behind the times {plus a small giveaway}

I will be the first to admit that I am addicted to celebrity gossip. The checkout line at any store is my enemy, with all of the brightly colored magazine covers with juicy headlines just waiting for little old me to add one to my grocery pile. However, in an attempt to save money, I have cut out these worthless magazines {because buying one really only brings me an hour (tops) of enjoyment...then it's old news}. BUT I didn't realize how behind I am when it comes to celebrity gossip and news!

Here are some of the things I can't believe I missed:

1) Sarah Michelle Gellar is pregnant! Where have I been? I absolutely adore Sarah and Freddie. I have always thought their marriage is one to be admired because they are able to keep their lives out of the public eye, despite being major celebrities.


2) I missed out on hearing that Heidi Montag is going to be performing at the Miss Universe Pageant. I refuse to put a picture of that "celebrity" on my blog, but why in the world is she signed up to perform...in public?! Thoughts?

3) This isn't something I've missed, but I have to say that I am so excited about Julie and Julia! This looks like such a great movie and the added bonus is that Nora Ephron is behind it. She is AMAZING [hello - You've Got Mail]!!

I am having a hard time settling on one favorite actress. The first one that comes to mind is classic Meg Ryan, the Meg Ryan of You've Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle, and City of Angels. Another fave is Julia Roberts. What's not to love about her? Sandra Bullock is always a winner, too. It's great to have so many talented female actresses to choose from!
