There's Few Things Better...

*MY NEXT POST WILL BE THE DROP LEAF TABLE GIVEAWAY! CHECK BACK!*

....than the combination of chocolate pudding, graham cracker crust, and whipped cream. Really. I'm a simple gal, and simple's the way I roll. I like my house small & quaint. A good book. A cozy blanket.The sound of clothes rolling in the dryer. A cup of cream with a little coffee......ahhh.....


Speaking of simple. We've gotten one step closer towards simplify..... no satellite. We canceled our service. There's zero.....0......nada......TV watching going on in our house. Now, we did start a Netflix service, so whenever we do get an itch to watch something, we can have a good movie or Disc 1 of Season 1 of the "Gilmore Girls" (yes, my hubs will often come home and say, "Wanna watch the next episode??" tee hee.) Talk about a great way to save some $, too. $80 satellite bill replaced with a $14 Netflix fee. Check! In place of the white background noise of tv, we've read alot more books. I've finished three so far, and am currently reading "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand, who wrote "Seabiscuit".


GREAT Book.....

Read a Few Chapters and Want to Read More.....
My hubs and I wondered if canceling our service was the right thing to do. Without a shadow of a doubt, it was.

My family cancelled our Satellite service opting for NetFlix instead as well a few months back and I'd have to agree with you on it being a great idea! We spend less time listening to background noise as well, I can track what my daughter watches, and even block whatever I'd like and it is a considerably cheaper! Not to mention my daughter is even more active outdoors than before and tends to read more now than ever too! Me? I spend my time reading & researching online when not on working on theater projects and "occasionally" catch a good movie on netflix! John? Has watched nearly every episode of "Heroes" back to back. Should have made that show a paperback!

Bittersweet! My favorite book ever! And if I can get Gilmore Girls on Netflix then I can cancel my cable, too :)

SO, my new's years goal of 2010 was "simplify." I failed miserably. You've just re-inspired me!
