Happy Friday!

Happy Friday Friends! What's on your line up this weekend? We're taking the little one snowshoeing with friends (Translation: hubby will carry her in a backpack up the mountain and partway up the hills, I'll play it cool, trying to cover up the huffing and puffing, and secretly wishing that I too was being carried in said backpack.) 

Are you going to watch the golden globes on Sunday? I'm looking forward to it. I absolutely love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (have you seen Parks and Recreation? Brilliant.) I can't wait to see the ladies rock it. Here's their watch-along drinking game they devised. 
This week the nominees for the Academy Awards came out. Have you seen any of the Best Picture contenders? Check out this preview of Beasts of the Southern Wild, nine year old Quvenzhane Wallis is up for best actress. Doesn't she look spell-binding? Nine. Incredible. At nine I was far too busy watching Three's Company episodes and spinning my Rock '81 K-tel album to pursue a career in acting, thank you very much. 
Do you like the movie theatre experience? Nowadays with people having such sophisticated televisions, with state of the art surround sound systems, more people seem to prefer staying in and skipping the crowd noise. Personally, I haven't been to a movie in over a year (due to child/not to any kind of sophisticated home theatre set up) and am excited to finally see a movie this weekend in an actual theatre. The previews, a room full of laughter, the sticky floors - ah bliss. We're thinking of starting the list with Silver Linings Playbook because, as you know, if you have to start the list anywhere, you should always start with Bradley Cooper. 
Happy Weekend Friends! xo
