Our Oscar Night: The Re-Cap!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Oscar Night!  The girls were served their special Academy Award Cheese Snacks on pink napkins...although LadyBug couldn't eat hers until I broke it into a zillion pieces.  They did like them though!  They are Himalayan Chews and one of the girls faves!

We dined on Trader Joe's Steak and Ale Pot Pies and Wild Berry Lemonade with salad.

A nice, warm fire in the fireplace was a MUST as it is zero degrees outside!

As a surprise, Ben made us a special Academy Award dessert with some sort of special cherry sauce and Vanilla Bean ice cream.  It was delicious!  

Only a few of my predictions came true...I was sad that Bradley Cooper did not win for Best Actor...and "American Sniper" didn't win Best Picture.  I was VERY happy for Julianne Moore as I have heard she did an awesome job in "Still Alice".  I have read the book, but have not yet seen the movie.  I hadn't seen many of the movies that were nominated and since we go weekly...that was a surprise!!  I will see if I can download some of them .... like "Birdman".  I am curious about that one!  I also want to see "Boyhood".

I like Neil Patrick Harris, but I wasn't all that thrilled about his hosting.  I think there have been others who have done a better job.  The "underwear" thing...was a bit much.  

My Best Dressed Picks:  (There were SO MANY!!)

Nicole Kidman

Jennifer Aniston

Scarlett Johanssen

Jennifer Lopez

Meryl Streep

Reese Witherspoon

What a feast you had on Oscar night. Those pot pies looked scrumptious and I bet they hit the spot, making you feel all warm and cozy.

Aw shucks, sorry to hear that American Sniper didn't win because even though I haven't seen it, I had a feeling I would win. Wow...your Oscar Night looked fun and very yummy! Don't you love Trader Joe's? I got my Thanksgiving Day dinner there last year and it was delicious! And I love that you had your fireplace lit. I miss not having one.

I adore Meryl Streep's ensemble. Simple and classy!

Happy Monday, Jeanne!
X to you and the girlx

Looks like a fun Oscar night!

We had a fun pawty also with salad and crab and cherry pie. Mommy said it wasn't the best Oscars, kind of boring and Neil didn't do such a great job. We did have fun though all snugging together.

Looks like you had quite a gala event there.

We watch it much the same way as you...with the husband in another room. LOL. I liked Neil but nobody can ever come close to Billy Crystal. I thought the underwear thing was funny but also glad that most of the camera work was from above the waist.

It sounds like you had lots of fun. What a classy lady Meryl Streep is. I didn't see the show last night but I admire her more with every film she does.
