Top Five LOL Animals of the Day

Hanging with Ariel

As luck would have it, we stumbled upon a meet and greet with Ariel when we were at the park last weekend. Score!
Although by that time my bangs had pretty much killed themselves, it was still fun to see Ariel.
Here we were engaging in deep and meaningful conversation.
We were trying to show off my Ariel tattoo, but the sun kinda blocked it. Oh, well. Still a cool experience nonetheless.

Pinky's Fandance - Roma Downey

First of all, I realize this is a horrible picture of me, but let's not focus on that. Also, pretend you don't see purple hair dye streaking my neck and shoulders. It's all an illusion!
Roma Downey, however, looks beautiful, although initially I wasn't quite sure it was her. Does her hair seem a different color, or is it just me? Regardless, she was very nice.

Watch This: The Martian

During our travels, both Keith and I became obsessed with the book The Martian. It's so captivating and hard to put down. By the time the movie was released last week, we were more than ready to see the book come to life onscreen.
I'm happy to report that we were not disappointed in the slightest. It was great! I loved seeing everything I'd imagined as I read the book. They even put it into the order Keith predicted as we read it (he's a genius!). 
Matt Damon did an amazing job as Mark Watney, an astronaut stranded on Mars. He brought so many emotions into the role and kept you rooting for him the entire time.
As a bonus, they were passing these out at the theater we attended. Score! If you get a chance, check out this film. It's awesome!

Celebrity Wrap Up - Saturday Edition

Hello and welcome to Saturday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
Pretty sure that's just a lacy nightgown. NOT a dress.
How much do you want to bet that she's naked under there?
That suit is a world of NO.
Too much denim. Still rocking that horrible hair.
Egads. Put some clothes on!

Top Five LOL Dogs of the Day

Spenser's Blanket

Although I still have one more row to go, for the most part this blanket is practically finished. I mean, it looks pretty awesome in this picture, no?
I made this for my oldest nephew, Spenser, to take with him to college. I hope it keeps him nice and warm! :)

Pinky's Fandance - Charlie Day & Mary Elizabeth Ellis

I love Charlie Day and have always wanted to meet him. Double score that I was able to get a picture with both him and his lovely wife, Mary Elizabeth.
Bonus points for Mary being on The Grinder right now as Fred Savage's wife. Score!

OMG Cake

While searching for Duran Duran cake images the other day (don't ask), I came across this beautiful cake. 
Of course, the obvious question is: How was this not my cake?!?! WTF?!?!

Celebrity Wrap Up - Friday Edition

Hello and welcome to Friday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
She always has an expression on her face like she's up to no good.
Was she waitressing after this? What's with the apron?!?
Why is there so much bare skin there? It looks weird.
Does she know she's got a picnic tablecloth attached to her dress?
Nice nightgown.

Top Five Postsecrets of the Day

Duran Duran's Signing

Last night was the Duran Duran album signing at Amoeba records in Hollywood and it was incredible. Such a great time!
Huge thanks to my loving and supportive husband, Keith, for going to buy the album and picking me up a wristband to get into the event a few weeks back. They actually gave them out the day after we got back from one of our trips. The timing was perfect!
Because I'm a huge nerd, I made the band their own keychains and magnets with their new album cover on them. I think they turned out super cute!
I saw my girl Stacey in line - she's one of my new friends from Warner Music.
The band posing for pics before the signing (why oh why couldn't I be in the middle of that group?!!). 
I have to say, the signing was everything I could have hoped for and more. I mean, I've seen the band a million times in concert and have pictures with them all separately, but I've never just stood in front of them and been able to chat before. It was just so neat. It was the best. I wanted more time. I wanted to tell them everything in my head and thank them for everything, but I was also sure there probably wasn't anything I could tell them that they didn't already know.
This was my friend's picture with Nick. Yum.
How incredible does my album look all signed? LOVE it! Need to frame it immediately!

Pinky's Fandance Redux - Nick Rhodes

It's no secret that my love for Nick Rhodes is deep and true. I mean, I have his autograph tattooed on my leg, for goodness sake. Obviously, I'm a big fan. 
So it was a total surprise that I was able to get another picture with him yesterday before Duran Duran's record signing at Amoeba records. Squee!
Of course I had to create yet another collage of all our pics. Now I've got six Nicks! :) Wahoo!

Disney Day

On Sunday, Keith and I decided to head to the park to finally see the new magic in Peter Pan and to try out the Eggs Benedict at the Carnation Cafe (which are amazing, by the way. The service, however, left A LOT to be desired). 
When we first arrived, it was overcast, but we were hoping to avoid the rain...
Sadly, this was not to be.
Thankfully it didn't last long and before we knew it we were taking weird pictures with Stormtroopers.
We did get to see the awesome overlay at Haunted Mansion - it's so cool!
The end of Haunted Mansion.
Our fun photo op.
We stopped to see Tigger, Eeyore, and Pooh.
Big hugs all around!
Whee! We're with Tigger!
More hugs!
Fun with Pooh.
Is it wrong that I totally loved this hat?
The Force is strong with this one.
We even got to ride the Mark Twain boat, which was a first for me. So neat!
Keith waving from the front of the ship.
Our amazing seats at the front of the boat.
One of the incredible views. Such a great day!
