Lights! Camera!!!

Let me start by saying that I usually am completely BORED by the Oscars. YAWN! They always chose to nominate wack-a-doo movies that hardly anyone has seen, just to make an artistic statement of some sort. But I knew I would be watching last night. I had read that there would be a TWILIGHT presence at the show this year and I said "Set the Tivo and call the girls!"

So, that's what I did.


Lance went with the other husbands down to our neighbor's house, while his wife and all my girls (it's a grand total of 3 dear friends, 5 including Madelyn and myself) came here. So, we were free to giggle and act like idiots. Well, some of us did anyways, and for different reasons....


Lilian brought M&M cookies and I made a chocolate cake. Kara was supposed to bring chocolate bars but something happened and they never made it. hmm.... And Allison doesn't eat junk anymore. She claims it's the reason she's crabby all the time. I say it's the reason she looks so fabulous!

Hugh Jackman started out the event with a hilarious musical number that had Lilian all flustered. ( Me too, okay? ) Well, here, if you don't believe me...


...and who wouldn't be? He's freakin' Wolverine!


But, by far the house got pretty dang loud when a certain pale, messy haired Brit walked on stage. ( breathe!) Allison got busy taking snapshots as we turned out all the lights and rewound the Tivo to watch it over a few times. This is what she captured:


Please note that some of us (Kara) look giddier than others.... and the remote is in my lap hahaha! Need to be ready!

I mean seriously, people......


Okay, enough of that. Need to concentrate.....

The best part of the night was just hanging with the best ladies EVER!!! And my sweet daughters of course! We passed the camera around and I have dozens of odd pictures that I did not take. Various ear lobes, noses and foreheads. Lovely! I won't post those, Ali and Kara. But I will post these, because they make me happy. Hope they make you happy too.


Please, don't ask about the one below.


Can't wait 'till next year!

As far as the last picture goes... I wonder if it has something to do with CHOCOLATE and the reason why she didn't bring her chocolate dessert!!!!

I would like to make the record clear that I was NOT one of the ones salivating and licking the screen when a certain Brit was on.

As far as my obsession goes with Mr. Jackman.... as you can see I keep most of my flutterings on the inside... ;-)

As for this POST of the WORLD ... I LOOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!! And yes I have learned to EMBRACE my craziness and the fact that I was overwhelmed with glee with the Oscars (of which I usually YAWN, too!)

HOWEVER... I am completely mortified that you failed to mention the ENTRACE of my soulful existence of hotness... the one that included heels, artistic apparel and eyes covers of love. Don't worry ... I'll wear it again in LA. :)

We'll have to make this an annual appearance (as will HE) ... 5.5 hours will not deter us in ANY way, fashion or form.

LOVE to my loves!

Yes! Most definitely an annual occasion!

And I also failed to mention, Kara, that you took a teensy bite out of EVERY cookie Lilian brought. Didn't stop me from eating THREE!!!!

Lilian said...

It's okay if she took a bite out of each one of the cookies I brought. She was probably making sure it was safe for everyone else to eat. However, I already licked them all before I brought them (I wanted to make sure they were safe too!)

Brandy said...

Oh! and Lilian.... about the last comment you made about Mr. Jackman.....

that's what she said.

*he he he he*

Looks like so much fun! What a great idea! We tivoed it and then started watching at 10pm..we were able to fast forward through things and it only took us about 1 hour and 20 minutes to watch all of it! Love Tivo! Loved Wolverine too!

Allison said...

ANUALLY? I'm sure we could think of a reason to do this monthly! Weekly? It was a hoot and a holler. Thanks for not POSTING those disterbing images... what happens at Brandy's STAYS at Brandy's.

Love you girls!

Brandy, I think I will be coming up to SLC to the Twilight release party. Me, my nieces, my friends are all going for an adventure! I wonder which star will be in SLC! Could it be Rob? Kristen? Taylor? Whoever it is, this should be fun, eh?

You gals are adorable with the Oscar watching.

BTW, I found your blog from RobObssesed...
