Thank you for all your kind words about our pictures!! You all are so sweet!
A couple of people asked about our clothing. My entire outfit was from Express. It's pretty much the only place I buy my clothes. I try and shop elsewhere and then I always end up going to Express. They always have amazing coupons and sales so I can get our stuff for super cheap (its about the only thing Luke wears also). And their jeans fit me the best, even on this post baby body.
Eli's outfit was from Old Navy and I was so excited to find it. Actually I didn't find it, I told twitter what I had in mind (a one piece sweater outfit) and my friend Jill was the first to send me this link to the Old Navy outfit. It is still there and is a great price. I actually got Eli's outfit first and then planned ours around it.
This summer I first saw a preview for a new TV show called Once Upon a Time.
I was immediately intrigued. I had NO idea what it was about but it looked good. It premiered this past Sunday so at 7:00 I sat down to watch it with no expectation. I realized it could easily go either way. And I have to say I LOVED it. I read in an article that ratings were the best for a TV show on ABC in nearly 3 years - but the verdict is still out from critics as to whether it will be picked up for a full season or not. I'm definitely excited to watch this show - as many episodes as it has. I'm hoping it stays just as good as the first episode was and gets picked up!
I've heard a lot about the show Revenge but I haven't checked it out yet.
I have to admit when I first saw the previews I thought it looked ridiculous but apparently I'm missing out on a great show. I can't decide if I want to catch up on episodes or wait until the end of the season and watch them all at once.
One thing that brings me great joy is finding a TV show that Luke and I both love. Clearly I'm easily "joyed" but it is so fun to find a show that we both look forward to watching. Our last show like this was Friday Night Lights, hands down the best show in the world. BEST.
I could actually sit down and watch the entire series again but Luke doesn't want to do that. So I've been trying to find a new show for us to love together. Luke is actually amused at how determined I am to find us a new show.
While Luke was on Fall Break last week we started watching Parenthood on Netflix Instant.
I so want to find a show that we both love and have maybe become a little obsessive about it. After each completed episode I would ask Luke"did you like it?" "how do you feel about it?" I never directly ask him IS THIS OUR NEW SHOW? But I desperately want to find one. Well desperate is a strong word but I would really really like to find us a show to watch. You know, in all our spare time.
Parenthood was good but doesn't have us hooked yet like Friday Night Lights did. It's hard to compete against PURE GOLD. All future shows in our lives sure have their work cut out for them.
What TV show is your favorite show right now? Did anybody else watch Once Upon a Time? I have high hopes!
