TV is My Friend

Well, this past weekend was everything I wanted it to be.  Full of wine, TV, relaxation, and time with my couch.  I also accidentally went shopping and spent too much money, but that’s typical.  It really wasn’t my fault though, I had a $100 off coupon to Coach that expired on July 31, and I couldn’t let it go to waste.  I bought this, I really did need a black purse that can be used as a clutch and dressy bag for weddings and such.

I also bought that new Frizz Ease three-day straight crap, which I am in the process of reviewing, and from what I can tell it’s not crap at all.  I used it yesterday, and then ventured out in the 99 degree heat to run errands, eat lunch, etc, it’s still super straight today even after sleeping.  I’ll update you all tomorrow on the progress.  Yes, I will take one for the team and not wash my hair for a few days.

On Saturday night I discovered Netflix had release all of Mad Men to their instant queue, and yesterday I spent about 9 hours watching it with Adrienne.  I officially have an obsession, his name is Jon Hamm, aka Don Draper, aka sexy man beast.  However, did you know he’s only 5’11” ?  He looks so much larger than that on TV, it must be the shoulders…. mmm the shoulders, so broad and manly.  Oh, sorry, I got distracted.  Uh, thank god I get to see my boyfriend in three days, that’s all I have to say about that.  Although it was funny to hear the random comments popping out of mine and Adrienne’s mouth throughout the day.  Example:

Don to his daughter: “It’s ok, you can ride me around the living room.” (she wanted to go horse back riding with Betty)
Me: “I’ll ride you around the living room like a horse.”
Adrienne: “Mmmmhmmmm.”

Please send help, or men, the Mad Men marathon continues tonight.

I also watched the TLC special on Nick Lachey and Vanessa Manillo’s wedding, and at first it just made me miss Newlyweds, but the two of them as a couple grew on me.  Their wedding in the BVI looked really fun also.  Although, if I was interpreting conversations correctly, I don’t think she does a certain thing that men typically always want done.  Poor guy, first he marries Jess who wouldn’t give it up until marriage, and now he can’t get something else done.  Anyone else watch?  Did you interpret that also?

Alright, I’m out, I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

  1. I watched some of Mad Men on Netflix too! Thank goodness for their instant que–I got really tired of waiting for those stupid mad men DVD’s to arrive.

  2. I really need to get into Mad Men…I hear such good things about it.

  3. Love me some Mad Men. 🙂 I can’t wait for the new season, it’s so far away. 😦 The bag is super chic!

  4. I miss Jon Hamm. I need my fix! And I miss newlyweds, too. I wish those two had made it, but somehow he came out on top. Good for him

  5. I love that purse! It’s really cute. I’ve always wanted to watch Mad Men. I haven’t got around to yet. I loved Newlyweds. I thought Nick and Jess were so cute together. I’m not a Vanessa Manillo fan.

  6. I let a Coach coupon go to waste last month and I was so mad! I did go torture my credit card at Nordstrom yesterday and wound up with two pairs of Michael Kors sandals that I LOVE.
    I was so excited that they released Mad Men! John Hamm is truly a beastly sex god. I only have two episodes left until I have to wait for the 5th season. Waaah.
    Oh, and I suck at that thing that guys want. It’s sad for them.

  7. I have a coach coupon to use too – eek. I wonder if you can use them at coach outlets? Hmmm.

    I love Mad Men and have been watching on Netflix, too!!

    I haven’t seen their wedding special – I loved the newlyweds. What won’t she do? LOL

  8. Jon Hamm went to Mizzou. Yes, us Mizzou kids will brag about him and Brad Pitt all day. We really know how to breed them… :p

  9. I watched the wedding too, and I just kept thinking about Newlyweds. I loved that show.

  10. a. John Hamm is my jam. (yay for rhyming) I refuse to believe the fact he is only 5’11 and will forever in my mind stack in at a manly 6’2 as to be able to throw me over his shoulder in a moments notice.
    b. Damn coach coupons, I try to throw them out as soon as they arrive in the mail to avoid over-spending but that bag is pretty adorable.
    c. I totally watched that special and I kind of love them together. And I thought the same thing about how she won’t do that thing and I’m still confused by the logic of it all.

    • Yes, I’m with you on the size of Jon Hamm. I wish I could throw them out, I feel like it’s throwing out money! Good, I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed.

  11. I can’t believe you’re just discovering Mad Men! Better late than never. Jon Hamm is so sexy.

    I need to try that hair stuff. I hate straightening my hair.
