As a blog reader, I’m sure that you know that I love TV. And this week is a very good week for TV because the shows are BAAAAACK!
I’m especially excited for some of my mid-season shows to return: Downton Abbey (last night), Pretty Little Liars (1/6), and Parks & Rec (1/13)!
Today’s blog post is about the Pretty Little Liars (PLL) premiere TOMORROW on ABC Family. I’m having my friends Liz and Emily over to watch the show and I know that many more of my friends will be watching… even if they pretend that Pretty Little Liars is for pre-teens. (Which it so isn’t!)
If you’re unfamiliar with Pretty Little Liars, here’s a quick tutorial:
Rosewood is a perfect little town. So quiet and pristine, you’d never guess it holds so many secrets. Some of the ugliest ones belong to the prettiest girls in town: Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily, four friends whose darkest secrets have been unraveling since Alison, the Queen Bee of their group disappeared. As the mystery surrounding Ali’s disappearance resurfaces, the girls begin getting messages from a mysterious “A,” who they quickly realize is out to get them. Now, after years of tormenting and numerous shocking revelations, the Liars are united and ready to kick some “A” and uncover the truth! No longer just wanting to sit by and wait for “A’s” latest cruel attack, Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer take matters into their own hands and try to finally put a stop to their tormentor. As relationships are put to the test, new and old secrets are revealed and the stakes are raised higher than ever before as the Liars come closer to the truth. Will all of their sacrifices be worth it in the end?
When Liz and Emily come over, we’re doing it up in full PLL style! Here are some of my ideas for what I’ve coined as:
An “A” food
Autumn apple and sausage scramble
Salad with Apple cider vinegar dressing
Asparagus, Artichoke and Mushroom Saute Over Pasta
Maybe a pizza with a pepperoni “A” on it? (We do have a wood-fired oven in the backyard…)
An “A” pizza? Maybe!!
Or anything arugula! (So many “A” food options!)
A PLL beverage
The Liars are all about coffee, but I’m not, so I’m thinking wine instead. Depending on what I decide for dinner plans, I’m thinking a nice Ravenswood blend, after the PLL spinoff that got cancelled (very sadly) last year.
Since we’re having a party of three (five if you count the cats!), I’ll go easy on the decor, but have to do something!
Here are some of the ideas I’ve found on Pinterest:
“A” letters throughout the house
“A” cookies, pictures, letters, oh my!
Handmade notes, maybe put them in fortune cookies!?
Maybe some homemade wine glasses are in order?!
Very special “A” shot glasses
So many great ideas are swirling in my mind right now! I’m so excited for the premiere and our partAy!
