Within the next 9 days (the last possible day I'll be pregnant before I'm induced), I'm going to be spending A LOT of time nursing a baby. I imagine it to be quality time with my babe and I also suspect there will be many moments I'll need something to occupy my time. What do you mamas out there do besides surf the internet and check Facebook? I assume you can only do that for so long so I'd like to load up my Netlix cue, my Kindle and my Google Reader with tv shows, books and blogs which come highly recommended. So I was thinking ... I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours.
What's one must-see tv show or series, recommended book and a favorite blog you follow right now?
Here's My List:
Friday Night Lights
Andi and I got HOOKED on this series this summer. I personally love football, and there's obviously some of that in the show, but there's also awesome story lines and great development of characters. You don't have to love football to heart this show, either. There's a little bit of sex, lots of drama and fast-moving story lines. We flew through the first five seasons like two obsessed teenagers watching 90210 in the 90's. It's THAT good.
The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo
I'll admit, I haven't read much of anything lately that wasn't about parenting or pregnancy, but one "non-preggo" book I finished was The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. It's a mystery with lots of suspense and a little bit of edge taking place in a foreign country. While I found the characters a bit difficult to identify with at first, the book quickly became a page-turner. I'm just started the second book in the series, The Girl Who Played with Fire.
Operation Pink Herring
I don't remember when or how I stumbled upon this blog, but lately it's been one of my favorites to follow. This gal isn't far behind me in her pregnancy with her first child. While she leads a very different life than mine half-way across the country, I find her experiences to be witty and relatable. Hope she doesn't mind me giving her a shameless plug here!
Ok, your turn! Leave me a comment with your favorite tv show, book and/or blog and help fill in my up-all-nights of the future!
