What? Oh, that's just my kid's CD. It's not mine. Really.

One thing I enjoy about having kids is that it allows me to get away with listening to music that I really should consider lame. We all know how much I adore Taylor Swift, and I've gotten away with that under the guise of "my daughter just loves Taylor." The kids' apparent love of Top 40 and pop is also the reason I can sing along to nearly every song on the radio.

Of late, I am really loving Selena Gomez's new song, "Love You Like a Love Song." And, if I'm really telling the absolute truth, that isn't the first Selena Gomez song I've liked. I know quite a few of the Beiber-lover's tunes.

That song is really catchy, though. 

Speaking of celebrities, did you catch the Golden Globes last night?What a bore. Ricky Gervais was pretty funny, but when he wasn't onstage, I hardly watched. Admittedly, I was pretty disengaged due to some Disney World planning, but really. Boring. Highlight for me? Bradley Cooper, looking foxy as ever.

Rob Lowe looked pretty good, too, although unnaturally tan. I mean, really unnaturally tan. Kind of like when Davis was a baby and he had jaundice. Then again, he was on stage with Julianne Moore, who is not exactly the poster child for tropical tans.

Oh, and Seth Rogen's one-liner about Kate Beckinsale got a good laugh from me. 

As for the girls, I have such a girl crush on Emma Stone, so she scored big for me, although more on hair and makeup than the actual dress.

I love Reese, but I  can't decide how much I liked her messy waves. Also (and I swear this is not the insult it sounds like), I'm happy to see that she actually kind of looks her age. Not that she doesn't look great, but I think she looks like she's approaching mid-thirties without the aid of knives.

I don't know much about Paula Patton, but she's gorgeous, and wears yellow better than anyone I've ever seen:

My other 2 faves were not as classic, and maybe not as well-received by all, but I thought Sarah Michelle Gellar and Zooey Deschanel both looked great.Zooey is just so darned cute, all the time.

As for SMG, I generally hate tie-dye, but this one worked for her. In fact, I straight-up love it. 
That's it for me. Time to get the kiddos to bed, stat. Wine calls. 


  1. the Lowe/Davis/jaundice comment-HILARIOUS

  2. hmmm. Carter. I may have to re-evaluate our friendship based on the fact that you liked SMG's dress. Heinous! I thought it looked like a Ben and Jerry's t-shirt. I did love some Jessica Alba, Kate Winslet and Kate Beckinsale!

  3. That is hysterical that you and I blogged about this dress, and I said it was the ugliest dress on the planet. A lot of people did not like Zooey's dress, but I liked it. I think this photo of Sarah on your blog may be a better angle than what i have on the blog, but still don't love it.
