New Idol: Olivia Pope


This is a wonderful Friday because it marks the start of summer, aka..Memorial Day weekend!  I am pumped for a weekend with my bestie, AMF!

I am also pumped to say 3 MORE WEEKS!!!  Summer has been calling my name for quite some time now so each day as it gets closer I've been doing a little happy dance inside!

Why have I been silent in the blogosphere this week you might be asking?

Well y'all, let me tell you-- I've got a crush.

A big giant girl crush on Scandal's leading lady Olivia Pope (by the way, isn't that a beautiful name...Olivia Pope!)!

Let me give you a little background.  Bryce has been in London since Saturday and won't be home until late Tuesday night.  While I've been holding down the fort I figured now was the perfect time to start watching Scandal.  I've been curious about it since the show first aired, but because I'm picky about not starting a show in the middle and missed the first episodes, I hadn't watched.

Well, we recently got Netflix...and one thing led to another!

It's bad guys!  I have stayed up past my bedtime every night this week watching Scandal!  Now I've finished Season 1 and am planning to sign up for a free trial of Hulu Plus immediately after finishing this post so I can get started on Season 2!

How perfect is she?
Gorgeous, Polished, Smart...

She also has a fabulous wardrobe and the love of a very charismatic president...
Can't decide if I love him or hate him yet; guess we'll see how Season 2 goes!

Simply stunning
Also, I'd kill for those teeny tiny, toned arms!

And I'd kill for that lamp!
Her apartment in the epitome of chic.

On top of it all, I'm also in love with her team...
So curious about Miss Quinn!

What have y'all been up to this week?

Do you watch Scandal?  What are your favorite TV shows?  

*No spoilers please...I'm just starting Season 2!*

Have a great holiday weekend!
