Just When Phillip Came Back!!!!

GUIDING LIGHT will broadcast its final episode on Friday, Sept. 18, 2009. At the time of its final broadcast, the series will have spanned 72 years and more than 15,700 episodes on television and radio.
I grew up with the Bauer and the Lewis families! I celebrated all of my holidays with them! (Love the Bauer BBQ for July 4th!) It's like an old friend is leaving...I DVR it every day still!


  1. Aww! That just stinks. I DVR Days of Our Lives. My cousin and I do weekly re-caps for each other. :-)

  2. I'm like that with Days. I'm so scared that it will leave me one day!

    I'm so sorry for your loss!

  3. I cried the first day of kindergarten. Not because I missed my mommy, & not because the kid next to me at lunch stole my chocolate milk. I cried because no one bothered to tell me that we wouldn't be watching Guiding Light & The Young & the Restless. I vowed to never go back. My mom had to tape both shows daily just so I could watch them when I got home! It's so sad! I am crossing my fingers that Y&R doesn't get axed--I think I'll die!

  4. I don't even watch this show and I'm kind of sad. A show on for so long. . .shouldn't you just get to stay?

  5. 72 years! Isn't that something??

  6. I was totally and completely addicted to this show when my kids were little. I agreed to name my youngest Josh because I'm still in love with Josh Lewis--hot guy who's my age! And I started decorating my house with lighthouses back before they got really popular as an homage to my favorite show--believe it or not, it used to be difficult to find pictures of lighthouses. Hard to imagine now. I thought that their casting director was a genius because those people really looked like they were related (Alan, Alexandria, and Philip in particular--it was almost freaky).

    About 12 years ago, I went cold turkey and haven't watched soaps since. I will turn it on occasionally and see who's still on it, but I loved the days of Frank and Eleni, Mallett and Harley, Josh and Reva, Ross and Holly, Ed and Maureen, Vanessa and Billy, etc. so much.....well, now they've all moved on. I was going to blog about this tomorrow, since today is Josh's birthday and I didn't want to steal his spotlight!

    But I am sad, even though I don't watch it anymore. It was truly an icon.

  7. Truly the end of an era. I have been watching General Hospital since 1982 and have recently found it to be so bad that I am thinking of stopping my daily DVR.

    PS: ready when you are to talk blog headers!

  8. I knew exactly what you were talking about when I read your title.

    I am so sad! I, too, grew up watching GL. It has & always will be my favorite TV show ever!

  9. Guiding Light was gateway TV for me -- my mom always watched it and I thought sitting down in the middle of the day to fold laundry, drink a Coke and watch Guiding Light was the most grownup and sophisticated thing you could possibly do.

  10. Sad to see a show with such a long history cancelled. Maybe if they left Josh and Reva together things would be different:)

  11. Oh no...I watch this show ever day! I was never so happy to see Bill and Lizzie finally reunited!

    I can't believe it is ending. I'm so sad.

  12. what a run! When I came home from high school, my Mom would be watching "the guiding light", and I graduated high school in 1973, wow! What will Lisa and Bob do now? (are they still on?)

  13. I remember when Reba first got on the show and her sister worked in the brothel that looked like a scene out of a old Texas Western....

    My grandma watched that show and every day after school I'd have to sit quietly until it was over!

  14. OMG! I had no idea! I too grew up watching this soap. (All the CBS soaps actually) Somewhere in time, I dwindled my list of soaps down to just As The World Turns, but I would still occasionally catch an episode of GL or Y&R. Now that I have Reagan to chase around all day long, it's been ages since I have watched any soaps. I can't believe GL is leaving the air! I will certainly have to start DVRing so that I can see how it all ends.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
