Oscar Fever!

Today’s agenda: Oscar red carpet recap and brief rundown of my fabulous weekend at home with my family.

Academy Awards – my favorite gowns of the evening. Okay I pretty  much liked majority of the gowns. I can’t pick a favorite. But if I absolutely had to, I think I would go with Anna Kendrick. I think he whole all together “look” is completely flawless and almost angelic looking. She looks FABULOUS! Way to be a newcomer and totally OWN the red carpet!

Ugh. Like I said – I really love ALL of these. It is impossible for me to pick a real favorite. Well done ladies (and gent).

My Trip Home

Traveling home to see my family was a BLAST. I had such an amazing time. It was short, but sweet. With many fun filled events.

I was able to spend some time with friends and family.

Had a yummy Mexican lunch with my parents. This consisted of a HUGE raw veggie platter and carnitas tacos. OMG real authentic Mexican food is SO good!

I also made some KILLER guacamole (sorry no picture), but it was basically adapted from Hungry Girl’s Holy Moly Guacamole. I used much more garlic, tomatoes and onions and handfuls of cilantro. Cilantro cannot do wrong. It was a big hit on Saturday night with my WHOLE family (mom, dad, sister, her boyfriend, grandparents, Eric, and Drea). I was quite pleased 🙂

I also managed to squeeze in a 10 mile run. I had 12 miles planned but had to compromise.

Today I am back in the swing of things at work. Hopefully this week will wind down a bit and I can get back into blogging.

Big News!!

Well I guess it’s not new news since I’ve already mentioned it, BUT I have only 8 more working days until I got to Europe for an entire week! I seriously am like a kid on Christmas morning preparing for this trip! I am thinking about setting up guests posts if anyone is interested!!! Please contact me if you feel compelled to be a guest blogger!

Back to work!!
