Top Five LOL Cats of the Day

Fun Day

My friend Duggan posted this picture of us at the John Varvatos Stuart House charity event this past weekend. Love it!
Plus, that headband is to die for (Duggan let me borrow it for the event). Miss it already! :)

Pinky's Fandance - Joyce DeWitt

One of the people I was most excited about meeting at the Hollywood Show was Joyce DeWitt from Three's Company. I loved that show!
Who knew she'd look EXACTLY the same?!? Holy cow, she looks amazing. Plus, she's super cool!
Of course I had to go home and make a little collage. Apologies to my handsome hubby who had to be cut out in order for everything to fit. So sorry. Otherwise, I'm excited by the collection. I purposely didn't get a picture with Jenilee Harrison (who played Cindy Snow) because she's had so much work done on her face that she's simply unrecognizable. Ugh. Pass.

Throwback Pics

Yesterday I received an amazing early birthday gift from my dear friend Ginny which contained a photo album filled with pictures from our long ago days at BYU.
What a fun surprise! And it's even more perfect considering I recently discovered that my photo albums were destroyed by accident and I'm now missing all the pictures. So stoked!
A few of these I've never even seen before - so fun!
Don't be jealous of my fancy winter coat.
The crew! Why was I wearing a shorts jumper?
My trusty bear, Pinky.
That's a lot of floral in one shot! Thanks, Ginster! Love you!

Celebrity Wrap Up - Saturday Edition

Hello and welcome to Saturday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
Obviously this was someone's failed Home Ec project.
Did this dress used to be a napkin? Table linen?
When I'm in my seventies, I'd like to look like this, please. :)
Holy world of NO, Zosia. Yikes.
This might be the best Tyra has ever looked. That outfit is fierce.

Top Five LOL Animals of the Day

Photo Organization Is Desperately Needed

In what now feels like an immediate need, I desperately need to figure out a way to organize my celebrity photo ops. Now that my collection is growing into the thousands (!?), it seems my memory is unable to grasp who I have and haven't met. GAH.
Case in point: Remember how I just got this picture last week? Yeah, so Katie Lowes was on my "bucket list"....meaning, I'll go out of my way to meet her when she's out. In the past few weeks I've tried on several occasions to meet her, finally being successful last week.
So, last night I was going through my collection and what do I find from TWO YEARS ago?!!? Katie Lowes. Before Scandal was on. Before I knew who she was. Yes, that's right: I ALREADY HAD HER!! GAH. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Pinky's Fandance - Robert Buckley

Does Robert Buckley ever age? He looks exactly like he did when he was on Lipstick Jungle which feels like a million years ago. And then he was on One Tree Hill and now iZombie. He just gets better looking with time!
I was so excited to see him at an event this past weekend - plus, he was super nice! Score!


Just so you know, this isn't some "poor me" post. I'm aware that I'm incredibly blessed and lucky in my life. I've got a wonderful husband, great family, and friends all over the world. 
However, having friends all over the world doesn't necessarily translate into a multitude of friends nearby. And, sadly, lately I've been feeling like the friends I've made here aren't really good friends after all. And that breaks my heart.
Of course, my first reaction is to blame myself - I'm too trusting, too nice, too helpful. I like to think that I treat other people (at least the ones close to me) like I'd like to be treated. But, I don't really feel like I'm getting the same thing in return. I'm feeling neglected. Taken for granted. Used. Unappreciated. Walked on. Ignored. Left out. Alone.
Granted, I've got great friends far away that I can talk to and, as I mentioned, I've got the best husband around. But, even he isn't sure what to say when I talk to him about how I'm feeling about these friends. He says I should tell them what I'm telling him (but that's not going to work either).
Because, really, I don't think I want friends like these. I want people who are excited to see me, who reach out and want to do things, not ones that just take and take and take with nothing in return. Again, I blame myself. I shouldn't offer anything to anyone, especially without asking for what I need back. But even when I ask, that doesn't work either, so what's the point?
I guess I just won't have any friends. Not good ones, anyway. I mean, there are a few that don't fall into this category and I appreciate them more than anything. I just wish I didn't feel so alone. Rant over. Moving on.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Friday Edition

Hello and welcome to Friday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
I finally found something to hate more than sheer clothing - mullet skirts! Whoever thought this up was a total moron.
Speaking of morons, did she realize something took a bite out of her dress?
Holy housedress, Batman. between the horrible hair and the awful dress, I can't decide what's worse.
Why are they relevant? And was the headband really necessary? I feel like he's effeminate enough.
Walk away from the self-tanner, Jude. You're looking a bit orange.

Top Five LOL Dogs of the Day

Happy Engagiversary

Two years ago, this amazing man asked me to be his wife. Actually, his exact words were, "You know I'm going to marry you, right?" 
Meeting and falling in love with Keith happened so quickly, but it never felt like anything other than meant to be. So happy to be on this crazy journey through life with him. Love you, babe!

Pinky's Fandance - Teri Garr

Teri Garr is a total sweetheart. She was kind enough to pose for a few photos at her car as she was leaving the show the other day after not feeling well.
I'd feel bad about the car shot, except I'd been waiting at her booth for her to come back for quite awhile. Was thrilled to meet her. I love the cute thing she does with her hand on her chin.

All the Colors

My friend Duggan took this shot of me the other day to illustrate all my colors in the sunlight along with the awesome headband he loaned me for the event. 
Aside from my wonky eye (what is going on there?), I guess it's kinda cute. I do enjoy all the colors.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Thursday Edition

Hello and welcome to Thursday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
All I can see are earrings.
Put the self-tanner down. Back away from the self-tanner.
New couple alert?
Is she wearing a doily?
Pro tip: When wearing a wild shirt, it's best not to wear equally distracting pants.
