things i'm obsessed with: according to my friends

i love it when i read a fun post by another blogger and it gives me the idea to copy it because it is just that good.  such thing happened when i read this fun blog post by caroline where she asked her friends what she was obsessed with and with her blessing, i decided to copy her. so here goes!
**my friends' comments are in black and my responses to their comments are in pink because i just loove to copy caroline.


television, reading, music and pop culture:
it really really doesn't surprise me that this section is the biggest.  if you know me, then you know that i live and breathe television.  so well done friends, well done.  btdubs.... the peeps who i had do this was my sister my two best friends and my husband. 

gilmore girls - oh course, this is a 'duhhh.'  this is and always will be my favorite show of all time.  ot got me through some heavy stuff when i was a young teen.




"amazing tv shows in general like:"

parks and recreation - yes

blindspot -YES

nashville - YAS 

jane the virgin - once it was on netflix i went through it at warped speed. but love triangles bother me, and the drama is CRAZY.   so i am taking a break and not watching season 2 for a while. 

award shows 

oscars, tony awards, etc - yes, you know it's true
the story of each episode of tv i watch. "i dissect them." - taran wrote that one.  he knows better than anyone because he is the one who watches tv with me and i always have to say in the first 5 minutes of the mysteries of laura 'it was the assistant!!' and i have to always be right. 

script writers.  i always have to see who wrote each episode of each comedy.  i have to look up all the actors and all the writers and see what they did and see what they have done. - this is very, very true.  my poor husband.  raise your hand if you are an aspiring tv comedy writer? just me? leave it in the comments.  well whenever i watch an episode of a comedy, i must look for who wrote the episode. if we missed it, i make us go back until we find the name.  (ps. it's always announced after the creator of the show in the credits in the first act. after writer, director is announced. then credits stop.) then i pause the show and look up on IMDB who the person is and what else they wrote and if they haven't written anything ever according to my bff IMDB i get really mad.  but it would make for a fun trivia night! i can tell you who are the writers on each comedy show you love that's on tv and their writing history from memory.  and i follow all of them on instagram. #creepy. 

television and television - well said, amy. 




reading books

the bachelor - this only applies if amy is with me to make fun of every single person in the show and to laugh along with me.  watching it by myself is no fun at all. 

maroon 5

LA - of course! the greatest city in the world, the heart of the entertainment industry! i miss it so much! can i move back? 

people & pets:




your babies - meaning my nieces and nephews.  i do love them a lot.  but how could i not? they are so dang cute! 

max/future puppy that will be a golden retriever - in case you missed the story, here are memories from my childhood golden retriever dog named max. 

i am anti-obsessed with cats - hate them. HATE them. 

clothing and accessories:

socks - just like dumbledore.  i got socks for Christmas and was so happy.  or did dumbledore not like socks? no, i think he told harry he wanted a nice pair of socks instead of boring books. it get you, professor. 

fancy things on a budget



bling rings/jewelry - oooooh yes.  that is my vice. in september, i bought myself with my own money a 4 carat princess cut with halo.  it's fabulous and i love it. i told taran to get me this HUGE rock for our anniversary in 2 weeks.  obviously fake.  i only ask that all my fake rings be sterling silver so they don't turn my fingers green. i don't really care if i'm not surprised or not, i always tell him what to get me.  he likes that i'm decisive. ;) but i don't know what he engraved on it! 


gobstoppers - i have been obsessed with this particular candy since high school.  it is my other vice.  or maybe i have many. i love the gobstopper, hard candy not chewy.  and they are a candy miracle. 

some starbursts 

gushers - i have a problem.  we always have to have gushers in the house or else i get really crabby.  i must have them and i must eat them everyday. 


straws - i don't like drinking a glass of water and having to drink around the ice! 

water "(i was born with a glass of water in my hand.)" - that is taran's infamous phrase.  i do drink a lot of water.  i always have to be drinking water.  i get really thirsty easily and i drink about a gallon a day.  seriously.  there must always be a glass of water next to me, a full glass, or i get really anxious. 

dr pepper

sparkling red grape juice - i get so excited when this yummy that comes around the holiday season.  sparkling red grape juice cocktail by martinelli's is my all time favorite drink and is another thing i must always have in the house.  every time i drink it, i find it so relaxing. it is so tasty and delicious and makes me feel like i am treating myself, which makes a bad day much better. 



reading blogs

yes, yes, yes.  all true.  i spend a lot of time blogging. it is hard work.  i could do a lot more.  it's hard! and it takes up a lot of time! but i love it! i love "meeting" other bloggers and getting to know them even if they halfway across the country or even across the world.  

**all my friends know me extremely well and were right on all accounts.  i am, indeed, obsessed with all of the above.  now you go play and leave a comment on me and caroline's posts!
