Just Say No

To this outfit mainly the jacket. Never say yes to this again. Ohh it looks so bad and the beanie all jaunty like on your head. I love you but you are looking rather girl like lately. Pull it together Biebs. The holidays are just around the corner and I need a good picture of you to photoshop into my holiday card.

The sighting

This is my first foray into the blog world, but since I am a devoted follower of Anchors and Argyle, I jumped at the chance. Also, this blog is about Ryan Gosling-clearly not hard to write about…

As everyone is well aware by now, Ryan Gosling is not the ‘Sexiest Man Alive.’ Well, at least not to People Magazine. I’ve lost faith in them. I know there is a long list of people who agree with me on this. In fact, some have even taken to protesting.

This is all an introduction to my story of seeing Ryan himself IN THE FLESH! We are on a first name basis after the sighting. My best friend, Christine, got married in Austin the same weekend as Fun Fun Fun fest. Little did we know that Ryan Gosling (oh yea, and Roony Mara) were filming there for their upcoming movie. So, imagine our surprise when he walked in to Hangar Lounge after the Rehearsal Dinner. My heart stopped. Not only am I obsessed with reading US Weekly and following the lives of celebrities, but Ryan Gosling is gorgeous! Most of the girls ran and chased him upstairs. On the way up the stairs, he passed within an inch of me. Unfortunately, he couldn’t take pictures because they were filming. But, he kindly mentioned he would have. So not only is he more gorgeous and taller in person, but he’s kind too. So girls, rest assured that your crushes on Ryan are legit. And if I can’t have him, I hope Rachel McAdams gets him back someday.

Ryan G

My friend HB share this lovely link with me. Ryan Gosling is a hottie, no question about it. I want to rub my fingers thru his hair and across his abs..too much? I just saw Crazy Stupid Love last weekend and was swooning the whole time. His accent the hair, he took his shirt off, the list goes on and on. Not to mention he was going after my 2011 lady crush, Emma Stone. I never would have imagined he would have come this far from his Mickey Mouse Club days. He is wayyyyy cuter than Justin Timberlake. Oh and he is Canadian. I think I like this Canadian better than the Biebs. Lo siento Justin!

Oh Sandra why did you ever break up with him? So much of a better choice than Jesse James. And Rachel McAdams, same question. They would have made a baby with beautiful hair.

According to picture 62, he drinks Diet Snapple. I also love Diet Snapple, so I am lead to believe we are a match made in heaven. My friend A told me she saw him when he was in town a few weeks ago. I have asked her to write a guest blog about it. Stay tuned for that. In the mean time just keep googling images about him and staring at him.

Letting you in on a secret

Readers, I am about to let you in on a secret I have discovered. It's pretty amazing and I hope you are sitting down for this.

Aquaphor is one of the greatest inventions ever. The weather has been all over the place here in the ATX. I am talking cold front in the 40's then back in the 80's craziness. Well it has been messing with my lips big time. I had some supposedly hydrating lip stick or something at work. It sucked. I found myself longing for my giant tub of Aquaphor that was sitting at home. I solved this problem that day after work and bought myself some of the tubs of it and will never be sans Aquaphor again. I will also be getting rid of all of the less than stellar chapsticks I have around. That's all, go out and buy yourself some Aquaphor. You won't regret it. When my skin is especially dry I like to put it on dry spots on my face or all the way around my lips before I go to sleep. Now there is a perk of being single. No one to judge my greasy Aquaphor covered face. I know there is a man out there that will love that look one day!

New Hobby

I have a new hobby. It's called entering contests to win things on blogs. It's simple you see. Lot's of the blogs I read seem to do giveaways, thus I am going to try to win myself something. I figure the more I enter, the better my chances of winning are. I will let you know when I actually win something, though I think you will probably hear me shrieking with delight and won't even need to read a blog. Anyone ever won anything?

WTF World

Coach Beiste

Y'all been watching Glee? I got caught up the other day and I had a post all ready to go a while back on this very topic but I am so glad I waited. I am loving Coach Beiste this season. Her involvement with the musical and then last night, she got a romantic interest and I was even more excited. She brings so new blood into the series. I mean she was around before but now she is playing a bigger role and I couldn't be happier. More Coach Beiste!!

