Happy 2nd Birthday Coco Bunny!!!

Wow...wooow....wowza!  You are 2!  What in the world is going on?  

Ummmm Father Time...could you just hold on a quick second?   Just like a teeny tiny moment so we can catch an extra kiss, snuggle, giggle or tear?    You move so fast it's hard to breathe sometimes for fear we will miss something.   The only solace I have in your rapid pace is the lesson I continually hold on tight to the gorgeous and precious moments we are lucky enough to capture.

Dear Perfectly Perfect...sweetest of sweet, cutest of all that is cute and raddest of rad Coco Reese Lakshmi Kanal,

I can not believe it has been 2 years,  730 days, 17520 hours and 1051200 minutes since you "popped" into our lives and changed them forever and ever and ever and ever (and the lives of everyone you have touched or will touch in the amazing years you are about to live).

It seems like last night that your daddy and I held you and kissed you for the first time.  Like 2 hours ago that we took you on your first tour of your new home all swaddled up while we shook with fear and held you feeling like we won the best lottery in the world.  We fell madly in love with you that day, 2 years ago, and keep falling deeper and deeper and crazier in love with you every day that passes.  You absolutely are the sweetest thing.

I am so proud to be your mommy, your friend, your partner in crime and guide in this journey.  I am so happy you chose US to be your parents.  We are honored, humbled, and ecstatic to call you our bunny baby.  You make us laugh every day with your goofiness and jokes,  cry when we look into your gorgeous eyes that glisten and sparkle and melt when we hold your hand or snuggle you in our arms.

We would play playdoh with you until our hair turns grey, our creases turn to wrinkles and bones ache.  We would pull you in your wagon until the sun stopped shining and read to you until the moon gets too tired to glow.  We would buy every clock, watch and timer in the world if we could stop them all just to play with you longer.  But until then we will be so happy just to be a part of every moment we can with you, be present in your presence and enjoy every second we can while the time ticks on.

You are a light, a joy, a goose, a snuggle bunny, peaceful angel baby.  We love you more that words could ever express and you make us happier than we could ever imagine.  You are our heaven, our purpose, our love.

Happy Birthday Coco Bean!!!  Can't wait to spend the next 100 birthdays with you!  (oh yeah...I said it...100 can not get rid of us even if you try...we are yours forever!)

The best of the best...& yes...the worst of the worst...

So we thought "hmmmm let's be edgy...let's write not about the best and not so of the Golden Globes (G2) but of the after parties but after perusing the pics we quickly realized that it would only be a post of the worst because 98% of them were NO all.  

Ssssewwww we are gonna follow the pack (yes, yes we are a day late) and do the G2.  

It truly was a night of fashion fabs...barely any mishaps and when they were it was only because they were boring or not age appropriate..nothing nutso like a Demi Moore biker shorts under a split ball skirt (damn it!...would have been fun to see) 

Because there were sooo many goods we are going to pick our top them beautiful, bold, brazzen or just perfect.

Lucy Liu...fuck yeah.  Thank god for this gorgeous creature.  From the dress to the hair to the make up and jewels (or lack there of) she is perfection.  
On the hanger this Carolina Herrera dress could have looked like a southern belles dream debutante dress (BTW that is not a good thing) but she took a chance and it was worth it.  So futuristic so modern so bold so perfect. 

Jennifer Garner.  Yes!  Ruby red sequin strapless Vivienne Westwood gown?  You had us at Jessica Rabbit!   
The shape, drape, bodice and color were all perfection on you... such a nice way to make us all forget about your "off duty- mom" look of 90s jeans and white sneakers.  Thank you for reminding us of your crazy beauty and grace

Katniss AKA Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture...divine, glam and somehow effortless even though it was a vintage bodice, red satin, chrome belted, strapless ball gown.  You looked gorgeous.  Bravo

And for our #1...the gal that took our breathes away at the exact same moment...Kate Hudson in Alexander Mcqueen.. 

So chic, so glam, so forward yet so 70's.  Bravo your gorgeous hippie...bravo!  You and your team nailed it...jealousy has started.  Crazy style Single White Female style.  

And now for the bad news...sorry but it has to be done.

Dear cutie patootie Taylor Swift...although we are uber mad about your new song (ssshhhh dont tell anyone!) and cant get it out of our heads your dress choice of a maroon satin Donna Karan is all kinds of wrong.  
#1. Satin?   #2.  Tre´bad shape or shall we say dated shape  #3. You are a cute young doesn't mean A. Sequin and tight (your norm) or B. A dress Miranda would have worn for the engagement party for Aiden and Carrie.  

Ummmm Ms. Longoria?  Too much...yup that's it, just TOO TOO much.  Oh that and its dated and not flattering.  Oh and your hair.. 

Halle, Halle, Halle... you have worn this dress 100 too many times.  Yes we too have heard the old adage "if it ain't broke why fix it?" but it is broken.  That time has passed.  
You are one of the sexiest, smartest, most talented out there...take a chance and change it up!  Call our friends Rob and Mariel...they will help.  

Now not to be forgotten 2 honorable mentions...

To the GORGE Rachel Weiss for your super great dress, hair, makeup and your perfect accessory, Daniel Craig...yummmmm

Nicole are always perfection.  Always on par, continually glamorously chic and cute and beautiful.  

 You may have noticed a lack of super models in this post...yes you Miranda and Rosie...but they already have an unfair advantage so we felt it wasn't fair to...well...US!
