TV Time!

I really want to hear what you all think! So leave a comment letting me know your opinion on our favorite shows

Monday nights M, C, and N come over to watch Gossip Girl, Greek, and Hoarders (that last one doesn't really go, haha). It is so nice to have someone else to watch with (aka talk pretty much the whole time-thank God for DVR!).

Greek: Where are the Casey/Cappie scenes?? We are almost halfway through the season! I don't even think they had a scene together in this week's episode. I do not like the preview for next week: Evan and Casey are done. They have gone there multiple times. It isn't going to work. Let's not go there AGAIN. Are there even any Evan and Casey fans? I am all for them being friends but let's leave it at that.

Gossip Girl: Am I in the minority here? The Serena acting out storyline is so annoying. But maybe that's just because she annoys me. I will stand by Chuck and Blair. I think I actually miss Little J. I like Carter. Dan's looking much better now that he gained some weight (or is that muscle?). Not a huge fan of his hair though (C loves it). I wasn't sure if I was going to like Bree and Nate together. Well they haven't really given us the chance to yay or nay because they have like one scene every episode! N is probably happy about that-she thinks Nate is too pretty. Do you like Georgina or not? I really hope Michelle's new show is picked up so she doesn't return to GG! One of these days I will do a fashion post. I promise!

One Tree Hill: I didn't watch last season (I am a new fan and just finished season 5 in May) but I think I like this season so far. Yeah it is kinda weird without Lucas and Peyton but I like the new guy (Clay?). Brooke and Julian=so cute. Not so sure about this new Nathan (fake) love child storyline. But he is so hot it doesn't matter.

Glee= I love it. The music, Emma's J.Crew wardrobe, etc.
SVU= I am still mad at how they ended last week's episode. I told myself that yes, they somehow got the innocent guy out of prison. Not sure I will keep watching.
ANTM= I am tall. I think you can figure out how I feel about this season. I don't think I could take up gymnastics all of a sudden. But it is entertaining. What happened to the crazy Jesus girl who decided not to do the show??? My sister googled her but found nothing. Does anyone know??
Flash Forward=Will keep watching. Probably going to get confusing but I think it will be fun. My fellow Lost fans: it gives us Penny and Charlie until Lost comes back in January.
Vampire Diaries=I am giving it a chance. Did you know the book was written in the early 90s (aka way before Twilight)? Vampires are all over the place right now!
Castle and the Mentalist=both are on my future husband list. Enough said.

ETA: How could I forget about the City and the Hills? Olivia better be playing it up for the cameras. She is so hard to watch! Why do I even watch the Hills anymore?? Justin has such a cute face. Why must he hide it behind all that hair and those ugly hats?

Ok there are so many other shows (NCIS, CSI, Brothers and Sisters) but this is enough for now. I will be responding to your comments so let's start dishing!


1. My birthday is next week (I can't believe it is almost OCTOBER!) so get ready for a WEEK of giveaways!!! I have some great giveaways lined up (but of course I am always looking for new products to feature ;)

2. Snail Mail people: For some reason the birthday section of the first 10 or so entries got deleted so please email me/comment if you have an October birthday-I want to send you a birthday card (sorry September people-I didn't realize the mistake until today)! If you would like to sign up for my snail mail list you can go here

3. My TV post will be tomorrow. We have a lot to talk about! If you have missed episodes then you may want to skip tomorrow's post-there may be spoilers.

4. Keep sending in your anchor photos. I will feature an anchor each week on my sidebar (right side).

5. Private bloggers-I am so sorry I haven't been commenting-I reorganized my bookmarks and thought I lost your links but I found them!

6. Head on over to my other blog to see what I am selling. I recently added a couple of items and will continue to list fall/winter clothing as I start unpacking the 2 huge boxes in my car.

I hope you all enjoyed last week's posts on some of my favorite shopping bargains. I was so busy last week I barely had time to check in (thank God for scheduled posts!). I started a part time job last week and then worked all weekend (I was seriously going to bed at 9 PM!). I am going to continue to look for something full time but it is nice to have a little extra income!

I was working close to Angela on Friday so we met up for dinner after we both finished work. She got me another pack of my favorite Target notecards (which sold out at my nearest Targets-yes, I checked multiple Targets!). Thank you Angela!

I also wanted to say a very happy (very belated) birthday to Danielle!

Ok you could browse Forever21 for days: SO MUCH STUFF! I didn't even tackle jewelry or dresses (maybe next week)! Some of the tops may not be considered "preppy" per se but I love them! When I worked in an office setting I loved pairing cheap tops from Forever21 with my nicer Banana Republic pants-great way to save some money but still look professional!
