Monday- Pandora

So lately I've been using the wonderful thing that is Pandora. This wonderful online radio makes me one of the happiest people alive! I love the fact that you can add the music you like and they just play songs like it. I even enjoy their commercials, they play them not too often, at just the right amount. Because sometimes I just need a break from music for their 2 minute commercials. I have four stations right now, One Republic, David Crowder Band, Relient K, and Hawk Nelson. I listen more oft than not to One Republic. I encourage you to get a Pandora account and come hang out with me. You'll love it from your first visit, I promise. :D Get an account, and you won't regret it. I hope to see you all there! :)
P.S. I forgot to tell you, I am under orangekeck@gmail, not Just telling ya!

Saturday- TV Shows: The Mentalist

Okay, this is a pretty new thing to me but I totally love it! It's called the Mentalist its super funny! You guys all know that my favorite TV show is Psych. Well, this is pretty close to Psych.(Note: on the first episode of the 4th season Shawn mentions what he does is like the Mentalist) The only difference is age and maturity level, and those only go up a little bit. The main character, Patrick Jane, is actually super funny except more sarcastic but still funny. Not to mention I love how he dresses. I know weird! Anyway, it's really good just one problem. VERY GRAPHIC! The murder scenes look super real! I usually just glance away just for the heck of it. I don't want to remember most of the junk. Just to let you know I've only seen some of the newest season so (unlike Psych) I'm not an expert. But still so much fun!
WARNING: I watch this with my parents so if there is a "questionable part" they can skip it.

Wednesday Movie Night

So today instead of a post about movies I would like to put out a challenge. Try to watch one movie with a friend or family member, at least once a week. It may seem like a silly way to have quality time, but it actually is great. I have complied a list of my top ten favorite family movies. Here they are

  1. Madagascar, the first one. I love this movie it's great for little kids and hilarious for adults.
  2. Shrek 1 or 2, I am not particularly fond of 3 or 4, but 1 and 2 are amazing!
  3. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, one of the greatest movies ever! It's very funny and very cute! And completely wholesome.
  4. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the original one. My Dad's all time favorite, and one of mine too.
  5. Meet the Robinsons, I love this movie, it's cute and very sweet. It gets a little dark at one part, but the first time I watched it was with my (At the time) three year old niece. I think it's probably my 3rd favorite kid movie.
  6. National Treasure 1 or 2, for viewing with older kids or your best friends. My best friends and I love this movie, we quote it perpetually.
  7. Home Alone 1,2, or 3, I am not a huge fan of 4 but it's not bad. These are great to watch when sick around the holidays!
  8. Cars, I know it's kind of a silly favorite, but man oh man do I like it. It's great!
  9. Robots! This one's kind of old, but it still cracks me up. My dad likes the part where they're in the evil ladies lair.
  10. And Last but not least Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, for the musical lovers this is the best! Only good for older audiences to kids its sooooo boring. But relax and watch as the handsome brothers dance for the beautiful brides, its funny and totally musical.
And that's it, leave me feedback about your favorite and maybe it will become a post!
