Tuesday Things.

autumn I howsweeteats.com

1. Is there a place where it is eternally fall? There should be and I should live there.

2. My world just exploded: whole wheat CROISSANTS. From the only person I would trust with whole wheat croissants. Such a win.

3. This morning I turned on the TV to watch GMA (my favorite) while making breakfast and Beaches happened to be on the last station I was watching. So I basically ate a breakfast of tears.

4. I made a box of brownies at my parents’ house last Friday and seriously, they were some of the best brownies I have ever had. Why you gotta be so good, boxes?

5. Since I’m in a Halloween candy coma, does anyone else remember like 20 years ago when Twix had other flavors, such as chocolate mint and cookies and cream? That was the life.

6. Speaking of Halloween, I’m super excited because hopefully by this time next week, Jimmy Kimmel will have his annual video where the parents tell their kids that they ate all of their candy. So funnay.

7. Are you guys fans of haunted houses? They scare the crap out of me. Haven’t been to one in years but if I go, I need to be in the middle of a large group of people. This video of one of Ellen’s writers and producers going through a haunted house is SO me. It’s hilarious.

8. TV schtuff. SO Homeland, you’re getting so good. My heart was in pieces for Saul, it was pumping for Quinn (omg) and can we talk about Dana? Apparently there is all this hate for Dana and she actually doesn’t bother me that much. I mean I think her mannerisms are hilarious and the SNL skit was to die for last year, but otherwise, I don’t mind her. I think the actress is gor.geous. Though I do have to say that one of her scenes on Sunday might have beat out James Van der Beek for the ugliest cry ever. Also, I just gotta say that I am LOVING Avery on Nashville now, love his chemistry with Juliette – so glad they kept him around. I definitely cried at the end last week with my BBF Connie Britton singing. WHY DOES THIS SHOW DO THIS TO ME.

9. This list killed me: the 50 most 90s things to ever happen. And if you want a good giggle: 32 people who are having a worse day that you. I laughed at some of those like I do with autocorrects.

10. Five years later and we still argue over who loads the dishwasher the best way. I apparently do it wrong. But guess what! So does he.

    Aww! TLC! And JTT! And those overalls! (I definitely had the same ones Beyonce was wearing – and my mom definitely just called me within the last 3 weeks to ask if she could donate them Goodwill. “Umm…sure, Mom…if you think they’ll take them.”)

    I’m SO glad Homeland is finally getting back into its groove. I was uber skeptical when it seemed to be taking 8 years to get a Brody sighting, ammiright?

    Also, I’m obsessed with Dana. What a ridonculously good little actress.

    I totally remember all of those Twix flavors. I LOVED them. I made homemade Twix once, and made two options – caramel or peanut butter. people freaked out and looked at me weird, saying THAT ONE (pointing to peanut butter) is NOT a Twix!! there was peanut butter, right? RIGHT?

    I love when Jimmy Kimmel does that.

    I’ve never seen Beaches…what is it? Also–I am obsessed with those Jimmy Kimmel videos, as well as that Ellen video. I watch Ellen pretty much every day, can’t get enough.

    I’ve had whole wheat croissants before! They were so good–the whole wheat part negates the butter, right?? I’ve also had pretzel croissants and those were pretty amazing too.

    The movie, Beaches, is one of my favorites. When I was really young, I loved watching the beginning when they were on the boardwalk and getting ice cream floats. Also, totally agree, Jimmy Kimmel’s videos of parents telling their kids that they ate their candy is hilarious!

    YES! yes yes yes! I thought I was the only one who remembered the different flavored twix. My husband didn’t believe me so I had to google it. Total flashback to fifth grade snack time. I’d trade snacks for a PB twix any day.

    I am almost positive my boyfriend loads the dishwasher wrong on purpose so he never has to do dishes; the way he does it makes me cringe whenever I load something after him.

    My boyfriend always harps on me about the dishwasher!! That’s hilarious.. I now do it so lazily because I know he will rearrange it anyways!! That’s probably not the mature thing to do.
    Thats list was great.. The first pic may be my fav but of course all the overalls..The TLC ones with condoms!! Anyways I had a black pair that was totally super cool :)

    Speaking of the 90s, every time Avery is on, I have flashbacks from the movie Camp Nowhere. And when he was Lucky? We are so lucky to have lived through the 90s and remember it.

    Jon David and I LOVE the Jimmy Kimmel Candy Skit. We watch it together every year!! The funniest thing is, he’s so chill about his Halloween candy..I could eat it all and he wouldn’t bat an eye (we have candy around ALLL the time, so he’s kind of numb to sugar). So, seeing these kids flipping out is such a foreign concept to him, he’s like, “why don’t they just go get some from the candy drawer”.

    Because yes, he thinks all moms keep a candy drawer.

    Also, I still want to marry Quinn.

    I feel like you’re my soul sister! Last week I had to introduce myself to a big group of people at work and said my favorite movies were Beaches and Blow. Everyone laughed at me. Also, was bawling during Rayna’s song last week. Bawling.

    Ellen’s videos of haunted houses (and hidden camera gags in general) are some of the best I’ve ever seen. She’s so stinking funny, it’s not even funny (wait, yeah it is.). She needs to get a load of Bubba, though … she’s missing the boat on that one!

    We argue over dishwasher loading all the time! He puts everything in the front (aka the lazy way) so that after the first few dishes are in there, you have to open the darn thing up all the way just to stick a piece of silverware in. Shouldn’t drive me crazy, but it does! Glad we’re not the only ones :)

    The dishwasher thing made me laugh. Pierre and i have been married for almost 7 years and not only do we argue about who loads it better but we also argue about who UNLOADS it better. MEN.
