Sunday Favorites #10


Nemo: Yes, this lil blizzard postponed my birthday party to next week and it halted all of my plans for the weekend–however, I am so grateful for these few days of relaxation and doing absolutely nothing. I did some blogging, lots of TV watching and barely any cleaning because we had already cleaned my house for the party. So thank you Nemo for some well needed downtime :)

Birthday Shopping Deals: I can’t believe how many shopping deals I got in my inbox for my birthday–I mean I totally realize that it is another way to lure to to shop where I probably wouldn’t otherwise–BUT I am a sucker for free shipping (Especially from Macy’s whose shipping rates are always sky high) and SEPHORA (um free gifts? YES thanks) and more!


Boob Tube:

Smash: I am ridiculously excited that SMASH is back on TV! I love this show, not only because I am a HUGE fan of the arts, but the performances -much like glee–are so GOOD. Most of the give me the goosies! This season they added my girl Jennifer Hudson to the cast and it is just that much sweeter. The most interesting part for me is that they shoot all over my beloved city, usually within 10 blocks of where I work and even had one scene in MY GYM. Trust me, its the little things that excite me :)

Glee: I love me some Glee, not only for the awesome singing and mashups but rather for the clever teen-aged soap opera that keeps me hooked. I like the twists and turns of this season and I appreciate the old graduated characters coming back on the scene permanently. Definitely one of my favorites!

Scandal: Yes. So I was getting a little worried about Scandal, everything was going almost a little too well. The Prez was back to normal in what seemed like 5 minutes, Olivia was finally off the hook (or is she), and BAM Shonda hits us with the left AND right hook at the end of the episode. Why do I feel like I don’t know Fitz all of a sudden…? Where is this all going?! I have to give it to SR she don’t play–I am salivating for more.

  1. Thank you Nellie for including us in your round-up! You rock! :)
    I caught up on Scandal over the weekend, and oh my Lord, I can’t remember the last time I have seen so much awesome packed into one hour of TV. I was exhausted when it was over! 😉 I love that show so much!-Ashley

  2. Downtime is always a plus especially when you don’t have to clean :).

    I really need to catch up on SMASH because I’ve heard so many good things about it.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Hey Nellie, sorry your birthday celebration was postponed but at least you enjoyed some rest and relaxation. I did a little of that yesterday too. I don’t like the new Fitz! He is about to be ruthless teaming up with his beast of a wife. Shonda brings it like no other! I need to watch Smash. I girl from my hometown is on that premier episode, other than that I can’t get into those shows.

  4. Awww! Thank you so much for counting us among your favorites this week! You are too sweet! (and I laughed so hard at the athletic clothing post. SO funny!)
    I have episodes of Smash on my DVR right this minute that I haven’t seen yet! I had NO IDEA that JHud was going to be on the show this season! Whoo Hoo! That was such a smart move. She is PERFECT for the show. I can’t wait to watch this season now!!!

  5. I’m with you. We were supposed to get snowed in this weekend and I was so disappointed when it didn’t happen. Being snowed in guarantees downtime I love it.
