My Viewing & Listening Pleasures

I have a few. Don't we all?  

TV Shows:

I'm a fan of The Real Housewives. 

I'll admit it. I love the drama & their crazy lives! Of course along with their extensive shoe collection, perfect makeup, prom hair, beautiful homes, expensive cars...I could go on and on.

I'm kind of over that Bethenny is off of the show {I watch her shows too}

My husband and I don't agree on many TV shows. When we find one we both like, I feel like we struck gold!  

Our faves include:

Modern Family

It seemed like everyone I knew was talking about it, so we got the older seasons on Netflix last year, fell in love with the characters & caught up to the current season.  I cannot tell you how many times Joe & I stop and rewind what the characters say because it was so funny, we wanted to laugh again, OR because we were laughing so hard, we missed what was said next.  There's a little bit of ourselves in the characters, which make them so real to us.  Phil & Claire are HYSTERICAL.  We still refer to the "Wedge Salad" because, it happens all.the.time. :-)  If you're not watching this show, you are definitely missing out!  Jay (the old Al Bundy) is perfect along with his hottie patottie wife Gloria~so envious of her curves~ and her son. And of course, who doesn't love Cam & Mitchell???


Which I have to thank Emily from, In the Life of Emily because she raved about it, I decided to give it a try.
So happy I did!!

Its storyline is so far out there, what's not to love? 

Playboy Club
Who doesn't like a seductive bunny who may or may not have killed someone the first episode?  I love their throwback hairstyles, music & fun bunny costumes.  It's entertainment to say the least.

And sadly, Jersey Shore. We can't help it...yea buddy!!

When I'm not sitting in front of the  TV, I will have on The Today show, or I'll turn on The Food Network or The Cooking Channel.  I especially love Giada at Home, Down Home with the Neely's, 5 Ingredient Fix...It's astonishing how much I can learn from just listening while cooking in the other room!

My love of music ranges...a lot.  Currently, my favorite album is Watch the Throne.  I'm not gonna lie, I feel pretty bad ass bumpin this cd in m Envoy haha.  Hubby loves rap/hip hop {mostly old school} but this album is hot. 

I love country, pop, classical, hip hop, disco & even jazz. 

a little Brad Paisely {and our wedding dance}

somethin fun to dance to!

Love me some disco~get down!  

Joey & I have been to the ugly disco for the past 3 years. It's a fundraiser and a huge event with live music and dancing, while dressing up like the 60-70's!

Wish we could do this every day. Such a happy little song.

When we went to Vegas, the fountains played this at the Bellagio~it was our last night there and it mad me a little was also the last song at our wedding we danced to.

If I'm stressed or just want to be in a chilled mood/zone, I'll listen to jazz. 
My favorite musician is Chris Botti.

If I'm not listening to the Food Network from the other room, I'll have one of these stations playing on Pandora.  Sometimes I even play music according to what we're eating...yes, I've been known to salsa around as I'm preparing some delicious tacos!

and this of course, was my summer songgg!

I'm really digging Adele's latest hit too..

I figured I'd just share a few of my favorites.  Any other shows/songs I should be exposing myself to?  I'm pretty open to trying new or different ones, so I'd love to hear from you!  


  1. I wish we were friends in real life! I love this list--we have a lot in common. Modern Family is one of my favorite shows too (second only to Vampire Diaries). I like that it's fun humor and not mean spirited.

    I also have an eclectic taste in music. I like hip hop, dance, pop country, and yes even disco. That disco party looks like a blast! I recommend Natalia Kills's new album "Perfectionist." It's pop with a gothic twist (songs include "Zombie," "Wonderland," and "Kill My Boyfriend." Fun album for running on the treadmill.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I am obsessed with music and love everything you listed! In fact, I'm listening to Brad *right now* -- What a beautiful wedding song! I should really do a post like this... the closest one I have published is this one: Musical Reverie -- I'll start making my list and link back to you:)

    PS: Thanks for the comment on my post today -- I used to watch Giada ALL THE TIME, but haven't in forever because I'm busy when her shows come on:( I think I might have to DVR 'em!

  3. Love me some Modern Family!!

  4. Zac and I LOVE Modern Family (I just started watching it--and I had been missing out!) and Jersey Shore (it's hard for us to find shows to watch together too).


I'd love to hear from you. Each & every comment is so very much appreciated!! :)
