Marathon Weekend

For lots of people here in Dallas it was the big marathon weekend! The White Rock Marathon. For me however, it was a THAT GIRL Marathon Weekend. TVLand had something like a 48-hour marathon of the That Girl reruns. In case you're not familiar, That Girl was the CUTEST show starring Marlo Thomas that was originally aired even before I was born. Marlo played Ann Marie who was a struggling actress in New York and she was super happy and cute and sort of like a modernized I Love Lucy. What I love best about the show is all of Marlo Thomas's outfits!!! She is my new fashion icon.

I remembered the theme song but what I learned this weekend was that the theme song was only instrumental until the 5th season?! It took 5 long years for these brilliant lyrics to come together:

Diamonds, Daisies, Snowflakes, That Girl!
Chestnuts, Rainbows, Springtime
Is That Girl, she's tinsel on a tree
She's everything a girl should be!

Sable, popcorn, white wine, That Girl!
Gingham, bluebirds, broadway
Is That Girl, she's mine alone but luckily for you
If you find a girl to love, only one girl to love
Then she'll be that girl too...

I didn't watch all 48 hours of That Girl, but I watched way more than I think I should admit here. But what a guilty pleasure!! I hadn't seen That Girl in probably more than 30 years and so it was like watching a brand new show. I'm hoping TVLand will start airing episodes regularly now. But until then, you can check it all out on the That Girl official website at
