Fall TV Favorites


   I am so thankful for Fall television. All summer long I anticipate their return, and yes I can always count on True Blood to tie me over until then. Here are a few of my most favorite shows.

Criminal Minds
Ya'll, for real this is my favorite television show, I can't get enough. Dr. Spencer Reid is amazing, every episode is different and it's one of those shows that you don't have to watch every episode to get it, although, duh, I do.
 
 
CSI: Vegas
 
I am a forever fan of this entire franchise but sadly the OG is the only one still on air. I love it, it's again a show that you don't have to consistently watch to know what's going on or to appreciate the plot line. I miss the old cast, a lot, but am learning to enjoy the new members.
 
American Horror Story: Coven
 
I can't even begin to describe to you how excited I am for this premiere tomorrow night. I have the highest of expectations for this season. First, I am obsessed with all things horror, voodoo, creepy, haunted... you get the idea. Second, New Orleans is my favorite place on the planet. Seriously. I think the cast is incredible, I know Ryan Murphy is a genius, surely nothing can be bad about this season. Really, I am super excited!
 
Hostages
 
This is so far my favorite NEW show. I thought that after the first episode there possibly couldn't be anything else to explore as far as the story line goes, but the second episode just got better and better. I am loving it thus far. And yes, Dylan McDermott does often favorite and or like my tweets because I am super in love with him, but that is not the only reason I watch. This is a great show!
 
The Mindy Project
 
 
This show is hilarious, like really laugh out loud funny. Blake and I discovered it late into the season last year but it quickly became our favorite Tuesday night show. I have been a fan of hers since The Office and in this show she truly shines. I believe she is the funniest person on the planet so if you're not watching you should.
 
Boardwalk Empire
 
This is my Sunday night favorite. This is an old picture, lots of these characters aren't there anymore. I love the era and I am fascinated every episode. Great watch, and incredible acting!
 
What are some of your favorite shows? Is there something I need to be watching that I'm not?

Little Things

   Lately I have been giving thanks for the little things that we often take for granted. Have you ever felt that your heart lacked gratitude? Well, I have. I've found myself becoming bitter, often resentful, and I've now reminded myself that not only am I saved by His grace, but I am lucky. When I think that my boss is not treating me fairly I remind myself that I am blessed to have a job and a boss who has feedback for me. When driving behind someone whom I believe is driving poorly, I thank God that I have a car, and am capable of driving. Sometimes it's the tiniest things that need the most thanks.
   With so much chaos and uncertainty in this world I'm certain of one thing, I am blessed, and saved by His great sacrifice. Remember that. We all have much to be thankful for, even in these troubled times.

October Obsessions

    
     October is my favorite month out of the year! I look forward to the cooler weather, the evenings getter darker, my anniversary, and of course the thrill of Halloween. I'm not a pumpkin spice latte type of person, but I do enjoy pumpkins and what they bring. I don't have much to tell you other than here are a few of my October obsessions.

     Loving this song by Miley
 
Women's Animal-Print Infinity Scarves
I'm pretty much obsessed with this leopard scarf from Old Navy.
 
Fallen Boho Pants - Vertical
Palazzo pants, I really want to invest in a pair
 
Scary movies are my most favorite thing, especially in October.
 
I so need this MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick.
 
Infused water. It's amazing, and so easy.
 
What are your October obsessions?

We Want to Know Wednesdays

 
1. If you could be any animal what would you be? A Maltese dog. I firmly believe that if they have great owners they in turn have wonderful lives. (at least I know mine do).
 
 
2. What is your favorite color and why? Turquoise. It was the main color for my sorority (ZTA), and it was also my grandmothers favorite color. I can't get enough turquoise stuff, ask my husband.
 
3. If you could only have one meal for a month what would you chose? I would choose my Quorn faux chicken, broccoli, and shells n' cheese.
 
4. What is your dream car? A white Cadillac SRX
 
5. If you could do anything right now, what would you do? I would honestly go back to bed and then spend the day cuddling with my frups and watching the shows saved on my DVR!

This is me, today. I have so many things on my mind, and today is just NOT my day. It's too bad because today happens to be my sweet Mom's birthday. I hope I am out of this funk by tonight. Enjoy your weekend!

