Mrs. Me

Let me start by saying that I love my husband, and I love hanging out with him. That said, I need a little "me" time every once in awhile. It is so great to get home after a long day at work, heat up leftovers, grab a glass of wine, and catch up on my favorite TV shows. No interruptions, no "is there something you and I can both watch" (long sigh) comments, just quiet and indulgent "me" time.

Can you relate?

Here are a few of my current favorites.

The Hills (only watching because it's the last season)


A picture from when LC was the star (miss those days!)


The City (Whitney Port makes it easy to be in her corner)


The Bachelorette (the craziest cast of men I've ever seen)


Jerseylicious (holding me over until Jersey Shores starts)



And my new favorite . . . Downtown Girls (the star Shallon did an interview with Lemons and Laundry here)

  3. Gotta love the reality TV -- especially "The Hills." And I also take some serious pleasure in alone time!

  4. I watch your top 3 shows, and just started watching Downtown Girls because of your interview! Shallon is hysterical! Which guys are you liking on the Bachelorette? My two faves are Frank and Roberto!

  5. Is it terrible that the Chef and I both watch the City? I'm on my own with the Hills though...it's, sadly, gone down the hills sans Lauren (in my opinion).

    Hey, how's the Bachelorette? After the Jason scandal I signed off...but I am all kinds of all over the City! Oh Whitney.

  9. Love the first three!! Just caught up on the Bachelorette last night. I usually get my "me" time while the girls are napping in the afternoon, so it works out. Glad you get your "me" time too. :)

  14. As much as he hates to admit it I think my husband enjoys watching The Hills, The City, and The Housewives of NY & NJ with me. Just don’t tell him I said that. ; )

  15. I can totally relate, Marcie! My husband works all the time and although I miss him, I really love having my alone time. I'll catch up with friends, watch my shoes (I'm watching the Bachelorette too), eat whatever I want for dinner (sometimes this means cheese, crackers, and ice cream), etc.

  16. You are right, you need some alone time to catch up on stuff that you just need for you, with your food in tow...I love watching mindless TV too...

    XOXO

  19. Real Housewives is my me time...although sometimes I drag the hubs along for the ride cuz I don't like to yell at the tv alone. HA!

  20. haha I can definitely relate! Reality Tv is so addicting (even though it's "trash"). I've recently become addicted to the bachelorette and the hills/ city is always so catty and good!

  21. I completely agree, although I did get my boyfriend a little attached to Gossip Girl. I indulge in The Hills, The City, SYTYCD.. and I think I might watch Jersey Shore 2. xx

  22. Yes, I love "me" time, although I must admit it's not something I get a lot of now with 3 little ones. When we were first married we worked very different hours, so he had a couple of hours alone in the morning and I had a couple of hours alone in the evening. It worked very well for us given that we were both 30+ when we married and were used to our own space.

  23. I'm right there with u! I haven't had a chance to see Downtown girls yet though. I have to catch up :)

  24. I don't watch any of those. I do love me some Project Runway though.

  25. I love my alone time, and my secret passion is The Hills and The City, Captain John will watch the girls for a little, then start the negative comments!
    I am watching The Bachelorette on the big screen as I type.
    I will get Friday Favorites back next week, sorry, and you are still up!

  26. I'm so glad you found my blog, because now I can read yours! It's adorable!

    We share a love for silly girly reality tv (although I haven't really watched Jerseylicious I do love the others). And we share a love for Britney haha.
