Academy Award Sunday

Yesterday was the 84th Annual Academy Awards and I decided to cook dinner and choose my own best and worst dressed of the red carpet. 

I had decided that yesterday was going to be a 'pinterest' kind of dinner night. On the menu was brown sugar glazed bacon wrapped smokies & chicken enchiladas, all recipes can be found via my pinterest page!

Now onto what I thought were the best and worst dressed at the 2012 Academy Awards.

Best Dressed

My Favorite of the night, E Host Giuliana Rancic. She looked amazing. You can never go wrong with fitted, nude, and sparkly!

E Host, Maria Menounos looking beyond fabulous! Loving the green on her skin tone. 

George Cloney's girl friend, Stacy Keibler also looked stunning in her perfectly crafted gold dress. It hugged all the right places and I love the flower detail.

I also thought Michelle Williams dress looked very flattering on her, especially the coral color with her pale skin tone. 

Worst Dressed

Angelina Jolie's outfit really didn't do anything for me. Black is boring and she looked extremely skinny in the dress. 

  I also wasn't feeling Jennifer Lopez in her skin tight nude dress. I didn't like the pattern of the dress or the slits cut in the sleeves. 

Usually Sandra Bullock looks fabulous, but this dress wasn't doing it for me this year. I have seen people with mixed opinions on the outfit. The tree like detail is not needed.

Who were your best dressed and worst dressed of the Academy Awards this year? I know one thing, I'm so thankful not the be in the public eye where it's normal for people to judge how you look every day!

What a Wonderful Weekend

How lovely is this weather in February? 60-70 degrees with no wind feels amazing! It makes me beyond excited for Spring & Summer! 

Today I went tanning for the first time in ages. I know some people don't have the same opinions as me, but I love it and I love the way it makes me feel. It's nice to have a little color without having the fear of orange hands, streaky spots, or patches of color missing. Having a little natural color makes me feel better, healthier, and more confident. Back in the day when I played volleyball and was in spandex all the time, I was constantly tan. I have been slacking and haven't went since before Thanksgiving. Thankfully this weather is making me excited for Spring and excited for a little color. Back to the routine I go! 

What is everyone doing on this Saturday? For my family it is a day of relaxing, watching the border war between KU & Missouri (final game for them in the Big12 because Missouri is leaving), and getting together with some family to welcome home a solider from Africa. I couldn't be more thankful for good quality time with family. 

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Life Lately

I started this blog in January and it has been just a little over a month since I have written a post. Needless to say, life got busy and this blog got put on the back burner. I have had a hard time managing my time. I have realized that I need to find more time for myself and more time for the things I enjoy. 

With that being said - I have come to also realize that life is to short and goes by way to fast to not be anything but happy. I am going to focus on living life, being happy, and enjoying every moment of it. I know that God has a plan for me and that in His time everything will work out as it is suppose to. 

As short as 2012 has been, it has been so far a year of challenges and lessons. I'm learning new things each day. I know this year is far from over and I have many more experiences, challenges, and days ahead of me. I am so ready to tackle what ever is in store, and I know that God is by me every step of the way and that everything happens for a reason.  

My goal is to stay positive, stay happy, and have faith! I pray that God gives me the strength to do so. 

Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather. It is beyond amazing in Kansas - I love that there is Spring weather in February!
