Our contract with Directv ran out two weeks ago and with a baby on the way and adding diapers to our budget, we decided not to renew.
I'm not gonna lie, I miss tv.
But I've actually been amazed at how much more productive I've been able to be without it sucking me in for hours on end. I actually stayed on top of the laundry and didn't have six loads waiting for me.
Plus, I've found that there are blog substitutes for the shows I've been missing.
I miss all things HGTV, but I love to read Young House Love and see how they DIY almost everything.
I miss Pawn Stars and Picker Sisters, but I love to see what fun things people find thrifting via Southern Hospitality.
I miss Project Runway and the Style Network but I love to read Kendi Everyday for fashion inspiration.
I miss Top Chef and the Food Network, but I love to read what The Pioneer Woman is cooking up!
Now, if only there were blogs about housewives who don't get along, I'd be all set. My husband is rejoicing that I will no longer have the opportunity to watch that show.
So, I guess in time maybe I'll forget how much I loved tv and just love reading blogs a little more. It's still like getting a little dose of reality tv, reading blogs, because I get a peek into other people's lives and there's just something entertaining about that.
Luckily, there's always Hulu for the Bachelor.
