When my hubs and I first got together, I was a broke girl. I mean, a real broke girl! In fact, we were a super broke couple. Wanna know how we celebrated our first Christmas together? We were oh so broke, so you know what we did for Christmas? We took $20 bucks each, and went to the Dollar Tree, and bought the other one 20 presents from the Dollar Tree for each other. My sweet hubs even broke the budget and bought me a $3 goldfish and a $2 fish bowl from the pet store next door! It was so silly, we even wrapped our gifts in comic strips from the newspaper. Our tree was one of those $10 three foot trees from Walmart, and we had like 5 ornaments on it! While at the time, I felt really sorry for us, and wished we could do more, I have to say that now looking back on it, that was one of the most special Christmases for us! I remember how sweet it was and how young and dumb we were!
Since I have so much experience being a Broke Girl, I am really in love with the show "Two Broke Girls" on CBS. Have you watched this show? I love it! It is so funny, and such a cute show! In case you haven't heard, 2 Broke Girls is now on MONDAYS at 8:30/7:30 c on CBS! If you haven't had a chance to watch this show yet, I would definitely recommend checking it out, or at least setting your DVR to record it, you will love it! If you haven't seen the show on lately, note that it is now on at a new time, so make sure you look for it!
Do you have no idea what I am talking about? Here's some info:
2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about the unlikely friendship that develops between two very different young women who meet waitressing at a diner in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and form a bond over their dream of one day owning their own successful cupcake business. Only one thing stands in their way – they’re broke. Sarcastic, street-smart Max Black met the sophisticated, school-smart Caroline Channing when the uptown trust fund princess was having a run of bad luck due to her father’s Wall Street scandal, which caused her to lose all her money and forced her to give waitressing a shot. At first, Max sees Caroline as an entitled rich girl, but she’s surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max’s knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she visualizes a lucrative future for them and they begin to save money to reach their start-up money goal of $250,000. As the girls’ cupcake tally expands week-to-week, they become closer to their goal and to each other. At the diner they are surrounded by their offbeat, colorful “work family”: Oleg, an overly flirtatious cook; Earl, a hip 75-year-old cashier; Han, the eager-to-please owner of the diner; and Sophie, the girls’ outrageous upstairs neighbor. As Max and Caroline climb toward their goal, we see that their “smarts” plus their “hearts” might just be the recipe for success.
ON AIR: Mondays (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT)
