Which of these makes my day best?



Or


Or

The fact that I just bought 4 OPI nailpolishes 2 pricey hair products and a few other goodies for more than 50% off?

Or

That I get to spend the evening with a large portion of my favorite people? Including, but not limited to these lovely ladies?

P.S... Please do not miss the opportunitiy to watch the magic that is the videos posted above.

A little sunshine does a lot of good

And a lot of making me not want to work. But that is for another post. One of our favorite friends came in town this weekend. And to celebrate his arrival, his job interview {which we hope he gets so he lives by us} and the fact that the sun actually showed its face I took the day off work and we headed to the beautiful Oregon coast. We were so lucky to get such a fabulous day in the middle of February. And while hobbling around the rocky beach in my boot was rather challenging, I am so glad we made the trip.Being outside in the sun did wonders rejuvenating Ty and I. We spent the afternoon on the beach, eating some Mo's clam chowder {I agree with Mal on the meh} and then enjoying some divine Tillamook ice cream {which was definitely not meh}.

Then to finish up a lovely day I went and got my hair cut...which always makes a good day even better.

Thanks for coming to visit Lou! Come back soon.

Breakfast At Tiffanys

I am a total sucker for a good chick flick {as you all know}. And I was reminded last night that they just don't make them like they used to. You know what else they just don't make like the used to? Beautiful male movie stars. George Peppard was to die for. And have you seen a Clark Gable movie? Right. Exactly.

I cannot believe that I waited nearly 24 years before seeing Breakfast at Tiffanys. It was wonderfully witty and sweet and romantic and I loved every second of it. Audrey Hepburn really is perfection.

Just look at them. Could you die?



This movie was so enchantingly glamorous and I loved Audrey Hepburn's character quite. a. lot. If you have not seen this movie please call me and we will watch it together because it is lovely. And I want to see it approximately eleventy more times. Luckily I have an awesome friend who knows me well and knows that this movie was right up my alley and told me I need to get on seeing it STAT! My oh my was she correct. This one is a must see.

No more weather updates for me!

I have decided that I am going to stop checking the weather. I am so tired of seeing this
or this
every single time I look that I don't think I can stand much more of it. I am just going to enjoy beautiful days like today when they arrive. I am going to go wander the streets in the sunshine instead of sitting at my desk. Because it seems that every time the sun comes out and I get my hopes up that because today is so beautiful tomorrow will definitely be beautiful and I will be able to go to the coast! or for a hike! or a walk! or play tennis! {now this is all figurative of course seeing as how in my cripple state I can currently do none of the above} it is pretty much a sure thing that tomorrow will be gray and rainy. Typical. So with that in mind I am going out for a very long lunch in the sun.

{Hopefully I wont get attacked by anyone holding a clipboard claiming to save the world one polar bear at a time. Wish me luck. I know that is dreaming big in this city.}

If I had more money than I knew what to do with- I would look very hot at the Grammys. But thats just me.

I was confused by the vast majority of dresses I saw at the Grammys this year. I was vastly underwhelmed which is always a disappointment. So to kill some time on a slow afternoon at work here is some totally useless and probably quite boring commentary on a few of our celeb friends dresses.

I am admittedly not a huge Beyonce fan. But I know this woman can work a fierce look. But this thick and heavy geometric boob zipper look combined with the two tone yucky hair does nothing for her...or me. Lets leave the yellow hair to Gaga okee? I mean, for someone who has great curves, this dress is not the answer. It looks like carpet.
I don't even know where to begin with this. First of all- where did she come from? I must have missed the whole Ke$ha thing. $ Sign? Really? She is so trashy and squinty eyed I can't even believe they let her onto the red carpet. I have not seen anyone try to so hard to pull off that "too cool to care about the Grammys/anything at all because I am just SO punk" vibe since Avril Lavigne. And the amount of glitter on her eyes and her feathery rat tail is whisking me back to 8th grade when that may have barely passed for acceptable {okay maybe not the rat tail. That was really never acceptable- not even if you put a feather in it to add a little bling}. Lets all hope she has had her 5 minutes of fame and next year the red carpet will not be sodened with her trashiness.

And speaking of missing things...I must have missed the memo that announced leotards were the new pants/dress {and we are excluding Lady Gaga here because she is just...well...Gaga- and I don't think anyone would mistake what she wears for acceptable fashion}. I will give Brit credit for the very nice new brunette look. I like it. And I will give Ciara credit for being so gorgeous it makes me feel that life is not fair. But really? Leotards on the red carpet? Leotards anywhere?! Why? Not even Gaga tried that one. A lacey/fish net layer does not constitute an outfit. Not even when you add really fancy lace.

I have to admit that I totally love Taylor Swift. She is adorable and sweet and her little songs about puppies and sunshine and princes have totally won me over. Granted she is really not very good live. I wish she was. She was fairly awful in her performance with Stevie Nicks. But she usually looks awesome and adorable so you can forgive her mediocrity on the stage. But that is not exactly the case here. I really want to like this dress...but I can't. I really tried. I think if this had been a little shorter, or the strange square cut out would not have been there I would have loved it. She just feels sort of grandmaish. I love that she put her hair up for once in her life. I also love that she is not wearing white for once in her life. And I have a thing for sequins and sparkle. But this dress just doesn't do it for me. I think it hangs very strangely right over her stomach. I don't know. I guess I can give her a B for the effort because it is not awful- but something is just not right here.I think Gaga should have won a Grammy simply for walking all the way down the carpet in those shoes without breaking her spine. Upon first seeing her I sighed and though "Oh Lady Gaga give it a rest!" Her same old insane routine does get a little tired, especially since I think she is actually really beautiful and extremely talented. However, I do sort of love that this was made by Armani and is quite cool looking. And I have to admit that I don't hate the yellow hair. And probably just because she is Lady Gaga I decided that I can roll with this. And I mean, at least her vajay is totally covered and the worst thing that could happen with this outfit is to get speared by that spikey star. Considering what we are working with, I would say this was a success. I hate every single thing about Rihannas dress. Mostly I hate that it is white. And then maybe that it looks like she is wearing a feather neck brace. Or maybe it is because it makes her hips look like a house. Or maybe is the poorly colored hair. Or maybe because the bottom looks like drapery that she pulled off her wall and cinched up with some safety pins. Or maybe its the Alice in Wonderland feel. Or those yucky sleeves. Hard to say really...And then we have Lea Michele. Thank heavens she showed up or the whole night would have been a disaster. She looks completely adorable. I am dying over this dress. Just one more reason why I love Glee. Thank you Lea Michele/stylist of Lea Michele.
{Sigh of relief}
