Don't take life so seriously!

I didn't watch the Oscar's last night, I wasn't feeling well and decided to go to bed early. Listening to my body and giving it what it needed much needed rest.

I love the Oscars even when I haven't seen every movie nominated, I end the evening with a wish-list of movies to add to my Redbox desires. In previous years I've thrown Oscar night parties, one year guests dressed up in their ball gowns, another year kids and adults wore their pajamas and we had pack-n-plays in every available bedroom so that the adults could stay up and "party".

So last night I missed the Chicago reunion that everyone on Facebook was talking about this morning, I missed the major trip up the stairs by Jennifer Lawrence. And I missed making my list of movies to see.

When a friend posted this video on Facebook (Thanks Sara!) I cracked up laughing. I love how honest Jennifer Lawrence is and it's a great reminder for all of us to not take life so darn seriously!

I laugh every time too Gretchen when I see this video. Jennifer seems so down to earth and what a joy it is to see that in an actress.
