***Cue screaming and clapping***

I am so happy that my favorite TV shows have finally come back on this week! I know it's pretty dumb to blog about this, especially since Scott and I are probably some of the only people who care. However, my absolute FAVORITE show will kick off its season premiere tonight.....drum roll.........................THE OFFICE! I know a few weeks back I said that I was going to do a "Fun Friday" segment every Friday with clips from The Office, but I went on vacation and never did it again after that. If you'd like to watch it, we have all of the seasons and are willing to let anyone borrow them.

Anyway, I just love fall time because it means perfect weather, beautiful leaves, Halloween, and of course, my favorite TV shows are back on. I really don't like the summer TV shows- maybe because we only have basic cable. The only ones I got into this summer were The Bachelorette and a little bit of So You Think You Can Dance. I don't know if you all like America's Got Talent, but to me it's the white trash version of American offense to anyone who likes it, though. I'm not really a big fan of Jerry Springer and I find it sad that some of the contestants get booed as they are performing. Sometimes I just expect the contestants to start hitting each other with chairs and what not.

I don't usually watch TV during the day, either. I know, you all think the typical stay-at-home mom sits at home all day watching soap operas and eating Chips-a-hoy, but I'll save that time for when my kids are in school;)

Anyway, here are the shows that are a MUST WATCH for this season:

Monday: Dancing with the Stars
Tuesday: The Biggest Loser (I guess I'll never get to watch who gets kicked off of Dancing With The Stars).
Wednesday: ?? Still looking for a show that peaks my interest
Thursday: Survivor, The Office
Friday: ??
Saturday: Um...this Saturday it will be the Relief Society broadcast
Sunday: The Amazing Race

There are other shows that I have wanted to get into, like Heroes and we used to be into House, MD, but we don't have Tivo, which is probably a good thing. We'll be back into 24 and American Idol once January comes around.

As I've already mentioned, tonight kicks off the season for The Office, and we are having a party at our house! Okay, not really a party, but another couple will be joining us and we are going to have Papa John's Pizza (the good stuff, NOT Little Caesars, which is usually what we get because it tastes decent, and it's cheap). If we had a Round Table around we would be digging our fingers into that tonight, but unfortunately there are none here in Utah.

Anyway, sorry I am rambling on about TV, but unfortunately this is what I have to look forward to at nights after Hannah has gone to bed and while Scott is busy doing homework. Oh, and I'm currently reading Midnight Sun but will probably finish that tonight.

We'll eat some Round Table for ya! :) Trent loves Pizza! If he could he would eat it every night for dinner. We have pizza at least twice a week, if not three times. Round Table is his favorite. We got out of the temple last week around 9:30ish and what did he want???? Round TAble. We spend many late nights eating it, I have hang overs the next morning from it. Next time you come, lets all go out to All you can eat lunch buffet. That will blow you away. hahaha!
Anyways.... enough about pizza. enjoy.

And why were Markai and I not invited? We love the Office too, didn't Scotty tell you? We were just as excited to see it, and planned packing for our trip and house cleaning around it. Not sure what I will do for next thursday though since I will be in Yellowstone, so you better type a full blog about next weeks episode!

We actually watched it Maran-- thank goodness for DVR's! Funny stuff! When does "The Biggest Loser" begin?

I look forward to vegging in front of the TV every night. It's the only time of day that I get to really relax and what better way to relax than to not have to do any kind of work (maybe lift a finger to the remote). We watched The Office. I'm a little worried about Pam's guy friend at school. Anyhoo, I'm off to shut off my brain for awhile and stare at the tube.

Jen- The Biggest Loser started two weeks ago. It's on Tuesdays at 7:00 here, but it might start at 8:00 in Arizona. I bet you were kind of confused after watching The Office if you haven't seen any other episodes.

Kerrie- I'm a little worried about Pam's guy friend, too. I also don't really like that Angela is cheating on Andy....feel bad for him.

Wes- don't know if you'll check this again, but just know that everything is always Scott's fault:) JK. But seriously, you guys should come over one Thursday and watch it with us. Good news for you is that The Office isn't on this week, so you'll be home in time next week to watch the next episode.
