Happy Monday sweet friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had to let Katie go back to school. It’s really bittersweet. This may sound weird, but our hearts are full that she was sad to leave. We never want her to be sad, but it’s nice to know that she enjoys her time with us. She’s got a really hard semester in front of her and she’s not looking forward to it, so there was that too. Saturday and Sunday were gray and rainy so we just gave in and had a do nothing weekend, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
This age is so fun. I remember when I was Katie’s age and mom and I would get these looks from people like, ‘are they sisters or mother and daughter?’ How cool is it that God saw fit to give me a best friend for the rest of my life? You gotta’ love that!
OKAY, so now it’s time for me to entertain you. If you know me, you know I love to make people laugh. The funny thing (no pun intended…LOL) is that I hate to be up in front of people. Even after 30 years together, Kent still can’t figure it out. HA! I guess it’s good to keep him guessing. ?
I’m joining the ladies of the The Blended Blog to talk about all things entertainment related. Some of them aren’t really my jam, so I’ll just cruise right past them, but I’ve got others to share, so away we go.
Books I have read multiple times. I’ve made no secret about the fact that an avid reader I am not. I do well to read 1-2 books a year. Yes, you read that right. Reading puts me right to sleep unless I’m by the pool and then I can read all day. Crazy.
Favorite book/author of all time. When I do read it’s some kind of romance. I really like Elin Hilderbrand books and some Nickolas Sparks books too.
Favorite TV show to binge. FRIENDS! I can watch Friends on a loop all day long and oh how I wish they’d have a reunion show.
Favorite new-ish TV show. Katie introduced us to the Great British Baking Show and we watched a couple of seasons while she was home. Here’s one thing we really noticed about it. All of the people are much nicer to each other than on the American versions.
Favorite Movie of all time. I can’t pick just one. I have several that I really love to watch over and over, and I bet you’ll be shocked that they are all rom-coms. #notreally #shockedthatis
First concert. Alabama and Restless Heart in the late 80’s at Starwood Ampitheatre in Nashville. A group of us went and had a ball sitting out on the lawn. Would you believe it’s the only concert I’ve really been to?
Ultimate concert. I’d love to see Justine Timberlake, Michael Buble, Blake Shelton or Florida Georgia Line. If someone could get all 4 of them to perform together, well that’d be just dandy!
Favorite music. 99% off the time you’ll find me listening to country music, but I also love some good 70’s, 80’s & 90’s.
How do I listen? Alexa. How else? We have an Echo downstairs and a dot in the bathroom. I’m all to happy to boss her around…”Alexa, play country music.” The Echo Dot is on sale for $29.99 (40% off). Valentines Day is just around the corner…just sayin’.❤️
Have you jumped on the Alexa bandwagon? I need to make better use of ours, but I’m forgetful and just don’t think about it. My friend Carrie (Curly Crafty Mom) just did a great post on how to set up and use your Echo Dot.
Have a great week friends as we dive into 2019.
