Featured in The Knot Spring 2014!

It seems like we took this trip forever ago now, but after our wedding we only had time for a mini-moon before heading to another friend’s wedding in Jamaica.  So, Kev + I headed to Arizona for a grand ole southwestern time at L’Auberge de Sedona and the Ritz Carlton Resort at Dove Mountain.  The Knot featured us as a Real Honeymoon in their Spring 2014 edition!  So exciting!

Arizona is incredibly gorgeous + not all that difficult to get to from the ATL.  Read about our trip in The Knot and plan one of your own!

Fifty Shades of Grey Fantasy Casting…

Welcome to my new favorite pastime: Trying to guess who will play the main characters in the movie version of the Fifty Shades of Grey series has become quite a hobby for me of late.  I’ve been spending copious amounts of time, energy, and contemplation working on this, y’all.  And, I strongly stand by my selections.

So, let’s proceed, shall we?

I am not really concerned at this point with supporting characters (Kate, Jose, Elliot, etc.), but I have been keeping them in mind to some extent.  My main focus, however, is on Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele, and Mrs. Robinson.  Below are my top choices for each.

CHRISTIAN GREY (Note: I am going to be really disappointed if Rob Pattinson or Ian Somerhalder are selected for this role.  I strongly feel that Christian should be a bit more obscure.)

Matt Bomer

 

Armie Hammer

 

Chris Hemsworth

 

Colin Egglesfield

And, probably the most obvious choice of all…

Q+DD regular: Kevin???

JUST kidding!!  :)

ANASTASIA STEELE

Emilia Clarke

 

Lily Collins

 

Alexis Bledel

 

Elizabeth Olsen

MRS. ROBINSON

Ellen Barkin

 

Michelle Pfeiffer

So, there you have it.  Thoughts?  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Want to help me become the casting director??  Can’t wait to see how this movie unfolds…

My New Addiction.

Ever since I finished The Walking DeadThe Hunger Games, + 50 Shades of Grey series (back to back), I’ve been seriously itching for something to fill the void. 

Kevin and I were advised to take on THIS bad boy.

We started it last night, and we’re currently on season 1 episode 3 (+ already rockin’ a pretty serious addiction).  This is going to be AWESOME!

Is There Life After The Hunger Games??

I’ve been obsessively reading The Hunger Games for the past few weeks, and I’ve FINALLY finished the series!

I loooooooooved them!  Gobbled them up!  (Took several weeks because I’m a v. slow reader.)  I even dreamt about them.  I was totally transported to Panem for WEEKS!  Needless to say, it was exciting to find out what happened to Katniss + Ko., but I’m SUPER bummed that it’s all overBlahhhhhhh.

So, what am I supposed to do now?  :(

Shall I read these bad boys??

May the odds be forever + ever if your favor…
