Happiness is the Little Things...

204. When people remember old promises!

Glitter.

"Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins."--Paris Hilton


Bedazzling is something I've been a fan of since I had my mother bedazzle my High School graduation gown in gold sequins. Glittering silverware seems pretty brilliant to me.  
Who wants to throw a glittery party!

178. Eating ice cream straight from the carton!

Messiah.

Today I'm in the mood to listen to something amazing.


Here is a part of Handel's Messiah performed by none other than my Mission President Robert E. Lee.

He's pretty amazing--but I might be a little biased!

186. Reading the inscriptions in old books.

Dudes.

The ladies weren't the only ones to bring it to the Globes last week.

Bradley Cooper
Sexiest man alive? I don't think so but he brought totally brought it.

Colin Firth
Perfection, absolute perfection!

Jeremy Irvine
The War Horse dude really cleaned up--I love the piping.

Peter Dinklage
It cannot be easy finding a tux for him but his tailor did an excellent job, he looks great!

Ewan McGregor
He's totally rocking the skinny lapels!

Matt LeBlanc
I loved the blue tuxedo!

Viggo Morstensen
Oh my goodness I literally gasped when I saw this picture!  What the freaking heck happened to Aragorn?!?  I have no words--expect for what the--I just don't understand this at all!

224. A bruise free banana!

Golden Globes.

I know you've been waiting to hear what I thought of the Golden Globes--well the fashion at least--so here I go.
 Ariel Winter in Dolce & Gabbana
I thought Winter looked adorable.  She's young enough to totally rock this dress and she does!  Her shoes on the other hand look a little big.

Emma Stone in Lanvin.
I love the colors in this dress. She looks gorgeous--and she's wearing a freaking eagle belt! Stone is pretty awesome in my book.

Kelly MacDonald in Lorena Sarbu
I loved this dress! The minimal makeup really works for MacDonald but I think a little more bling would have helped--this is the freaking Golden Globes! But she looks truly lovely.

Zooey Deschanel in Prada
I like the green and black.

Michelle Williams in Jason Wu
I thought she looked gorgeous! Very feminine and materialistic--simply lovely.  Though it did kind of remind me of the whole Gone with the Wind curtain dress--but in a good way.  Plus apparently headbands are still cool!

Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann
I'll be honest Swinton was by far the my favorite look of the night.  This baby blue dress is absolutely perfection on her and she's totally rocking that bouffant hair.  I love it and wish I could pull something this statuesque off--but I'm at least 8 inches to short for that.

"A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to take it off of you."--Francoise Sagan

89. Seeing old friends!

Rifleman.

Do remember this show? 


Lucas McCain (Chuck Connors) was a regular at our house and now he might becoming back! Apparently CBS is picking up a reboot of the Rifleman in the fall! It could be interesting. I've heard Josh Holloway name for McCain--I can see it.


Who do you think would be a good McCain?

Potato Rings--and Buttermilk Ranch!  I think the next time Mel comes over we're going to have to try these out!  I can literally feel my arteries closing--happily--at mere sight of these!

You're a mean one Mr. Grinch.

For Christmas this year we wanted to have a little Whobilation!


Our neighbors let us borrow their blow up Grinch and it was a huge hit! PB and PH loved it!!


For the party I string streamers and cotton balls across the room and we made some Cindy Lou hats. 

We played some Whoville games and ate a lot of food!  It was really fun

Birthday wishes need to be mentioned.


Today is Hayao Miyazaki's 71st birthday! 
If you don't know who it is then you really need to check out his work--it's amazing! He's the Walt Disney of Anime!

Another reason to celebrate today is the fact that I received this email:


yeah...I think it's time to stop cleaning my room and time to do something fun!

Happiness is the Little Things...

229. Driving on a newly paved road!

Streamers.


Doesn't this look amazing!


I did this for my Grinch party--It was all white streamers with cotton balls! I loved it!

New Years.

New Years Eve is such a fun holiday!


This is how I would like to spend New Years Eve--at least in my head.


This is the reality! But that's ok because I spent the night with...


these two beautiful people.  A very good movie, that to some beautiful accident ended at midnight!
