12 Jan


This weekend was one of the most relaxing weekends I can remember in a long time. We pretty much did a whole lot of nothing for two days straight. The fact that it was grey and rainy in LA most of the weekend definitely helped. We stayed in Friday night with take-out food and watched the last few episodes of our new favorite show on Netflix “Marco Polo”. Have you seen it? It’s soooo good. This coming from a girl who isn’t normally a fan of historical television shows. We watched the entire first season in a few days- it’s safe to say that we are addicted.

Saturday we made an attempt to get out of the house and took a drive down to El Segundo to hit up a warehouse sale that Restoration Hardware was having. We are on a hunt for new lighting fixtures as well as counter stools for our kitchen island. Sadly, the sale was a total bust. They mostly had leather couches and canopy beds for sale- neither of which we are in need of. When we got home from our El Segundo adventure it was decided that we wouldn’t be leaving the house again, other than to pick up Thai food for dinner. We spent the afternoon doing stuff around the house…Brian researched how to build a desk for our office (a project that he will hopefully complete next weekend!) while I organized our kitchen cabinets and laundry room. I’m on a serious organizing kick at the moment. Maybe it’s because I’ve cut out sugar, gluten and alcohol for the month of January and need a distraction but I am an unstoppable organizing machine at the moment. Need anything organized at your house??? I’m available.

On Sunday we kept the weekend nesting theme going and spent the whole day in again. Well, other than a trip to the market to grab a few things I needed to tackle a chicken recipe for dinner that evening.  I decided it would be nice to cook dinner for Brian since I would be forcing him to sit through five hours of Golden Globe coverage.




a friendly golden globe bet... I won.

a friendly golden globe bet… I won.

Every time I make him sit through an award show I think of the first time I made him watch the Golden Globes with me and recorded some of the things he said…

“Oh look it’s Brad and Angie! Yay!” said with total disdain

“If Ryan Gosling didn’t open his mouth I think I would like him much better”

“she’s hot”

“That’s a really stupid headband” said about Michelle William’s headband

“How many other boyfriends and husbands do you think there are in the world that are being forced to watch the Golden Globes? Id love to know the number- I bet it’s big”

“Did you finish your cookie?”

“Stupid show”

“That’s a horrible dress”

“Don’t worry I’ll take a nap in a few minutes and stop talking”



“Like Steven Spielberg needed another award”

“He looks tan!”

“That’s her husband?!”

As he grabs the controller from me he says “If we have to watch this then it should at least be on HD”

“We are watching the A team at 8 o’clock”

me….”I didn’t know you wanted to see that”

Brian…”I don’t really…I just know you don’t want to see it”

Keeping with tradition I jotted down a few things Brian could be heard muttering during this years Golden Globe awards…

“She looks super pretty!” – regarding Naomi Watts

“Wait! They’re married????” – regarding Naomi Watts & Liev Schreiber

“Yes and they have two kids.” – me

“I bet they have really attractive kids” said Brian thoughtfully

“Like he needed another way to make money.” – said with disgust in response to Ryan Seacrest wearing a suit made by his own fashion label

“He’s aged quite well.” – regarding Ethan Hawke

“My crush looks terrible.” said with shock in regards to Kate Mara

“I have no idea who he is.” – while shaking his head

“I mean, how can you not love her, right?” – regarding Emily Blunt

“You’re a woman without chardonnay, sugar or carbs…trust me I won’t take watching the Golden Globes away from you.” – said to me

“Jude law cheated on her???”

no words…just whistling…upon seeing Kate Hudson

    I sometimes prefer to watch shows with Marty – I love his running commentary! I also used to love watching Award Shows with my parents. My dad had a similar commentary that made the boring moments – not so boring. 🙂 Sounds like a wonderful, relaxing weekend. I love the picture of Frank!!

    I’m assuming the Jude Law comment was in reference to Sienna Miller? I think we were all shocked at Nannygate. Of course, Sienna is not exactly an angel either, she was involved with a married guy a few years ago I remember.

    And I’m not sure if Ethan Hawke has aged that well? He looks okay I guess.