Expensive Taste

Ugh, why do I have such expensive taste?I love this Kendra Scott necklace
but at close to $300 it sadly won't be mine. I also adore these earrings. I mean the drops are removable so really it's 2 earrings for the price of one.
At $330 they are also a bit out of my range. I found them by going thru another blog to the the main page and I have no idea what Taigan is but they had lots of cute jewelry that I need feel I must have.

Door Mats

I have never had a door mat. For the most part I find them to be rather dull and just not very useful. While snooping around the blog world I saw this image and thought man that is cool. I wonder what it is. Y'all, it's a door mat.

This is a door mat I can get behind. It comes in a ton of colors and I think it's the nautical looking rope on it that make me love it so much. Sure at $249 it ain't cheap but I feel like it would be well worth the investment. One day I will have this door mat. I hope by the time I save up my pennies they will still be selling them.

Vampire Diaries

While I lounged off my Saturday of bad decisions on Sunday I got caught up on Vampire Dairies.
I know you are thinking, really Taylor, another CW show. Yes, my 28 year old self is helping keep that channel on the air single handily. I had this whole season taped thus far and hadn't watched any episodes yet. I love a good marathon day of a series and watched about 3 or 4 episodes. Something I was struck by was that thus far in the season they haven't been in school yet. I thought they were all in high school so I am a bit confused as to why no one is in school and why this doesn't seem to be an issue. Just something I was wondering. I don't think it's the summer but I could be wrong. I will provide an update if they go back to school and I just missed the part where this was summer vacation.

Also, if you don't watch this show, you should. So guiltily good.

Oh and Elena aka Nina Dobrev, I have not forgotten when you were on Degrassi.
Some of your best work!

Feeling like a grownup

Does anyone else feel like a grown up when they pay their bills? I know this sounds silly since at this point I am knocking on 30's door but there is something that makes me feel very old and responsible when I pay my bills. I just wish I didn't feel so broke afterwards.

Where in the World is....Jennifer Lopez?

I was catching up on my celeb gossip this AM and ran across an article on about Jennifer Lopez playing Carmen Sandiego. Just because Jlo wears big hats like Carmen did doesn't mean she is the best choice. I grew up loving Carmen Sandiego and various other PBS programs. Ghostwriter anyone?? I digress. I just don't see Jlo as Ms. Sandiego. In the article they mention Sandra Bullock was in talks to play her in the early 90's and I am not sure I see that either. Then I googled Carmen Sandiego images and found this one of Sandra and was convinced she was the right choice. Produce away on the movie Jlo, just please don't star in it.

Top Chef Texas

Top Chef came to Texas and my boy Tommy C. was on fire. Kicking off a 22 year old d-bag within the first 15 mins of the show who couldn't butcher meat. More Tommy C. Please! I am sure he would love to know I call him Tommy C too. I think this season is going to prove to be amazing. I am sure part of it is because being from Texas it will be exciting to see where all they go. Plus, Tommy C. in his Texas gear, sign me up!

I have always enjoyed birthdays. Some say I really just
enjoy mine but I like celebrating all of my friends birthdays and am always sad when I make a new friend and
they tell me they aren't really a birthday person. I don't even know how to believe that. My birthday is on New Year's Eve
so everyone all over the world spends the day celebrating my birth. The universe is such a
kind place. Every year I spent a decent amount of time looking
for the perfect dress. It's always a dress though I think one year I wore a t-shirt I made.
I have started looking for my dress this year and think I have come across a winner. Mind you I have not tried this on in person so not sure how the
color will be on me but I am pretty pumped up about it.
What do you think? Pretty perfect right?

Happy Justin Bieber Holiday Album Release Day

Yes, I was hooked on the latest holiday jam Mistletoe and will be purchasing his new holiday album. It will surely be on repeat this holiday season like my Glee Christmas last year. That was the best surprise gift from the BFF! Michael Buble also has a holiday album coming on that I am considering.
