i love tuesdays

dear friends, it’s tuesday. that means there is new music in the world.

let’s celebrate.

the beautiful & magical Adele‘s album 21 is finally out in America.

buy it if it’s the last thing you do.

my personal favorites are “Rumor Has It” & “Turning Tables

Trent Dabbs also released an album today, called Southerner & I’m proud to say I got to design it.

Not only is Mr.Dabbs a mighty fine songwriter, he’s also a mighty fine dancer.

that being said, buy it.

here are a couple of songs you might like…

Follow Suit” & “Keep Me Young

{And just because I like you, and I want you to know about good music…

you should probably listen to this song by one of my favorites, Mikky Ekko

I’ve been listening to his EP Blues on repeat for a few days now, and I think it’s good for your soul.}

always a bridesmaid…

i need to see the movie Bridesmaids immediately.

looks a little like a female Hangover…with Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph and my favorite gal from Reno 911, Wendi McLendon-Covey

i am totally, 100% on board.

free bird

I’ve been a fan of Josiah Leming ever since his short, but memorable run on American Idol.

Unlike many of his counterparts on America’s favorite talent show, this kid really is an artist.

check him out HERE, HERE, or HERE.

then click the lovely photo to get a free download of his new single…

(and, really, who doesn’t love free stuff?)

it happened in a creepy basement

i got a text at 8 last night telling me that Mumford & Sons was playing a secret show at 9. with more than a little doubt, i headed to the (very creepy) basement of a house less than a mile from mine…

and heaven help me – it was true.

the band played songs from their last album, and a few new ones they had just written. it was excellent.

at one point, i was wedged so close to Marcus Mumford, that his elbow grazed my boob at least 15 times.

and not only did i get molested by Mumford, I got to share the basement with his friends Jake Gyllenhaal & Carey Mulligan.

no big deal.

*****

{just a quick note about those two}

-Carey Mulligan is officially the most adorable person I’ve seen in real life. She & Marcus Mumford seemed to have a thing going on…I can’t be sure, maybe they were just affectionate friends, but let me tell you, they should get something started.

-after some very creepy eavesdropping on my part, I decided that Jake Gyllenhaal is basically a weird, well-meaning home schooler. Don’t act like you don’t know what I mean; kind of awkward, making lame jokes, pretty loud.

It’s so odd seeing movie stars in real life…much less in a basement in Green Hills.

last night was surreal.

(p.s. Jake Gyllenhaal was drinking Cheerwine – try to deal with that mental image)

it’s like christmas

In a desperate attempt to stop listening to Big Time Rush on repeat (don’t judge me)

I searched out Adele’s new album 21 – which isn’t out in the US until 2/22 –

lucky for you, i found it streaming on grooveshark.com…

go HERE

enjoy! (she is a genius)

current favorites include “Turning Tables,” “I’ll Be Waiting,” “One And Only” & “Rumor Has It

step by step

stepdads probably don’t come much cooler (or more attractive) than Ashton Kutcher.

here he is getting his family band on with Demi Moore‘s daughter Scout.

I can play tambourine… want to adopt me?

(hey Scout – you’re super awesome. I can’t decide what’s better – that fur hat or your singing.)

Let’s Catch Up…

I’ve been pretty busy the last week or so…a wedding and a design conference have completely sidetracked what’s important here:

famous people.

inevitably, the minute I turn my back, all hell breaks loose and celebrities start having babies and getting engaged and going to awards shows…so let’s talk.

Kat Von D & Jesse James are engaged.

I won’t lie, there’s a small part of me who likes these two… I mean, let bygones be bygones right?

(the bigger part of me loves Sandra Bullock.)

but what they hey, good luck, y’all.

Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman had a baby girl named Faith via a surrogate in December.

I can’t wait to see the happy family wandering the streets of Nashville…way to keep a secret, y’all!

Claire Danes, Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone & Angelina Jolie looked unreal at the Golden Globes.

go HERE to have a look at all the pretty dresses (and some of the bad ones – i’m looking at you January Jones)…

American Idol premiered this week, and I missed it. You better believe I’m jumping on board this season.

I am so into J.Lo, it’s ridiculous.

fringe pants!

p.s. I MET MONDO! love love love.
