Day 2 - Commenting Challenge




Well today's topic for Jenna's Commenting Challenge is:  What's your favorite TV show/series/reality show? If you don't watch TV, what about a favorite movie or book series? 

Having a 2 year old certainly limits some of the TV watching that goes on in my house.  I mean if we get serious, I probably watch Disney Jr. just as much as I watch ABC or CBS.  But, I do have a few favorite shows that are on my DVR so I can watch in my "down-time".  Here's a quick run down:
  • Amazing Race
  • Duck Dynasty
  • Next Food Network Star
  • Chopped
  • Deadliest Catch
  • Pretty Little Liars
Can y'all tell that I enjoy cooking shows?  I used to be a huge One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and Vampire Diaries fanatic, but OTH and GG are off the air, and VD just doesn't interest me anymore.   

I'm also a huge reader.  I love to read.  Before I had Emmalee you could rest assured that my nightly routine involved a nice hot bath, glass of wine, and a good book.  Those were the days.  Since motherhood encroached upon me, reading has become a favorite pastime, but I still try to sneak in a chapter or two when I can.  

Some of my favorite books/authors are:
  • John Grisham - I grew up wanting to be a lawyer, and even worked at a law firm for a little while, so I love legal/crime novels.  I'm just a sucker for them. 
  • Mary Higgins Clark - I haven't read anything from her in a while, but she is still a favorite. 
  • Karen Kingbury - I love her novels!  
  • East of Eden - John Steinbeck - in my opinion, this might be one of the greatest classic novels of all time. 
  • The Twilight Saga - Yes, I'ill admit that I loved the Twilight Saga books, and the movies.  And if you enjoyed them, then read The Host.  Stephanie Meyer did a great job on writing that one too. 
Do you have any other authors that I need to reading?

Hi! Visiting from Jenna's!

I love GG when it was on!! Sad it is NO more. I to like VD in the beginning but it failed to keep my attention.

I love Karen Kingsbury too..I've been a little disappointed in her latest books but loved the Baxters! :)

Love everything, books and movies, about twilight. So the host is good? Might have to check that out. :) Thanks! Nice to "meet" you!

Shamefully, my kindle is filled with cheesy free romance novels at the moment! LOL.

First of all I love your blog! Mine needs a makeover so trying to find someone who can do it! Also, your daughter is adorable and I love all the same shows! The Hubby and I watch Duck Dynasty, and pretty much all Food Network shows :) I also watched every episode of OTH and Vampire Diaries but feel it's been blah lately! We have a lot in common :) Newest follower!

I'm here from Jenna's!

I still love Vampire Diaries. Maybe that's all because of Ian Somerhalder. He is definitely my celebrity crush and my hubby knows it!

I loved One Tree Hill while it was on. Brooke was my favorite! Never really follows PLL.

Nice to meet you!
