The Bachelor

Okay, so I have been reading rumors on the internet that weird happenings are with the Bachelor. I have been watching this show with great enthusiasm because I liked Jason. I thought he was this great all around good guy and great dad. Now I am reading that the show could be a set up and the girl he really wants isn't the one he picks. I have read that the show has asked him to pick Melissa for better ratings and then he dumps Melissa and proposes to Molly in the second "After the Rose Ceremony". If this is true then I am done with ABC and the Bachelor! I didn't watch for a long time because of the Bachelorette ending with Jen, remember her? And then I was suckered back in with DeAnna and I truly thought Jason was wronged. Now to think they are doing it again!

Maybe I should learn my lesson and quit watching the reality shows, do you think?
Why is it that they suck us in and let us live with them through the TV. I need to get a life and more hobbies!

I hope you all have a great day! Tomorrow we are off to Georgia to watch Amber play in a tournament down there. Hopefully, the weather will be warmer than it is here.

Top Chef

Did anyone see last night's Top Chef on Bravo? The quickfine challenge was preparing seafood to cook(skinning and filleting) and let me tell you, I didn't recognize some of the seafood. The last part of the challenge was between Stefan and Hosea and they had to skin and fillet a fresh water eel. Yes, you heard me right, a fresh water EEL. AND the EEL was still wiggling, yes it was!!! It was disgusting. The things I watch for a little entertainment!

Sadly, I have become and addict to the TV and my favorite shows.

Monday night is the Bachelor and 24 with Jack Bauer. Love Jack Bauer!!!

Tuesday night is the Biggest Loser and I am glad that Joelle was sent home, sorry Carla!

Wednesday night is American Idol and Top Chef.

Thursday night is Gray's Anatomy and Private Practice.

Friday night is Friday Night Lights.

Saturday, well, I don't have a favorite on Saturday.

Sunday night is Army Wives but it isn't on right now. I used to watch Brothers & Sisters but really tired of all the family fighting!! I want them to get along and be friends. Maybe they should rename the show the Fighting Brothers & Sisters.

That about sums up my life in the evenings. Which makes me believe that I need to get a life!! Seriously, I really enjoy these shows and I enjoy them alot!

Anyone else addicted to TV? Send me a comment and let me know your favorite shows. I might discover a new show worth watching, if I can fit it in. Thank God for TiVo.

Super Bowl

I hope everyone had a fun Super Bowl Sunday. It was an exciting game filled with fun commercials and some not so good commercials. We invited some friends over to watch the game with us and the evening was filled with great friends, good food, and an all around good time!

I did think some of the players on the Steelers were mean and rough. Some of the personal fouls were horrible!!! Oh well, I guess that goes with football, such a man sport!

I want to say thank you to Dana from Charmed Designs for the beautiful bracelet. I entered a giveaway for the bracelet and I won!! It arrived in the mail Friday and it is beautiful! I have been viewing her blog for quite some time and I love her jewelry. Check her site for her beautiful baubles!

I need to finish cleaning up after the festivities of last night. So I am off to vacuum and run the dishwasher. Have a great day!
