The Winners....

And the winner of the Steady Days book is.....(insert drum roll here).......

Once again, I look forward to reading more of your posts. Steady Days sounds great; I'd love to win it. Plus I'm a fast reader and I'll pass it on quickly. You don't want the book to stay in someone's house forever, do you?


I'll be sending you an email requesting your address so I can mail you the book. Everyone...go follow Alyssa so that you can try to win the book when she gives it away on her blog.


Did you watch The Oscars last night?  We had so much fun at our friend's party and I drank a little bit too much (I can't drink like I used to when I weighted 25 more pounds) and I've been sick all day!  I keep having moments of recollection from the party and I'm afraid that I behaved like a crazy person.  At one point I think I offered to breast feed my friends' baby.  I hope they weren't offended and invite us back.

I was shocked that Avatar didn't win Best Picture and so pleased that Sandra Bullock won Best Actress!  Her dress and her speech were amazing and I also loved Alec and Steve as the hosts.  What did you think?

Another question for you....overall, all year (2009) what was your favorite movie?  I have THREE...because I can't pick just one.

The Time Traveler's Wife
Julie and Julia
Sex and The City (I've seen it 3 times and bought the soundtrack)

  1. Sadly, I haven't seen any of them. These days seeing a new movie is a rarity. But I would choose the 1st one, b/c Eric Bana is in it and he's delicious.

  2. I thought the show was really good this year - I am so glad you had fun at the party, even if it takes a couple days to recover!

    I am not normally this "type" of movie person but I really liked both The Hurt Locker and District 9 this year - they are definitely near the top of my favorites list (which is short because I haven't seen too many). Julie and Julia was great too! :)

  3. Of that list I only saw Julie and Julia, but I think my favorite movie of last year was Avatar. It was just visually stunning.

  4. Let's just say that I think you would be so much fun to have drinks with! :) And I would also have to say that my favorite movie of 2009 was The Proposal! So good and so funny! And I am so happy that Sandra Bullock won, her speach made me cry. Hope you have a better (less hungover day) tomorrow. ;)

  7. This was the first time I watched it from beginning to end, which was a lot of fun. The end was crazy when they ran out of time and didn't even announce the 10 movies that were nominated for Best Picture.
    You offered to breastfeed their baby? Hilarious! I'd love to hear if they took it as a joke or were offended!

  8. BTW, I've been reminded a couple of times now why I can't drink too much when I have to work as a mom the next day. I hope you made it through OK!

  9. I haven't seen anything Oscar nominated that isn't from Pixar. So sad.

    I'm glad you had fun at your party, and I love that you're such a giver.
    ha!!!

  12. What I should say: Congrats to the book winner!!!

    What I am thinking: Crap! I didn't win- now I have to go buy that book!!!

    With a newborn, I did not watch any movies this year that were not kids movies- yes, my life was boring this year.

    I was also shocked that Avatar didn't win... I thought it was outstanding. It is on my faves list. I also loved District 9 and 2012.
