Peanut Butter Fudge, Hurt Knees, and the Golden Globes

Those three things have been the biggest events of my weekend so far. Let me explain: The Tracy Anderson dance cardio video I recently posted about ended up doing real damage to my already fragile knees (I've had surgery on one but they both still have congenital issues that have to do with how my bones are aligned). For four days now they have been swollen, aching, and get worse the longer I walk around or stand on them. So let that be a warning to people who have joint issues, dance cardio might not be for you :(

In better news, one of my best friends Kelly came over last night after we both matching pajama sets at Victoria's Secret's semi annual sale (along with a bag full of other goodies...but we won't talk about that) and we drank wine and wanted to make something together so we decided to make this delicious peanut butter fudge! We ended up replacing peanut butter for sunbutter, ran out of honey and replaced what we were lacking with molasses, and Miss Kelly had the genius idea to sprinkle some coffee grounds on top along with the chocolate chips (I was a little wary of this at first but man did I so not need to be!). It ended up being one of the best things my tongue has ever come in contact with! You MUST make it but remember to keep it in the freezer! We left ours out a bit too long and it started melting.

Now I am eagerly counting down the hours till the Golden Globes!!! I watching the whole thing--from the red carpet arrivals to the after shows including the fashion police (I know, I'm a little obsessed) and this year my dad has made a date to watch the ceremony with me. I know he's not nearly as into it as I am and probably won't be watching all the pre and post stuff with me but I'm excited I won't be watching downstairs in out media room all alone in the dark. He's the greatest.

My predictions for the Golden Globe winners? I predict James Franco for 127 Hours for best actor in a drama, Natalie Portman for Black Swan for best actress in a drama, Cristian Bale and Amy Adams for The Fighter in best supporting acting in a drama, and maybe Inception for best motion picture, drama? That one is tough, as are the comedy categories. You never know what they're gonna pick for that category. I'm rooting for Burlesque for best motion picture, comedy or musical, Johnny Depp for Alice in Wonderland for best actor in a comedy or musical (you really can never go wrong with Johnny Depp, although I don't think The Tourist was his best role), and Emma Stone for best actress in Easy A. Although I heard that Julianne Moore and Annette Bening were both incredible in The Kids Are All Right as well as Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs. Looks like I should have watched more movies! Ok, maybe that's impossible for me. What are you're predictions? Let's see how many I'm right about!
