Best of 2009

I just found this post in my drafts. Oops! Oh well, better late than never. A few of my favorites from 2009.

Best Beauty Product: Clinique Up-lighting Liquid Illuminator. I probably would never have tried this except it came in one of the Clinique Bonus Gifts. I add a little to my cheekbone above my blush and it makes my skin look radiant. A little goes a long way, so see if you can get a sample at the Clinique counter.

Best TV - Modern Family, Glee and Mad Men.

Modern Family is so hysterically awesome. One of the best 21 minutes of my week. (I watch on Hulu - thus 21 minutes.)

I realize Mad Men isn't new to 2009, but it was new to me.

Worst TV - Cougar Town. I saw the first episode and thought it was horrible. When did a 40 year old women flashing a 14 year old boy become ok? And who wants to see a teenage boy walk in to see his mother.......nevermind. Yuk. Not watching that again.

Best Movie: Julie and Julia.

I bet you could have guessed that I loved this movie. Cooking and blogging. But Meryl Streep was absolute perfection. If she doesn't win an Oscar for this, there is no justice in the world. Soon after the DVD was released, a few of my friends and I had a "Julie and Julia Party". You should totally have one too! Bring your favorite food and watch the movie together. Just make sure everyone has seen it before so that you are able to talk throughout the movie. Sorry if we ruined it for you Kristi!

Other movies I liked:

500 Days of Summer- This was a seriously cool and underrated flick.
Avatar 3D - Worth the hype.
The Time Travelers Wife -Maybe even better than the book?
New Moon - YUM

Worst movie:

The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. - Don't judge me for seeing it. I was on the treadmill when I watched it, so it really didn't count.

Best investment - MacBook Pro. Changing from a Desktop PC to a Mac laptop was like changing from a sleeping bag to a pillowtop mattress. You don't go back, except in emergencies. I am stroking the keys right now. I love you my little beauty.

Favorite blog post - Of everything I wrote and posted last year, I think "Leaving a Legacy" was my favorite. It made me want to write my children every week. My favorite photos were the ones when Collin's neck disappeared.

Best change- Having a baby boy! Oh Collin. I love you and your wonderful thunder thighs. I may just have to wake you up right now for a cuddle. Well....probably not, but I am tempted.

What are some of your favorites from 2009?
