Cougar Town “To Find a Friend” Recap

In this week’s episode of Cougar Town, Laurie (Busy Phillips) and Travis (Dan Byrd) adjust to becoming parents. Jules (Courtney Cox) and Ellie (Christa Miller) keep telling them how exhausting the experience is, but they have no idea what they’re in for.

to find a friend cover

While Grayson (Josh Hopkins) is busy helping Andy (Ian Gomez) get over Bobby, the girls jump in to run the bar. At first they think it is easy and have the best time, but they forget to lock up and loose all of the day’s profits after they are robbed.

Laurie and Trav think they have this baby thing on lockdown, until they start getting paranoid that they baby is too quiet and not breathing. Laurie wears a Happy Roses pullover by Wildfox (sold out). I couldn’t find a similar look, but I think I found a great sweatshirt that has the same spirit in this Joker Sweatshirt ($119):

wildfox

Since Grayson knows that they made $3,000 the night before, Jules and Ellie have to work doubly hard to make double the money so Grayson won’t be the wiser.

Grayson is too busy with the Bobby Cobb Replacement Challenge to notice what they are up to. He gets three guys to compete to be Andy’s new best friend. None of those guys were replacement material until Andy realized that Grayson was his friend all along.

Meanwhile Jules and Ellie realize that they need to dress slutty to make money and tease all of the customers. Ellie’s makeup/outfit coverup shroud cracked me up! Grayson final uses Tom to catch them in the act and they have to admit that they messed up.

Laurie and Trav have completely hallucinated from lack of sleep, but they managed to keep baby Bobby alive! When Jules arrives, you get to see what a mess they’ve made of the house. Jules wears a Blue Sheer Combo Sleeveless Cocktail Dress (sold out). I found this similar Monrow Women’s Border Tie Dye Sporty Tank Maxi Dress ($135):

tie dye

Grayson and Andy make the girls dance on the bar Coyote Ugly style to pay for messing everything up. I’m not sure how I feel about a Cougar Town without Bobby Cobb, but we’ll have to see what happens to the gang next week.

Cougar Town “Full Grown Boy” Recap

This week on Cougar Town, Chick (Ken Jenkins) is finally moved in and Jules is so focused on taking care of him she doesn’t care if Grayson (Josh Hopkins) dresses like a 90s hip hop rapper. Jules wore a Ted Baker ‘Jineen’ Texture Panel Sheath Dress ($295). This Felicity & Coco Seamed Pencil Dress ($98) is similar:

Ted Baker

Full Grown boy intro

Travis (Dan Byrd) and Laurie (Busy Phillips) share that they have come up with their perfect baby names but they aren’t sharing. Meanwhile Andy (Ian Gomez) is excitedly waiting for Bobby’s (Brian Van Holt) return. Chick is gearing up for a Civil War reenactment but Jules puts her foot down because she doesn’t want him out in the heat. Too bad he ignores her and sneaks out anyways.

Bobby reveals that the club in Georgia made him a big offer to be a golf pro which throws Andy for a loop. Travis reveals Laurie’s baby names to Ellie and they are not good. He reveals that the girl name is Fancy and the boy name is Macho. Travis has to enlist Ellie’s help to convince Laurie that these aren’t good choices.

Bobby shares more details of his offer with Andy including the fact that they offered him a free apartment to go with the job. He turned them down because he couldn’t leave his friends. Grayson tries to appeal to Andy that Bobby should take the job and do what’s best for him, even though it breaks poor Andy’s heart.

Jules shows up at the reenactment and I know that this is a comedy, but her lack of knowledge of the Civil War is a little shocking and not as funny as I think they were going for. She stays to take care of Chick by making him hydrate and wear sunscreen.

Laurie figures out that Trav and Ellie tried to kill her baby names and leaves to complain to Jules. When she gets to the reenactment her water breaks and it’s time to have the baby!

Did anyone else get teary eyed when they named the baby Bobby? Such a sweet moment and a great send off for Bobby as he leaves the show.

Cougar Town “American Dream Plan B” Recap

I am so happy that Cougar Town is back, but so sad that this is the last season!

