Lifetime’s “Army Wives”

Army Wives Cast

Lately, there hasn’t been very many TV shows that I’ve watched from the beginning. But here was one show this past summer that I did watch all of the episodes.

There were only 13 episodes of the Lifetime’s Army Wives. From the first show, I was in front of my TV every Sunday night watching the show. I have no ties to the service and I’m not married to someone in the service, but something about this show caught my attention.

I am not sure who was my favorite character is on the show. I liked them all. I liked the roles that they played and how they interacted with each other. I really liked the music selection that they played on each episode. Enough to make me go to the website and print the music that was played in every episode.

When the season finale aired on Sunday, August 26th, I was sad to see it end. And the next day, I was on the internet to find out more about the show and see if I could find a spoiler or two… no luck so far.

So until Army Wives comes back for season 2, I’ll be listening to the music from the show and counting the days until it is back on.

Cake Mix Peanut Butter Cookies

This is one of my favorite recipes. I remember a cookbook I had when I was in second grade and this recipe was in it. I think these are the best peanut butter cookies I have ever had.

Enjoy!

Elvis Week

Elvis Week (Saturday, August 11 – Sunday, August 19)

Elvis Presley 68 Comeback Special

Each August, Elvis fans of all ages from around the world gather in Memphis, Tennessee for Elvis Week — a commemoration of the music, magic and memories associated with the legacy of Elvis Presley. Long-time fans and those who are new to it enjoy a full week of music, dance, sports, social and charitable events — all in an atmosphere of international friendship and camaraderie. Most fans say it feels like a huge family reunion they all look forward to each year. Everyone is welcome. Everyone belongs. Everyone has a great time. Whoever you are or wherever you’re from, if you’re into Elvis, then Elvis Week is for you. (From www.elvis.com)

This year’s Elvis week marked the 30th anniversary of Elvis’s passing and is expected to the biggest, most exciting Elvis Week ever. I was not able to attend the event this year, but I was there at Graceland in 1997 for the 20th anniversary of Elvis’s passing and there were only 50,000 fans there unlike the 75,000 that were there at this year’s event.

I have always been an Elvis fan since I was a little kid. So being at The King’s home in Memphis was an amazing experience. I just remember thinking to myself when I was walking through the gates of the mansion, this is were Elvis walked. When I went through the front door of the mansion, this is were Elvis walked. And when I was in the Jungle Room, (guess what I said), yep, this is were Elvis walked!

If you are a fan of Elvis, I would highly suggest visiting Graceland at least once in your life. But with the heat that they had there this past week, I don’t think I would be going there in the summer months.

If there are any Elvis fans out there, share your favorite song and movie.

My favorite movie: Girl Happy

My favorite song: If I Can Dream
