Zero Dark and the Dog Park

Just a few random notes to kick start this week. If you’re here from For Lauren and Lauren, welcome! I’m so happy you dropped by.

Zero Dark Thirty
This is the only film I have ever seen where I cried before a single thing was shown on the screen. The movie starts with a blank screen. And all you hear for the first 2-3 minutes are clips of 911 calls from 9/11. It’s heartbreaking to listen to and if you don’t have tears streaming down your face before the title appears on screen, you aren’t human. The movie goes on to be absolutely incredible. See it.

The Golden Globes
Am I the only one who thinks it’s super awkward when they start playing the music over the acceptance speeches? I get the worst second hand embarrassment for the winner. Just let them ramble! They might say something outrageous that we could talk about for a week or two. Here’s my take on the dresses. One winner. One loser.

Not so much

Archie’s grown up teeth are coming in so he’s been a bit of a monster lately. He lightly chews on a lot of things but he doesn’t destroy anything. It’s a bit strange actually. He also had his first dog park experience and I’m happy to say, he acted like a perfect gentleman.

And lastly, I actually did my hair today. 
And yes, the center of that picture wall does feature a replica Harry Potter wand. Some geekdom deserves to be displayed, loud and proud.
Happy Monday!

  • What a sweet looking puppy!

    • OOh a fellow Nadine. I very very rarely meet another. Thank you. He looks sweet but he isn’t always. We love him. Thanks for stopping by!

  • My heart beats so fast when they start cutting them off! And it gets even worse when they say “I know I’m being cut off, oh gosh”. I want to bury my face in my pillow.

    When ISN’T Jennifer Lawrence a win??!?!??!

    Yay for dog parks! One of the best things we ever did for McCoy. Start him out there young.

    • A lot of people didn’t like Jennifer Lawrences dress cause it made her boobs look weird. I didn’t see it on the red carpet, I saw it when she won and I thought she looked a-ma-zing. Honestly, my nerves could barely take the dog park. There were so many dogs and I was so worried about Archie the whole time. But I know it’s good for him so I’ll probably take him back.

  • Second hand embarrassment…..ahhah!!! So true. Loving your hair like that…so adorable!

    • Right? It’s totally second hand embarrassment. Thank you! I’m a good braider, I just never actually do my hair haha.

  • I feel like I was kind of worried the whole night that Jennifer Lawrence’s boobs were going to pop out of that bad boy. Nonetheless, she looked amazing.

    • I think it was the thin gold belt that did it for me. And I love that she is like mildly awkward but super honest. She’s just a win in my book.

  • Love your hair like that! So cute!

    • Thank you! I should take the time to do my hair more often. I felt so much more put together all day.

  • You look so cute!!

    • Thank you! Usually my hair is just down and blah but I actually put a little effort into it today. I felt more put together the whole day!

  • Visiting from lauren and lauren. I M an east coaster currently living in cali! I shoot with the 5100 as well and love it. Look coward to reading more!

    • Ah, we’re opposites! Do you like Cali? I liked it but I don’t miss it much. I feel like a lot of bloggers are cannon fans but I really like my nikon.

  • Your hair looks so cute!!

    • Thank you! It took a lot less time than I thought it would so maybe I’ll do my hair more often 🙂

  • I second, or third, or whatever. Your hair is cute like that. 🙂

    • Thank you! That’s very sweet.
