Happy Monday! The weekend is gone. I woke up STILL under the weather. A lingering cold + a touch of the bottle flu. But I have these beautiful tulips on my kitchen table that made me smile this morning.
I have officially started my 20-day’s of sugar-free. So far so good….but, it’s still the morning. Of the first day…lol. I hear day #3 is going to be the hardest. My homie Sarah P is doing the sugar-free diet with me. I’ll keep you posted how it goes.
Ok, so about this weekend…..
My Mom and I went to the Tower Theatre to see Jackie. Although I’ve read the awful reviews, I really wanted to see this movie.
Jackie is a portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Kennedy. Jackie places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a portrait of the First Lady as she fights to establish her husband’s legacy and the world of “Camelot” that she created and loved so well.
I loved the reenactments of historical scenes, Jackie’s clothing and the iconic film clips. Natalie Portman made a complete transformation. She was great, but I was disappointed that they portrayed Jackie to be so unconfident, dark and distant.
I cant say I hated the movie. It just wasn’t what I was expecting.
I did some meal prep in my new Calphalon cookware set (thanks for the birthday gift Mom + Dad). Life changing. I no longer have to spray pam in my pan to cook my egg. It just slides right out. It’s fucking mindblowing. Below I’m simmering a cauliflower soup that I will be sharing this week. It’s Kaia + sugar-free too!!
I cleaned, chopped and roasted veggies. Hard boiled eggs. Packed lunches. I think I’m ready?!?!
Bailey picked out her 4-H pig. Say hello to Barbie Q. Bay says she looking forward to getting her fat, brushing her and taking her for walks ♥
So much fun to be had from now till May 7th.
Saturday night some of my favorites treated me to such a fun night. Wine, lots of wine. Yummy good. Gifts galore.
We laughed a little too…..
I bet you didn’t know that two of the finest rappers reside in Woodland, CA! Fact! I hope you saw the snapchat video!!
Nikki, you’re the best. I thought we were going out for drinks….not a birthday party. Thank you for planning and getting a great group together. And thank you, Erica + Alex + Sarah P + Korine, from the bottom of my heart for such a fun night. I couldn’t ask for better girlfriends. I’m on day 2 and I’m still not back to 100% yet. Sign of a good time.
Sunday consisted of Steve’s pizza + Golden Globes……
Golden Globes were great, as always. Jimmy Fallon’s opening was perfect. From the choreographed red carpet limousine traffic dance to the Stranger Things rap to the piano. Well done! Ryan Gosling gushing over “my lady!” Swoon! What exactly is Miss Golden Globes anyway? La La Land swept the show. It broke the record for the most Golden Globes won by a movie. Which was no surprise.
But what my girlfriends I are were really texting about all night….the gowns. Personally, I wasn’t all that impressed. They were a little boring. I asked the girls for their #1 best/worst dressed. Here’s what they had to say……
My pick – Viola Davis
Alex’s pick – Emma Stone
Sara’s pick – Giuliana Rancic
Robin’s pick – Kristen Bell
My pick – SJP.
Alex’s pick – Nicole Kidman
Robin’s pick – Michelle Williams
MOST DRUNK – Goldie Hawn
Meryl Streep’s speech! Jessie + I agreed #imwithher
Who were your top best/worst dressed?