We left off last season with Laurie (Busy Phillips) and Trav (Dan Byrd) announcing their pregnancy. Jules (Courtney Cox) doesn’t think that they are prepared for a baby yet. Jules wears a Mara Hoffman Snakes Print Midi Dress ($138.05):

mara hoffman

Laurie is under the impression that she will keep her girlish figure throughout the entire pregnancy, much to the amusement of the group. I love her style in a Clover Canyon Floral Sheath Dress ($195):

clover canyon

Flash forward to the end of the pregnancy and Laurie is miserable…and definitely not rocking her tight-a** dresses anymore. I still love her pregnancy look in a sold out Cynthia Vincent Sheer Caftan Silk Dress. I thought this Natori Tatiana Long Caftan ($153.09) is a similar look that Laurie would wear:

Cynthia Vincent

I loved the header for the beginning of Season 6:

Header

So we know that Bobby (Brian Von Holt) left the show for season 6 and I was wondering how they would write him out. They have him talking on the phone to Andy (Ian Gomez) and he is on a golf trip in Georgia. It will be interesting to see what happens with him next. Jules wears a L’AGENCE Contrast Trim Zip Front Silk Blouse ($89.97). I thought this Vince Camuto Sleeveless Colorblock Blouse ($59.99) was similar:

lagence

Ellie (Christa Miller) is having fun tormenting Laurie as usually, but Laurie isn’t having any of it with four weeks left to go. Ellie wears the sold out Rag & Bone Marissa Cardigan. This White House Black Market Colorblock Cardigan ($88) is similar:

rag and bone

Jules spends some time teaching Laurie the perks of being pregnant, this goes well until Laurie takes it too far. On the flip side Grayson (Josh Hopkins) helps Trav prepare for a baby with a baby pig! (Love this part!). Laurie gets Jules to agree to stop drinking wine until she has the baby. Laurie wears a pink hi-lo maxi with a jean jacket. I liked this SugarLips Hand Over Heart Neon Pink Dress ($61) to recreate the look:

sugarlips dress

Jules tries to convince the rest of the group that they have to join in but as you can imagine that doesn’t go over very well. Jules wears the Barry Shirt by Frank & Eileen ($198). This Ralph Lauren Striped Cotton Shirt ($89.50) is similar:

barry

When Andy asks Ellie how they will make it through the month, she tells him by cheating. Ha! They just have to find a place where nobody will think to look for them. She wears a floral blouse. I found a similar Women’s Woven to Knit V-Neck Blouse – Black Rainn from Target ($29.99):

floral blouse

Enter Tom’s (Bob Clendenin) basement speakeasy. Tom has never been cooler! That is until he starts tweeting pictures and Laurie finds out and they are all in trouble.

In the meantime, Jules reveals that she can squeal like a pig which she has to do in order to find the pig that Travis lost. Sort of showing that Jules will always come to the rescue.

Cougar Town “Learning to Fly” Recap

Oh how I’ve missed Grayson’s (Josh Hopkins) guitar songs, haha! This one was to celebrate the annual cul-de-sac garage sale. It was only fitting that this was the opening credit for this week:

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 11.46.49 AM

I love that the first thing Grayson wants to get rid of is the ice cream maker! We have one and haven’t used it yet, maybe that should be a blog post soon haha! Then the second item was used crutches, which if you recall I also have. Maybe John and I should have a swordfight too?

Jules is wearing the sold-out Aqua Plaid Zip Top. I found a similar look with this Vans Prenna Top ($30.99):

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 12.56.18 PM

Andy (Ian Gomez) on the other hand is a garage sale expert. He is prepared for anything, but Ellie (Christa Miller) is less than enthused. She makes a bet with Andi that if she can go without being snarky to the yard sale customers than he will get rid of everything he has purchased at the last five yard sales. If she loses then she has to wear an inflatable sumo suit.

Travis (Dan Byrd) is going through Bobby’s (Brian Van Holt) boat for items to sell at the garage sale and stumbles upon great grandpappy’s ashes. Bobby was supposed to scatter them while on a roller coaster, but he is too afraid to do it.

