Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Have you heard? The mini series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life debuted on Netflix November 25th. I’ve never religiously watched the show, but I would catch on the a few episodes here and there. Netflix just revealed new data that proves TV shows, like Gilmore Girls, help moms and daughters build a stronger relationship. Since I do not have a girl yet, and my mother is far away, I invited my cousin ( total die hard fan) home so we can Netflix and chill this weekend. I am hoping she could explain parts I might have missed when the show was running. What are you up to ? Have you done any shopping on Black Friday?
