"i'm sorry, what?" wednesday

kevin jonas was on RHONJ….. 
as a contractor. building houses. 

um…. I'm sorry, what ?? 

did the band breaking up, and you being stuck with your new jersey kardashian monotone voice bride and her family make you go a little crazy?  or are you trying to suddenly seem as manly as your brother? 

I know he has done nothing lately except the ridiculously dumb (cough :: you know I watched it.)  Kevin + Dani show on E!, but he is A JONAS BROTHER.  He should be RICH.  And he's a boring one that is well behaved, so you know he isn't blowing his money on….. well…. blow or booze or anything the other moron disney kids like Miley are.  

so truly I ask…..

also, I stopped watching RHONJ except for the reunions a few years ago because it just got to be too much for me.  I suppose it was the only show that made me feel like even I have my limits for watching this stuff.  what is the new season like with the twins and dina being back? the new members confuse me to death in the commercials and what I see on my boyfriend Andy Cohen's show WWHL. 

Amanda Bynes is back in the news.
YAYYYY!!!! How I missed her so!!!! 
She got arrested for yet another DUI
where's the mug shot people? or any pics? show me the money!

however other reports are saying it wasn't alcohol….. it was Adderall.
Adderall she was prescribed. 
I'm sorry…... What?? 

to college kids everywhere,
you're screwed!!!!
 adderall was as prominent and prescribed when I was in college as hangovers and girls wearing nike gym shorts with a sorority tee….. 
I'm sure she was mixing it with other illegal substances or some crazy pills, but otherwise all those kids in the library at finals week better be careful. 

also getting a DUI this week ….. Michael Phelps.
you all are just MORONS. 
pay someone to drive you if you're drinking! or shut your pie hole! its pretty simple!

this recipe is a new favorite in our house.
but then again, anything in a casserole dish is always a win to me. 
we originally made it a few weeks ago, but it actually is perfect for the arrival of the cooler fall temperatures. 
and for those of you that don't like stuffed peppers,  I think you're weird because what is there to dislike - it's pretty basicdon't immediately assume this recipe isn't your thang; my husband hates stuffed peppers and LOVED this.

:: wedding fashion ::

we had another amazing wedding weekend this weekend. 
after some slip ups on Friday, 
we made it out on Saturday and flew home to Atlanta for our closest family friends second wedding of the year. 
the wedding + the bride were stunning!   
photo stolen on instagram 

I wore one of my favorite Nordstrom finds.
This Like Mynded dress is super comfortable, can be dressed up or down, and is THE MOST AMAZING PRICE.  
It looks so great you would never expect the price at all.
 my best friend, the maid of honor, who I saw for the first time with her gorgeous baby bump!!! 
(I cried four times)

It also is now 50% off, making it under $50!!!! 
it's too good not to snatch up!! 

This was the second wedding I've worn it too and it definitely wins for the most comfortable wedding dress of the year, and also ranks as one of the dresses I've gotten the most compliments on. 

I had a spray tan for the first wear of the dress for a wedding last month. 
(my first one, and I have to say I enjoyed it, but then felt even worse about my pale skin when it wore off) 

third wedding weekend in a row continues next weekend,
and then one more to go before we complete the #yearoftheweddings 
 I'm sad it'll be over :( 
  I love weddings and it's been such a fun and exciting year for so many people in our lives and great to see everyone so often.  

hope you had a great weekend!!!!

coffee talk

discuss amongst ya-selves…… 
It's like the TV Gods KNEW we moved into a new place this week 
and coincided it with the premiere week of all the TV shows.
The TV timing….. It's just been too good to be true.  
So thank you, TV Gods. 

Monday night, our first night alone in the house, the season premiere of Big Bang Theory… the #1 show we watch together.  

AND this week was the season finale of Big Brother, 

the greatest summer series that gets me through the summer hiatus of every other show. . 


side note: when my friend, who is as Bravo obsessed as anyone I know, got married a few weeks ago and went on her honeymoon, it was the only hiatus for my boyfriend Andy Cohen's WWHL.  It premiered right when she returned.  Coincidence? I THINK NOT. 

