Hi lovely friends, I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
This weekend was one of the best I've had in a long time. I got to head home to El Paso for the weekend and see my family and best friends. I got to miss work on Friday, which is always nice! Gotta love 3 day weekends. And my all time favorite day of the year happened, OSCAR NIGHT!
Here a fun little break down for you.
I traveled home to El Paso to throw my best friend in the entire world a baby shower. She will be welcoming her very first sweet baby into the world at the end of March and I am so thrilled that I got to throw her a baby shower. Jenny and I threw it together and it came out absolutely perfect if I do say so myself.
I plan to dedicate a whole post to the shower later this week so I'm not going to go into any details but I will show you this picture:
Yeah.....it was perfect. I also got to see my parents this weekend which was great as usual. I'll be seeing them again in two weekend when they come to Houston for Spring break.
Sunday night was Oscar night! My favorite time of the year. I was just getting back into Houston when the show actually started, so I missed the first hour and a half. Which was highly disappointing but thank god for DVR because I was able to catch up with the live version!
Here were a few of my favorite moments:
-Red Carpet looks. Since I missed the Red Carpet I had google all the gowns and here were some of my favorites!
As you can see there is a theme going on here. I liked all the rose/neutral colored dresses, save for Reece Witherspoon and Dakota Johnson. Jennifer Aniston's was probably my favorite! (If you want to check out my dream Oscar Red Carpet look, click here, I did a whole post about it!)
-I loved that the awards were so spread out this year. There was a different winner for most of the categories and I found that very refreshing since most years the same movie wins multiple categories.
-Lady Gaga's tribute to The Sound of Music. Ummmmm.....hello! This was amazing. I've never been a hug Lady Gaga fan but oh my goodness. This was fantastic. Loved every minute of it and watched it several times before I went to bed on my phone.
-The Oscar's set. I loved the way the stage was set for this years Oscars. I thought it was absolutely gorgeous. I love the way deep red and gold look when paired together.
-Neil Patrick Harris. Loved the intro this year. Thought it was very well done. His jokes were chuckle worthy and ok, but I'm sorry, nothing will EVER top Ellen's epic selfie from last year. Nothing.
-I learned about "seat-fillers". Totally want to fill that job next year. Apparently they get paid $125 an hour to fill the seat of the actors/actresses who go up to accept and award or present an award or just take part in the show. Sign me up.
-Boyhood didn't win anything except for Best Supporting Actress. Sorry but I thought that was a super boring movie that had a super boring plot. I get that it was different because it used the same actors for 12 years. But I was fighting to say awake and was glad I didn't pay 9 bucks to see it in theaters. And thus, is why I was glad it didn't win anything major!
Overall I was very pleased with the show. I know I've mentioned this about a hundred times but I just adore the Oscars. The gowns, the hosts, the celebrities and the celebration of film. I totally should have gone into the movie industry.
Well hope your weekend was a great! Linking up once again with these two lovelies! :)
