Weekly Favorites #39

An unprecedented look at the life and legacy of one of America's most enduring 
and influential storytellers.
I am a huge nerd and I love documentaries. I have always found Walt Disney to be terribly interesting. He was a genius and did things that nobody had ever done before or even thought possible. He was set in his ways and could be very difficult to work; he had quite an explosive temper. This 2 part series on PBS makes me think that Disney was the Steve Jobs of his day. 
You can watch both parts on-line until the middle of October. Do it!

My Dreams Have Come True This Week. 
Garth Brooks is coming to Salt Lake City. I have been waiting for this day for over a year since he announced his new album and new world tour. Garth is amazing. I was able to see Garth Brooks when I was around seems like a life time ago. You all have no idea how excited I am. I guess I know what I'm doing over Halloween.

Gwen Top from Gap

I have found my new favorite shirt. It was a new design this year. 
It is 100% Cotton
Soft, breathable micro-pique weave.
Short sleeves.
Exposed zipper at center back.
This shirt is super comfortable. It is thicker and sturdier then a normal t-shirt so you dress it up easily and wear it to work or just wear it with jeans.  I ordered all 6 colors, yes I have a problem.
There is a solid white, gray, and black
They also have a black and white stripe, a red and white stripe and a navy and white stripe.
I just saw this week that there is a new navy and red striped one that was released so I am totally ordering it.

The only down side to this shirt is that it is cotton. I washed my gray one and I accidentally dried it so it shrunk. I hope hoping to wash it and stretch it out.
I give this shirt 5 stars and highly recommend them. 

One of my new Favorite Shows on Netflix
Death in Paradise.

The simple premise: A British detective, is assigned to investigate a murder on the fictional paradise island of Saint Marie in the Caribbean. After he successfully finds the murderer, he is reluctantly required by his supervisors to stay on as the detective inspector (DI) of the island, solving new cases as they appear.
This is very lighthearted and actually quite funny. Its a BBC production about a British detective so you know the humor will be quite dry..but it is so entertaining. If you have finished watching Friends and are looking for something to watch: give this a try.

Catch Up Edition of my Favorite Things #38

Lady Antebellum and Hunter Hayes-the WheelsUp Tour. Lady Antebellum is the one group I will pay to see everytime they come to Utah. They put on such a good show. They did some awesome covers and they sound amazing. 
Plus, I also love Hunter Hayes. Win Win

 Kelly Clarkson. She is is such a great singer, kind of a spaz. She stopped in the middle of one of her songs to hold somebody's baby ha ha. 
I also love Pentatonix. I have never heard any of their music until I heard them open for Kelly Clarkson.

I grew up listening to Shania Twain. I love her and I am so glad I got to see her perform live at least once. 

 I got to go to an outdoor theater in St. George and see this new musical-When You Wish.
MJ and I went to St. George last weekend and saw a show at Tuachan, Disney's When You Wish.
They have songs from Tarzan, Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled and more. It was amazing!
Of Course, after 9 months of waiting I got to go with my niece to see Taylor Swift. We had a blast. I need to do a separate post with all of my pictures. Taylor and I could totally be friends!

I bit the bullet and started Grey's Anatomy. I watched the first episode on Netflix and my reaction was Crap!! I was hooked. This is such a huge commitment. Now, I have like  11 or 12 seasons to catch up on

I went with my sister and her kids to the  Greek Festival  in Salt Lake over the weekend. 
On the ride home she asked what their favorite part of the evening was. Here is their list:

3. The "tacos" we had (lamb gyros).
2. The police car outside the venue.
1. The homeless man passed out in entrance of a parking garage.

Glad we had a good cultural experience.
