i had to do some research on what you are supposed to wear to a professional fight. i mean, you see movies where people are wearing cocktail dresses and mink coats. i learned that you dress up more, the closer you are to the ring. so, i figured i could get a way with "club wear." it was fun getting all dressed up. of course, i carried my flip flops in my purse so i didn't have to walk a mile in my heals. its tough being a girl...
we, meaning me, the hubs, my dad and step-mom, had a great time. the under card fights started at 5pm. we got there around 6:30 and were able to see 5 under card fights. the main event started at 10:30. late!!! we didn't get out of there until after midnight. of course that meant a late night Dennys stop. here are some pics from Fight Night...

thats right. reeses peanut butter eggs. my all-time favorite candy EVER is a reeses cup. a hard chocolate coating and a soft peanut butter inside. YUMM.O. Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays, and you add a Reeses Egg to it, can you say Perfection? why is the egg so much better than a normal reeses cup, you ask? you get more peanut butter in the egg, and that is my favorite part. plus they are bigger. lots of calories. i will accept all donations and gifts of a reeses eggs anytime. thank you in advance. Side note: they also make reeses trees at christmas time. those are also good. :)
happy (almost) easter!

before i get to my take on the the fashions of the Oscars there are a couple of things about this night that stood out to me. first, the hosts, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, were actually pretty entertaining. Did anyone watch the Barbara Walters Oscar special? Get past the fact that Barbara is possibly the most awkward person ever, and lets talk about the Mo'Nique interview. She's strange. Any woman that hasn't shaved their legs in 40 years, and has an "open relationship" with their husband, is strange and wont be on the Christmas card list. She DID, however, win and award. Good for her. A big accomplishment tonight, a woman won best director for the first time ever. I can't believe that! W2G Kathryn Bigelow. Girl power! Lastly, I am so happy Sandra Bullock won best actress. She totally deserved it! If you havn't seen The Blind Side, you're missing out. If she didn't win, I was pulling for Gabourey Sidibe.
alright on to the fashion... lets start with the best.
Sandra Bullock looked stunning in this gown. I loved all the sparklyness but the lace at the top balanced it out and added a very feminine touch. Good job Sandy!
I really liked Rachel McAdams dress tonight. Nothing too over the top, but it looked great on her. I like the flowy and tie-dyed kinda look.
This is not a good pic of the dress, but I think Elizabeth Banks had the best use of ruffles tonight. There were lots of them on the red carpet, but I enjoyed the mermaid style and the color.
Salma Hayek is always beautiful. But, I really liked her red number tonight. Although, i do have to say it was a little fallish, but i'll still give it up to Salma for looking classy.
holy ruffles! Vera Farmiga is not rockin' it tonight. this is like a mix of 80's prom and my 9th grade cotillion dress. i do, however, like the color. but, the ruffles look like they're about to eat her. watch out!
there are no words. what happened, zoe saldana? did you fall in a pool of ink? those ruffle-like thingys at the bottom look like a spanish meringue dancers outfit. the only thing good about this is the waist up.
aaaaaaaaand worst dressed is... Charlize Theron. this is a beautiful lady, and i typically like what she wears, but this is all wrong. i like the color, but what are those rose-like applique things accentuating her breasts? like, hello here are my boobs. don't get me started on that train. double fail.
another Oscar night in the books. i'd like to thank the Academy for taking 3 1/2 hours of my life that i will never get back. goodnight.

here are a few of my favorites i found when searching the web...
SPANX, (a womans best friend! if its not, then you need to make it!), has come out with a swimwear line and i LOVE it! who wouldn't want tummy controlling swimwear? these were some of my favs from their website:
love the colorblocking on this one. makes it look sorta retro.
lets not forget you need the perfect cover-up too. this is especially true when you're at the beach. i found this one on Anthropologie's website.
happy swimsuit shopping, and good luck!
