PRETTIES + FUNNIES | I’m headed to Laguna for a wedding, but not before I share my FAVE GOWN EVER.

Hello and welcome to Friday, friendlies!  As many of you already know, yours truly is heading out to Laguna Beach for a wedding this weekend (translation: rehearsal dinner Fri, wedding Sat, brunch Sun), so TKB’s on break ’til Monday, at which point your faces will collectively be struck by the loving but firm hands of our ridiculously talented guest bloggers.  They are moderately dope, so methinks you will LOVE.  Heck, you’ll probably become regular readers of their blogs, if you aren’t already.  I love it when that happens. :)

Anywho, yeah I did say we’re on break ’til Monday, but I seem to still be writing a post here.  Interesting.  Ok, here’s what I’m gonna do - and I sincerely hope you enjoy it – I’m going to share with you some random things that either made me belly laugh, made me go “wha?” and/or totally inspired me this week.  Sort of not wedding related at all.  Which I think is kind of the fun of this post.  We’ll be back to normal on Monday, but today feels like a great day for some randomness, wouldn’tcha say?  Hope you have a good time along with me :)


#1 -

#2 – “The seal team found an extensive amount of porn in Osama bin Laden’s compound. Investigators are wondering if the Al Quada leader was using it to plan terror attacks.” – News Channel 4, Chuck Scarborough

#3 & #4 – I’m dying for a reason to buy one of these rugs.  Dying.

#5 & #6 – French bulldogs from around the internets.  Note: the pup on the right is Bambino’s doppelganger.  Because you guys, are they not IDENTICAL?????

#7 – Olivia Wilde in Reem Acra.  This has been, is, and will forever continue to be my ultimate favorite gown in the whole wide world EVER.

And now, as we welcome the weekend, here’s Bambino McPuppyPants in “Chillin’ with the Window Down…”

That’s papa holding him.  You guys, I seriously love the way he looks when he experiences new things. :)

So, thoughts if you will on any of the above?  Any faves? :)

Arighty, hugs and high fives to each and every one of you!  I will miss you while I soak up rays and attend wedding-related activities in Lauren Conrad’s old stomping grounds!  Yeah, I watch those shows.  Don’t hate, participate! ;)

Seacrest out.

Love all of this...

    Hahaha if #6 wasn’t in BED I would swear it was MPP! Have an amazing time in Laguna! We’ll miss you!

    Shimmery and cap sleeves go together like applesauce and cinnamon or mortgage payments and depression =)

    Seriously, you and Seniorcito Babinocito have become my crack. I’m going to have withdrawls or somesuch. I find myself telling my puppy what your has done. What-tha…Anyhoodle. … … I thought no hooman beds for sleeps? ???

    Olivia (and I can call her that) :::puffonfakecigaretteforcoolness:::, can be in a paper sack and I’d be all sorts of wowzers. But…honestly, do ya think that gown comes in a size with more than one number?

    Travel safely…

    J – RIGHT? Unbelievable resemblance. I think I’d mistake him for Bam, myself! Would that make me a bad mama? I already feel bad enough leaving him for this wedding trip. :)

    Corinna – LOL, exactly. :)

    Mimi – I don’t believe I’ve been called ‘crack’ before. I feel honored, which is odd. I’ll be back before you know it ;)

    1. Don’t let Bambino see that photo of his doppelganger or he’ll start asking questions about the bed.

    2. That’s why Olivia Wilde gets to bang Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Gosling

    Have fun!

    The applesauce convo is making me laugh out loud awkwardly at my desk while no one is around me. But people can hear me laughing. SO funny. I LOVE that dress also. Have a super fun time in Laguna!

  7. Lena on June 3, 2011

    I’m in heaven/stitches. God Bless You.

    Enjoy Laguna, don’t forget your sunscreen and be sure to bring back some gossip about an insular group of wealthy teens!

  8. I LOVE damnyouautocorrect. It makes me laugh til I cry on a regular basis. And I loved that one! Epic. Gorgeous dress too! Have fun in Laguna!

  9. Um, this may be one of my fave posts yet – well, actually, I have so many others too, but this one is great – I am right there with you on the dress – DYING! The dog stuff is great and I think I snorted too when I read the apple sauce thing. Awesome. Thank you for making my day – it’s been a stinky one, but I knew if I read your post, I would at least be smiling for a few minutes, so thank you. Have a blast in Laguna! :)

    Beautiful gown but as ever, the pup steals the show!

  11. Liesl on June 5, 2011

    That text message cracked me up! Love it! As for dress on Olivia Wilde…STUNNING!!!

    Liesl :)

  12. Liesl on June 5, 2011

    P.S. Your puppy is adorable! :)

    Oliva’s dress is absolutely gorgeous, although anything on her is beautiful. The simple, elegant look is just stunning and the white dress is the perfect contrast to her dark hair.

  14. Alison on June 8, 2011

    Jenna – You make excellent points when you number them. You are right on both counts. And I especially appreciate the tip within #1. No computer time for Bambino for awhile! ;)

    Alicia – When I first came across the motts convo I laughed softly but intensely for at least several minutes. I thought, “this is so funny. I’m laughing so hard. It’s GOT to be funny to others… right, self? Well, self, often your sense of humor is a little odd, so maybe not? No, I’m posting it. I have to see if I’m alone in this.”

    So… yay, it worked out! :)

    Lena – Ok you just made me laugh out loud with that last bit. AS ALWAYS.

    OMG LMAO over the Apple Sauce… too brilliant!!! The dress is all sorts of stunning, and that chevron rug needs to be mine!!
