendsgiving Food Coma Weekend #StreamTeam

Ah... Thanksgiving. This year that means a 5 day weekend where we're thankful for lazy pajama days, sleeping in, a roaring fire, tons of food, and family down time. We're embracing the food coma, the fabulous, bountiful leftovers, and hangin' with a few favorite friends.

We're usually super busy with events and shows to shoot and cover daily (we hit 8 theatre openings in 7 days last week) and international film crew travel. Hubs will soon be off to Hawaii-LA-San Diego-San Francisco-Atlanta over a 10 day span. And the kids are usually on the run to team gymnastics, tumbling, honors classes, Girl Scouts, ultimate frisbee, darkroom photography, and mentoring younger kids after school. So we treasure the few times our whole family has nowhere to go and can veg and watch Netflix together. This Wednesday through Sunday that's exactly where you'll find us!

ChiIL Mama is elated to be back again for another year as an official Netflix Stream Team blog. Once a month we'll be sharing fun content with you. One of the things we dig about this partnership is the creative flexibility. They send a suggested monthly topic, but ultimately we have the freedom to cover anything we want. This month we're loving their suggestions for "Friendsgiving" and famous/infamous TV and movie friends.

This month we're all about Friendsgiving, a popular take on Thanksgiving when friends come together to celebrate good food and great company. We kept our Thanksgiving feast traditional but low key, with just our immediate family, but we've been enjoying hanging with out of town friends over the long weekend and introducing the kids to some of our favorite buddy movies too, while we nosh on leftovers like pumpkin pie, turkey sandwiches and carbs galore. 

Our real life friends are one of the biggest things we're thankful, and so are some of this month's ‘dynamic duo’ titles to stream on Netflix for a wide range of ages and interests. We've marked some of our favs with an asterisk * below.
