Mommy Monday

I come from a long line of TV lovers. As a kid, one of the ways we would bond as a family would be to watch Home Improvement, China Beach, or something on ABC’s TGIF. Needless to say, I heart TV.

 

I used to watch all kinds of shows and would stay up-to-date on all the episodes. I’d chat with friends and coworkers about theories and things I wished the writers would make happen.

 

Then, I had a kid…and my show-watching changed. A LOT.

Now, instead of humming the theme song to New Girl, I’m sing the opening to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood (won’t you ride along with me; ride along!). Now, instead of talking about what happened on Scandal, I talk about who guest starred on Sesame Street.

 

But with guest stars like this, can you blame me?

I won’t lie though; sometimes the children’s shows are pretty good! I get sucked in and two hours later, I have nothing to show for my life except an indention in my recliner the shape of my butt.

What about you? Have you found yourself watching Mickey Mouse Club House over Game of Thrones? 

Fan Girl Thursday

I know its not Friday, but who says we can’t fangirl a day early?

This has been a great week of “squee”-worthy finds from all over the interwebs!

I used to have TEN TV shows I watched. TEN. A few were cancelled and few are on hiatus until the fall. Which means there’s an open slot of television time for this white girl. And I think I know what I’m going to fill it with!

This fall, Fox is running a prequel to my favorite fictional city (aside from Minas Tirith)–Gotham Freaking City. The series titled–what else?–Gotham follows a young detective named Jim Gordon as he tries to rid the streets of Bruce Wayne’s hometown before the caped crusader flew into existence. I think it looks really good:

 

The Amazing Spiderman 2 debuted last weekend (I didn’t see it…did you?) meaning that Emma Stone and her real–and reel (see what I did there?)–life boyfriend Andrew Garfield have been hitting up the late night circuit, promoting the new flick. Andrew stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (sans tights) to showcase one of his hidden talents:

 

I have already received about 10 invitations to weddings this summer. Although sadly, none have had this awesome of an invite. I seriously think Huff the Hubs and I need to redo our wedding just so we can do this! (Click the link for more)

Now that we’re living with my sister, our evenings are filled with Oreos, wine, and lots of laughing at fart jokes. I think its time to add a little refinery to our household. And I’m pretty sure I’ve found JUST the thing!

pride and predjudice board game

Its Pride and Prejudice: The Board Game! Bingley’s the name and marriage is the game! Here’s the way to win: Elizabeth and Darcy, Jane and Bingley, Lydia and Wickham or Charlotte and Mr. Collins–pick one of four couples from the novel and maneuver them separately or together through town and countryside.  Be the first to collect all game tokens, then race to the Parish Church to marry and win the game!”

 

My sister and I made Huff the Hubs watch Pitch Perfect the other night, which has made me a little obsessed with acapella groups. So when I saw this on Pinterest, of course I HAD to repin. And watch. Seven times.