A Thursday Tantrum


  With all of this pregnancy surrounding me all day, every day, everywhere, I wanted to write down a few rants. I get it that pregnancy can for some people be a pain in the ass, I understand that some people just have to complain about it. But, why, WHY would you complain to a woman who for three years has been struggling to become pregnant with a healthy baby? I am on the verge of deleting a lot of social media because of these types of women. I would give anything to be up at night because of morning sickness, I'd love to have vomit/poop/pee on me from my child, and I would give anything to have cankles as a result of my growing baby. One thing infertility has taught me, among all the others, is that pregnancy is a blessing, it's truly a miracle, and not something to take for granted. When that days comes that I become pregnant with a healthy child you can bet your ass that I will be loving every minute of it. In my most recent pregnancy, I smiled the first time I got sick, I was so happy and excited that I cried, I remember texting Blake and my Mom. It was the best feeling for me because that meant that I was pregnant.
  This is not a post to bash women who have terrible morning sickness, or to call out anyone on being a bad parent for publishing to the world that their child just pooped all over their new outfit, I am just simply getting a few things off my chest. Women who have not struggled with infertility just cannot understand, and I know that from experience. Not being able to do the one thing your body was designed to do is heartbreaking, and being exposed to women who are ungrateful about their blessings is nauseating.
  This is not a PSA stating that I hate all pregnant women, believe me. Those of you who know and love me can attest to that. This post is me on a no good, very bad day. Thanks for allowing me to vent.

Vitamins






  This is my life. I am taking so many vitamins to improve my fertility. It's ridiculous how many pills I am taking per day. But, I am not complaining, it is so worth it. I will continue taking them even when I finally do become pregnant. They have changed my energy level completely, I am more energized than I ever was before. Here is a list of everything I am currently taking:
  • Folic Acid
  • CoQ13
  • B12
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin E
  • DHEA micronized
  • Prenatals
  • L-Arginine
  • Melatonin
  If you are wondering the dosages you can email me. I am still waiting for my pregnancy hormones to get down to zero before we begin again. We have so much faith that this next cycle will be THE cycle. Your continued prayers are much appreciated.

Weekend Shenanigans

Sami's Shenanigans
 


 
Well, my weekend kicked off with yours truly being awarded teacher of the week! I got to wear the sash pictured above and all this week I have front row parking! Wa-hoo! When I arrived home on Friday I found my beautiful morning glory has grown quite a bit, I am so impressed as it's the only thing I've ever grown, ever. I spent my Friday the 13th at Target buying stuff I don't need only wanted, and I must admit that I was in bed with my eyes shut at 8:45 that night. I didn't get to watch the movie I had planned on or the Ghost Adventures show. Thank God for DVR!
   On Saturday morning I met my best friend Linzie at the country club. We laid out and got some good sun/vitamin D until the Aggie game started at 2:30. We hung out, watched the game, ate, and then it was over. Second night in a row I was in bed before 9! I think my body was just exhausted, and that is fine with me, I obviously needed it.
   Sunday we were lazy. I had to pick up some vitamins and that was the only outing of the day. It was glorious! We thought it was going to rain, no such luck. Sunday evenings are the best, RHONJ and Boardwalk Empire! Sadly, I fell asleep during Boardwalk but will catch up on it later today before BSF. I hope you had a great weekend as well.

Friday The 13th

 
 
Ok, for real, I love scary movies, t.v shows, and dates. I love Friday the 13th. I can't explain how happy it makes me to have a Friday the 13th in the Fall, I am beyond excited. Perfect timing that Insidious 2 comes out today, I am anxious to go see that movie. Friday the 13th reminds me of my childhood and that is probably one reason I like it so much. I can remember staying up all night watching scary movie marathons on USA, and sleeping on the couch bed downstairs with my siblings. Why is it such a big deal? I don't have the answer, maybe because of the movie with Jason, or because it's supposed to be unlucky? Who knows. I hope to spend this evening watching Insidious 2 followed by Ghost Adventures (t.v. show), but we'll see. Wishing you a very happy Friday the 13th!
