Oh, Oprah


I have been feeling a sense of obligation to religiously watch Oprah's final season.
We've never been huge Oprah watchers in our house. (Well...except for that year I had two babies under two years old and never left the house; I'm pretty sure "Oprah" was Evie's fourth word.)

Thus, out of principle (it's the end of an era!), I will watch The Farewell Season and do 'The Ugly Cry' and have 'Aha Moments' and be mildly envious of her extravagant give-aways.

Quick note: Do you know that I cry during almost every episode of the Oprah show? I do. It's almost a requirement.
Do you also know that I cried the hardest when Oprah gave away Vera Wang wedding gowns to all the brides in her studio audience? More than when she gave someone a house, more than when she paid of 70,000 dollars worth of student loans, more than when she sent a SAHM to Italy, more than when she sent everyone in her audience to Australia. The dresses trumped it all.

Will you be watching this season?

I used to watch her, but after her wishy washy New Age "bible study" several years ago. I saw the Australia give-away and will probably tune in from time to time. But, I'm sure it's not the last of Oprah, she's working on something new, I'm sure.

my fave line from this post:

I think I will watch just because this line made me laugh so hard!!

Nope. Never been a fan of Oprah. Wouldn't mind one of her give aways though :)