As Jules and Laurie (Busy Phillips) man the garage sale, I couldn’t help but notice Laurie’s fantastic shoes! I couldn’t find an exact match, but I found some similar black and gold pumps. This Truth or Dare pumps by Madonna ($99.99) and these Luichiny pumps ($59.96) are equally awesome:

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 3.06.57 PM

Jules is fast and furiously trying to unload her junk to yard sale customers, but Laurie tells her that she needs to watch out for karma. She doesn’t listen and literally gets crapped on by karma…a.k.a. a bird. Jules wears a sold-out Grid Block Tee from JCrew. I thought this Peach Love Cream Colorblock Chevron Blouse ($27.99) was a similar look:

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 4.46.59 PM

Later that day as they decide to enjoy a bottle of bubbly, Jules tries to convince Laurie that there is no such thing as karma. As she pops the cork, it bounces off the cabinet and hits Big Tippi, NOOOOOOO! May Big Tippi rest in peace…

big tippi

Losing Big Tippi, makes Bobby feel even worse about not being able to give grandpappy a proper send off. Travis tries to help Bobby get over his fear of roller coasters by simulating a ride. It doesn’t go very well and Bobby is still terrified of roller coasters.

Andi and Grayson try to get Ellie to break her snark-free day by torturing her with his ridiculous yard sale purchases. She wears a sold-out Rag & Bone long-sleeved houndstooth printed tee. I found the same print in a short-sleeved tee ($62.50) and a shell ($129):

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 8.01.35 PM

Ellie realizes that Andy set her up so he could buy loads of yard sale stuff and she couldn’t say anything.

Laurie advises Jules to do a lot of good deeds to make up for her bad deeds, so she spends the day helping others and telling the truth to her clients. She finally thinks she is off the hook, but then a car crashes through her office! Ellie stops by at the perfect moment to see everything go down, but has to leave so she doesn’t break her no snark challenge. She wears an interesting Veronica Beard Stretch Wool Jacket Blazer ($695):

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 9.39.59 PM

Ellie gets caught getting her snark-fix on random people in the street by Andy so she will have to wear the sumo suit anyways.

Travis offers to go to the amusement park for Bobby and release grandpappy’s ashes. The whole family comes out to support him and ride the roller coaster with him.

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 10.29.00 PM

Now that they group has mourned Big Tippi they are able to welcome the newest member of the gang…Big Sue!

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 10.38.54 PM

If you’re feeling a little nostalgic, you can buy your very own Big Joe from Cafepress ($17.99).

Cougar Town “Hard on Me” Recap

On this episode of Cougar Town, Jules (Courtney Cox) worries that Ellie (Christa Miller) might be getting sick…and that means bad news for the gang. Apparently, sick Ellie can lead to disastrous consequences.

Title Image

Ellie wears the Helmut Lang Obstructed Borders Sweater ($346.27). This long-sleeve top from Heather ($49.50) is a great look for less:

Ellie Helmut Lang

Chick (Ken Jenkins) is depressed after his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, so Jules tries to figure out how she can cheer him up. At the same time, Andy (Ian Gomez) gets caught sleeping on the job as mayor. Andy decides to organize a 5K to distract the public from his scandal and Jules can get Chick involved because he used to be a track coach. Jules wears the sold-out Splendid Soho Stripe Henley in coral. You can get the same henley in black at 6 p.m. for $39.99:

Jules Henley

I also have to pause to celebrate the introduction of the “cough tail” which is a mixture of cough syrup and wine for Ellie (amazing!).

Grayson (Josh Hopkins) decides that he misses acting and Bobby (Brian Van Holt) convinces him to never give up on a dream by finding him a great opportunity for a handsome man over 40. He goes on the audition and ends up winning the part!

Jules gets Chick pumped up to train the group to participate in the 5K. What she didn’t realize was what a hard-ass trainer he would be. Laurie (Busy Phillips) makes a deal with the devil…a.k.a. Ellie to get her sick so she doesn’t have to train for the 5K.

chick training

One by one, the group falls – Travis (Dan Bryd), Tom (Bob Clendenin) and Bobby. Andy discovers what they are doing and they get him sick too! Jules ends up snapping at Chick because of his tyrant behavior. She wants to quit, but Grayson convinces her to set a good example and not give up.

