old soul

 I think it's safe to say that I've always been an "old soul." 
As a little girl, I always thought I was so grown up, and I suppose I kind of was...
My parents let me cook on my own somewhere around 3rd grade (seems crazy to me now?!), I penny-pinched every birthday check I ever received, and I had a full time babysitting job by age 12. What can I say, I loved (still do;)) to be in charge! This all makes me laugh looking back now, but I'm definitely still an old soul. On any given day spent at home, you could find me watching all sorts of game shows. I love them. I think I got this trait from my grandma. She's a game show fanatic...she just giggles the whole time she watches them :) Among my favorites are...

Deal or No Deal
I used to watch this with my family when it first came out, and now I find myself watching reruns on GSN. It amazes me how far people take it, though! I'd probably go home with not as much as I could because I'm no risk taker! But hey, it'd be more than I came with, right?!
 Lingo
I've just started watching this words game show! It's so entertaining. I don't really know why; it just is. I had never even heard of it until a few weeks ago. I probably wouldn't be very good at this game, and you can't win much, but still fun to watch.
 The Newlywed Game
I have ALWAYS loved this show. I can remember watching this and The Dating Game back-to-back before The Price Is Right as a little girl. Of course, back then I had no idea what Bob Eubanks was referring to when he said "whoopie." Oy. Nevertheless, the show has always made me laugh! I wonder how good Rob and I would be at it??
 The Price is Right
Another oldy-but-goody. I liked it better with Bob, but whatevs. My grandma always says she loves the show because the contestants are SO happy, and it's true! They are. Maybe even sometimes overly excitable...new luggage??!! Best day EVER!!! Not.
Who am I kidding, I need new luggage in the worst way...I'd be thrilled too.
Wheel of Fortune
My favorite game show! If I could be on any show, this would be it! 
I'm definitely one of those people yelling at the TV when I watch this. Once again, the risk-takers...they stress me ;-) Not only is this my "dream" game show, but also my dream job. I want to be Vanna when I grow up. Hello...a new gown EVERY day, traveling all over, getting your hair done every day?! No brainer. Sounds ideal to me.

Do you love game shows too?? What's your favorite?

The Newlywed Game! LOVE that show! We don't have GSN (I know, criminal), but I got hooked on Lingo when we were in Vegas. (While other people gambled away their money, I watched GSN:))
