miscellany monday

happy monday everyone – i’ve added my random ramblings to carissa’s miscellany monday party!  check out carissa’s blog here and join in on the fun. 

{one} all star weekend.  i went to orlando this weekend to visit a friend of mine during nba all star weekend.  my sister also met us there to enjoy the festivities.  admittedly, i’m not the biggest basketball fan by any means.  i rarely watch any of the games and i don’t follow any specific team.  so needless to say that i didn’t recognize a majority of the players that were staying in our hotel.  on saturday night, my sister and i went out for a night out on the town…. let’s just say we had an adventure in downtown orlando.  on sunday, we  checked out the jam session and just hung out for a little bit before heading back home. 

{two} a couple of blog giveaways.  mary over at the bright side of the moon is celebrating her first blogiversary and she hosting a giveaway for a chance to win a $50.00 anthropologie gift card. check out her blog here for all of the details on how to enter.  this contest will be running until thursday, march 1st.  The lovely ladies, kathryn and carol, over at in pursuit of pretty things are celebrating their second blogiversary and they are hosting a giveaway for a chance to win a jason wu for target straw clutch and a $50.00 gift card to your choice of anthropologie, j.crew or nordstrom.  they are also giving four other readers a chance to win necklaces and/or bracelets from ember arts.  check out their blog here for all of the details on how to enter.  their contest will run through sunday, march 4th.

{three} oscar night. did you all have a chance to watch the oscars last night? were you all pleased with the results?  i was a little surprised that the artist won best picture, but i guess the academy of motion picture arts and sciences (ampas) knows best.  i’ll have to watch the movie when it comes out on video.  i was super happy for octavia spencer for her win of best actress in a supporting role.  i loved the help and i was really rooting for it to win for best picture.

now on to one of the most important parts of oscar night – the fashion.  i always enjoy watching the red carpet and following up with all of the trends.   this year i fell in love with a number of dress, but i’ve narrowed it down to 5 favorites.  Check them out and let me know if you had any favorites.  all pictures via
