Home sweet home

Two whole weeks! I just caught up on two weeks worth of DVR-ed shows... OMG I don't even know where to start! maybe I'll just start with bullets, I won't even attempt to hit on our trip home, that will take a whole other post! Maybe in the same week! I know you won't even know what to do with yourself!
Real Housewives of New York City - I don't even get Kelly. At all. Sometimes she talks and I just can't even listen! Why do I even watch this trash? She just talks and talks and talks and nothing coming out of her mouth makes any sense what so ever! I just don't get it, it has to be staged, no one can really be that stupid. Well lucky for Luke that show is over!
The Bachelorette - I know I'm so behind BUT I'm pretty sure that ABC read my blog, because a certain girl's hair is starting to look a little better. It actually looks like Ali is brushing her hair. Can we talk about Kasey - how weird is he? Their date in NYC was so awkward, that whole "here's my heart, jump in and stay a while" - how creepy. And the tattoo, that was a bit drastic. If I have to hear one more time how he wants to "protect and guard her heart" I think I'll throw something at the TV and that might just make the hubs a little angry. So was I glad when Kasey was left all alone on a big block of ice in Iceland, yes I was. I do happen to be team Roberto and team Kirk, oh yeah and team Chris L. I would be team Frank, but I've heard the spoilers about an ex-girlfriend and wanting to leave the show but the producers wouldn't let him leave so I know there's no hope down that alley (no pun intended). This weeks Turkey episode - how dramatic. Does no one remember Wes?? Of course the ABC producers are going to keep reproducing this scenario. And then to quote Frank, and he's going to turn out looking like a bad guy too. No wonder Jake and Vienna didn't last, this show is for suckers like me. It worked for Trista and Ryan. I just noticed how they make the guys put tape over their hats  to cover what brand it is. Just a little tidbit.
Real Housewives of New Jersey - Dina left... and my DVR didn't record it, so I have no idea why. I'll just have to keep a watch. I've had some issues with the DVR not recording all my shows. Not the end of the world I'm sure, but I feel so behind.Who is Danielle? I guess all these shows have to have a crazy, and she's the crazy here. In my semester of psychology, I saw a lot of crazies, and I think that I have enough knowledge to diagnose this lady with paranoia. She's paranoid, thinking everyone is out to get her. I had a patient like her at Chattahoochee. AND she said herself that no one says hello to a psychopath... so she knows she's crazy! I think they have mental institutions in New Jersey, I think someone needs to check herself in.
Pretty Little Liars - a new show on ABC family that I've added to my summer shows. It comes on at the same time Glee used to, so it's my replacement. They talked about To Kill A Mockingbird last night, I don't remember anything about that book. I know that I read it in high school, but I can't remember anything about it. I think I liked it. I probably won't be rereading again anytime soon. I think its for highschoolers, so I guess it's kind of right up my alley. It's about four teenage girls whose best friend died, but she's still sending them text messages from the grave. It's all a mystery drama. Now I'm hooked. Sometimes I wonder how shows like this make it past a season, so we'll have to see.
Oh yeah and I know that I'm one of those Twilight people that you think I went and saw the midnight showing, well I didn't because I was working! And I also know that every other middle schooler, and high schooler is going to be there too, and I don't have time for little squealers. So I'll be waiting a couple of weeks before going to see that!
Two days of TV watching, and I'm all caught up!
All my posts are about TV.. I promise to try to add more substance to this blog... I do promise that there's more to me then/than (I need a grammar lesson) the TV that I watch. I sleep a lot too!!!!

The End

Tonight was the season finale of Glee... I may or may not have cried, and it may or may not have been more or less upsetting then when I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and I felt like a part of my life was over. Yes, it was that serious. I may or may not have cried every other time I've read it, in hopes that it just keeps going and doesn't end... I may continue to watch season 1 of Glee until season 2 starts so that I don't feel abandoned by Mr. Shu and Sue Sylvester all summer long. 

Before I start with my recap - I have a funny story to share with you all. I am usually pretty good with my money, much to the dismay of my family members. Can I stretch a dollar? No, not really. But, I am good about just wanting one thing, that thing might cost a little bit of money, but when I only want one thing that costs a little bit of money I don't see the problem. My sister and mom on the other hand can buy a whole lot of things for the amount of money I would spend on one. To-may-to, to-ma-to right? Well, I went shopping before Kiley's wedding with a dear friend that I have made here in White Plains, and to say the least, we are toxic shopping partners for each other, because we both have Grover Cleveland taste on an Andrew Jackson budget. So, I just wanted something nice for my best friends wedding, I don't really get dressed up anymore, nor do I really fit into any of my clothes (thanks to being married...) so I just needed a few things. Well friday comes and goes, the weekend passes, and then Tuesday the hubs decides to check the credit card statement... I get a text at 2am while at work asking if I've been to The Limited, Ann Taylor Loft, Barnes and Noble, Sephora, the nail place and what is Tropical Lights and have I been there, because if not then our credit card has been stolen!! Hmm.. this could've gone awry in a hurry - but luckily I eased his anxiety and let him know that it was just me. So needless to say I am unfortunately on a shopping hiatus - but only until Florida! I worked a Memorial Day right!? 

