    Happy Friday!

    It’s a snowy, yet warm-ish, morning here. It’s very strange, but sort of pretty, too.

    We ran out of iced coffee this morning, so Mal, Murphy, and I headed to Marylou’s to get our morning fix.

    Yes, the drive-thru is bright pink! Love it!

    I ordered a Peanut Butter Wonderful iced coffee with milk and no sugar—it’s plenty sweet without it!

    For breakfast, I whipped up a Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancake to which I added a thick layer of Teddie Peanut Butter and chia seeds. So delicious!

    It’s no secret that I love celebrities, and, of course, I’m in love/obsessed with some more than others, including:

    Ellen DeGeneres: Obviously. She’s pretty much my hero. I mean, why else would I wait two hours to see her walk by for 5 seconds? I’ve also applied for tickets to her show a half dozens times now (with every intention of hopping on a plane at last-minute’s notice). People, it WILL happen!

    Hoda Kotb: After seeing her at the Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards, I’ve become newly obsessed with her. She just seems like such a positive, down-to-earth person, who appreciates the little things in life.

    Bethenny Frankel: I’ve been a fan of Bethenny’s for a long time now. There’s just something about her that I can relate to. She doesn’t sugarcoat things (I like that about people) and her neurotic characteristics are a lot like mine.

    Jersey Shore cast: I wish I understood this one. I think the reason I love the Jersey Shore cast so much is that they don’t give a f*ck about what other people think of them, and they’re always up to something ridiculous and hilarious. I also just really want to spend one night boozing-face with them at Karma. Although, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t survive.

    Ryan Reynolds: I don’t need to explain this one, do I? I’ll just post a picture of him.


    Ok, two.


    And Eva Longoria: I recently read an interview with her, and she just seems like someone I’d want to hangout with and chat about life over a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

    Her interview and mini Q & A (“Eva’s Favorites”) also inspired today’s post!

    Is Bethany Frankel a celebrity? What is she famous for? I know I’ve seen/heard her name but am I living under a rock or something? What type of celebrity is she?

    I hope this doesn’t sound crazy, but are we the same person? I’m obsessed with Ellen, Bethenny, jersey shore folk, and Ryan! Ellen is the bomb dot com…she’s my ‘if you could meets anyone living or dead …’ I’d love to party with the shore, too. I’d likely die but so worth it.

    I also LOVE Ellen and the Jersey Short cast. I know a lot of people hate on the JS cast, but I can’t help but appreciate the fact that they do NOT take themselves too seriously. How can you hate on them? There is a reason they are well-known. If everyone really “hated” them…no one would watch their show. But they do…soo yea get over it. Maybe those that hate them need to take a lesson from their book and not take themselves quite so seriously.
