I recently started using Instagram and I am loving it! It is such a fun outlet to share what goes on during my day (as exciting or boring as it may be) with my friends. I have especially enjoyed sharing pictures from recent organizing projects because not all of them end up on the blog. Harper also makes her cameo on Instagram pretty often and I think she likes having the spotlight.

You would think I would get my fill of drama working as a professional organizer because of all of the clutter and family dynamics that I work with but no. When it comes time to relax I tune right into the drama that is The Real Housewives.
I am addicted to all of the Real Housewives shows, I just cannot get enough of their spray tans, fabulous handbags, adorable children, and don’t forget the DRAMA! I have been a fan from the beginning, back with the O.C. Housewives were the only Real Housewives. Now the brand follows women from all over the country.
Right now 3 of my favorite seasons are on at the same time, New York, O.C., and New Jersey, I hate to say it but I am kind of on overload! I love the Beverly Hills and Atlanta women but I have had to say no to watching the D.C. Housewives (which is now canceled) and the Miami Housewives (which was too boring to watch anyway) because I would be watching new episodes 365 days a year.
Vicki and Gretchen are my favorite girls from the O.C., they are both funny and over the top in different ways. Peggy is the new girl and her over the top lifestyle is just ridiculous to me, I can’t wait for her character to develop over the next few seasons, is it possible the she and her husband are really that rich? I am sad the season is wrapping up and I heard the finale is going to be dramatic.
The New York women are leaving for Morocco this week and from the previews it looks like the next 3 episodes are going to be insane. Ramona has many meltdowns and all of the women are fighting. Jill Zarin is definitely my favorite New York gal, I love her opinions and her sense of style. Ramona is my least favorite, you would think after watching herself on the show for the last 4 or 5 seasons she would learn to stop saying inappropriate things to people.
New Jersey is just getting started and it is Juicy Juicy Juicy! Past seasons were filled with Manzo family drama but this season the tables have turned and it looks like the feud between Teresa and her sister in law is going keep sizzling. This is probably my favorite of all of the seasons, I love all of the family connections, the over the top outfits, and the table flipping. Caroline Manzo is my hero, I love her kids and how she balances being nurturing and tough.
I wonder if they will attempt to film a season of the Silicon Valley or the San Francisco Housewives? We have some really powerful women out here so it would be interested to see who they would choose to be on the show roster.
Do you love the housewives as much as I do? What is your favorite season? Who is your favorite character?
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We were lucky enough to have Chris’ parents in town for the holiday which was nice. We shopped, had some great meals together, and celebrated Christmas at our church and with friends.
Before we went to church on Christmas Eve I took some pictures of Chris and his mom and dad and then we went to Maggiano’s for dinner.
Over the weekend our friends Russ and Laura had us over for a relaxing afternoon of football, baseball, good conversation, and lots of food. Since we don’t have a TV we miss out on so many great sporting events so it was really great to be able to watch the Stanford Homecoming game and the San Francisco Giants playoff game. It was so fun to cheer on the Giants with friends, we are all so excited that they are going to the World Series. Who would have thought it would be Rangers vs. Giants? Continue Reading »
It’s hard to believe it has been one year since Chris and I have owned a television. When we moved from Chicago to California we left it behind to be included in the sale of our condo. Since we didn’t know how long it would take to sell our condo we tried to be as frugal as possible once we moved, with 2 house payments the budget was really tight. We cut out all of the extras and cable was one of them.
Our condo finally sold last Spring (8 months after the move) and the first thing people asked us was if we were going to buy a television. At times be both miss watching TV. Chris wishes he could watch football games and movies while I miss my cooking shows and events like the Oscars and the Miss America Pageant (don’t judge me!!!) We are able to watch some of our favorite shows like Biggest Loser and Modern Family on our computer but it isn’t the same.
Lately we have been talking about buying a television but we know that once we buy one we will probably never be without one again. Plus, we will be moving in April so we both think we should wait it out until we move into our new place, but then again that is still 5 months away. What to do what to do?
I am made a list of my Pros and Cons, please help us make our decision by voting in the top right corner and leaving your feedback in the comment section!
- It would be nice to know more about current events like the trapped Chilean miners, I had no idea!
- It would keep us entertained in the winter months, even though it is sunny most days it still gets dark early leaving us with not much to do…
- My brain could turn to mush because of the bad quality shows on television and the depressing topics on the news.
- I could gain weight because I will be sitting on the couch at night instead of cleaning or going for walks.
- We don’t have a cable hook up in the living room so we would have to get that set up…
- I may not blog as often because I will be hypnotized by television shows like “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “Jersey Shore.”
Hotel California….Desperado….Witchy Woman…what do these hits have in common? The Eagles!
At the last minute my client and friend Nancy asked me if I wanted to see them in concert on Saturday night, of course I said yes! My life as an Organizer doesn’t typically have perks like this so I was so excited! The tickets were in a private box which was so luxurious. My favorite thing besides all of the tasty snacks, limo transportation, and the private VIP elevator, was that the suite had a private bathroom. No lines, no mess, it’s truly the little things in life that make me happy.
Before we headed out I had Chris take a picture of us all glammed up. (I even broke out my hot rollers for the occasion!) Nancy and I always get down and dirty on the projects that we work on together so it was fun to have a night on the town together.
These are some of the photos that I took with my camera phone. The Eagles played solo all night, starting at 8pm and ended at 11:30. They played lots of their classic tunes along with songs from their new album.
So, a few days ago I told you about the Hollywood action going on in Chris’ hometown of Bad Axe Michigan. Over the last few days I have gotten lots of emails and texts from my family letting me know where Sean Penn has been spotted. This morning I was just informed that Sean was playing pool with the locals and it got me thinking, who would I want to play pool with? Below are 5 of my favorites, help me choose by casting your vote on the top right corner of the page. I can’t wait to see who wins!
