I’ve been “Gilmored”!

Around the middle of December, I started watching The Gilmore Girls on Netflix.  I have watched them before. The show was on television from 2001- 2007 and I would catch an episode every now and again, and when channels are running reruns, I am sure to watch as well, even if I have seen the episode a million times.  Gilmore Girls episodes are like fine wine, they get better with time.

From the very first episode I was hooked!  I binged watched, all 7 seasons.  Yes, I am addicted.  I love all the characters and I love the town “Stars Hollow”.  When I watched the last episode, I cried. NO!  Not because of the way the series ended, it was because it was the LAST EPISODE and it was over, I would be missing all of my fictional townsfolk and my fictional town of Stars Hollow. I am now watching it again, all 7 seasons, and even though I  know how they end- I STILL hope it ends differently… Crazy.. I know…

Stars Hollow may be a fictional town, but there are many of us, (you know who you are) in the world that are in search of this town.  We want to live there.  We also want all those crazy, quirky townies in attendance as well.  Yes, even Kirk. The man that sells everything and has every single job ever!!

This quaint little town is in Connecticut, and instead of giving you all the history of how Stars Hollow came about I am going to refer you to Amy’s blog, Finding Stars Hollow.   Amy does a great job of telling you all the ins and outs of Stars Hollow. She also shows you places that are very similar to Stars Hollow, of course you won’t find all the key components of SH in one town- I guess that’s why it is a fictional town.

Can we talk about the fact that Netflix is going to do a series revival of the Gilmore Girls?!!! To that I say YAY!!!!!

The story goes, as I have read, that Netflix is planning on doing 4  one and a half hour episodes, each depicting the 4 seasons of an entire calendar year.  You can read more about it here.  I wonder where Rory will be, will she be working for the Obama administration in some capacity? Who will be her love interest?

Can we talk about Rory’s love interests, for just a moment please?

Dean was great!  I loved him as a boyfriend for Rory, sweet and responsible (except when he slept with Rory while married to his wife). As Lorelai had said, he was the perfect starter boyfriend.

How about Jess?  When he first showed up he was so disrespectful.  He was okay towards the end of his time on the Gilmore Girls, when he got his crap together and was much nicer.  He wrote a short novel, and seemed to have grown-up a little.

Rory’s last boyfriend, Logan?   Well he makes me crazy.  I really, really, really dislike him.  He is so condescending, has an air about him and unfortunately reminds me of my first real boyfriend.  Logan’s family dynamic is so similar to that of my unfortunate first real boyfriends’ family.  There was a particular breeding that was optimal, and I didn’t fit the mold. (Thank you God)! That hideous broken heart I suffered from my freshman year at MSU brought me to where I am today.  I landed in a very great place, with Mr. Swellsewing!  He is my Knight and Shining Armour and the love of my life.

So who is your wish? Who would you like Rory to end up with? I know I don’t want it to be Logan.

Now let’s talk about Luke and Lorelai, shall we? First before I say anything, I want to say spoiler alert!  Just in case there is someone out there, that hasn’t watched the series yet….

They ended the Gilmore Girls series with Luke and Lorelai embracing and kissing in the middle of the street.  At the time they were broken up, AGAIN.  The camera panned away- with an ongoing long kiss.


That’s where they left us!  How rude!  Right?!  So, one thing that bugs me about Luke and Lorelai being engaged……they never, ever say to each other “I love you”.  HOW can you get engaged to someone, and not say those 3 words to the person you plan on marrying? It makes absolutely no sense! It’s a mystery to me, I hope when we visit Stars Hollow again, Luke and Lorelai are together and they exchange those 3 little words with one another.

I guess time will tell.

There is still time to catch up before the revival- so get watching!! AND stay away from the “Pickles”!


  1. Oh my goodness! When I saw the title of this article I eagerly clicked it, almost giddy-like, hoping it was somehow about Gilmore Girls. I love that show! You’ve reminded me that I too need to binge watch the series. I’m sooooo going to have some very tired days! 🙂

  2. Hi Tracey! I was looking at some of Jennifer’s recent Sew South postings and saw that you were lucky enough to attend her latest retreat – good for you! So, I’ve been catching up on your goings on and noticed that your son attends Michigan State – well, my husband and I are in the process of moving to Grand Ledge just west of Lansing…what a coincidence!
    Anyway, Ive enjoyed reading all your posts about your quilts and your fabric designs. Hope to see you again at a future Sew South or other retreat! If you get to Michigan, look me up!

    • Hi Kit! Howw are you? So great to hear from you! Yes, sew south was great. The newer smaller size is really good. I think it makes it easier to meet everyone and create closer relationships. Grand Ledge, exciting for you! Are you moving for work? Next time I am in Michigan, maybe we could meet at State, for some Coffee or something, I would love to catch up. Do you attend any of those sewing retreats in Michigan, or by Michigan, there is a new one in Wisconsin, created by Trina_Peterson (were you there at Sew South when she was?YOu can look her up on instagram) and another lady, called Modern Stitching Affair, Betz White is teaching at it, it looks fun and there are still spots open- I just love going to retreats and seeing peeps I know already and meeting new ones. Well, thanks for stopping by-let’s stay in touch!!xxoo