Grayson discovers that his commercial is really for a low-testosterone gel for men. Not exactly what he was hoping for. Bobby ends up convincing him to stick with his dreams and that they cast him to be the young stud that all the old guys wish they could be. He makes a good point:

bobby quote

Jules finds Chick and they make up. She convinces him not to give up on life and decides to run the 5K after all. Jules wears the sold-out Madewell Mini-Check Market Popover. The Everyday Gingham Shirt from Forever 21 ($15.80) is a good match:

Jules plaid

Jules crosses the finish line with a little help from her friends and Grayson’s commercial ends up being pretty hilarious.

Cougar Town “The Trip to Pirate’s Cove” Recap

This week on Cougar Town, Ellie (Christa Miller) is enjoying the perks of being the mayor’s wife – drinking wine in public, handicapped parking, free stamps and getting the fire department to open jars for you. She’s living the life.

Laurie wears an orange hi-low dress with a cute jean jacket. I found this Culture Phit Lacie High-Low Dress ($67.99) and 1969 Gap Denim Jacket ($69.95) to recreate the look:

Screen Shot 2014-03-07 at 9.02.18 PM

Jules (Courtney Cox) wears the sold-out JCrew Boy Shirt.  This Everyday Plaid Shirt from Forever 21 ($19.80) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-03-07 at 9.16.05 PM

Our opening credits this week – hooray Pirates!

Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 8.02.40 AM

It’s Buccaneer Week and as mayor, Andy (Ian Gomez) has to help things run smoothly or the town might oust him as mayor. What he really needs is some help from Charming Ellie.

buccaneer week

Ellie wears the Schoolboy Blazer from JCrew ($198) and a sold-out wheat print blouse from Phillip Lim. I used this Classiques Entier Flawless Jersey blouse to recreate the look ($110):

Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 8.29.02 AM

While Grayson’s (Josh Hopkins) bar is booming, Laurie’s Krazy Kakes business is flailing. She needs to find a way to get parents to purchase cakes for their kids. Tom (Bob Clendenin) asks Laurie to make a dirty cake for a bachelor party and she agrees. She wears a black polka dot Jessie Steele Apron from Layla Grace ($32) and a pink dress with cut-out sleeves. I found some similar style dresses from Gibson ($58) and Eliza J ($54.97) and this Aqua Multicolor Bib Necklace ($34) to complete the look:

Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 10.11.03 AM

Buccaneer Week is going smoothly, until Bobby (Brian Van Holt) stumbles upon killer jellyfish and decides to warn the town to stay out of the water. Unfortunately, it is a big week for Gulfhaven and they can’t have the beaches close because they would lose tourist money. To keep his job, Andy has to let everyone know that he doesn’t believe Bobby’s jellyfish story and Bobby is crushed. Andy convinces Bobby to publicly address the town and smooth things over, but he just makes it worse for Andy.

In the meantime, Ellie has to become Charming Ellie to charm Gulfhaven’s ladies who lunch. Jules can’t believe Ellie’s transformation and dubs her “Chellie.” It’s all going well until Ellie finds out that Jules likes Chellie better. Jules wears a red sleeveless blouson dress and Ellie wears a sold-out Vince colorblock cardigan. I found a similar Adrianna Papell Blouson Dress ($138) and Gabriella Rocha Sheila Color Block Cardigan ($40.99) to recreate their looks:

Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 3.59.45 PM

Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 4.12.16 PM

Laurie’s naughty Krazy Kakes are taking off, but Grayson warns her that she is on a slippery slope. Eventually, she has to kick all creepy weirdos out of her shop after they take it too far.

1794615_519908528125930_1298020450_n

In the end, Andy and Bobby agree to go and test the water together, but are stung by jellyfish – at least they were together!

Jules convinces Ellie to be herself again, but with a side of Chellie for her so everyone wins!

