Life with Cable.

Well, we have had cable for a little over a month now and I'm loving it. I felt like I had been missing out on so much because I didn't know half the shows on television. I flipped through channels and couldn't believe there were shows on called Tool Academy and Real Chance of Love 2. Garth and I made fun of them and thought they were incredibly stupid...but then we got addicted to them. Reality TV sucks me in every time!
My all time favorite shows areTop Chef, Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Khloe and Kourtney take Miami. I am really routing for Kevin on Top Chef, though I'm pretty sure one of the brothers will win.
Oh, and House Hunters is always a favorite, but sometimes that show just depresses me because there are people my age or a few years older buying SECOND homes on exotic beaches. NOT fair.
I think the best thing that came from getting cable is watching The Food Network. It has been tradition for Garth and I to lay in bed every Saturday morning and drink our coffee and watch The Food Network. It is inspiring us to cook and we are even looking into taking a cooking class together! If you know me at all, you know this is HUGE! Cable was a success.

I love cable! :) I usually watch Real Housewives, but I just can't watch that Atlanta one...

Jen Caputo said...

hehe! I love the VH1 celeb-reality shows. My favorite thing to do on a Sunday morning is to curl up on the couch and watch that trash :) HGTV is another obsession of course!

Lauren said...

Cooking classes would be so fun!

I hear you!! I get sucked into Real Housewives all the time. And love to watch House Hunters hoping it will spur my husband into getting serious about a house--we are in our 30s and living in an apartment! Food Network is my major time sucker though. Love me some Throwdown with Bobby Flay!

B.E.A said...

Ahh! Don't torture me. We just cut our cable on our budget line. I'm trying to forget all of those fabulous HGTV shows! :)

Sunshinemeg said...

Haha, cable is great! The cooking class would probably be a blast too.

Welcome to the world of Cable! When we got DVR last spring, I had a similar "ahhh" moment! So many fun things to watch!

Amber said...

Yayay for cable! Some of our favorite times are cuddling on the couch watching bad TV!

Tasha said...

Cable and me are BFF. I watch all things Kardashin too. I love everything on HGTV. House Hunters International is a fav, along with Divine Design, Color Splash, and Design Star. Yes, I watch WAY too much TV. :-)

Anne Carr said...

I didn't have cable until I married my hubby last year. Honestly, about the only thing I watch on it is an occasion episode of "What Not to Wear" or old reruns of "Gilmore Girls" or "Brady Bunch". Pathetic, I know. The music stations are nice so I don't have to switch CD's in the player...
Glad you're enjoying it so much! Three Cheers to the Food Network!

Sara said...

I highly recommend taking a cooking class together. It's so much fun! Try to find one that's "hands on" rather than a demo. We always have a blast when we take cooking classes together.

Justine said...

Jon and I weren't going to get cable when we moved to Florida, but it was included in our HOA fees. I am SO glad!! I watch The Food Network, TLC, Lifetime and USA (For the Law and Order marathons, of course! :) )

The First-Year Wife said...

I'm addicted to the Food Network too! I feel like you pick up a lot of little tips watching those shows. I watch Kourtney and Khloe take Miami, too. It's so trashy and nuts sometimes, I like to call it my guilty pleasure show. :)

New England Girl said...

Good for you guys!! I love Food Network and never seem to get tired/bored of the programs they include in their line up.

Shanny said...

I don't know how you survived so long without cable! Glad you are enjoying it =)

SCORE! Cable is the best... LOVE it!!

Now you need to discover "Bones", "Criminal Minds", and "NCIS".

You might even like: "How I Met Your Mother", "The Office" (You have to watch it a few weeks in a row to really start to appreciate it), and "Big Bang Theory". these are all regular favorites on uor house!!

Oh - and "Army Wives" is SOOO so addicting!!!

Husby and I LOVE Top Chef. We actually have to catch up on it before tonight's show. I like the brothers and Heather. Is Kevin the southern guy from Atlanta? If so, we like him too. Those are our top 4.

Sassy and Classy Southern Mrs. said...

You crack me up! Reality TV sucks me in too! I was addicted to Big Brother and now my favorite is Biggest Loser. My DVR is my obsession!

Tool Academy is hilarious! If you haven't watched it you should! Those tool boxes get exactly what they deserved...well usually...sometimes what they really need is a slap in the face!

Becky said...

Thank you for making it normal to watch Khloe and Kourtney. Good heavens, I feel ridiculous for watching the Kardashians, but I just can't help it -- they are just infintely WATCHable, aren't they???

Shoshanah said...

The food network is pretty much the only station me and my boyfriend can agree to watch together.
