Yet another confession: I'm hooked. Smitten, in fact. 

This time it is not a handbag or jaunty dog jacket that caught my eye, but a TV show:  The Voice

I stumbled upon it over the weekend and was instantly entranced. 

I laughed. 

I cried. 

I had to cover Little Miss Thang's ears on numerous occasions. 

It was family fun at it's finest. 

Watching these young, impressionable singers praised by some of their singing idols - oh, it reminds me that dreams do indeed come true. And watching the nervous parents / spouses / siblings in the wings, well, they had me at "his mother died a year ago." 

Pit in stomach. 

Lump in throat. 

That boy must win. It all. 

Of course, as with most pop culture, I'm a bit late to the party. This doesn't stop me in the least. In order to bring the entire family up to speed we spent a few hours all last night watching each and every Blind Audition and Battle Round. 

Yes, imagine our entire family {dogs included, of course} smooshed on the couch and staring at the 13" laptop screen. I'm certain a techy family would stream the internet on their TV, but we enjoy the old fashion charms of watching TV on the laptop. So very Little House on the Prairie of us. 

Suffice to say, we are now up to speed and ready for the live performances on Tuesday night.  

I cannot wait. 

And while I am clearly impressed with all of the coaches {and who isn't impressed by Cee Lo, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton} and the teams they have chosen, I've officially drawn the line in the sand:  Team Adam is where I stand.  

Join me tomorrow night at 9/8c. I'm be tweeting up a storm {@amyeatlivelaugh}. Crying like a baby. And undoubtedly explaining to my duo some inappropriate reference such as that made at the end of Battle Round 4 when Blake Shelton informed the dueling {and then kissing} opponents they were supposed to "duet" not "do it."

Like I said: family fun at it's finest!