Cougar Town “Depending on You” Recap

This week on Cougar Town Jules (Courtney Cox) is unable to say no to a couple that she recently sold a house to. Grayson (Josh Hopkins) doesn’t understand why she keeps offering to help them. She wears a Textured Bodycon Dress by Alexander McQueen. I found a Charter Club Floral Print Shift Dress ($89) to recreate the the look:

Screen Shot 2014-02-18 at 10.47.08 PM

I loved the opening credits this week – pretty much every episode…

Screen Shot 2014-02-18 at 10.50.11 PM

Jules also can’t say no to Girl Scout cookies – that’s something we have in common – I love me some Girl Scout cookies! Jules and Grayson get invited to the annoying couple’s wedding, but its on the night of Grayson’s roller hockey finals.

1526386_512587228858060_1245549632_n

I loved Laurie’s (Busy Phillips) outfit in this scene, it was so colorful. She wore a TopShop Cutabout Floral Maxi Dress. This Felicity & Coco Knit Bodice Floral Maxi Dress ($88) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-02-18 at 11.23.49 PM

In the meantime, Bobby (Brian Van Holt) discovers that dog Travis has puppies! The owner isn’t interesting in sharing his pups with Bobby.

Jules insists on going to the wedding and Grayson tries to convince her that she can’t say no to anyone! He RSVPs “no” to the wedding, or so he thinks. They run into the couple at lunch who think they are going to the wedding. Come to find out that Jules changed the RSVP unbeknownst to Grayson. Jules decides that they can do both – attend the wedding and go to Grayson’s hockey game. Jules wears a red and white striped button down with white pants. I found a similar Ralph Lauren Poplin Shirt ($145):

Screen Shot 2014-02-18 at 11.52.36 PM

Laurie and Travis (Dan Byrd) discover that Tom (Bob Clendenin) has a tiny model of the cul-de-sac with replicas of all of the crew. Laurie thinks her doll is too made up, but Travis thinks that is her normal look. She takes offense to this and storms off.

Andy (Ian Gomez) has a bright idea to use Ellie’s (Christa Miller) nastiness to get Bobby custody of dog Travis’ puppies. Side note: Brainstorm has now been replaced with Brainflood. Ellie wears a cloud print blouse by Kenzo. Karen Kane makes a similar print blouse at Nordstrom ($128):

Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 12.19.01 AM

It’s finally time for the wedding, which is being held at Bobby’s boatyard. Jules’ master plan starts out well, as she plans to sneak out of the reception early. This would have been fine except Jules and Grayson got roped into standing up in the wedding. Jules wears a Roberto Cavalli Floral V-Neck Dress. I found a similar floral print Ivy & Blu dress ($100.99):

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 11.51.02 AM

Ellie pulls out her lawyer uniform, which consists of a power suit and her trusty Louboutins. She goes toe-to-toe with the owner of dog Travis’ puppies and much to her surprise he isn’t threatened at all by mean Ellie. I loved her yellow blouse with the black stripe and found a similar Vince Camuto blouse ($79) that would look great with a black suit:

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 4.38.29 PMEllie worries that she has lost her edge, but Andy and Tom inspire her to get back out there and win custody of those puppies!

Travis and Laurie make up with a little help from Tom and his cul-de-sac model. Laurie wears a sold-out BCBGMAXAZRIA Womens Lois Scarf Kimono Dress and the JCrew Lattice Necklace I have been coveting all year. I found a similar Dahlia dress for $79. You can find plenty of Lattice Necklace replicas on eBay:

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 4.59.31 PM

Jules uses her speech at the wedding to profess her love for Grayson and commit to always putting her husband first. It was a sweet turn of events and Grayson was even able to attend his hockey game in the end.

I loved this episode, I am like Jules so that was a great reminder for me to always put my husband first. What did you think about this episode?

CougarTown “Like a Diamond” Recap

This week on CougarTown Courtney Cox and Matthew Perry have a Friends reunion…and could it have been any more AWESOME? (That’s my Chandler for you).

matteney

I also loved the Friends nod in the opening credits:

Screen Shot 2014-02-02 at 2.24.54 PM

To set up this awesome reunion a few things had to happen, first Jules and Grayson’s (Josh Hopkins) heat gets turned off because Jules went paperless and forgot to pay all of the bills. Because it was so cold, her wedding ring kept falling off. As she is on the phone in the car, her wedding ring falls off and she takes her eyes off the wheel to get it – rear-ending who else but Matthew Perry!

