Hollywood’s Biggest Night! February 27, 2011

What did you guys think of the Oscars? I was entertained… but a bit confused at times. I think Melissa Leo was drunk… very strange speech. And Anne Hathaway’s dresses were just… BAD! Who’s with me?

I watched the Oscars with my friend Erica and it was awesome. She’s got lots of film knowledge and she fills me in on the important info. She is also an amazing cook, and she whipped up such a great (Oscar-worthy) meal! Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Lemon Chicken and a Red Quinoa salad with raisins, cinnamon and pears. It was delicious. I contributed the colored cauliflower. I love colorful meals like this!

I only saw two of the nominated “Best Picture” films (Social Network and King’s Speech), so I guessed on most of the categories. I got 11 out of 24 right though!

For dessert, I made a new recipe. I hooked the laptop up to the tv in the kitchen to search for good dessert ideas. **

I found these Peanut Butter Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, that ended up being pretty good.

Served along side some Jelly Belly Beans (I have a million of them, remember?)

The show was good, the food was great, and the company was unrivaled. Thanks for a great night, Erica!


**Remember when Irving stole moved our TV off our bedroom wall to put it in the kitchen? Well we finally got a new one that should be installed tomorrow. Can’t wait to watch Netflix in bed again!

By popular demand, here’s some more our pictures from when we had Red Carpet Access during the 2005 Oscars! We were just in the right place at the right time and scored media tickets to the arrivals line. (And then we got to watch the show from the Press Room). It was my 10 minutes of (standing next to the) fame, so enjoy!

The Hollywood Dream February 1, 2011

When Irving and I moved out to Los Angeles, we had no jobs, no cars and no plan. We had a rented minivan full of stuff and one-room studio apartment that was steps away from Hollywood Blvd. Our address was located in ‘Hollywood, California’. My relatives back in Boston just thought that was the coolest thing in the world. We had three un-employed months of Southern California Bliss. We were sleeping on a futon mattress, sipping mimosas at noon, and soaking in the glitz of Hollywood.

Just a few short weeks after moving out here, we got invited to attend the 2005 Oscars — on the RED CARPET! We couldn’t believe how lucky we were. We got all glammed up and waited to mingle with the stars!

Welcome to Hollywood, Kelley and Irving!

I have lots more pics of celebs from that day. Let me know if you’re interested and I can roll them out little by little.

If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be? I used to want to meet Prince William.
