hello oscar

by Lori and Michelle on February 27, 2012

hello friends,

we are now back from our travels and we are slowly getting caught up on everything.

it feels good to be back and get back to the normal routine around here. though our routine does seem to be different a lot. guess that is life, right? always changing.

we have some recipes and videos coming your way here soon plus recap of our workouts lately.

we took the night off from work and watched the Oscars. anyone else do the same? we know there might be a lot of Oscar related blog posts out there but we wanted to share our thoughts on the show.

and we never really talk about TV or the Hollywood type stuff here on the blog, but since we are still playing catch up, we thought starting off the week with something fun and a little different would be fun.

thoughts on the Oscars.

overall we liked it. we thought Billy Crystal did a great job. we loved all the special video clips of the actors and actresses talking about what great movies mean to them.

the fashion at the Oscars we thought were pretty good. nothing too amazing but good. there were some people we thought stood out more than others.

here are just some of the dresses that stood out to us last night

Michelle Williams was beautiful

Cameron Diaz  looked simple yet amazing, want her arms!

again another simple yet beautiful look from Gwyneth Paltrow. what can we say we love white too.

Stacy Keibler and George Clooney both looked great. though can either ever go wrong?

adored Tina Fey’s look as well. thought she looked great.

there were some dresses we were not the biggest fans of like Jennifer Lopez (although she looked great) we did not really love her dress. and same with Angelina Jolie, sorry we are not fans of her and thought she did not look the best. a little pale and weak.

here are some more lists of best and worst dressed at the Oscars. we are not fashion experts, just think it is always fun to play “dress up” every once and awhile

moving on

a few favorite moments that we enjoyed from the Oscars

Octavia Spencer winning

Ben Stiller and Emma Stone presenters

Chris Rock presenting the Best Animated Film

enjoyed seeing actors and actresses favorite movies

what did you think of the Oscars? did you watch? what were your favorites and misses of this year? did anyone stand out to you, good or bad? would you ever want to walk down the red carpet?

and for those that did not watch the Oscars nor care what was your highlight of the weekend?

till next time,

I am not usually an Oscar watcher, but last night I got hooked.
I really liked Billy Crystal’s opening and thought everything progressed quite
nicely and was never too boring.
My fav. part is just seeing all the outfits though. I am always curious how much time they spend
the day of the Oscars getting ready.

funny a lot of people on my twitter feed were complaining about cameron’s arms. i think people have a hard time seeing a strong woman. there was too much body bashing for me.

Anna @ The Guiltless Life February 27, 2012 at 11:12 am

Haha I just posted my best/worst dressed list too!

I loved the bottom of Cameron’s dress too – I forgot to include her in my round-up. I didn’t like Stacy’s dress though, that gold and the way it bunched up on her hip just looked unflattering to me. Michelle looked fab and I LOVED Gwyneth’s all-white Tom Ford look.

Cara we agree, that would be fun to know.

Lori and Michelle February 27, 2012 at 1:59 pm

agree Bitt, it is sad that we will always have those complaints. hopefully one day that will all change.

Lori and Michelle February 27, 2012 at 2:00 pm

haha Melissa totally agree. what was up with that leg distraction LOL

Megan February 27, 2012 at 2:14 pm

I definitely teared up when Octavia Spencer won and the standing ovation! It gives me the chills even when I watch it for a second time.

Lauren February 27, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Loved those dresses too. Gweneth was so graceful in that dress.

Liz @ IHeartVegetables February 27, 2012 at 3:09 pm

I agree with all your picks! When Gwyneth came out, my jaw literally dropped to the floor. Fashion-wise, she was perfection from head to toe. Gah! <3

I love Michelle Williams’ look all the way around! Love her hair and her dress. I don’t have cable, but I love looking at the dresses from awards nights! So much fun!
