Fall TV

Edited to add: HOW DID I FORGET GILMORE GIRLS?! I’m the worst. But really, let’s be honest, that’s what I’m looking forward to THE MOST.

Like every other basic chick out there, I am completely obsessed with fall. It’s, in my opinion, hands-down the very best season to ever exist. And one of the many, many reasons why I love fall so much is the slew of new TV shows.


So I looked through all the new shows, watched trailers and decided these are going to be the previews I’ll be tuning in for.

American Housewives (ABC) – Oct. 11/Wednesday’s at 7:30 p.m. – I don’t know about you, but this trailer had me rolling with laughter. I hope it’s as funny as the two-minute preview was!

Designated Survivor (ABC) – Sept. 21/Wednesday’s at 9 p.m. – I love political shows (The West Wing, Madam Secretary, etc.), so I was really intrigued by this show’s premise.

Kevin Can Wait (CBS) – Sept. 19/Monday’s at 7:30 p.m. – I really can’t understand why a 50-something Kevin James is retiring, but the trailer was hilarious and I have a weakness for silly comedies (The Ranch, King of Queens, etc.)

This is Us (NBC) – Sept. 20/Tuesday’s at 9 p.m. – I already hate this show because NBC canceled my beloved Parenthood and put this show out instead, but…I’ll give it a shot because

I’m also looking forward to The Walking Dead (Oct. 23/Sunday’s at 9 p.m.) and Madam Secretary (Oct. 2/Sunday’s at 8 p.m.) this year!

Memorial Day Weekend Wedding

I’ve been behind on the times, you know, because our lives are chaotic and currently in shambles, but I really wanted to write about our Memorial Day weekend. We actually went back to St. Louis because my friend from college was getting married! We arrived a day before the wedding to hang out with family. We went to visit my grandpa’s cemetery to leave a flag (he was in the Army!) and ventured over to Peel Pizza which was nearby.


This place was GOOOOOOOD. We got a couple appetizers, three salads and a few pizzas for our big group to split. If you’re in St. Louis, I promise Peel is worth venturing over the river!


After dinner, because we weren’t fatty enough, we went to Fritz’s…for the best frozen custard.


The pups each got their own doggy cone, which were devoured in seconds.


I think Nala, my parent’s dog, ate hers in one bite, actually.


Okay okay so the real reason we were in St. Louis for Heather and AJ’s wedding! Heather and I met in college and she was my big sister in our sorority. She looked absolutely gorgeous on her big day and we’re so happy to have celebrated with them!



We bonded over many things, but especially our love of St. Louie. Her reception was held downtown with an amazing view of the City Museum! (Which by the way, I just realized I’ve never taken Kevin there which is horrible. That’s going to the top of our Things To Do Once We Move To St. Louis list.)


We ate, we drank and we danced. Did I mention we ate? They had donuts as dessert and no joke, that was the best donut I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. The donuts pictured here are about a third of the actual, whole donut size. Which is why I made this sign (with a napkin and lipstick) so we could eat it in stages.


It was a great long weekend back home celebrating good friends and their marriage!