I am way to into Dancing With The Stars this season.
An embarrassing amount of into it. 
I blame it on my mom Nance Pants being in town the week before the move to help us pack.  She was here for over a week staying with us 
(my husbands dream!!!!! what a lucky son in law!!! TWO OF ME!!!!!) 
my husband is one of four boys….. needless to say he did not grow up around a lot of chatter….. 
so we made sure to be quiet and let him decompress when we got home from work every night. 
so we showed him what he was missing his whole life by not being around women who never stop talking.

I would come home from work and we would immediately order food and talk about what we were about to watch. 
Or what we were currently watching.  
Or what we watched the night before, like WWHL, after we moved from the couch to our separate bedrooms after 10 PM so we hadn't discussed yet. 

But enough about my crazy-thrilling-exciting life…..
back to DWTS……
I seriously love it.  And it's so raunchy sometimes I can't believe it is a family show! And Tom Bergeron is hi-larious. I love him.  
But you know who I can't stand? Erin Andrews.  I'm starting a "Bring Back Brooke Burke Charvet" petition because seriously ERIN IS HORRIBLE.  

And HOW has she been interviewing people on television for years???? 

(the following to be read super fast and dramatically while flailing hands in the air ) :: She stutters constantly and she can't understand any of the jokes Tom makes and can't come up with anything to say after people answer her question from her damn notecard and she knocks people in the chin with her microphone!!! 
I have a horrible fear of speaking in public and even I could ask better questions and be wittier than she is.  
Who else is watching DWTS? Leave your comments and tell me who you like and if you can't stand Erin Andrews either. 
and please tell me, is her voice not like nails on a chalkboard???  
Ugh…. once again, my deep man voice is even better than hers!!! 

speaking of DWTS, look how much taller stacy keibler is than her husband/fiance/guy that got her preggo five seconds after george clooney dumped her. 

Huge news.
The Peoples Couch premieres october 2nd
dear tv gods, please cast me on the peoples couch. amen. 

but WAIT.
 it gets better.
I just googled to get a picture for this post and THIS CAME UP.

Darla's boyfriend from Little Rascals and Full House guy that sings the obnoxious I'm a yankee doodle dandy you could never forget

so far this post is about me interviewing people on DWTS and me being cast on The People's Couch. 
 But truly… I deserve to be on The People's Couch…. I excel at sitting on couches talking to myself about what I am watching.  

this commercial is my favorite thing ever
I have been rewinding it every time I see it and singing the song.

this commercial scares the hell out of me.

I am so excited to see Gone Girl that I am strongly considering going to re-read the book.  I truly have never felt so strongly about a book being the greatest damn thing since sliced bread.  The movie will pale in comparison I'm sure, like most "based on" movies do, but it's going to be so great. 

ALSO if you are going to see This Is Where I Leave You, read the book first - it's a quick, great read. 

I haven't been inside a movie theatre in three and half years….
so this is a big deal.
literally…. the last movie I saw in a theatre was Bridesmaids…. and that is the only one I've seen in 4+ years in a theatre.  what is wrong with me? 

mazel of the week : 

ps. SCANDAL is back tonight.  
break out the vino baby. 
maybe I'll drink red instead of pinot grigio in her honor? 

and I think I need to watch How To Get Away With Murder…. the 97th viewing of the commercial where she draws on the chalkboard and puts down the chalk and says "and THAT is how you get away with murder" has solely convinced me. 

as always, ignore my own blatant grammatical errors whilst I make fun of others poor grammar during coffee talk on a weekly basis.  
#hypocrite  #sorryimnotsorry
I write these posts late at night while simultaneously watching Bravo, taking snapchats of my snoring husband, and making to do lists of everything I was supposed to do and didn't do that day and likely won't do the next day either.  or the day after that.
