Naturally, after we start a show about drinking my co-hosts wanted to quit drinking to lose weight. Wow, thanks guys. So instead of me drinking alone, because damn it we’re not quitting, we agreed on a Keto cocktail off while we discussed the 2019 Oscar nominations.
We invited our friend Caitlyn on to judge our carb friendly beverages. We attempted a Keto Mojito, Keto Blood Orange Jalapeño Margarita, and a simple Vodka/Sparkling Water.
It is absolutely no secret that Oscar Sunday is my FAVORITE Sunday in the entire calendar year. Nothing comes close to that magic. I love the champagne, the fashion, the
Leo snubs deserved awards. I love the Oscars so much, I went to the red carpet last year and screamed at celebrities. No, for real, check it out. Pssssttt….The freebies are at the end! Scroll down.
So, I said I wanted to write about more things that I enjoyed. You know what I really enjoy? Horror movies. So, I’m gunna speak to you about Hereditary today. Yeah, THAT, Hereditary. This movie chilled me in a way very very few have the ability to do. I can only compare it to Debra Logan, or The Visit. Which makes it seem like I’m only scared of old people. Which still might be true.
Also, I should say, I am an above average film analyzer. I took a large amount of film classes in College, mostly because you just watched movies. However, I actually learned a lot about foreshadowing and symbolism and shit. So, Im going to have fun doing this.
In my defense, I had planned to write this post last week but life got in the way, as it always does. I am not big on New Years Resolutions, I think they are dumb. Why wait for a certain day to start something I’m never going to follow through on? I can do that today. However, I did feel I wanted to focus on something this year. Less of a resolution, more of a promise to myself.
I wanted to be more authentic, more me. When I started this blogging adventure, there were so many people telling you want to do and how to succeed. “Post this many times a day” “Post this content” “Make your Instagram themed, cohesive, only post if it matches”
I have had eye problems for really as long as I can remember. For Example, I had an offensive amount of sty’s in both of my eyes in the second grade which caused me to look like a troll. Then, I developed a horrific reaction to contacts in high school, which they told me was caused by significant scarring on both of my eyes. Then, I got LASIK. Glasses were not cool yet, and I was too young to realize how insanely expensive it was. $2,800 bucks when I was a freshman in college? Whatever, I just spent that in books. $2,800 dollars as a post graduate, underpaid, adult? You can pry that shit out of my cold, dead, bony, hands. The only downside I ever hear from LASIK was
Well, well, well…… They have finally given in. I was allowed to get us the champagne served at Kate & William and Harry & Meghan’s wedding receptions. I am a Royal Family junkie, let me enjoy things. So, they agreed to split the cost so we could use it for the show. Honestly though, it was only like $65. The Queen is frugal, but I would be too if I had to serve beverages to hundreds of elites.
About 30 minutes into the mess that was Sips and Scandals Episode 4, we decided we wanted to talk about the Golden Globes. I told my rambunctious cohorts that we COULD but only if we did it fast because this video was like 45 minutes long and held almost nothing of substance. Which was probably why it was our most popular episode lol.
Well, we were gone for a while. Ashleys dog had a mass removed from a joint in his leg, so the recovery has been long. However, we are a month out and he is healing perfectly!
Losing a grandparent at any age, I’d imagine, is traumatic. However, (luckily?), I have not lost a grandparent as an adult. Only as a child. I don’t know if thats lucky or not honestly.
I lost my grandpa when I was six years old, and because life is completely unfair, it was a few days before Christmas. If you told me I had to pick one moment in time that changed my life forever, it would be this hands down. I cant help but think of all the ways my life would be different if he was still here. I would have so many different skills, so many different stories, a whole entire different life. However, these are the cards that have been dealt to me, so play them I must.
“The Climb” by Miley Cyrus plays softly in the background……
I can almost seeeeee it. That dream I’m dreaminnnn…
How did I even make it here? (literally we made it here because my domain auto renewed on my debit card). I was supposed to be paying attention in my Intro to Law class, which was a battle that teacher was never going to win. A three hour class on a Saturday? Im out, I mean I was there, but you don’t have my full undivided attention at those hours.
