The Most Magical Time of the Year

Most folks have a hard time with January.  The holidays are over.  The weather usually isn't so great.  Still trying to hang onto New Year's Resolutions.  College football is over. 

I, on the other hand, love January!  What's not to love!  It's a new year and I luv, luv, luv writing in a fresh, new Lilly calendar!  NFL Play-offs are going on, Super Bowl is coming up.  Hockey is back!  The Miss America pageant!  Miss NY and Miss SC were my favorites right from the beginning.  SC was the favorite and it was hers to lose.  And she did.  I hated her gown and I thought she blew her question.  Miss NY looked like she was having fun and her tap dance was adorable (I love tap -- it's a dying art form!). She's a beautiful, healthy girl and I think she'll make a wonderful Miss America! 

Sunday was the Golden Globes.  Tina and Amy did a bang up job and kept things light.  I thought Kevin Costner's acceptance speech was classy and I have no idea what the hell Jodie Foster said.  She looked beautiful but she rambled so bad.  I think she was trying to officially come out, I think she was trying to retire.  IDK. 
I thought Jessica Alba looked beautiful but maybe a little too prom?  I feel like a lot of T-bone's friends had a similar silhouette at last year's Hoover Prom. 
I have not seen Les Miserables and have no desire to see it.  Musicals just aren't my thing.  But I do think Anne Hathaway looks radiant and this gown just accentuates her long lean lines. 
Again, I don't watch Homeland and have never been much of a Claire Danes fan but wow!  She looks very sexy and glamorous!
Eva Longoria looks like she's trying to hard to be sexy with all this leg action going on. 
I am probably one of the few people who liked Taylor Swift's gown.  The color was beautiful and the back was gorgeous.  The back of the gown really made it spectacular.  Unfortunately, they didn't really show the back on the red carpet pre-shows  I thought she looked grown up and was glad to see her step out of her comfort zone. 

Jessica Chastain is getting a lot of bad reviews for the dress (doesn't look like it fits correctly in the boobs) and her hair (looks very thin on top). 
Salma Hayek!  Va-Va-Voom.  She's a tiny little thing (probably close to me in height) but she's very voluptuous.  I love how she dresses! 
Jennifer Lawrence's dress had weird boobs.  The color was pretty and she accessorized well but my eye goes right to those crazy boobs. 
I don't watch Glee but thought Lea Michelle looked beautiful.  Very youthful and age appropriate. 
I am not a Hayden Panettiere fan at all.  Having said that, let me also state that I love her and her character on the show Nashville.  Again, I think she looks fresh, young and age appropriate. 

So mark your calendars and set your DVR's for the upcoming awards shows:
