Turkey Day & some exciting news!

I know I keep saying I'll blog regularly. I schedule a post or two, get excited about it for a minute and fall off the wagon again. When you're sharing a computer with your significant other, have two children, a full-time job, and a life... well, sometimes blogging falls to the wayside. I am here to report that a shiny, pink Dell laptop of my very own will be here in the next couple of days. It's an early Christmas present from The Hero. I will definitely be blogging regularly very soon. So, my iPod is named Angie. My iPhone is named Nora. My laptop, which isn't even here yet, has already been named. You'll be formally introduced when she arrives. I seriously can't wait.



In the upcoming weeks, I have some fun posts planned including...
A WEEK OF GIVEAWAYS!

I hope you and yours had a fabulous Thanksgiving.

The Talk of Tinseltown; Brad Pitt to Retire?

Jennifer Lopez is rumored to be hooking up with one of her backup dancers, Casper Smart. Casper is a young 24. You go, JLo!


Singer Adele is recovering after laser surgery on her vocal chords. She took to her blog to say she's doing really well. I seriously love Adele. Get well soon!


In the new issue of Rolling Stone, George Clooney says he once thought about ending his life. He severely injured his spine in 2005 while filming Syriana. The pain was so bad, he thought ending his life would be the only way to cope. Your fans are so glad you didn't.


As promised, Justin Timberlake attended the Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, Virginia with Corporal Kelsey De Santis. She invited him via YouTube. If that's all it takes, I'm making a video as soon as I get home. "Robert Pattinson, I know you're busy, but will you please go to my work Christmas party with me?"


During an appearance on Australia's 60 Minutes, Brad Pitt said he plans to retire at the age of 50. He goes on to say how he'd like to focus on his work behind the camera as a producer. But don't give up on him just yet. He also said, "I am looking forward to playing a foul-mouthed grumpy old dude one day."



The Talk of Tinseltown is brought to you today by...

Tower Heist

The Hero and I were actually able to get out of the house without the kids this past weekend. We went to see Tower Heist with Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller. Eddie and Ben starred alongside Casey Affleck, Alan Alda, Gabourey Sidibe, and Tea Leoni. I went in with one expectation. I hope it's funny!

The movie didn't disappoint. It's about a group of employees who fall victim to a wealthy business man. They ban together to rob the man who robbed them. I laughed out loud throughout the whole movie. I may have even snorted a time or two. {Yes, I do that sometimes.} This is the first comedy I've seen in a long time that I actually want to see again and again. Eddie Murphy was recently on The Ellen DeGeneres show. He said he was happy to be playing a 'streety' guy after being in so many family films in recent years. If you thought Eddie Murphy left, he's definitely back in this role. If you were on the fence about Tower Heist, I highly recommend it. It's hilarious!

Target Tuesday; New Fave Outfit

Today, I'm linking up with Tara from Fabulous But Evil for Target Tuesday.

I hit up Target two to three times a week. I often go in for necessities and leave with other items.

I don't know how it happens. Honest, I don't!

Here's a look at an outfit I recently purchased when I went in for razors.







I wore this to work last Friday with black tights.

The compliments were endless from the men and women in my office.

It's absolutely my new fave outfit.

What are you loving at Target?

So, do you believe in vampires?

If you keep up with the news even a tiny bit, you may have seen something about this. There are pictures of a couple of men from the late 1800s floating around that look a little bit like Nicolas Cage and John Travolta.





So, I have to ask.

If you weren't a believer before, do you believe in vampires now?

Falling for fall

Fall is my favorite time of year for many reasons. There's the clothes, the weather and the holidays. There's football, warm drinks and beautiful foliage.































I live for this time of year. How about you?
