Crafts, Cupcakes and Oscars

This morning we had just enough time to go for bagels together before Chris started working. We've hardly seen each other this week, and next week doesn't look to be much better. Sigh. At least we'll both be home tomorrow night for the Oscars ... and the ASU-UofA game. Woop woop.

This is how I've tried to keep busy today:


Made some jewelry, until I ran out of silver headpins and earring hooks.


Started some scrapbook pages from my D.C. trip, but couldn't finish since I don't have prints of the pictures yet.

Made Oscar ballots for Chris and I for tomorrow night.

If I win the Oscar contest, he's treating to cupcakes from Reno's new cupcakery (Don't they look yummy? I can't wait to try the Geiger Grade). If Chris wins, I'm treating to Coldsone. It's pretty much a win-win. (Except for the bragging rights part.)

Speaking of Oscars, yesterday I went to see The Wrestler. It's been years since I've been to the movies alone, and really it wasn't so bad - the hard part, I realized, was not being able to talk about it afterward. It's a really good movie, if you're into sad movies. But I still have no idea how the Oscar votes will fall ... any predictions?

I often wonder what I did before having children. I'm pretty sure I didn't do any of those things though. Hmmmm.....

You and your husband are so very cute! I love that you are betting on the Oscars-so fun! I didn't get to see all the movies this year so I have no predictions myself.

I was super happy with Sean Penn winning for Milk and all the awards for Slumdog Millionaire. So who won? You or Chris?

Cupcakes it is!

Chris said...

But when the bonus point is counted we actually tied.

Tammy said...

There was no bonus point. You can't just make stuff up to make it so you're not the loser.

Congrats - those cupcakes look yummy so I hope you enjoy!
