Currently, March 2017

March 21, 2017

Since deciding to move forward with a divorce, I've had to refocus my time and energy. Quality time with my kids comes first. I've been cleaning and purging like a mad woman because we'll probably move over the summer. I'm also focusing on the important friendships in my life. I have the best girlfriends in the world. Without them, I probably would have fallen apart. And now, baseball and softball season are in full swing. Most of my weekends between now and June will be spent at one ballpark or another. I wouldn't have it any other way though. I was born to be a sports mom.


Currently Loving


my oversized baseball tote + softball tumbler


Currently Listening To


I've been listening to a lot of 90's rap.
Biggie, Tupac, Snoop, Mase


Currently Enjoying


watching my kids excel in the sport they love


Currently Watching


I just binge watched all 7 seasons of Rules of Engagement and the first season of Santa Clarita Diet.
I didn't watch Rules when it originally aired. I loved it!
Santa Clarita Diet is different and so hilarious. Drew and Timothy are great in it.
Big Little Lies on HBO is so good, even better than the book. The cast is amazing.


Currently Anticipating


I'm going to see my Kentucky Wildcats play in the Sweet Sixteen on Friday.
Here.
In Memphis.
I'm dying, y'all.


Currently Needing


a tropical vacation
or at the very least, a road trip


Currently Wanting


an Apple watch
My birthday's coming up. Maybe I'll buy myself one.


2017 Oscars Fashion, Best Dressed

February 28, 2017

I hope you know that I put a lot of thought into my best dressed lists each year. I often go back and forth until the last minute. There's always one dress on the bubble. Sometimes I agree with the professional fashion critics. Sometimes I don't. That's what makes it so much fun!


MICHELLE WILLIAMS in Louis Vuitton
Michelle was on the bubble.
It's not the best dress in the world.
But I have to give her credit for always looking stunning without overdoing it.
Her beauty is classic and effortless.
When I see her, I want to be her.
And the dress is really pretty.


KARLIE KLOSS in Stella McCartney




It's simple.
It's white.
It has a cape.
And it works with a giant diamond choker.
What's not to love?


HAILEE STEINFELD in Ralph & Russo




I would never wear this, but that's not what matters.
She looks like an angel.
The dress is gorgeous.
It's iridescent.
Her hair and makeup are perfection.
And I don't even care that it's sheer!

EMMA STONE IN GIVENCHY






Emma nails it every time.
I mean, come on.
She looks like an Oscar.
She is probably the only fair-skinned actress who can pull off every color.
She takes Hollywood glamour to the next level.
A gold flapper dress as the very best?
I can't believe it either, but I'm not changing my mind.

2017 Oscars Fashion, La La Land


EMMA ROBERTS
The top looks like lingerie.
The bottom doesn't.
I don't get it.


HALLE BERRY
I like the dress.
I don't like her hair.
I feel like the two don't go together.


SCARLETT JOHANNSON
I don't love the dress, but pink is a great color for her.
And she rocks the hell out of short hair!


LESLIE MANN
I have nothing nice to say.


VIOLA DAVIS
She looks fab in red.
And it's a great dress.


RUTH NEGGA
It's not my style, but she looks great head-to-toe.


TARAJI P. HENSON
Velvet's not my thing, but she looks fabulous.


ALICIA VIKANDER
This whole look is underwhelming.
Also, this is how I wear my hair around the house.


BUSY PHILLIPS
I don't like this, but it seems to work on her.


BRIE LARSON
I don't hate it, but I don't think I like it either.
Something's off.


SALMA HAYEK
I don't like her hair.
And the dress just isn't quite right.


CHARLIZE THERON
I'm not loving the dress material or color.
She still looks flawless though.


KIRSTEN DUNST
It's very early nineties prom.
She makes it work though.


JANELLE MONAE
This is unique and suits her style aesthetic.

2017 Oscars Fashion, City of Stars


NAOMIE HARRIS
I like her a lot.
And I like that this dress is different.
I just don't think it's glam enough.


PRIYANKA CHOPRA
Gah, she's pretty!
The top half of the dress is just too odd-shaped for me.


DARBY STANCHFIELD
She looks good.
But I'm not wowed.


CHRISSY TEIGEN
I like it and I don't like it, all at the same time.
The bust is very sheer.
I don't need to see nips on the red carpet.


ISABELLE HUPPERT
The dress is very pretty, but looks a bit heavy on her frame.


AULI'I CRAVALHO
Eh, she's 16.
It works.


OLIVIA CULPO
I don't like the dress or her hair.


OCTAVIA SPENCER
I just don't think this is right for her.


AVA DUVERNAY
This is a lot of dress.
She makes it work.
I like it.


FELICITY JONES
The dress is very beautiful.
I just always get thrown off by this length.


NICOLE KIDMAN
I've been back and forth on this one.
Her makeup and earrings are on point.
I just can't decide on the color.
Either way, she looks amazing.


DAKOTA JOHNSON
She made a lot of best dressed lists.
I don't get it.
This is an ugly dress.
No?


JESSICA BIEL
I'm not saying it's terrible.
But I don't like it.
She could so so much better.
