Happy 2016! We’ve made it through the first full work week of the new year and so many new and exciting things are happening already, including some new TV shows. I finished the Maze Runner book series last night and I think my brain needs a detox from thinking while I try and process the whole book series. How about a few Friday Favorites?
It is safe to say the best Friday Favorite of the week is that the Tanner family hugs are back. Yes! We are under the two month countdown to Fuller House. My inner five year old gets more and more excited with every new news article about the show. While the show will most likely be incredibly cheesy I can’t wait to binge watch it the day it comes out. Just 7 more Fridays.
Just before Christmas a friend came over and told me “YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO SERIAL!” I listened to the first two episodes and was immediately hooked on it. Now that I have caught up for two weeks to episode four and it keeps getting more and more interesting. Last year I couldn’t understand what the fuss was all about, now I need to go back and listen to season one.
My favorite TV shows are (almost) all back on TV. Suddenly my “I don’t watch TV” mindset changed this week with Biggest Loser & Downton Abbey starting back up. Not to mention, conference season is finally here for college basketball! I haven’t decided how I feel about Biggest Loser this year. The entire show is different but at the same time it is still the same in many ways. Are you watching it? Has anyone checked out My Diet Is Better Than Yours yet?
More importantly, The Bachelor is back and he’s a guy from a small town in Indiana. Night one was crazy, did anyone else watch? Is it just me or did ABC bring in a lot more crazy than usual? I feel like MAYBE 3 or 4 of those girls were serious and the rest were there for the show. Can we skip to the final episode?
On a non TV related favorite. I came across Once A Gymnast: To The Sport That Used To Be My Whole Life. This is a wonderful piece written by a now former gymnast. I was not in gymnastics nearly as long as she was (nor was I even good) but it is such a wonderful sport. I couldn’t imagine how hard it would be to say goodbye in her shoes! Athletes in a number of different sports could relate.
Speaking of Gymnastics, Lauren from the Gymnternet put together an AWESOME article on Our First US Women’s Olympic Team. If you have any interest in gymnastics, the Olympics or any form of sports history I highly recommend checking it out. Our sport has changed so much over the last century.
