This Week in Photos - volume 5 .. a whole lot of Crazy Stupid Love


I realize this post is a day late. My bad.

No actually, you know what? NOT my bad. It is our stupid cable company's bad for whatever was up with the wireless out in the boondocks last night. read: I was at my parents summer home out at the ocean and the wireless hated me.

BUT here I am - a day later, making sure that this post gets to you. #likeaboss #clearly

So here we go....

volume 5

#1 Saturday Muddy Saturday aka Me, U2, + 75,000 other people

As I mentioned in last Friday's post - U2 came to my humble little city last Saturday. And while the rain stopped in time for the concert, that didn't stop it from releasing every ounce of rain from the skies above in the hours leading up to it.

This obviously led to MUD - lot's and lot's of MUD.

smart girls wear rainboots to muddy concerts
I'm obviously smart

But all of the mud did not stop us from enjoying what was seriously one of the BEST concerts I have ever been to in my entire life - a statement, I know 75,000 people who were there would agree with (except for those who maybe slipped in the mud and hate mud - they may be hatin U2 right about now).

THAT is not the face of someone hatin U2
That is the face of someone LOVING U2

And when life hands you MUD - why not make the best of it?

"Sunday Bloody Sunday"?
How about - "Saturday Muddy Saturday"?
Clearly U2 should get on this.

#2 Crazy Stupid Love aka the movie I crazily, stupidly, loved, MADLY

I still remember when the trailer for this came out. I attribute the memory more to the fact that I pretty much needed to be resuscitated but I figure it had a lot to do with it being one of my favorite trailers of 2011.

And I LOVE movie trailers.

BUT seriously. This movie OWNED me. If you have not seen it yet - you really do not know what you're missing.

So please allow me to show you.


No really - I COULD tell you about how Steve Carell is perfect in this movie and how I actually have a massive crush on him. No lie. I LOVE Steve Carell. I could also tell you that the storylines and characters are perfection. I could tell you it has a killer soundtrack featuring my favorite song by the Dead Weather. I could also tell you it's a kind of perfect, sexy, humor. And I could stress a thousand times that Emma Stone is lovely in it and Josh Groban should stick to singing.

But let's face it - I spent the whole movie like THIS

yes Emma
I get it
Ryan Gosling does that to me too

I'm pretty sure Ryan Gosling left me breathless throughout the entire movie. I'm also fairly certain I told my friend S who I was with a dozen times "I want a Ryan Gosling/Jacob." And before you get your panties in a knot - Ryan Gosling's character in Crazy Stupid Love is named Jacob. I didn't momentarily lose my mind.

But no really - I cannot.

is there a stronger word than UNF?
Then i'm about to picspam the hell out of you
with the same photo
because its just that hot


oh and just because....

this movie basically killed me.
THOSE TWO killed me.

Go see it. NOW.

And Lastly - as always, This Week in Photos, the best of P i n t e r e s t



this one is for @kate_suena
and isn't it the truth?
because forehead kisses lead to this....

l o v e

Until next time....

[A/N: 1) I apologize that this post might have been a little rushed. summer has been HECTIC but I didn't want to leave anyone hanging. If I can get one point across from this post its this - GO SEE CRAZY STUPID LOVE. Also? See U2 in concert in your lifetime. No really. 2) I am working on launching my own website/blog in the upcoming weeks. I'm insanely nervous/excited but I hope you will all check it out once it is up! If you follow me on twitter @takemetobliss you will definitely know when it happens. - C]

I've been failing at comments later. Damend life outside my laptop being intrusive!

But WHOA I need to see Crazy, Stupid, Love like NOW!!! Oh yeah, it doesn't premiére here until Sept. *headdesk*

Argh! I am CYING to see Crazy, Stupid Love but it doesn't come out here til late September :'( Grrrrr. I like to trawl through my local cinemas "coming soon" pages and go YT trailers - this is definitely a fave. I haven't been this excited to see a movie since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (yes, I am one of THOSE people, haha). Eeeeeee! The Gos kills me. UNF. So much love. I watched him on.... I *think* it was Kimmel where he had his dog? PRECIOUS! (Actually, it might've even been Fallon... I can't remember! I do know that I have a bit of a crush on Fallon...). Also, YES to Steve Carell! Not so much with the crush, but I really love him. I can see why you would be crushing, though!
