About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

I Admit It...

   I admit it.  I am addicted to reality TV.  "The Mole" just ended and, boy, was I surprised at who the mole was!  Now I have set my sights on the new season of  "The Amazing Race" and "Survivor"!  The shows are completely mindless and that's why I like them.  They are the perfect way to escape from life's craziness for an hour.:-) 
If you had your choice, which show would you be a contestant on?  There is no way I could make it on "Survivor" with the spiders, nasty drinking water, the challenges and the lack of basic necessities.  And, oh yeah, no food.  I would be begging for them to kick me off.  I could try "The Amazing Race", although Jeff has told me we would have to quit if there was a sky diving challenge.  My bags would be packed, Sweetie.:-) 

   "Survivor" starts on September 25th and "The Amazing Race" starts on September 28th.  Pop some popcorn and join the party.:-)

Be still, my heart! Just one month! I am so with you on both of those shows. My husband seriously contemplates trying out for both every year. I seriously think he could win. He'd be one of those nice guys who wins like Ethan or Tina.

Hi! It's Rhonda, your Halloween swap partner and I already see we have lots in common...I am counting down the hours for Amazing Race, and Survivor to start! LOL! Especially AR...my favorite reality show! You have a beautiful blog and I am a little intimidated to be paired with someone so crafty and talented! I hope I won't disappoint! :) Your fall table vignette looks great!

I am so excited for Australian survivor-woohoo!

Skydiving is not that bad!! I was actually more scared to go scuba diving and snorkeling than jump out of a plane (weird but true)

Hi Lori,
Tim came home early last night/then left again so I didn't get any "writing" in or my craft done...I will post it later. :)
I love your new blog header-TOO CUTE!
Tim and I are seriously into Survivor-I mean seriously into it! It's a sickness-We really are addicted to this show. And I like Amazing Race but Tim doesn't usually watch this one with me. If Jeff doesn't want to join the Amazing race I will hook up with you-I've jumped out of planes before! Fun, Fun! :)

My favorite's are The biggest Loser. I feel they really help people change their life for the better. I also love Design Star on HGTV. My dream is to someday be a contestant. Have fun watching all your shows!

I love those sort of shows too. Once you start watching you can't stop. My worst nightmare would be all those bugs. I wouldn't last 5 minutes.

My name is Gretchen and I'm addicted to Survivor and the Amazing Race. I don't like to admit these addictions, after all, I'm a grandmother and 60 years old. Shhhh! Don't tell anyone.

I love your new header! The gourds are great!
I hope that your backyard gets put back together! A day without phone and cable and the bathroom(?)--*sigh*--sounds like you're a Survivor contestant to me!

I'm not embarrassed to admit it but I am a reality show junkie. My favorite is Amazing Race....that was even the theme for my 30th birthday. I have often contimplated trying out with my patient husband.....maybe someday.
