Favorites Friday ~ The Great British Baking Show

I can’t tell you the last time I did a Favorites Friday. Well…I guess I could because I could go look back in my blog archives. Okay…

*I’m not telling you the last time I did a Favorites Friday because I don’t want to take the time to go back and look.

So a favorite tv show of mine is The Great British Baking Show. If you haven’t heard of it, you should check it out! (netflix!) It’s absolutely delightful to watch! I don’t know half of the foods that they are instructed to make nor many of the ingredients they use….but it’s enjoyable to watch anyhow!

It’s so different than most of the American cooking shows, which is such a huge draw for my family! Why is it different you ask? Well, I shall tell you.

Mel and Sue. need I say more? they are hysterical and the puns are terribly fantastic. Mel’s glancing at the camera after a pun is priceless. the way they interact with the contestants just cracks me up

there’s no screaming, yelling, or angry tantrums from any of the contestants or any of the judges

hearing contestants say, repeatedly, “I tried it two or three times at home and it never really turned out the way I wanted it to”

the music that plays in the background is delightful!! it’s calming and soothing

no language whatsoever = family friendly

the contestants are actually nice and friendly with each other and with the judges. the contestants, often times, will help each other whenever they get into a jam

listening to everybody’s sass about the technical challenges

even if something doesn’t taste the greatest or look the greatest, the judges are tactful about it. not insulting or rude

the rewatchableness of the show. i can watch the same seasons and episodes multiple times and i’m not bored with it

the scenery and nature around The Tent is absolutely gorgeous. the flowers and trees are lovely. the little black sheep and the fluttering birds just add something special to the show

listening to everyone talk. again, need I say more? the accents are to die for

I’m sure I could go on for quite some time about The Great British Baking Show, but this will suffice for now 😉

Have you ever seen the show or do you have a show that makes you oh so happy?

Movies, Movies, Movies

I love to watch movies! I enjoy action and adventure, mystery-ish, comedy, documentary, ‘based on true stories’….okay, I won’t list all the genres of movies I like or we’ll be here till next week! Suffice it to say that I enjoy watching movies of all sorts! Everyone always asks

What’s your favorite movie? Like ever. Best movie hands down?

How do you answer this question?? There are a million movies in all sorts of genres, as depicted above ;), how do you narrow that down to pick 1 movie? I have no idea, so don’t expect an answer here!

I can talk about what some of my favorite movies are though! I mean, who can’t talk about their favorite things?

Even as I type this I am feeling flutters of anxiety in leaving a good movie out (get a grip, Abbey!)

Okay! So movies that top my list here we come!

Titanic. I’d say this is my favorite movie ever. I have loved the history of the Titanic since I was little, so having the events portrayed in a movie, with Leonardo DiCaprio is awesome for me. To see the happenings of that voyage unfold…I get chills just thinking about it.

Inceptionthis is another Leo movie that is incredible. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a dream inside a dream inside a dream. please go watch it as it is a great mind bender movie. each time I watch it, I find things that I didn’t catch before. and it has a pretty darn good cast as well.

Marvel in general has produced some crazy good movies. Thor: Ragnarok, Ant Man, The Avengers would be the three to top my list. the first two because they were very comical and the third because it’s the first time you see the Avengers in action and it’s awesome.

Date Night is hysterical. we just rewatched it the other night and I was rolling laughing. Steve Carrell and Tina Fey are honestly the perfect combo. and throwing in a little shirtless Mark Wahlberg doesn’t hurt.

Oceans Eleven, Oceans Twelve, Oceans Thirteenoh my word. this trilogy might be overturning my current favorite. the cast in these movies…..huge names and phenomenal skills. Eleven would undoubtedly be my favorite of the three.

How to Steal a Million with Audrey Hepburn is so comical and sweet. She does a wonderful job and Peter O’Toole is excellent as well.

Well, there you are! Some of my favorite movies all lined in a row!

Thoughts on my movie choices? What are you favorite movies?
