make it or break it.

I lurve the sport of gymnastics and have for going on 15 years now.  Not all that long ago I wrote about how thrilled I was that my favorite gymnast, Dominique Moceanu, started following me on Twitter.  So, how is it that an entire television show about competitive gymnastics has been on for two seasons and I’m just now discovering it?

I came across Make It or Break It from ABC Family while looking around on the Netflix Instant options.  I only watched the pilot episode, but I’m pretty sure I’m completely hooked.

It’s about The Rock, a top-notch gymnastics training center in Boulder, Colorado.  The stars of the gym are Payson, Kaylie, and Lauren; in the first episode, newcomer Emily outperforms Lauren to take her spot in the top three.  There’s going to be lots of drama but tons of gymnastics which makes me absolutely giddy!  Netflix and I are going to have a regular date over the next few weeks so I can get caught up in this show!

“Make it or break it” just might be my marathon mantra.

Dinner was the On the Border leftovers from Friday’s mother daughter shopping day.  I think it may have tasted even better today than it did on Friday.


I munched on some chocolate covered pretzels I picked up from Cherry Republic when I was in Traverse City last weekend.  These things are crazy addicting.

I probably would eat the entire bag in one sitting if I gave myself the opportunity, they’re that good.

What’s a show you got hooked on after it had been out for awhile? The big one for me was Friends.  I didn’t really start watching until the last couple seasons and now I watch the DVDs of all 10 seasons pretty consistently.

LOVE those cherry pretzels. You’re right– insanely delicious. Nice job with portion control!

I just recently got addicted to 30 rock! It’s been on for 5 years and so hilarious but I just started watching a few months ago. Great show.

Definitely – so glad to find someone else who watches it!! I’m only through two episodes, so I’ve got a little ways to go, but I’m stoked to watch more!

I’ve never seen Bones, but I lurve the other two – especially The Office (although it won’t be the same without Steve Carell!)

It absolutely won’t be the same without him! I basically still watch for Jim and Pam 🙂 Bones is an amazingly witty and interesting show with lots of gross scenes of bodies with a hint at romance. Gotta love that mix.

OMG I love Make It or Break It and I have never really been into gymnastics. I used to run on the treadmill while watching it since I found it very motiovating. My new favorite guilty TV pleasure is Switched at Birth. Soo good!

Oh, I think I saw an ad for that not too long ago and was intrigued! I’ll have to check it out!
