Oscar Night Recap

I, for one, greatly enjoyed this year's Academy Awards! When I heard Seth Macfarlane was the host I said, this could go really well or really badly, and it will be totally up to how Seth wants to take this that decides how it will be. Well, I have to say that I thought he did a really great job. He really didn't just skewer the audience, and when he did, the actors seemed to be in on the joke, as was evidenced in the "Boob Song." Which was, quite hilarious. I also knew that Seth was a tremendous musician and even came out with a jazz CD, but I didn't know he could sing so well. The numbers that included Channing Tatum, Charlize Theron, Jordan Gordan Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe were such a wonderful surprise. And how about the music this year! Tremendous.
And I am sorry, be he is absolutely adorable.
But we realized that he does share a striking resemblence to a certain Brady son...
They could seriously be father and son.
Anyway, I am SO excited that Argo won this year. I mean, it was the only movie I'd actually seen, that was good. But it's a really good movie. If you haven't seen it, it's worth your time.
And how cute was Ben Affleck's acceptance speech?
Best Dressed of the Night...
Charlize was absolutely stunning!!
Worst everything of the night...
We get it, Kristen. You are too cool for awards shows. You don't care to fix your hair. You don't want to be bothered to stand up straight while one stage. You look like a unpopular kid in high school, begrudgingly accepted by the popular kids but not wanting to be there the whole time. Grow up. Look like an adult. Stand up straight. Fix your hair. Gees!
Best Speech of the Night...
What a classy, classy guy.
Worst Speech of the Night...
I love her. I really do. I think she is as cute as a bug with that hair. But I am glad the awards season is over, because if I had to hear her make one more speech I was just going to have a fit.
Best Surprise Moment of the Night..
What good sports to come out and do that. I really thought Charlize took herself too seriously to come out and do a campy number like that, but apparently I was wrong.
Worst Surprise Moment of the Night...
I am sorry, but what was this about? And what was with the speech? I for one think that stuff like this, celebrity shows that serve no political purpose whatsoever, are for after your family leaves office. NOT for us to see that this is how you are spending your time and our tax payers money on a new dress for the occasion (although, I am pretty sure this was sent to her by some designer). After he is done, you present all of the Academy Awards you want. But right now, being on this show should be the least thing on your mind, no matter how fun it may seem.
This dress is from WHERE?
Did you know that this dress is from H&M? Just sayin. That's cool.
Coolest Couples on the Red Carpet...
There are several! But these are my top four.
How proud did he look of her?
I just love Stacy and George and I love that she always always looks like she is having so much fun!
I don't know why...maybe because his wife looks normal and he loves her so much?
And oh my goodness, I love these people so much too...Ben and Jenn are just awesome.
So, a funny story in our family. My dad USED to watch this show. That is, until travesty struck. He has never forgiven the Academy, and has boycotted the awards when THIS movie...
beat out THIS movie.
I mean, he is right. They get it wrong sometimes, don't they? I mean, you nominated the BEST PICTURE movie but not the DIRECTOR. Morons. Who won? Now I can't even remember. Oh yeah. Ang Lee. Poor Spielburg.
Have a great night everyone!

Great recap! I missed it. I knew my husband wouldn't want to watch so I re ordered it. I wet out for a run. I come back get the baby fed, changed, and settled play and NOTHING! I flip to the last four awards. I agree with you about Anne Hathaway...I feel about her the way I do about Taylor Shift. "Please stop talking and get off the stage." Lol

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Our Trip to Orlando and Universal/Disney Travel Tips! (Long Post!!!)

Well, we just got back from our trip to Orlando! And I am tired and sore, but happy and so very glad we were able to do this as a family! Most of my Facebook peeps saw our pictures, but I wanted to share about our vacation and a little travel tips for those thinking of planning something similiar! 
Use a Travel Agent!
First and foremost - I booked my trip, basically last minute, through the amazing and wonderful Lana Kluge . Booking through a travel agent costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It doesn't make your trip any more expensive and adds nothing to your end bill. What it does do is add a valuable service to your vacation, and that's exactly what Lana offered us. She has been to Disney multiple times and was able to answer all of my many questions up to, and while on, my vacation. Even with booking our resort, we were able to ask where our room was located, as the resort we stayed at (Art of Animation) is very large and I read people saying they had to walk a very long way …
