Netflix Shelfies: My Me Time Shows! #StreamTeam

Disclosure: As part of the Netflix Stream Team, I received a welcome gift and a free monthly subscription. However, all opinions are 100% honest and my own. 

I have been a Netflix blogger for almost a year now and I realized when I was trying to think of a theme for my post this month that every single #StreamTeam post I've done features our favorite kids shows. Now don't get me wrong, we absolutely love Netflix for our kids (check out my two favorite Netflix kids shows posts: 5 Dinotrux Activities and How To Train Your Dragon Toothless Hooded Towel) but we also love it for ourselves! As parents, we rarely get time to ourselves to enjoy our favorite shows or a movie, but Netflix allows us the opportunity to watch them at our convenience. We haven't had cable in over 6 years and I don't miss it. This is my view most nights after we finally get both kids to bed:

Netflix asked us to share our Shelfies this month. What is a shelfie exactly? Well like I mentioned, as parents we don't get much time to ourselves. From driving kids to preschool, dance, swimming, and making sure they're dressed and fed, our time to ourselves is pretty minimal. Shelfies are those shows you've been waiting to watch but simply haven't had the time. I'm sad to admit that my Shelfie selection is quite large so I wanted to feature a few of the ones I'm most excited about for you today. 

As I browse Netflix, I add my Shelfies to "My List" because honestly, I'll probably forget about them if I don't. Some are shows I've seen in the past and want to finish, others are some I want to start, and then there are some I want to re-watch from the beginning.  I'm going to be showing my nerdy side in this list, you have been warned!

1. Grey's Anatomy- Oh how I love Grey's. Despite my horror on how the last season ended (I will not spoil it but if you watched you KNOW what I'm talking about. Seriously never saw it coming and I bawled), I still want to watch this whole series over again. It's been years since I've seen the first few seasons that were filled with George goodness.

2. Pawn Stars- I told you I'm nerdy. I love this show. There's something strangely fascinating about all of the odd stuff they get in the shop and as a history major and librarian, I adore all of the historical artifacts and rare books. Fun fact, I've actually Facebook messaged with their rare book expert! I am a few seasons behind on this show and need to get caught up.

3. Property Brothers- Before we bought our house, I never watched HGTV. Now I'm addicted. I was so excited when so many HGTV shows popped up on Netflix and after watching through the House Hunters and Flip or Flop collections, Property Brothers is next on my list! I love getting design inspiration from these shows.

4. Call the Midwife- I've had so many friends recommend this show it was a no brainer for my shelfie list. It's a high priority, just haven't gotten to it yet.

5. The "Secrets of" PBS series- Showing my history nerd status here again. This series features secrets of some of England's most famous castles and homes and I need to watch them. I visited several of these places during my time living in England so I'm excited to revisit them on Netflix.

6. Dance Academy- If you like dance at all, you should watch this Australian show. I've seen the first two seasons but need to watch the 3rd.

I could go on and on with more things I want to watch because there are so many great options. What's on your shelfie list? Check out some of these shows on Netflix now:
