Let's talk.

Girls.
Let's talk about a few things, ok?

First:
Have you started reading the Matched trilogy yet?
Please say you have.
If not, get thee to a bookstore and buy it. 
Then, get reading and prepare to become infatuated.
(you can thank me later)
I think I'm enjoying it more than Twilight AND Hunger Games.
And that is saying a lot.

Next:
Are you watching the Bachelor?
Here's how I'm feeling about it so far....
Bachelor Ben is really boring and not that cute.
The girls are really bringing the crazy.
So long, Jenna...the "blogger" who was way kooky and cried constantly.
(Blakely, can you leave next week please?)
Why is the model so strange? And can she quit telling us she's a model?
Who are you pulling for on the show?

Also:
My hilarious friend Katie enlightened me last night;
She told me about a really funny tumblr page called Handmade Ryan Gosling.
Have you seen it yet?
It's a crafter's Ryan Gosling fantasy come true.
And it really makes me laugh. 
Hey girl, check it out and giggle,
while simultaneously swooning over the awesomeness that is Ryan Gosling.

Last:
Have you watched the previews for the upcoming movie "The Vow"?
I'm dying of anticipation.
Rachel McAdams + a really sappy love story + a good looking guy=
one (hopefully) awesome movie. 
Bet you can guess where I will be on Valentine's Day....
(please, please, please, Will? I know you're reading this.)

p.s. In order to celebrate my (almost) 500 followers...something big is happening. Soon.
Here's a hint from Handmade Ryan Gosling:

AHAHAHA! I just died laughing. My husband was asking what's up with all the Ryan Gosling photos he saw me giggling at the other day! Heading over to Amazon to get the ebook of Matched!

Katie said...

Love the bachelor but some of those girls are crazy! Not that it would make me stop watching it! : )

Rach said...

OMG thank you for the ryan gosling website! I'm not a crafter but it was hilarious and totally made my night. I can't wait to see the vow...bringing tons of tissues to that one. Haven't seen a good chick flick in a long time. Congrats on so many followers-not surprising though, your blog/photos/writing are all amazing!

Britt @ The Magnolia Pair said...

I want to read that book! So glad you posted because I've been looking for a good read! And the Vow looks awesome !! I can't wait till it comes out!

XO. Britt

Jesslyn Amber said...

I love your blog. You are too cute. And funny! Congrats on the big 500! I'm your 499th!!! ;)

P.S. I just bought my Kindle Fire. Totally looking into Matched! Thanks girl. :)

Kristin said...

Thanks for the Ryan Gosling website. Hilarious! I've seen those Pins, so there's more out there than what's on the tumblr site. Search for it on Pinterest! :)

The Gists said...

1. I need to pick up that book. I am going to Bangladesh next month, and I need a good book to read on the plane.
2. I CAN"T wait to see The Vow! I think it should be our girls night.

Meri said...

I am cracking up so hardcore at the Ryan Gosling images. I've seen a few of them floating around on pinterest and they always make me laugh out loud. I'll have to check out the Matched series!

Tickled Pink said...

Love everything about this post!! I will check out this book tomorrow! And 100 percent agree about the bachelor!

Lisa N. said...

Ditto on what Olivia said. A girls night out is a great idea!! :) haha

Gwiddle said...

I'll have to look that book up! I still need to read the hunger games. I have them on my kindle. It I'm not much of a reader, until I start. Ha. I love all the Ryan gosling things hahah. Also I wish the vow didn't have Channing Tatem in it. I hate his acting, or lack of. Hahaha I hope you had a great Sunday!

meghan said...

I checked out Matched but didn't get a chance to read it before it was due back. I'll have to get it again. Hunger Games is my fav. This season of the Bachelor is take it or leave it. I'll watch it because my grandma likes it and she talks to me about it (funniest thing ever).

And I can't wait to see the Vow. It looks so so sweet.

Noelani said...

I can not waaait to see 'The Vow' ... Channing Tatum + Rachel McAdams? :)

Andrea said...

Bahahaha these were great!! You made my night :)

I have to admit that i haven't read The Hunger Games yet {did I just admit that??! ahh!} I NEED TO GET THOSE BOOKS ASAP! And now I must read Matched. YAY for new books :)

Emma Frances said...

I definitely read Matched and Crossed! Loved them! :] Those Ryan Gosling photos are HILARIOUS! And I'm excited for your blog giveaway!! YAY for almost 500 followers! Woot! Woot!

Jackie said...

Ok, I need to read that book! I will take your advice and get on it! And I must check out the Ryan Gosling page bc I'm a huge fan. ps. I CAN'T WAIT to see The Vow!!!!!! (that and that other movie w/ Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock) xx

Lula said...

how come you always always look so gorgeous and put together??

how do you do your hair?

Lula said...

what kind of fiction is Matched? Is it wholesome? :P

I watch the Bachelor but I have to confess it's kinda wrong for me, but yeah I watch it anyway, good, huh?

Jenna was sicko, and I am glad Ben saw it quick. I dislike Blakeley like you and the model... can't remember her name.

Alaythea said...

The Ryan Gosling things crack me up! Lol! And seriously?! I'm DYING to see The Vow. So sweet and I may possibly cry through the whole movie! And the Bachelor, I've never watched but this current bachelor isn't even cute. Like, not one bit.

Megan said...

I've never really watched the Bachelor before but I decided to give it a shot this season. Ohmygosh, first of all yes, the dude is boring and then the crying blogger? I just... It's such a trainwreck that I find myself not being able to stop watching. The Ryan Gosling tumblr is just perfection.

My Journey With Candida said...

I can't wait for the Vow movie. I am making the Hubs go see it.

I think the bachelor had to dig to the bottom of the barrel to come up with Ben. You are right.. he is NOT cute. He must have money or those girls would be fleeing.

Shannon McHale said...

So funny! Thanks for the book recommendation, I am always looking for a new series to read so I am definitely going to check it out.

The Frat Pack + Me said...

Love this post! You made me laugh from the Bachelor bits (which I don't watch, but I am not above that kind of thing since I love me some Real Housewives) to the Ryan Gosling parts. I love Rachel McAdams too!!

Alyx said...

Thought I'd make your day a little happier and become the big five zero zero.
And I so need to read those books. I'm a little behind, though, and am just NOW starting the Hunger Games. Yeah, I'm always the book loser that's a step behind the rest of the world.
As for "The Vow.." Holy sexiness. I'm not so much a fan of Rachel McAdams, but Channing Tatum is another story. Guy is hot. Very hot. And that movie looks really good.
Hope you're having a great day!

The Listener said...

Whoop Whoop! Congrats Swoop on reaching the BIG 500. Cute post Swoop. I am just not to sure if Hudson will sit through The Vow. I guess we can try it though.

LOVE YOU!!!

Brianna said...

Lol, can't tell you how much I love this post. What is Matched about? If there is romance or fantasy, you can guarantee your butt i'll be in the book store!

And I cannot waaait to watch The Vow! I trust Rachel Mcadams will not displease us! She is great in lovey movies! :)

Ana said...

Thanks for letting me know about that movie! I guess I know what we'll be watching soon!

Amber said...

I love that Ryan tumblr page. It always makes me laugh

Shutterbug said...

I love your blog post today! it's so much fun! I'm also looking forward too the "The Vow." and I don't even care if it's cheesy. I love cheesy romantic movies! i'm checking that ryan gosling tumblr site. so funny! And i'm not impressed with any of those bachelor girls. they are way too whiny and annoying. i don't care who ben ends up with.

Courtney B said...

YES! Love Matched! When you're finished with Matched and Crossed you MUST read the mortal instrument series. The first one is City of Bones. I love this serious SO much! More than Hunger Games and Matched. Seriously.
Second, I am so behind on the Bachelor but I'm excited to catch up on the episodes.
Last, aaaaahh! Why can't we live close to each other so that we could double date on over to see The Vow? I'm DYING to see it!

misc.alaina said...

I am not fully caught up on the taped Bachelor episodes, but from first impressions I liked Emily, Amber T., Jamie, and Dianna - I think! Ryan Gosling is a funny guy - ha! I do like Rachel McAdam's movies!

Ashley Slater said...

everything about this post is great! BEN is a DUD on the bachelor! I am going to get that book and I can't wait for the vow annnnnnd ryan gosling tumblr? SOLD.!

Sarah said...

haha i loved how you crafted this post! amazing work ashley! and i'm gonna go look up on "matched". sounds tempting enough!

i've not heard or seen anything about the vow... but! channing tatum! i love him! and rachel mcadams! she's too lovely. i really do hope it'll turn out an awesome movie. if not, just watching channing tatum would suffice. for me. haha. :D

and congrats on 500 followers! totally deserving. :) x

Haley K said...

oh the bachelor...i can't resist it ;) I've got to admit I'm a fan of Ben, but I do agree with both of your observations about those 2 girls. There are definitely some crazies this season (like always;) I didn't watch tonight's episode...I recorded it and might be watching it tomorrow. Okay let's be real, i will most DEFINITELY be watching it tomorrow ;)

and The Vow!!! can.not.wait.

Whitney said...

Ha those Ryan Gosling pictures are hilarious! I love that last one.

So... matched huh? Man I need to get on the bandwagon with ALL those books. I've never ead any of them.. and.. blush, I've never even read the HP books either =(
In my defense I have so very little time to read! ha!

Susan said...

My daughter LOVED "Matched"..... i mean LOVED it! And I can't wait for "The Vow" either.

Victoria / Justice Pirate said...

I haven't heard of The Vow (I am sure I will look forward to it too), but I did read Matched's first two books (of course the third isn't even out yet). I loved the first book but not so much the second. I hope the third will blow my mind!

Shalyn said...

LOVE Matched and Crossed! I don't know if better than The Hunger Games but definitely close! And ewww to the stripper girl on The Bachelor- GO HOME!

Elizabeth said...

I was JUST saying I needed a new series to read, so thanks for the Matched suggestion! So glad you are watching The Bachelor...Ben is as boring as toast. But, I am loving the crazies! Hope y'all are well!

Brooke said...

Oh my goodness I love MATCHED. I haven't read Crossed yet though! I think I'm going to go re-read Matched and then by the next one :) AND I can't wait to see the Vow. Surprisingly, Mr. Charming said he wanted to see it too!

thedemuremuse.com said...

I haven't read Matched yet... sounds like a good book if you're putting it up there with Twilight and The Hunger Games (another series that I have also yet to start but have heard really good things about)!

OMG THE BACHELOR!! I really don't think Ben is all that interesting either. So I was bad and read some spoilers... you are not going to be happy with who he ends up with. Let's just say that I want Blakeley gone really badly too!
