Catching Up

I've been missing again.  No exciting reason for my absence, just busy with work and school starting up for the Spring semester.  I've been feeling under the weather this weekend, and that has continued into today, so I'm taking my downtime (sick time) to write about some random things...

The Super Bowl

(1) I really wanted Denver to win because 3 Red Raiders play on the team, but as you know, that didn't happen.  I have nothing against Seattle though, and of course I greatly enjoyed my time there, so kudos to them.

(2) Bruno Mars at half time was so fun.  

(3) My favorite commercial was...




(4) Lola was less impressed with the game, but she greatly enjoyed the Puppy Bowl.  She was glued to the television.

Movies

I have not made my way to the theater to see any movies I need to see before the Oscars, so that's a big fail.  I am trying to see all nominated movies that are coming out on DVD (or Apple TV) between now and then.

I watched Blue Jasmine last week, and I thought that Cate Blanchett was wonderful.  I can see why she has already won so many awards for her role as Jasmine.  

Dallas Buyers Club comes out tomorrow, and I can't wait to see the performances that Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey have won so many accolades for.  

If I do manage to make it to an actual theater, I'm not sure that I can make myself see any of the Oscar films on my list, when I'm really wanting to see The Monuments Men




Television

Patience not being a virtue that I possess, I purchased the Downton Abbey Season 4 DVD last week and finished watching this season.

It's so good!  I won't give you any spoilers, but will say that the season ends on happier notes than the previous season did. 

Fashion Wish List

I've long had a Longchamp Le Pliage Large Tote bag on my wish list, but I couldn't figure out what color I wanted.  While looking at Longchamp's website, I discovered the color "Lagoon".  

Lagoon made me swoon!

Yesterday was such a fun day to be in Seattle, the entire city was so excited.
I haven't made it to the theater in months, but I would love to catch some of the nominated movies too!
