Just What The Doctor Ordered

This weekend was just what the doctor ordered because I am feeling so much better. I didn’t do much besides lay on the couch and watch One Tree Hill. Best part is that I don't even feel lame sharing this.

I’ve been watching One Tree Hill on Netflix for months and finally on Sunday I finished the 187th episode. After it ended, with tears streaking down my face, I became sad when it dawned on me that this was it. It was all over. If you have Netflix and haven’t watched One Tree Hill, I highly recommend. I loved getting home and watching a few episodes a night. Now I need to find another television show to watch. Any recommendations?

I think the most exciting thing to happen to me this weekend was this:

OMG, soooo good! It’s my new favorite. It took all my willpower not to devour the entire container. I’m proud to report that half of it still remains.

The weather got up to a whole 27 degrees yesterday. Today it will get up to 30 degrees. Heat wave! ;)

How were your weekends? I need to live vicariously through some of you.

Be sure to enter this fabulous giveaway! 6 prizes, 6 winners! I don’t know what it is but shopping for my blogging friends is almost as fun as shopping for me. Almost ;).

Happy Monday! ♥

Yay glad you are feeling better! I just got that same gelato for Derek. Sad to say that he ate the whole thing in one sitting haha.

The Pink Growl said...

I'm gonna have to try that! Everybody posts pictures of it and I feel left out.

Glad you're feeling better. Revenge is a good show. So is Suits.

Kristen said...

Haha, woah heat wave! Sad that we're actually having one since it's suppose to be up to 70 today here in KC. Sad to say, as much as I love snow (and we haven't gotten much), I'm ready for the warmer weather. Well…my skin is. ;)

I need to try that gelato!!

ruthy ann said...

Faith!!! It's 8am and now I want gelato.

Ashley said...

sometimes we just gotta have a weekend like you had. i had the same kind, but i wasn't sick. glad you're feeling better!

one tree hill was always one of my favs. andddd...ummm...that gelato is amazeballs. for real. have you tried the carmel cookie one? yumo!

Carolyn said...

OMG! OTH is one of my all-time favorite shows. I bawled like a baby when it was over. SO GOOD! You definitely need to watch Friday Night Lights! Love it so far! And I think I'm going to need to try that gelato. YUM.

Cece said...

Your weekend sounds very similar to mine!!! I have nothing to contribute for you to live vicariously through me. Do you eat that caramel plain or what? Perhaps lick it off your fingers on the sly after you've told yourself you wouldn't go back for more? LOL

YeamieWaffles said...

I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling a little better Faith, I've never watched One Tree Hill before but I've heard it's very good and I should check it out. Is the salted caramel thing some kind of ice cream? It sounds marvellous!

Kathy C. said...

How weird! I've been watching OTH on Netflix too! I think I have just one more left! I used to watch it when it was live... it was one of my favs! :) I also watch: Mad Men (great!!), Gossip Girl (lol) and Once Upon A Time (Just started watching last night with Matt... we love so far)

Valerie Griffin said...

i'm on the 7th season on OTH right now!

and let me tell you...I've REALLY been tempted to try that gelato every time i've seen it in the grocery store. you have official convinced me to make my husband stop by and get me some on his way home :)

Emily Gilbert said...

I've seen these geelato containers at the grocery store, and have always wondered if they were good! I will have to pick one up <3

I am SO glad you are feeling better, being sick sucks! If you're looking for a hilarious show I recommend Arrested Development. Its so funny (a tad shocking at times).

josie renee said...

Glad you are feeling better hun! I've been streaming parenthood and I am trying to take it slow because once it ends I am going to be distraught.

Christina Marie Kellogg said...

I will keep my eyes peeled for Talenti, next time I go to the grocery store. I'm new to salted caramel treats...good stuff!

Heather said...

I'm glad you're feeling better! That gelato sounds delicious! It would definitely help make me feel better anytime.

Brandi @ Home Team Dreams said...

Glad you're feeling much better!

Netflix is totally making me depressed. I find these great shows, then finsh all the episodes and I'm left sad and hanging that it's over. I finished Gossip Girls a couple months ago. Then, White Collar and I just finished all the episodes of Nikita last week. Guess I should try One Tree Hill? I've never watched it.

Jessica said...

My Netflix recommendation is The Vampire Diaries!

Caitlin C. said...

That stuff is seriously amazing but ADDICTING. I always eat the whole jar in a day when it's in my house!

McKenna Ryan said...

This looks absolutely delicious!! I love watching Desperate Housewives on Netflix. xx. McKenna Lou

Brittany said...

ummmm YUM. i love gelato! ate it everyday, sometimes four times a day, when we honeymooned in italy. SO glad you're feeling better! crazy that it's so cold up there...it's been 80 degrees here for a week. totally feels like summer, not january!

Pegster said...

Isn't so nice to be able to take a break from life. I am glad that you were able to get some rest and get back to yourself.

We are supposed to get a heat wave this week, temperature close to the 70s, crazy.

integratedmemoirs said...

My husband loves gelato. I do too, but I'm lactose intolerant :-(

Angie said...

It was really cold here this weekend too but tomorrow it is supposed to hit 70 degrees. Isn't that insane?

Kirsten Wiemer said...

so glad you are feeling better love!
and that seriously is the best gelato.
try every flavor, seriously.
and tv shows i love include but are not limited to: greys, arrested development, parks and rec, gossip girl, prison break, breaking bad, and the walking dead.

Life with J and J said...

That gelato looks so good! I am glad I am not the only one who eats ice cream in the winter :-).

Glad you're feeling better!

LWLH said...

Now if the weather and temps could just keep rising. :)

Elle to Elle said...

Now you already know (okay you have tons of blog friends so you probably forgot) how much I ADORE One Tree Hill. I was sooooooo sad, though prepared, for the last episode. I still get a lump in my throat when I think about it. I haven't found a show to replace it. Its such a shame that EVERYTHING is reality based now. There's nothing like an awesome scripted show that doesn't involve csi (or vampires) in every episode. If you hear of a good scripted drama show, let me know!
We went to NC a couple years ago and stopped in Wilmington, NC on a day that OTH was filming. We got to see where they film some of their bar and coffee scenes but most of their scenes are filmed on an inaccessible area on the river across from downtown Wilmington.
Anyway, glad to know you're feeling better, even if I am behind.

So, I've been wanting to try that Talenti stuff for awhile now, but it's like 6 or 7 points on Weight Watchers and that ain't gonna work!

Desi said...

Finally got me a pint of that goodness! It wasn't as salty as I'd like to contrast the caramel, but still good. Loved the little caramel pieces inside too :)
