My Guilty TV Pleasures

Here are some of the shows I find I am addicted to right now.  I think the overall theme would be, I like a good train wreck when I see one:

 Real Housewives of NJ is back!! I love NJ and I love the drama!
Real Housewives of Orange County, who does not love the original ladies of drama.
 My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, they are British (or Irish), they dress crazy, are loud, sometimes fight, and know how to party!
My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, just like their UK counterparts yet they could be your neighbor.
Say Yes to the Dress Bridesmaids, way more entertaining than the brides.
This show never gets old.

What's your guilty TV pleasure??? 

Weekend Wrap Up

Nothing too exciting this weekend.  We cleaned and organized some of the house and Justin got together some things he wanted to sell.  Sat night we had some yummy dinner at Ruby Tuesday's.  I had the Filet Mignon and the oh so good salad bar.

Sunday I worked on Justin's parents scrapbook for their cruise.  I am close to done and it is coming out pretty good.  That night we made a new dinner.  I made mini meat loafs, broccoli cheese dish, corn pudding, and mashed cauliflower. They actually all turned out pretty good and with them from the Weight Watchers books they were pretty good for us too.

This week has already been a busy one.  Today I went downtown for work and had to be on the 6:30am train.  I did not get home until after 6pm.  Tomorrow is a bit better as we are taking the 6:55am.  So far so good and I am hoping the rest of the week goes just as well.  We ate lunch at this pretty good salad place today called Freshii.  I had the Ivy salad which was really good.  I want to try the Fiesta tomorrow.  I also woke up this morning to Tobi laying between Justin and I with his head on my pillow and his body under the covers.  What a strange cat!

Yeah I am in your spot, what are you going to do about it?

I'm on the table!

Life is rough for a cat.

I'm making the bed!

Fill in the Blank Friday

1.  When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is,  tell Justin to get up and find the cats .

2.   I can hardly wait for   Lauren to come visit and our trip to MN and WI in June!

3.  The quickest way to my heart is     kindness      because     I am a sucker for when people do sweet things.

4. A little known fact about me is that    I was afraid of the dark growing up and had to sleep with a light on.  Now I can't have the slightest light on when I sleep or it drives me nutts!

5. The best part about my job is    solving problems for clients and working with my co workers .

6. Something I just couldn't live without is    Taco Bell  .

7.  Something useful that I wish I knew how to do is  build things out of wood. I would love to be able to whip up a table or some other kind of furniture if I needed it.

Weekend Wrap up

Justin's parents came to visit for the weekend Friday night.  Saturday Justin's mom and I went to the Premium outlets in Pleasant Prairie.  She found some clothes, bath and body works stuff, and sun glasses.  I found the following:
2 dresses from NY&Co and a black skirt-
I got a combo dress at Loft.
This top at White House Black Market and another stripe shirt
This Arctic Parka normally $300 at North Face on sale for $99 in black.
and my very first Coach purse, this one is $400 normally and I got it for $99
Mine is called Ivory and it is a champagne color.
For dinner we went to Sweet Tomatoes, Justin's mom was not feeling good so we just went with his dad.
Sat we had lunch with his parents at Denny's before they headed home.  We went to my parents for dinner and grilled burgers on the Foreman.  We hung out and talked and stayed until a little after 7pm.  Then I came home and feel asleep on the couch, big surprise.  
All in all it was a very nice weekend!

Fill In The Blank Friday

1. Today is a good day because it's Taco Bell and errand Friday.  Plus this busy week is finally over .

2. The best thing I did all week was enjoy a relaxing Easter with Justin, the boys, and MLB tv .

3. The current weather is sunny and chilly, maybe 50s and it makes me feel like I need to get stuff done around the house.

4. The best thing about spring is the flowers and not having to have the heat or air one .

5. A fashion trend that I'm dying to try out for spring is cute colorful flats with my pedal pushers.

6. A person who made me smile this week was my  my husband, he always makes me laugh and smile.

7. The most delicious thing I ate all week was the yummy India House lunch I had with my old co workers on Tuesday.  Who would have thought I apparently love Indian food.

I got to have Chick Fil A tonight after the dentist.  With the lack of Chick Fil A restaurants we have up here, this was a special treat.
