Must Watch Shows This Fall
Now that the boys are back in school it is time for me to catch up on my must watch shows this fall. There are quite a few I have been wanting to watch for awhile, but things were just crazy this Summer. I am due with Prestyn soon, and I am sure I will be spending a lot of time watching shows while nursing and cuddling him. Here are the top three I want to watch.

The Blacklist: Season 1-2


Our friends suggested this one awhile back and I just haven’t had time to watch it.



I heard amazing things about this show and can not wait to dive in.

The Walking Dead

Walking Dead

Though I may need to watch The Walking Dead when Kenny is around.


While I am watching these shows I will enjoy snacking on these easy and delicious pumpkin cheesecake brownies. Yumm! Of course I can’t have a ton of this until after the baby has arrived because of my gestational diabetes but I can have a little sliver.

    I love the Blacklist. I am dying to find out the real relationship between Red and Elizabeth. I hope they finally give some real clues this season. I haven’t watched any of the other shows, but then who has much time for TV most of the time? With four kids and a hubby, I have to pick which shows I watch very carefully. I am a fan of Blacklist, Once Upon a Time, Grimm, and now, Blindside.

    But I admit, I would sit and watch anything if it meant I could gorge on those brownies. My son wants to open a “Brownie Shop” some day and so we’ve been collecting recipes and giving them a try. This one has made it on to the list and we can’t wait to give it a go. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Those look delicious! We must be the only people without Nexflix. My husband has been watching The Walking Dead though. I’m not familiar with the other shows you mentioned. Excited though that the new fall season has begun.

    Yay for the Walking Dead! My husband records the music for it, so I’m a totally biased fan!

    First of all, those brownies look and sound amazing! 🙂 And we are ALL about TWD in our house. I am so, so glad that they came out with Fear The Walking Dead. It has definitely been holding us over until October 11th arrives. 😉

    I am really looking forward to all of the new seasons starting. I tried to get into TWD but just can’t. My hubby LOVES it though. Can’t wait for Scandal and The Black List!
