Resolutions :: Music Festivals

My next resolution is slightly more creative then the last.  I really love music. It's one of those things that I need on a daily basis. It helps me get through bad and sad times and helps make happy times that much better. People say that smells are the biggest connection to memory and although that may be true nothing brings me back to the moment like a song.

I have been saying I want to go to all of these concerts and music fests and never end up doing it.  Something comes up, or I have no one that wants to go with me to the weird indie concert on a Tuesday night. Well, thats done.  On my resolution list {should I be calling this a bucket list for 2013? I think I'm missing the point of a resolution....} is going to 2 of the following three music festivals this year. Jazz Fest in New Orleans, Lollapalooza in Chicago, and Austin City Limits in... well duh Austin.

Jazz Fest is the only line up announced so I'm wishing to hear these songs at one or more of the festivals...

*Maroon 5 :: Sunday Morning {side note for judgers... I already know Maroon 5 is playing at Jazz Fest and again you can judge all you want but I will forever love them. I'm hopeful for some songs from "Songs About Jane"}

Golden Globes :: Best Dressed 2013

It's that time again. Award season is upon us!! Whether you watch the Golden Globes tonight or not you will likely be talking about it tomorrow.  I'm ready for it to start, Thai takeout ordered, candles lit, sweat pants on.  I think this year is going to be really contraversial when it comes to best dressed {let the drama begin...}.  Here are my picks... I have a feeling only about 35% of the people reading this will agree but oh well.

Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen
 This is by far my favorite. The neckline is killer and amazing. I love that the rest is simple so that the neckline really is center stage. Hair and makeup is perfect too. You may not agree with me but I think this is completely to die for!

Isla Fisher in Reem Acra
This one I was slightly on the fence with but to be perfectly honest I wasn't thrilled with many dresses.  Bored with most of them as I feel as if I've seen them 95 different times. I choose Isla because she look gorgeous and she choose something slightly different while still being completely classic.  I couldn't find a picture of her smiling which is unfortunate because she would be a million times prettier in these if she did!

Michelle Dockery in Alexander Vauthier
Ok so I'm going to be honest. I had to google who Michelle Dockery was.  She stars in Downtown Abbey which is a show my mom has been trying to get me and my sisters to watch since she started.  She is as obsessed with it as I am with Revenge and Pretty Little Liars.  Well this might be the final kicker for me to watch.  This dress is so unique and gorgeous I almost want it as my wedding dress {oh I need someone to propose to me first? Oh, I need a boyfriend for that? Who knew...}.  

Last but not least...

You're welcome...

Now go to sleep thinking about Bradley Cooper sleeping next to you. Sweet dreams.

Who were your favorites and least favorites?

Resolutions :: #4 & #5... Health

I think I've gotten the first ten days of 2013 off to a great start. Minus a little "trouble" with Resolution #1... Let's just say I am on wedding #2 in less then a year of bringing a girl instead of an actual date next weekend.  I have made a few steps toward the other 2. Yes I am aware that is basically nothing. Rosetta Stone is in my ownership (thanks to SB) and I have started searching for a class to join.

I actually had a wonderful NYE's which so far is all that matters.

Why yes that is a gold sequin bow headband in my hair. And yes I did steal borrow it from my 5 year old niece Anna.

Anyway, resolutions #4 and 5 are all about health.  I let working out completely fall to the waist-side in 2012.  I plan to pick back up starting next week on my fitness.  This means, yoga, and joining a sand volleyball team this spring/summer. (that is if one of the 2 people who invited me to join their teams were serious... otherwise, who wants to join my team?)

Resolution #5 is to eat healthier.  Not healthy all the time. That would be awful, boring, and make me a mean person. Healthier in day to day life though. Also, that juicer I thought was needed last Christmas, that will be put to way more use! My goal for 2013 is to do a 3 day juice cleanse at least once every two months.  Think I can do it? Well I guess we will find out.

I realize these are both generic and boring but the next few I promise will be more unique.
