Monday blog love

Happy Monday to everyone!

Did you enjoy watching the Academy Awards last night? I did! I loved Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, I thought they were a lot of fun. Wasn't Sandra Bullock's gown divine?! So gorgeous! She wasn't my pick for best actress but I love her real life persona and find her charming. My husband wanted "Avatar" to win best picture but I personally think it has some flaws compared to "The Hurt Locker", which was pitch perfect.

I've included several links to book blogs that I stumbled upon last week, in my blog love today. We're all about the books over here and excitement is building as we near our absolute favorite event of the year, The Festival of Books, at UCLA in April! Cannot wait, so much fun!

  1. Hello Sally, recalling the sentiment of the Alka Seltzer commercial guy "I can't believe I watched the whole thing". But I did, and I would want Steve and Alec to host it again. They were sharp, funny, and not near as mean as other hosts have been in the "name" of laughs. I acutally liked the dancing this the soundtracks (Hans Zimmer's Sherlock Holmes soundtrack was a big plus to the movie, I thought, and should have won) it was appropriate and without the usual cheese factor. Fashions...ehh. But my poor husband had to sit through it with me shouting "DING" for each winner I got correct. Which was all the major awards with the exception of The Hurt Locker for best picture (I picked Avatar). I truly enjoyed the whole thing (with the help of my DVR remote where I skipped over a few too long thank yous).

  2. Hi Jenny!
    I hope this means your computer is feeling better now?! Did you give it a rest cure? :)
    You sound like you have the same love/hate reaction I have to the Oscar shows - I can't stand to miss the telecast but afterward I feel like I lost several hours of my life, that I wish I could have back!!! GAH! And thank heavens for DVR's huh?!
    We didn't see Sherlock Holmes, I think it came out when I was so very ill? How did you like it?
    Happy happy Monday to you!

  3. How do you do it?! You've come up with another absolutely captivating list of blog lovliness! Yes, I enjoyed watching the Oscars last night. Steve Martin Always cracks me up. Twyla
