    June 2017 Favorites

    June is over already?! I’m always in disbelief at how quickly the months go by, but knowing that we’re more than halfway through 2017 already is mind boggling. As always I’m sharing some things I loved this month. I have two snacks that I loved (and still am loving) in June. First, I’ve been loving veggie straws because they are the perfect snack! I love the subtle flavor and the crunch. They’re used to snack on when you’re on the go or just watching tv. Lately, I’ve been so busy that sometimes I’ll be a little hungry before leaving the house and I’ll just put a handful of these veggie straws…

    Red Nose Day – Love Actually Sequel

    Did you watch the Red Nose Day special on TV the other night? During the broadcast they played the much hyped about Love Actually sequel. Not really a proper sequel, it’s just a short that gives you a glimpse into what the characters are up to today. I absolutely love Love Actually so when I heard they were doing a sort of sequel for Red Nose Day, I was really excited. I recorded the special and just got around to watching it yesterday. I thought they would play the whole short at once during the broadcast but instead they played little clips at a time spread out through the hour. Because they…

    Dirty Dancing – Remake

    If you are on social media, especially Twitter, then I’m sure you heard lots of opinions on the made for tv remake of the iconic movie Dirty Dancing. And if you saw the remake yourself you probably have some strong opinions. I was really looking forward to watching this because I’ve loved Dirty Dancing since I was a kid. Even when I was really young and I didn’t really understand the whole movie, I still loved all the dancing and I could tell it was a love story. Looking back on it, Dirty Dancing has had an effect on my life in more ways than one. It helped foster my love for dance. I’ve…

    What I’m Watching – Spring

    I know it was not that long ago that I did a “What I’m Watching” post. My last one was just over a month ago. But since that post went up I watched (and finished watching) a few other shows and I wanted to talk about them now rather than waiting til later. Victoria –  I wrote a whole post about this show and how much I loved it! I watched the whole season on Masterpiece on PBS last month and was hooked. It follows Queen Victoria beginning from when she first becomes queen, learns what it means to be queen, falls in love with Albert, etc. 2. Homeland – Homeland‘s…

    Grimm – Series Finale

    Any Grimm fans out there? The show had its series finale this past Friday and you can bet I watched it. I have been a big fan of the show since it premiered 6 years ago and didn’t want it to end. I’ve mentioned Grimm before on here like (here) and in some other favorites posts. If you’ve never watched it before you might like it if you like supernatural, mystery, action type shows. And if you you haven’t watched it before and you don’t know what it’s about let me give you a quick synopsis. Nick Burkhardt is a detective for the Portland police when mysterious things start to happen…

    March 2017 Favorites

    Happy April! That’s right, somehow it’s already April and I’m still double-checking that I write down 2017 when I write the date. So with the end of a month and the beginning of another I’m back with my March favorites. My favorites for March are a little all over the place, but I guess it’s symbolic of how crazy and all over the place the month seemed to be for me. Without further ado, let’s get to it! Earlier in March I was sick with a really bad stomach bug. I don’t get sick often and when I am sick with things like bad colds etc, I’m usually a trooper about…

    Victoria

    If you’re a reader from the UK or (possibly) other parts of the world (I’m guessing Europe) then the TV series Victoria might not be anything new to you. But here in the US the show just finished showing its first season a few weeks ago. Not a surprise that I loved it! So much so that I felt the need to write a whole post about the show!   If you don’t know what the show is about, let me give you a brief synopsis. The show follows a young Queen Victoria. The first episode begins with the death of her uncle, the King of England, and with her being the…

    What I’m Watching

    If you know me, you know I watch my fair share of TV. I DVR more shows that I can count as well as watch shows on Netflix and the like. I thought I’d share a few shows I’m currently watching a lot of that I haven’t really talked about on here yet. Peaky Blinders – I’m obsessed with this British gangster drama. I know I’m late to the party, but I just started watching it earlier this winter. There are only 3 seasons out and I’m a few episodes short of finishing the available episodes but I’ve put off finishing it because I heard the next season won’t be…

    Spy TV Shows

    It’s not a secret that I watch a lot of TV. My DVR is constantly recording something or multiple things every night. And I like a lot of different genres – from whimsical fantasy like “Once Upon a Time” to supernatural action shows like “Grimm” to family dramas like “This is Us”. One genre that I really enjoy is spy dramas. But since today I’m focusing on spy TV shows, not movies, so no James Bond and Jason Bourne here. “Alias” – I love/loved “Alias”! I have the DVDs so I have watched the series more than once but it’s been a few years. Maybe it’s time to rewatch! Anyway, “Alias” was…

    The Crown

    Have you watched Netflix’s original series, The Crown? It premiered on Netflix last month and I just finished watching it a few weeks ago and I loved it! This series really kept me interested for various reasons. I love history and although this show is just inspired by true events (who knows what the conversations really were or what really happened behind closed doors) it is an interesting look into history and the royal family which is another fascination of mine. The show follows a young Queen Elizabeth navigating life, politics, marriage, motherhood, and the world of royalty. The show begins with her still being a princess as her father, King George,…
