three years!

Happy Anniversary to by hubby! Can't believe we've been married three years, and known each other five! Thanks for putting up with all my crap. I love you!



my dad's more ethical than me

Dad: I want you to delete a song from my Spotify playlist.

Me: Which song?
Dad: Jason Aldean, Dirt Road
Me: Why? I love that song!
Dad: He talks about having an open container.
Me: That's very responsible of you, dad.


attempting to quit tv

Hi, my name is Rachael and I am a TV-aholic. I love TV. I love it more than movies. I love seeing how the writers have the challenge of making an interesting storyline out of the same characters and premise every week. I love comparing television to real life events. My friend Anna works in the TV biz in LA and I love "talking shop" with her about the industry.

But all good things must come to an end. Just as I had to give up Facebook partially because it was a time-suck, I must give up some of my shows. Here is a list of shows I watched last year, and I crossed off the ones I will stop watching this season. Some shows are in their last season so I will finish the series, and some have become a little too inappropriate and I feel I should cut them out.

Brooklyn 99


Pretty Little Liars (has a winter/summer season)
New Girl 
Mindy Project

Modern Family
Nashville (watching with my dad)

Parks and Rec (last season)
How To Get Away With Murder (watching with my dad)
Parenthood (last season, watching with my dad)



What about you? Do you watch too much TV? What are the shows you refuse to give up? Mine is Pretty Little Liars. I must find out who A is! :-)


mountain trip

This weekend we are babysitting our nieces in their home of Helen, Ga. It's always nice to see them, they are so sweet and fun. An added bonus is my brother-in-law Chris is bringing my nephews Myer and Wesley. They are going to camp out by the river. It will be Wesley's (6 mo) first camping trip and Myer's (2 years) second. Hoping for some great fall weather!

Do you have any fun fall trips planned? I would love to hear.
