Friday Letters

Friday letters

Dear NF, you’re everything to me… I can’t believe 4 years ago today I was baking Halloween cookies for a charity (best cookies ever and I should probably make them again in your honor) and by Sunday night I was having contractions ALL night – and you were born at 6:47 PM Halloween night.  You make me so happy and proud to be a mom.  It could be raining outside and you’ll still tell me it’s a beautiful day.  I can’t squeeze hug you enough!!

Dear hot chocolate, I’m kinda liking you lately, but as soon as I actually buy a box of you, I’ll probably be over it and throw the box out 2 years later when I realize it’s expired (has happened before).

Dear rain, stay far far away tomorrow PLEASE, thanks.

Leah Remini, I’ve always been a fan of yours.  Since like saved by the bell days (though it felt wrong, Zack needed to be with Kelly, honestly).  I loved you on the talk when I was on maternity leave… I am loving you filling in for Erin Andrews on DWTS the past two weeks.  Wasn’t I expecting a book Fall 2013 when you were a contestant on DWTS?  Is this the book that I’ve been waiting for?  Two years later… ugh I gotta read it.  I wish it came out Nov 1st instead of 3rd…. is it possible it would be early release like Orange is the New Black?  Leah, are you actually going to answer my Friday letter to you?

Dear pumpkins in the lawn, what animal has been terrorizing you and taking bites out of you at night?

Dear Fayetteville Target, why would you not have a Starbucks, I mean come on?  Super weird.

Dear holiday themed shower curtains, I think I wanna be that mom who does this.

Lamar Odom, k got it, you’re still in the hospital.  but why do I still read every update?  This is going to be a long recovery and I’ll know every detail, whether I want to or not.

Dear Smellen, I wish I was with you on your honey moon.  and I wish you weren’t missing Halloween.

Dear Grey’s and Modern Family, UHHH I wish I had a warning you weren’t going to be new this week.  and WHAT no modern family Halloween episode?  How disappointing.

Dear The Chew, I gotta see what you guys dress up as this year, GOT TO!

Dear Janman, I can’t believe you got a princess peach costume to go trick or treating with NF, you’re nuts, and I love it.

Dear baby in my belly, I can’t wait to hold you and I hope you’re a very good baby that sleeps a lot… like preferably from 8 pm to 8 am and then naps during the day.  Thank you!

Thursday Thoughts

Today’s Thursday and I’m linking up with Ramblings of a Suburban Mom!

WHAT in the WORLD is up with this season of Dancing with the Stars??  Here are my thoughts… So Monday was week 9’s episode… and Elizabeth (Jesse from Save by the Bell) was sent home… So we have Amber Riley, Leah Remini, Corbin Bleu, Jack Osbourne, and Bill Engvall left.  The past like 7 weeks Bill Engvall is shocked beyond belief that he’s still on the show… and so is the rest of America… WHO is voting for him???  He doesn’t get very good scores… who knew Bill Engvall has such a large fan base.  So on to my next thought…. is it all rigged?  I’ve been watching A LOT of Scandal… and I’m thinking it has to be rigged… like the week with the technical difficulties and no one was sent home… total cover up scandal.  I saw the same thing happen on The X factor – due to technical difficulties no one was sent home.  Conspiracy!!

SCANDAL AD ART

I’m in the middle of season 2 of Scandal… it’s a terrific show to binge watch since you’re dying to know what happens at the end of each episode.  It’s on Netflix… I recommend it to everyone.  OH and I love ALL of Olivia Pope’s Clothes… and SPEAKING of…

I was watching season 2 episode 8 the other day – and I saw this dress… and it’s like almost the exact dress my friend wore to her son’s baptism on Sunday… I texted her immediately… we were both so excited that her dress was seen on TV (I love seen on TV clothes).  She was worried about her dress choice, but seeing that Olivia Pope wore it eliminated her apprehension.

And on to my next thought… searching for that dress online I stumbled upon the site http://scandalmoments.tumblr.com/ and if you’re a true Scandal fan you’ll totally LOVE it.  There’s a Olivia Pope Fashion page and I LOVE IT.  MAYBE I should start collecting Scandal clothes and stop looking at the Pretty Little Liar clothes… ya know cause it’s probably more age appropriate??

So I’m not THAT into Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… but I did watch the first episode… I still need to watch Monday’s episode.  My thoughts on the two new housewives… well Joyce Giraud has the most amazing hair on the planet… and Carlton practices witchcraft.  My rule in life… never trust anyone who practices witchcraft.  (sorry if you’re reading this and do practice witchcraft… I don’t mean to offend).

Is just barely 2 years old too young for Elf on the Shelf?  Will he get it?  Will I really do the fun things you’re supposed to do with it???  Is it worth the $30??  What are your thoughts?

Dancing With The Stars Update

dwts

So I did a prediction post for the order I thought the dwts contestants would be off the show.  Dancing With the Stars 17 Elimination Predictions.

My 1st elimination pick was Bill Engvall… he wasn’t eliminated first, Keyshawn Johnson was.

My 2nd elimination pick was Bill Nye.

Thoughts on tonight’s show… Amber Riley and Derek Hough… I don’t care what the judges said, that was the most entertaining dance of the NIGHT (other than Bill Nye)!  I really think Amber is going to win the whole season.

And Bill Nye dancing like a robot… LOVED IT!  I can’t believe I cried – I love this man!  (But how can he continue like that – I still voted for him though!)

anyone else liking that it’s one night now?

The results… the 2nd contestant going home… Bill Nye.  NOOOO!!  But my prediction was correct.

Dancing With the Stars 17 Elmination Predicitons

THIS is my Dancing With the Stars 17 Elimination Predictions!!

#12 – Bill Engvall – paired up with newbie Emma Slater with little fan base – I don’t think Bill will make it too far.

#11 – Bill Nye, The Science Guy… Sorry Bill… I’m a fan of yours but I don’t think you’ll make it too far.

#10 – Valerie Harper.  Everyone in the WORLD will be rooting for Valerie… but sadly I believe the show will be really tough on her.  And the doctor’s may suggest she stops.

#9 – Jack Osbourne… his not perfect coordination will get the best of him and he just can’t keep up with Cheryl Burke.  He might have a mini meltdown (but nothing really serious) when they film them practicing.  I REALLY hope his family is in the audience each week!!

#8 Snooki – OHH I am so glad she’s part of the cast this year.  I wanna see a slim mama Snooki!

#7 – Brant Daugherty… I am SO a Pretty Little Liars fan but he’s not even a good character.

#6 – Elizabeth Berkley Lauren …. she isn’t quite saved by the bell this time… ha..ha..

#5 – Leah Remini… who doesn’t love her??  And her scandal with Scientology… you KNOW I’m reading that book.

#4 – Keyshawn Johnson… He’s great but he’s just no Jacoby Jones… and he only makes it to #4

Final 3…

Christina Milan, Corbin Blue, Amber Riley

AND THE WINNER… Christina Milan!  With Amber in 2nd… Corbin in 3rd.
