When you have friends in the music industry- you hear a LOT about music, various forms- what inspires, such as tdpri at musiciansfriend.com & the list goes on. The thing I love is being able to share the passion with friends and see their faces light up when they talk about the things they love.

Hearing them play brings them as much joy as I feel when I bake and they enjoy my creations. What are you passionate about?

Is anyone else excited about the new season of Survivor? I believe this may be one of the most epic seasons of all time! I’ve been watching since Season 1 and tonight they are bringing back some of my all time favorites- Of course, if you know me in my real life- then you know I’ll be rooting 100% for JT Thomas, who is the winner of one of the seasons about 8 years ago. There are some other favorites in the mix as well, but I am team JT all the way.

What about you? Who are you rooting for on this season of Survivor?

Tonight- I’ll be turning on Hulu and catching up with my favorite programs from earlier in the week. I’ll be ‘home alone’ tonight, and that means watch what I want- not have to give the remote to anyone, and soak up all the girl time with none other than me, myself and I. As much as I love people and my guy- I also love spending time with myself. First up- a soak in the bathtub, then I’ll curl up with a blanket, turn on Hulu via the Smart TV and off I go- into the world of somewhere else.

Now if I could only find someone to deliver me some popcorn, life would be perfect.

I am sooo excited that my 3 Thursday night faves are back on as of last night. Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder and Scandal are back and I’m itching to watch them all. I have a dear friend coming over tomorrow night to spend the weekend, and we’ve agreed to watch Grey’s and Scandal together- so I’ll watch HTGAWM and save the rest until then.

I love my friend time, so I’m looking forward to spending the day out adventuring here and there, plus sharing some great conversation and giggles. I’ve done all the prep work for my soup and I’ll toss all the ingredients in the Crock-Pot tomorrow morning, turn the timer on and let it do the work for me. That’s how I like to make a meal when I’m out and about!

When I get home- I’ll whip up some of diddy’s cornbread and call it a meal. YEAH!

As for now- I hear Analies Keating calling my name. Is anyone else watching?

I am probably one of the few people who did not watch Gilmore Girls ‘back in the day’. Gilmore GirlsI did, however binge watch it when I discovered it on Netflix about a year and a half ago. Like most people who watched it, I fell in love with the characters and was very sad to see it end. Imagine how thrilled I (along with many others) were when Netflix announced they would be doing a ‘year in the life’ a one time deal to catch us up with what happened with the characters.

I’ve been waiting- probably more patient than most, since it was all still fresh in my mind.

When it dropped on Netflix, I started watching that very day.    At first it took me a second to realize that Rory was now 32, but I immediately fell in love with the quirkiness of the show all over again.

By the end of “Fall”, I found myself gasping at those few little words at the end of it all- leaving me with a HUGE hope that there will be another ‘season’.

Did y’all watch it too?  What did YOU think?  Will there be another season of Gilmore Girls, A year in the Life- or will that be it?    Leaving some questions unanswered and us fans wondering the obvious question…. (that I won’t share here as I hate those spoilers.)    But if you’ve watched it-  you know exactly what I mean!


Is anyone else excited that a majority of the new Fall shows begin THIS WEEK!! Survivor kicks off tonight and I can not wait to watch it. Followed by Grey’s, Scandal.. you get my drift.

I haven’t checked out any of the ‘new’ shows for the Fall line up, but have y’all got any good recommendations?

In the meantime, I think the return of all my favorites should keep me busy for a while.

With the temperatures dropping and the daylight hours being shorter and shorter- it’s the perfect time to curl up and watch!

How many of y’all are SOOO excited to see that your favorite shows are less than a month away from returning? We have been spending our time soaking up the new show Stranger Things on Netflix (and loving it), but I’ll admit I am ready for some Blacklist, Grey’s Anatomy,Survivor, Scandal.. and the list goes on.

What is in your list of “must watch” shows for the Fall? Inquiring minds want to know. Have you heard about any new shows? I haven’t, but admittedly, I haven’t looked yet either.

Has anyone seen the new show “Queen of the South”? I haven’t watched any of the episodes yet, but I keep laughing and telling Marcel that the show is about me- as I’m clearly the original Queen of the South. I’m joking, obviously- but I can’t wait to see how this show unfolds. There are quite a few summer shows out, and so far, I haven’t ‘loved’ any of the ones I’ve seen yet- Maybe it will come.

Tonight, we’ll probably catch up on the queen and see how we like it. I’ll keep you posted.

Right now, though- It’s time for me to get busy with reorganizing my work supplies. I’ve organized and reorganized them, but I’ve finally come up with a new plan that I ‘think’ (fingers crossed) will make more sense to me and help me feel better about how it’s all done.

Wish me luck!

During one of the weddings we attended while home on vacation, the band hired was a local group with a fantastic sound. I had not heard of them before, but they apparently are making waves locally. You could tell when they performed that they really loved what they were doing, plus were having fun in the process, which always makes a difference. They had top notch equipment and after talking to them, they told me they read about reviewed gear and made their purchase decisions based on that. It definitely worked for them and I can’t wait to see where they go from here. Something tells me they won’t be playing weddings for long, but will move up to bigger and better things.

One of my last posts- I mentioned Snap Chat and how it seems to be all the rage at the moment. At the time- I really wasn’t ‘getting it’, but fast-forward a month and my thoughts and perspective has changed.

We are on vacation and having a BLAST, but my almost 16 year old nephew spent some time showing me all the ‘ins’ of Snap Chat and I have to say that I’m hooked. It’s a fun way to share a moment with someone and unless they screen shot it- it’s lost after either 24 hours (if you post to a story) or instantly if you share with someone directly.

.. so back to my question… how many of you use Snap Chat and how do you feel about it?
