Summer TV

While I may be counting the days until Scandal, Castle and Brooklyn Nine Nine return to TV, I have still managed to find some shows to get hooked on this summer.  Here's what I'm watching:

The Bachelorette

I have read all of Reality Steve's spoilers but I still gotta watch.  Guilty pleasure!

 RHOOC

I finally got caught up on Housewives yesterday.  It's painful to watch Shannon.  I like former Miss Kentucky, Lizzie, a lot but she probably doesn't have enough drama to stick around for long.

Catfish
Okay, my husband totally makes fun of me for watching this show...but then I look over and he's all into it (just like Bravo's Southern Charm... mmmhhmm).  I got hooked on this show awhile back because I totally have an online friend...  Y'all...we "met" when we were 17-18 through his college roommate, who I was dating...  Josh would let Dale use his AOL instant messenger to talk to me (lol). Despite living 4 hours apart back then, we never got around to meeting each other.  This year we both turn 35.  We have stayed in touch all of these years through occasional texting and now on Facebook.  Crazy, right?!

Master Chef
I love Gordon Ramsay.  Love, love, love.  I really enjoy this show because I suck at cooking.  I tend to learn something every time I'm watching...  I'm also hoping Master Chef Junior starts up right after this one ends, like last year. 
This show makes me cry every time.  Chris and Heidi Powell are doing some awesome stuff here.  I like to think that somewhere, someone sees that they can transform too...not just physically but mentally.  Last night's show was an emotional one.  I love that Chris and Heidi are so invested in the people they are training.  They seem like they really care.
Can you tell I'm all about the "reality" shows??  Hey, it's summer! :P
What are you watching?

Exploring Charleston #1

We have been living in Charleston for a little over a year now but have not even begun to really explore the city.  There are so many places I want to visit and restaurants I want to try.  My mom was in town this weekend so we did a little walking around and tried two places on my to-go list.

 We happened upon the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist while walking around.  My kids said it was 'creepy'. I thought it was very interesting and the stained glass was pretty amazing.
 I always see some of my fav Charleston area bloggers posting pics on Insta from Kitchen 208 on King St.  Finally got to try it.  There was a loong wait for food but it was pretty good. I had the Turkey Shoot.

We then headed up King Street to try Christophe Chocolatier which located off King on Society.  We tried the Opera Cake:
 and several macaron.  The one below is coconut.  It was delish.
 What are your favorite restaurants in Charleston?!  Anyone know of any good Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants here??

1. How much time do you spend on Social Media a day?…be honest

Maybe an hour a day?  I loooove Instagram so I'll scroll through that a few times a day when I'm waiting in the school pick-up line.  I also spend a little bit of time tweeting giveaways because you can't win if you don't enter! :)

2. How long were you reading blogs before you started a blog?

Not very long. My friend Tasha introduced me to a couple of blogs and then asked if I wanted to start one with her.  Thus this blog was originally called Pink and Green Moms.  Tasha moved on to other websites and projects and I have sort of kept this one up.

3. What is your favorite kind of cupcake?
I love the Miss Princess cupcakes at Gigi's....I pretty much love all cupcakes though.

4. Do you eat fast food? If so, what is your favorite?
Heck yes, I love some fast food. Especially the #1 at Wendy's.
 
5. What is the most random thing someone would find in your purse?
Outlet plug covers.
They've been in there since we moved to our house several months ago. I ran around on the last day in our apartment and took them all out and just threw them in my purse.

6. What is the weirdest TV show you watch?
I don't think I watch any "weird" shows but I have been accused of being an old lady because for years I have watched:
 every Monday-Friday. Can't miss Pat, Vanna and Alex!

2. What is your favorite food pin?
This Pina Colada dip from ValsoCal is the shiiiiizzznit.  Find it here!

3. What is your favorite wedding pin?

I've never pinned anything for a wedding...mainly because, I got married before Pinterest was cool and I never had a fancy wedding. My husband was in the military so we did a quick ceremony at the court house!

4.  What is your favorite DIY/craft pin?
Someday I will do this to my bathroom...and maybe my kitchen! It looks like such an easy and inexpensive project! Find the pin here!

5. What is your favorite quote/verse/lyric pin?


 This always cracks me up because my Field Training Officer always used to say, "Don't look at me in that tone of voice" whenever I'd give him one of my infamous looks.


6. Share one more random pin you love.

I recently pinned this Sloane Ranger crossbody...  Isn't it the cutest?!
