Week o' Random

I guess my last post got me all inspired to share some random thoughts/finds/etc. with you guys. You gotta admit, those were the cutest shoes EVER!

So on to my randomness of Monday... I thought I'd share a bit about the TV shows I am currently addicted to. Like crazy addicted. Like if-my-husband-would-let-me-have-a-TiVo-I-would-
  • I love Jon & Kate Plus 8. I watch the new shows on Monday nights at 9:00 PM EST on TLC. There's just something about watching this crazy woman and her submissive husband manage eight children on a daily basis that makes me think I just might be able to do the same thing with two. Someday. Two kids. I'm sure that's not quite the same as eight, but I'm not out of my mind. I'd never want eight kids. I would be happy and content with two--a boy and girl! I might consider three. But that's it. So I guess I love watching this obsessive-compulsive, insanely organized woman and her "whatever you say" husband manage the lives of two almost-8-year-olds and six 4-year-olds. It makes me feel good about my own parenting skills.
  • Project Runway. What is it about this show that I can't get enough of it? Is it the way Tim Gunn says the word "designers?" It certainly isn't Heidi--she gets on my last nerve. I guess it's got something to do with the random bunch of people who are all competing for the same prize. So many different perspectives and personalities to contend with, and an almost certain bout of conflict on each episode. Bring it on!
  • I am a HUGE fan of Big Brother. I am all about the people this season. Jerry? He's old. Renny? She's old and insane. Jessie? Get over yourself. April? You don't deserve to win after letting the whole cast feel you up on the very first episode. Angie? You haven't done anything to irritate me--yet. Dan? I think you're good peeps. Could be one of my top favorites to win it all. Keep playing on the DL! Libra? I just don't have anything nice to say about you so I'll keep quiet. Keesha? You seem somewhat normal but can pull the dumb blond card at times. Michelle? You cry too much and your accent gets on my nerves. Ollie? Not sure how I feel about you just yet. Memphis? Not sure how I feel about you, either, but I don't recall you doing anything to irritate me. Good for you for telling Jerry off for calling you a womanizer.
  • All those crazy Bridezilla and Platinum Wedding shows on WEtv. I just find it so hard to believe grown women actually behave like that. And who really has that much money to blow on a wedding reception? Seriously. It's just not as cool ast you think. Guess I just really like all things wedding. I read lots of wedding blogs. I love recalling my wedding and how hubs and I planned it all in such a short amount of time. I wouldn't have done anything different. It's all about being married, not getting married!
That's good enough for now. I'll have more random to share tomorrow!


  1. Love the random stuff, LOVE the adorable shoes in your last post, love John and Kate plus 8, but.... am anxiously awaiting photos of LO's party! :o)

  2. I love that there's a Jon & Kate marathon on Mondays and Wednesdays. I usually do nothing else :)

  3. I don't know whether to be happy about or embarrassed to say that I haven't seen a single episode of any of those shows. I am suddenly feeling quite disconnected from society. That's not a good place to be when you do what I do. Hmmm.

  4. Yes, dear Joelle... I'm working on the post from LO's birthday. It's taking a bit of time since I'm waiting to get some pics from other folks and make them "blog-friendly." It shall be soon, this I do promise!
