Yesterday it got a bit heavy around here when I announced I am leaving my job. All of a sudden we were talking about quitting jobs and big life changes and leaving behind loved places and experiences and people and twas all a bit heavy.
So today we're going light. Light and fun and frivolous and entertaining.
Did you know the Oscars are coming up?
THEY ARE! SURPRISE! SUNDAY! IN TWO DAYS!
I didn't really love the Oscars growing up. Didn't watch them, didn't read about them, didn't care about them.
Then two things happened to me.
THING #1: I married Hubs who is an aspiring actor, and thus I began watching movies like a fiend.
THING #2: I started reading lots of blogs and suddenly knew something (very little something) about fashion.
So bam, guess who's now excited for the Oscars? THIS GIRL!
At this point I feel like it would be appropriate to mention that I had a deep and ever abiding love for magazines. I purposely choose long grocery store lines so that I can devour all the latest celebrity gossip. I love flying because I treat myself to magazines and the flight hours just slip on by.
Now, put together magazines + Oscars and you've got yourself one excited girl.
You gotta be careful what magazines you choose, though. Not all of them have got the scoop you need. My preference is PEOPLE Magazine. It's got the latest on the celebrities, the best and worst dressed lists that I absolutely crave, and it even has its share of real writing. REAL WRITING! When Greg and I drove down to California last fall I read him stories out of PEOPLE magazine and showed him the pics all the way down. (Oh, look at McCauly Culkin! He's all grown up! There's a story here about a man who kept this woman locked away for 13 years, want to hear it?) Admit it, you think that's awesome.
That would be why I am looking forward to the PEOPLE Magazine 2013 Oscars Double Issue- coming out on March 1. A double issue?!? All about the Oscars?!? Shoot me, I've died and gone to heaven! Rest assured that I will be stuffing that magazine in a backpack, flying to Arizona, and I'm going to read the whole darn thing while laying in the sun. That, my friends, is how you forget about your problems.
Or maybe I'll just read it on my living room couch. Either way it's a win. I can't decide if I'm more excited for the Oscars or the PEOPLE Magazine!
What is going to be in the PEOPLE Magazine 2013 Oscars Double Issue? What Oscar events will they cover?
FOR EXAMPLE: Will there be adequate pictures of Angelina Jolie and her leg?
Will J.Lo have a convenient "wardrobe malfunction"?
And most importantly who is going to chant "They like me! They really like me!" if Sally Field doesn't win for best supporting actress?!? I sure hope PEOPLE has got this figured out!
Oh, and Target is giving away $20 just for kicks and giggles. So you buy yourself a PEOPLE magazine and snacks to go with it and remind yourself why life is awesome. Get entering! :)
