Never thought I would...


My Hubsy's guilty pleasure.

Many a night we are laying in bed, me reading and Hubsy watching episodes of Duck Dynasty on his iPad.  He graciously watches with his headphones on so it doesn't distract my reading.  I'll be all engrossed in my book and he'll be next to me snickering and snorting.  Sometimes he can't contain it and laughs out loud almost waking up Bubba. I usually just roll my eyes and go back to my book. 

Yesterday was Hubsy's birthday and after gorging ourselves on dinner and ice cream he wanted to veg and watch Duck Dynasty together.  This was the ONLY way he was going to get me to sit and watch an entire episode.  Yep, he played the "but it's my birthday" card.

Ends up I watched 3 episodes in a row with him.  And you know what?  I actually liked it.  Oh sure there was plenty of played up redneck antics to roll your eyes at but you know what I found to be the redeeming quality?  The emphasis these people put on God and family.

What really struck a chord with me is how every episode ends with Willie Robertson summarizing the events and sharing a lesson learned.  Then the family gathers around the table praying together and sharing a meal and fellowship.  In these days of reality TV, it is refreshing to see some traditional values and hearing a "moral of the story" at the end.  A rare find indeed.

I may not watch every episode but I'll be much more willing to indulge Hubsy when he wants me to watch it with him.  It was kinda fun....ssshhhh....don't tell anyone I said that ;)

Happy Friday all!

**Thank you to all who offered prayer and condolences for the passing of my sweet Gram, it was so very appreciated**

  4. OH my goodness, I LOVE this post!!! Because I love Duck Dynasty!!! It is totally (one of many) my guilty pleasure!! What's funny is that I watch it more than my husband. He doesn't really understand why I like it so much, but I just do! Not only are they hilarious, but like you said, I love how at the end they all gather around the table to share prayer and lessons learned. ~ Have a beautiful day!! :)
