Fall Fridays are the BEST.  I love the changing weather, the turning of the leaves, Friday night football and of course, the end of the work week!

Hubs says it best:  our society totally has it backwards.  We should work two days (two EXTREMELY productive, long days!) and be off 5.

Oh, a girl can dream.

Here are my faves for the week.... enjoy!


Oh lord.  Apocalypse is here and our world is overrun with zombies.  You must build up your ruined city, put your survivors to work making stuff and kill the zombies.

Yes, I'm totally serious.  I'm completely addicted to this stupid app - No Zombies.

The kicker?  It's all my 2 year old grandson's fault.

Little guy actually put this on my phone but I found it in Chicago with the fam and cannot get enough of it.  It's so stupid... and I love it!


Ah, I love fall (I can't say that enough).  Fave season!  Time to break out the hoodies!  Here's a sweet little number from North Face that I think needs to accidentally jump into my closet.


Bring on the BBQ!  The American Royal Barbecue is an opening event of the historic American Royal and the season finale for the competitive barbecue circuit. Spreading over 20 acres in Kansas City’s Stockyards District, and with 545 teams competing in four meat categories, The Royal is the largest barbecue contest in the world.
I landed a SWEET ass job as Party of the Year judge (with my fellow G Girls).  Bring on the mayhem!

Although I'm still glued to the tv when the likes of Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice and Dancing with the Stars, I'm super loving some of the new shows!  Thank god for DVR - I have to record everything and watch it back either late at night or early in the mornings.  I need more time for tv!

Here are my faves (in no particular order):

Last Resort

The show is about the renegade crew of a United States Navy Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, the fictional USS Colorado (SSBN-753), that receives an order to launch nuclear missiles at Pakistan. When Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) asks for confirmation, he is relieved of command. His second in command, Lt. Commander Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman), also questions the orders and the vessel is fired upon by the USS Illinois and two nuclear strikes are also made on Pakistan.
Realizing that they have been declared enemies of their own country, they seek refuge on the island of Sainte Marina (a fictional French island located in the Indian Ocean), commandeer a NATO communications facility, and declare a 200 mile exclusion zone around the island. When bombers are sent to attack the submarine and island, Captain Chaplin launches a nuclear missile towards the USA to impress upon them that he is serious.

Now the crew must find a way to prove their innocence and find out who set them up so that they can return home.

Oh - and I get to stare at Scott Speedman.  I miss Felicity!

The Neighbors

Who wouldn't love an alien show? 

The series, set in New Jersey, revolves around a family that has relocated to a gated townhouse community called "Hidden Hills". Upon their arrival, they discover that the entire community is populated by residents from another planet. These aliens have adopted as their own, the names of sport celebrities, receive nourishment through their eyes and mind by reading books rather than eating, and cry out green goo from their ears. They have been stuck on Earth for 10 years, still awaiting instructions to return home.

666 Park Avenue

Yikes - this show is CREEPY!  It's about the devil.... not saying anymore!

And the new one coming this week:  Nashville

A fading Nashville superstar is forced to team up with a teen sensation or face the loss of her tour and promotion of her latest records.  Fade to Hayden Panettiere.  WOW - she isn't that little girl on Remember the Titans anymore!


Ah, this just screams fall to me.  I love big bulky sweaters, cute jeans and sassy boots.  Bring it on!


Oh YUM!!  I've been making White Trash Popcorn for years but this just takes the cake.  What an awesome mixture of halloween yummos!  Candy corn, which chocolate, reeses pieces.  Heaven.


This is totally me... I correlate music to almost everything that someone says, in some way, shape or form.

Have a great Friday, friends!
