Happy Monday, Friends!
Today Erika and I are linking up and talking entertainment!
So first I'm going to talk about TV. I feel like I probably watch A LOT of TV... but I think that's because I can multi-task. I can watch an episode while I lesson plan on the computer, watch another episode while I fold a load of laundry... you get the idea.
I Just finished the first episode of "This is Us" on NBC.
Y'all... I'm obsessed.
I loved the entire episode... but when the last 5 minutes happened I was totally shocked and I bawled like a freaking baby. Just trust me and watch it if you haven't already. If you missed it last week, you can watch it HERE on nbc.com
People have been comparing it to Parenthood and while I'm not sure ANYTHING will ever be as good as Parenthood, the first episode has me hopeful.
If you haven't' watched Parenthood I am BEGGING you to get on Netflix ASAP and start with Season One. You'll want to be a Braverman in no time and will feel totally invested in their family.
While you're on Netflix click over and check out the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It's totally quirky, but so much fun. Titus Andromedon is my FAVORITE!
I am sticking with Grey's Anatomy... although, as someone who has watched it from the beginning it's just not the same as it used to be. I'm hopeful for this season, though! I LOVE me some Miranda!
Dave and I just started Survivor and we get sucked in every season. The whole "generational" think going on is interesting and I'm anxious to see how that dynamic plays out.
I spend A LOT of time in the evenings on the computer and I'm considering rewatching Gilmore Girls for the 4th (I think!) time in preparation for the new episodes out in November. I know there's a lot of hype about it and TRUST ME it lives up to it. The banter, the setting, the pop cultural references, the mother-daughter dynamic... it's all the best.
As far as music goes, I talked about some of my selections (and what I use to listen to music) in this post, but since then I've added a few more to my personal library. I listen to Pandora and buy songs as I hear them (I'm a sucker) and then can listen to them while I work during my planning periods in the afternoon without having to stream on WiFi.
I am LOVING Jasmine Thompson! She is SO GOOD!!!
I LOVE the song Titanium and Madilyn Bailey's cover of it is incredible.
Meghan Trainor is always a good "get up and go" music. This is my current favorite...
Boyce Avenue Wake Me Up...
And Gone, Gone, Gone by Phillip Phillips have been on repeat as well.
And then of course Closer...
And this cover of Don't Stop Believing.
I wish I could tell you all about some fabulous new movie that I saw or great book I've read recently... but I don't have either of those for you. Which is kind of sad :) hahaha
I'm working my way through Girl on the Train (I'm just a teeny bit late to that party) and am really liking it so far and I saw Bad Moms twice with a couple different groups of friends. But other than that, I don't have much to report. I always say I'm going to read more... and then I always fall asleep. #thestruggleisreal
I'm looking forward to reading about what y'all are watching, reading and listening to! I need to know if I'm missing anything awesome.
Happy Monday, girls!
