Top Five LOL Cats of the Day

Fun Surprises

Since I work at a place that's full of Star Wars merchandise, I find it pretty easy to regularly surprise my husband with fun goodies and treats. A few weeks ago, Keith asked me to make an Amazon Wish List in case there were times he wanted to surprise me. 
These items arrived in the mail the other day (from my list!). This one is a heart shaped "Ring Soap" which claims to have a ring inside. No ring yet, but I'm working on finding it! :)
And a cool bell for my bike! Hooray! Thanks, babe!

Pinky's Fandance - Nicholas Guest

Keith worked on a film with Nicholas Guest and was beyond excited to see him at a recent gifting suite we attended.
I'm not quite sure that Nicholas realized I was getting in the picture, too. I feel like they could easily cut me out of that shot. Still, it was fun to meet him!

This. Is. Awesome.

The cast of The Little Rascals movie got together on the 20th anniversary of the film (!) to recreate the film's poster. 
I mean, come on. Did they nail it, or what? So. Freaking. Cool.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Saturday Edition

Hello and welcome to Saturday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
I'm not quite sure what I think of this dress. She kind of looks like a package.
Way to not draw any attention to yourself while walking through Times Square, T-Swizzle.
I love how stoked Mark is at this fan's sign. So cute!
Oh, no. Now she's wearing nightgowns out? I almost prefer the leggings. ALMOST.
I know it wasn't popular, but I kind of loved that she was bold enough to rock this look. It's definitely different!

Top Five LOL Animals of the Day

The Facts of Life 35th Anniversary Reunion

The other night we were super lucky to be able to attend the 35th anniversary reunion of The Facts of Life held at the Paley Center for Media.
What a treat to be able to see these beautiful ladies in person - especially considering how much I loved the show growing up.
To prepare for the reunion, we had these awesome shirts made - don't we look sharp?!?!
I loved being there with my sister and husband.
They started out by showing an episode from 1982 and then had a panel with the main cast members, Nancy McKeon, Lisa Whelchel, Mindy Cohn, and Charlotte Rae (all were there except for Kim Fields who didn't come due to some B.S. excuse about having a baby - which happened a LONG time ago. If she didn't want to come, fine, but she'd filmed a movie and promoted it already AFTER having the baby, so it made no sense to use that as her excuse). About halfway into the Q&A, Geri Jewell joined the group, as well.
Lisa tweeted out this picture of her and Nancy which made me so happy because their chemistry onstage was my favorite part of the Q&A. Well, that and the fact that "Mrs. Garrett" said, "Scared sh*tless!"
I took this with my iPhone and think it's such a great shot. I love that I got Mindy laughing heartily.
My collage of fame featuring the cast members I've met! Well, the main ones, that is. They also signed my lunchbox - now all I need is Kim and Charlotte Rae.
Lest we forget, I'd been able to meet a few others from the show at earlier times - Geri Jewell,
Cloris Leachman (who took over for Charlotte Rae for the last few seasons),
George Clooney (!),
and last, but certainly not least, MacKenzie Astin. Super fun night!

Pinky's Fandance - Nancy McKeon

Nancy McKeon was so great as Jo on The Facts of Life and in person was completely mesmerizing. Her eyes alone just draw you in!
Watching her onstage was so awesome - she was so grateful and kind. I loved everything she had to say. She truly seemed like the nicest one of the group. And her hair was so shiny!

Happy Birthday, Paulie!

Today is my brother Paulie's birthday! 
I hope your family is spoiling you rotten! Happy birthday, bro! Love you!

Celebrity Wrap Up - Friday Edition

Hello and welcome to Friday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
Even Pharrell pronounced this look D.O.A. - why are they trying to bring it back???
Somebody needs to put that dress nightgown in a corner (and burn it). 
When he was 21, had she even been born? Just wondering.
Apparently for Halloween, Miley is going as a pinata.
Who keeps inviting her to things? That's the real issue here. I'm used to her bizarre clothing by now.

Top Five LOL Dogs of the Day

The Fox and the Hound Display

Whenever we're at Disneyland, my husband is always looking for items from The Fox and the Hound, since he was the voice of the young fox, Tod, in the film.
As we were leaving the park the other day, we came upon this awesome window display.
Isn't it awesome?
Of course we had to get Keith to pose with it! So cool!

Pinky's Fandance - Lisa Whelchel

Growing up, there were very few shows that we loved more than the Facts of Life - we were obsessed! Although I loved all the girls equally, Lisa Whelchel's character, Blair, always seemed to steal the show. 
In person she's simply gorgeous and totally sweet. I can't believe she looks so awesome after all this time. I mean, come on, she looks exactly the same! Amazing.

Andrew's Blessing

On Sunday we headed down to my brother's house to see my youngest nephew, Andrew, be blessed during church. It was the first time my siblings had all been together in ten years!
