Wind Swept

This is a bit of a long post because there is just so much to catch up on. First off, I'm sure you'll all be thrilled to know that I survived Hurricane Irene...or what was left of it by the time it got to NJ.  Even better is that my office is located in a "flood zone" so I received 2 voicemails from my managers telling me to just stay home from work on Monday, like I really needed convincing!

Now a recap of the fun and exciting times that was the wedding of Hot Pants Pally (I guess I need to come up with a new nickname for her).  Of course prior to the wedding there has to be the BACHELORETTE PARTY!!!  All the girls saddled up and headed to Harrah's in Atlantic City for the festivities.  What would the night bring: Booze? Definitely. Dancing? Of course.  Guac? Well, it's just not a party with the guacamole!
*dress: BCBG, earrings: Apricot Lane boutique (Fairfield, CT), shoes: Halston for Bakers
The SUPA HOT bride to be

What do you use when you can't find the ice bucket...garbage can.

Private jacuzzi at The Pool!  Always an interesting time.

Poor HPP was having anxiety attacks all week leading up to her wedding because the forecast called for thunderstorms Thursday and Friday.  Of course she's dreamt of getting married on the beach for forever, and come rain or shine she was doing it.  Someone up there was clearly looking out for the girl because Friday turned out to be beautiful out.

This was really freaky...HUNDREDS of birds bobbing in the ocean outside the reception venue.  I've never seen anything like it.  A little to Hitchcockian for comfort.
In case you can't tell, that's the groom's feet at the top right of the pic.  It was *THAT* kind of wedding.
And just for fun...that's the bride's dad on the right.  HEYYYOOOOOOO!

Celebrity Crush of the Week

Saturday night Lindz and I went to see "Crazy, Stupid, Love."  I honestly didn't know what to expect from this movie since the previews were ambiguous on whether it was a comedy or drama.  Definitely 100% dramedy...but more comedy than dramz.  Every character was portrayed to a tee by the actor cast in the role, and none more perfectly than Mr. Ryan Gosling.  Don't get me wrong, RG has been on my radar since his days with the Mickey Mouse Club with Britney, Christina, JC, and Justin.  Isn't he adorable!
Obviously almost every woman in the world has seen "The Notebook", and fell in love with Noah instantly.  I saw it on a cross country flight to San Diego and the ENTIRE plane was bawling by the time we landed. 

Mr. Gosling has reached new levels of HAWTNESS in "Crazy, Stupid, Love."  Exhibit A:
And then the brotha took the shirt OFF...Exhibit B:
Anywho, I'm officially back in lust with Ryan Gosling.  My bro's girlfriend introduced me to a Tumblr site today called Fuck Yeah! Ryan Gosling which superimposes sayings that begin with "Hey girl,..." onto pics of RG.  They are hysterical.  Some of my recent faves:

Long story short, go see this movie.  Even if it's only to see Ryan Gosling shirtless doing the lift from Dirty Dancing...just sayin'.

Hair DID

I've been in a hair funk for the past year, or maybe even more. Coupled with my work funk of the past 6 months I decided it was time for a change.  Let me tell you my hair guru, Mala, was beyond thrilled that I was ready to take the plunge.  Here were my inspiration looks:

Here it is...
I'm so happy with the results.  What do you guys think?
