I don't know about you but I feel we all need an Olympic medal for making it to the end of this week! But Friday is finally here and I've got goodies galore. First up, you can catch me over at Primitive & Proper taking part in Cassie's fun It's Eclectic series. Check it out here. 

And also, what would a Friday be without a good Fess Up?! Today we've got one of my very favorite ladies, store and blog all rolled up into one - Jennifer from The Pink Pagoda. I'm lucky enough to have some of Jennifer's wonderful prints in my living room and I covet just about every single blue and white item she has in her shop. And on top of all of that style and talent, she is genuinely one of the nicest people I have (virtually) met.

So Jennifer, Fess Up!


My family room pre-ORC.  Still looks somewhat the same, just different reflections in the TV and messier book stacks.

I adore Elizabeth's "Fess Up Friday" series.  What fun to read about everyone's idiosyncrasies!  Today, I'm confiding four things about TV at my house.  

Before I begin the confessional, I'll say that since both Elizabeth and I have design blogs, I thought I'd include some photos that illustrate the tricky TV being handled well.


First, I admit that I love TV.  I used to be kind of snobby about it and thought people should read instead of watching television (former English teacher of 10 years).  My, how things have changed.  

As my 16 year old daughter has lots of extra-curricular activities that keep her busy, plus ridiculous amounts of homework, we aren't watching much TV as a family.


But, when we are watching, my daughter is heavily influencing the choices.


Which leads me to the second thing I'm sharing about TV at my house.


I did mention that my daughter's 16, right?  As a result, aesthetics are influencing our viewing.  

That means we're watching Downton Abbey, Arrested Development, Castle, Sherlock, Jimmy Fallon, Idol, Parks and Rec, and White Collar with her.  

The third thing that might surprise you is that I do not care for Chick TV.

And, that's happy for my husband.  He doesn't have to watch The Bachelorette and I don't have to watch sports. Very conveniently, we like the same TV.  Homeland, House of Cards, and Boardwalk Empire are some of our favorites.

Lastly, I'll admit that I partake in binge TV. Sometimes, an episode is so good that you just HAVE to watch the next one.  And then the next one, too.  Yikes.  DVDs, Netflix and DVRs make binge watching just too easy.  Some of the shows that are too addicting to stop after one episode are Damages, Dexter, Six Feet Under, The Killing, 30 Rock, and I could go on unfortunately.

Whew.  I feel much better after the "Fess Up."  Thanks for having me, Elizabeth!  Hopefully some of your readers can relate : )

I can totally relate! Especially since I'm counting down the days until the new House of Cards season starts next week! Thanks Jennifer for playing along today. 

And one last bit of great news - Jennifer is up for best Design Blog Graphics and Presentation award in the Design Bloggers Conference Hall of Fame! Not too shabby! Please take a minute to click here and cast your vote. I know I've voted and I would love to see her win!! 

Happy Weekend all!
