Happy Monday, friends!
Today is the first installment of "What's On..." and this month I thought it would be fun to share what's on our DVRs!
1) Grey's Anatomy
I got started on Grey's Anatomy when I was home with Luke the first summer I had him. I was hooked INSTANTLY and have been a die hard fan ever since.
The end of the mid-season where April was about to get married and Jackson stood up and said he loved her?!?!?! I died. And bawled like a total baby.
And since we're talking about bawling like a baby...
If you don't watch Parenthood, you need to stop what you're doing right now and order the first 4 seasons on DVD. It's real, and honest and quirky and I love everything about it. I cry every episode... happy tears, sad tears and years for no reason. It's amazing.
I find myself totally rooting for the characters, and if you're watching you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.... I mean GAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! Joel!!!!!!!!!!!
3) Amazing Race
We've watched Amazing Race from the beginning and we look forward to it every week. Teams of two race around the world and it's so fun to get to "know" the contestants and it's super interesting to get to see the world through the show.
So good. So so so good.
Dramatic, full of twists and turns and Fitz. Oh, Fitz.
5) Downton Abbey
I have to admit. I totally didn't get it when the whole "Downton Abbey thing" started. I thought it was going to be boring and stuffy and blah. I was totally wrong.
My only complaint about the whole show is that the seasons are too short. Trust me. Get on Netflix and start watching. You won't be sorry!!!
7) Modern Family
Modern Family is a highlight of my week. It comes on a night when I'm usually exhausted and it ALWAYS makes me laugh. Some nights we end up watching it twice it's just that good :)
These are my top picks.... but I'm also a fan of all the Real Housewives, Top Chef, Survivor, The Blacklist, Chicago Fire, etc. If you're wondering when I have time to watch so much TV....
... check out my dual computer monitors. I am on the computer A LOT for school and Slightly Askew and I usually have a show of some sort on one monitor while I work on the other. :)
ANNNNNNNNNNNND........... because it's birthday week and will be CRAZY, I'm recapping my weekend today as well! BONUS! hahaha
Thursday Griffin Joy did what Griffin Joy does.... eat leaves while lookin' cute! :)
Friday night Griffin went to bed early and the boys and I snuggled up and watched Rio a midst some major silliness :)
Griffin's itsy bitsy teensy weensy yellow polka dot bikini came in... and I am DEFINITELY feeling a hot pink BIG monogram on the front :)
Luke didn't win a prize, BUT a super sweet sixth grader gave Luke his prize :) I think that's even better! He has been inseparable from this football for the last 24 hours. hahaha
Griffin and Bowen checked each other out before heading to their classes :)
Sunday afternoon I cleaned the house and worked on this Monster bean bag toss for the kids birthday. I still have to do touch ups and paint the background and then cut out the mouths for the kids to throw bean bags through. I am NOT an artist by ANY stretch of the imagination.... but I can handle monsters :)
Sunday night was our monthly BFG Girls Social and I hosted a "dip party" at my house. I am LOVING my new Matilda Jane tunic :)
Dave took the boys, but G hung out with the girls. She showed off her thighs and her walking skills :)
Don't forget!!! Tomorrow is the first installment of Come On On! And we're going to link up and share our family rooms! Can't wait to get a peek into your homes!