Jules wears a Balmain biker jacket ($933.36) and floral top by Parker ($187). This Calvin Klein faux leather moto jacket ($89.99) is similar and also comes in plus sizes.

Screen Shot 2014-02-02 at 3.00.18 PM

Bobby (Brian Van Holt) gets excited because there is a chance of snow – he gets geared up with a snow suit so he can wake up to a winter wonderland and have a father son snowball fight with Travis (Dan Byrd). Bobby, just come to the Polar Vortex…we have plenty.

We find out that Laurie (Busy Phillips) has a doppelgänger that is getting into high jinks all over town. Ellie (Christa Miller) doesn’t believe this and decides that Laurie has lied about all of her crazy stories and sets out to prove it.

Sam (Matthew Perry) is instantly attracted to Jules and wants to forget the whole accident providing she will go on a date with him (how could she say no with that chemistry?). Since she doesn’t have insurance (because she hasn’t paid the bills) she agrees to the faux date.

mattcourtney

We also learn some interesting facts about Laurie – she was conceived in a hottub, pronounced medically dead at least four times, molested by a dolphin, has a friend with robot arms and another with robot legs just to name a few. We seriously need a Laurie spin off backstory show!

After their date, Sam is so smitten with Jules that he proposes to her in the most amazing flashmob proposal ever with a huge engagement ring! Who could say no to that! Nobody apparently, because Jules accepts his proposal even though she is already married!

Jules wears a comfy cashmere hoodie from Autumn Cashmere ($365). I found a similar hoodie from Under Armour ($59.99):

Screen Shot 2014-02-02 at 3.16.58 PM

Even Laurie and Ellie thought it was an amazing proposal, much to Grayson’s chagrin. Jules decides to have dinner with Sam so she can let him down gently. She does this at Grayson’s bar wearing a sold-out floral dress by Jean Paul Gaultier. I found a similar print dress from Dylan & Rose ($34.30):

Screen Shot 2014-02-02 at 3.44.56 PM

Just as she tries to let Sam down easy, he brings in his entire family to meet her!

In the meantime, Ellie finds a hole in Laurie’s story, bringing the whole web down and making her look bad in front of everyone. So to make up, Ellie finds her doppelgänger to show that she believes Laurie’s crazy stories. Laurie wears a great stonewashed jean jacket from Paige Denim ($144.99).

Screen Shot 2014-02-02 at 3.53.38 PM

Grayson, like the great husband he is, saves Jules by professing his love for Jules and proposing to her in front of everyone. Poor Sam is bummed, but mad that he spent $200,000 on everything (holy crap!). But things work out when Laurie’s doppelgänger steps in and asks him to breakfast. Things are looking up for Sam.

And last but not least, Andy (Ian Gomez) keeps Bobby’s dream alive by making it snow for him with a snow machine! Love it!

CougarTown “All or Nothing” Recap

CougarTown is back people!! Get your Big Tippis and join the Cul-de-Sac crew for a drink! In terms of fashion, I think I am a little bit of a Jules and Laurie so I will share a few of my favorite looks each episode.

We are picking up right where we left off with Laurie (Busy Phillips) and Travis (Dan Byrd) starting their relationship (finally!). Jules (Courtney Cox) is having a hard time getting comfortable with her son dating her friend, so she has decided to become a movie buff instead. She wears the J Crew Drapey Elbow-Sleeve Tee ($14.99):

Screen Shot 2014-01-19 at 1.14.49 AM

For those of you that are just getting into CougarTown, it is sort of a joke with the writers that the name doesn’t really fit the show. So they always have a little joke in the opening credits:

Screen Shot 2014-01-19 at 1.07.04 AM

It appears that Penny Can has gone global and Bobby (Brian Van Holt) is getting royalties. Now that he has money, Grayson (Josh Hopkins) decides that he wants to cash in on Bobby’s outstanding bar tab. Bobby doesn’t really get the point of this despite Grayson’s attempts to try to make him understand.

