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!!)
