TV to Binge Watch During a Snowpocolypse

Hello, and happy Thursday! If you live along the east coast, you may have heard that there's a chance of snow this weekend. Don't worry, there's no reason to panic.

No, really, don't panic. Buy some bread and milk and you'll be totally fine.
Luckily, I did my grocery shopping earlier this week, so I am totally prepared to stay in and eat to my heart's content this weekend. On the menu: beer cheese chili, steaks, orange cinnamon rolls, and any other carbs I can get my hands on.

I'll also be watching lots of Netflix (obviously). We do have a few things we can work on in the nursery and whatnot, but my energy levels are low these days so I'll need lots of breaks. If you're like me and facing a snowstorm too (or maybe you just want to be lazy this weekend...judgement free zone here!), then here are a few of my recommendations on some great shows to binge watch.

TV Shows to Binge Watch

1. Hart of Dixie
An Emmy award winning drama...I'm jk kidding guys! It's got a whole lot of cheesy acting and over-the-top plot lines, but it was one of those mindless shows I just loved watching. Not to mention, the show is over and done with, so no waiting around for new episodes or the next season!

Watch this if you loved: Gossip Girl, The OC
Available on: Netflix

2. Parks and Rec
If you've never watched this show, then I'm sorry for the emptiness that is your life. Okay, so that was a little bit dramatic, but seriously--in the words of my two year old niece, "you're gonna love this." It is both ridiculously heartwarming and ridiculously funny, and it stars Amy Poehler. What more could you want?

Watch this if you loved: The Office, 30 Rock
Available on: Netflix

3. Homeland
Sometimes (all the time), I had to play candy crush to offset the intensity of this show. There's a reason this show gets nominated for awards all the time--it will constantly draw you in and keep you on the edge of your seat, and you'll really get invested in some of the main characters. There is a large, gaping hole in my life where Homeland used to be, and I can't wait for the new season.

Watch this if you loved: 24, Quantico, The Blacklist
Available on: Showtime or DVD (but did you know you can stream Showtime through Amazon?!?! That's what we did--8.99/month, one week free trial, and you can cancel whenever.)

4. The Mindy Project
As much as I love Parks and Rec and the Office, I don't think I have ever laughed so hard as I have when I watch the Mindy Project. Like with any sitcom, it wouldn't work without an amazing cast that makes all the jokes land.

Watch this if you loved: The Office, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock
Available on: Hulu Plus (if you don't have Hulu Plus, then I recommend Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix.)

5. Jessica Jones
This is another super intense show, and is actually kind of violent--I definitely had to  close my eyes like a little kid at least once an episode. However, it's the perfect show to binge watch over a weekend. Right now, there's just one season (which is also frustrating because you will want more), and the storyline moves really quickly.

Watch this if you loved: Any superhero movie but always wanted something a little darker and more complex
Available on: Netflix

That's it, friends! These shows should be enough to get you through any giant blizzard--let's just hope the power doesn't go out.

What would you recommend? (Seriously, please tell me, because we've watched all of the above and have almost finished Making a Murdered. Help! I actually don't have a new show to binge watch when I'll be stuck at home! What a struggle that is so very real!)

All Love,
