Get Nostaligic with Netflix {Giveaway}

This post was written by the Experimental Mommy.  As a member of the Netflix Stream Team, I received a complimentary subscription however all opinions remain 100% mine.

Last weekend, my entire family gathered for an Easter celebration including gumbo, sack races, egg hunt and ice cream.  To be honest, this is how I have celebrated Easter for as long as I can remember.  With the popularity of the Throwback Thursday meme on Facebook and Twitter, I started searching for childhood Easter pictures to post and came across some real winners.

While our Easter celebrations are classic, I am thankful the above chicken is not.  Really, I have to wonder why my Mom actually let me sit on it’s lap.  That being said, I have been blessed with a ton a great classic childhood memories.

When I look back on my childhood and teenage years, a few classic movies come to mind (you know, movies that make you remember where you saw it, who you were with, what you ate and how you felt).  Now I can relive those moments by watching my classics on Netflix.

What I’m watching:

1. The Muppets Take Manhattan

2. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

3. Say Anything

4. Pretty in Pink

5. Ghostbusters

What movies remind you of your own childhood?  Are you ready to take a trip down Memory Lane?  One of my lucky readers will win a three month subscription to Netflix!  Enter below:
