Oscar Night

And the winner goes to...
Let's just say that tonight is one of my very favorites of the year. Almost like the Super Bowl to you sport fans. It is Oscar Night! Where all the stars come out in the "Sunday Best" gather and give out awards. You hear alot during the night that it is a very long night,they are hungry and don't really enjoy the whole pomp and circumstance of the whole day! I say bull----! I would love to experience just one day like that. Where when you walk in hundreds are yelling your name and you know that you look damn good! You get interviewed and told how fabulous you look and then go inside and see old and new friends! THEN you get to go to fabulous parties and drink yummy champagne and delectable food! Sounds like a great day! I would love to experience that just once!

Anyhoo, i watch from my couch and take in every detail of every dress, makeup, hairdos, tuxes, speeches and yes i usually cry at least at one. so far tonight not yet. I don't even like going to oscar parties because i don't want to talk during the show. yes i am somewhat weird that way. Then the next day i watch every morning news show to see if they agree with me. Then i watch the Fashion Police on the E channel and discuss with them like i was seating right next to them on the show! I should probably look into why I am so into one night that really has no connection to my life whatsoever. I just like it alot!!!'
This weekend was going to be a brutal weekend with all of our baseball and color guard activities but since it rained we lucked out. Only a color guard competition. Mission's A guard came in second and their Open guard came in first. Makenna is on the A guard and if I do say so myself she kicked butt! Not one drop of a flag, sabre of rifle!! Since this is our first year we really had no idea what to expect. The competitions are held in high school basket ball gyms and the groups are much smaller. So you really know when one makes a wrong move or drops something. Let alone it makes a very loud noise just in case you missed the drop. We are really proud of her. It has taken alot of dedication this year. Lots of time away from home.
Here are some pictures of last night. I love their costumes. The first picture is how they start out. Very interesting!

this is Jaxon and what he did during most of the competition. just thrilled to be there!
So excited on the work front. We actually are going to have what we are releasing for CHA-s in the warehouse soon. Bummer i can's show you. I can;t even make layouts or projects with it this early. Still working on some modern milan and coastal culture projects. Will show you those later in the week.
Heads up on a submission call. My dear friend Stephanie and her magazine what used to be called "Homegrown Hospitality" now called "Home to Heart" is asking for submissions for the August issue. If you are interested go here. You will find all the info you need on Stephanie's blog.
Have a fun Sunday night. If you want to talk about the Academy Awards email me and we can talk...for hours!
just cried for the gal who wrote Juno. Diablo Cody. She was a stripper at one time and then wrote this screenplay and here she is at that Academy Awards up on the stage. Like I said just once I would love to experience that! It just occured to me that my moment i might of had happen today at our end of the season party for basketball. I was give an award for Team Mom. it was an actual trophy! I missed my moment...when I could have given a heart stopping,poignant speech with all 25 moms,dad, kids watching me! Oh how funny that would have been. Maybe something like, "they like me they really like me!" I am laughing out loud right now just of the thought!
okay i swear i won't be back until tomorrow!

Congratulations team Mom!! Sounds like a great weekend. I watched it all too.......loved Heidi's dress and Penelope Cruz, oh and Jennifer Gartner(sp?).......I missed all the morning talk, watching Elmo and Curious George. I hadn't seen any of the movies though but I still always seem to be able to guess who will win. I thought John Stewart did a great job. He cracks me up. Have a good day.