In the meantime, Andy (Ian Gomez) thought it would be a good idea to show Stan Nightmare on Elm Street and now Stan won’t go to sleep. Ellie (Christa Miller) is of the opinion that Andy broke it, so he should fix it.

Trav and Laurie are making out all over the place and Jules is desperately trying to be cool with it, but all of her tells are showing – high-high-fiving, the tone of her voice, and randomly spouting movie quotes whenever she feels uncomfortable. Laurie wears the Lovers + Friends Gracie Dress ($150):

Screen Shot 2014-01-19 at 1.32.28 AM

As if this wasn’t bad enough, she walks in on them getting hot and steamy in the shower. This definitely gives her a reason to drink, not to mention she grabbed Laurie’s “honks” when she fell into the shower. The worst part is that she has a broken wrist to commemorate the occasion. Also, best quotes “This is the first time that one of us has seen Jellybean get Jellyrolled.” Classic.

Cougartown

Jules decides to keep pushing through to show Travis how cool she is with everything by having everyone talk about what they like in the bedroom. Obviously, Travis and Laurie find this weird, poor Trav! Jules wears an adorable hot pink blouson dress and I found a similar Dolce Vita Osana Sheer-Back Dress ($240):

Screen Shot 2014-01-19 at 2.12.21 AM

I LOVED Laurie’s scarf print kimono style dress, which is the sold-out BCBGMAXAZRIA Blue Inesa Draped Scarf Print Dress. There are a few on sale on eBay:

Screen Shot 2014-01-19 at 2.39.19 AM

Jules has to drown her sorrows in Big Tippi:

cougartown big tippi

As Ellie finally realizes, Andy is just going to make the Stan problem even worse, so she steps in and has Tom (Bob Clendenin) to dress up as Freddy Krueger and tell Stan that he is moving away. It almost goes as planned until he ends up scaring Stan at the end.

In order to show Grayson that he appreciates all the free beer, Bobby gives him the used hot tub that he has acquired. It all goes wrong again when Jules catches Trav and Laurie in the hot tub. They just can’t catch a break! In the end they all just agree to power through…until next week that is!

Winter TV Preview

While we have a little hiatus from some of our Fall TV shows, there are some great Winter TV shows starting up in the next few days/weeks. Here are the previews of some of the shows I will be watching and a few I will cover on the blog:

January 5

The Bachelor (ABC)

Juan Pablo is the new bachelor and because of him we are celebrating “Juan-uary” this month. ABC is doing something different this season by having a variety of specials on the Sunday night before the show airs. This helpful calendar lets you know what is happening when:

Juan-uary

Juan Pablo was on Desiree’s season of the Bachelorette (you can see Bachelorette recaps here) and who doesn’t love a man with an accent?

January 7

Cougar Town (TBS)

CougarTown

This is my absolute favorite show right now! I LOVE Cougartown! I can’t wait to cover this one on the blog and find a giant wine glass to drink out of while watching it. Hooray to Season 5!

January 19

The Following (FOX)

John and I watch this show together and it couldn’t be creepier but we love it. You never know what is going to happen next. I wouldn’t recommend watching it before bedtime though. Now that Joe Carroll is presumably dead, I’m guessing that Emma (Valorie Curry) is going to pick up where he left off.

Black Sails (STARZ)

This one caught my fancy as it is a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, following the adventures of a young John Silver as he joins the crew of Captain Flint. Plus I love pirates…and Michael Bay is the executive producer so you know it will be good.

Dallas (TNT)

Picking up where we left off after J.R. Ewing’s death it will be interesting to see how John Ross and family pick up the pieces in Season 3. I got caught up with this show last year and it is awesome!

The Americans (FX)

John and I started watching this and got about halfway through. I really want to get caught up so we can watch Season 2 – mostly because I love Keri Russell in this!

What shows will you be watching this winter? What are you most looking forward to? Let me know if there are other shows you think I should check out and which shows you want me to recap.
