My Absolute Favorite Oscars Look

Hello, friends. I could tell you that life has been crazy busy and I just haven't had time to blog but quite frankly, I haven't had much to share. Maybe that's because life is busy or maybe its just because sometimes the thought of sitting down to write a post seems really daunting. I did make a point to watch the Oscars last night as I have not missed an award show red carpet or actual show all season. Of course last night, I fell fast asleep before any of the awards I actually cared about were announced. I am so bummed I miss J Law in real time but the You Tube version was good, too. 

I think the ladies have been knocking it out of the park this award season! While I really liked, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, and Jennifer Garner, my absolute favorite look of the night was this:

Because I really don't care at all about Les Miserables, have no desire to see play or movie, and really don't understand the draw, I have never before heard of or seen the gorgeous Samantha Barks. But damn, girlfriend is pretty and working that dress! I absolutely loved this look. It was daring yet classic and fit her like a glove. I hope we get to see more of this girl's fashion!

Coming in at a very, very close second:

Are they the cutest? I think so. Not only are they ridiculously good looking but they seem genuinely happy and grateful to have enjoyed success. It seems to me they work hard at their careers and work hard at their marriage. I really, really hope these two beat the Hollywood marriage odds.

So tell me, who were your favorites at last night's big show?

Happenings around Here

 

  • Smash is back which I am uber excited about! However, I did not know there was so much hate surrounding this show until I read a few articles last night... I'm not sure how I missed that people thought it jumped the shark last year? 
  • I had my 2nd to last observation of the school year yesterday. We are halfway through the school with something like 100 days left.. insanity!
  • I have been all about Iowa Girl Eats recipes lately. She is a talented cook. We've had the Easy Chicken Lo-Mein, Chicken Enchilada Casserole, and are currently working our way through Lazy Girl's Ravioli Lasagna. All recipes get a 10 from my husband which never happens. He thinks she should write a cookbook and I agree.
  • You know what else I'm all about ? Parenthood. Damn, that show is good.
  •  Remember that half marathon I signed up for? Yeah, haven't hit the pavement yet. I'm relying on muscle memory to get me throught.
  • Prissy's Ponytails has already had 3 orders!! If you are in the market for some fun hair ties, visit my shop!
Happy Hump Day, Friends!
