My Friday and 2014 Favorites 01.02.15

Friday Favorites ginghamHappy New Year! 2014 was a good year for my family and for My Color-Coded Life and I hope it was good to you as well!  Thank you for continue to read along with us here.  Today, I will do my yearly wrap-up as my favorites — what I am still reading, watching, and making as we begin 2015.

My Color TV

Shows I am still watching on current TV –
Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, Nashville, Awkward, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Law & Order SVU, Suits, Parenthood, Mad Men (when it returns!)

Questions – MerDer on Grey’s – is this really it?   Will Rayna and Decon finally have their third? fourth? lasting? chance on Nashville? Olivia – #TeamFitz, #TeamJake, #DefeatDad on Scandal?  What will happen to Zeke? Joel and Julia? Amber and her new baby? on Parenthood.

Best new show – Shonda does it again – How to Get Away with Murder.

But I must give My Friday and 2014 Favorite to…

tNeil Caffery Au Revoir White Collar.  After six seasons, we bid au revoir to our favorite crooked FBI agent, Neil Caffrey. The series ended as it should have with the ultimate, final con.

Shows I am ten years behind on and watching on Netflix –
Gilmore Girls!  I never watched it, but I am enjoying it now.  Lorelei is a lot like Sarah from Parenthood – Lauren Graham plays disheveled mother well!
