Reality TV and other Guilty Pleasures (Vol. II)


When I’m in this frame of mind I just want to forget about everything and watch shows that have no meaning whatsoever, to float away on a raft to another place, and perhaps just laugh my rear-end off.

A few months ago, my friend Lorrie Gartman wrote a post entitled “Guilty Pleasures – The Bachchelorette and other Breaks From Realty”. I’ve decided to share my own and call it “Reality TV and other Guilty Pleasures” (Volume II).

So, with that in mind – here are a few of my favorite reality shows and guilty pleasures:

  1. The Bachelorette – Monday nights – I have a standing date with my friend and neighbor Lorrie. We have the best time watching this dumb, unrealistic show and I must admit, we rag them all! (FUN)

  2. Food Network – I love watching anything on the Food Network. I never have to think of anything in regard to caregiving whatsoever! (don’t hate me for that, I need a distraction)

  3. I love most shows on the History Channel, Discovery Channel and a few news shows that make me say “what?”

  4. I love watching The Closer on Sunday nights with Nick and sometimes going for ice cream

  5. Did I mention comedy shows? LUV

  6. Cooking – To me, cooking is one of my favorite and most relaxing things to do. I love trying new recipes (Nick doesn’t always appreciate that and says I should stick to what I know best)

  7. The Pool – this is one of my favorite things to do – relax at the pool. I don’t think I’ve ever been a real “pool person” but more of a “beach bum” having been raised very close to the Gulf of Mexico. Maybe living in the Midwest and having such lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng Winters will do that to you

  8. I love hanging with friends, going to movies, spur of the moment beer with my neighbors, quiet nights reading, and skyping with my family

Those are just a few things. What are some of your favorites? I can’t wait to hear them.