While I'm off the topic of Glee for a moment, and we're talking about our upcoming vacation to Florida - can I just talk about how much I am looking forward to Chick-fil-a!! Like I can barely contain myself... When I was in Dallas last week, that is all I wanted and of course on a wedding weekend, every meal is planned and I felt as if I was going to miss out on my one chance to eat a delicious chicken sandwich with chick-fil-a sauce and waffle fries and I could feel the world crumbling around me..  Everyone thought I was nuts, but for reals people, you don't realize what you have until you just don't have it anymore. Well I thought that my ship had sailed but lo and behold in the south where there's a Target, there's a chick-fil-a, and being the good friend that I am and totally not thinking of myself and my needs, I got chicken biscuits for everyone! Wasn't that sweet of me!? We won't talk about how many I may or may not have eaten... But stop number one when we get home - chicken sandwiches for all!!

Back to Glee... the reason for this post -
As if I couldn't love this show even more, they do a Journey tribute for regionals and I love nothing more than a good fist pumping Journey song - oh that just put me over the edge. Let's just take a moment... So good. I can't say anything else about it. For a while there I thought we might see that Sue Sylvester really does have a heart - I don't know if I'm happy or disappointed about this!? Her heartlessness really makes the show. It just does. And just when you thought she went all sappy she returns to her old self with the "I'll throw up in your mouth" comment. And all was right in the Glee world again. I don't want to talk about it too much because I don't want to give anything away, because you can watch the whole season from the beginning starting on thursday night at 8pm all summer long. I know that you all are going to jump on this bandwagon. The singing makes this show - I can beat this topic like a dead horse because they really are just that good. Sooo watch it!

In the aftermath of Glee and my depressed state that it's over for the summer - I watched the Bachelorette. Can we talk about Ali's hair?? It's so bad, it kind of looks like she never washes it - I mean I get that, I've gone a few days without washing my hair, but I'm not trying to find a husband... on national television... I mean she just needs a good wash, blow dry, and a brush perhaps? A good comb? A little tease? I don't know, I'm not a professional hair stylist but I'm pretty sure ABC could sell her look a little better - the blonde california beach girl look just isn't for everyone. Also, I am totally team Roberto and team Kirk. How cute are they!? I am really trying to stay away from websites with spoilers because the whole point of the show is the element of surprise at the end right? Right! Even though I watched the bachelor all season and then walked into the breakroom the night of the season finale and saw him on the after the rose show with Vienna. That ruined that... I don't know why I watch these shows, they're so staged and fake. And boys are not supposed to be dramatic and they are worse then a bunch of high school girls! And high school girls are brutal - I know this because I was a high school girl once upon a time. I was totally one of the nicer ones though, friends with everybody, because that's just how I roll. 

I could go on and on about the TV that I watch, but I must go run, I know you're wondering how my training is going... I ran 3.6 miles last night - which is the most to date. I'm really proud of myself. You can be too.

Getting a little lazy

I have been and am probably going to be a bad blogger.. until July.  Because y'all June doesn't even exist in my mind - I work 7 out of 9 days, then we'll be in Florida until the end of the June, then I work fourth of July - so middle of July seems to be the time to look forward to!! Don't get me wrong I am looking forward to family time in Florida but I might just need a vacation from our vacation when this is all over! I get exhausted just thinking about all the go go going we will be doing! But considering I'm going to be visiting and seeing the only people that read this, it's really not such a huge deal.

Real life summer, isn't really summer at all! I miss counting down the days left of school until I could do absolutely nothing but read a good book at the beach! Now I miss whole entire days! The hubs and I talked over our schedules until we leave, and decided that we'll just meet each other at the White Plains airport June 16 ready to go to Florida. I really hope that the oil waits to hit the beaches until I can get there!! It's been a whole year and I just want a chance to see it the way I remember it!

I am also looking forward to seeing the sister, and her little buddha belly, which I've heard isn't so little anymore. But I can't wait to introduce myself to the little guy. I know he's not here yet, but he can still hear me! And I can't wait to be silly, and slightly inappropriate with my favorite sister! Because if you can't be a little inappropriate with your sister, then who can you act like that with!? Good times are waiting to be had people!

One year down...

And hopefully many more to come! Today the hubs and I have been married for one whole entire year!! It has absolutely FLOWN by!! And yet our wedding also feels like it was ages ago! So much has changed for us this year, and all for the better!
We started out our lives together in a studio apartment, with no air conditioning, a block away from government housing... fun! Right!? For a little while anyway. We have now moved to a one bedroom, with air conditioning (Praise the baby Jesus cause it gets h-o-t here!!), and a one minute walk to my two favorite places! Target and Barnes & Noble! My, how the times are a changing for us!

I spent the end of the week at Kiley's wedding -

Nothing like celebrating someone else's new love to make you feel all giddy and in love yourself! I know we've only been married a year, but we've been together for over 8 - longer than most marriages last these days... that's saying something right!? I think so!

So, Happy Anniversary to my dear!
