Subscription boxes are popping up like daisies.  Wherever your passions and interests lie, chances are there is a subscription service to fuel your fun.  It’s no secret that I am a wine lover.  Not a connoisseur by any means – just a mom who enjoys a sip of a semi-dry after a long day of mommy duties.  Discovering Club W and their personalized wine delivery service was a dream come true.  I waited no time at all to get started exploring their wine options.

Club W offers a little quiz asking questions about how you like your coffee, salt, citrus and more to build some initial recommendations for you – or you can opt to explore on your own.  I enjoyed taking the quiz and also had a pretty good idea of what I was looking for (semi-dry, no oak).  I selected 2 chardonnays, a rose, and a white blend.

My wine arrived quickly (within a week) and the box is well made with a sturdy and convenient handle on one side.   Because it’s alcohol, someone 21+ must sign for the package when it’s delivered, so it’s recommended that you ship to work if someone is not typically home during the day.  I love that so much thought went into the box it’s shipped in.  It’d be easy and convenient to receive it at work and transport it home.  Without that handle, I know I’d be clumsily trying to carry the box through the parking lot and something bad would likely happen (lol).

All my wine arrived safe and sound, and I uncorked bottle #1 last week, and bottle #2 this weekend!  I was able to go back into my account on Club W and rate the wines (I definitely preferred one over the other) and Club W will take my ratings into consideration as they continue to make recommendations for me!  I also love that each wine comes with an information card which includes a recipe it pairs well with, which will help me when I am entertaining.

Getting wine delivered to your door is quite possibly the best thing ever – and I am so glad I gave Club W a try!  I am looking forward to trying new wines and finding a couple favorites to order by the case and always keep on hand, too!  They have a great promotion going on now – you can save $20 off your first order!  Plus, if you order 4 or more bottles you receive free shipping!  And, they have great referral perks too – so after you try it, you can share your referral link with your friends and you both will benefit from discounts!

Fuller House: Is it Family-Friendly?

A review & Answering-

When ever I may review a movie, television show, or something similar I will try my best not to post any major spoilers that will negatively impact the way in which you enjoy the show… but, sometimes I may reference examples to support my opinions. Please read with your own discretion.

I grew up watching Full House as a part of the TGIF lineup.  My whole family looked forward to it, and we literally watched the cast grow up on the show.  Throughout my adult years I would catch reruns here and there and find comfort in enjoying the family-friendly sitcom that I remembered from my childhood.  When I heard that there would be a new series I was excited – and when I heard it would be a Netflix Original I was even more excited!

My husband and I have determined that Netflix really knows what they are doing.  We thoroughly enjoy all the Netflix Original shows they produce and love having the ability to binge watch a series.  Fuller House was no exception – we LOVED it!

The first episode is a little longer than the others, because they take time to introduce all the characters and fill in the gaps as to what they have been doing since we last saw them.   I enjoyed the ways in which the producers developed the stories of my favorite characters, and laughed out loud when the original cast broke their acting for a moment after a joke directed at Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (who played Michelle) and opted not to be involved with the new series.  It was also fun to meet the new cast members, most notably DJ’s children and Kimmy’s daughter.  It’s clear to me that DJ’s son Max will continue to provide the comic relief (similar to Michelle in Full House) – he is cute and funny, and probably my favorite character so far!

The nostalgia is “on fleek” – everything from the iconic couch and our favorite pup (well, Comet Junior Junior), down to the phrases we know and love (Have mercyHow rude… and You got it dude!”).  One of my favorite nostalgic moments was when they split the screen for one scene in which the main characters sing the Flinstone’s theme song to DJ’s baby – perfectly recreated from an original scene from the 90s where the same characters sung to Michelle – and both scenes were shown concurrently.

They also have done an outstanding job of modernizing the show.  There are a lot of references and jokes tied into current events: including Donald Trump, Cameron Bure’s role on The View, and jokes tied to modern day lingo (like the above mentioned “on fleek”).   I loved watching the jokes of the past meet the jokes of today.  The series also includes cameo appearances from current icons like singer Macy Gray, San Francisco Giants baseball player Hunter Pence, and the Chmerkovskiy brothers from Dancing with the Stars.

We almost always watch new shows (Fuller House included) after the kids go to bed – not because we don’t want them to see it, but because we really want to watch and enjoy it the first time around (without distractions from the kids).  It also gives us an opportunity to screen the show to determine if it’s appropriate for the kids.  The show is written for those of us who grew up with Full House, and the focus is slightly more adult than Full House was.  In Fuller House you will hear words like “sexy,” references to butts and boobs, etc.  The show walks a fine line – one that my husband and I are personally comfortable allowing our children to watch, but I also know many parents who felt it was inappropriate for their child’s eyes.  Having said that, there are many instances when I watch a movie or TV show that I enjoyed as a child and when I see it through my “mommy goggles” I am astonished at some of the innuendos and content – but children really are ignorant to many of those hidden messages – it’s entirely possible that this is one of those instances.

Overall I think Fuller House does an amazing job modernizing the sitcom feel I remember from Full House.  I laughed, I cried, and I thoroughly enjoyed every episode of Fuller House – as did my 8 year old.  I am thrilled to hear that they WILL be producing a second season!

 

Have you watched Fuller House?  I’d love to hear your opinion – and just for fun, are you Team Steve?  Or Team Matt?
