Too Much TV & My Weekly Money Check-Up!

It's premiere week! I'm such a TV junkie it's ridiculous. While my favorites are all the reality tv shows, I have a weakness for sitcoms... but can you blame me? I'm a child of the 90s! I can't wait for Cougar Town and Modern Family, and those boys from the Big Bang Theory always make me giggle.
Last night though was dancing with the stars. I love how varied the cast is this season. Everyone from Florence Henderson of Brady Bunch fame to The Situation from Jersey Shore. Brandy was absolutely fabulous, and Kyle Massey from the Disney Channel definitely surprised me. Did anyone else notice though how pigeon toed The Situation seems?

Does anyone else have any favorites they're looking forward to?

cardigan - Smart Set (winter 2010)
tank - Dynamite (summer 2010)
cropped trousers - Mexx (summer 2010)
wedges - Aldo (gift, bday 2010)

And since I missed My Pretty Pennies' Weekly Money Check Up Yesterday:

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on a plaid shirt from Smart Set for $30.

2. Today I feel great about money. It's pay day and I got a raise! Go team me!

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was go to the Papanack Zoo with my best friend from high school, Tara & her friends for her 24th bday.

4. I will consider this week a success if I master the new job I'm being assigned at work. Finally a little more of a challenge!

5. The thing I am most looking forward to about this autumn is going to a pumpkin patch and grabbing a few to carve. I've NEVER been, but I think it's a super cute idea.

6. Other frivolous spending I did this week was on the cutest socks ever from Garage for $5, and 2 pairs of shoes from myspringshoes.com for $27, which are both being returned.


  1. I am the most horrible person ever at keeping up with shows on television. I usually watch the Food network and am always one season behind in my favorite shows. So the more exciting release dates for me are the "out on rental" ones! I just finished Season 4 of Dexter and am working on the final season of Lost and the most recent season of House. My boyfriend REALLY wants us to start watching the Big Bang Theory though!

    Whew! Sorry about my ramblings. Love this look. Your trousers are just as spectacular as I remember them being. Congrats on your raise!! xx

  2. I'm usually terrible about missing my "shows" because of class or just forgetfulness. I'm currently catching up on True Blood. I watched the House season premiere last night. Tonight is Rachel Zoe's season finale. Tomorrow is Criminal Minds season premiere, and Thursday is Bones season premiere. I think that's all of them that I've managed to keep up with. OH! I also try to catch Project Runway, provided it doesn't run into Bones.

    I love your graphic print top. It's super chic. Your outfit looks so effortless.

  3. I love Sheldon and Leonard and Howard and Raj! Of course, Penny too!

    Love Big Bang and love your outfit! As in craaazy love Big Bang! =)



  4. Super cute trousers. Absolutely love them and sheen!

  5. Love this look! So pulled togther and chic. The highwaisted trousers look great on you.


  6. Congrats on your new position :)
    We are two weeks behind on season premieres - meaning that TODAY they will start showing. I personally cannot wait for Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy, Drop Dead Diva AND of course I cannot wait for Sheldon's smart humor in BB Theory !


I'd love to hear from you!
